About the property

2) One BR suites, full baths, Sleeps 2 & 3

Relax and enjoy the charms of downtown Mystic. Located on the historic property of Captain William Morgan, an 18th century sea captain, this private Carriage House is situated just a 1/4 block from downtown.. in the heart of Mystic, but also quiet & secluded. A very 'Norman Rockwell-like' setting!

There are two suites for rent. These are side by side but not connected. Both back up to the private terrace behind with beautiful gardens. The larger suite sleeps three with a king bed and smaller full size futon. The smaller with a king bed sleeps two.

Next door on a separate lot is the Captain Morgan House. This sleeps up to ten and can be seen on HomeAway listing # 985419. For larger groups renting both the Carriage House and Capt. Morgan House is a great option.

Welcoming Basket, Breakfast, etc.: I would be happy to arrange a special welcoming basket to suit your needs upon your arrival. Please phone ahead to discuss this with me. Various themes could include birthday, anniversary, engagement, girls weekend away!, etc. I am also happy to stock your refrigerator... just ask. Arrangements can be made to have a deluxe continental breakfast basket brought to your door in the morning. Again, please arrange this ahead of time.

Specialty Packages...: I have organized SPECIAL GET AWAY PACKAGES... some of which are the 'Thelma & Louise Girls Getaway', 'Mexican Fiesta Weekend',

'The Honeymooners', 'It's YOUR Birthday', 'Halloween Hauntings', 'Christmas is Coming' and MANY more! I am also happy to work with you to create a customized get away package!

Some items contained in these special get aways are.... spa treatments, restaurant dining, chartered boat trips, cocktail hour food & drinks, greeting baskets, breakfasts delivered to your door, biking, kayaking, picnic baskets, Holiday activities, ETC. These weekends can be for 2-6 people and the rate varies per person according to the activities desired. Most of the activities are within walking distance from the Carriage House. Please call me to discuss the options.

Year Round Activities....: Mystic is lively not only during to summer but YEAR ROUND.... I decorate the Carriage House seasonally to create a wonderful atmosphere.My various getaway packages reflect the different holiday moods and include many activities such as the Holiday Shopping Stroll & Mystic Seaports 'Lantern Light Tour' in December....'Haunted Happenings' in October, winery tours, etc. I have many suggestions and I love to celebrate the holidays!

This is a very private unit within walking distance to downtown Mystic (1/4 block). The river is along the next street. Parking is off street - directly in front. I am located in the historic district of Mystic...a great area to stroll. The home is located only 10 minutes from Foxwoods Casino and 20 minutes form Mohegan Sun.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this cottage myself - with friends - and sent my parents for a short stay. Both times we were thrilled with the amenities, the location, and the trip overall. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for the perfect getaway in Mystic. I know the town well and this is a real gem.

Well kept and Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both sides of the carriage house. The property is immaculate and well supplied. We were very pleased at the location; walking distance to everything. Off street parking and a private patio was a welcome "plus". Susan was very helpful with restaurant recommendations and any other questions we had. We will definitely go back

Great spot to spend Valentine's weekend.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the Carriage House. It was a perfect spot for a relaxing weekend. Walking distance to downtown Mystic restaurants and shops. The unit has everything you need and very comfortable. Actually, the king bed was one of the best night's sleep we have had in a very long time. We will be back.

Enchanted Carriage house

  • 5 of 5

We love this place. We hate to give this place such a good review because we want it to be our little secret! Beautifully decorated, immaculate, stocked with everything you might need. Plenty of fresh towels. The patio is our own private garden with lovely landscaping. Mystic is a great area to go exploring. Everyone is very friendly. We will definitely come back here. Very peaceful. Great location and parking. Having lobster everyday! Close to so many great places! Thanks Susan!

We rented both cottages for our fun family reunion. The accomendations are beautiful, clean and very comfortable. The location is perfect, you can walk everywhere!

The back yard was perfect between the gardens and fire pit, we were quite happy there. Susan was accommodating in every way and we will definitely return!

Quaint, Romantic close to town

  • 5 of 5

Quaint romantic close to everything. We stayed in the larger cottage which had all the amenities for a comfortable stay. The garden was very relaxing to unwind after a day of bicycling and walking around town. Susan was a great host and we look forward to staying with her again. Would be great for a girlfriends get away too….
