Outstanding B&B!

5 on March 30, 2014

This is absolutely the best Bed & Breakfast we have ever stayed at! They had very nice rooms, made better by the fact that they had a lot of history in the house, with which the proprieters were well acquainted. We didn't need it but they even make accommodation for certain dietary needs in a fantastic 5-course breakfast.


Lovely and quaint B&B

4.0 on March 19, 2014

Recently stayed in the Russell Suite of Another Second Penny Inn. It was adorable! Lots of space, bed was comfortable and the fireplace was nice. I would only warn people of the shower. It's the most high pressure hand held shower I've used! The InnKeeper was pleasant and accomodating. The 5 course breakfast that was served in the dining room made us feel like royalty. She also had homemade cookies and snacks out throughout the day which was nice. We added the celebration package of flowers, wine and cheese. The cheese plate was magnificent. I also like that the room had a mini fridge, stocked with soda and water.The location was also perfect! 10 mins from Mystic, and 10 mins from downtown Stonington. This was my first experience with a B&B and I would highly recommend Another Second Penny Inn if visiting Mystic.

Lovely place, the Denison is a fantastic room. Although the bed is a bit too squeaky. our manager was delightful and a great cook.


A sincere pleasure

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.
