The Vanderbilt House - Philmont, NY
Refurbishments are usually required if a property has been in operation for more than 150 years. Fortunately for Vanderbilt House, Bob Mansfield (the third member of the house's family) and Marcie Groll have done an excellent work. The eight rooms on the upper floor have been newly furnished and fitted with the latest technologies - high-definition TV, iPod and Wi-Fi - while preserving the old style of the hotels.
Downstairs, the door jambs and ceilings are preserved, but everything else is brand new; the country-style lounge is combined with the stylish dinning room overlooking Columbia County's gorgeous Summit Lake.
