The Upstate NY Inn Owned by Richard Gere

The property: The Bedford Post Inn

Set in the heart of Westchester, NY, the Bedford Post Inn is an eight-room luxury guesthouse, and exactly what you picture when you think “quiet, romantic getaway.” It’s all that, just drenched in Hollywood pedigree with its famous owners.

WhoRichard Gere, his former wife Carey Lowell, and Russell Hernandez – all Westchester residents – teamed up back in 2007 to rescue and renovate the historic Bedford Post Inn. Carey Lowell joined with Tiffany Vassilakis to design the interior. So don’t be surprised if you run in to everyone’s favorite rom-com lead doing the downward dog at the yoga studio.

Why: The property dates back to the 1860s, and is nothing like the Beverly Wilshire of Pretty Woman fame – it is, however, Relais-&-Chateux-designated, so you can rest assured that it’s as private, comfortable, and hospitable as they come. The Runaway Bride picture has a backdrop that’s closer to the eight-room inn in upstate New York with its quintessential small-town feel.

Only an hour away from Manhattan, guests are able to choose from five different room layouts (think working fireplace, Frette linens, and terraces that overlook the wooden property). The Bedford Post is also home to its own yoga studio and two distinct fine dining restaurants: The Barn and The Farmhouse.
