Connecticut's Delamar Hotel Southport: Boutique New England Meets New York Chic

Jun 23, 2015  |   Contributor: Steve Mirsky

Only 80 minutes from Midtown NYC, and a quick walk from Southport Connecticut's train station, Delamar Southport's classic white clapboard colonial architecture situated on the Old Post Road looks like it's been a fixture here since the town's 19th century maritime heyday. Until walking inside, it's hard to conceive that construction on the property was actually completed in 2010.

Mar 31, 2015  |   Contributor: Sean Hillen

Standing high above hazy hills with its dazzling ochre façade, vivid blue shutters and rows of vintage chestnut trees, Domaine de la Baume is a classic portrayal of a Provençal postcard. In many ways, reality outshines images of this 99-acre, 18th century bourgeoisie demesne. Sitting a few miles from the village of Tourtour, it offers a roaring waterfall, Italianate gardens featuring ornate statues, pebble-strewn pathways and an outdoor swimming pool framed by ornamental lions, urns and vases.

Sitting off the north coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, the 26-mile-long Holbox Island is one such destination.

Access to a Mercedes-Benz is Just One of the Perks at Solage Calistoga in Napa County

Feb 3, 2015  |   Contributor: Katherine Bond

Calistoga is an enchanting little spot. Hot springs bubble with mud, oaks grow amid petrified wood forests, and fast food chains are banned by law in this quaint corner of Napa County.

New 36-Room Boutique Property Offers a Modern Take on the Glitz of the Jazz Age

Jan 30, 2015  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

From Butchering Classes to Alfalfa Treatments, Sonoma's Fanciest Farm Has a Genuine Farm-to-Table Ethos

Jan 23, 2015  |   Contributor: Katherine Bond

Farms aren’t typically too fancy. Or at least, they usually don't house a Michelin-starred chef, half a dozen concierges, three-course breakfasts, and private spa cabanas overlooking meticulous gardens. The Farmhouse Inn is, however, one such fancy and indulgent farm (if you can even call it that).
