About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9-13)

The Stagecoach Inn is a newly restored Colonial Home built in 1790. The home is so named because of its use as a Stagecoach stop in the 1700's. It lies in the Historic Village of Poquetanuck named in 1687. The home is newly furnished with an eclectic style of new and antique furniture. It is as comfortable for adults with children as it is for adults without children. Our location is central to the Mystic and More area of Connecticut making any of the sights reachable within 20 minutes.

This home can be rented in one of three ways. The first floor has two bedrooms and can be rented as a stand alone rental. The second floor has three bedrroms and can be rented as a stand alone rental. Or you can rent the entire property with all five bedrooms.

All of the beds are excellent quality pillow tops. Each bed has six pillows. The living room has a Granny's Attic style of sofa that makes into a comfortable queen size bed. The apartment is cleaned twice weekly and additional cleaning can be done for an additional price. Many amenities are furnished making less work in packing for you. There is off street parking for up to four automobiles.

We have discounts for various restaurants and attractions. These include Mystic Seaport, Mystic Marine Life Aquarium and the Pequot Museum.

If you wish to kayak you can do this on Poquetanuck Cove only one block away.

We are also know for servicing the Coast Guard Academy and The Naval Submarine base. Both are within an easy ride.

About Carol Matsumoto

We have been in the lodging business since 1994. We also own two bed and breakfasts incorporated under the name Captain Grant's, 1754. All of our homes are on the National Register of Historic Places. Carol retired in 1995 to open our first inn. Ted retired in 2002 when the second property opened. We now work more hours than ever before but thoroughly enjoy meeting all of the people that come to stay at our homes. God willing, we won't have to retire again for many more years.

Carol Matsumoto purchased this house in 2003

Why Carol Matsumoto chose Poquetanuck

We purchased the vacation rental so that Carol's sister from MN could move to CT and have a place to live. Arrangements have changed making Stagecoach Inn now available in it's entirety. The home is four doors down from the bed and breakfast making upkeep and availability to our guest very handy for us.

What makes this house unique

We provide maps and complete concierge service to our guests. We are able to provide catering for a special event and breakfast extraordinaire for an additional price. We also have discounts at area attractions and restaurants.

Very spacious home

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for a large family. The two kitchens have ample space and each family member had their own space. The only suggestion I would have is to improve and upgrade the cookware in the kitchen. Otherwise, a wonderful stay close that is close to many attractions.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the great review. I like your suggestion and plan to follow through with new cook ware and utensils in the next two weeks. Again, thank you. Ted and Carol

The reviews I read about the stagecoach were not great but we needed a place to stay, they came through for us, and we paid $500 for 11 people to stay. When we got in I was pleasantly surprised with cleanliness and roominess. It definitely could use updating but we were there for less than 24hrs so it did it’s job! Ted was very nice upon our arrival. Before arriving it was very difficult to contact them for extra questions on items that I could bring or needed to bring. Once I got ahold of Carol she was very helpful and accommodating. I would definitely rent from them again! Though I would like to honestly tell you that you can fit 13 people in the house if you rent the entire place BUT comfortably we slept 8. Most guys are not up for sharing beds. Ps. Nino’s Pizzeria is about 10minutes away and nice and helpful, not to mention good pizza!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the good review. We are always trying to update the Inn. I would love to hear about any ideas that you have for updating. You can email me direct at The ceilings, walls, and floors are three years old. They were all replaced do to steam when a pipe broke. I really would appreciate your feedback. Carol

Very convenient

  • 5 of 5

We booked the entire house for a trip to Mohegan Sun. House was very charming and spacious for 7 of us. Owners were very nice and helpful with their book for surrounding things to do in their book. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay minutes away from either casino.

Nice place

  • 3 of 5

Lots of rooms in case, some of your party want to read on their own. Beds were comfy. Would have liked a larger table for meals of greater than 10 people. I would stay there again, but would bring my own cooking pots and pans. Generally, it was a good experience.

Kept increasing the price after what we agreed on

  • 1 of 5

The original price they gave me was the highest price listed on the site which was fine until I got to the house Thursday night for my stay and then they repeatedly kept charging me a higher price then what they agreed on. It was also more then 25% higher then whats written on the site. It was really difficult talking to the owner and he ended up charging me a higher price then we originally agreed on.

The house itself was nice, except you need to walk over to another house near by to get the WiFi, there is no WiFi in this house which was also a little deceiving.

If you rent this house out, make sure you get a written copy of the price your renting it for before you arrive.
