From the time we arrived till the time we left, Josephine was a terrific host; She made sure we felt home and took care of us with a spontaneous kindness. very accomodating, she is a great cook and the room (mermaid room) is very charming. go there, stay, and enjoy!

We stayed at Mermaid Inn for the weekend an thoroughly enjoyed it. Josephine was flexible about our arrival time, and had fresh-baked cookies ready to greet us when we arrived. She had also decorated our room in celebration of my husband's birthday. The Inn is spotless, and the Blue Room was lovely. Josephine was present but unobtrusive throughout our stay. The location is wonderful- right near the water. We went for runs along the water and within a mile we passed Mystic seaport and many quaint shops and restaurants. We also visited Mohegan, which is about 30 minutes away. The only very small critique we had of the hospitality regards the menu. I don't eat white flour, sugar or white potatoes (I know, I'm a pain), but because it was my birthday weekend (as well as my husband's) he had particularly tried to find somewhere that could accommodate our dietary restrictions. Josephine said it was no problem, but really, the vast majority of what she served, I could not have. On the second day, neither of the breakfast options were workable for me and no alternative was available. No problem - I had yogurt, gluten free toast and fruit, more than enough- but I know my husband was a little disappointed that I ended up eating "around" the menu. Overall, we were absolutely thrilled and would be happy to return in the future :)

I love Mystic, and our stay at the Mermaid Inn truly made our trip even more delightful and memorable. The home has a wonderful, warm feel, - comfortable, clean, and nicely appointed. Our host, Josephine, was gracious and generous with her time and delicious culinary treats. And, she even gave us a delicious care package upon leaving. Nothing could have been nicer!

Room Tip: All the rooms are comfortable, private, and quiet.

The Mermaid Inn:
Amazing location steps from both South Street Seaport, downtown Mystic, and the Amtrak stop.
Wonderful breakfast that is delicious. The puff pastry was amazing.
Fresh popcorn and homemade baked cookies sitting in the kitchen for us to take our leisure along with coffee and tea.
Complimentary drinks in the room's refrigerator as well as some chocolates and Courvoisier.
A very gracious host who allowed us to borrow her own bicycles!
A very nice care package for our trip home.

Started off with sherry and delicious homemade cookies. Our room was on the main floor next to the breakfast room, but was wonderfully quiet. The bed was confortable, the bathroom immaculately clean and the breakfast was extraordiary. The pear puff pastry was to die for. When we returned in the evening, coffee, tea and a homemade apple tort desert were available with brandy. We sat in the living room and enjoyed the ambiance and books with our night cap. We had a wonderful stay and the care package Josephine made for us was a highlight for the drive.

We've stayed at least a dozen B&Bs now in New England and this is still the best! Bed was super comfy, afternoon tea delicious and breakfast truly yummy-the granola is sensational! Could not have been any better, thank you so much

We recently stayed in the Mermaid Inn in Mystic, CT, and it is the best B & B we ever visited. When we arrived, there was a fresh apple pie as well as homemade chocolate chip cookies sitting on the table in the dining area, just there for guests to eat. It was like that both days of our visit - so wonderful! On top of that, when we left, we were sent off with a bag containing 2 bottles of water, apples and more chocolate chip cookies. This B & B goes above and beyond to provide guests with a comfortable and memorable experience.

Room Tip: The Mermaid Room is right next to the dining area, which others have identified as a negative factor...
