“Lovely weekend stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

My husband and I had a relaxing weekend at the Boardman house in East Haddam, CT. We enjoyed the perfect location and setting. The inn is georgeous as well as immaculate. Mia was a wonderful hostess. We hope to return this summer!

Well presented, well managed and a great location. Good village of Chester nearby ( excellent French Restaurant). Dinner and Show package at nearby Gelston House and the Goodspeed Opera House was fantastic...food and show both.

On a recent weekend getaway my wife and I had the pleasure of staying overnight at The Boardman House. The house was beautifuly done and the rooms were extremely comfortable. Mia (our hostess/owner) was extremely accommodating when I had made an error is the dates. After calling her and explaining my error she went out of her way to assist in my error and adjust the dates accordingly. Breakfast was magnificent and parking was adjacent to the property. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms to the rear of the house are away from the street and much quieter.

It was our 41st Anniversary and we had tickets to the Goodspeed Opera House, to see Most Happy Fella, and we needed a place to stay. Using Trip Advisor we found the Boardman House Inn. It is a 2 minute walk to Goodspeed. We had the Corner Room at the Inn. It was nice size, absolutely clean and has an adjacent terrace deck with great views. The room was furnished beautifully and the Bathroom looked brand new. The grounds are gorgeous and parking is ample. The Inn is a historic gem that looks totally new inside. Breakfast was simple but adequate. Coffee is available 24/7... My only complaint was we were unable to drop off our luggage early. Check in is 3 to 6pm but we had mentioned we would arrive at 1 to hopefully drop off our stuff before we went to the 2:00 Matinee performance at Goodspeed. The foilage in the area is incredible. Weather cooperated too.

Room Tip: Corner room is the least expensive but it was great.

I have never been a hugh fan of B&Bs because I find them dated in a dingy way but I took a chance and booked a night in the "Corner room" and was pleasantly surprised. The owners have done a great job restoring this historic home... the king size bed was comfy, the bathroom was very modern with heated floor and a roomy stand up shower beautifully tiled. The owners were very welcoming and made us feel right at home. And definitely don't miss out on breakfast in the morning.. the best frenchtoast I've ever had!

My husband and I had a wonderful, relaxing anniversary weekend in the CT Valley and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Boardman House Inn. The owners have done a beautiful restoration of the property and have appointed it with lovely antiques in combination with luxurious linens and modern bathrooms that blend in beautifully with the decor and style of the house. We stayed in the Boardman Room, which stunning and so comfortable.

The two breakfasts we had were delicious and served on beautiful china. The french toast was in the European style, rich and crispy, and the fruit was fresh and delicious. Mia, the owner, couldn't have been lovelier. Her hospitality and good taste are reflected in every detail from the room amenities to the timely, tasty and appetizing presentation of each dish. I highly recommend the Boardman House!
