No. 7 Tides Inn, Irvington, VA
Fresh lemonade and cookies greet guests upon arrival at this luxurious waterside resort, wedged between the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay—and with its own sailing school. You can hit the croquet lawn or the lush links at Golden Eagle Golf Club, carved around a 50-acre lake; junior tees are available. End your day with complimentary s’mores, served on silver platters.
