The most appealing resorts in New England and New York take all of the creature comforts of a classic bed-and-breakfast and turn up the dial. A welcoming glass of wine beside a roaring fire? Check. Rambling walking paths through picturesque forests or beside peaceful lakes? Check. Comfortable guest rooms and thick mattresses piled with warm coverings? Check.

Every year for our World’s Best Awards survey, T+L asks readers to weigh in on travel experiences around the globe — to share their opinions on the top hotels, resorts, cities, islands, cruise ships, spas, airlines, and more. Hotels were rated on their facilities, location, service, food, and overall value. Properties were classified as city or resort based on their locations and amenities.

This year, a number of properties are new to the list. The Vanderbilt, an Auberge Resort, occupies a Gilded Age mansion in the heart of downtown Newport, Rhode Island. Hidden Pond, located minutes from the Atlantic coast in Kennebunkport, Maine, offers tree-house-like spa and cabins on stilts. The Taconic Kimpton, just outside Manchester, Vermont, opened in 2017 and won raves from our readers, not least because, like all Kimptons, it’s pet-friendly. “We were able to bring our fur baby Charlie Brown, a long-haired German shepherd,” one voter wrote. “The resort had bowls of water when we walked into the lobby, a chalkboard with the guests’ dogs’ names, plus locally made biscuits. They provided a loaner bed and bowls, and we were allowed to bring them to the lobby for complimentary happy hour.”

Alongside the newcomers are some of the region’s long-beloved classics. Lake Placid Lodge was rebuilt in 2005 after a massive fire burned the original 1882 camp to the ground. But the hotel’s spirit is still intact. “My husband and I stayed here for our mini-moon for three nights,” one reader wrote. “We arrived exhausted after all of the wedding festivities and couldn't wait to relax and have a quietly romantic weekend. The Lake Placid Lodge delivered exactly that. Between the luxurious room with its wood-burning fireplace and a balcony with a gorgeous lake view, it was the perfect fall getaway.”

Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, New York, has existed in some form since the 1860s. The range of activities at the property has perhaps never been bigger. “Visit in the summer and see the incredible gardens and get in some golf,” said one reader. “Visit in the winter and get in some ice skating, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing. In all seasons, the trails are great for walking independently or on one of the multiple guided hikes. You can also get in on the tomahawk throwing — see if you can hit the target!”

Sometimes it’s the little things that bring visitors back year after year. For one reader, the Sagamore, a hotel on the shores of Lake George, New York, that dates back to 1883, it was the thoughtful service: “I'm not sure how they do it, but the staff who have been there for years remember how you like your coffee in the morning, what you like to order, and just when you need something.”

One place that does the little things exceedingly well: the charming Rabbit Hill Inn, which  repeats as No. 1. Read on to see why it earned top billing again — and which other properties ranked among the best resorts in the Northeastern United States.
