The Mayflower Grace is a picture perfect rural retreat set amongst acres of landscaped gardens and woodland in the idyllic town of Washington, Connecticut, ideally located within easy driving distance of New York City. Conducive to some serious relaxation, this is a beautiful destination spa, affording luxurious facilities in a stunning and peaceful setting, and makes for a perfect add-on to days spent pounding the pavements in the Big Apple.
A member of the renowned Relais & Chateaux group, The Mayflower Grace offers spoiling accommodations, with just 30 rooms and suites spread between four charming buildings, each with its own unique character. No comfort is overlooked, with feather-topped mattresses, plump oversized pillows, thick duvets and luxurious linens by Frette adorning the antique four poster beds. Well stocked mini-bars, oriental rugs, marble baths and gas fireplaces also feature throughout.
The standout feature is undoubtedly The Mayflower Spa, a haven of tranquility which offers a series of a la carte treatments throughout the week and a variety of restorative wellness packages to boot. The Spa House was designed to feel more like a residence than a hotel facility and it truly enhances the experience, feeling much more like a home from home. Seasonal outdoor activities can also be experienced as part of the spa program and everything can be completely personalized to ensure you leave feeling utterly relaxed.
Spread between four charming buildings - Mayflower House, Speedwell Cottage, Standish Cottage and Allerton Cottage - there are just 30 rooms and suites at The Mayflower Grace, all offering luxurious furnishings and catering to every creature comfort. The overall style remains fairly traditional, while clean white decor and fresh splashes of color add a touch of the contemporary. Antique four poster beds are furnished with feather mattress toppers, plush duvets and oversized pillows to promote a great night's sleep. Rooms also come with gas fireplaces and well-stocked mini-bars and a superb collection of 18th and 19th century art can be found throughout. Marble bathrooms come complete with both soaking tubs and showers.

When to go
Fall is Washington's most glorious season, though spring and summer are pleasant as well. These times bring in healthy-sized crowds due to favourable weather and special events. Weather usually remains warm throughout September, while cooler temperatures in October bring out the colorful foliage. Winter lasts too long for most people's tastes, stretching from December to April. During this period, visitors can expect temperatures below freezing and plenty of snow.
