America's Best Hotels for Fall Colors

Plan your leaf-peeping trip around one of these inns with spectacular views of fall colors.

Otesaga Resort Hotel, Cooperstown, NY

9 of 21

Built in 1909, this Federal-style 132-room resort makes a grand first impression thanks to 30-foot pillars and a lengthy walkway up to the entrance. Wide verandas face out at Lake Otsego, dubbed the Glimmerglass (now the name of the new a la carte restaurant), and the manicured grounds. Business casual is still required for dinner—jackets optional—at this old-world hotel: breakfast is still included and afternoon tea is complimentary. Doubles from $369.

Room to Book: Room 340, a Grand Lake View Suite, is the largest guestroom, with high ceilings, great views, a parlor, and the resort’s typical florals on the drapes and furnishings. 

Get Outdoors: Rent a canoe or paddleboard from the resort to see the foliage from a lakeside perspective.
