The Inns and B&Bs of Mystic Connecticut provide an intimate experience

When a lodging is called an inn or bed-and-breakfast, you can usually count on a smaller and more home-like dwelling, with a strong element of graciousness, quiet elegance, and upscale hospitality. Many inns in the Mystic region of eastern Connecticut were built in the 18th and 19th centuries and are furnished with antiques or reproductions that surround visitors with the sense of earlier eras. CT inns highlight their locations and traditions, such at some of the waterfront inns of the Mystic region. Often inns also offer fine dining in quiet, history-rich surroundings.

History and hospitality are both celebrated at this lovely seaport inn

Modern amenities in a setting that celebrates history are the hallmarks of the Griswold Inn, a gem of an inn in the historic seaport village of Essex. “The Gris,” as it is fondly called, which opened in 1776, is one of the country’s oldest continuously operated inns. It features sophisticated cuisine served in historic dining rooms, an extensive and award-winning wine list, an impressive collection of marine art and illustrations and 34 exquisite rooms, each individually decorated and furnished with antiques, period reproductions and super-comfortable Leonard’s Beds. The inn is tucked onto Main Street, steps from unique shops, galleries and Essex Harbor. (Check the inn’s website for the latest information on openings and updates on health and safety regulations and protocols.)

Ask about special packages, including a Perfect Together package with champagne, truffles and mimosas.

Delicious dining, comfortable rooms and suites, perfect location make historic inn a must for travelers

Start your vacation in Mystic with a hearty breakfast at The Whaler’s Inn’s on-site restaurant, The Shipwright’s Daughter. Then head out to the Mystic Aquarium (the one with the belugas), the Seaport Museum to visit a fully equipped whaleboat, the Tree Trails adventure park or nature center. Go hiking, sailing or go shopping in Olde Mistick Village, then head back to your roomy suite, perhaps with a fireplace, air-jet soaking tub and Mystic River views. Afternoons enjoy a hot cup and freshly baked cookies at Scrimshaw, the new pop-up coffee lounge, and later come back for superb dining with a menu that changes daily.
