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

We stayed here for only one night and feel lucky that we had that opportunity. Julie and Tony Broom "swept" us away with their attention to detail, hospitality, kindness, great food (definitely have the Thimble Island omelet), great wine and cheese too! Their home is beautiful and when you are guests there you feel like it is your home too!... More

We spent 2 nights in the egret room. This room has a king bed, fine furniture and a wonderful bathroom/shower. The bedding was first-class. The room overlooks the water. The B&B is in a private home located at the end of a dead-end road. It's a very quiet area. The home is exquisite in all respects. The hosts, Julie and... More

If you have the opportunity to stay at the Thimble Island B&B with Julie and Tony consider yourself Royalty for having both being in a fabulously unique location and treated to the most superb and detailed attention possible for hospitality. It was a great anniversary get-a-way and they were very accommodating to our needs. Thank you so much! with love,... More

My girlfriend Lauren and I (mid-late 20's) spent a lot of time trying to decide on a great east coast location and accommodations for a Valentine's weekend trip. Coming from NYC, we were looking for a place that was very relaxing but also offered options for activities (day trips, walks, etc.). We chose the Thimble Islands based on the quality... More

Combine an immaculate home, loaded with art and artifacts, luxurious bedroom and bath suite, fine linens,....and a served, elegant breakfast. Add hosts, who even for one night, make you feel totally relaxed and as if you are family. Get ready for views of the Thimble Islands at sunset and morning dawn that you'll never forget. GPS does not work well,... More

My wife and I stayed at the Thimble Island B&B during a mini-vacation that combined a visit to our son at Yale with outdoor excursions for us. Everything you have read on previous five-star reviews is accurate. Julie and Tony are gracious, knowledgeable hosts. They offer help -- directions, restaurant recommendations -- but are not overbearing. Their breakfasts are splendid,... More

Location - on the water overlooking the Thimble Islands at the end of a private driveway with plenty of parking. Great views from every room. We fell asleep to the lapping sound of gentle waves and awoke to the noise of the gulls circling the creek for breakfast. Short walk to beautiful Trolley Trail (long boardwalk/bridges over salt marsh with... More

Our stay at the Thimble Island Bed and Breakfast was great in every way. The breakfasts were delicious and we enjoyed them while looking at the fantastic view of the Thimble Islands and Long Island Sound. It's only a short walk to several great restaurants and to the Thimble Island boat tour. What was best - the hospitality of Julie... More

I wanted to take my wife to special location for her birthday: The Thimble Islands B &B in Stony Creek is the place to go. Julie & Tony were extremely friendly and made us feel welcome right from the moment of our arrival. The Heron Room was clean, well-appointed and had an ideal view of the water. They offered us...
