This is my third time staying at the Daniel Rust House B&B. I've stayed in all of the large bedrooms, and during this past visit, in the Maybell Cottage. I absolutely love the cottage! I'm really surprised that the previous review on this page, regarding the cottage, has such a negative input because I could not disagree anymore. While all... More

We did not spend a night in the Daniel Rust House Bed and Breakfast. As always, we review the room and other rooms available upon arrival prior to committing to the stay. Since the room had a musty, mildew, and fireplace odor, we did not want to stay there. It had a small noisy a/c in the window that did... More

The couple in the above review have made several allegations that must be addressed as they simply are not true. We did speak with his wife..one time at the time of reservation..She did inquire if there was a musty odor and she was told that upon our sensory evalution there was none present. This was the extent of our communication... More

Lovely maintained home, with gracious hosts, and comfortable beds. We stayed here because my son had a swim meet at nearby UCONN, so we weren't able to sample their breakfast because of how early we had to get up, but they were so kind in accommodating us in the early morning. Definitely will be back! Also, they are dog friendly,... More

The Daniel Rust House is just fabulous. The breakfasts are amazing along with the wonderful owners. They go out of their way to make you feel so comfortable and welcomed. It is a beautiful antique colonial that allows you the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of an old home and still feel the comfort and convenience of today. The B... More

This historic B & B is a wonderful place to visit for visiting UCONN parents. The place is 15 mins away from campus and Germaine and Cathy are wonderful hosts! The home is a real showcase and beautifully decorated each season. The rooms are clean and comfortable, breakfast was plentiful and beautifully done in the dining room, and the grounds... More

My partner and I had not seen each other in five months and we could not have chosen a better place to spend some much needed time together. We arrived with our miniature schnauzer, Lucy, and we were all were treated like we had come home. The house is beautiful, the grounds are beautiful, and the ladies of the house,... More

Our recent stay (11/13) at The Daniel Rust House was more than we expected. We were visiting from North Carolina to be married in my home state of CT, therefore this was a long weekend that could have been filled with stress. Nothing could have been farther from the truth! From the time of their first warm greetings, the gracious... More

Was up at UConn and decided to stay here for a little something different. So glad I did. I travel a lot for my job and for pleasure. I am discerning in my accommodations. The house is quite historical and comfortable. The food at breakfast is good. The service is personal. The proprietors really try hard to please. Try it,... More

We stay at the Daniel Rust House whenever we visit CT relatives, so we've visited several times over the past three years. We have never been disappointed. Kathy and Germaine are superb owners/hostesses. They are very knowledgeable about the CT area and will gladly recommend places of interest and restaurants. Guests need to watch carefully for the entrance to the... More

My husband and I stayed at the Daniel Rust House from 12/28/13 through 12/29/13. It was one of the best experiences either of us has ever had when staying at a b&b! We stayed in the Anna White room, which was beautifully appointed. In fact, the whole house is this way. Cathy and Germaine welcomed us in and we immediately... More
