Thomas Henkelmann’s classic French cuisine remains the chief draw at this renovated 19th-century Victorian mansion on the Belle Haven peninsula, 45 minutes northeast of Manhattan. The interior combines period charm with Asian artifacts, bronze sculptures and contemporary paintings. The 18 individually decorated rooms and suites are divided among the mansion, the cottage buildings and an adjacent carriage house. Most of the traditional European-style accommodations feature four-poster beds, bold palettes, rich fabrics, fine art, antique furniture and unexpected details; spacious baths have heated concrete-tile floors, Bulgari toiletries and soaking tubs. Lavish meals are served in a timbered dining room flanked by an airy sunporch and a flower-bedecked veranda furnished with white wicker chairs.
