My husband & i stayed here last weekend, using a gift certificate. The rooms were just gorgeous & lovely decorated, with large closets & sitting areas.The view of the River was better than any thing else I've seen in a while, like moving wallpaper- watching the fishermen each am, catching their quotas.The breakfast room was nicely displayed with much more than the usual continental breakfast of coffee & a donut- eggs, cheese, fruit, home made muffins & bagels. Coffee & water are available , complimentary all day. We would just go across the hall & get a coffee & bring it back to the room.A fireplace was available in the sitting area, but it was a bit too warm already - the whirlpool was a delight. The Inn is located directly near the draw bridge, which opens frequently & the horn blows , so you can go see what type of boat is going by. As an aside- the drawbridge appears as if only a canoe can pass under it!
The restaurants & shoppes are all with in walking distance & we never had to move the car.The staff were most helpful & open to any questions.
Would definately go back & not stay any where else.Also, there are appears to a plethora of dogs in Mystic-all leashed & obedient- but we felt like we were missing something!! Dogs are in the stores etc. Maybe they rent them out for the day -like bicycles-just specify the breed!!!
