This was the last stop of our two week vacation to New England. This B&B was very comfortable and we felt right at home from the beginning of our one night stay (wished it was more). Josephine provided wonderful breakfasts and afternoon cookies. She even provided a parting goodie bag which proved very handy when we got slowed in NYC... More

The Mermaid Inn is an excellent place to stay if you're traveling to Mystic. My husband and I spent the weekend here, and our experience was nothing short of fabulous. The rooms, while on the small side, are so charming, beautifully decorated, and appointed with all the amenities than you could ever want or need. The house itself is gorgeous.... More

What a place when I first arrived I was so impressed with the setting of this Bed and breakfast. I was continually impressed hour after hour. The rooms were so clean and the owner couldn't do enough for us. The first night was so relaxing and we were greeted with cookies that were to die for. The next morning we... More

This review is hard for me because although my recent visit was nice, it was nothing as described by other reviewers. I was originally booked at another location, but changed to this B&B because of the reviews. My husband and I have stayed at approximately 30 B&Bs along the East Coast, so the rave reviews this got caught my attention.... More

Josephine is a wonderful hostess & cook. So nice to have two things to choose from for breakfast. Eating out on gazebo so pretty! You can walk into town & great restaurants close by. Josephine also has discount tickets to local attractions...all around wonderful 2-night stay.

Don't need to go into details they are all in the other reviews here. My wife and I had a fantastic 3-day stay the Mermaid Inn, everything was perfect. Would highly recommend. Now if only we could figure out the recipe for the challah almond french toast.....

Our stay at the Mermaid Inn couldnt have been better. The place is spotless. Josephine was most accomodating. The location is within walking distance to the downtown area, Mystic Seaport, Mystic Pizza, etc. There were fresh baked cookies and a pie left out each day to munch on. The breakfast was great. We would definitely stay there again when we... More

The rooms were spacious & clean, with comfortable beds, updated private bath, dish of chocolates, and bottles of cold water & soda in the mini fridge. Breakfast was served on the gazebo with wonderful homemade granola, creamy yogurt, fresh fruit, and a hot breakfast choice too. There were homemade cookies and/or pie out nightly with a bowl of popcorn for... More

...That you ate breakfast on a gazebo? ...That the view from the gazebo was of boats in the water? ...that you ate lobster with holandaisse sauce while sitting on the gazebo watching the boats? ...that you enjoyed all of this while using sterling silver flatware? Couple this with a kind and caring owner, who went above and beyond to make... More

We stayed at the Mermaid Inn for two days during our honeymoon and used it as a base to explore Mystic. Firstly, the B&B is absolutely wonderful - one of those that you think you'll never find in real life! With comfy beds and pillows, breathtaking surroundings and homebaked cookies! It's also easy walking distance from the amtrak (5 mins)... More
