The Bee and Thistle sits nestled on five acres bordering the Lieutenant River, Old Lyme, Connecticut. The Inn is available as a large private guest house or by the individual room on a bed & breakfast basis, daily, weekly, or monthly. The nine guest rooms are adorned with elegant accents, each individual in design. You’ll find fine linens, down pillows and a private bath. While you relax as our guest, there are many pleasant diversions just minutes away. You can choose from local museums, galleries and concerts. Or, as an alternative, you can enjoy shopping at one of the many antique and specialty stores in town. We hope you enjoy your stay and we look forward to helping you plan your next visit. Innkeepers Linnea and David Rufo.
