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
In an rather unprecedented weather incident on Tuesday afternoon, May 15th, Southbury, CT and the surrounding areas were hit with a now confirmed EF-1 Tornado. The damage to the surrounding communities is truly like nothing that we have seen - if ever. Widespread power outages and severe damage to many surrounding roads have made travel in and around town very tricky, if not impossible in some spots. In any case, I had two experiences this week which show the absolutely GREAT customer service this hotel showed to our community! When it mattered most, the Heritage Hotel opened its doors to those in need and did so without blinking an eye. As I work locally, I made a very unfortunate decision to leave my job right at 5 pm - just as this major storm hit. There was blinding rain, debris flying just about everywhere, huge trees falling into the Main Street, hail the size of golf balls, and winds upwards of 100 miles per hour. I pulled into a local parking lot to ride this out...thankfully I did. After it started to subside, I went to my Manager and coworker who never made it out of our building complex. We drove around and ultimately were able to make our way to the Heritage Hotel. Once there, with no power, we went to the Bar/Restaurant who had put out sandwiches and chips, and fruit for those of us who were stranded. The bar staff could not have been nicer and the hotel was ready and willing to accommodate us with a room. Fortunately, my husband was able to make his way to me, and we were able to get to our home about 1.5 miles away. Well, today, after 2 days of no power, I used the last bit of hot water in our hot water heaters tank to take a shower. With a wet head, I decided to go to the hotel to see if they would allow me to pay a daily rate to go to the Gym area/Ladies locker room to blow dry my hair. They were so very gracious and said that I did not need to pay anything - they would happily allow me to use their facilities - and told me come back if I needed a shower the next day. In a time of need, this hotel did the right thing for the local community and the kindness, and great customer service will not soon be forgotten. A+, A+ A+....please support this wonderful establishment! Thank you to Jennifer, and Beth!!
I have had many facials over the years, but this facial was a facial experience!! From aromatherapy, head, neck, shoulder, arm and hand massages, to an amazing foot massage, this is not your typical facial. Alexis was truly spectacular and crafted the facial superbly to meet my needs. Her light touch was soothing, and my face was truly glowing when I left. Thank you Alexis! You are a wonderful new addition to the Heritage Spa!
I chose this hotel for the indoor pool to treat my 9 year old grandson for a night out during his spring break. What a mistake!!! The health club members and male staff employee treated us like we were intruders, not guests. The pool and exercise area is really only for adults, kids are not welcomed at this hotel!
The facilities and staff exceeded my expectations! Plenty of parking & rooms, indoor & outdoor pools, hot tub, large gym with plenty of equipment options, spa, billiards, arcade, 2 restaurants, bar, vending machines, tourism info, corporate meeting rooms and plenty of lounge areas where you can have a private conversation. I stayed 2 nights recently (Wed/Thurs) as part of a large party. The hotel staff assigned us rooms near each other, making it easy to meet up. There were 3 weddings taking place on Friday night. Timberlands Restaurant which serves a great breakfast buffet until 10am was decorated for the wedding reception - it was beautiful - it's on a lower level so you can look down into the room. The French onion soup from The Tavern restaurant was delicious and it was delivered to the desk I worked from during the day, when I connected my laptop to their free WiFi access. General Manager, David Rijos noticed I was working from their lobby for a while, asked if I need anything and even stopped by later with a box of Cracker Jacks. The service at this hotel is amazing. Within walking distance, there is a Friendly's and local deli. Hotel is great for couples, families and the reception desk said pets are allowed for a $50 fee. I live in CT and I can easily see myself returning for a relaxing get away weekend.
snacks available via machines but not on all floors. soda and water available via machines.
Rooms were well cleaned and comfortable. local area provided a family friendly restaurant adjacent to the parking lot and other shops as well.
