Stepping into this hilltop 1902 Tudor style mansion, you might think you've walked into a lavish film set. There's a palpable cinematic quality in the richly paneled bedrooms and the common rooms containing part of the owners' vast art collection. All of it makes an ideal setting for the seasonal murder-mystery evenings. Besides the main inn, five guest buildings are spread over the 20-acre grounds, which are dotted with fascinating sculptures collected and created by
innkeeper Albert Levis. The dining room is an elegant affair, with a menu to match—entrées might include poached Maine lobster with gnocchi or a roasted antelope chop with Bordelaise sauce.
