Fall has arrived. We know you may be in mourning. Because what was once considered stifling heat, too many crowds, and beautiful days stuck in the office, is now fondly recalled as endless sunshine, pristine beaches, and summer Fridays. But cheer up – with some spiked apple cider: Fall is just as wonderful a season as summer; after all, with it comes football, nights spent snuggled fireside, and changing leaves. And we’d argue that nowhere does the latter two (and perhaps all three if you’re a Patriots fan) as beautifully as New England.
It seems any turn you take in the northeast region reveals even more spectacular signs of fall, and we’ve found some wonderful hotels and resorts where the vistas -- of both mountains and ocean -- are hard to beat. So here we bring you 12 of New England’s most scenic hotels and resorts for an autumnal escape.View Slideshow
