A recent announcement by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protect predicted an early start for the Connecticut fall foliage change this year. Historically, the leaves begin to switch from lush greens to golden and reddish hues in mid-October but expect to see these autumnal colors starting as soon as the last week of September in 2022. Thankfully, there are so many amazing state parks, nature, and scenic drives in which to best soak up this stunning show.
As a guest at our Mystic Bed and Breakfast, you’ll be able to take in the Connecticut fall foliage from our beautiful 6.5-acre grounds and the windows of your guest suite. Whether you stay in our restored historical 1807 house or renovated yellow barn building, you’ll feel completely at ease and at home in our luxuriously appointed guest rooms and suites. Located just five miles from downtown Mystic, you’ll be close to everything but set back in the peaceful countryside.

You’ll love the scenic drive from our B&B, as this area will be awash in the pretty Connecticut fall foliage. Don’t miss the famous apple cider donuts, a local favorite yearly tradition.
