White Hart Inn, Connecticut

If you’re looking for a quick escape from the intensity of Manhattan, check into White Hart, a charming 16-room inn just three hours from New York City. Set in the quaint New England town of Salisbury, Connecticut, just steps from the Appalachian Trail, there are myriad indie shops, antique stores, and farmers markets to explore near the recently renovated and reopened inn and restaurant. For Mother’s Day, chef Annie Wayte will offer a three-course seasonal prix fixe ($39) with dishes like brioche French toast with rhubarb compote and mascarpone, as well as ricotta gnocchi with spring vegetables and whey broth. Each mom will take home a beautiful potted plant from one of the local gardeners.
