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

        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.

            Somehow, on CH, there rarely is. People ask the questions but seldom give their reports after the fact. Too bad.
