Taking a trip to experience the dazzling colors of changing leaves is a must in the fall. Though we love luxe hotels, a quaint country inn offers the perfect accommodations for such a weekend. Here are just a few of our favorite bed and breakfasts that are located in regions known for their beautiful fall foliage:
No matter the time of year, the Berkshire Mountains are worth a trip for their natural beauty. Of course, the autumn is especially beautiful. This luxury B&B is set on a peaceful farm with its own duck pond and 10 acres of unspoiled woods. Though any of the suites would be perfect for a getaway, we’re partial to the charming School House Suite (above).
Located near the very scenic Blue Ridge Parkway, this New England-style inn is the epitome of cozy. The inn has only six suites, which nearly guarantees a quiet atmosphere where you can really unwind. After a day of taking in the seasonal beauty, take a stroll into the artsy downtown of Asheville or simply relax on the porch.
Though it’s close to the popular weekend destinations of New Hope and Doylestown, The Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm feels a world away. Nestled on 100+ acres of preserved farmland and forest, the historic inn is surrounded by natural beauty. While every suite (and cottage) offers great views, some of the best are found in the sunny dining room, above.
Made INN has a quirky, trendier vibe than the typical B&B, which makes it a perpetually popular choice for weddings and weekend getaways alike. (Don’t be surprised if you stumble upon a wedding photo session in any of the common areas.) You can take in views of Lake Champlain from many of the rooms, or simply take a drive 5 minutes in any direction to find that incredible fall scenery Vermont is known for.
This refined inn isn’t too far from New York City, making it a great choice for a quick overnight stay for those in the region. Low-key luxury is the overall theme, whether it’s sleek décor that lets the inn’s architecture shine or the elevated yet simple fare at the inn’s two restaurants (The Barn and Baldanza). Start your day with yoga at the on-site studio, then hit the road for taking in the local color. Then, finish the night with a great glass of wine and a stroll around the inn’s magical grounds (see the photo at the top of this story to see what we mean).
