Weekend getaway

5 on July 11, 2017

Perfect getaway, so relaxing! The Inn is beautiful, full of country charm! The room was spotless! The Inn was completely booked yet it felt like we had the place to ourselves. Lots of privacy. Easy access to many local attractions. Would highly recommend for a wonderful retreat.


Great country inn

5 on April 22, 2017

We stayed at the Stonecroft Country Inn when we visited the Mystic area for several days. Both the inn and the grounds were very nice. It had a great country feel. Jim and Marcie were excellent hosts. They showed a personal interest in us and were helpful in describing the area and providing advice of things to see. They also served delicious breakfasts. The room was large for an 1800's house and the bed was very comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed this inn.

My boyfriend and I had a terrific stay at the Stonecroft Country Inn. The tranquil grounds, thoughtfully-appointed rooms, and warm hospitality of Jim and Marcie made for a wonderful experience. Especially enjoyed the breakfast quiche and using our room's jacuzzi tub and fireplace!


Weekend Quiet Getaway

Our stay at the Stonecroft was a memorable one. It was the perfect setting for a nice, quiet getaway, in a the quiet town of Mystic. The room was great and those sheets were unlike anything I've ever slept on! Service was very good. I could've used a bigger portion or even more options each morning for breakfast though. But overall we had a fantastic experience.


Cozy Relaxation.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Stonecroft and look forward to going again. The 1807 house is old but spotlessly clean, very comfortable and quiet, with superb linens. Loved having coffee and snacks available. Our hosts were so friendly and accommodating, breakfast was delicious. The only reason I didn't give five stars for dining is that my husband is a big breakfast eater so he would have liked more to eat! Otherwise it was perfect.

Weekend in Connecticut

4.2 on December 14, 2016

My husband and I stayed in the Stonecroft Room which was in the main house. The room was lovely and we enjoyed the wood burning fireplace. The only complaint we had about the room was that it was a bit chilly. The innkeepers were very friendly and accommodating and the breakfasts were delicious. We would stay here again when the weather gets warm but next time we would stay in the other building which was where our friends stayed. Their room was beautiful and had a jacuzzi and deck which we would definately enjoy in the warm weather. All in all it was a great weekend.


Anniversary weekend.....

4.6 on December 12, 2016

Choose the Newport Mansions Christmas package and got champagne on arrival for our anniversary - was apprehensive about the location but was ideal - little north of the hustle & bustle of Mystic village but so worth it - easy on/off the highway (5 minutes) - close to town, wineries and attractions - Staff/Owners Jim and Marcie were always available and helpful with any needs or directions - room was very comfortable, clean and quiet - only meal we enjoyed was breakfast the days we were there and whatever Marcie makes is wonderful (muffins, fresh fruit, quiche, bread pudding, etc... - other great things in the "barn" like snacks in the hall, great movie selection, books galore, beautiful grounds, maps of area, lots of parking - nothing negative to say about this place, you will not be disappointed Highly recommend and look forward to returning.


Always enjoy Stonecroft

I recently returned from an overnight at the Stonecroft Inn this past Saturday. This is one of the quietest, and prettiest places you ever want to see. Rooms are beautifully appointed and spotless.Stayed in the Noreaster room this time. Fireplace kept room toasty warm. Breakfast in the beautiful dining room was absolutely perfect. Had the chance to meet Jim (one half of innkeeper team), and found him to be a wonderful guy. Can't wait to return to Stonecroft!
