Ideally located central to the best of Mystic attractions! An easy walk of less than 1/10 of a mile is the North entrance to the Mystic Seaport Museum, Latitude 41 restaurant, and Shipyard Tavern.
Less than a mile in one direction is the Mystic Marine Life Aquarium, and the numerous shops/ restaurants of Olde Mystic Village. A mile the other direction (south) you will find yourself at the historic drawbridge in the heart of downtown Mystic. Ideal for couples, singles, couples with a child.
Although we are so close to all the attractions, our place is in a remarkably quiet area given our proximity to all the activity. We are set back several lots on a side street off the main drag.
From our front yard, you are looking down at the scenic Mystic River, and in a few steps you can cross the street and enjoy an ice cream stand or iconic snack shop with picnic tables set right on the water.
Your hosts, John and Robin are lifelong travelers for work and pleasure and know exactly what is required for the perfect vacation stay. We provide all the extra touches: luxury linens, coffee K cups, snacks, bottled water and occasionally…a surprise libation!
There is one queen bed, and the couch turns into a sleeper very easily. The sleeper would be great for a child, but is actually comfortable enough and intended for an adult to have a good night sleep.
A well equipped kitchenette allows the option of dining in as much as you like. At the very least help yourself to a morning coffee/breakfast to start your day!
High speed Xfinity WIFI and cable TV. In addition to cable, the smart TV has the usual apps, so you are welcome to sign into any you subscribe to.
Should a more formal engagement bring you to town, such as business or a wedding we have you covered with plenty of closet and hanging space. As well as a full-length mirror in the bathroom, and ironing gear.
We welcome respectful guests from all backgrounds and diversity. Mystic is a beautiful, accepting, and peaceful place. We do not however accept reservations from any guest with negative feedback from another host.
