As cooler weather brings autumn leaves around the United States, there’s no need to rough it. Check out this list to see six hotels that really celebrate fall in fine luxury style.
#1 Old Edwards Inn and Spa, North Carolina
This European-style property, which consists of a historical inn, upscale lodge and 25 cottages, sprawls across several acres in downtown Highlands. It’s a seamless blend of historical and modern, with a wood-paneled library, antique furnishings and Old World décor alongside sinfully soft Frette linens.
#2 Lake Placid Lodge, New York
For a quintessential fall experience, head straight to the Adirondacks, a protected area in northern New York that’s bigger than Yellowstone, Everglades, Glacier and Grand Canyon National Park combined. Most striking from the water, this gorgeous stone and wood retreat is the only hotel located directly on the shores of Lake Placid.
#3 Castle In The Country: Allegan, Michigan
This family-run B&B is housed in a 100-year-old pastel Victorian on 65 acres in southwest Michigan. With a stargazing deck and outdoor fireplace, it’s a royally romantic place to grab a blanket and snuggle up. Breakfasts are made from scratch with fresh ingredients from local farms.
#4 The Ranch At Rock Creek: Philipsburg, Montana
In keeping with its roots, the 6,600-acre ranch offers an abundance of activities such as horseback riding, fly fishing and shooting. From the food to the rooms, the entire experience is a thoughtful blend of Western adventure and lavish luxury.
#5 Salish Lodge & Spa: Snoqualmie, Washington
Thanks to an on-site apiary, the hotel is also famous for its honey. You’ll find the results at the spa and on the menu — most famously drizzled atop its homemade biscuits. Activities include hiking or paddling your way through the misty Cascade Mountains and nearby waterways.
#6 The Lodge At Moosehead Lake: Greenville, Maine
If you’re looking for a true getaway, try this idyllic B&B in rugged Maine. Each of the nine rooms is decorated in a style befitting its location, with four-poster beds, thick blankets and rustic touches such as antlers and antique snowshoes.
