Our innkeepers Julie and Tony are the ultimate when it comes to hospitality! I have never stayed anywhere where I have been treated as graciously as Thimble Islands Bed and Breakfast. The wine and cheese was plentiful and exquisite as were their breakfast options. We recommend the Thimble Island omelet and creme brulee French toast for breakfast. We stayed in... More

An amazing time - far exceeding expectations! Outstanding location, on the water with gorgeous views from every room; the food was delicious; and our hosts were lovely and very accommodating! This was our first time at a B&B, and we didn't want to leave.... Highly recommend!

My partner and I recently celebrated a big birthday at Thimble Islands B&B. We couldn't have had a better stay. Julie and Tony are marvelous hosts - and wonderful company, over wine and cheese and whenever we happened to cross paths. Breakfasts are scrumptious and elegant. Enjoy the breathtaking views and the lovely nature trails. Such a serene getaway -... More

Our 2 days at Thimble Island B& B were a delight. Great room, great scenery excellent food and wonderful hosts in Julie and Tony. Their hospitality was exceptional. We loved waking up to the island and water views and the walking in the area was very scenic. This stay was a highlight of our overseas trip of 4.5 weeks to... More

We actually found this place through a recommendation in the Connecticut Trip Advisor Forum - whoever you were that suggested it to someone - THANK YOU! Julie and Tony were fantastic hosts and we really enjoyed getting to know them over wine and cheese in the evening. The location is just gorgeous - extremely peaceful overlooking the Thimbles Islands (a... More

Julie & Tony Broom are caring and wonderful innkeepers that my husband & I have grown extremely found of. We stay here every year in April for a week (wouldn't stay any other place, including our families' homes.) We look forward to this very enjoyable visit. We appreciate and are grateful to Julie & Tony for caring, stimulating, interesting, informative... More

My husband and I stayed at the Thimble Islands B&B just last weekend for our wedding anniversary ( and first night away from our 5.5 month old baby)! We loved it and definitely want to return! Julie and Tony were great hosts and we loved talking with them in the evening while enjoying the yummy cheese and wine they offer.... More

Our stay at the Thimble Islands B&B could not have been any more perfect. From the amazing views from every window, to Julie and Tony's warm hospitality, to the perfect breakfasts, to the wine and cheese each afternoon (where Julie and Tony joined us for some really great conversation)--it was simply a perfect stay.

We stayed here for four nights in October 2014, having picked the site off the internet because of the high recommendation of previous visitors on Tripadvisor.... and it was the best move we could have made. There are not only breath-taking views here, and clean, updated, comfortable surroundings, but the hosts Julie and Tony Broom are beyond accommodating. From wonderful... More

I discovered this B and B months prior to our visit and decided from the photos alone this was where I wanted to stay for our anniversary. We enjoyed the egret room, located at the end of the house, for 3 nights. Breakfast was lovely, enhanced by being able to eat on the enclosed patio with views of the water... More
