Bond inspired name for mountain house

Our family just bought a home on the mountains. We’re trying to come up with a name for the home that is somehow Bond related, though not too obvious. Something with a little wrinkle to it. Please share any recommendations!! Generally looking for something simple. To give you an idea of where our heads are at, below are some that have been bandied about:

- Solitaire (reference to Jane Seymour and also evokes a feeling of solitude, which matches mountains as an escape from city life)
-Skyfall (too obvious to anyone that is a Bond fan, of course...perhaps adding something after it (cabin?) would make it more ours)
- Goldeneye Estate (reference to movie is obvious, but it was also the name of Ian Fleming’s home in Jamaica...most would not get the subtlety there)

    Welcome! Since it’s on the mountains I would name it Piz Gloria. Or maybe name it Terence, after actor Terence Mountain, who played thugs in a few Bond films.

    Bond's favourite coffee was Jamaican Blue Mountain, so maybe somthing there?

    Or Quarterdeck, the name of M's estate?

    On the whole though, I'd go with Matt's suggestion of Piz Gloria, and John Barry's beautiful Mountains and Sunsets from YOLT should be your theme!

    Why not Skyfall Lodge?

    I reckon first thought best thought—I think Solitaire is a great name for it! Like you said, it has that Bond connection, but also captures the solitude of the mountain house.

    I'll throw out a name........Pinewood.
    Some people would complain even if you hang them with a new rope

    I too prefer Solitaire. It's classy and works fine for people who aren't into Bond, but Bond fans will apriciate even more.

    Solitaire sounds quite classy - just hope no one thinks your obsessed with board games.

    Though it was a setting for lurid events, what about Dreamy Pines from the novel, TSWLM? Then there’s St. Cyrill, the monestary on top of the Meteora rock escarpment in FYEO. Hoffler Clinic from SP would sound cool, but Google Maps might direct a lot of unsuspecting sick people to your house.

    First of all, thanks everyone for the excellent recommendations. I think the leader is currently Solitaire for the reasons stated above, but no final decision yet.
