Fodor's Review

It's hard not to feel like an aristocrat at this exquisite turn-of-the-20th-century Tudor-style inn, one of the most memorable properties in the country. What could easily be a museum with "Do Not Touch" signs posted everywhere is instead, for all intents and purposes, your private mansion. Perched at the edge of Lake Champlain, the grounds are vast; views include the distant Adirondacks, as well as the sea of pastures and woods that make up the 1,400-acre working farm on which the mansion is situated. Kayak in the lake, laze on one of the many elegant porches, read a book in the library, or stroll through the elegantly manicured gardens. Each guest room is different, featuring various period wallpapers, high-end antiques, and other decorative touches, without making you feel like a player in a costume drama. President Theodore Roosevelt slept in the bed in Empire Room, which maintains the original furnishings. The dining room serves a spectacular brunch and is the very picture of romance in the evening. Even if you're not staying here, there are sporadic tours of the inn's main floor, a few bedrooms, and the formal gardens.
