If you are in need of a luxurious and memorable getaway, Connecticut's Saybrook Point Inn & Spa is ready to offer world-class service and New England charm, right at the mouth of the Connecticut River. Not only does Saybrook Point offer luxury amenities like a full service spa, restaurant, marina, and health club, but you can travel with your whole family, both human and canine. Saybrook has a dog friendly policy that means your pet can feel as pampered as you do during your stay. Also, Saybrook Point Inn & Spa prides itself on being an eco-friendly lodging spot, with green initiatives implemented facility-wide. The hotel contributed to the restoration of Long Island Sound and the return of dolphins to the waters nearby for the first time in several decades.
Saybrook Point Inn & Spa offers the historic charm of a time gone by with forward thinking green initiatives. Guests have been enjoying the salty sea air, beautiful sea views, and homey local town of Old Saybrook for over 130 years. Whether they are looking for a fun getaway with friends, a picturesque location for a wedding, or a comfortable place to rest after a busy day spent out on the water, Saybrook Point Inn & Spa will provide the services and amenities expected at a luxury hotel. Their environmentally conscious policies and practices will ensure the fragile and beautiful ocean, wetlands, and wildlife will be around far into the future.
Even though Saybrook has been providing luxury lodging for many years, it was the recent efforts of current owner Stephen Tagliatela to introduce and maintain sustainable practices throughout Saybrook's facilities that earned the resort accolades for its commitment to green. In addition to the hotel's green meetings program, which helps provide companies and groups with eco-friendly meeting spaces and practices, the hotel has incorporated a number of green initiatives. The hotel features a solar panel, a waste-water system, organic lawn care, and a watering system with rain sensors, all installed during the hotel's recent renovation. The oceanside location makes Saybrook the perfect spot to enjoy the local landscapes and wildlife. Hotel staff is happy to arrange eco-activities such as Audubon Tours, birding tours, and sightseeing, plus historic tours of the towns of Old Saybrook or Essex.
In addition to luxury guest rooms, the Saybrook also offers villas featuring a fireplace and a private balcony for extended stays, the private Lighthouse Suite on the dock for groups or families, and the addition of the Three Stories bed and breakfast, slated for completion in the spring of 2013. The hotel's dog friendly policy lets you bring along your family pet during your stay, and the hotel will provide a dog bed, treats, and a souvenir bandana. The hotel can arrange dog sitting services so you can relax and enjoy your own activities while your dog is pampered and cared for.
Enjoying a massage, facial, manicure or pedicure at the Sanno Spa; keeping up with your fitness routine at the health club's pools, exercise classes or fitness machines, and then unwinding in the sauna or whirlpool; or enjoying a delicious meal and glass of wine at the Fresh Salt Restaurant's waterfront location are a few of the many ways guests stay busy during their stay. Enjoy a day in New York City, which is a two hour drive, head to the casino, or take the kids to medieval Gillette Castle.
Boaters will find boating paradise at Saybrook Point Inn & Spa. The hotel's Marina can accommodate boats up to 200 feet long, and it offers all the services a boater would need, including free pump-outs, a recycle program for boat batteries and used motor oil, and attentive marina staff to help with any matters that arise. Saybrook Point Inn & Spa could be your next eco-friendly, luxury destination if you are looking for that historic charm at a hotel that takes their environmental responsibility as seriously as they do their guests' satisfaction.
