We stayed the Boardman House for a pre-anniversay trip on April 19, 2015. Also spent the evening at the Good Speed Opera House seeing Guys and Dolls. The Garden Suite is "our room" as Mia calls it ( this is our 3rd trip and we will be back!!!). Mia is such a gracious hostess and everything is perfect!!! The room... More

My wife and I spent one evening at the Boardman House for our pre-anniversary and pre-baby celebration. Everything was perfect. The Inn is beautifully restored both inside and out, and decorated with fascinating antiques. We had the Corner Room, which was lovely. The bathroom was very luxurious, especially the heated floor which was very welcome in the middle of the... More

We stayed there during Thanksgiving and had a wonderful time! It's beautifully decorated, and the attention to detail is amazing. My husband and I loved it so much that we are planning on staying there everytime we visit our family in CT. Thank you Mia!

We stayed one night because we went to the Goodspeed Opera House to watch a musical. The Boardman House is a beautiful B&B. Our room was extremely comfortable. The bed was great and the heated bathroom floor made me feel at home since I have the floor of my bathroom heated. The Opera house and the Gelson restaurant are only... More

Stayed here last night after seeing Holiday Inn at The Goodspeed, a two minute walk. The Boardman room is lovely and the Inn itself has been beautifully renovated in keeping with its 1860 roots. We chatted with Mia, the owner, who was most gracious. Breakfast was great, fresh waffles. Very good free wi-fi. We hope to return.

We visited East Haddam to attend a musical produced by Goodspeed Opera House. After a search on Trip Advisor, we decided to book our one night at the Boardman House Inn. It did not disappoint! Mia was a gracious hostess and obviously loves her inn and home. Each room that we saw was meticulously restored to the proper time period... More

We were only able to stay one night, but we did enjoy our stay. The room was well appointed and Mia was fabulous. Breakfast was delicious and if ever here again, we will definitely return for another stay and chance to enjoy the porch.

My wife and I returned to the Boardman House again on September 25, 2014. The second time this year !! To our surprise, Mia had up-graded us to the Garden Suite. Our suite was very clean and tastefully decorated. Mia is such a wonderful host and very meticulous. Her french toast is a favorite and delicious! She makes us feel... More

The Boardman House is gloriously peaceful, set in a lovely garden. The bed linens and mattress in my room were luxuriously comfortable and the room was spotless. I have stayed here twice in the last few months, both times in the Garden Suite. Mia is very gracious and hospitable. Her recommendations were very helpful. The breakfast was excellent. The town...

My husband and I were back for our second stay at this beautiful inn. Mia is the perfect hostess and makes us feel welcome and comfortable in her gorgeous inn. We chose the Garden Suite this time and what a treat it was. We loved the back porch and enjoyed watching the hummingbirds come to feed. The close proximity to... More
