Amateur artists may be inspired to paint after a trip to the Inn at Bowman's Hill (215-862-8090). The B&B in New Hope, Pennsylvania, is adjacent to a 134-acre wildflower preserve, reached via Washington Crossing Historic Park. In spring, you can follow nearly two dozen trails to see woodlands carpeted in thousands of Monet-hued bluebells. You'll likely spot elusive red and white trillium along the paths as well as splashes of fiery flame azalea. Guided tours are available.

Location isn't the inn's only draw. Pop out of the cozy featherbeds, and, if you'd like, gather your own breakfast eggs from the inn's chickens. The Bucks County inn is alongside the Delaware River, near the spot where George Washington crossed in 1776, and the area is rich with history, antiques shops, fine restaurants, art galleries, and more.

Weekend rates are $445 to $475 a night including a full breakfast; suites are $575 to $595. For information on the preserve, see
