Dates of Stay: Oct 2nd – 12th 2014 We very much enjoyed our 10 day stay at Harbor Inn B&B this past October. We stayed in the Captain Clark house in room #14 Barque Eagle (worth every penny). I would best describe this B&B as an awesome boutique hotel. The room has the ambiance of a cozy seaside cabin setting on the Atlantic. Plenty of room with a setting area that includes a gas fireplace, pillow top king size bed (very comfy) and a large soaking tub bug enough for my wife to swim laps in every night. We wanted a NE location, so we could cover all of the surrounding states while catching the fall leaves changing. The Niantic CT location was perfect!!! We covered all of Connecticut and nearby Rhode Island to boot. We took the train into NYC from New Haven, CT, and another into Boston from New London, CT. Very easy traveling into the big cities all with no hassle driving in heavy traffic and not to mention expensive parking. Dave, Sue, and Pam are tremendous hosts and no detail goes overlooked throughout both buildings on property. There are walk out balconies with rocking chairs to overlook the onsite marina and harbor, this is a great place to enjoy your morning coffee. They all go out of their way every morning to help plan the many day trips that are less than an hour’s drive. A job well done to all the staff and the way you can easily see that they love what they do…KUDOS!!! All of their suggestions are spot on, including where to visit, where to eat, and what to see! We tried to cover them all and we were never disappointed. The grounds are immaculate with beautiful flowers bursting with blooms, all manicured and cut to perfection. My hats off to the groundskeepers…your efforts truly show throughout the entire property. James W.
Such a gem! Comfy and quaint, with a water view that greeted me in the morning. The inne had a homelike setting and Claude was so gracious and helpful. Linda cooked the most outstanding vege omelette was impressively hospitable herself. I feel so fortunate to have found this simple, but clean cozy B&B at such an amazing price!
The greeting was warm and welcoming. We were escorted to our room where the door was opened and beckoning. The room included a large bed and a leather loveseat in front of the working fireplace. In the evening you can stop at the common room to get sherry and cookies. Great for sipping infront of the fire. We overlooked the Mystic River which was quiet as it was December, it would be quite active in the Summer. Breakfast was delicious and the staff was extremely friendly. Because it has only 11 rooms it was very quiet and intimate. We rarely stay in hotels or Inns, but our experience at the Steamboat Inn has us already planning to go back!
Mary is an excellent hostess. She is warm and friendly, keeps a beatuifully appointed B&B, serves up a warm and hearty breakfast, and has great suggestions for making your stay more enjoyable.If you enjoy staying a small period farmhouse, this is your place!
This place was fabulous! Our room was clean, quiet and private! Having the private porch overlooking the marina was great! I only wish it had been warmer so we could have enjoyed it more. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, offering up places to eat, activities and more. We had a great time here and will definitely be back!
This was a great place to base our weekend in the mystic area! Off the beaten track enough to feel like a retreat, yet easy to get to everything! The in is lovely, the innkeepers are charming, and the rooms are spacious, clean and oozing with charm! A return destination for sure!
We have stayed( visited ) Stonecroft several times and have found it quiet, comfortable and welcoming , It is so centrally located neat mystic and all its attractions . Marcie and Jim are the perfect Innkeepers and so kind and welcoming . We can't wait to return !!!
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 book...now!!
Our Stay at Another Second Penney Inn was wonderful. The establishment was as charming as could be, and the friendly animals were an additional plus. The location was perfectly placed within minutes driving distance to Mystic and Stonington, yet set off enough on a wooded road to feel as if it was miles away from anything nearby. This was a very pleasant experience that I would recommend to anyone to anyone looking for a cozy place to stay.
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!!!!
We chose to stay for our visit to see our son at the Coast Guard Academy. The home is beautiful, very comfortable rooms. The breakfast is off-site at Sweeties, great breakfast and very personable. The owner is Johnson & Wales culinary trained. It was wonderful in the home, felt like we had the home to use tobe comfortable to order takeoutand have our son relax out of uniform. Be prepared with your own hairdry and travel size shampoo/conditioner. Feels like you are guest in a home rather then hotel.
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
We drove up and were nicely met by Ted. He offered us tea and cake, and showed us where the wine was. Our room was called "ADELAIDE" . We slept well and only found out the next morning that our room was rumored to be haunted! We really liked that our hosts sat and had breakfast with us. A very nice place to stay.
We stayed at the Inn October 9 - 13. Our stay was fabulous!! Dave & Sue and their staff do a wonderful job with every detail. We have already booked our next visit. I highly recommend Inn at Harbour Hill Marina.
Everything about this B & B - style, rooms, outside appearance was quintessential New England in the fall. Rooms were comfy. Breakfast was outstanding - Michael (Inn Keeper) is a trained chef & boy he didn't disappoint! Definitely would stay here again.
My husband and I had a great weekend. Had really good pasta at Pauls Pasta in Groton reccomended by gail. Enjoyed Foxwoods -8 min drive. Great hospitality Gail even sewed my blouse. Very cozy.. bring slippers ;-) ;-)
Spent two nights at this quaint old farmhouse near Mystic, CT. It was peaceful, cozy, and just what my husband and I needed. The hosts were extremely helpful with tips for places to go that were away from the crowds.
We chose the Inn and Lower Farm because we loved the idea of staying in an old farmhouse. In the pictures it looked cute and funky and we went for it. We weren't expecting a beautiful house set on stunning grounds. Out room was immaculate - wonderfully decorated and spotlessly clean - and the rest of the house was the same. The Keeping Room was like being in a museum, and the hosts made us feel like old friends. The breakfast we had the morning of our departure (we unfortunately only stayed one night) was the best we had on our whole trip. I'm still thinking about those gorgeous sausages and wonderfully light pancakes. Amazing, I can't recommend highly enough.
Stonecroft Country Inn was an amazing place to have our wedding. The owners were outstanding and worked with us beyond what we could have ever asked for. Everything we wanted was made possible and they granted us lots of freedom, where other venues in the area would not. This was the only venue in the area that didn’t have crazy restrictions, additional fees and unreasonable staff that didn’t work with the bride and grooms wishes. From the very first meeting, they were very professional and were only really concerned with what we wanted rather than telling us what we couldn’t do. Their attitude and customer service stayed consistent till the wedding weekend was over. I do recommend renting out the entire inn, it makes it way easier and it is such a better experience for all that are involved. Breakfast was available for all of our guests each morning which was convenient and another reason we liked staying at the Inn. It is a great place to stay the night before and get ready the day of, staying at the Inn after the wedding also made the entire weekend a lot less stressful. There are plenty of photo opportunities around the property; there was no reason to take pictures anywhere else but here. I cannot say anything negative about our wedding weekend with Stonecroft, it was truly everything we ever could have asked for. We wouldn’t have changed one thing about it and this place understands what logistically/professionally needs to happen to have one successful wedding.
My husband and I stayed at the Copper Beech Inn and it was the perfect setting. It was our first time to the New England area and the Innkeeper Pete Pajor gave us alot of tips on special places not mentioned on our itinerary. I like to also mention Sara who was extremely knowledgeable and helpful along with Ronnie help make our stay very pleasant. We had breakfast at the inn every morning which was cooked by Hemburto (Eddie) and everything was first class. We would definietly consider staying there again.
