What travellers are saying
- Sampled a few wines before purchase. Relaxed and friendly service.
Lovely grounds. Some food vendors offering lunch and beverages. I suggest the Seaport white and the Rose.Written 9 October 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- On a visit to Stonington we visited this well preserved mid-19th century historic lighthouse located on the east side of Stonington Harbour. There is a public car park nearby at the end of the point. No longer operational it is now a local history museum. The building consists of a keeper's house with a light tower frontage both built in granite. It is open weekends via an entry fee of $10 per adult ($5 seniors) and the museum is full of interesting maritime artefacts. The 35 feet tower is climbable and worth it for the view. The museum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.Written 6 October 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- A small vineyard (maybe 12 acres, on an inlet). Several chairs outside for lounging, and big indoor function space. A few steel fermentation vats and maybe 20 oak barrels. Really not much to see. Friendly. Clean toilet.Written 8 June 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Beautiful little island at the very end of the Long Island Sound. It's a religious retreat now, complete with retreat house (converted mansion), incredibly beautiful grounds and a nice chapel. Bring a lunch if the weather permits and enjoy the scenery. Lots and lots of well-marked plantings, with something in bloom from Spring to Autumn. Check out the beautiful chapel. Be sure to take a look at the 800 year-old preserved arm of St. Edmund of Canterbury, which will alternately inspire you or gross you out, or both. Probably the largest religious relic in Connecticut.Written 13 November 2023
- A well kept house once owned by Palmer, a prominent seaman. Many artifacts on display. Not a big house, and no Wow factor, but everything is well done. Nice historic house to visit when in Stonington. Clean toilet.Written 8 June 2023
- During our stay at Mystic, we visited the pretty town of Stonington, situated on the mile long peninsula into Fisher's Island Sound. Dubois beach is at the end of the point opposite the Stonington Lighthouse Museum. It is a sandy inlet, very small and quiet. Access is via pre purchased passes @ $10 per day. There is a public car park and 'portaloo' toilet. Lifeguards are on duty through the day. It provides good views both in the daytime and evening for sunsets. Unfortunately the inlet does accumulate seaweed which requires regular removal.Written 6 October 2023
- Quality beer. Family friendly atmosphere. Good food offerings on-site. Nice merchandise.
The tasting room does 1/2 pours, which is fine by me! My husband I enjoyed our time here in a very relaxed atmosphere. Staff were friendly and helpful. Our two boys (kinder and 3rd grade) were welcomed.Written 12 November 2022

- During our stay in Connecticut my wife and I visited the lovely borough of Stonington. Driving towards the point to visit the lighthouse museum there is a small attractive square in the middle of the residential area which has a long nautical history. This was the location of a famous battle in 1814 when British gunships attacked the borough against only two eighteen-pound cannons manned by the people of Stonington. Incredibly the town held out and defeated the invasion. The two cannons were saved, restored and proudly placed in the square and are displayed with cannon balls and shot. A stone engraved remembrance plaque reads 'Here the brave men of Stonington defeated a landing force from his majesty's ship 'Ramillies' bent on burning the town and it's shipping - August 10 1814'
Recommended and well worth combining a visit to the square when visiting the lighthouse museum just along the road.Written 14 October 2023
