If there was a 4.5 star I would award it. There really isn't anything I didn't like about the Boardman House Inn.

She also made a couple of recommendations that only a local...

We've spent many years visiting various B&B's in the area. Each have their own quality, but Boardman House Inn has it all. Mia is an absolute delight and makes you feel at home in her beautifully decorated home built in 1860. We stayed in the Garden Suite which is spacious with it's own porch, private entrance, garden view and nearby...

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!
