About Mayflower Inn & Spa, Auberge Resorts Collection
This tranquil destination spa and stylishly decorated 19th-century country house hotel is set amid 58 acres of manicured gardens in a Litchfield County village two hours from New York City. The 30 sumptuous accommodations occupy four elegantly restored buildings, with many offering gas fireplaces, antique four-poster beds and oversized marble baths with brass and Limoges fittings, deep tubs and separate walk-in showers. Recently renovated by designer Celerie Kemble, the hotel features fresh and imaginative interiors that showcase a bright and contemporary look with colorful murals, painted in imitation of prints by the 18th-century English entomologist and engraver Moses Harris. Vibrant public areas include the inviting restaurant, relaxed Tap Room bar with live piano music on Fridays and Saturdays, and a library. The property also encompasses a splendid 20,000-square-foot spa with an indoor pool, an outdoor pool (heated May through October), a putting green, tennis courts and several fitness studios. More than 20 complimentary fitness classes are offered each week.
