My wife, our daughter and I stayed at the Mermaid Inn while we were exploring nearby Connecticut College. The house is beautifully decorated and our rooms were very comfortable. The breakfasts served in the gazebo overlooking the Mystic River were delicious and the scrumptious pastriies waiting in the dining room every evening had us skipping deserts when we went out to eat to make sure we could enjoy them.
Josephine is a delightful hostess and made us feel right at home. I am already looking forward to our next visit to Mystic so we can enoy her hospitality again. We have stayed at many Bed and Breakfasts throughout New England and the Mermaid Inn is definitely one of the nicest that we have found.
