The old growth oaks are at their peak color. Rosy red and vibrant orange leaves litter the Connecticut countryside. A white-tipped frost settles over the perennial gardens. The sun makes its descent just a little bit earlier every day. And inside the Norwich Inn’s spa, the autumn harvest is in full swing.

We know what you’re thinking: How does a Connecticut spa manage to gather the great outdoors, indoors? With a little help from its friends, of course! Inside the Spa at Norwich Inn, seasonal companions like pumpkin puree, cranberry extracts and just a hint of cedar bark work their skin-benefiting magic on your world-weary body and mind. We couldn’t get enough of seasonal treatments like the Cranberry Fig Body Scrub, a sweet-smelling concoction of cranberry to invigorate, fig to exfoliate and a luxurious application of pumpkin body butter to restore much-needed moisture from head to toe. The Spa at Norwich Inn is easily one of the largest inns we’ve seen, but despite its ample size, this Connecticut inn stays true to its quaint bed and breakfast roots. Here in the historic seaport town of Mystic, this Georgian Colonial mansion-turned-New England inn is surrounded by equally stunning grounds. Centuries-old maples line the drive, while stately red bricks wrap everything from the Norwich Inn’s exterior to the walkways that meander past its perennial gardens and reflecting pool.
