What a lovely place this is. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with the sweet smell of chocolate chip peanut butter cookies baking in the oven. We were shown where we could always find coffee, tea, hot water, cold sodas, bottled water and small snacks in the gathering room. Our room on the 2nd floor had views of the harbor. There were two beds, so if we had wanted to sleep three we could have. Visiting our college daughter though, we didn't use the extra bed. It made the room only just a tiny bit cramped. The bathroom was clean, views out it's window also.
Breakfast was served in the communal dining room and was delicious. My husband can't eat dairy, so instead of the wonderful frittatta they were serving, the hostess made him scrambled eggs. The owner came in and checked in on every table to ask what we'd seen, offer tips on the area and generally be hospitable. He was talkative and friendly, but not in the least overbearing.
From here we visited our daughter at Connecticut College, went to the famous Mystic Pizza, wandered through some waterfront beach paths and thoroughly enjoyed it.
It's also very convenient to the ferry going to Orient Point Long Island, so many more destinations possible.
I'm sure we'll stay here again next time we come to visit.
