Inn at Harbor Hill Marina - Niantic, CT
Arrive as strangers - leave as friends/family - Truly a great Relaxing Time October 30, 2007
Not far from home but this bed and breakfast makes you feel miles away. This was our third time staying at Harbor Hill Marina and as always it was a great relaxing couple of day which went by way to fast. We could have used a couple of more days. This inn has a wonderful staff of employees, each one adds to the friendly, family feeling you get from the time you walk in the door until you leave. You will leaving the inn feeling very spoiled by all the special touches along with your super hospitality, along with the great views from your room and the grounds of the Marina. After staying here you just may never even want to think about going to any other B&B. The staff always has little tips and places to suggest you see. They even have itineraries which they have made up on places to drive to and things to see.

On our most recent trip on the suggestion of the innkeeper we took his advise along with his itinerary and drove up to the "quiet corner" of CT (as he calls it) and went to the Christmas Barn and the antique market place along with a winery. It was such a great way to spend the day, ending it off with a wonderful dinner at Anthony's in Mystic.
On the weekends the innkeeper makes some great hot breakfast, such as apple pancakes, pecan stuff french toast which are super.
So the next time you are looking for a place to relax and have all the comforters of home, try The Inn at Harbor Hill Marina - Niantic, CT.
I highly recommend it.
