The rambling Victorian-era hotel—a jumble of towers, chimneys, porches, and turrets—sits at the edge of a mountaintop lake. The resort's 1,200 acres encompass private woodland and elaborate gardens and overflow with options for recreation, including 85 miles of hiking trails. Antiques fill the guest rooms, which are luxurious and spacious. The on-site spa includes an indoor heated pool with mountain views, a solarium with a fireplace, a fitness center, and full-service
salon. Choice accommodations in the towers have original Victorian woodwork, wood-burning fireplaces, and balconies. Your room rate includes three meals daily, plus afternoon tea and cookies, and most resort activities. Breakfast and lunch are buffet-style; dinner is a formal affair (men may want to wear jackets). Four self-catering cottages, which sleep four to six people, are also available and include full kitchens.
