We recently stayed for one night in the Russell suite. We found the room to be spacious and full of charm. It is is an old home so floors slope giving the room colonial character. That being said, there is a lovely gas fireplace which though "modern" adds to the colonial ambiance. The Russell room was once used as a dance hall. We marveled at the old wall in the suite which could be raised to make the dance hall larger, or lowered (current position) to make two smaller rooms.The location is great, close to Stonington Borough and Mystic. The inn is just a couple of minutes from I-95 which makes traveling easy. Driving 30 minutes or less could put you in Olde Saybrook, New London or Groton for additional sightseeing. Jim and Sandra serve breakfast at 8:30AM or 9:30 AM and provide an ample and delicious variety of freshly prepared foods. A nice find.....glad we stayed there....hope to return again.
