Though the most expensive suites at this inn cost upwards of $1,000 a night, the elegant Mayflower is often booked months in advance. Running streams, rambling stone walls, and rare specimen trees fill the country-manor-style inn's 28 manicured acres. Fine antiques, 18th- and 19th-century art, and four-poster canopy beds define each of the rooms. The colossal baths have mahogany wainscoting, marble trim, and brass fittings. The 20,000-square-foot spa has earned a reputation
as one of New England's finest such facilities—treatments like antioxidant-rich violet facials and mud wraps are highly popular.
