It is very infrequent that I take the time to review restaurants or hotels, etc.; but in this instance I felt compelled to give credit where credit is due. This B&B is exceptionally clean, it has that mix of historic charm and modern amenities that I was looking for, and the inn keepers are extremely warm and kind. I would recommend staying here again... I certainly will be returning.

Jim and Sandra are wonderful innkeepers; they gave us recommendations for restaurants and places to visit in the area and did everything they could to make our stay as relaxing as possible. Breakfast in the morning was delicious, and we particularly enjoyed our conversations with the other visitors of the inn. Would love to stay again!

My family and I recently stayed just for one night as it was located near Mystic Seaport which we were interested in visiting. The house was very old with tons of character and charm...in line with that, this is not your pristine, minimalist place to stay and if you expect that you'll do fine. The bathroom in the Russell suite looked new and clean and had a rolled top bath with a shower above it. It had a gas fireplace which was nice on a cold evening coming home from dinner. The bed was fairly creaky probably due to the frame arrangement. Breakfast was served in the dining room downstairs...beautifully set with many courses to delight in. Lovely way to start the day. All in all, a lovely old house in a beautiful setting with a few liveable quirks.

Having run a B&B in England for 12 years we tend to be hyper critical. As this was our first stay in a B&B in USA we did not know what to expect. The whole experience was very good and the attention to detail 1st class. Sandra's breakfast was worth the stay on it's own! Thank you for making our stay in Stonington so memorable.
