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 stayed here for the long weekend of Columbus Day. We stayed in the Garden Room Suite and it was wonderful. The room was beautiful. The sitting room with the couch and tv was very comfortable and very pleasant. The bathroom with the heated floor was great. The breakfast was very good and the people were very friendly.

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? The Boardman House has been our number one B&B recommendation to our friends and family. The quality of our suite, the warm hospitality, and the tranquility of the area were memorable. We have...

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.

From August 18th through August 21st, we had a wonderful trip to Connecticut and stayed at the Boardman House in East Haddam. We were in a suite, their largest. The rooms and bath were elegant, and the breakfasts were delicious. The Inn was quiet and peaceful. We were so grateful that the couple who (after registering as only two people)...

Spent one night at Boardman last week. Warm welcome from Mia. Our room was well decorated, comfortable, impeccably clean. Bathroom modern, functional, nice towels. Breakfast was simple but delicious. We enjoyed chatting with an interesting array of other guests. It is a lovely building, well managed, and short walk to Goodspeed. You will not find anything nicer in the area!...

I've never given a bad review on trip advisor, but I am compelled to write about my experience at the Boardman House.

The reviewer made the reservation for two people in one room, conveniently excluding the fact that they actually were going to be five people, which would have prompted us to inquire about the other three people. The reviewer claims that we neglected to mention that children under 12 are not allowed, when it in reality was the reviewer who didn’t...
