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.

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!

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!!!

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!!!!
