Our Story

Charlotte & Henry


In December 2008, the Prince Albert II set sail for Antarctica, carrying 85 high school students and several hundred pounds of candy.* Henry and Charlotte, both seventeen years old, were on board. Charlotte was on a break from her committed relationship with the Hotchkiss Library. Henry, best known at the time for having an extremely red face, sanguinely held out hope for a rosier romantic future.

Encouraged by a group of loyal wingpersons, the two began to stroll the decks and abuse chocolate together, taking in the glaciers of Antarctica and the stormy seas of the Drake Passage. Back at school, Charlotte accepted three invitations for “walk-backs” from the main building to her dormitory—the school ritual for making things official.

A few months later, Henry went off to UNC. The following year, Charlotte started at Yale. The separation was punctuated by frequent Skype calls, visits to Chapel Hill, New Haven, the Ross farm in New Hartford, and trips to Asia, Africa, and Europe. Through it all, they always dreamed of being together in New York City, where Charlotte was raised. So, after graduating in 2013, Henry moved to Bangkok.

Charlotte is currently pursuing venture capital at New Enterprise Associates, while Henry will join Sullivan & Cromwell upon graduation from Columbia Law School in May. They are grateful for the love and support of their families and friends, many of whom they look forward to welcoming to Lakeville in August.

*The trip was generously sponsored by Forrest Mars Jr. of the Mars candy company.

Things to Do


With its quiet roads and spotty cell service, Lakeville is the place to go to get away from it all. Every time we return, we go back in time—back to the carefree days of wandering the Hotchkiss campus and watching the fog roll out over Lake Wononscopomuc on our way to class each morning.

Lakeville is the place where Charlotte learned to love (or at least appreciate) the beauty of nature and all it has to offer. We hope you will explore the neighboring towns and beautiful landscapes. Please reach out to us with any questions.
