My husband and I had a chance to get away for a few days. We thought our room was so beautiful. Mia is so friendly and helpful. The breakfast each morning was mouth watering and so yummy. We absolutely loved The Boardman House.

We stayed here recently and absolutely loved the Boardman House. Mia was a gracious and friendly host - her Belgian waffles, fresh fruit, and selection of coffee and tea was just perfect. The home was a lovely mix of both old and new, and our room was so comfortable that we really felt at home. Mia keeps the place spotless,... More

My wife and I stayed here for an anniversary trip and absolutely loved it. We were looking for a cute little new England bed-and-breakfast and this is exactly what we wanted. We did some research online and this has great reviews and after spending just one night there we understand every word of them. Mia was extremely helpful and very... More

Our second stay at this B&B one year later was as excellent as our first. Mia, our owner/hostess is very gracious and has an amazing attention to every detail to make the room and breakfast memorable. We come to the Goodspeed Opera House (built in 1886) for the musicals once or twice a year and discovered this warm, beautiful place... More

My wife and I spent 5 wonderful days at the Boardman House. Our room was the Garden Suite. The accommodations were excellent. Tastefully decorated, very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was completely redone with heated floors. We never ran out of hot water. Mia was a great hostess and her friendly demeanor was a pleasure. I... More

We made a brief stop in East Haddam for the night over the holiday weekend. Mia was extremely friendly and made us feel comfortable. The room is nicely appointed and perfectly cleaned and maintained. The heated bathroom floors and towel rack are such a nice feature. Beware if you visit the town on a Sunday night, do not wait until... More

If you have never stayed in an old Victorian home with 12 foot ceilings and 8 foot high windows, painstakingly renovated to as original a state as you can get (within modern constraints) in the rooms and common areas, combined with modern amenities where you want them (That would be in the baths). The grounds are well tended, and it... More

The Boardman House located in East Haddam, CT, is a small but beautifully restored Inn operated by Mia and her husband. My wife and I experienced personal yet unobtrusive attention throughout our stay. The delicious breakfast was served at the time of your choice. Our room (Corner Room) was small but very comfortable, we slept well. The beautiful bathroom was... More
