Checking In: The Rory Gilmore Pool House Suite

Over a decade later (and a revival I could debate for hours on end), the original Gilmore Girls series still remains one of my all-time favorite TV shows. The same age as Rory Gilmore’s character, I was inspired by everything from her wardrobe to her never-ending reading list throughout my high school and college years. Would I have dove into the desperate world of Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina, learned about Ayn Rand or embraced the mini skirt and jumper combination without a little nudge from Rory? I’m doubtful.

Although the focus of the show was never on interiors per se, the quaint little town of Stars Hollow and the homes featured in it always resonated with me as warm, inviting, and most importantly, exuding quirky personality. All this considered, it’s somewhat ironic that one of my favorite interior moments from Gilmore Girls — one that’s stuck with me for all these years — has less to do with personality and more to do with kind-hearted presumption.

After a handful of dramatic events that lead to Rory dropping out school, she moves into her affluent grandparents’ pool house. Wanting to give her grandchild the home she wasn’t able to give her own daughter, Rory’s grandmother Emily goes all out on creating a space that she believes to be everything a 21-year-old woman could want when life tastes bitter. Is it Rory? No. But is it fun, colorful, playful, easy breezy, sleek, chic and oh so 2005? Yes. Do I love it? Yes!

Without further ado, let me welcome you to the Rory Gilmore Pool House Suite — what I imagine to be the most stylishly uplifting Airbnb rental in fictional Hartford, CT.
