A Note To Our Guests
For over 50-years, The Whaler’s Inn has been a destination in downtown Mystic, providing quality service and lodging. In an effort to continue offering cozy, comfortable and memorable experiences for our guests, we have embarked on a multi-phase project designed to enhance and improve our guestrooms and the amenities that we offer. We are thrilled to be putting the love, time and attention into the property that she deserves, and cannot wait to share the end-result with our friends and family. Be sure to check back often to see the latest renovations update.

Art is Function
Our new lobby space will be functional, yet beautiful, thanks to Andy Tomlinson and the crew at Salt Box Kitchens. This local company is creating a masterpiece with the built in cabinets, check in desk, and statement fireplace. The gas fireplace, surrounded by blue tile a classic white mantle, and warm shiplap make this statement piece the focal point of the space.
We are honored to have a local designer, Samantha Coogan, partnering with us on this endeavor. Rich blue upholstery and comfortable leather pieces along with brass and rubbed oil bronze lighting fixtures create a the ideal spot for catching up and catching your breath during your next visit to the Inn.
A Discovery Around Every Corner
When renovating a building built over 150 years ago, one never knows what they may find. This is the exciting part of our journey. To date, we’ve learned quite a bit about how the original home was constructed; hidden fireplaces, stairwells, and doors with skeleton key locks appear almost daily. Keep checking back to see what else we may find!
Guestrooms & Bathrooms
Creating space is key in a historic building. Functionality is key, ensuring our guests have all the creature comforts while still providing the charm of the historic home. Pedestal sinks, double showers, and oil rubbed bathroom fixtures will provide weary guests a place to wash their cares away.
Four poster beds in warm wood tones in the sleeping areas perpetrate the feeling of visiting George W. Mallory’s home in the late 19th century. Step back in time with the comforts of the 21st century with individually controlled heat/ac & wall mounted flat screen tv’s, while you make a phone call home from your in-room candlestick phone.
