10 Little Known Inns In Connecticut That Offer An Unforgettable Overnight Stay
If inns are so awesome, why do folks keep staying in hotels? The truth is, most Americans just don’t think to search for inns when they’re booking their vacations. But the reality is that inns are usually less expensive per night than hotel rooms, and come with more amenities. An inn less than a mile away from a hotel can save you an average of sixty dollars! So whether you’re coming from another state or just visiting another county for the weekend, consider spending the night at one of those places!
1. The Copper Beech Inn (Ivoryton)
Just a short way from Essex Village, this charming inn is decorated elegantly and sits on a large patch of scenic lands. With free parking, wi-fi, and breakfast, this place is a real steal!
2. The Whaler's Inn (Mystic)
Located in one of Connecticut's most beloved maritime towns, this inn is more modern than some of its competitors, but still has Colonial touches. In addition to a free continental breakfast, they also offer their guests bikes to go exploring.
3. Scranton Seahorse Inn (Madison)
If you want the New England backdrop with modern amenities like a whirlpool tub, then this is the place for you. I imagine this is what visiting Martha Stewart would be like, gourmet breakfast and well decorated common rooms included.
4. Stonecroft Country Inn (Ledyard)
This inn may be set in a sea captain's home, but its decor screams rustic chic. This place is perfect for romance or a girls' weekend. The six acres here are perfect for a lazy stroll, equipped with a koi pond, waterfall, and a number of gardens.
5. Mountain View Inn (Norfolk)
You'll enjoy a very regal stay at this one! The Victorian-style inn is dripping with antiques. With an onsite art gallery and private bathrooms in every room, this place is comparable to a high-end hotel stay.
6. Roseledge Country Inn (Preston)
Equipped with its own farm store, you could leave this place with a lot of fresh goodies. Either way, you'll appreciate the lush grounds. They provide gorgeous garden views that will go well with your complimentary evening wine.
7. Wallingford Victorian Inn (Wallingford)
With a library and a parlor, this truly is a Victorian getaway, complete with 4-poster beds and fireplaces in some rooms. There will even be a complimentary full breakfast in the morning! But beyond the view and breakfast you'll wake up to is the wine and cheese hour, making this a must visit for a romantic weekend.
8. West Lane Inn (Ridgefield)
Just a short walk from the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, this house has been standing for more than 150 years. With private decks and heated towel racks, you will feel like real life royalty.
9. Griswold Inn (Essex)
This inn has a full service American restaurant and wine bar, so you'll never have to leave! The dark wood paneling makes for an intimate feel, but the tap room definitely livens things up with its local crown and live music performances.
10. Tolland Inn (Tolland)
This place is so quaint and friendly that you'll think you're visiting your own grandmother! This historic bed and breakfast is a short distance from UConn and a very convenient stop if you're traveling along the I-84.
These places look great, don’t they? If you have an inn you love in Connecticut that didn’t make the list, we want to know about it!
