My wife and I absolutely loved our stay at the Inn at Stonington. The inn is located in a small little new england village located on a penninsula right next to the water. Beautiful views and very relaxing. The staff were very friendly and socialable. Inn was clean and had a roomy feeling. Had a nice time chatting with the other guest during the inn's complimentary wine and cheese. We've read earlier reviews about the inn's "subpar" complimentary continental breakfast, but what we experienced was actually pretty decent. They offered coffee, juice, yogurt, cereal/granola, slices of cranberry and pistachio bread (very tasty), toast and a shared copy of the Times. What we enjoyed best were the nice modern rooms, free wireless internet access and the fireplace in our room. We visited for a long weekend during the winter. During the day we walked stonington and visited nearby Mystic (seaport museam, mystic village, downtown, restaurants). At night we cozied up next to the fireplace and watched netflix and dvd's we brought with us on our laptop (room had a tv, but I don't believe I saw a dvd player. I figured I would bring my laptop for internet and dvd capability just in case). There are also a bunch of good restaurants within walking distance. Water Street Cafe and Noah's had good food. We also had a really good experience at Theresa's Culinary Creations (looks like a gelato shop, but is also a deli and bakery that has really good breads and custom sandwiches). When we visited Noah's for dinner on Saturday night, they had live Celtic music playing in the corner.
We really enjoyed our visit and will most likely be returning during the spring/summer. Best of all, the drive was only about 2-2.5 hours from NYC. A great place to get away somewhere quiet for a long weekend.
