Enter with me to tour part one of our Saybrook Point Inn & Spa. Experience history, seaside charm and nature.
Fun. Relaxing. Elegant.
My mom called me Monday morning, after our weekend getaway, to say thank you for taking her to Saybrook Point Inn & Spa. It was fun, relaxing and elegant. What a great sentence to sum up our perfect weekend.
I had never been to Old Saybrook, CT before, but I have fallen in love with this seaside town. It has a rich, charming history that spills over into Saybrook Point Inn and Spa. Photos of Katherine Hepburn hang on the walls as her family home is less than 5 minutes away. You’ll see photos of the Rat Pack with a description under their photo saying they “owned” the bar. They were there so often that people thought they did. A room in the Fresh Salt Restaurant holds the historic former name of the Terra Mar bar.
President Kennedy made his presence often. It’s also been said that mob members sat in corners of this bar as well. There is so much history in this inn, that I thought perhaps at times I would possibly bump into one of the famous who walked the halls here in the past.
Mom and I strolled into history, heading to Main Street where there were antique and gift shops. The Saybrook Country Barn on 2 Main St, has something for everyone. There was also Walt’s Food Market, where Katherine Hepburn would go to when she was in town. Residence spoke of her riding down the street on her bike to head to Walt’s for her needs for the weekend. Take a tour or see a show at The Kate: The Katherine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center.
Drive, borrow a bike from the Inn or walk not far from The Saybrook Point Inn to head to a cove. You’ll cross a bridge where you’ll see some locals fishing. You may spot several swans seeming to perform a synchronized swimming performance.
You’ll make your way to a golf course where you can stroll the edges and admire the beautiful homes, flowering trees and do some bird watching. This too is where you can see Hepburn’s home.
The Saybrook Point Inn is as charming and as beautiful as its surroundings. My next segment will bring you into several rooms of the inn where you’ll see no two rooms are the same. You’ll see marina views, the dining atmosphere, fine food and ways to pamper yourself. I’ll also introduce you to their other properties adjust to the inn, one is called Three Stories. Until then, look at their gallery photos, take a virtual tour and book a getaway for you.
