Story and Photos for the Washington Post's FW
We (and by that I mean I) were severely underdressed for lounging at the Umstead. The Forbes five star resort and spa set in a 12-acre wooded grove in Cary, North Carolina warrants slink; champagne satin a la Harlow, marabou mules, a coupe not a flute for the bubbly.
Sleek blond furniture, Frette linens, plush carpets, triple layers of drape, it's tres 1930s drawing room comedy. Bring on Jeeves! Enter Clark Gable. (You can add a pup but Fluffy will add $200 to room tabs that begin at $329).
