Renowned actor and longtime Westchester County resident Richard Gere fell in love with this stunning region of the Northeast many years ago; in 2007 he and his partners transformed an 18th century property into the elegant Bedford Post Inn.
This eight-hour route devised by Gere has everything that makes summer blissful: pastoral countryside, each picture-postcard view lovelier than the next, cool, shady forests, and the seashore. “I grew up in the Northeast, and to me, there’s no more beautiful place anywhere,” says Gere. “Get in your car now and visit these wonderful Relais & Châteaux inns.”
