As people, we're eternally searching for the Fountain of Youth, doing whatever it takes to maintain taut figures and wrinkle-free skin. When it comes to historic New England towns, however, we say let it all hang out—the older the better.

Escape to Bradford—a granny of a hamlet in the Lake Sunapee region of New Hampshire—for a two-night stay for two in a Standard Room, Sundays through Thursdays ($249) or Fridays and Saturdays ($275), at The Candlelite Inn, a white Victorian B&B with simple sensibilities and modern amenities.

Once you're over the hill, through the woods, and finally nestled on three acres of countryside in the heart of the Lake Sunapee region, you'll be just in time for evening hors d'oeuvres. After you've checked in to your room, fit with a queen-size bed draped in handcrafted quilts, leave Father Time behind as you luxuriate in your antique clawfoot tub.

When it's time to venture out—after a three-course gourmet breakfast—the inn will provide a picnic lunch and send you packing for a one-hour-and-forty-five-minute boat ride with Lake Sunapee Cruises. From your chair on the deck of the boat, you'll listen to some fun history of the region and take in the sights that make Lake Sunapee the popular vacation destination that it is.

More adventure awaits just a stone's throw from the property, where three state parks (Mt. Kearsarge, Rollins, and Wadleigh) offer miles of hiking and biking trails. For a taste of the region's finest vintages, head 30 minutes north to Danbury's Haunting Whisper Vineyards. Antiquing is also popular in the Lake Sunapee region; ask your hosts for suggestions in the area.

The wine, the antiques, the Victorian architecture—with this week's Escape, you might reconsider your search for the Fountain of Youth. After all, it seems just about everything gets better with age.

  • "From the moment we walked in the door, we knew we had picked the right place. A cozy fire was going in the breakfast nook, the smell of freshly baked cookies was in the air, and we were greeted with a smile. Breakfast was fresh and delicious."
