Take a breather at Heritage Hotel Golf, Spa and Conference Center, a convenient, modern property that provides prime comfort in a scenic setting. The hotel prides itself on its resort-level amenities, so be sure to visit the soothing namesake wellness center, as well as the New England pub-style eatery. At The Tavern, you can make your selection from a culinary menu that changes to highlight the season’s freshest ingredients. The same is true at Timbers, a breakfast spot with cathedral-style wood-beamed ceilings, a spacious stone fireplace and picture windows over the grounds.
The inn’s location in Southbury lends itself to outdoor activity, not least at the eponymous Dave Cook-directed golf club, Pomperaug, at which you’ll enjoy playing privileges. If you prefer outdoor to indoor exercise, alternate sessions at the well-equipped fitness center, laps at the saltwater pools and Pilates, yoga and Zumba classes with hikes around Southford Falls, Lovers Leap State Park and Webb Mountain Park. When tired from your day at work or at play, huddle around one of the six wood-burning fireplaces, shoot some pool in the game room, or – speaking of breathing – stop and smell the flowers in the Stone Garden courtyard.
Good to know
Please note that the outdoor swimming pool is only open during the summer months. The indoor pool is open year-round.
Your room is one of 163 convenient, contemporary and warmly decorated guest accommodations. You’ll sleep on a Sealy® pillow-top bed, while a desk and chair allow you to comfortably check work email, catch up the day’s headlines or check in with friends or family online.
You get two choices, dining-wise: Timbers, for buffet breakfast, among a cathedral-style exposed beams and picture windows that lend it an airy feel, and The Tavern. The second spot is a New England-inspired salad-and-sandwich spot, serving dinner each night and opening a bar on Friday and Saturday nights. Expect fresh local ingredients, in dishes like turkey clubs, veggie burgers, pesto caprese melts, flatbreads and chicken parm.
The all-new spa opens seven days a week for massages, facials, waxes, manis and pedis. A highlight of its menu is the Flowers Exfoliating Body Ritual, using Indian jasmine- and French lavender-based ingredients by red flower. The availability of an all-new athletic club will enhance your wellness experience – try Cybex cardio equipment and Pilates, yoga or Zumba classes in the Taraflex™-floored studio, and follow up a dip in the saltwater pools with a session in the saunas and steam rooms.
Southbury is a quiet destination in southwestern Connecticut, with a golf course – where you’ll enjoy playing privileges – and the beautiful Southford Falls. The area is home to other natural attractions, like Lovers Leap State Park and the six-mile Lillinonah Trail. You’re in New Haven county, so take a day trip to Yale, for a walk around the iconic Ivy League campus.
How to Get There
I recently stayed at H.H. for three mini-stays over a month period. Each time I returned, the staff was accommodating and the hospitality remained consistent. The rooms were clean and the pools, both indoor and outdoor, were simply divine. I highly recommend H.H.
I have worked with the Heritage Hotel for a few years now to accommodate groups and their staff and level of services go above and beyond to make sure our groups feel welcome and attended to. This year again, I have received such great feedback from our guests. They will definitely come back again and want to make sure we choose the Heritage as their "headquarters". From the front desk, to the sales team, to the catering manager and team, everyone is there to help. The rooms are great and reasonably priced. I highly recommend it. Booking for next year!
I highly recommend the spa services at the Heritage Hotel! I had an amazing hot stone massage with Heidi, as well as a pedicure. Everyone in the spa area was very friendly, but Christina at the front desk was especially welcoming and helpful. I would definitely come back!
Stayed at the Heritage Hotel for 5 nights while on a business trip. My room was clean, the bed comfortable and the staff very accommodating. Annie, my server in the restaurant, made sure my breakfast was perfect and the coffee hot & fresh! The grounds are beautifully landscaped and inviting for downshifting the day's stress. I had a great stay and plan to stay there for future visits.
I was a member of this gym over a year ago. The amenities are awesome - towel service, great customer service at the desk and when you need assistance, etc. My biggest concern was that there was always one single amenity that was out of order when I went there. Whether it be the pool entirely, the hot tub, the men’s sauna, the women’s sauna, etc., it was just kind of annoying because membership is not cheap. I want to state very clearly that I understood upon signing up that hotel guests would be part of the equation, and I never found that as being an obstacle. However, if a hotel guest is completely non compliant, it makes things kind of sticky. The bigger obstacle for me was the children having swimming lessons in the pool. My other concern would be the cleanliness of the hot sauna in the women’s locker room. I always seemed to find a high volume of long hair stuck to the walls in there, as well as in the showers. I understand, and I will say this up front, that it is hard to keep a women’s gym locker room immaculate at all times but I felt like this particular locker room didn’t the amount of attention one would expect at that membership price. The club manager were very nice and I would never ever blame them for the shortcomings I noticed, but one would imagine with a combination of athletic club members and hotel guests, there would be more emphasis on cleanliness.
