      1. Indulgence, good food? I can suggest The Homestead Inn and dinner at their restaurant Thomas Henkelmann. But, it's expensive. Utterly divine and seamless and heavenly, but $$$. It's near the Sound in Greenwich, CT, alas -- not on a lake. But I immediately thought of it.

        What about the Mayflower Inn in Washington, CT?

          I don't get what anyone sees in TH!

        2. I've never been there, but what about the Inn at Lake Waramaug?

          1. It's not on a lake, but the Woolverton Inn in Stockton, NJ is fabulous. They do a wonderful breakfast in bed and a great cheese plate. I recommend Dilly's around the corner for a super-casual lunch, then a romantic dinner on the porch of the Frenchtown Inn. The area (New Hope, PA) is full of antique stores and shops.

              I concur that woolverton inn is a real indulgence :) Might be further than 2 hours from stamford though. My husband and I went there two years ago. It's lovely and there are some very nice restaurants in the area as well.
