Fodor's Review

Built in 1916 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Van Gilder is steeped in local history. Early-20th-century photos of Seward adorn the walls, beds are brass or carved wood, and the common rooms foster a cozy bed-and-breakfast feel. This is definitely not a mass-market chain hotel, and the extremely friendly staff gives tours of the property, pointing out interesting historical information. Spend time in the common kitchen area, in the sitting room

with books of local interest, or by the player piano in the lobby.
