Merricks North, Australia

It’s easy to luxuriate at this boldly re­modeled 143-year-old homestead, located on a vineyard in Australia’s Mornington Peninsula. But the hotel’s most memorable feature may well be the art, including a 10,000-bulb chandelier meant to evoke the champagne-­fermentation process, and the namesake sculpture—a 23-ft. ode to the mythical jackalope (a rabbit with antelope horns). —Eli Meixler
