This is a lovely B&B in a great location in Mystic. The owner, Josephine, is attentive to every need and detail. The rooms are fresh and spotless. We stayed in the rose room. It is small but ample as a bedroom, and you have use of the parlor, porch and gazebo to lounge or read. You could hear footsteps in the hall (wood floor) but otherwise will not be disturbed by neighbors. (There are only 3 rooms up, one down.) Breakfast is delicious and fresh-prepared each morning. We had Belgian waffles one day, omelets the next day and fritatas the third, and all were excellent. Breakfast is served on the gazebo, weather permitting, which has a lovely (partial) view of the Mystic River in a very quiet setting. There is coffee, tea and treats such as home baked cookies throughout the day. There is also complimentary sherry in the dining room (Savory & James - excellent choice!) and brandy with sniffers in the room. The location is perfect as it is not on any high traffic street but right in a quiet residential neighborhood. Yet, it is easy walking distance to downtown Mystic, the draw bridge and many restaurants, and an easy walk to Mystic Seaport. It is possibly walkable (1.7 mi.) to the Aquarium and Olde Mistik Village.
