The view from our bedroom was of the back lawn and lovely. The bath consisted of a toilet shower room with a basin in the actual room. There was very little space to place any toiletries but there was a tiny table next to the sink. If you like a huge brunch like breakfast this is the place to be... More

First off, the innkeeper, Peter Starbuck, is a warm and welcoming person with the perfect personality to run an inn. Second, the Starbuck Inn has everything folks look for in a B&B. Third, the town of Kent is right out of a Norman Rockwell painting. Fourth, Peter serves ONLY Anson Mills grits for breakfast--the BEST in the world. If you... More

The Starbuck Inn is exactly what I want in a B&B: elegant room, good bedding, nice mattress, hot water with good water pressure, view to a garden, and windows that open to let in the glorious fresh air. Breakfast too was simple and perfect: delicious, and just enough of good food. The host and his assistant manager offer knowledgeable advice.... More

Spent the 4th of July weekend at the Starbuck Inn and loved it. Great ambiance and service. Beautiful grounds, enjoyable breakfasts and rooms were certainly larger than comparables in the area. I will definitely be back to enjoy the area and more stories with the master of the house.

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.
