Lobby Piano

The resort's famous piano was built in 1905 by the Stodart Piano Company out of New York and is a California Bungalow Baby Grand. 

One of the original owners was Clark Gable, star of “Gone with the Wind.” He gave the piano to his wife, Carole Lombard, as an anniversary gift.

It was later acquired by the amazing songwriter and composer, Hoagy Carmichael, who wrote many popular songs such as “Stardust”, “Georgia on My Mind”, “Heart and Soul”, “Skylark”, “Small Fry”, and “I Get Along Without You Very Well.” Hoagy appeared in the movie “To Have and Have Not” starring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, playing this very piano while singing with Ms. Bacall.
