This Relais & Châteaux property takes the prize for opulence with guest rooms spacious and elegant enough for French nobility, 18th- and 19th-century antiques and reproductions, canopy beds dressed in luxe linens, and gas-burning fireplaces. Most of the white-marble bathrooms have spa tubs in addition to enormous showers. Rooms on the third floor have 20-foot ceilings that make them feel particularly large, whereas second-floor rooms have a slightly more understated
style. Wine and cheese are served every evening in the library, which is sumptuously paneled with hand-carved black walnut.
