For an over-the-top experience at a luxurious Connecticut country estate, consider immersing yourself in the bliss of The Mayflower Grace near Washington, CT. Situated amid 3,000 acres of undisturbed nature, this 30-room luxury hotel and spa represents one of the finest New England lodging experiences you will ever know. The sophisticated hideaway tucks you in with more amenities than you’ll need, but it’s good to know you won’t run short of ways to primp, pamper, and refresh while you are out in the Connecticut countryside. This bespoke lodging option comes with a caveat: If you have to ask, it is probably a bit rich for your budget, but you won’t know if you don’t ask, and it’s OK to splurge once in a while.
The Simsbury Inn is a destination hotel convenient to Hartford as well as the airport, with tennis courts, pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, fine art gallery, gym, and three acclaimed dining options on its gracious grounds in the Connecticut countryside. Rates are more affordable than The Mayflower, but a bit higher than most in Hartford and the surrounding area. Connecticut has mastered the art of the country inn, however, and there are dozens of similar options to choose from, but The Simsbury remains closest to Hartford and the airport.
