The PERFECT place for a romantic getaway!

5 on June 29, 2015

Abbey's Lantern Hill Inn is, quite simply, the perfect place for couples looking to spend some time together in a beautiful, natural, relaxing environment, without sacrificing first-class comfort and amenities. The Inn is located on a lovely country property in a quiet town not far from famous Mystic, CT. The property is kept very well by Erika, the manager, and her team of assistants. There are seven different rooms and the one we chose, the Country Room, was wonderful. There is a second-floor patio with table and chairs, overlooking the property. Erika is clearly very dedicated to ensuring that every single guest is comfortable and happy. She personally cooks breakfast (and there are lots of choices!) and is really good at providing any advice/info you may need concerning where to go and how to get there (and when to go, where to park, which road is more scenic, etc.). The grounds surrounding the rooms where guests stay include, among other things, comfy hammocks that you can just relax in as long as you like. The location is simply perfect. You are away from all the noise and smoke of Foxwoods and the touristy atmosphere of Mystic, yet you can get to each with only a short drive. If you live within 4 hours of this Inn, then you owe it to yourself to visit with your spouse/significant other. (Though those further away will enjoy it just as much!) My wife and I were looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway from the pressures of life and that is exactly what we got. We were not hours away from civilization, though, but really close to one of the most picturesque New England towns, with lots of things to do close by. My wife and I cannot recommend this Inn highly enough. We look forward to coming back again soon. And thank you, Erika, for making our stay so great!

Wintery Valentine's Escape in CT

4.6 on April 22, 2015

Abbey's Lantern Hill Inn was the quick getaway that my wife and I needed. We had an amazing valentine's weekend experience. Erika and the staff were great and spared no stops on making our Wintery Valentine's weekend special.

Our best getaway yet!!!

5 on February 28, 2015

Abbey's Lantern Hill Inn is a winner of Tripadvisor’s “Certificate of Excellence”, a member of BedandBreakfast's Diamond Collection, and certified by Connecticut Green Lodging. The innkeeper, Erika; has a beautiful, cozy, romantic and convenient home for the needs of all occasions. Abbey's Lantern Hill Inn is walking distance to Foxwoods, and only a 5-minute car ride when it is cold. My girlfriend and I cannot wait to go back sometime over the summer!! This inn is not only close to Foxwoods, but Mashantucket Pequot Museum, Mystic Seaport & Aquarium as well as one of New England's finest beaches, Watch Hill, are all under 25-minutes away. My girlfriend and I stayed in the Cadillac Suite, a romantic and spacious room featuring a 2-person Jacuzzi tub surrounded by tropical plants, California redwood and Spanish tile. The room included two large closets for his and her belongings during the stay, some chairs next to the bed, flat-screen TV of course and a very large and beautiful private bathroom. The bathroom extends out to a completely private second –level deck. Each morning, Erika has all sorts of food available for breakfast. If you want something quick and easy, she has granola bars, danishes and other things of that nature. If you prefer a sit-down breakfast of either pancakes or eggs, Erika prepares a very delicious personal breakfast for you. Depending on time of eating breakfast, you might be eating by yourselves or combined with the other guests. While eating breakfast during our stay, we enjoyed chatting with two other couples about where they were from or what they did at night while staying at Abbey’s. Overall, we had a marvelous stay at Abbey's Lantern Hill Inn. Erika was an absolute amazing host and we had a great time. Abbey's Inn is simply beautiful and a very convenient location to many things!! This was our first "Bed and Breakfast" stay together and we cannot wait to come back here!!

Wonderful Weekend

5 on February 13, 2015

After reading the reviews for Abbey’s Lantern Inn, we decided to give it a try. We stayed over Saturday and Sunday in the Southwest room, which I chose because of the fireplace and Jacuzzi tub. The room is decorated in a southwestern motif and feels soft and comforting. Abbey’s is a lovely B&B, very warm and relaxing. We drove up from New Jersey and the trip took about 2 ½ hours door to door. It was also nice to have lots of snow on the ground, which was very picturesque. Our hostess (and Innkeeper) Erica went out of her way to make us feel welcome. Anything I asked for, she promptly provided, which I appreciated very much. Breakfast at Abbey’s is excellent. Erica prepares each guest’s breakfast made to order, not a buffet, but gives the guests a choice of breakfast foods and then prepares them individually. We were able to chat with some of the other guests which made breakfast more enjoyable. Another plus for Abbey’s is the location. It is only 3 miles from Foxwoods, 15 minutes from Mohegan Sun and about 20 minutes from Mystic. We were able to spend time at the Mystic Aquarium and shop at Olde Mystic Village before driving to Mystic for lunch. All in all, our experience at Abbey’s was well worth the trip. I would highly recommend it to everyone.

If you're in the Mystic area....stay here!!

5 on November 04, 2014

I am so glad I found Abbey's Lantern for a recent stay in the Mystic area. It could not have been more perfect. The room (Cadillac) was spacious, masses of storage space, efficient, comfortable and welcoming along with a beautiful veranda and spacious bathroom with everything you could possibly want. When you add on to this the lovely dining area, breakfast and amenities you're all set for the day in the most beautiful place. But the best aspect is the innkeeper, Erika, who is warm, friendly, enthusiastic and provides great service but isn't intrusive or overbearing in any way. Her advice on where to visit locally was impeccable and I loved the Inn's green orientation. Go ahead and!!

An amazing One year Anniversary

5 on October 27, 2014

My Wife and I wanted to do some just for us, peaceful, low key for our one year Anniversary. I am originally from CT but live in New Hampshire with my wife. I did a search on B&Bs in CT, we were going to be down there for a family wedding as well. I found Abbey's Lantern Hill Inn with the search and fell in love with the room setups. One in particular was Southwest room. I liked the style and knew my wife and I would enjoy a nice fireplace in the room with the beautiful fall weather. Everything was a surprise so my wife did not know anything about the place. Once we arrived, she fell in love as I did. She loved the room and the setting around the whole house. Erika - the Innkeeper was absolutely amazing! She was very nice and helpful with our stay. The first night we were there, we wanted to go out somewhere nice in the Mystic area and Erika recommended a couple of places and explained how to get to them. Her recommendation was perfect! We loved the food and atmosphere, Erika was right on the money for that. We even saw her there while we waited for our table. The morning before we left, Erika cooked us breakfast which was excellent! If we lived close I would ask her to make my breakfast every morning. Right before we left, we had thanked Erika over and over for a lovely time. We stated to Erika, and will stand by this statement that we loved it so much, that we are going to make her Inn our one year place every time.. that's how much we loved it!! THANK YOU Erika!!!!

No Better Place

5 on October 21, 2014

Our visit to Abbey's was one of the best places we have ever stayed. Our two puppies (and us of course) LOVED, I mean LOVED the Cottage and felt right at home. Everything was very clean and organized, the food was delicious, and the enitre inn is just amazing. The grounds are beautiful with a very serene atmosphere with cool trails to take the pups for walks. The owner Erica and her staff were very welcoming and even had a jar of treats and doggie accessories waiting for us when we arrived. Going to this area in the fall is so special because the foliage is breathtaking and there are plenty of activities around the inn (Mystic Seaport, Village, casinos, water sports etc). My family will be returning next fall. From an exectuive with a stressful job who just needed to relax and unwind I couldn't have picked a better location. Thank you Abbey's for our perfect weekend getaway. xoxoxo

Serenity, Relaxation, and Quiet, surrounded by woodlands make for the prefect vacation getaway!

5 on September 02, 2014

Abbey’s Lantern Hill Inn is a wonderful Bed and Breakfast, located in Ledyard, Ct. The Inn is surrounded by woodlands. There is a wonderful outside area where you can use to grill, relax in a hammock and in the evening you can even light a fire in the outside fire pit and enjoy the peace and quiet. There are 6 rooms at Abbey’s some with wood burning fireplace and Jacuzzi tubs. There is even a Cottage that is pet friendly for those that may be traveling with a pet. The innkeeper Erika at Abbey’s Lantern Hill Inn boasts genuine hospitality, along with superior service and comfort, all in a beautiful setting. The Inn is very quiet and serene, with most rooms having a private porch with table, chairs and an umbrella to sit outside and enjoy the quiet. This charming romantic Bed and Breakfast is the perfect choice for getaways and vacations in Ledyard Ct. Erika, will provided you with information on local activities and guide you on things to see and do around the area. From the time you walk through the door and are greeted by the wonderful friendly and caring innkeeper Erika, you will feel at home. On the weekend you are provided with a home-cooked breakfast and during the week you are provided with a continental breakfast. I highly recommend the French toast. There is also fruit, a selection of hot and cold cereal, yogurt, juice, coffee and tea. You will have that nice relaxing feeling, either sitting at the table in the breakfast area or during the nice weather taking it out on the porch. To help make you feel at home, you will find a fine selection of assorted teas, soda or a light snack at any time during the day. While staying you’re a short drive to Mystic, Ct. You can visit the Mystic Seaport or Aquarium and then shop in the Mystic Village. Abbey’s is also a short drive to Mohegan Sun. It is also in walking distance of Foxwoods Indian Museum and the Casino. If you stay in the Fall a must visit is the Clyde’s Cider Mill

Amazing, Relaxing, Beautiful B&B!!

5 on August 05, 2014

A day after my husband and I got married a few weekends ago, we decided to take a "puppymoon," since our dog had to be boarded at daycare for the night for our wedding on Saturday night and since I'm starting law school in a week, we decided to wait until December to go on our full honeymoon. I researched dog-friendly bed and breakfasts and hotels in dog-friendly areas and Mystic kept coming up (I'd been there on a school trip as a kid to the seaport). Both Mystic itself and Abbey's Lantern Hill Inn looked SO dog-friendly and I couldn't get over how cute and quaint Abbey's looked! I booked it ASAP and let me tell you - it did NOT disappoint!! Sometimes it's hard to tell how things will look from pictures but believe it or not the photos don't even do Abbey's justice for it's beauty and sweetness! We stayed in the Cottage (the only dog friendly room - although the other rooms looked gorgeous as well!) and everything was perfect! It was my first time at a B&B and let me tell you I will definitely be coming back to B&Bs in generally and CERTAINLY back to Abbey's!! Erika, the owner, is quite possibly the sweetest, most accommodating person you'll ever meet. She helped us with everything we needed with a big smile, showing us the special dog welcome treats, bowl and "bathroom bags." She took time to take us through maps of Mystic and Ledyard and to make recommendations for great food where puppies are allowed to join! We even got complimentary tickets to an attraction (we chose the Seaport) because of the off-nights we stayed (Monday - Wednesday). What an extra treat! Our pup had an amazing time - so did we! The bed was oh-so comfortable, I fell asleep immediately for a nap when we got there! The decor is gorgeous and the back patio (fenced in for puppies!) was great! My review is too long - please check out my review on TripAdvisor for more of the lovely things I have to say about Abbey's!

Great place to stay with pets

4.8 on May 20, 2014

We had a great weekend at Abbeys. Loved the cottage and enjoyed being able to have our two dogs along with us. Great big yard for them to run in. The Inn was well kept and beautifully landscaped. Mystic was easy to get to from the Inn and Erika made great suggestions of places to visit and eat. Will definitely stay here again.
