Press Room

Welcome to Saybrook Point Resort & Marina. Located on the confluence of the Connecticut River and the Long Island Sound, our resort and inn has a storied history with cameos by the likes of the Rat Pack and Barbara Maynard.

Today, we encompass a full-service spa, a green marina capable of accommodating mega-yachts, an award-winning waterfront restaurant, and lodging in the main inn, vacation villas, and chic guesthouses. All of this is incredibly easy to access, as we are just 2 hours from both New York City and Boston, and a stone’s throw from the local Amtrak station.
