A boutique stay at an upscale country retreat tucked away in the woods of scenic Western New York

Have an upscale Upstate retreat at River Spring Lodge. This relaxed boutique hotel in Western New York boasts a spot on the 2018 Iloveinns.com Top Ten Romantic Inns list (it’s the only New York inn that made the cut) and membership in Bedandbreakfast.com’s Diamond Collection. Expect gracious hospitality under innkeepers Carolyn and Dave Hamer at this 20-acre property among 80 acres of woodlands, where accommodations come with down duvets, 40-in. flat-screen TVs and heated bathroom floors and a delicious three-course daily breakfast is complimentary.

Other unique offerings include a location right between the Lake Erie and Lake Ontario tributaries, which translates to excellent trout and steelhead fishing in the spring and fall, and a pheasant-hunting program through the Sportsmen’s Wing. You’ll also receive plenty of local recommendations, with vineyards, golf courses, wineries, Niagara Falls and Letchworth State Park in the region. But the real highlight of a River Spring Lodge getaway, many TripAdvisor reviewers agree, is Chef Dave’s restaurant, pairing dishes of premium seafood, poultry and produce with signature desserts and delicious breads made in-house.
