Weekend Away

Keswick Hall: An Idyllic Escape to Virginia's Countryside
November 27, 2014
By Merle & Christine Gray
A country road meanders past horse farms, vineyards, and white-columned mansions. We have escaped the traffic of Washington D.C. and are on our way to Keswick Hall, a private estate turned luxury hotel in the scenic foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Time Out for Tapas: A Weekend in Barcelona
October 9, 2014
By Jade Lynch
A weekend break in this European city that meets the Mediterranean sea will inevitably be indulgent thanks to all the wonderful food and wine on offer but also equally as packed with culture and activity to keep us busy.
Weekend Away: Downtown Miami
October 2, 2014

For so long Miami has only been known for South Beach, but now downtown is stepping into the light and becoming the popular place to stay and play in the city.
Sofitel New York Offers Parisian-Style Weekends in Manhattan
February 10, 2014

Francophiles looking for a generous serving of Paris with their New York experience will love the new Paris Weekend in New York package from Sofitel New York, the stylish Midtown Manhattan hotel with a decidedly French accent.
Meadowood Reigns as the Napa Wine Region's Pinnacle of Luxury Lodging
January 29, 2014
By Connie Dufner
Stroll the grounds of Napa Valley’s Meadowood on a sunny morning, and you’d be hard-pressed to remember what year it is. A pristine green croquet lawn whispers of men and women in crisp whites, and it doesn’t take too much imagination to envision the lords and ladies of Downton Abbey gamboling about.
Weekend Away at The Grand Del Mar
January 14, 2014
By David J. Latt
A visit to the Grand Del Mar begins at the turn off from Carmel Valley Road. Sheltered by a line of Eucalyptus trees, the private two-lane drive feels like a road from another time. A grassy meadow stretches on one side and to the other, a rolling hill slopes down to a manicured green, part of the 18 hole, par-72 golf course designed by Tom Fazio.
Ultimate Romance at Cap Juluca
September 3, 2013
By Merle & Christine Gray
Juliette's bright smile lights up our arrival at Cap Juluca, a resort that's been on our wish list for too many years. My husband and I haven't been here before, yet she greets us by name and escorts us through the domed archway decorated with exotic Moroccan lanterns. We emerge to the open-air lobby where we are instantly mesmerized by the powder sand crescent beach with brilliant turquoise water that we've always seen in photographs.
A Visit to Winslow Homer's Maine at Black Point Inn
May 18, 2013
By Merle & Christine Gray
Looking out at the peaceful bay in this quiet, picturesque setting, it's hard to imagine the dramatic, weatherbeaten scenes of Winslow Homer's paintings.
Weekend Away: Fearrington House Inn Offers Five-Star Service in Pastoral Setting

By Kathy M. Newbern & J.S. Fletcher
Decked out in our chef jackets bearing the embroidered words Fearrington House, our group of seven arrives in the kitchen at five-star Fearrington House Restaurant ready to cook seafood. (It's pronounced FAIR-ring-ton.)
Weekend Away: Dublin
July 27, 2012
By Jessica Colley
It was raining and I couldn't have been happier. Arriving at the Merrion Hotel, I had visions of crackling fireplaces and trays of scones with jam and lemon curd delivered to my door.
Weekend Away: Golfing at Half Moon Bay
June 4, 2012
By Merle Gray
For the devotee, the golf get-away is a hallowed tradition. But how it is approached can evolve -- which is how I found myself at The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay just in time for sunset over the Pacific.
The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay Offers Signature Scenic Drive
June 4, 2012

The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay has unveiled a new driving experience which takes advantage of the resort's stunning coastal location and its access to some of northern California’s most breathtaking scenery.
Weekend Away: Palm Beach
March 25, 2012
By Christine Gray
The glory of America's Gilded age can still be experienced at one of the world's quintessential resort destinations: The Breakers in Palm Beach. Early 20th century tycoons including Andrew Carnegie and J.P. Morgan came to revive and hobnob with Rockefellers, Vanderbilts and Astors. We decide to follow in their footsteps, if only for a weekend getaway!
Weekend Away: Glamour in the Country at Glenmere Mansion

By Jessica Colley
The pristine white tub was calling me: I couldn't resist an end of the day soak. Tossing aside a fluffy robe, I sank into steaming water, a whimsical rubber ducky already lost in a deep sea of suds. Instead of the flat-screen TV, I watched flames from the gas fireplace dance and reflect on marble.
Weekend Away: London's Lanesborough Hotel
August 18, 2011

The Lanesborough, a St. Regis Hotel, captures the grace of the Regency period. Ideally located in elegant Knightsbridge, the residence is minutes away from the exclusive shopping of Harrods and Sloane Street.
