                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: We are the Haynes Family from New London, CT. Three generations running a unique Bed and Breakfast. James is a musician who's been employed for many years as a telecom tech, and I'm an admin at Yale - but that's just work life. We are parents of two great grown daughters: Bessie lives with us, raising our grandchildren, a 7 year old boy and his 4 year old sister. Bess does yeoman duty as the Hostess/Director of our BNB efforts.

                      Why the Owner Chose New London:
                      New London may be small in area, but it's densely settled with a lively, hard working, diverse population. Lots of aspiring artists and musicians and independent thinkers, including those in our house. Our grandson spotted The Big House on one of his 1st days in kindergarten, across the street - and that was that.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
                      Wi-Fi throughout, continental breakfast M-F, full hot breakfast on the weekends. In-ground pool, spacious common areas. Walking Distance to downtown, the historic Garde Arts Theater, ferries. Close to Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods, Amtrack and Bus Service...
