I'm a townie that sought a room during recent storm and power outage. Fortunately my power was restored sooner than expected so I did not actually stay, BUT.. The owner went out of his way to accomidate me on short notice, and allowed me to cancel without a fee when my power was restored. This personal attention and hospitality is rare today. If you are coming from out of town, this spot is perfect! you are in walking distance to Old Saybrook's Main Street. If you have a bike rack on your car, load up the bikes! This Inn is in the middle of the 'beach loop' a destination for cyclists. you can enjoy a magically sceanic 5, 7 or 10 mile beach loop ride. Enjoy your visit.
