Oh Baby - Great Connecticut Hotels for a “Babymoon” Last Updated 3/19
Whether this is your first child or your fifth, you know that once baby comes home, that “alone time” for parents is almost non-existent for a while. Preparing for delivery, or even going through the adoption process, can be so stressful on a relationship. Babymoons were invented for just that reason. Like honeymoons, they are a chance for the couple to relax, reconnect and even rekindle romance. But if you aren’t up for a long flight to an exotic destination, consider one of these Connecticut destinations for a weekend or midweek escape with a little pampering before baby arrives. Ask about “Babymoon” packages that may include experiences like dinner for two, spa treatments and other special treats!
Romance at the Shore - Saybrook Point Inn & Spa
Stay in a water view suite or cuddle up in one of the chic guesthouse rooms (above) at Saybrook Point Inn & Spa in Old Saybrook. Get pampered with a massage and then feed your cravings at Fresh Salt. Main Street in Old Saybrook offers plenty of strolling and shopping opportunities, too.
Charm & Chocolate - Inn at Harbor Hill Marina
Enjoy a toast with sparkling cider and a box of chocolate truffles when you spend two nights relaxing in one of the Inn at Harbor Hill’s comfy rooms with a soothing water view. Niantic is a quintessentially New England town, with shopping, spas and sailing just a short ride away.
Breakfast for Two (or Three) - Scranton Seahorse Inn
Madison's pretty Scranton Seahorse Inn is a shoreline bed & breakfast that offers a cozy place to stay and an onsite day spa, too. Packages include a freshly made breakfast with local farm specialties. Still hungry? A short walk to French bistro Bar Bouchee will satisfy cravings.
Weekend of Wellness - Mayflower Inn & Spa, Washington

Desserts & Delights - Inn at Middletown, Middletown
Enjoy a relaxing, romantic night at the Inn at Middletown before the new addition to your family with a stay in downtown Middletown, steps away from shopping, dining and entertainment. Your Babymoon package stay includes breakfast and even complimentary desserts delivered to your room!
