The Boardman House is an award-winning historic Connecticut Bed and Breakfast but not the usual B&B where the main focus is on the culinary experience.
Our emphasis is on the stay and the atmosphere of the historic 1860 mansion with beautifully appointed air-conditioned guest rooms with plush down duvets, fine linens, period antiques, oriental rugs, heated marble bathroom floors and private or semi-private porches. It is a home away from home.
True to its original role as a private residence, the Boardman House has tried to maintain the intimacy and privacy of a home while embracing guests with genuine, warm and intuitive service making the guest feel as they were visiting a friend.
Nestled within a charming neighborhood in the East Haddam’s historic district, we offer the best of one of the country’s most beautiful areas – gracious hospitality, restaurants at walking distance by the river, and proximity to charming historic towns like Essex, Mystic and Old Saybrook, shops, boutiques and nightlife.
The Connecticut River Valley area offers big-city sophistication, along with the charm of the rural New England with its centuries of history and culture. You will be hard pressed to find a Connecticut bed and breakfast more conveniently located near many tourist attractions of Connecticut, like Mystic Seaport. It is the perfect base to explore New England.
Boardman House Bed and Breakfast is an exquisite example of Second Empire architecture, with perfect accommodations for a romantic weekend getaway or relaxing escape. A Connecticut bed and breakfast is a great lodging alternative to hotels in the Connecticut River Valley area.
Here you can relax in comfortable surroundings and enjoy a style of gracious living reminiscent of an earlier time.
“The Garden Room was perfection. The bedroom and sittig room were lovely, spacious and very comfortable. The porch was an added bonus. Sitting outside and reading in the quiet of the country was a pleasure.”
“The Boardman House B&B was delightful! From the moment of warm welcome until the final farewell, we felt like we were home. The house, itself, is restored to a tee, with taste and character. If we are ever in the area again, I will look forward to staying there!!”
“Do not tell anyone about this place because I always want to be able to stay here. I think one of the most beautiful Bed and Breakfast I have ever had the pleasure of staying in.”
