We had a quick one night stay at the Boardman House, our expectations were high and they did not disappoint. The French Suite was spotless, well appointed, and the bed was fantastic.

Breakfast was excellent, and served in a beautiful dinning room!

This review is quite late...almost 9 months late. So if it's been nearly 9 months since we stayed at Boardman House, why am I writing this review?

The Boardman House has been our number one B&B recommendation to our friends and family. The quality of our suite, the warm hospitality, and the tranquility of the area were memorable. We have not found another B&B as beautiful nor as comfortable... having a comfortable mattress is always a concern because we have experienced ones where we found ourselves rolling to the center. After a restful sleep, don't pass on the breakfast. It is delicious and generous.

There is no reason to hesitate. If you are looking for an escape, the Boardman House Inn should be at the top of your list.

Room Tip: The suite. It has it's own entrance, porch for privacy, and spacious.

Our two night stay was perfect. The charm of this inn is felt from the moment you drive into the front area and you are greeted at the door by Mia, the innkeeper. The attention to detail is evident everywhere. If you are looking for a charming, romantic get away, this is your place.

From August 18th through August 21st, we had a wonderful trip to Connecticut and stayed at the Boardman House in East Haddam. We were in a suite, their largest. The rooms and bath were elegant, and the breakfasts were delicious. The Inn was quiet and peaceful.

We were so grateful that the couple who (after registering as only two people) attempted to check in with three underage children, were not able to do so.

We had a delightful romantic weekend and would definitely stay there again. Thanks again to our lovely hosts.

Room Tip: The suite was magnificent

Spent one night at Boardman last week. Warm welcome from Mia. Our room was well decorated, comfortable, impeccably clean. Bathroom modern, functional, nice towels. Breakfast was simple but delicious. We enjoyed chatting with an interesting array of other guests.

It is a lovely building, well managed, and short walk to Goodspeed. You will not find anything nicer in the area!

We will be back.
