We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Mystic than the Whaler's Inn. For close to 20 years we've been staying at the Inn at least once a year, but usually more. We started staying in the original part of the Inn and now try to stay in the Hoxie House where the rooms have fireplaces and Jacuzzi's. Number 64 is our favorite with corner windows and great views of the town and river. What brings us back year after year? It could be the location, what is better than getting up in the morning, grabbing a cup of coffee, strolling over to the river walk to relax while sitting and watching the fishermen, birds and the boats go by? Maybe it's the continental breakfast that always has something for everyone. Maybe it's the comfortable accommodations, spotless rooms and lovely decorating. Would it be stepping out of the Inn and being able to walk right into town to enjoy the special shops and restaurants, take the river taxi to the Seaport, or grab an ice cream cone just steps away? Perhaps it's parking the car and leaving it in the lot because most things are within walking distance. Or maybe it's our favorite thing, the staff who are always welcoming, thoughtful and caring. Although we go every year with our best friends for Memorial Day weekend and the best parade ever; our favorite time of the year is the Christmas Season. Maybe you will get lucky, like we did one year, to be caught in a blizzard! The roads were closed, but at the Whaler's Inn that's no problem. We bundled up and scooted downtown through the wind and snow for a lobster roll and soup at the local Irish pub, the only restaurant brave enough to stay open. Then we stopped at the candy store (another brave store owner) to stock up on sweets to enjoy in Room 64 while sitting by the fire. At evenings end we stood looking out the window at the decorated Christmas Tree in the green by the river walk and out toward Main Street lit with its holiday lights watching as the town slowly went to sleep under a blanket of snow. Nope, no other place will do when staying in Mystic.
