No. 14 Keswick Hall, Charlottesville, VA
This stately 48-room lodge in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains goes for a handsome, old-guard aesthetic (hunt-club prints, Chippendale chairs aplenty). Private Virginia wine country vineyard tours with the sommelier of its lauded restaurant, Fossett’s, can be arranged, along with self-guided or chauffeured tours down nearby Route 151, a scenic highway passing through many of Charlottesville’s top wineries. Fossett’s also serves local bottles and hosts themed wine dinners several times a month.
