This elegant inn, a stunning example of Gilded Age architecture, is largely unchanged since the days when it belonged to Francis Silas Rodgers. Converted to a hotel in 1998, many of the original details still remain, including original Louis Comfort Tiffany glass panels, crystal chandeliers, pressed tin ceilings, and marble mantles. The 21 nice size rooms, some with patios, have wood floors and moldings, king-size beds, whirlpools, and working gas fireplaces; several have daybeds or sofa beds. The Wentworth is high on frills; an in-room refrigerator is stocked with free drinks and peanuts, morning brings a full European breakfast on the sun porch, and complimentary libations are poured each afternoon in the Rodgers Library. The spa doles out food-flavored treatments (including a peach-mango massage) inside a converted horse stable. Don't miss a gourmet dinner at the inn's carriage-house restaurant, Circa 1886.
