Small house in the small town of Lisbon, on the edge of the forest. You are staying in a small apartment adjoining to the main house. The rooms are very comfortable, and bathrooms are complete with anything that might serve. Spirits, wine and chocolate high quality are free. The breakfast is excellent, served excellent freshly baked muffins, blueberry or plain... More

Myself, my wife and our two teenage kids, 16 and 13, stayed at the Lonesome Dove on our two weeks holiday to the States. Everything good that has been said before is all absolutely true. I have never stayed anywhere in the world where I have felt so at home so quickly. Ruth and Leo are the nicest people I... More

Stayed here for one night en route from New Jersey to Cape Cod. Needed a small detour but worth every minute and anything that gets you off Route 95 can only be good! Once away from the main roads you are immediately immersed in what Connecticut is all about and it really is worth discovering. The 'Lonesome Dove' itself is... More

Excellent location for a weekend away for site seeing, romance or even some gambling. We had a great room, loved the fire place inside. Ruth is very welcoming. You get more for your $$ here than any other hotel I've ever stayed at. It was my boyfriends birthday and Ruth had gotten a small cake for him which was in... More

My husband and I celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary at the Lonesome dove. Leo and Ruth are gracious hosts. Our room was warm and inviting. We would gladly return again. We sat out on our balcony and just enjoyed the quiet, and sounds of nature. The grounds are amazing..Recommended for a quiet romantic getaway....
