America's Best Country Inns and Hotels

Has your BlackBerry become your personal dictator? Feel like you're running so far behind that you can actually see yourself up ahead? The demands of modern life aren't likely to let up, but that doesn't mean you can't give yourself the gift of a luxuriously quiet weekend. The goal is to get far enough off the track that the main road is actually a back road; cell reception is spotty to nonexistent (or at least you can plausibly tell your boss that); and your room's prime amenity is a working fireplace. Let us introduce you to some of our favorite country retreats. Each has its own feel and character, and each gets high marks for being exactly what it intends to be, from a Victorian by the sea to a haven in the mountains. Whatever your druthers, we guarantee work will not find you here. Enjoy the sound of silence.
