As a world traveler this B&B is at the top of my list for an overall excellent experience. If you are looking for a true New England holiday, this is the place for you. My parents loved staying here and the owner was so nice and professional. On all my trips throughout Europe, the experience my family had at the...

I have traveled to 40 countries and the breakfast at this B&B is the best I have ever had. I am from Stonington, have never been here before, and was so shocked at how amazing it was. My mother in law, from Illinois, stayed here for over a week and loves it. If you are looking for a quality B&B...

The staff was great. There are fireplaces in each room. I felt very much at home. The Inn is very centrally located to every thing. Mike our host was fantastic...

Having planned a 2,00+ miles journey around New England, and Ohio, in May 2013, Old Mystic Inn was chosen for the first two nights stay. What a choice it proved to be! The Inn is steeped in history, yet provided us with all we needed for our stay. We were met on our arrival, by Chef Michael, the owner. Within...

We were there in May for two nights, staying in the Carriage House. Very cozy, clean and quiet. The field behind is excellent for bird watching. Michael is a great innkeeper, host and chef. Do believe everything you read about his breakfasts! We will be back! Sandy

My boyfriend and I did a little getaway for his birthday, and he found this B&B online. We researched on TripAdvisor, narrowed our search down, and choose this one because it was a great value. We were far from disappointed. The location is perfect-- just a few miles from all the fun that Mystic has to offer, including the Aquarium,...

This is an exceptional B&B! There are two buildings. The 1700s home is delightfully cozy. The rooms are themed around great literature and have fireplaces and beatiful quilts. The dining area is warm and the breakfast was fantastic. Michael is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and it shows. The newer building has larger rooms with gas fireplaces....

An alternative to your roadside hotels, this literary themed B&B is an excellent choice. The rooms are tastefully decorated in period furniture. Our bed was very comfortable. Mike Cardillo is an efficient and effective host, he suggested a wonderful restaurant and made the reservation for us there. The breakfast was a very tasty cinnamon french toast with fruit, beautifully presented....
