Old Edwards Inn and Spa, Highlands, NC
Outdoorsy types fall for this historic stone-and-brick resort that delivers English manor charm amid the fresh air of the Blue Ridge Mountains. After a welcoming champagne toast, you can choose your own adventure: whitewater rafting, hiking, gem mining, biking, or secluded lakeside picnicking. Flanked by a world-class golf course, the resort sets the romantic mood with storybook cottages, waterfall-side dining, a cave-enclosed whirlpool, and an outdoor heated mineral pool.
