Celebrity's Favorite Bed and Breakfasts Exposed

Jun 7, 2008
You may not run with the rich and famous, but you can spend a vacation at the same places they frequent. These bed and breakfasts have hosted Oscar winners and fan favorites, and the innkeepers are just as happy to share their hospitality with you.

Maine's restful Inn at Long Lake is a favorite haunt of actress Meryl Streep and her daughters. Located in Naples, Maine, this 1900s-era Victorian B&B inn features graceful veranda appointed with wicker chairs with beautiful views of Long Lake. Once inside, you'll find stained glass windows, period antiques, fresh flowers, and a wonderful collection of old clocks. The Inn at Long Lake has 16 rooms, each decorated with Victorian-themed floral wallpaper and antique furniture. Find out for yourself why Meryl Streep is a repeat visitor!

Just outside of downtown Baltimore, you'll find Grammercy Mansion, a historic Tudor-style gem with 11 lavish guest rooms and suites. Director and Oscar-winner Ron Howard is among the notable guests to have spent the night at this bed and breakfast. The individually decorated rooms range from the sunny Blue Garden room which evokes the feeling of 18th-century France with its antique Louis XIV furnishings and marble fireplace to the extravagant Tudor Room that reminds one of an opulent suite at an English castle. Whatever the choice, guests will feel as pampered as a celebrity with gourmet breakfasts and posh surroundings.

To live like Cybill Shepherd, you must stay at the Swann House B&B in Washington DC. Close to the Metro and the Capital's many attractions, this 1883 Richardson Romanesque brick manor even has its own turret! Worth trying: The Over-the-Top Girls' Getaway. Your 'girl group' can take over this Dupont Circle B&B's 12 rooms for three days, and enjoy an all-inclusive champagne breakfast, welcome reception, shopping, yoga, makeovers, massages and jazz clubs. Even if you don't, the Swann House's 12-foot ceilings, crown moldings, inlaid wood floors, crystal chandeliers, and elaborate fireplace mantels make it an astoundingly different place to stay in Washington, DC. No wonder Cybill slept here!

NFL Hall of Famer Larry Csonka was once a guest at the Bent Creek Lodge, a rustic Asheville, N.C., lodge built to please any mountain man or just about anyone else who enjoys fantastic views, great food and cozy rooms. Guests can relax in a rocking chair on the huge veranda and enjoy Blue Ridge Mountain and garden views or even book a massage for extra relaxation. Outdoor activities include hiking, biking, fishing and canoeing along the French Broad River. The Biltmore Estate and Blue Ridge Parkway are among the nearby attractions, and downtown Asheville is just 10 miles away.

'Lethal Weapons' are the last things you'll find at the Apple Country Bed & Breakfast, which may explain why Danny Glover stayed here. Located in Wenatchee, Washington, this 1918-vintage home is country charm personified. Besides Apple Country's homey 15 rooms, "Breakfast will be one of the highlights of your stay," says this B&B's website. "Jerry's 'soon-to-be-world-famous' sticky-buns are worth getting up for." Sounds like an oasis of calm to us. No wonder Mel Gibson is nowhere to be found!

Meg Ryan and William Shatner are among the famous celebrities that have graced the rooms at the Aaron Burr House Inn & Conference Center in New Hope, Pennsylvania. The 1873 inn rests atop the site of a Revolutionary War-era home where Aaron Burr actually hid out after his notorious duel with Alexander Hamilton. Victorian charm abounds in the guest rooms, some of which include antique canopy beds. The guest room walls have been stenciled and hand painted by a local artist.
