America's wonderful little hotels and inns Author:barbara crossette If your are one of those people who hates the brassy look-alike hotels and motels, if you would rather stay at places with particular charm, whose proprietors attend to each guest, this book is for you. With it, you can travel around America (and Canada), stopping at the prettiest, most unusual, and best-run hostelries. You can sleep at the Ma... more »ine inn where Edna St. Vincent Millay was "discovered" (the Whitehall); sip brandy with breakfast in a real old West hotel (the Union in California); or wander among antiques in a former gristmill built by Abraham Lincoln's grandfather (the Doe Run Inn in Kentucky).
The recommendations are not those of just one person, but of hundreds of experienced travelers - authors, muscians, lawyers - recounted in their own words.
This guide includes wonderful places in cities (many of them small) as well as country hideaways. It gives public-transportation directions to the many inns that can be reached by the carless. And, unlike some inns guides, it never charges inns a fee for being listed and never accepts "freebies."
Reading about the lovely, gracious places in this book will make you dream of the perfect vacation - where there are fireplaces in the bedrooms, big bathtubs with feet, heirloom furniture, and pies baked by the innkeeper, with love.« less
