We are driving from South Western PA to Acadia National Park in ME in mid July. I'm thinking that a night or two in Connecticut would be good on the way up. If we were going straight through we would take 84. Anywhere that's worth stopping or spending a night or two? We are open to camping, cabins or anything.
If you are looking to stay somewhere quaint in CT, I suggest the Beechtree Cottages in Madison, CT. It's in close proximity (down the street) to Hammonassett State Park, which features lovely beaches and walking trails. They're super cozy.
