I was looking for a B & B to celebrate both occasions. Looked through our Select Registry book and found the Steamboat Inn. Wishing for warmer weather I selected "Summer Girl" for our room. The Inn is in a great location for access to shops and restaurants and we enjoyed walking around town. The exterior of the Inn is nice... More

Rooms were very comfortable and well appointed. Staff was excellent. I would definitely stay here again, only next time I'd like to go for non-work reasons so I can really soak in the benefits of staying there. The only bad thing to mention is for those of you used to putting the bathroom fan on for white noise while sleeping,... More

This was our first trip to the Mystic area and when we did a search for a place to stay, the Steamboat Inn came highly recommended. The Steamboat Inn did not disappoint. From the initial contact at the front desk to when we checked out the staff was genuinely friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in, the "Carolyn," was... More

The room was big, clean, comfortable. It had everything you needed (towels, amenities, fridge, glasses, etc...) and the view of the... More

This is the second time we have stayed here and both times were wonderful. They have warm cozy rooms with floor to ceiling windows and fireplaces. We loved looking out over the mystic river while making a nice warm fire using the firewood they provide. Homemade cookies and sherry is given in the afternoons and breakfast in the AM. Parking...

We stayed here for just one night as a stopover and totally enjoyed our same. Loved the old bridge and the quaint shopping around the area. Clean, scenic and peaceful! We will be going back as soon as possible!

The Steamboat Inn was the best place to be on such a frigid day. The staff was warm and kind. Floor to ceiling windows and fireplace made the room everything and more! The breakfast was terrific and they even gave us a coffee and muffin to go. I didn't want to leave and I can't wait to go back!
