Fodor's Review

It's hard not to feel a little bit 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 largely your private mansion. Perched at the edge of Lake Champlain, the grounds are vast. Kayak in the lake, laze on the many elegant porches, read the books in the library, or stroll through the elegantly manicured gardens.

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. Each 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. Teddy Roosevelt slept in the bed in Empire Room, which maintains the original furnishings. The dining room is open for three meals and is romance itself in the evening.
