This 100-room 1892 mansion is part inn, part gallery performance space and part private club. In this latter incarnation, it has hosted Hollywood celebrities and Chelsea Clinton’s sweet-16 party. Its owner, grande dame HH Leonards, has done the place up like a wedding at Castle Dracula: swags of velvet drapery, ornate chandeliers and lampshades, candelabras and concealed doorways. And it’s all for sale! The mansion serves food and drinks, but we recommend sticking to the bizarro self-guided tour. Register online for a time slot at least 24 hours in advance.
