Sorry, Junior, but the tantalizing maze of maple, linden, and spruce trees behind the Jackson House Inn is strictly off-limits, as are the refreshing swimming pond, the heated bathroom floors, and the complimentary canapés and Champagne each evening. Located just west of picture-perfect Woodstock, the inn keeps the peace for vacationing couples—including many Dartmouth parents—by only allowing guests aged 16 and up, and no pets. Originally built as a private home in 1890, the Queen Anne–style inn has been smartly updated to include nine guest rooms and six suites with gleaming cherry, maple, and pine woodwork, French doors, and four-poster beds dressed in Frette and Anichini linens; among the other niceties are Bose sound systems and satellite TV. In the exposed-beam restaurant, Slow Food–inspired chef Jason Merrill uses seasonal ingredients for such dishes as mustard-crusted lamb chops and strawberry Linzertorte. (The airy dining room is also the site of lavish breakfasts.) Hoteliers Bernie and Jennifer English, who have run the inn since 2006, are as finicky about details as they are about kids, but they provide a warm welcome.

Appeared in the Condé Nast Traveler Gold List, a directory of the world's best hotels and resorts, in 2006
