Love Mystic

4.8 on September 18, 2017

Our first night from Long Island and it was wonderful. Excellent layout. Room was spacious and just like home. Very comfortable and inviting. Great location for that morning walk before breakfast and close to everything. Breakfast was wonderful and conversations with owner and staff were memorable And we can't wait to visit again...,

The Mermaid Inn truly lived up to pictures posted

We stayed for 3 nights at the Mermaid Inn and had a perfect experience. The grounds are as beautiful and well groomed as the pictures indicate. Our room and bathroom were very clean and felt private. My husband and I are tall people (6.5 and 6') and usually require a king bed. We were concerned that the bed in our room was 2 twins pushed together to make a king, but it was so well padded and comfortable that we would never had known. We even took a short nap together one afternoon...a rare occasion for us! The breakfasts were delicious and mostly organic, and served on the beautiful decking...which even had a bit of a water view. Josephine couldn't have been more gracious and gave us a sweet little parting baggie with waters and apples etc for the ride home. We will definitely stay at the Mermaid Inn again if we have another occasion to visit Mystic, the casinos, or anyplace nearby Thank you Josephine. (PS...I rarely leave ratings but this place truly deserves the praise.)

A Lovely Stay

Had the best 25th Anniversary weekend at Mermaid Inn. It was our 1st bed and breakfast and we both loved and enjoyed every minute. Josephine was wonderful. I sent her an email that we may arrive earlier than check-in time and was told we can still park in back parking lot after 12 no problem. Well when we arrived early she had our room ready and was very helpful as to where we should go and gave us recommendations to eat dinner that night. It was awesome. The following morning we had the best breakfast made by Josephine. You MUST try the lobster quiche if you love lobster..It was beyond delicious. I would HIGHLY recommend staying here. Everything was perfect and the property and rooms were very clean and fresh. Thank you again to Josephine for your superb hospitality. We enjoyed our anniversary weekend to the fullest....Tammy & Phil

We loved our stay at the Mermaid. If you want to visit southeastern Connecticut, this is the inn to choose!

A must for a getaway!

The B & B is exquisite! The inn was immaculate, cozy, beautiful and the food, snacks and "extras" were perfect. Josephine and the inn are fantastic. The extra bonus is it is so close to all the water, sights, eateries and shops.

Charming Getaway

Mermaid Inn is exceptional place to stay. Each room is uniquely decorated and has a cozy feel. The breakfasts & snacks are home cooked & delicious! The inn has a perfect location of being in walking distance to the downtown areas shops & restaurants. Once you stay here you will not want to stay anywhere else!

A delightful stay in Mystic

The Mermaid Inn is the B&B you dream of when you book a stay. It is immaculately clean, well-appointed, comfortable, with many "extras" as amenities. Breakfast is a treat every morning. Snacks and drinks available 24/7.

Our Treasured Gift of a Weekend Away!!!

5 on July 11, 2011

We have just returned from out stay at the Mermaid Inn and it was TREMENDOUS!!! Ww have lived in Connecticut all our lives and have never stayed in or experienced Mystic like we this this weekend... We arrived at the Inn and there was a note from Josephine (the owner) letting is know where our rom was and to make ourselves at home and to call her cell phone if we had any questions or problems. Our room was beautiful, comfortable and very charming. Oh yea, the breakfast each day was unbelieveable, 3 courses of the most amazingly delicious and unique food. As other visitors have stated, it is in a great location withing walking distance to downtown Mystic and also the seaport. We WILL be visiting again and again and again and providing other family members with a gift to the Inn... Thanks Josephine!!!!

Practically Perfect In every Way

Having just returned today from my charming trip to Mystic Seaport, i need to make it quite clear how lovely this B&B is... and im pretty picky, i love b&bs.. the memory is still alive and well in the freshly baked oatmeal chocolate chip cookie i'm devouring right now, which the innkeeper, Josephine, gave me before i left as a road snack.(when does that ever happen?!) She manages to run a quaint, pretty inn in a beautiful home, and serve as full time gourmet chef/baker at the same time. The Inn itself is located only blocks away from all the shops and restaurants, so we walked everywhere with ease... The room was appointed beautifully with one-of-a-kind murals , flat screen tv which didn't interfere with the charm, and a pristine modern bathroom. But oooooooh the breakfasts!!! i am a breakfast fiend, and just the granola that this kitchen- maven makes, is reason enough to go back for. Three course breakfasts which feature entrees like cranberry bog french toast were just amazing... But then as if that's not hospitable enough, you can be sure to find some kind of freshly baked good out for the afternoon to help yourself to, as you saunter by.. So you take a cookie and go sit out on the porch swing and enjoy Mystic ... It's like being in a cozy grandmas home, yet your privacy is respected fully, and Josephine is happy to help with anything you might need... i can't wait to go back.

The very best ever!!

My stay at the Mermaid Inn was amazing.Absolutely beautiful rooms and immaculately maintained bathroom too.The cookies are to die for-but then you couldn't go back for more,so don't die-just go back!

Coziest and Most Romantic in Mystic!

My wife and I immediately fell in love with the Mermaid! Josephine and Jane provided exceedingly delightful and utterly discreet services. The room was very clean, beatifully decorated and layed out with chocolates and cognac, our favorites. The breakfast was to DIE FOR- we cannot wait to enjoy the roasted pear torte and french toast again. Home made oatmeal cookies and perfect popcorn awaited us after a night of wonderful dining and music. The Inn lies within walking distance of all the towns excellent restaurants and beautiful waterfront attractions. We plan to make this an annual stay!

Outstanding on Every Level

I travel a lot in my business. I have stayed at countless B&B's and The Mermaid Inn of Mystic is my favorite place to experience. The location is in very short walking distance to everything Mystic. The rooms are beautiful (hand painted whimsical mermaid murals) and decorated with much comfort and taste. Speaking of taste DO NOT MISS the 3 course gourmet breakfast. The hosts offer a choice of sweet or savory. When I arrived, on the table in the dining room were these to-die-for cookies. I have stayed there many times and each experience is unique and wonderful. Very friendly and personable.

Great visit!

We had a great weekend at the Mermaid Inn. The food was quite amazing- we were offered different choices for the meal and didn't have to be up at dawn for it. It was also very sweet to see all the little additions- coffee, tea and wine available all day, amazing cookies, in-room mini fridge (with water and soda), and evening snacks.

Outstanding Stay

Our weekend stay at Mermaid Inn of Mystic was simply fantastic. The room was clean and the service was excellent. It was just a very short walk to the downtown Mystic shops and water. Josephine the Inn keeper was attentive but gave us privacy. The food was amazing and she left snacks for us throughout our entire stay. We loved it and will be returning in the future.

Believe us, Stay HERE!

This is a charming, friendly, positively LOVELY B&B ideally located near all the Mystic sites. Beautfully appointed rooms with wonderfully indulgent extras such as flat screen tv, fluffy robes, a mini-fridge with beverages, chocolates & Courvoisier. A welcoming, relaxing environment with cookies, tea coffee, beverages and wonderful hosts. And wow can they cook! The most plentiful & delicious breakfast you could ask for(we ate for 1 hour). We would absolutely stay again.

A cozy retreat for our New Year's weekend

5 on January 04, 2011

The innkeeper, Josephine, pampered us at every turn - with the best-ever homemade cookies, pie and popcorn for late night munchies, cognac and chocolates in the room - and for our last breakfast, a special lobster quiche! We were charmed by the inn and the people and the town - we walked everywhere - and hated to leave. The Mermaid Inn is a find! We will definitely be back.
