The owners of the mansion have been decorating with our knots for years. We were invited to take some photos of our knots in action. Jill and Matt hopped in the Knot Mobile and the rest is history.
The Spicer Mansion, in Mystic, up on the hill, where you can stay if you have saved your pennies! A wonderfully restored 1853 gilded age summer home originally designed for entertaining by Captain Elihu Spicer.
Now after many years of ups and downs it was restored in 2013 and reopened in 2016. It is considered a luxury boutique hotel with 8 rooms, numerous 'salons', a restaurant for guests and bikes to roam around Mystic!
There are views of Mystic and surrounding waters from many rooms especially the Belvedere salon at the top of the house with a 360 degree view.

Our keychains for room keys add that nautical touch.
Even if you don't stay here take a walk up the hill from the center of town and check it out. You can also visit the Mystic Noank Library which is across the street.
Mystic Noank Library and the mansion's speak easy.
Complimentary bikes are available for guests. The property has beautiful plantings and a brick patio in the back for dining.
Our monkey fist knots and door stops are enjoying their stay at the inn.
Captain Elihu loved to entertain and included many sitting area salons for his summer guests.

The popular sailor bracelet and a working telescope, you can see for miles!
The current owners, through many area galleries and artists, have placed over 50 maritime and coastal landscape paintings on the walls throughout the Inn. Mostly oil paintings. For the collector, they are available for sale.
To be able to preserve history is a wonderful thing.
Although not a mansion, Jill and Matt have been preserving the Knot Mobile, an antique Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite. Look for them in Mystic this summer and say Hi!
