Waterfront dining and interesting doors, my favorite recipe for a perfect afternoon. After a doctor’s appointment for my father in New Haven, we drove east along the Connecticut shore in search of waterside dining. As good fortune would have it, we happened across the Fresh Salt Restaurant at the Saybrook Inn & Spa.

While the skies looked a little gloomy that day, the weather was quite comfortable for dining alfresco. After a satisfying lunch, we took a stroll around the Inn, and it was love at first sight when I spotted two stunning homes with doors galore, the Tall Tales, and Three Stories Guest Houses. I’m definitely keeping them in mind as a perfect place to stay for my next summer-time visit to Connecticut.
