We found this by chance and what good luck that was. All the rooms are delightfully decorated with original paintings, prints or old photographs that show Mystic and/or ships and yachts, and the furniture is different in each of the 11 rooms. The hostess on duty could not have been more welcoming and helpful and I wish we could have stayed for longer than two nights. There is a nice cosy parlour on the second floor where newspapers are available and where sherry and cookies are available in the evenings; that is also where there is a buffet breakfast of cereals, fruit-juice, fruit salad, toast, muffins, plus scrambled eggs and other cooked items. There is free parking and the inn is located right by the water in the centre of town but away from the road. You can walk everywhere in Mystic from the Inn and it was beautiful to watch the light of the setting sun on the water and harbour in front of us. The nicest place I have ever stayed in the US (we are from the UK).
