The Turret Suite at Belhurst Castle in Geneva, New York

While castles may be a European specialty, it's not essential for tourists to leave the U.S. 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 details that range from fireplaces to stained glass windows. Our favorite detail, though, is the complimentary wine spigot on the second floor, where guests can sample Belhurst wines 24/7. Additional luxuries on this lavish estate include the 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.
