8601 N. Thorne La. S.W., 12 miles south of Tacoma, Lakewood, Washington, 98498, United States

Spread over four lush acres along beautiful American Lake, this 27,000-square-foot, Gothic Tudor–style mansion built in 1908 has hosted two American presidents,William Howard Taft and Theodore Roosevelt, and surrounds current guests with medieval stained-glass windows, gleaming wood floors, large mirrors, antiques, fireplaces, and hot tubs. From the lakeside patio and sunken garden—designed by the Olmsted Brothers—you can meditate on the spectacular sunsets.
