Fodor's Review

Beautiful gardens and a hilltop location with marvelous views over the lake distinguish this 1891 country estate, considered one of New England's top inns. The guest rooms are spacious; all have sitting areas, and four have fireplaces. You can expect fine furnishings and antiques, plush bedding, and elegant baths, most with oversize tubs (one is an original claw-foot). Owners Ruth and Dan McLaughlin delight in offering relaxed luxury and thoughtful extras, from arranging in-room massages to putting flowers in the guest rooms. Open Thursday through Saturday from mid-June to mid-October, the restaurant serves a five-course prix-fixe dinner that creatively incorporates seasonal vegetables and herbs from the inn's gardens. Arrive early to enjoy cocktails—and that view—from the veranda or the swank cocktail lounge.
