Lovely and romantic

3.6 on August 27, 2014

Every morning was a pleasure waking up at the Stonecroft Inn and each evening we looked forward to climbing back into our big comfy bed there. Marcie and Jim are a lovely couple who enjoy seeing you relaxed, basking in the romantic surroundings. Thank you for a great weekend!

Romantic Getaway

4.8 on July 21, 2014

We found a one-night stay at the Stonecroft Country Inn to be a luxurious, romantic getaway. The magnificent grounds, the spacious and well-appointed room, and the lovely breakfast all contributed to a special experience. Jim and Marcie couldn't have been more generous and accommodating. We recommend this Inn to all!!!

Quiet Country Setting Close to Mystic Seaport and Casinos

4.6 on May 25, 2014

Rooms were very well appointed with the expected amenities plus a two person Jacuzzi tub. Innkeepers were very gracious and accommodating hosts. Breakfast was included and served individually (not a buffet). One member of our party had food sensitivities and the Innkeepers went out of their way to accommodate her needs.

Lovely B&B

5 on May 15, 2014

Absolutely loved our stay at the Stonecroft Inn. The Briar Rose room is lovely, comfortable and very clean. Innkeepers Jim & Marcie are very friendly & courteous. They gave us a personal greeting and served us breakfast in the beautiful dining room in the morning. The Inn is located in a very peaceful country setting. We will definately return again for a longer stay. Thank you Jim & Marcie

April 2014 visit

5 on April 20, 2014

We had a great weekend staying at the Stonecroft Country Inn. The Inn property is very charming and perfect for a wedding which was the reason for our stay. All parties attending the ceremony stayed at the Inn and the feedback from our guests was very positive.

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.
