10 Luxury Hotels To Visit If You Love Fall Foliage

Fall foliage season is my favorite time of year. If you’re in the right places, for a brief window of time, your entire world turns orange, yellow and red. Mother nature is pretty talented. I grew up in Wisconsin and had the luxury of living right next to a forest that turned vibrant colors each fall. Now, I live in San Francisco and we don’t get fall foliage here. So, each October, I go foliage hunting across the country! Days are spent exploring the outdoors, and the nights are for relaxing in beautiful luxury and boutique hotels. No matter where you are in the country, use my list of 10 Luxury Hotels To Visit If You Love Fall Foliage below to find a colorful escape near you!

Pack your sweaters and get ready for lots of hot apple cider and hikes through vibrant colors. Plan your trip to time with the peak foliage season for the best leaf peeping experience possible!

The Inn at Vaucluse Spring

Location:Shenandoah Valley, VA

Highlights: A romantic inn with 6 different guest houses and cabins as well as a historic manor. There’s no TV here, but that’s intentional, as the stunning beauty of the 44 acres provides the perfect backdrop to disconnect from the digital world.

Foliage Season: Mid-October through early November.


The Charmant Hotel

Location: La Crosse, Wisconsin

Highlights: Wisconsin isn’t all cows and cornfields! The La Crosse area is especially stunning in the fall time with rolling hills of endless red, orange and yellow leaves. (Take it from a gal who grew up in Wisconsin – the foliage is off the hook here!) The Charmant Hotel is located downtown, so you’re footsteps away from anything you need after a day among the trees. But, you may have a hard time leaving the Charmant’s rooftop terrace!

Foliage Season: Early-mid October.
