Connecticut Bed and Breakfast

Award Winning Connecticut Bed & Breakfast for Romantic Getaways in a Mansion. Walk to Restaurants by the River.

The historic bed and breakfast offers luxurious 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.

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.

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.
