America's Best Hotels for Fall Colors

Ashby Inn, Paris, VA
About 20 miles from Skyline Drive—one of the country’s best foliage routes—you’ll pull over at the Ashby. Built in 1829, the inn welcomed Stonewall Jackson during the Civil War and retains a refined country look. Ten rooms are decorated with 19th-century furniture, Oriental carpets, and four-poster beds. And the restaurant is a destination in itself, serving farm fare like roasted beet soup and braised rabbit. Doubles from $160.
Room to Book: The Settle Room has a wood-burning fireplace and a private porch with Adirondack chairs overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Get Outdoors: Put on your hiking boots and walk under the foliage umbrella of Sky Meadows State Park, a half mile away.
