Our Stories


Learn My Day as a Lazy Otter

Shallow, clear, and like a bowl of tranquility, nearly one thousand kettle ponds dot the brilliant terrain of the Northeast. When my family and I first began to plan our trip to Mayflower Inn & Spa, I thought we would spend all of our time enjoying the area’s plentiful hiking trails through meadows and woodlands. But thanks to an insider tip, we ventured off-the-beaten-path to these isolated freshwater pools, where we had the water all to ourselves.

Go How I Got an Exclusive Invitation to Connecticut's Secret Stiletto Stampede

I never knew I would find my perfect pair of Manolo Blahniks in the rolling hills of Connecticut. Beyond a pasture rife with bright red barns and hundreds of free-roaming cows, I traded in my exclusive invitation from the Mayflower to enter Arethusa Farm & Dairy, where Manolo Blahnik’s President and VP George Malkemus and Tony Yurgaitis have led operations since 1999.

Go The Secrets of Steep Rock

Hiking has always set me at ease, and I look forward to trips to Connecticut for the serenity that comes with being immersed in the surrounding natural splendor. That’s exactly why I keep returning to the trails that wind along the Steep Rock Preserve. Not only does the 998-acres of idyllic hiking trails reveal sweeping viewpoints, lush hillsides, and babbling brooks with every step, but also unveils historic, hidden gems along the way.
