This four-diamond B&B has 17 elegant guest rooms with working fireplaces, personalized menus, and complimentary nighttime cordials and sweets. You may even receive special turndown service—rumor has it that certain rooms get mysteriously delivered weather-report cards and scrumptious praline cookies, which the bellman or house-keeping discover when they arrive for the day.
