Before we jump into our favorite and most recommended Airbnbs in Mystic, allow us to make a suggestion…

You’re probably coming to Mystic for its charm and ambiance. You’re definitely coming for the world-class foodie experience. Are you also coming for the shopping? Maybe. 

There are lovely shops in downtown Mystic and Olde Mystic Village, but I’d venture to guess that you might appreciate the convenience of having some things, such as the original, iconic Mystic hoodie or sweatshirt shipped to your home. And for that we highly recommend having a look at our online store. Just Mystic has great gifts for you and your family and friends, and online shopping means there’s no need to worry about jamming more things into your suitcase for the trip home.

Okay, now that you’re coming to Mystic, where should you stay? Here are our top five most recommended Airbnbs for Mystic. 

Let’s start with the most unique, Mystic’s first and only Airbnb yacht.

1. Mystic Grace

Located at the Mystic Downtown Marina, you’re sleeping on the water in a yacht, just a five-minute walk from the heart of downtown. You can also throw a stone to one of the oldest pubs in America, Captain Daniel Packer Inne. The yacht sleeps six year-round with new heating and air conditioning. Enjoy some of the best views in town from the salon and deck.

2. Harbor View Landing

Nestled along the banks of the beautiful Mystic River, Harbor View Landing combines classic New England charm and modern luxury for a coastal retreat across eight properties, such as the Nantucket Waterfront Cottage. Here you can experience Mystic’s authentic New England charm that has led to its world-wide fame. Harbor View Landing is home to family-friendly attractions, stunning scenery and a heritage of whaling, sailing, and shipbuilding. Whether you’re searching for an exclusive celebration space or just a quiet romantic getaway, Harbor View is your spot.

3. Great Gull Island Properties

Like Harbor View Landing, Great Gull Island offers a number of properties to enjoy Mystic’s charm and ambiance, many of which are also on Mystic River just a few minutes walking distance to all of the culinary experiences that brought you here. Our favorite is the Captain’s House. Hard to get any closer to Mystic’s heritage than by staying on Captain’s Row (Gravel Street) in a former captain’s home!

4. Mystic Vacation Rentals

Here again, like Harbor View Landing and Great Gull Island, you have multiple properties to fit your needs. And if you’re looking to live in history, this is as close as it gets. We love the 1807 Williams Home, a masterpiece of nineteenth century craftsmanship.

5. Victorian Townhouse in Downtown Mystic

Finally, if you’re looking for a bit of luxury, this home is for you. The highlights of the property are two elegant bathrooms, one featuring a copper soaker tub, and the other featuring marble tiling and a walk-in Delta rain shower. The home also features a gourmet farm-style kitchen, and has its own separate, direct entrance. Pets welcome for a fee. 

If you’re looking for a smaller home, this owner offers another highly rated property in downtown Mystic
