The nip of fall is already in the air, which means leaf peeping season will soon arrive in the northeast. Surrounded by maple trees and with miles of hiking trails nearby, the Roger Sherman Inn is the perfect spot to enjoy the spectacular fall foliage.

This New England inn is one of Connecticut’s most beloved historic landmarks offering 16 individually decorated guestrooms and a two-bedroom suite, all with private bath, cable TV and complimentary wireless internet access.  Guests are served a delicious complimentary breakfast each morning, and the inn’s restaurant offers a French-American inspired menu and gracious service that was rated “Excellent” by the New York Times. There is also a classic bar that is reminiscent of an old English library with rich, dark paneling, hunting prints and high-back chairs.

For special events, there are private rooms and banquet space that can accommodate up to 170 people, making the Roger Sherman Inn the perfect place for weddings, birthdays and other celebrations.

The historic town of New Canaan offers antique shops and interesting boutiques as well as a 40-acre Nature Center, a Historical Society and a variety of sporting options including tennis and golf.
