Some people were just meant to be innkeepers. Some locations were just meant for a B&B. Tony & Julie Broom have what it takes. On the spur of the moment, I decided my wife needed some "shore" time and I went looking for a hotel or B&B on the shore in CT. I just happened on a listing for this... More

We wanted a quick get away that would not be too far of a drive and after searching the reviews we decided to give Thimble Islands Bed & Breakfast a try. I'm so glad we did. The Innkeepers are welcoming and very charming. The B&B is spotless and the view from the living room/dining room area is breathtaking. Julie &... More

The Thimble Island B & B is absolutely charming. Julie and Tony are the most amazing hosts and we thank them for opening up their lovely home. We were married down the road in Pine Orchard and were so pleased when we found this perfect spot to stay for our wedding weekend. Highly recommend for a romantic weekend getaway!

My boyfriend and I wanted to celebrate our one year together at a special place and we found it at Thimble Island Bed and Breakfast! From the minute we pulled up at the end of the street right into the driveway we knew we picked somewhere beyond special. The two rooms offered were a big draw for us since it... More

Thimble Islands B & B is a wonderful place to stay. My fiance and I stayed just one night on 10/16 but now wished we reserved for the entire weekend. Julie and Tony wonderful hosts and the home is absolutely gorgeous. Cheese, crackers, and wine were served in the late afternoon. Tony made the breakfast which was delicious - he... More

We went spent 2 nights with Julie and Tony at the Thimble Island B&B at the end of July. The location was perfect, the hospitality and accommodation amongst the best. We had a simply fantastic time in Stony Creek - the sunrise and sunset by the jetty looking out to the magnificent Thimble Islands will live long in our memory!... More

We were in New Haven visiting at Yale New Haven Hospital. We decided to stay at a B&B instead of a hotel. This was without a doubt one of the best places we have stayed anywhere in this world. The best hosts that you can imagine, a beautiful home and a breathtaking location. Even though it rained this morning, the... More

We stayed here in early July as a birthday gift to me from our kids. It's this quaint little place directly on the water in Brandford, CT with a view of the Thimble Islands. The inn keepers are warm and welcoming and accommodating. The room was lovely and comfortable. It was more than adequate and more than comfortable, not as... More

The Thimble Islands B&B feels like home and that is the highest compliment. Julie and Tony are the perfect hosts, always willing to help with dinner reservations, recommendations for things to do and see and just anything you need. Our room was so cozy and the view from every side spectacular! Breakfast each morning was amazing as was wine and... More

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
