I needed to attend a workshop in Southbury, CT and the Cornucopia had available rooms at the time. I'm so glad because it turned out to be a very healing stay for me. Christine warmly welcomed me upon my arrival and the rooms I were to stay in were airy and fresh. I was able to sleep peacefully to prepare... More

Along with our friends we spent 2 nights at Cornucopia at Oldfield B&B last week and had a delightful visit. Hostess Christine welcomed us, made us comfortable and gave us many suggestions of where to go and where the best restaurants were located. She also went out of her way to educate us about the wonderful old house and the... More

In September we spent 3 days in Cornucopia at Oldfield B&B. This is a lovely place and Christine an Ed are very interesting and friendly hosts. We got a lot of helpful recommendations what to visit during daytime and restaurants for dinner. We can highly recommend this B&B.

My husband and I stayed for one night in the Rebecca Moseley room. We were warmly welcomed by Christine upon our arrival. She showed us around her beautiful home and even told us some history of the very old house. The room was very spacious but still quaint and cozy. The private shower is down the hall, but there is...

This is a lovely place. The owners, Christine and Ed, are very friendly and welcoming. The house is full of book-lined nooks and crannies. The food is really good and the bed was the most comfortable I'd ever slept in.The grounds are beautiful. There is a nice small pool area. Snacks and drinks are always available. Christine recommended The Good... More

I stayed here for two nights and had the best sleep I've had in a while. The owners are wonderful people. They were very helpful. The house is very clean and the sheets are soft! Thanks from a very tired FO!

We stayed here two nights and had an amazing time. The bedroom was spacious with a small powder room within and a full bath down the hall. The bed was so comfortable I could hardly summon the energy to arise each morning. The hosts, Christine and Ed were very knowledgeable of the area and were very civic minded people. They... More

Comfortable room/bath, delicious breakfasts, serving times flexible. Owners are civic-minded leaders in their town. Beautiful grounds & swimming pool. Helped me store my bicycle inside the attached gardening shop. Another guest was allowed to have a large dog in his room.

Relaxing, comfortable accommodations for family get together. Rooms were much more appealing than chain hotels. Everything was in clean and in good condition. Kids enjoyed the pool and hammock while adults shared family updates over wine and cheese in the afternoon. Only caution is that the stairs are authentic to the building - steep with narrow treads. Wish we had... More

What a fantastic overnight stay. We received a lovely warm welcome from Linny (I hope I've spelt her name correctly) who showed us around the picturesque property. Then we went and had a swim in the pool and lounged out in the beautiful grounds with a glass of wine (there is a small fully stocked bar area which is complimentary... More
