Carson Ridge Luxury Cabins

Carson Ridge Luxury Cabins

Carson, WA

Past guests promise that every corner of Carson Ridge Luxury Cabins is magazine worthy. Known for elegant and extra-cozy accommodations along the Hood River, Carson Ridge was practically designed for your Instagram feed. Expect cabins with a distinctly serene vibe and “every amenity you could want,” from rainfall showers to the “warm baked chocolate chip cookies waiting for us at the lobby.” (Yes, please!) That signature warmth extends to innkeepers Theresa and Richard, who “went above and beyond to ensure their guests were well taken care of,” whipping up delicious breakfasts best enjoyed among the Pacific Northwest pines.

 

 


 

The Landmark Inn

The Landmark Inn

Cooperstown, NY

Cooperstown practically sprang up around the historic Landmark Inn, a beautifully renovated 1856 house just steps from the village center. The town may be known as the home of the Baseball Hall of Fame, but the Landmark Inn is a destination in itself. “The staff is delightful, our room was perfect, the cookies were yummy, and the breakfasts were delicious,” writes one guest who found herself besotted all around. “It’s like staying at a five-star hotel but more personal,” agrees another, noting the amiable staff and location-appropriate elements, “right down to the Cracker Jack™ and peanuts in the entryway.”

 

 


 

Casa del Gavilan Historic Inn

Casa del Gavilan Historic Inn

Cimarron, NM

This B&B lives up to its name, boasting a spot on the National Register of Historic Places for its pristine Pueblo Revival style. “The wildlife and scenery made me feel like I was living the dream of a character in a Southwest storybook,” claims one guest. We feel the same about this turn-of-the-century adobe inn, which sits in a “spectacular location” at the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. “The views and the sunset [are] spectacular,” declare guests who find themselves greeted by antelope herds and hummingbirds during walks into the New Mexico countryside.

 

 


 

Graystone B&B Main Floor Suites

Graystone B&B Main Floor Suites

Niagara On The Lake, ON

This Niagara-on-the-Lake inn has been racking up awards for years. Nestled up close to the area’s top vineyards, Graystone pairs its reputation as a tranquil, homey hideaway for wine lovers with sumptuous breakfasts that look “like works of art.” Innkeeper Nicki is a “gracious and knowledgeable hostess” whose expert recommendations and surprise treats — “including certificates for local businesses” and tons of insider info — leave guests singing her praises: “Nicky was one of the warmest hosts we've ever had.” No wonder they keep coming back for more at this gorgeous summery spot.

 

 


 

Revere Guest House

Revere Guest House

Provincetown, MA

“Charming,” “quaint,” and “cozy” are words past guests use when describing Provincetown’s Revere Guest House, a 19th-century ship captain’s home brimming with subtly nautical details. Amenities include “a great breakfast cottage, a back patio with firepit, and extras like Netflix, nice bath products, and plush towels.” Everything is hand picked by hosts Paul and Allison to provide a home-like stay “with a magical sixth sense for hospitality at all the right moments.” Splurge on the “extraordinary” Captain’s Room, say reviewers — its gas fireplace is just the ticket on chilly Cape Cod nights.

 

 


 

Antigua Capilla Bed and Breakfast

Antigua Capilla Bed and Breakfast

San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato

Soaring courtyard arches. Intricate artworks created by locals. Textiles in a riot of colors. At Antigua Capilla, “the design, furnishings, and attention to detail are evident when you first walk in.” From top to bottom, this well-appointed and brightly painted B&B has high-end modern touches to complement the traditional art and warm service. “[Owners] Antonieta and Francisco are truly wonderful people who will make you feel at home.” In fact, “their customer service is on a different stratosphere.” Otherworldly it may be, but Antigua Capilla feels right at home here in sun-drenched San Miguel de Allende.

 

 


 

The Welsh Hills Inn

Welsh Hills Inn

Granville, OH

A country home deep in the hills of Ohio and surrounded by alpaca farms and horse country, the Welsh Hills Inn is the very definition of a relaxing getaway. Every last morsel and perk are designed to pamper, “from the wonderful amenities provided in our room, to the wine and cheese hour in the evening.” Guests claim they can feel tension melt away and find “relaxation at every turn, including the inviting hammocks and the gentle sound of the water rippling [in] the fountain and pool area.” Feeling particularly active? Hit the hiking trails and fishing pond between naps.

 

 


 

Old Town Guesthouse B&B

Old Town Guesthouse B&B

Colorado Springs, CO

Sure, many B&Bs boast a whirlpool or two, but the Old Town Guesthouse pulls out all the stops: “Sitting in our personal balcony hot tub while the snow was falling was magical!” says one guest. Take a soak with sweeping views of Pikes Peak and the Garden of the Gods. Doze in front of your private fireplace or relax in your in-room sauna — sore post-hiking muscles don’t stand a chance here. Reviewers love the uniquely furnished accommodations and personal touches: “Neat to have the 'themed' rooms with items from around the world in them!” And of course every room, whether inspired by a Moroccan hammam or a Colorado fishing lodge, shares those stunning views.

 

 


 

Chestnut Street Inn

Chestnut Street Inn

Sheffield, IL

This Illinois inn is for foodies, full stop. With locally sourced dishes abundant in Mediterranean and North African flavors and a butler’s pantry overflowing with goodies, mealtime is the main event at Chestnut Street. Guests applaud Monika, “a real-life certified chef [who] creates thoughtful meals that are nutritious, creative, and delicious.” OK, not too nutritious, as fans of the signature Elvis-inspired peanut butter and candied bacon French toast attest. Between meals and excursions, guests love to explore the grounds: “The house and rooms are nothing less than perfection and drip with history, antiques, and books.”

 

 


 

A Touch of English Bed & Breakfast

A Touch of English Bed & Breakfast

Kelowna, BC

This British-country-house-inspired inn may have its upscale touches — formal gardens, a conservatory, that swimming pool — but still “it feels like home.” Travelers dig the lovely gardens, where all are encouraged to enjoy “incredible afternoon tea with silver service and homemade fruit scones” and a side of BC sunshine, of course. This is the place to find inner peace, with “comfortable, inviting rooms to chill out in” complete with spectacular views of Kelowna. Add a convenient location close to the Okanagan wine region, and everything here is practically perfect.

 

 


 

Cedar Crest Lodge

Cedar Crest Lodge

Pleasanton, KS

There’s just so much to do at this sprawling resort: gardens, walking trails, fish ponds, a bocce court, a horseshoe pit, even a full-service spa. It’s a splendid spot for taking in the Kansas countryside’s most spectacular scenery. “Being atop the hill, sunsets, and the starlit sky were gorgeous,” says one guest. “The location is lovely with the view and all the flowers and butterflies,” says another. Everything is undeniably romantic, an “ideal getaway location for couples” who want to unplug and reconnect in nature, with “great little details such as a little S’mores kit” to sweeten the deal.

 

 


 

Cliffside Inn

Cliffside Inn

Newport, RI

An “incredible, relaxing, romantic stay at the Cliffside Inn that takes you back in time” to the Gilded Age, promises one reviewer of this Newport beauty. Perched high above the coastline, Cliffside is a meticulously restored Victorian manse whose owners have left no detail overlooked, down to the last Italian linen and homemade muffin. Just as commendable as the first-class service? “The location is great for the Cliff Walk,” mere steps from one of its main access points and a mile from the famously opulent Breakers. Plus it’s near the high-end shops and restaurants that dot downtown, “but not so close that you lose the tranquility.”

 

 


 

Inn at Cook Street

Inn at Cook Street

Provincetown, MA

Innkeepers Patrick and John fell in love with the funky, artsy vibe of Provincetown, a spot that celebrates its diverse spirit and colonial origins in equal measure. The B&B is convenient to the art galleries and hip restaurants of P-Town yet is perfectly peaceful in its residential setting. “You can walk to the best restaurants and the wildest parties and then walk back to the B&B for a great night's sleep,” with a quick stop in the “spectacular koi pond and gardens.” And no matter your evening plans, “[chef] Andrew prepares a mean breakfast spread” for the morning after.

 

 


 

Burlington's Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast Inn

Burlington's Willis Graves Bed & Breakfast Inn

Burlington, KY

A small town in Northern Kentucky is home to this “ah-mazing” adults-only inn that boasts all the comforts of home and then some. The Willis Graves is the kind of place where guests indulge in early-morning coffee on private porches or “an evening glass of wine watching the trees light up with fireflies.” It’s an ideal property for escapists to “lounge around in robes and eat fantastic breakfasts,” gushes one guest. And oh, those breakfasts. Served on white linens and blue china, dishes like creme brulee French toast and gingerbread pancakes jump-start each relaxing day.

 

 


 

Abbeymoore Manor Bed and Breakfast Inn

Abbeymoore Manor Bed and Breakfast Inn

Victoria, BC

“I cannot understand why anyone visiting Victoria would stay anywhere else,” raves one fan of this grand Canadian inn. Located in a 1912 Victorian packed with period furnishings, it’s all about the interiors at Abbeymoore. Find richly outfitted public spaces, cozy reading corners, and beautiful rooms “decorated in a way that made us feel like royalty.” Think fireplaces, chandeliers, and lush Oriental carpets aplenty. Pro tip from a past guest: Meet your fellow travelers over “a glass of port to end the day in the grand living room” at this heritage hotel.

 

 


 

Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast

Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast

Salisbury Mills, NY

New York natives and out-of-towners alike rave about the Caldwell House, “a gem in the Hudson Valley ... centrally located for hiking, winery visits, and enjoying the beauty of the region.” Its proximity to West Point and the Storm King Art Center are highlights, but so is the inn itself. One guest calls Caldwell House “the perfect blend of 1800s charm and modern upgrades,” with high-tech touches like a “fancy schmancy gigantor flat-screen TV.” But why watch the boob tube when the valley views are so special? “We sat on the outside porch at sunset with a bottle of wine and just took it all in.”

 

 


 

Pheasant Field B&B

Pheasant Field B&B

Carlisle, PA

Pheasant Field’s pastoral setting keeps guests returning to this gracious country home. ”I especially loved listening to the sounds of the country while outside — so soothing,” sighs one reviewer. Outside the 200-year-old Federal-style farmhouse, rolling paddocks and a shimmering pond help travelers reconnect with nature. Inside the red-brick walls, “a stately but relaxed environment” is maintained by the “amazingly hospitable” owners. And then there’s Rehab, the official greeter and resident rescue dog, a lovable lab mix “who made us feel right at home.” Bring your own furry friend along. “Horses and pets are welcome as it is also a stable and riding school.”

 

 


 

Hilltop Manor Bed and Breakfast

Hilltop Manor Bed and Breakfast

Hot Springs, AR

There are five reasons this Hot Springs inn is home to countless weddings, proposals, honeymoons, and anniversaries: the five “perfectly romantic” suites. Expect two-person Jacuzzi tubs, stone fireplaces, and decadent high-thread-count sheets in each oversized room. “We spent the evening watching movies in the most comfortable bed either of us had relaxed in, sipping our wine and enjoying each other's company,” recalls one couple. After what guests swear is the best sleep you’ll ever have, tuck into a breakfast “worthy of the Food Network” in the comfort of your room, or from a porch with waterfall views.

 

 


 

The Inn at Onancock

The Inn at Onancock

Onancock, VA

“I can summarize my experience with three letters and a punctuation mark,” offers one guest of this Virginia Eastern Shore inn: “OMG!” Here, owners Matt and Kim create a convivial vibe that encourages rubbing elbows with fellow guests. Gather at Wine Down Hour to enjoy generous pours of local wines, “enticing hors d'oeuvres,” and “a great hour of interesting conversation.” Reviewers say truly the best part of the Inn at Onancock is the people: “Two great owners and a fabulous evening with what felt like an impromptu dinner party with friends.”

 

 


 

Villa D’Citta

Villa D’Citta

Chicago, IL

Inside an Italianate villa in the heart of Chicago sits this stunning B&B best known for its brilliant service and award-winning architecture. “The most comfortable beds [we’ve] ever slept in,” reports one guest of the plush accommodations, complete with touches like oversized king canopy beds and a 25-head steam shower. “Like visiting a spa!” exclaims another. You’d hardly believe the bustling city is right outside your door, but this inn is truly “a calm and comfortable oasis” in trendy Lincoln Park. Expect the feel of a boutique hotel but the gracious staff of a Diamond Collection B&B.

 

 


 

The Kenwood Inn

The Kenwood Inn

Saint Augustine, FL

St. Augustine is a graceful town of horse-drawn carriages, Spanish architecture, and an endless list of top B&Bs. Among them, the Kenwood Inn stands out. “The structure of the home and the antiques are beautiful,” filled with Old Florida elegance and period details like antique writing tables and Carrera marble baths. And its central location among St. Augustine’s 16th-century streets simply outranks the competition. “Loved the nearness to the trolley stops” and the historic district’s best sights, say guests who agree this blissful B&B is “right in the thick of it, but so quiet.”

 

 


 

Abbington Green Bed & Breakfast Inn

Abbington Green Bed & Breakfast

Asheville, NC

Just take a glance at its gardens and you’ll see why Asheville’s “glorious,” “sensational,” and “unparallelled” Abbington Green deserves all those superlatives. There’s plenty of pedigree inside and out at this Diamond Collection inn designed by the Biltmore Estate’s architect. Spacious rooms are inspired by classical gardens and historic squares but “have all the latest gadgets you need, like charging stations,” pillow menus, and high-def TVs. The lavish English gardens and the owner’s greenhouse provide produce and herbs for “lovingly prepared” breakfasts, while expansive porches offer outdoor space for reading, relaxing, and enjoying “the dulcet tones of a wind chime.”

 

 


 

The Inn at Langley

The Inn at Langley

Langley, WA

“From the moment we arrived until our departure, I felt like I was wrapped in a warm blanket,” recalls one guest of their stay. Every room features water views, while “the deep soaking tub and the sound of the waves lapping at the shore” bring the surroundings of Whidbey Island right to your room. Reserve one of the airy suites complete with full kitchen and private deck with uninterrupted views of what one guest dubs “the Langley Riviera.” And if you can step away from the gorgeous sights, the surrounding San Juan Islands offer some of the world’s best whale-watching.

 

 


 

The Inn on First Bed and Breakfast

The Inn on First Bed and Breakfast

Napa, CA

Napa is near-synonymous with luxe foodie-friendly inns, but the Inn on First takes the classic wine country getaway one giant leap further. Owners Jim and Jamie’s expertise in wine is unmatched: “They went over and above to schedule appointments for wine tastings based on determining our taste and budget for wines,” says one guest. “They know every winery, restaurant, and attraction in the Napa area,” confirms another. That personalized attention to every last detail doesn’t end there, of course, with complimentary picnic baskets, champagne, and chocolate truffles on offer and beds “like a giant cloud of loveliness”— but not a television to be found on-site.

 

 


 

China Clipper Inn

China Clipper Inn

Ouray, CO

The contemporary China Clipper Inn was purpose-built as a B&B, a thoughtfulness evident in every square inch of this “hidden gem.” Guests love the cozy common areas, including the parlor-side fireplace and “the most beautiful enclosed porch” for reading and chatting with other travelers. They also rave about the gourmet breakfasts, hot cocoa station, and round-the-clock fresh-baked muffins. “I'm quite sure my muffins will not ever come close to the ones waiting for us every day of our stay,” admits one fan. Who knew baked goods could be so transcendent?
