A tribute to Connecticut’s gilded age, the historic Boardman Mansion exudes glamour and grandeur.
European crystal chandeliers, Persian rugs, and hand-carved marble fireplaces, create a setting of gracious hospitality, further enhanced by luxurious amenities – just a short stroll from Goodspeed Opera House with its world-class musicals and dining by the river.
Norman S. Boardman, a wealthy silversmith and manufacturer of pewter, built the expansive and ornate home in the Second Empire style at what was at the time known as 8 Norwich Avenue.
Following its purchase, this New England Mansion underwent an extensive renovation that preserved the home’s magnificent architectural
features, including ceiling medallions, moldings, original floors and staircases, while seamlessly integrating modern conveniences and luxurious bathrooms in order to transform the mansion into a one-of-a-kind historic inn experience.

What Our Guests Say:
…Completing the memorable short weekend was an evening at the Goodspeed Theatre seeing a musical production and dinner at a local restaurant, literally steps from the Inn. All in all, a fantastic quick romantic getaway. I highly recommend the Inn and location.
