ort d’Hiver
Melbourne Beach, Fla.

Port d’Hiver “brings history,­ nature, privacy, and comfort
together in one luxurious­ retreat,” said Mary Thur­wachter in The Miami Herald. The stately home, built in 1916, once belonged to Florida sophisticate Walter Brown. Recently, it’s been transformed into an elegant 11-room inn. Most rooms ­feature “a giant whirlpool tub,” a porch overlooking the pool, and king-size beds ­“with high-thread-count sheets meticulously ironed and stretched across a feather-top mattress.” But what separates the seaside inn is hospitality: “breakfasts fit for royalty” and a “concierge service to rival anything a ­five-star resort has to offer.”
