The hotel quickly received national attention and was placed on the Conde Nast Hot List in 2012. The Attwater sold in 2017 and Lark was retained to continue management.

Case Study


The Inn at the Moors was a 30 room drive up vintage motor lodge surrounded by parking lots in Provincetown, MA. It’s unmatched views inspired us to reimagine the front parking lot into a lush private retreat featuring a pool, game areas, multiple fire pits and private patios for each room. The 3rd floor owners quarters was turned into the signature Lark Suite and the office was transformed into a coffee and cocktails bar; AWOL was born.

Great Word of Mouth

  • Owner, The Edgartown Collection, Gilded, The Attwater, Cliffside Inn

    Anne Tamer Hajjar

    “I chose Lark Hotels because of their expertise with the boutique segment. Their attention to detail, their drive to make every guest have the best hotel experience ever, and their innovative ideas to stay relevant in a very competitive market, are the top reasons that made them stand out in the crowd for me.”
  • Owner and Investor

    Jay Bisognano

    “I choose to invest in hotel projects with Lark Hotels because of their ownership mentality and the access I have to their leadership team. They never forget that I have trusted them to be stewards of my capital. I couldn’t be happier with their ROI driven approach to hotel development.”
  • Owner/Developer, Hotel Marblehead

    Richard Cooper

    “Lark has been managing Hotel Marblehead for less than a year and they are already bringing more money to the bottom line than we were able to in any year since we purchased the hotel in 2011.”
  • Developer, COO Hatteras Sky

    Amy Michaelson Kelly

    "We interviewed some very impressive management companies for our Asheville hotels. Lark stood out to us because of their unmatched experience with the curated boutique product type and the level of sophistication they bring to make boutique hotel ownership profitable."

Our Capabilities

Our approach is grounded in relationship building and knowledge sharing. We are here to serve as advisors and partners in bringing your vision to life. Every project presents unique challenges, and it’s our life’s work to overcome them while maintaining the special quirks that set each property apart.

Experience-driven design
through every detail

Memories aren’t made in generic hotels—brand loyalists fall in love with properties that reflect a sense of place. Lark’s principals Rob Blood and Megan Kennedy also oversee an affiliate design studio, Elder & Ash, which works to identify and tell the story of a property through architecture, interior design, music, lighting, and more. That’s why no two Lark Hotels properties look alike, but they all have the same warm feel. And we’re not the only ones that think so—our design has been raved about in publications like Architectural Digest, Vogue, and Elle Decor.
