Traveled to the area to have lunch on the Lady Katharine, and see an evening performance at Goodspeed with my mother. Everything was wonderful as we had booked at the Boardman House Inn. We had a beautiful room to rest in before the show and to spend the night before leaving the next morning. The Boardman is beautiful, our room was large, spotless, and very comfortable. It was on the first floor and a delicious breakfast was served in the gorgeous dining room, also on the first floor. Our room was suggested upon booking by the innkeeper as my mother can not walk up and down stairs. It was perfect! If you are traveling through the area, stay at the Boardman House Inn, it is very close to Gillette's Castle, the river boat, Goodspeed, Essex Steam Train and to wonderful restaurants. The innkeeper Mia, is a happy person and oversees that your visit meets and exceeds your expectations. Her french toast is delicious!

We recently had several terrific short stays at Boardman House. The Inn and its mostly 19th Century furnishings are full of character, as is Mia, the friendly Swedish owner. The place is immaculate and well-located near the Goodspeed Opera House, the bed was comfortable, and the breakfasts were wonderful. Each room has a charm all its own. We will definitely return.

Elegant B&B a short distance from Goodspeed Opera House. Lovely rooms, gracious staff. A very nice breakfast. A good base for exploring the Connecticut River valley. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in that area.

Amazing rooms with beyond comfortable beds. Mia is so welcoming and prepares each and every guest fresh homemade breakfast and serves it to them at a desired time. Good for families, friends, anyone who wants a cute place to stay in East Haddam.

Room Tip: All rooms are good

My husband and teenage son had a wonderful one night stay at Boardman House Inn. The hosting family was very nice and accommodating, especially since our flight was 2 hours delayed and we were late for arrival. We stayed in the two rooms in the back of the house. The Garden Room for my husband and me, and the French room for our son. It was a very nice set up, with both rooms having an exterior entrance. Sometimes, at a B&B, one can feel intrusive to a private family. With the separate entrance, we could come and go as we pleased without feeling like we were bothering anyone. The rooms were really well appointed, with modern bathrooms and very fast wifi. The decor was very traditional with lots of antiques and had a very cozy feel. The breakfast was simple, but delicious. The boys enjoyed the french toast. If we are in the area again, we will seek out the Boardman House Inn. Thanks to Mia for a very nice stay.
