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.
