George Washington might have missed his calling. From Ferry Farm to Mount Vernon, the guy had an impeccable eye for property with rolling hills, lush gardens, rushing waters and wooded walks.

If your penchant for breathtaking real estate is anything like our nation's forefather's, prepare the carriage and make haste to the Hillbrook Inn: you're taking an overnight ($197) getaway to this English Tudor country house that just so happens to reside on land that once belonged to the first president himself.

Celebrate your stay in the elegant Main House upon arrival with champagne and strawberries as you relax under the eaves of your antique-filled room. Oriental carpets, clawfoot tubs, and rich hues evoke elegance and comfort. (Just like Martha would like it.) Innkeepers are friendlier than the tavern keepers of yore, providing freshly baked cookies and complimentary drinks, too.

Explore West Virginia the way George would remember it with a trip through time in red-brick-roaded Charles Town. Stroll through picturesque Harpers Ferry, which later became a prominent site in the run-up to and course of the Civil War. Or wander a little further afield to Georgie's namesake: Washington, DC, is only an hour away from the Inn, meaning there's always some fine dining and political power lunching within reach.

You won't regret your choice of the Hillbrook Inn; trust us. After all, we cannot tell a lie.
