A Romantic Dinner at Cobb’s Mill Inn

Originally published March 10, 2014, this blog post may have been edited for clarity and updated with relevant information and links.

Update: Since 2016, Cobbs Mill Inn is permanently closed. It is unknown if it will ever reopen—the property has been in the spotlight for its ongoing legal disputes.

I had no idea Cobb’s Mill Inn existed until last night when Ryan and I went there for dinner. The sad thing is, I have lived down the street from Cobbs Mill Inn for many years–it’s less than five minutes away in Weston, Connecticut. 
Cobbs Mill Inn sits right by a river and a waterfall–it’s hard to see the whole splendor at night, but the lights illuminate the inn in the dark.  The interior reminded us a little bit of the White Horse Tavern in Newport, but the ambiance of the water gives the Cobbs Mill Inn a more romantic feel. 
If this isn’t romantic, I don’t know what is…

Ryan and I ordered mussels as an appetizer, then Ryan ordered duck and I ordered butternut squash in a maple flavored sauce.

Had I known about Cobbs Mill Inn when I was in high school, I definitely would have gone here for my graduation dinner…
