Looking for a place to take my mom for a mini vacation. Any suggestions in the above areas? Has to be shore, need 2 beds (mom says my elbows are too sharp!). Other places will do as long as it is shore and not more than 2-3 hours drive from NYC. (Not Jersey, too far for me.)

How about our inn-mate in CT? Drawing a blank (bad last 3 days - had to listen to a retired professor who is deaf pontificate/shout) but it is something Irish.

Mystic CT? Cute town, on the water although not really beachy. There are lots of B&Bs and hotels there - we stayed at the Norwich Inn many, many years ago but there are lots of place around there that might be suitable.

On the Bluff on the North Fork of Long Island? She used to be on the forum but I don't think they have any rooms with 2 beds.

A great spot is Port Jefferson, it is the town that the ferry stops from Mystic - beautifull town, great Inn and B&B's on the water - My favorite is Danfords on the Sound.

OK, I don't want to go to Jersey. Plus, I can take the ferry from CT to LI.
I was trying to make the drive easier on my mother. She asked why I wanted to go to CT and me, unable to fib to her, told her to make the drive easier on her. She gave me the Bronx cheer and said she could drive anywhere. So I told her to pick a place. She's looking at Maine.
She drives cross country twice a year, but not alone. I should have just kept my mouth shut about why I picked CT!
