Scotty Cade started writing stories as soon as he could read. When not at the inn he runs with Kell, his husband of over twenty years, you can find him on the bow of his boat writing romance novels with his Shetland sheepdog, Mavis, at his side. He believes that, in the end, the boy should always ge…

Scotty Cade hails from “The Big Easy,” none other than New Orleans Louisiana. He attended Louisiana State University and shortly after joining a high-tech, company in New Orleans was transferred to Atlanta, Georgia where his career took off and ultimately landed him the position of Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing and Public Relations for an international payments processor. Georgia is where he met Kell, the love of his life. Ten years ago, after being in corporate America for over twenty-five years, Kell and Scotty gave up the rat race and bought a small hotel and restaurant on the island of Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts. From the beginning, they worked 24/7 building the business from the ground up and about four years into their venture, fighting burnout, hired a general manager to take over and took a year off to decompress. For the first time in their lives, with little to do but relax, Scotty finally had time to attempt a story that had been nagging at him for as long as he could remember…and that is how his first novel, Final Encore was born. It took a full year to write and once Scotty built up the nerve to submit it to a publisher, Dreamspinner Press picked it up almost immediately. He has not stopped writing since and after ten published novels, he is still going strong.
Together since 1998: 17 years.

“Kell and I lived in the same neighborhood and one day as I drove by his house I saw him on a ladder in his front yard cleaning out his gutters. I had no idea if he was gay, but I was immediately smitten and determined to find out. Luckily, there was a house for sale next door to his and the next time I saw him in his yard, I stopped and pretended to be interested in the house. He came walking over with a broad smile and that is how it all started. We have been together monogamously for over seventeen years and recently married in August of this past year. He is the most loving, kind, generous, and unselfish man I’ve ever had the privilege of meeting and I love him dearly.” After his first novel, Scotty was hooked on writing gay fiction and Kell convinced him that they should split their time between their business and his writing. They purchased a forty-two foot motor yacht called “One Mo Time,” which is where most of Scotty’s writing is now done. During the summer, they work part time and travel the waters of New England with their Shetland sheepdog, Mavis and in October, they become snowbirds and cruise down south to relax for the winter. -Scotty Cade

The Lambert’s Cove Inn, Farm & Restaurant is known as one of the most romantic retreats on Martha’s Vineyard. Situated on 7 acres of spacious lawns, gardens, forest and meadows in the pastoral town of West Tisbury, the well appointed inn and award-winning restaurant offers tranquility, seclusion, and unmatched hospitality. Owners took steps to return the Inn to its XVIII century agricultural roots by expanding the produce garden and adding 50 hens to provide fresh eggs daily. In addition, they have two future cheese makers — Ava and Zsa Zsa — friendly and adorable goats.

Place
The estate dates back to 1790 and was originally a farmhouse. As you enter the front door and foyer, you are immediately aware of the English country décor accented by warm colors and elegant, but comfortable furnishings. To the left there is the comfortably stylish Red Room, decorated with mahogany leather furnishings with several cozy sitting areas for reading, listening to music or just relaxing in front of the fireplace. To the right there is the more formal club room decorated in dark green, royal blue and a just hint of gold. Straight ahead and to the right lies the library and Main Dining rooms with fireplaces, a 100 year old grand piano and French doors opening out onto the beautiful salt mineral pool, spa, and expansive patio. Although all rooms offer data ports, the upstairs foyer offers a study complete with telephone and computer for checking e-mail or simply searching the internet. The main house has beautifully decorated guest rooms as well as our renovated carriage house and guest house and the eight additional guests rooms.
