Luxury Lodging: The Mayton Inn

The Mayton Inn recently opened its doors in quaint Cary, currently the second largest town in North Carolina. Owners Colin and Deanna Crossman revealed the boutique hotel in February. Although the building is new, the Crossmans kept the colonial feel in mind when designing the property, fitting perfectly with the Cary Arts Center down the street. The bed and breakfast includes a full hot breakfast from their restaurant, The Verandah, run by Executive Chef Jeff Gompers.

Builders today have various opportunities to incorporate sustainable features into buildings, and the Crossmans took advantage of that. The property houses a 20,000 gallon rainwater cistern, which collects rainwater and is then used for irrigation and outdoor watering.The Mayton Inn guest rooms have fully integrated energy management system, which can sense when the room is occupied and allow the thermostat and power to be shut off (aside from charging when the room is vacant. Guest rooms are also equipped with low-flow bathroom fixtures and LED lights to save energy and water.

Strategically located in the basement of the hotel to avoid noise, Tonic Remedies is the in-house spa. Since they just opened, the spa offerings are limited to massages, but will eventually expand into a variety of services. I recommend the Signature Mayton Remedy, a 70-minute Swedish massage tailored to your tension areas. Add in aromatherapy to personalize your wellness experience.

 

Room Amenities

Each room at this property has a unique touch to it. The decor continues from the lobby and hallways into the guest rooms, completing the southern colonial experience. The king size bed is adorned by heavenly 400-thread count sheets. At most bed and breakfasts (and hotels for that matter), noise from your neighbors is a usual complaint. Rooms at the Mayton Inn have an adjustable sound masking option, allowing white noise to drown out the sounds of the rest of the hotel.

  1. I love the look of this place. I Really like the interior design. It looks like a lot of thought has been put in to it. I´m very big on sustainability, and it´s great that this has also been considered with energy management, LED lights etc. Thanks for highlighting this. I always try to choose hotels based on their sustainability credentials and wish more travel bloggers would note these details.

  2. I really like the design of the hotel and the quirky furniture, it does scream luxury to me. It’s great that the property has been built having in mind sustainability, that is very important for me when I chose a hotel.

  3. I really like the sound masking option! More places should have that. Many times I come in late from a long day and hate accidentally being loud and disturbing something in a neighbouring room!

  4. Love it when hotels incorporate sustainability into their designs. That say’s alot about the Mayton Inn. The little features that the inn incorporates like where to place the spa, the white noise machine, thread count, etc is quite impressive. This is the kind of place I’d love to check out. Thanks for featuring it.

  5. Looks like a great place to stay! Such a bonus that it has its own spa. I would love one of those massages right about now!
