"From the moment we walked into Abbey's Lantern Hill Inn there was a sense of peaceful serenity that stayed with us throughout our whole visit. We came here for a night away at the end of March 2012. The inn is situated on big lawn (it would be a great place to play croquet!) with a really neat veranda/pergola/outdoor barbecue area off to the side. Spring flowers were coming up in the garden. The woods & winding country road (right near Long Pond & of course, Lantern Hill) where the inn is located makes the casino feel far away, when in fact it's probably less than a quarter of a mile. We stayed in the Cadillac Room which has a big red hot tub, a gigantic flat screen t.v. (which has now convinced my boyfriend that we need one like that), a comfy queen size bed & its own little outside, second floor porch with table & chairs. We had a glass of wine on the porch as we listened to the spring peepers in the woods beyond the sloping lawn. It really felt like an escape & reminded me a bit of a place I've stayed at in Russian River, California. The room was super clean & very comfortable. Erika, who runs the inn, was very welcoming and friendly. She told us about a great place in Mystic where we wound up having dinner. There's ton to do around Mystic (we want to see the Pequot Museum next time) & we'll be back in the summer (to canoe on Long Pond & go to the beach in Rhode Island) & in fall on a leaf peeping trip & go to Mystic Seaport." ~Helen W. (Marblehead, MA)
"We had the best honeymoon ever here. The owner is so kind and caring. The location is breathtaking. The prices are so affordable and the rooms are definitely worth the money. We stayed in the Mystic Room and honestly when it was time to go we didn't want to leave. I have recommended to my family and friends to stay at Abbey's." ~Will & Tonya W.
"We recently had a fabulous time at Abbey's Lantern Hill Inn. We took our two puppies and stayed in the immaculate and charming cottage (Chateau Eve). The cottage had a fenced backyard for the puppies (which they loved) and a side-deck with party lights and a bistro table. The bed was very comfortable, and the room had a television and a couch and refrigerator and a good-sized bathroom. The service was excellent. Erika greeted us with a big smile and offered us champagne glasses when she showed us our room. She prepared fantastic and healthy breakfasts (organic eggs, milk, plantains, and turkey bacon). Additionally, her knowledge of the local area provided us with four great ideas for hikes and nature walks with the dogs. Although the Inn is very close to Foxwoods (literally around the corner) it has a charming wooded setting (we saw deer in the backyard). We can't speak highly enough of this charming, lovely Bed and Breakfast." ~Brindey W. (Boston, MA)
"My fiance and I were there for Memorial Day weekend. We immediately fell in love with the location. Erika the owner was very friendly and helpful and recommended us a lot of great things to see/places to go to. The property has so much character. We were in the little cottage with our dog and she had the best time! The grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed relaxing in the hammock and on the grass! We'll definitely come back!" ~Alex J. (NY, NY)
"Abbey's is a charming place, wonderful breakfast and service - tucked away in a historic area of CT, near enough to Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun to make them available or to resist temptation! Near Mystic, Stonington and Noank - if you've never been to New England, this is the perfect place in which to relax and get great local advice and a real flavor of the environs from Erika. All the recommendations for restaurants and activities she gave us were spot-on! We enjoyed stimulating conversations with Erika, who made us feel at home. We hope we will be able to return soon. Well worth the trip from NJ. Three thumbs up :)" ~Bob and Barbara K. (Westfield, NJ)
"Thank you so much for making our engagement weekend perfect at your inn. Everything was beautiful and it was so nice of you to help Vinnie with getting the flowers & champagne. The weekend was more than we ever imagined. Thanks again!" ~Annie & Vinnie
