My husband and teenage son had a wonderful one night stay at Boardman House Inn. The hosting family was very nice and accommodating, especially since our flight was 2 hours delayed and we were late for arrival. We stayed in the two rooms in the back of the house. The Garden Room for my husband and me, and the French...

Enjoyed a wonderful romantic evening at The Boardman House Inn. We have stayed at many Inn's and it is so difficult to find a small quant Inn (5 rooms) that also combines some modern comfort features that does not take away from the charm of the Inn. The Boardman House achieves all this and more! Our "Corner Room" was quiet,...

Went to this Connecticut B&B, the first my wife and I had visited as part of birthday celebration for her, after having gone to many B&B's throughout the rest of New England. We will likely look to be back in the future, as the room we selected was an excellent room, with a comfortable bed, and I loved the high...

My daughter and I had business in the Haddam area on the same day as a devastating snowstorm hit CT. We conducted our business and looked for a place to stay, as driving was almost impossible. There are two B & B's in the area. The first one asked us to leave a message so we phoned the second one,...

Took my girlfriend here for the night as part of a early Christmas surprise weekend since we'd be apart for the actual holiday. The B&B has been meticulously restored by its current owners and they have done an excellent job of keeping to the original character of the house, with appropriate modern updates (heated bathroom tile floors - very nice...

We had a quick one night stay at the Boardman House, our expectations were high and they did not disappoint. The French Suite was spotless, well appointed, and the bed was fantastic. Breakfast was excellent, and served in a beautiful dinning room!

This review is quite late...almost 9 months late. So if it's been nearly 9 months since we stayed at Boardman House, why am I writing this review?

Our two night stay was perfect. The charm of this inn is felt from the moment you drive into the front area and you are greeted at the door by Mia, the innkeeper. The attention to detail is evident everywhere. If you are looking for a charming, romantic get away, this is your place.
