This circular, one-of-a-kind domed-atrium property in rural Indiana—"it's an architectural marvel in the middle of nowhere"—was once a Jesuit seminary. Accommodations come with embroidered silk bolsters, artwork created from vintage postcards, and Egyptian-cotton sheets; one-bedroom suites have iron beds and leather-topped tables. The clubhouse offers cuisine ranging from home-style sweet corn chowder to grilled breaded pork tenderloin, and views of the Pete Dye Golf Course; Ballard's Bar serves cocktails in the atrium.
