A rustic 250 year old farmhouse 16 miles from Mohegan Sun, 11 miles from Foxwoods and 1 mile to Mystic. One comes here for the outstanding personal service from Kay and Ted. As hosts they were warm, welcoming and helpful. They even let us use their kitchen to prepare the oysters that we had bought. Ted is usually in overalls constantly fixing the home and maintaining the grounds. Kay will make you made to order breakfasts and put out afternoon refreshments. She is readily available with maps and friendly advice about area restaurants and excursions. Very "Newhart".
The B&B is not so much dirty as it is close to nature. Yes, we did have leaves blow in from our private entrance when opening and closing the door and the carpet of our room was a little worse for wear, but the bathroom was clean (though outdated) and had unlimited hot water with great shower pressure and we got a very peaceful and quiet nights sleep in our King bed in front of a gas fireplace. The Wi-Fi is very speedy and we had full cable. The common rooms are interesting with a huge, old cooking fireplace, games, magazines and stocked bookshelves. Think sunday afternoon, Scottish farmhouse cozy.
When coming to the casinos or Mystic for the weekend you will save a bundle and be able to incorporate some romance and nature into your trip. Don't forget to ask Kay about her shortbread!
