Overview

About the property

Great downtown location is perfect for fine dining, sightseeing & entertaining.

Our home is in the heart of Historic Mystic located half way between the Mystic Museum of Art and Captain Daniel Packer Inn and is within easy walking distance to all Downtown Mystic restaurants, shops, and attractions.

This Water Street property is an historic 2-bedroom home constructed in 1845 in the Greek Revival style and offers both 19th century charm and 21st century convenience. It is fully furnished and decorated with an eclectic collection of Americana, period pieces, folk art, curiosities, and other items of local interest. The doors are a bit crooked, the floors slant and the glass in most of the windows is wavy. Keep in mind the home was built prior to modern building codes so the stairs are a bit steeper than modern homes and may be a challenge for guests with a mobility condition. But you will also find Wi-Fi with High-speed internet access, HDTV and state of the art heating and A/C.

On the main floor, you will enjoy a fully appointed galley kitchen equipped with a range/oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, garbage disposal, and microwave oven. You will also find a coffee maker, toaster, pots, pans, dishes as well as all essential cooking/eating utensils. There is generous seating in both the dining and living room areas together with remotely controlled lighting and ceiling fans. Sorry, no washer or dryer.

The two bedrooms and the fully renovated bathroom are located on the second floor where you will also find a cozy reading nook with its own great view of the Mystic River. Both bedrooms have queen size beds, a comfortable sitting area, dresser drawers with full size mirrors and plenty of closet space. Recommended occupancy is for parties of four but additional sleeping accommodations can be found in the living room on the queen size convertible sofa bed for larger parties. The single bathroom offers a full-size tub/shower combination and custom vanity/sink. Bedding, linens, and bath towels are provided for the number of guests listed in your reservation.

Our guests with youngsters you will find a highchair in the kitchen, a Pack and Play crib, a crate of juvenile toys in the reading nook, plenty of puzzles, lots of board games and plenty of books, books, and more books. There are playing cards and plenty of great books for adults as well – lots of books.

The elevated front veranda seating area offers an awesome view of the Mystic River and is a great place for people watching. There is a large rear deck with table, chairs, and gas grill right at the foot of historic St. Jago Ledge if you prefer a more intimate setting.

We provide on-site parking for two vehicles or a single vehicle with a modest boat trailer. There is a public boat launch less than a minute’s walk from the front door and transient dockage at Downtown Mystic Marina directly across the street.

Perfectly comfortable and perfectly located

  • 4 of 5

Possibly one of the best spots in town is the front porch of this home with its harbor views and seeing the coming and going of folks into town, but not right in the midst of it all. Everything is walkable. The home is more than comfortable with an amazing array of antiques, art, period pieces and general decor items. Don’t miss the public library a five minute walk uphill from Michael’s. Michael was very accommodating with early arrival and late checkout and we met his daughter at one of the local establishments so we felt a bit like locals!

Great location. Clean. Unique. Awesome

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here during a New England vacation. It was perfect. The location had close access to shops, restaurants and boats. Also an easy walk to Mystic Seaport. The property is unique, clean and comfortable. The owners are fantastic too.

Family-friendly house just blocks from downtown Mystic

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year here, and it was another wonderful trip. The house was cozy and charming, just a few blocks from downtown Mystic, and well stocked with the items needed for a family of five to operate far from home. Love this house!!

a lot of personality

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed three nights for Coast Guard Academy graduation. The property is charming and comfortable, with a spacious dining room and a cozy kitchen. Enjoyed the books and games. Buying groceries nearby is a bit of a trick (the Stop and Shop is a few miles away), but there are lots of options for dining out within easy walking distance. We took morning walks/runs by the waterfront and then up into the beautiful neighborhoods. Mystic is a lovely town, and we'd stay here again!
