General Howard Carroll built the medieval-style structure, originally called Carrollcliffe, for his family of five. Completed in 1910, the manor was modeled after Castle Lismore in Ireland and opened as a luxury hotel in 1997. A nontraditional check-in process begins with a glass of raspberry-and-clove-infused champagne in the Tapestry Room; by the time you ascend the carved main staircase and peek at your swank digs, you’ll forget checkout even exists.

Visitors can choose from 24 guest rooms in a new extension or one of seven junior suites in the original building, all outfitted with four-poster beds and huge windows with gorgeous river views. The surrounding ten-acre property includes bocce and tennis courts, a heated pool and adjacent bar.

Make a reservation at Equus, the castle’s five-star restaurant, where executive chef Chiharu Takei gives a modern Japanese twist to French fare. Choose from a seasonal five- or seven-course dinner menu ($85–$120 per person, with wine pairings $145–$210) in the wildly elegant setting—you may want to take your cue from the Crawleys and dress for dinner.
