Old Mystic Inn - Old Mystic Gay Bed & Breakfast

Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay:

Come visit us at the Old Mystic B&B, a historic Old Mystic gay bed & breakfast and colonial home built in 1784 by John Denison which once housed the Old Mystic Book Shop. Our red house is in Connecticut’s quiet village of Old Mystic, across the street from the General Store and Post Office.

Old Mystic is full of history, and has been visited by General George Washington, President Abraham Lincoln, and Daniel Webster.

Our charming Old Mystic inn house was completely renovated in 1987, and the Carriage House was built in 1988 with eight nicely appointed guestrooms named after New England authors; Mark Twain, Louisa May Alcott and Robert Frost, to name a few.

Each guestroom has a queen sized bed, a private bathroom and romantic fireplace. The main house is furnished with antiques and reproductions, original hardwood floors, and five original working fireplaces. In the main house, you’ll also find the Keeping Room, where guests can gather around the warm fireplace in the winter, watch tv, play a board game or enjoy a sing along around the piano. The main house is decorated with braided and needlepoint rugs, stenciled walls, chair rails, original detailed and iron latched doors and reproduced wax candle sconces.

The Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Dining Room is adjacent to the Keeping Room. Each morning, we serve a full hearty gourmet breakfast prepared by chef and owner Michael Cardillo, Jr. Breakfast is served by the fire in the dining room, lit by candles in the winter and by sunshine through a bay window in the summertime. Our guests also have access to the kitchen for complimentary sodas, water, coffee, tea and cocoa, along with a freshly baked goods under a glass domed cake dish.

The Old Mystic B&B is surrounded by magnificent heritage oak trees, picket fences, perennial gardens, a hammock to relax and unwind or to read a good book, and even a gazebo where guests can enjoy a glass of wine and relax.

Our Carriage House accommodations, built as a modern Victorian home, are just steps away from the main house. Each of the Carriage House guestrooms has its own entrance, queen size canopy beds, private bathrooms, gas fireplaces, and berber carpeting. Two rooms even have a standard size whirlpool tub for a little relaxation and romance!

So come and relax and unwind at the Old Mystic Bed & Breakfast, where you’ll be treated to true New England Hospitality!

New London, Connecticut Stakes Its Reputation on Gay Travelers

New London, Connecticut - Apple Maps

from Apple Maps

Packed into this picturesque, pocket-sized seaport are three colleges, a slew of historic sites and a bustling, red-brick train station. Yet beyond the gleam of the Thames River lies a struggling Northeastern city.

For a time, the pitch to remake New London revolved around visions of upscale condos, a five-star hotel and an influx of tourists, with the goal of creating a smaller, scrappier version of Newport, R.I. But that image fizzled, and now this coastal city is embarking on a new revitalization strategy, one that is built on drag brunches, gay bars and pride celebrations.

A chief believer in this new approach is the city’s mayor, Daryl Justin Finizio, who is openly gay. “We have a large gay community in New London,” Finizio said as he walked downtown one morning last week. “If you go from Providence to Hartford to New Haven and shade in all of the land area [in between], there is only municipality with a gay or lesbian bar: New London. and we have two.”

The Rejuvenation of New Haven, Connecticut

Author: , November 16th, 2011

Gay New Haven, ConnecticutNew Haven, the coastal Connecticut city made famous by being the home of Yale University, is emerging as a culinary and artistic destination. Yes, there are pockets of its downtown streets that remain gloomy, streets haunted by rows of abandoned stores and an overarching sense of abandonment.

But there is also visible evidence that the efforts the city is putting into reinventing and rejuvenating itself are succeeding.

I returned to New Haven after a long hiatus. Some years ago, I’d drive from Rhode Island on assignment from a newspaper in Providence to review plays at Long Wharf and Yale Rep (as I did this time around), breezing in to see the shows and breezing out that same night. The newspaper never encouraged overnight stays, but they contributed to the cost of the pizza I’d order from one of New Haven’s famous brick oven pizzerias that kept me company while I drove home.
