“The Best B&B we have ever stayed in”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

This place is first class all the way. We stayed in the corner room and it was fantastic. With the high ceilings, beautiful crown molding, large windows, exquisite furnishings, heated floor and heated towel rack in the bathroom, large walk in shower with gorgeous tile, comfortable bed, this place is not your average bed and breakfast. And what a bubbly and gracious host Mia is. She is truly delightful. Look no further, this is THE PLACE!!!

Room Tip: There is no bad room in this place, only fantastic and more fantastic.

By far the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in. The decor and cleanliness of the place is only exceeded by the perfect hosting skills of Mia who makes you feel so special.
We stayed in the Garden suite which was beautiful.
Thanks Mia.

I'm grateful that I've traveled all over the world--and literally have stayed in hundreds of hotels and bed & breakfasts. I was SO DELIGHTED with my stay at the Boardman House, I just had to write a review!!!! Of all the places that I have stayed, the Boardman House, by far, was one of the most welcoming and special places I've ever been to! Not only are the rooms gorgeous (loved the heated bathroom floors!) but also the host, Mia, is so gracious and thoughtful, it is like you are staying at a dear friends home, where her #1 goal is to make sure you are happy and delighted! The breakfasts: delicious, the decor: magnificent, and the host: spectacular. What a winning combination that made my travels a wonderful memory. Do yourself a favor and stay at the Boardman House!

The Garden Room was the perfect spot for us to celebrate our anniversary! We had a private entrance with a lovely porch and view of the back yard/garden. The entire house is immaculate and beautifully decorated. Bed was soft and cozy, yet firm enough to please us both. We slept so well we overslept! We felt spoiled by the heat light in the bathroom and the heated towel rack. We were bowled over by the warmth and charm of the house and Mia our hostess! We felt like old friends returning to visit on our first trip. One stay at Boardman House will make you long to return soon.

Room Tip: We stayed in The Garden Room but they are all beautiful.

We stayed here for two nights in September 2011 and enjoyed the thoroughly restored Boardman house with its exquisitely furnished rooms. The innkeepers, Mia and André made us feel very much at home. Everything was neat and clean and Mia served a healthy and delicious breakfast. The house is located near the Goodspeed Opera House and is a great starting point for tours around Connecticut River and the coast. We can fully recommend this B&B house.

at this absolutely charming, well maintained B&B, the owners have done the most magnificent job of bringing this lovely house back to life...everything done with such taste, regard to detail and careful consideration during restoration. We simply loved it! Our room was on the ground floor, very roomy, colors lovely, bath modern and well appointed..and bedding and fabrics well chosen. There is a welcoming porch right off the room, where one can sit , enjoy the backyard and relax in comfy chairs. Mia welcomed us so warmly, offered suggestions for places to eat and things to do....we felt immediately at home and took her up on everything, The River Tavern in Chester was a winner! Breakfast the next morning was perfection, eggs cooked to your order, wonderful breads, jams and fruit...honestly, it has been a long time since we have experienced such high quality in a B&B experience. Please don't miss this one if you are driving along Connecticut's river valley!

Room Tip: We loved the towns of Chester and Essex...took the back roads and enjoyed beautiful scenery and buco...
