As summer fades into fall, check in to one of our favorite Northeastern hotels.
White Hart Inn, Salisbury, Connecticut
A three-hour drive from Manhattan, the White Hart’s generously sunlit rooms and cozy front porch make it a welcome getaway from the city. But the real standout here is the food: with British chef Annie Wayte at the helm, either of the inn’s two restaurants—the upscale Dining Room and its more casual sister, the Tap Room—are worth the trip on their own. From $375; 15 Under Mountain Rd.; 860-435-0030; whitehartinn.com.
