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

The B&B was very pleasant with very accommodating hosts. My wife and I stayed there over Christmas 2013. Breakfast was wonderful and the public rooms were very nice. We stayed in the Selena Aston room which was on the second floor. The room had a private balcony looking over the side yard though because of the weather we did not... More

We stayed at the Cornucopia on Friday night, while we were in CT for a Thanksgiving celebration with family. We were in the Admiral Aston room, a very spacious room with a sitting area, desk, deck for use in the summer and a view of the pool. It is actually more like a suite since you enter the room by...
