Since 1973, Olde Mistick Village has been a gathering place for Mystic locals and visitors from all corners of the country. The space was modeled after a 1720-style Colonial village with a town green, meeting hall, gazebo, duck pond, and charming tree-lined walkways. The owners intentionally planned out each detail to create a welcoming place for dining, shopping, and celebrating the small things in life.
On a visit to Olde Mistick Village, you’ll find a ton of local boutiques with anything from jewelry and apparel to garden supplies and specialty teas. There are plenty of attractive dining options, including wood-fired pizza, Asian fusion, classic seafood, and homemade ice cream. It’s also a great place to catch a movie at Mystic Luxury Cinemas with excellent popcorn and adult beverages.
When you stay at our Connecticut Bed and Breakfast, you’ll only be a ten-minute drive from Olde Mistick Village. It’s a phenomenal outing to take in the beautiful countryside heading into Mystic and also to support the fantastic local people and their businesses in this town.
