Bed & Breakfast Inns in Connecticut provide a cozy, B&B retreatA visit to a bed and breakfast in Connecticut is a doorway to some of the most beautiful and romantic lodgings in this historic state. The Mystic area, for instance, has a group of sister B&Bs called the Bed and Breakfasts of the Mystic Coast, with on the water locations or inland B&Bs off of winding country roads. There’s even a B&B nestled in a lush vineyard, ideal for a night or two of romance.
Connecticut has deep roots in Colonial and Revolutionary history, and some of its bed and breakfasts date to the 1700s, including a mansion in Mystic built in 1771. Be assured that you’ll find all the modern amenities, since comfort is the middle name of any Connecticut B&B and inn. Many offer canopied bed, Wi-Fi, working fireplaces, porches or balconies, and panoramic views. Most are open year-round, for a family or romantic getaway in all seasons.

Fortify yourself with this inn’s hearty breakfast before exploring the coast
There’s a lot to see in and around scenic Westbrook, but before you head out from your spacious room at The Captain Stannard House, sit yourself down at the breakfast table and enjoy a fresh morning cobbler, homemade pear bread or lemon cloud pancakes with fresh blueberry sauce and thick-sliced bacon. Only then, after your two-course breakfast, should you take advantage of one of the inn’s many suggested itineraries, including everything from antique and boutique shopping to river excursions, fishing and hot-air ballooning. Come back to play a little pool, put together a jigsaw at the ongoing puzzle table, try your hand at the Baby Grand piano or just find a cozy nook to read the latest bestseller.
