My husband and I were visiting East Haddam to visit our son working at Goodspeed Musicals. It is a beautiful inn, very well maintained, will stay there again on our next visit to East Haddam. Breakfast was delicious and Mia, the innkeeper, is extremely accommodating. This is one of the nicest bed and breakfasts you will ever visit!

My husband and I were getting away for a midweek overnight away from the kids!!! Driving up to the inn in this quaint little town was already calming and relaxing in itself. Upon entering the inn, Mia greeted us warmly and enthusiastically. The inn is immaculately kept, with gorgeous, high ceilings, antiques, glistening chandeliers, sleek crown moldings, ornate tray ceilings,...

My husband and I loved staying at this beautifully restored mansion from the 1800s. The couple who own it couldn't have been nicer and more helpful with advice on the area. We would definitely stay here again.
