The innkeepers were very accommodating, helpful and nice. It was great talking with them, and they had great suggestions about things to do in the area. The house was built in the 1800s, and with only two guest rooms, you will have great privacy and much solitude.

I make a biennial trip to visit relatives in Florida from my home in the Berkshires; Bradley International Airport near Hartford has the only nonstop flight that is not in a congested metropolitan area. Previously, I had stayed at some chain hotels the night before my early morning flights, but I had never felt comfortable leaving my car there for... More

This is a great review, it sounds like a place I would love to stay also. My wife Kim and I try to help out where and when we can. For the trip to the airport the timing happened to be just right in between going to or coming home from work (both of us work outside the B &... More

Kim and Wayne are friendly and at your service. Breakfast was tasty and the room was comfortable. I stayed at Truman Gillet House B & B in order to attend a funeral and it was conveniently located to get to both the funeral home and the church. This was my second or third time staying at Gillet House and I... More

We spent two delightful nights in the Connecticut suite at the Truman Gillet house in Granby, CT. A lovely, well appointed bedroom with a very comfy bed; a large two-sink bathroom with a great oversized whirlpool bath. Great food, friendly innkeepers and even a perfect, friendly little dog.

We arrived after a harrowing snowy drive from Northern NH to this wonderful homey B & B. Wayne and his dog Ali greeted us, and we settled in right away. We were going to a family party in Windsor, CT and this place was an easy drive. Coffee and breakfast the next morning prepared by Wayne and Kim was plentiful... More

I can't say enough good things about this B&B. We stayed for a week while visiting family in the area and loved every minute. The house is charming with lots of thoughtful details. The hosts, Wayne and Kim, were gracious and made us feel right at home. Not only were the breakfasts bountiful and delicious, but they cheerfully accommodated our... More

My husband and I stopped at the Truman Gillet House B&B as we made our way north on a cycling trip. We had a very nice stay.

Gorgeous room, comfy bed, great breakfast, interesting proprietors. If you like to chat it up, this is the place for you & if not, you can always retire to your room. Wayne & Kim were very friendly & accommodating, even providing menus from numerous local restaurants to help with our dinner plans.
