Bed & Breakfast Inns in Connecticut provide a cozy, B&B retreat

Bed & Breakfasts in Connecticut A 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.
