Enjoy a picturesque 15 minute drive to the Brimfield Antique Show! We are just 5 minutes to Staffordville Lake and 5 minutes to downtown Stafford Springs. Many acres of Wildlife Refuge and Parks just a stone's throw away from the Inn.
Our home is on the original town green and still boasts many of the original details from 1778. Our home has wide plank floors, hand carved chair rails, two of the bedrooms boast barreled ceilings and one a mullion window! Our prices are per room rates.
During the Brimfield show we provide a large continental buffet with "to go" bags and coffee cups for those that aspire to the sunrise opening at the show. If you are interested in a seated breakfast during the show we are happy to provide a hot breakfast as well upon request.
During the winter months we used two wood burning stoves that provide a warm, welcoming environment. While preserving the details from the 1700's we also provide modern amenities like free cable and WiFi. Our family loves to host guests and have had guests from as far as New Zealand, Dubai, Paris and Norway to name a few.
We also have hosted many local folks who love to get away from the quad cities that surround us. Hartford, CT , Boston, MA, Springfield, MA and NYC, NY are within 40 minutes to 3 hours from our home.
We are a family run New England get away rich in history and landscape in every season. Since we raise our three children in our historic home we also accept guest with children of all ages which is very rare in the B&B world. We hope you or perhaps you and your family will visit and become as enchanted by our quaint little town as we have grown!
Some of the decor in our home is for sale. I love to have a piece from our local antique shop rotating at the Inn to change up our decor. We also usually have a few photos for sale and maple syrup, of course! We have 5 sugar houses in town and love using and supplying their products!
We have two rooms routinely available and two others if we have a large party staying for a minimum of two nights or longer.
We also host small events and gatherings.
Hope to meet you soon!

Interazione con gli ospiti
We interact as much or as little as our guests want. On weekends my children are often the servers unless a guest would rather not interact with them. I discuss this upon making reservations and have found most travelers love interacting with our family run business. On occasion the kids and I are with my brother in Boston or New Hampshire and my husband will be your host. He is a Uconn professor and was "my waiter" when we met so I know the service is top notch whether I am here or not! If you are coming with children I often open our playroom to them based on their age. We accept and welcome all children!
Altre cose da evidenziare
The Brimfield Show is only 15 minutes drive and many of our guests find staying here helps them to decompress from the frenetic pace at the market. We have stored and shipped things in the past for reasonable fees based on the size and duration of storage.
We are a non smoking family. We do allow smoking in the driveway away from the deck and backyard due to the health of our children. If it is late at night smoking on the deck in the winter months is permitted. We have three guest rooms with varying prices. We have a low and high season pricing schedule that is posted on our website (URL HIDDEN)
My family and I moved from urban Chicago to rural Connecticut in the summer of 2011 so that my husband could continue his career as an academic at the University of Connecticut. My main concern in making such a huge life change was how to feel connected to the rest of the world while living in a small provincial New England albeit it charming town. Well, it took some adjusting but we have settled into our New England Bed and Breakfast life quite well. Our guests have helped our family continue to feel a part of the global world in a similar way we had become accustom in our urban Chicago setting and our neighbors have welcomed us with open arms. We welcome children of all ages as we ourselves have three. Our home is unique in that is on the original town green and still boast many or the original details of the late 1770's such as wide plank floors, hand forged nails and barreled ceilings in two of our guest rooms.
We have had many guests over this past (almost year) many of whom have become good friends so we have adopted the previous Innkeeper's mantra, "You arrive as guests but leave as friends!" We hope to meet you soon.
