About the Property

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

Our home is located in the heart of Historic Mystic 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.

Our historic 2-bedroom home offers both late 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. But you will also find an electronic entry system, High-speed internet access, Wi-Fi, 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 and cooking/eating utensils. There is generous seating in both the dining and living room areas together with remotely controlled lighting and ceiling fans.


Bedrooms and 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. Additional sleeping accommodation can also be found in the living room on a queen size sofa bed. The bathroom includes 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.

There is a highchair in the kitchen, a Pack and Play crib in the rear bedroom, a crate of juvenile toys in the reading nook and plenty of books, books and more books.

The elevated front veranda 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 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 .

Mystic is a unique New England village straddling the Mystic River. The portion of the village on the right (west) bank was originally known as Mystic River and is part of the town of Groton CT. The left bank was originally known as Mystic Bridge and is a part of the town of Stonington CT. Downtown Mystic River is comprised of Water Street, West Main Street, Pearl Street and Gravel Street. East Main Street, Holmes Street and Cottrell Street make up the Mystic Bridge side of the village. Walking is the best way to get around downtown and all of downtown is within easy walking distance from our home. In season, day and dinner cruises aboard the Argia sailing ship along the river and around Fishers Island Sound are sure to make your Mystic visit a most memorable experience.

Whether you prefer walking, biking, water taxi or shuttle, you are only minutes away from restaurants, shopping, multi-denominational houses of worship, Mystic Seaport Museum and Mystic Aquarium.

It is a short drive to the historic fishing village of Stonington Borough home to Capt. Palmer discoverer of Antarctica, Fort Griswold Revolutionary War battle site on the Groton Bank, Fort Trumbull that fell to an assault instigated by Benedict Arnold, Submarine Museum home of the USS Nautilus, the first nuclear powered submarine and first submarine to navigate beneath the North Pole, Bluff Point State Park, Haley Farm State park, Barn Island Wildlife Preserve, Watch Hill RI and some of the best ocean beaches on the Atlantic coast. And yes, it is but a short drive to Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos.

Our property is a short 5-minute drive from I-95 Exit 89. The route through downtown from Exit 90 will take a bit longer but is probably worth the extra time for a first time visitors eager to take a driving tour through our little village.
T.F. Green International (Providence/Warwick RI) is about a 45-minute drive;
Bradley International Airport (Hartford/Springfield) is approximately a 1hr 20m drive;
Logan International (Boston) is only a 2hr drive.
If you're coming by train to New London you’ll have a 15-minute drive;
By train to Westerly RI it’s about a 25-minute drive;
If you take the train to Mystic Depot you'll have a 10-minute walk from the depot to the property but it will undoubtedly take a bit longer as you take in the sites of this historic village.
