The Mayflower Inn & Spa in foreclosure
The Mayflower Inn & Spa is in foreclosure, having defaulted on its $21.5 million mortgage. Papers filed in Connecticut superior court and Associated Press reports show that the Mayflower Inn & Spa is in the midst of true financial difficulties, but details were difficult to obtain at mid-week, according to an article by the Litchfield County Times.
“We’re very far removed from that,” said General Manager John Trevenen. “We’re not in the least bit concerned. It has little bearing on the day-to-day operations of the Mayflower.” He went on to say the operation is in no danger of closing, staffing is not threatened and that business is up from last year.
However, the inn is behind on its property taxes as well, the Litchfield Times reports. Washington tax collector Tanya Wescott told the paper that the Mayflower currently owes more than $36,000 in back taxes, but she expects the bill to be paid by the end of June.
