The no-stoplight town Tivoli has a clutch of indie design shops and restaurants, and is home to one of the valley's unique accommodations, Ham House (144 Kidd Lane; hamhouse.com), an 1854 Italianate mansion that was Saul Bellow's house when he wrote Herzog. It's now a sumptuously restored B&B and the perfect place for penning your own novel.
