No. 5 Keswick Hall, Charlottesville, VA
With its laird-of-the-manor grandeur, Keswick Hall evokes the old-guard spirit in the Blue Ridge Mountains more than any other hotel. In a stately Tuscan-style structure originally built in 1912, the 48 guest rooms are decorated with a mix of hunt-club prints, canopy beds, and Chippendale chairs. Cast your line at Keswick Hall’s Broadmoor Lake, well stocked with rainbow trout, bass, crappie, and sunfish.
