Rosario Resort and Spa

1400 Rosario Rd., Eastsound, Washington, 98245, United States

Shipbuilding magnate Robert Moran built this Arts and Crafts–style waterfront mansion in 1909, and it is now the centerpiece of a 40-acre resort that comprises several different buildings with sweeping views of Cascade Bay and Rosario Point—accommodations range from moderately priced standard guest rooms to deluxe one- and two-bedroom suites with fireplaces, decks, and full kitchens. The house, on the National Register of Historic Places and worth a visit even if you're not staying here, has retained its original Mission-style furniture and numerous antiques; its centerpiece, an Aeolian organ with 1,972 pipes, is used for year-round concerts in the music room. You can hike, whale-watch, and kayak nearby or stay in for a day of pampering in the on-site spa. The Mansion restaurant is a romantic, sophisticated dinner option.
