Who knew the National Trust for Historic Preservation dabbled in hotels?

Its Historic Hotels of America organization and partner Historic Hotels Worldwide are offering more than 3,000 travel packages this summer with special rates at historic lodgings with perks that range from dinner credits in Napa to tickets to the Babe Ruth Museum in Baltimore.

All the usual fine print applies – blackout dates, restrictions, taxes and fees extra, etc. – but a wine country getaway, for example, to the Napa River Inn ($249 and up, midweek only in June and July) includes wine tasting at the swanky 1901 boutique hotel, a $100 dining credit at Fish Story or Morimoto Napa and breakfast in bed.

The Grand Hotel (1887) on Mackinac Island is offering a “Pure Michigan” package ($396 and up, midweek in July) that includes a five-course dinner and full breakfast, two tickets to the Mackinac Art Museum and golf green fees (there’s a golf cart fee, unless you, um, BYOGC).

And Babe Ruth fans might want to check out the deal ($224 and up, midweek, June and July) at Baltimore’s recently renovated Lord Baltimore Hotel.
