According to local news in Charlottesville, Virginia, the colors are headed down to the Bible Belt -- one place to take in the natural autumnal palette is Keswick Hall, just a short drive from Jefferson's Monticello (as well as his classically designed University of Virginia).
Complete with baby butlers, an "Arnold Palmer" signature 18-hole golf course, a smokin' wine cellar and some delicious bars, spa, tennis, and three swimming pools, you should be able to find something to do in between all that intense leaf-peeping.
The hotel is offering a healthy handful of packages, so you might get some goodies tacked onto the usual room rates that start around $365.

One of America's grand dame hotels is rolling out a special to commemorate its upcoming centennial. The Otesaga in Cooperstown, perched on the shores of Lake Otsego and a stone's throw from America's richest baseball museum, is surrounded by history and is history itself.
A century old on July 12, 2009, the hotel is part of literary history (the lake is referred to as "Glimmerglass" in writer James Fenimore Cooper's Leatherstocking Tales); was an architectural marvel when it opened, with phones in every room and central heating, designed by the same fellows that built The Dakota in New York City; and a celebrity haunt, with baseball players like Ty Cobb, Cy Young and Joltin' Joe DiMaggio holed up.
What about those buckeye trees? Yes, nobody ever thinks of Ohio when it comes to trees turning, but The Ohio Department of Natural Resources reports that mid-October is going to be a choice time to see the colors change before the leaves drop.
There's no place better to snuggle up than in a picturesque, hilly college town, with peaceful sidewalks perfect for strolling, and one of the best beer bars in the entire state...
That place is Granville, Ohio, a half hour's drive from Columbus and home to Denison University.
The Granville Inn has 30 guest rooms, with deliciously low rates that start at $99. The rooms are equipped with free internet access, cable, and crammed with antiques. Although, we do admit it does give off a "night at Grandma's" sort of vibe.
But there's alcohol! Wine Spectator has given wine list an Award of Excellence for four years straight, and the hotel is on the National Register of Historic Places. It's also purported to be haunted. So you could have some ghost-hunting to go with your leaf-peeping too.
