Wonderful Anniversary Weekend

5 on April 02, 2014

We recently stayed at Stonecroft Country Inn for the second time, in the Grange's Orlando room, for our 4th wedding anniversary. We had a marvelous weekend stay - the rooms are well-appointed and inviting, the common area and grounds are very well-kept, and you definitely get a welcoming vibe. Jim and Marcie were just wonderful, very accommodating and gracious innkeepers who took care of all of our needs. The full country breakfast was delicious and filling both mornings. My husband and I will definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for a night last Friday to Saturday. I have to say we loved it! The room was huge. Bed was comfortable. We stayed in the Nor'easter. Its located in a renovated barn. Place was immaculate. It had a gas fireplace, with a TV above it. Tv was a bit small, so to really watch it you had to sit on the nice sofa they had in front of the fireplace. Cant really complain though, as watching TV shouldn't be the reason you go. We ended up watching one movie from the DVD library they had right outside our door. That was nice. The bathroom was literally half the size of the room. The jacuzzi was huge. The breakfast in the morning was very nice and the room was so beautiful. There were windows to the backyard that took up one half of the room with a great view for a nice breakfast. Both of the Innkeepers were very nice. We didn't see them much, we didn't stay for that long but both were very informative and seemed genuinely interested in us. I would highly recommend it. Literally ten minutes from anything, including casinos, mystic village and downtown mystic. But the awesome part was it was seemingly in the middle of nowhere in a nice country setting.

A great stay in a great place!

Awesome location minutes from all the local attractions. The Sarah Suite was lovely and the bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept in.

A Hidden Gem

4.8 on February 28, 2014

The Stonecroft Inn is off the beaten path, but also very near Mystic, New London, Groton, and the casinos. It is a delightful B&B with spacious rooms that are very comfortable and beautifully decorated. The Innkeepers are helpful and friendly, and knowledgeable of the area. We would highly recommend the Stonecroft Inn.

Wonderful Getaway! Definitely will be back!

Jim and Marcie we wonderful and made us feel so welcome. The Inn is conveniently located less than 10 min from historic Mystic Ct. There's so much to do - even in February! The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. We had a great night's sleep in the queen sized bed too! We stayed in the Nor'easter and the jacuzzi tub was heaven especially on a cold February evening. Breakfast, although the options were limited was delicious none the less. The muffins.... I'm still dreaming about them! My fiance and I are looking forward to returning this summer with our kayaks. I highly recommend the Stonecroft Country Inn for a weekend getaway, family gathering or girls weekend. This Inn is truly special. Best, MJ Bray & Justin Miller Feb 2014
