We stayed one night on a weekend foliage tour of New England. This B&B is in a very unique large brick Tudor-like house. You drive through the gate into the circular drive and are immediately impressed. The lobby and staircase have beautiful original woodwork and the large common areas have interesting architectural features. Our room was nicely decorated and faced... More

My husband & I stayed for a long getaway weekend to enjoy the fall foliage and relax. The inn was the perfect spot for our getaway. It is housed in an absolutely beautiful old mansion that is in excellent condition. The rooms are very nice, clean and comfortable. Cynthia and Dan, the owners, couldn't have been nicer. Not only did... More

Thank you for a wonderful long weekend! We loved the service & the surroundings ~ it was perfect for fall. So many quaint attractions & restaurants one would not consider unless they stayed here. We traveled from Albany, NY through 3 states avoiding highways. 2.5 hours & perfect drive! Looking forward to returning!!!

Me and my husband just stayed in the Manor View Suite for a short getaway after our wedding and everything about it was just perfect! Everything about the room was beyond relaxing. The Manor itself has a very relaxing atmosphere and all the little touches in the room really made us feel welcomed. The jacuzzi in the room is immaculate... More

We spent two nights here and the experience was truly charming. Cynthia and Dante were great company and served up an excellent - and different - breakfast each morning. And anyone with an architectural bent cannot but marvel at their home. Their recommendation of 150 Central for dinner was the icing on the cake! The Manor would make an excellent... More

Chimney Crest Manor was a beautiful historic mansion built in the late 1920s that is impeccably and tastefully decorated with period antiques. The innkeepers made us feel that we were the only guests in the B&B, even though there were other guests there. The personalized service and care of the innkeepers and staff was outstanding. We felt spoiled! The view... More

You might want to consider staying at Chimney Crest Manor instead. This is a wonderful, old country estate (formerly a boy's boarding school) with delightful innkeepers, Cynthia and Dan, who made us feel right at home. Our room was not luxurious, but it was very comfortable and homey. Our only complaint was the water, which took about 5 minutes to... More

My husband and I have stayed in several Bed and Breakfast establishments (Cape May and Philadelphia), and we thought we knew what to expect. Well, Chimney Crest Manor takes the B&B experience to a new level. Because it is situated at the top of a hill in Bristol, CT, you are surrounded by amazing New England countryside. We were warmly...

What a great find in Bristol! Clearly your best option in the Bristol area! This charming and welcoming B&B is not your typical Clarion. The manor, built in the late 1920s is loaded with detailed wood and plaster work and is a step back in time. The innkeeper truly loves her B&B and it shows in the beautiful breakfast and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The owners were very welcoming, friendly & helpful & made us feel right at home. We loved the amazing views over the trees into the distance from both our room & the house itself. The rooms were spacious, clean & very comfortable, especially the beds which gave us the best nights sleep of our... More
