Mayflower Inn & Spa At A Glance:
One of New England's most opulent inns, The Mayflower has reinvented itself as a destination spa from Monday through Friday. It accommodates just 28 people at any one time (usually women only, though there are co-ed and men's weeks during the year.) A personal spa advisor helps you craft an individualized program, which includes plenty of exercise classes and outdoor activities. The 1,600 calorie a day spa menu features grassfed beef, pasture chickens and organic vegetables. Think of this ultra-luxurious and tasteful spa the Cal-A-Vie of the East Coast.
