Ah...living in the lap of luxury. It's something we all strive for, but sadly, not all of us achieve. Yet there are ways to experience the dream, especially when guests stay at one of these lavish B&B's. With amenities ranging from dedicated local concierge services and en suite baths featuring Jacuzzi tubs, to award-winning restaurants and private boat tours, there is plenty of posh pampering for guests to indulge in.
1) The Inn at Bowman's Hill, New Hope, PA
The Inn at Bowman's Hill, a AAA Four-Diamond Recipient, offers luxurious details among a five-acre gated estate with four rooms and four suites. In addition to en-suite couples massages and private yoga sessions available, the Penthouse Suite boasts a dream bathroom that features a heated corner whirlpool for two and a starlight ceiling with 300 fiber optic stars and even a shooting star that appears every five minutes! There is also the stunning two-story Regal Tower Suite (aptly named in honor of one of its first guests - the late Princess Diana's brother, Earl Spencer). It has been recently renovated and now offers a private deck with direct access to the inn's stunning grounds.
2) Friends Lake Inn, Chestertown, NY
Located in the Adirondack Park in upstate NY, Friends Lake Inn has luxury guestrooms featuring king beds with high-end linens, TVs, wood-burning fireplaces, Jacuzzi tubs, steam showers, private porches, in-room Keurigs, and luxury robes.
