Boardman House Inn in East Haddam, CT


The Boardman House Inn is located in the quaint New England riverfront village of East Haddam, just two hours from New York City or Boston and a short walk from the Goodspeed Opera House, the Connecticut River, restaurants, shopping and antiques.


Established in 1860.

Two Boardman brothers arrived in Boston colony from Lancashire, England a decade after the Mayflower. One of them settled in Connecticut. The Boardman Family was the original founders of the Connecticut Silversmith industry. Established in East Haddam CT in 1842, and utilizing the natural downward flow of East Haddam's creeks and streams, Luther Boardman built a powerful industry of mills and factories to produce his Britannia styled spoons and other cutlery. A gem among historic properties in the Connecticut River Valley, the Boardman House Inn was constructed in 1860 by the twenty-year old Silversmith Norman S. Boardman.

    A bit of Old Sweden in Old Connecticut.  Immaculate, quiet and cozy.  furnished with beautiful Swedish antiques.  Mia welcomes you like a long-lost Swedish cousin.   A delightful place to stay.

    What a beautiful place! Mia is charming, and it is evident that the place is a labor of deep, and ongoing love. The heated bathroom floors took the cake for us! The surrounding area of East Haddam, Chester, Essex. and Old Lyme were fascinating, and Mia had many wonderful recommendations. Just to add to the previous review, the complimentary Belgian chocolates and the museum passes were a very nice touch. My husband enjoyed the breakfasts (being a vegan, I didn't eat the eggs and meats). I look forward to returning in the spring, hopefully.

    Do not tell anyone about this place because I always want to be able to stay here. I think one of the most beautiful Bed and Breakfast I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. Mia and Andre have thought of every detail. Comfortable beds, gorgeous decor, radiant floor heat in the bath, warm towels..just lovely.
    Thank you for creating such a wonderful place. Oh, and walk to the Goodspeed and see a great musical.

    My sister and I stayed here recently and absolutely loved the Boardman House. Mia was a gracious and friendly host - her Belgian waffles, fresh fruit, and selection of Keurig coffee and tea was just perfect. The home was a lovely mix of both old and new, and our Corner Room was so comfortable that we really felt at home. Mia keeps the place spotless, both inside and out, and the pretty seating areas outside are simply welcoming. We are already taking about our next trip since we'd like to stay in the Boardman Room next time, also perhaps taking in a show at the Goodspeed theater that's a short walk down the road. Thank you, Mia - we'll see you again soon!

    This is truly an elegant, pristine old mansion.  The rooms are charming and
    very comfortable.    This was my third stay there.  They owners are very warm
    and welcoming......and the breakfasts are divine!
