We were travelling through the Niantic area and we had heard so much about this Inn as it was rated 3-stars at AAA. It is a beautiful old house typical of the local Northeast region. IT IS IMMACULATE and tastefully decorated and well-kept. The pictures don't do it justice. The view, as you would expect, overlooks the Harbor and is spectacular at every angle at every time of the day. The atmosphere is "unplugged" (although they do have tv, dvd, wireless access) quaint, quiet, serene, hospitable and there is a fridge stocked with water, soft drinks, wine, ice 24 hours a day. After dinner there are cookies waiting on a platter in the lounge area. The rocking chairs on the porch were my favorite. The grounds are smaller than they are depicted but beatifully manicured. There is on-site parking. Breakfast was cold "continental" and truly not much better than the highway hotel continental breakfast we had the day before. Coffee is served to you and not help yourself. I thought one draw-back to the $250.00/night room rate. Afterall, check-in is at 3pm and check-out is at 11am (so that's a lot of money for less than 24 hours!) Also, there is no one to help with heavy bags up the stairs. (no elevator) and some rooms are three flights up! It is well worth it for a special memory or quiet "veg" evening but I found it lacking in value, overall. By the way, if you want a great dining experience nearby, check out Sunset Rib Co right over the bridge just a couple miles away on the other side of the harbor....
