We recently completed our 5th stay at the Steamboat Inn in Mystic. Each time is pleasure, and each time we seem to enjoy the Inn and the town more and more. Having stayed that many times now, we have become very familiar with many of the rooms, and from our experience there isn't a bad place in the whole building! It's an endearing and comfortable place, and now when we arrive at the Steamboat Inn, we feel like we've just come home. We always try to time our trip with Columbus Day weekend, when there's much to do and see around the area.
The Inn itself is located right on the Mystic River at the foot of the bridge, which means you get to see a lot of boat traffic and witness the raising and lowering of one of the most picturesque bridges in New England. There's an immense charm to the town, and there's an enormous history awaiting you along the Connecticut coast. A walk down the boardwalk is an inviting and relaxing experience!
The Inn couldn't be in a better location! All the shops and great restaurants are within a 3 block radius, an easy stroll from The Steamboat Inn. Shopping from store to store and browsing the art galleries and unique businesses in the area are worth the visit. But if you're looking for something more on the intellectual side of things, a visit to the Mystic Seaport is a must! Especially during Chowderfest! You can also make a day of visiting the shops in Old Mystic Village and visiting the aquarium.
Plan to visit Mystic-- and plan to stay at The Steamboat Inn. It'll be an experience you'll want to repeat again and again, as we have!
