As soon as I walked into the home I knew it was going to be an unforgettable stay. From the front room to the dining room and sitting room and even all the way up to the 3rd floor where I stayed the home was beautiful and clean. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming throughout the duration of my... More

My mother and I stayed at this lovely guest house. We just loved it. The house is so charming and beautifully decorated. Our room was large, clean, cosy and comfortable with a TV and bathroom. We also really enjoyed breakfast with fresh fruit and eggs and delicious croissants. We can't wait to stay there again!

My sister and I had a wonderful stay at the Farnam Inn. The room was amazing! It was spacious and welcoming and the beds were wonderful. Wilson (cat) was very happy to greet us at the front door and then wandered off doing his catty thing. The next morning, breakfast was lovely and even though we did have to carry... More

We stayed 5 nights here. We were very well looked after by the innkeeper Mrs. Elizabeth Lopez and her two assistants. The inn is charming... the neighborhood is peaceful, about 2 km from the city center... the room was fabulous.... we loved every minute of our stay here...

Stayed for a few days at this property. Beautiful home, tho a bit cluttered. The booking process was done over the phone, efficiently and with considerable courtesy. Checking-in was hassle free and so was checking-out. Pros: free wi-fi, unlimited supply of really good coffee and bottled water, washer/dryer/detergent (at no charge), and a fully equipped kitchen for guests to use.... More

I stayed here for one night at the end of October. It was wonderful! First, what you have read about the beds is true - they are so comfy and soft and simply amazing! Alone, the beds are reason to stay here. Second, our room truly felt like home. It was spacious, had a nice sitting area, a small TV... More

I was on my way from New York to New Hampshire and I missed my train connection at the start of a Holiday weekend. That day was a particularly bad day for my arthritis and I needed a place to rest before continuing on my journey. I checked the phone book, found Farnam House, called - and headed over in... More

Easy access to Yale campus and I91 & I95. Hostess and staff did everything in their power to make us feel comfortable, even in accomodating our bicycles in the garage area. Breakfast was great! And they even accomodated my wheat/gluten allergy! I will stay there again, definitely!

I stayed at Farnam Guest House for one week. It was after two-month research as a visiting scholar in UNC. I was a little exhausted because of being far away from home. To me like that, this place was a home itself. Whenever coming from Yale, Wilson the cat welcomed me. I played piano. The House has a great grand... More
