The Edward Denison house was built in 1710 and is one of the oldest homes in Stonington. Located just steps from the Road Meeting House and a 5 minute drive from Stonington Borough. This is a wonderful area for biking, also has many walking trails.

Maximum occupancy for the Noyes Room is 2 people. One dog or one cat is allowed by prior arrangement and with a $25 pet fee. A $25 gift card for breakfast on the water at Kitchen Little in Mystic is included for nightly rentals.

The space

It is said, “If you have two pennies, with the first buy bread and with the second buy hyacinths for your soul.” Our 1710 colonial home, offers THREE large guestrooms (each rented separately), private jetted baths, fireplaces, gardens and quiet country setting near the heart of Mystic. NONE of our rooms accommodate more than 2 adults and 1 small child so plan accordingly when requesting your reservation.

Within three miles of downtown Mystic, historic Stonington Borough, the Aquarium, and the Seaport, our home sits on 4 1/2 acres of gardens, fields and forest. Excellent opportunities abound for quiet, romantic walks or secluded hideaways for reading. Relax in the ambiance of a home that has for three centuries provided shelter and respite.

Our three guestrooms are beautifully appointed including such amenities as WiFi, hair dryers, cable TV/DVD/VCR, individual refrigerators, and irons and ironing boards. All guest rooms are on the second floor accessed by a staircase (no elevator.) Sleeping options include a king bed or two twins in one room, a queen bed in another room and a queen and a twin in the two room suite. All of our guest rooms have private baths.

Free off street parking, wander our grounds or walk through the wood at the Avalonia Land Trust trails a quarter of a mile away. The Mystic Train Station is about 4 miles, local cab service is available as well as bike and car rentals.

Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cookies and snacks are always on hand. We no longer serve breakfast at the inn but include a $25 gift card to Mystic's Kitchen Little. (Lots of breakfast places, Dunkin Donuts in the area and a Starbucks, too!) Please note that the weekly rate is discounted by 25% and does not include the Kitchen Little breakfast gift cards.

Jim works full-time at Mystic Seaport in the Shipyard, doing antique engine restoration and restoration of various vessels. Sandra is a registered nurse, currently working in assisted living and occupational health. We have a dog named Jackie, a cat, Hobo, a horse named Tommy Dorsey and a miniature horse, Inspector Morse.

Please let us know why you're visiting the area so that we may better answer your questions. Please note that we favor longer visits and may not accept a one or two night booking more than a couple of weeks in advance. However, it never hurts to ask!

Sandra's house is a wonderful old New England place. It's quiet and full of character, however, if you're sensitive to smells, you might want to choose another airbnb because your nose can tell the age of the house as soon as you walk in the door. That said, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, and it's a great place if you have a dog who travels well and is friendly with both unknown people and unknown pets.

Must-stay for anyone who loves history! Somehow manages to be close to the very quaint town of Stonington, while totally quiet and secluded. Will definitely be back!

Enjoyed our stay. Nice details like a refrigerator in the room and electric candles in the windows. Lots of charm. We were the only guests so lots of privacy! Location close to Stonington and Mystic attractions.

Response from Sandra:
Melanie, thank you for the cleaning notices and the heads up on the DVD cable. No idea where that went to! We've had a problem with our dryer (now replaced) putting black streaks on the sheets. And open windows do certainly invite dust and cobwebs, our apologies for not keeping up. Traffic in the summer is minimal (since school's out) but you will hear some cars go by in the late afternoon as people head home. Take care and thanks, again!

Charming old house, beautiful scenic location, friendly and caring hosts! We traveled as a family with our young daughter, Sandra and Jim let her feed the horses, took time to show her around and answer all of her endless questions! the stay at house was the best part of our visit to the Mystic area.
