Hotel at a Glance: The Pines of Dresden
Converted from a farmhouse built in 1812, The Pines of Dresden still feels much like a home. Guest rooms are adorned in antiques and handmade quilts, and some have the original pine floors. The 2-acre lawn surrounding the inn serves as a gathering place with its gazebo and seating around a fire pit.

- Housemade desserts are served each evening for some sweet dreams ahead.
