Built in the 19th century as a summer getaway by Lila Vanderbilt Webb, this stately, brick mansion with bay windows on the shores of Lake Champlain has 24 rooms and four cottages that are available from May to October. Many include original furniture and decoration like poster beds; gilt, marble-topped tables; vanities; and floral wallpaper. Lake swimming, tennis, canoeing, and croquet are available as are guided tours of the 1,400-acre property laid out by Central Park designer Frederick Law Olmsted. The acclaimed ground-floor restaurant sources many of its ingredients from the on-site organic farm.

Room to Book:

Named after the former lady of the house, Lila’s room offers the best views of the lake. Be sure to book several months ahead of time.

Insider Tip:

As rooms contain no air conditioning or heating, make sure to dress accordingly for sleep.
