    Stafford Springs, Connecticut was known for it's mineral waters. In the earlier years it drew presidents, generals and politicians from all over the country, to bath in these healing waters known by the Indians. Stafford Springs is known for the first resort in America.  In many ways Stafford Springs remains the same except for the renasiance of our downtown from Mills to Art Galleries, Antique shops and the reopening of the Palace Theater.  We now host some of the finest music bands in the country at the intimate venue provided by the Palace Theater!  You can also enjoy the 200 acre Wildlife Refuge steps away or a few minutes drive depending on the level of hiking you are interested in undertaking.  We are an excellent location for bird watchers, hiking, runners and of course those long country strolls down on the ole dirt paths through the woods.

    Fresh fruit on hand along with beverage for your enjoyment. New England at its best is right here in our very own backyard!

     Welcome to one of America's premier historic areas where you can find rest and relaxation. Pack your cameras. No matter the season, you're sure to to make new memories. Enjoy the 200+ acrea of Wildlife Refuge behind the INN.
