All of our visits to the Starbuck Inn have been in the winter and leaf peeping season. This time we spent the Independence Day weekend. The wild flower landscaping and green vistas of the Housatonic River Valley made this weekend just as enjoyable. Finished my book under the backyard big maple trees. Laurie, the breakfast chef, is a big part... More

My wife and I stayed 2 nights in Kent at the Starbuck Inn for Mother's Day. It was wonderful. Peter Starbuck is a great host, we instantly felt at home and like we knew him our whole lives. It's well situated for nice, relaxed walks into town (it's right on the edge of town), easy walk to two nice restaurants,... More

Staying at the Starbuck Inn was a wonderful treat. I can’t remember the last time I slept so well. Peter Starbuck’s charming and friendly demeanor along with his attention to detail creates a welcoming atmosphere. Peter also has the gift of story telling and reciting of poetry. If your lucky, he just might make you some of the best blueberry... More

I love the New England feel of Kent, CT and the Starbuck Inn. The Housatonic River valley is charming. The ties to Nantucket, the warm fireplace, the peaceful backyard, the tasteful breakfast, Peter's local tips and banter... It's all good. We've stayed with Peter several times and look forward to returning in the fall.

Comfortable as the Four Seasons but more quaint and charming. We stayed in the large suite at the rear back of the inn. It was gorgeous, well appointed and did I mention comfortable?! This was a weekend we won't soon forget. The lovely garden, the romantic drives my husband and I took, the delicious locally sourced food in the area... More

My husband and I stayed here for Valentine's Day weekend. It was beautiful, clean, and homey. Peter the host was very friendly, fun to chat with, and informative. The room was comfy and nicely kept. Would highly recommend. Close to downtown and easily walkable.

My partner and I stayed for two nights as part of a larger trip across New England. Peter Starbuck was a very helpful and friendly, but unusual host that would seem more at home in NYC bar than in an apron cooking breakfast for his guests. The breakfast was excellent though! The room was nice but a little small and... More

We treated ourselves to this place on a tour of New England and it did not disappoint! From the moment we arrived we were looked after and the situation is perfect. It sits near the edge of the town of Kent which is picturesque. The owner was friendly and helpful - giving us ideas for restaurants and places to see.... More

A lovely New England home within walking distance of town, this is a perfectly situated B&B offering warm hospitality and graceful interiors. Upon our arrival, we were personally greeted by innkeeper, Peter Starbuck, who had prepared afternoon tea and snacks for us to enjoy by the fireside. The downstairs living and dining rooms are elegant and comfortable. The inn accommodates... More

We decided at the last minute to get away for a night and Kent is only 90 minutes from where we live. Peter Starbuck is a great host. He loves what he does and has a lovely home. He told us exactly where to go for a flat hike on the Appalachian Trail - close to the Inn. He greets... More
