Castles may be a European specialty, but it's not essential for tourists to leave the United States in order to enjoy a turret or two with their wine country holiday. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Belhurst Castle sits on Seneca Lake in New York's Finger Lakes wine region. This stately stone building dates back to the 1880s and offers 14 guest rooms with original details that range from fireplaces to stained glass windows. Our favorite perk is the complimentary wine spigot on the second floor, where guests can sample Belhurst wines 24/7. Additional luxuries on this lavish estate include Isabella Spa, Edgar's restaurant for steak and seafood, Stonecutter's tavern with outdoor tables overlooking the lake and a historic Georgian Revival manor house with additional accommodations.
