Warm Hospitality in Charming New England Inn

5 on September 14, 2017

The inn was filled with New England charm, both inside and out. Pam and Marcus made us feel right at home. They were warm, gracious hosts and very knowledgeable about the many things to do in the area. Our room was clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. We definitely look forward to staying with Pam and Marcus again.

Wonderful Hospitality

No bedroom key locks, possible sharing of bathroom, make your own bed, parking on busy street (if you can get it), no on-site breakfast (no food), no hair dryer, no foyer lights if you come home in after dark (house pitch black), minimum innkeeper presence, no Connecticut tax if you pay in cash.

Always the perfect stay!

My family and I travel to New London frequently to visit our son. We stayed at several hotels and rented homes before finding the Coastal Cottage Inn. Pam and the Captain are always accommodating and welcome guests as if they are arriving home each time. The Inn is absolutely lovely and breakfast is amazing!

Charming B&B in New London

My first stay at a B&B and I will definitely stay here again on my next visit! Pam and Marcus are wonderful hosts and provided information about the area along with its history. They have a beautiful home and make you feel at home.

My husband and I stayed at Coastal Cottage July 11th. What a beautiful home!! from the minute you turn the key. The stain glass window at the top of the stairs tells you the history and the fine architecture of this home. Each room has something special tranquil and soothing to offer.. Pam and Marcus are not only lovely innkeepers but have filled this home with high end furnished pieces and momentous. A true "GEM FROM THE PAST". Breakfast at Sweeties DELICIOUS!! Thanks guys, Mabel and Ray :)

Hidden Gem!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for our one year anniversary and I have to say that our experience at this B&B has been amazing! Pam and the Captain are very welcoming hosts. They made us feel right at home in their place. The location is truly AWESOME central to all the major sights and attractions. 15 mins to mystic seaport, an hr to Rhode Island and Boston! Really cute town, and the FOOD in this town is mostly mom and pops places which we like! I highly recommend this place if you're looking to feel right at home. Thanks for having us Pam and Captain!

What a lovely home !

My fiance and i planned a little trip to mystic to celebrate our 10 years together . We have always preferred bed and breakfasts over hotels. They are always much cleaner and just a more pleasant stay altogether. Coastal cottage inn was very very clean and both Pam and her husband are lovely people. Felt right at home. We are early risers and it was wonderful to have coffee waiting for us downstairs. The house is filled with beautiful decoration . Thanks so much for opening up your home to us ! Betta and Jermaine .

Pam and Marcus provided us a relaxing weekend

Pam and Marcus provided us with the hospitality one would give to family. They accommodated our specific needs and were sociable yet respectful of our privacy. The bed was extremely comfortable and the living and eating areas were pleasant and had elegant decor.

Even Eugene O'Neill would have been happy to be in New London if he had stayed here with Pam Collins & Captain Marcus Fisk! These are Innkeepers extraordinaire, they go 100% to be gracious hosts. And what a beautiful Victorian home (from the 1890's). Get Captain Fisk -- if you're lucky -- to tell you stories of the sea. He says there are some he can't even speak of, but maybe he will.
