It was a beautiful New England weekend, perfect for a getaway to Mystic, Connecticut. The kind people at the Inn at Mystic invited us to be their guests for a night, and since I hadn’t been to Mystic since I was very young, we were excited to make a weekend of it.
There’s a ton to do in Mystic, including shopping, great eating, visiting the Mystic Seaport and all of the historic boats, and I will share more on that later. Our home base for the trip, Inn at Mystic, could not have been better. Located just at the edge of town, the inn is perched atop a hill, giving it stunning views of Mystic Harbor and Fischer’s Island Sound.
Everyone at the inn, and everyone in Mystic, in fact, was really friendly and welcoming. It’s a happy little town, and being that it’s so beautiful, it’s easy to see why.
Our room was absolutely lovely. My favorite features included a gigantic Jacuzzi tub and a wood burning fireplace, along with our balcony with beautiful views.
Decor was simple and classic, blues, whites, and browns creating a relaxing and comfortable vibe. The room featured a variety of high end toiletries and a coffee maker, both nice touches. Every little comfort was thought of, and we felt so well taken care of.
The Inn at Mystic’s restaurant Harbour House shares the stunning views that our room had, and offers guests an expansive patio for enjoying food and drink and a bit of sunshine.
Inside the restaurant was equally as sunny and bright. What an inviting space!
The bar had a great cocktail menu, and I had a delicious Manhattan during Happy Hour while we chatted about our day and started to get hungry for dinner.
Our stay generously included dinner at Harbour House, and we stuck with the seafood theme we had kicked off at lunch. Ahi Tuna Tacos were some of the best fish tacos I have ever had. I don’t need to eat fried fish tacos ever again! Everything in the tacos was bursting with flavor, citrus, spice, and an addictive wasabi dipping sauce.
The seafood tower we ordered was the stuff of my dreams. Giant shrimp, lobster, clams, and oysters, all with spicy cocktail sauce and mignonette made for a filling and healthy dinner. It also provided fuel for dancing into the night.
Harbour House was just getting started when we finished dinner, so some Connecticut wine and dancing rounded out our night, all in all a beautiful and really fun experience. The Inn at Mystic went above and beyond and clearly knew the true meaning of hospitality from start to finish. I would return again in a heartbeat; in fact I am trying to convince family and friends to meet us there for a weekend getaway.
The Inn at Mystic welcomed us as their guests, and our room, dinner, and breakfast were hosted. All opinions are my own.
