charming and clean, with a New England flavor

“If you prefer the flavor of a New England seaport, stay at The Whaler’s Inn. The rooms are charming and the cleanest you’ll find anywhere.”

Mystic's little gem

“The room was stunning, and the beds were so comfy. We didn't want to leave! We have found a nice little gem in Mystic!”

a wonderful place to stay right in the heart of Mystic

“From the friendly staff to the tasteful decor and the delicious warm chocolate chip cookies, the Inn is a wonderful place to stay right in the heart of Mystic. Lots of shops and restaurants just steps away, as well as the river that can be seen from your window. I look forward to visiting again soon.”
