True to its original role as a private residence, we have tried to maintain the intimacy and privacy of a home. One of the many charms is its small size and intimate environment. Most of our guests appreciate the privacy achieved by having the guest space completely separated from private and service areas.

The historic 1860 mansion offers beautifully appointed air-conditioned guest rooms. It is a home away from home with plush down duvets, fine linens, as well as antiques and oriental rugs. In addition, most of the rooms have heated marble bathroom floors and some have private or semi-private porches.

Nestled within a charming neighborhood in a historic district, we offer the best of one of the country’s most beautiful areas. Additionally, you will find proximity to charming historic towns like Old Saybrook, Mystic and Essex CT.

The area is a destination for all seasons. It offers big-city sophistication in addition to the charm of the rural New England with its centuries of history and culture.

Conveniently located near many tourist attractions and things to do in Connecticut, like Mystic Seaport. In fact, it is the perfect base to explore New England and one of the best romantic getaways in CT. A Connecticut bed and breakfast is great lodging alternatives to hotels.
