Nestled in the New England countryside in the idyllic town of Washington, Conn., lies a place of perfection, The Mayflower Inn and Spa. The luxury hotel offers a serene respite for those looking to get away from it all. Check into one of the 30 guest rooms, and you’re likely to find an antique, four-poster bed with Frette linens, an enormous marble soaking tub, a gas fireplace and a gorgeous view of the grounds. Curl up with a book from the Mayflower’s wood-paneled library, or head over to the 20,000-square-foot spa to indulge in one of the many enticing treatments. In addition to the usual massages and facials, you’ll find interesting options like an Immune Booster Treatment (dry brushing, hot ginger compress, essential oil-imbued balm, acupressure and reflexology) and a Seasonal Balancing Ritual (body wash, exfoliation, scalp treatment and massage). Also on the menu: aquatic classes, yoga, Pilates, tai chi and qi gong, chakra balancing, guided imagery and sound therapy.
Guests looking to enjoy the scenery can go cross-country skiing or snowshoeing on one of the many trails in the nearby Steep Rock Nature Preserve or Woodbury Ski Area, or just take a leisurely walk around the expansive 58-acre property. Fine dining awaits in the Main Dining Room, or you can grab a bite to eat in the more casual Tap Room. Executive Chef Justin Ermini uses seasonal and local ingredients to create what he calls authentic “Connecticut cuisine.” We just call it good.
If you can tear yourself away from the Mayflower, you’ll return to the real world refreshed in mind, body and spirit.
