And if you are, you can bring your boat right up to the inn, where dockside is literally right outside the door. Windows in the inn’s 11 luxurious rooms, some of them panoramic, overlook the beautiful Mystic River. One room even has dock entrance directly wharfside – it’s like staying on a yacht. Guests can book a sail aboard the schooner Argia, which sails from Steamboat Wharf daily. They can also walk right outside the door into the heart of a seafaring village with a picturesque drawbridge, great restaurants and shops. Nearby are historic Mystic Seaport and the Mystic Aquarium.
