Playing host to history and celebrities, including everyone from Henry Kissinger and John Kenneth Galbraith to Mick Jagger and Sting, is nothing new at the Four Columns Inn. The boutique inn, which opened as a guest house in 1965, is known for its peaceful setting, attention to detail and sense of place. Today, its 16 spacious rooms feature an eclectic collection of antique and modern pieces and original art that celebrate the region. The tradition of farm-to-table dining excellence, which began decades ago, is still celebrated at Artisan restaurant. Nearby Newfane is the perfect New England village, with its columned courthouse on a handsome green.
