According to Mr. Eden, on the hotel's web site; "The movie Criss Cross starring Goldie Hawn was filmed at the Eden House for five months over the summer of 1990. Scott Summers wrote the short story Criss Cross while staying at the Eden House in early 1976." The Eden House is still in business and has been totally renovated since the movie. See more »
