Bedford Inn: Richard GereGere's Inn
The place: The Bedford Post Inn; Bedford, NY
Celebrity owner: Richard Gere
Be warned: Richard Gere’s Bedford Post Inn is nothing like the opulent Beverly Wilshire of Pretty Woman fame. However, there is a way of living out your Julia Roberts-Richard Gere love affair dream. Their second co-starring vehicle, Runaway Bride, has a similar backdrop to his eight-bedroom inn in upstate New York. In keeping with the small town theme, there are even country-named kitchens on the Westchester premises like The Farmhouse and The Barn. Bonus: There’s also a good chance you will see Buddhist boy Gere doing his best downward dog and sending sun salutations on the dark, hardwood floor of the inn’s yoga studio.
