... and Bridgehampton was interesting. Very quaint little villages with big houses (ok, more like mansions and estates), with very high-priced shops, including the consignment shops. The best deals were found at a wonderfully large roadside local produce market where we picked up some Concorde grapes, jet star and honey crisp apples, cranberry beans, butternut squash, and a multitude of hot peppers including a cherry bomb (supposed to be VERY ...
... Next, footwear & clothing for 4 kinds of weather times 6 people. That's slippers, sandals, hiking boots, rain boots...times 6, gore tex jackets for rain, fleece for cool, and parkas for cold...times 6; hats for sun, hats for cold, zip-off hiking pants, socks, gloves, long underwear...you get the idea. Handled rectangular totes from the Container Store are keeping everyone's clothing neatly organized.

So, like clockwork Kim went and got the rental car, texted me he was on his way back. Myself and bags ( no nasty comments please) waiting at the curb. Here's the important part of the story....GPS wouldn't work so kim googled a route that had NO TOLLS. Took us 45 min to get out of NYC and on our way north to Woodbury commons...200 designer discount stores. We walked around NOT IMPRESSED. Kim got ...

On Sunday evening I had a spiritual direction meeting with the priest, and that didn't go so well. I won't go into it here, but suffice it to say it put a damper on my memories of this beautiful place. Sometimes Silence, God and nature can just say it better than any man I suppose. At least to my ears and heart.

... Seaport is a great place to tour for 3+ hours. Lots of history as they have recreated an 1827 working seaport complete with stores, houses and shipbuilding galore! Lots of boats to see as well. This is very well done and we really enjoyed it!

Historical Traveler Reviews Steamboat Inn Mystic
Stay here when in Mystic
Lovely room (called "Annie Wilcox"). Comfortable beds and cosy atmosphere. Highly recommended for couples seking a romantic hideaway in the otherwise disappointing Mystic. Refreshingly different from the one-size-fits-all chain hotels which are endemic in the US. Breakfast was basic but good. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The drawbridge hooter acts as an excellent alarm call!
Beautiful river views
We just spent a weekend at the Steamboat Inn and really enjoyed it.The views of the river are fantastic and the Inn is in a great location right in the middle of all attractions.The only draw back was we did not get much sleep
between the draw bridge going up and down and the boats docking in and out.But overall beautiful place to stay.
Charming, but could be better.
Nice place, great location, but when I stayed there recently,
not much help seemed to be around, girl at desk very hassled taking phone
reservations...and water did not seem to get too hot from the tap, even after running it for some time.
Breakfast could be better. Had trouble finding parking place in adjacent lot.
It filled up fast, especially in evenings. Mattress was also too hard!
A Great Place to Stay
Just got back from a jaunt through New England. We happened upon Mystic and decided to stay in town. After visiting a couple of other places, we settled on the Steamboat. What an great place. This Inn is one of our new favorite places. The rooms are excellent, though our DVD player didn't work. We weren't there to watch TV though, so it didn't matter too much. If you're traveling in CT or MA, this is a great place to stay. NYC is 2 hours away, Boston about the same. Highly recommended.
I took my boyfriend here as a surprise for his birthday...we arrived just ahead of the Noreaster on 1/28 and stayed thru Thursday... stayed in room #8 Kathleen....absolute heaven! HUGE bathroom with beautiful whirlpool for two...separate shower....king size bed...plenty of pillows...mattress a little too firm for our liking but that is the only complaint!!
Kate at the front desk was an absolute fantastic help....a coffeemaker for the room, fresh towels whenver needed....made our reservations at Bravo Bravo (decent) .... the room was spotless, the service excellent...the view beautiful.
I highly recommend the Steamboat for those who want a memorable stay in Mystic....
The Steamboat Inn clearly has the monopoly for "centrally located- on the water" appeal in all of Eastern Connecticut/Mystic. Once you arrive you can quickly take notice that primary attention will be shown to the older 35+, demanding, more well-to-do guests (we are proud to be none of those). My fiance and I stayed here for our five year dating anniversary. We stayed in the large and lived in Carolyn room which has a jaw-dropping 2 person whirlpool with magical views of the Harbor. Disappointment set in on our first night, when our Queen size bed collapsed after merely sitting on it (wood splinters at our feet) . It was nearly midnight and the Innkeeper and all were at home asleep, nowhere near the hotel to help this situation. We called the listed emergency number and we were told that nothing could be done for us and that we'd have to "make it work until morning." We were NOT happy about this lack of ability to accommodate us and we didn't sleep well ON THE FLOOR! Multiple people told us multiple things, such as, "we would be credited for our trouble" (never happened). "We could be put up in the Boat at the dock" (nope, never happened). "All rooms are booked, so you'll have to wait for our repairman." We were told that "this happened in the past to the same bed." OK, this is a financially prosperous INN so why not get a NEW BED FRAME- if that's the case? All bickering aside,Diane the Inn Keeper was a nice old British lady who was most helpful at food/refreshment service. In the end we fell victim to her old age and British charm and thanked her. We weren't stern or demanding after our night on the floor and the second night was perfect. Lesson learned: ask about the bed, or any known furniture problems Trip result: HALF BAD/HALF PERFECT
Great place to stay
My husband and I just returned from a weekend getaway to Mystic. We stayed at the Steamboat Inn and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Though our room was small (Marie Gilbert), it had a wood burning fireplace that we used multiple times, a jacuzzi tub, a very comfortable canopy bed, and a lovely view of the river. A perk of staying at this inn is that you get free parking in downtown Mystic. The innkeeper was extremely friendly and helpful. Only improvement would be the offereing of a full breakfast rather than just a continental.
Overall, a WONDERFUL place to stay that we will surely return to.
The Best Location in Mystic
My husband and I loved the Steamboat. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It is right on the water and around the corner from lots of cute little stores and yummy homemade ice cream shops. It is within easy walking distance of the Mystic Seaport.
There was a concert in the park across the river on the evening we stayed, so we opened our windows and enjoyed the music. A very nice way to relax after a busy day of sightseeing.
We only stayed one evening here. Definitely wish we would have stayed longer!
Great Weekend Getaway !
My wife and I decided to take a weekend away after a busy holiday season. We spent 3 lovely nights at the Steamboat and were treated like royalty. Great service and even sherry in the evening. Would recommend to anyone interested in a great place on the water in southeastern Connecticut!
Romantic and Cozy
This is a great B&B. Could not ask for a better location right on the water and right in down town. Not to mention 2 blocks from Mystic Pizza! Very Cozy, very clean, great service. We are looking to go back soon.
