A Classic Revisited

Let it snow

Clifton had always been one of our favorite inns, and then two years ago this venerable Charlottesville, Virginia, house was damaged by fire. But rebuild the owners did, beautifully re-creating 14 rooms. Any season is, of course, fine by us in Virginia horse country, but we particularly love the idea of being tucked away here on a winter weekend. From $255 to $495; 888-971-1800; www.cliftoninn.net.
