Staying is a breeze, too. The region has lovely B&Bs, hotels and even a grand hotel on Mount Snow. What about a private club that lets you sample it all? Check out The Hermitage Club, the only private four-season resort in the Northeast. Private in this case does not mean off limits — it means three of the four sections of the club are open to the public, where you’ll find the same special touches of a private resort, including a quieter setting. Open to all are the club’s lodging, which includes six luxurious inns throughout Wilmington and Dover, such as The Hermitage Inn, an elegant four-star country inn with its own covered bridge and extensive wine cellar; two restaurants (The White House and The Hermitage Inn); and an 18-hole championship golf course that is open to the public during the week, and private on weekends and holidays.
