Fodor's Expert Review Boulders Inn

E. Shore Rd., New Preston, Connecticut, 06777, USA Fodor's Choice

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

The most idyllic and prestigious of the inns along Lake Waramaug opened in 1940 but still looks like the private home it was a century ago. Apart from the main house, a carriage house and several hillside cottages command panoramic views of the countryside and the lake. The rooms, four with double whirlpool baths and most with deep soaking tubs, contain Victorian antiques and wood-burning fireplaces. You can book a facial or massage in the small but well-outfitted spa.

PROS

  • spectacular setting, gorgeous furnishings, terrific restaurant on-site

CONS
