Saybrook Point Inn and Spa

One of the most charming and down-to-earth seaside resorts I have ever stayed at. Located just twenty minutes away by car from New London, Saybrook Point Inn and Spa offers beautiful, scenic views of of the Connecticut River and Long Island Sound. A perfect getaway for the weekend away from Boston or New York City as well as a prime location for a wedding or family reunion, the resort and spa is also less than thirty minutes away from Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods, offering an exceptional alternative to relax the weekend away with the close proximity of the arenas and casinos. Old Saybrook itself is a quaint, historic town rich in history. Did you know, for example, that Yale’s original college campus was in what is now Old Saybrook, and the town was the former home of one of Hollywood’s greatest, Katharine Hepburn? There is a cultural arts center affectionately named ‘The Kate’ in her honor less than two miles from the Inn.

The details and amenities throughout are exquisite. The Inn includes several different types of accommodations including the Main Inn, two guesthouses, the Lighthouse Suite located on the marina, and vacation and long term rentals. Their villas are available for you to enjoy year-round on a weekly and monthly basis or even longer. The two historic guesthouses, Tall Tales and Three Stories, located just steps away and opposite from the Main Inn, allowing for ample privacy. The houses feature living spaces such as common room areas, game rooms, and roof-top fire pits that are perfect for mingling with fellow guests, enjoying a late night snack or early breakfast.

Dinner at Fresh Salt at Saybrook Point Inn and Spa

Fresh Salt at Saybrook Point Inn & Spa in Old Saybrook, Connecticut encompasses every dreamy detail of your perfect restaurant: local, seasonal ingredients; friendly, genuine staff, fantastic food, and some of the most breathtaking views of the Connecticut River. The dining room as well as its outdoor dining space, including a high top table, overlooks the mouth of the Connecticut River where it meets the Long Island Sound, and has a stunning vantage point of the marina. Inside, the coastal interior is very warm and inviting, with cozy corner booths and dim lighting.

There was plenty of activity throughout the restaurant and bar area when we arrived on a Friday evening in late October. Our waitress, the sweetest woman we had ever met, went above and beyond by suggesting a dish from each course from their dinner menu as well as detailing local points of interest in the area. She truly wanted us to have a wonderful experience while tasting a variety of dishes, and we certainly did!
