About Boardman House Inn

The Boardman House is an elegant Connecticut bed and breakfast offering luxurious accommodations & gracious hospitality in the quaint New England riverfront village of East Haddam, CT just two hours from New York City and Boston and a short walk from Goodspeed Musicals, the Connecticut River and Restaurants.

An exquisite example of Second Empire architecture built 1860, perfect for a romantic weekend getaway or relaxing escape, with beautifully appointed air-conditioned rooms with plush down duvets, fine linens, period antiques, oriental rugs, heated marble bathroom floors and private porches. Boardman House is a great 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 Connecticut River Valley area offers big-city sophistication, along with the charm of the rural New England with its centuries of history and culture and conveniently located near many tourist attractions of Connecticut, and it is the perfect base to explore New England.

Home to spectacular scenery, East Haddam is considered by many to be a shining gem in the Connecticut shoreline and the Nature Conservancy has designated the lower Connecticut River Valley as one of the 40 “last great places on earth”.

The Boardman House is poised close to historic coastal towns like Essex, Mystic and Old Saybrook where you will find attractions, antiques, gourmet dining, art galleries, museums, sightseeing as well as shopping, including a number of world class outlet stores.

Alternately, there are beaches at Hammonassett to enjoy, hiking in the local state parks and biking. There are also several golf courses in the area and one of the most visited attractions in Connecticut – Gillette Castle – is just up the hill.

Do not rely solely on our word. Conde Nast Johanssens has recognized The Boardman House Inn as one of their “Recommended Properties” noting its “Comfortable Setting and Personal Touches”.” Please take a moment to read one of the glowing reviews from our beloved guests from all around the world.
