January 15, 2010By: Mary Winston Nicklin
MonticelloSmack dab in the middle of Virginia hunt country, Keswick Hall is just minutes away from Jefferson's Monticello and the University of Virginia, nestled between spectacular vineyards and landscapes. This 600-acre estate, managed by Orient-Express, has an Arnold Palmer 18-hole golf course and a spa. Since the resort is surrounded by vineyards, guests are invited each fall to crush local grapes to make the hotel's Chardonnay and Petit Verdot wines. Appropriate considering Jefferson's role in bringing viticulture to this country. In fact, Keswick Hall invites guest to learn the history behind what Thomas Jefferson called "the Eden of America" with a special "Celebrating Jefferson" package including daily Continental breakfast, a three course dinner at Fossett's, a Welcome Monticello guide, and Presidential passes and a tasting tour of Jefferson Vineyards. Priced from $335 per room, per night. Two-night minimum stay required.
