21 Rooms / 9 Suites

Grace Mayflower Inn & Spa, a country inn located less than two hours from New York City, evokes the feeling and elegance of an English countryside hotel.

Set on 58 acres of rolling hills, streams and lush gardens, Grace Mayflower Inn & Spa features guest rooms and suites swathed in luxurious fabrics; four-poster, canopied beds; 18th- and 19th-century art and modern touches like flat-screen TVs. The inn's intimate size means you'll receive focused, friendly attention from the accommodating staff.

Our Inspector's Highlights

• The finely manicured grounds — featuring stunning specimen trees, beautiful gardens and ponds — are a nature lover's delight.

• With an extensive menu of treatments, workshops and activities, the Mayflower Spa will leave you feeling rejuvenated and recharged. We particularly love the spa's Garden Room and indoor pool, which both feature sublime decor and stunning views.

• Charm, romance and antiques fill the luxury hotel, especially the inn's library and parlor, which is the perfect place to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail or a good book.

• We love the personalized, friendly service at Grace Mayflower Inn & Spa. The youthful staff tends to your needs, without being cloying or pushy.

• Overall, we love the peace and quiet that can be found at The Mayflower. With only 30 guest rooms and 58 acres, there are plenty of places for serenity and privacy.

Things to Know
• The Connecticut hotel is more of a traditional country inn than a modern resort. So if you're looking to run on a state-of-the-art elliptical machine with an iPad in tow, you may be disappointed here.

• The area is a destination for antiquing, and there are plenty of antiquing tours to take advantage of during your stay.

The Rooms

• The rooms at Grace Mayflower Inn & Spa are all different — each has its own unique style and country charm.

• All the rooms at the luxury hotel are decorated like a luxurious old English country manor, complete with 18th- and 19th-century antiques, plush fabrics, Frette linens and four-poster canopy beds.

• There is a sitting area with a writing desk, a closet and a cabinet, as well as a well-stocked mini bar and a modern flat-screen TV and DVD player. Many rooms feature a gas fireplace, a balcony or, if you're lucky, both.

• You’ll find lovely little touches throughout — from a welcoming white orchid to a dish full of fresh apples to a selection of books.

The Restaurants

• The Mayflower Dining Room, helmed by executive chef Isaac Olivo, serves upscale contemporary American cuisine, incorporating local New England ingredients in every dish.

• The Dining Room features a unique offering for oenophiles: a selection of Coravin wines. The Coravin is a tool that allows a bottle to be poured without removing the cork, allowing the restaurant to offer premium bottles, like Stag’s Leap chardonnay, by the glass.

• Expect fresh, seasonal fare like Maine lobster tartan with Meyer lemon, Fossil Farm suckling pig with huckleberries and coconut cake with lemongrass sorbet.

• For more casual, pub-style dining, head to the adjacent Tap Room, or stop in for pre- or post-dinner cocktails.
