A 19th-century antiques-draped B&B with hidden gardens tucked in the back, this warm retreat will test your knowledge of perennials and provide inspiration for your own backyard. The mixed neighborhood of historic residences and convenience stores is a short walk from town—and the inn’s creative breakfast, from banana-nut waffles to gluten-free options (request in advance), will stoke you up for the easy stroll. Rates: from $180. Best Garden Lover’s B&B
