The centerpiece of this 260-acre golf resort is a white Greek Revival inn that's been taking in travelers since its opening in 1805. The rooms, although updated, retain the flavor of the past, with antiques, Victorian-inspired wallpaper, and wide-plank floors; some have fireplaces. Several attractive motel-style buildings surround the inn. If you tire of golf, you can fish in Batavia Kill or wander the grounds. Meals are served in the main building, where the excellent
Messina's La Griglia ($$–$$$; no lunch) has three comfortable dining rooms with a mostly white-on-white decor; the fare is northern Italian. You can savor mussels, capellini with shrimp and scallops in white-wine sauce, or roast duck in fig-and-honey sauce while eyeing the golf course's 9th hole through the large windows.
