Best Lake Views
THE SACHEM FARMHOUSE BED & BREAKFAST, Warren
This renovated 19th-century farmhouse on Lake Waramaug is big on historic ambience, right down to the four guestrooms named for ancestors who lived and worked here. You’ll want to embark on many excursions right outside the front door, such as a romantic picnic (they’ll supply the blanket). 15 Hopkins Rd. 860-868-0359; thesachemfarmhouse.com

Best Colonial Experience
CAPTAIN GRANT’S, 1754, Preston
Old plank floors, hand-hewn beams, and other historic touches extend to seven comfy guest rooms. Nods to the 21st century include TV and WiFi, while accounts of a resident ghost add history and mystery. 109-111 Route 2A. 800-982-1772, 860-887-7589; captaingrants.com

Best Boutique Stay
THE HOTEL CHESTERFIELD, Stamford
Indulge in luxe extras, including massages, or meals from area restaurants served in your room. Antiques fill the nine guestrooms and suites, no two of which are alike (ask for one facing Long Island Sound). 1404 Shippan Ave. 203-978-1227; thehotelchesterfield.com

Best Romantic Shoreline Inn
THE INN AT STONINGTON, Stonington
Harbor views and a well-earned reputation as a romantic getaway. Room 7 offers a whirlpool tub and private balcony; each of the other 17 rooms boasts private baths, gas fireplaces, and Frette linens. Beach towels and bicycles are a nice plus. 60 Water St. 860-535-2000; innatstonington.com

Best Country Hideaway
THE MANSION AT BALD HILL, South Woodstock
A railroad heiress once summered here. Lounge in the formal common rooms, or make straight for the verandah and English gardens. The elegant “Mrs. Bowen’s Suite” smacks of 19th-century opulence, with fireplace, clawfoot tub, and four-poster bed. 29 Plaine Hill Road. 860-974-3456; mansionatbaldhill.com

Best Historic Overnight
SILAS W. ROBBINS HOUSE, Wethersfield
This 1873 Second Empire mansion-turned-B&B is a standout. It offers all the period touches a history buff could hope for, from a mansard roof to an original double-leaf front door. The five guestrooms are elegant; some are outfitted with a chandelier and a fireplace, others with floor-to-ceiling windows. 185 Broad St. 860-571-8733; silaswrobbins.com
