Out of Town: Last-Minute Getaways
Every Person in New York

Hotel Fauchère in Milford, Pennsylvania has attracted visitors (including many notables) since it opened in 1880. Easy to see why: it's located in a particularly beautiful part of the Delaware Water Gap. The Relais & Chateaux hotel follows suit. Rooms from $285.

Starbuck Inn is a bed and breakfast run by the Starbuck family—a Colonial home in Kent, Connecticut, part of Litchfield County. If you've never been to the northwestern part of the state, you have quite a treat waiting for you. Rooms from $207.

Trading New York for Philly make not seem like a reason to dance for joy. Fair enough. Still, have you checked out the Barnes' new digs? Worth a detour. Dinner? Try Zahav. And bed down at The Independent, a small, well-situated boutique hotel with rooms starting at $189. [Image: In Vaudeville: Acrobatic Male Dancer with Top Hat by Charles Demuth]

Another museum/lodging combo: The Porches Inn at Mass MoCA in North Adams, Mass., rooms from $196. Currently at the museum, Oh Canada, a major survey of contemporary Canadian artists and Sanford Biggers: The Cartographer's Conundrum (pictured).

Head north to Hudson, New York where the antiquing is good and a visit to Frederic Church's home, Olana, is repaid by the eccentric house, grounds, and beautiful views. The Croff House has five guest rooms (from $160) and a relaxed vibe. They're mostly booked for the next two weeks though you could snag a single night here and there. And keep it in mind as the leaves turn.
