Seeking a Charming Inn Without the Florals and Lace

Any suggestions for inns or small hotels that incorporate modern/minimalist design? I'm trying to avoid the Victorian, lace, floral aesthetic. I'm particularly interested in the New England/East Coast area.

There's certainly a time and place for a traditional B&B, but I'm looking for a getaway in a pretty, nature-filled location, that involves less of that "staying at grandma's house" feeling. In other words, not so much with the quilts and antiques.
We recently spent a few days in Sonoma at the H2 Hotel
in Healdsburg and that fit the bill pretty nicely. We live in NYC, so I'm looking for a nice non-floral place that's within driving distance for a long weekend. (But I'd definitely be curious about places in other regions, too!)
It's strangely difficult to search for this online because the term "modern" is used in so many ways. I'm looking for a chic, minimal, IKEA-ish aesthetic. When I use these kinds of keywords, I get Holiday Inns and Hiltons. Any recommendations would be much appreciated.
