We are two couples that stayed for one night. Both of our bedrooms were lovely, clean, quiet and warm with comfortable beds. The house is beautiful with lost of charm and many pretty things and artwork. It is very old and the floors are uneven, but to me that's part of the charm. Breakfast was delicious and expertly served. But... More

I am not sure why TripAdvisor list this as $85-$95. Our room cost $165 plus 15% tax, off-season. I suggest you google their website or call to ask. The B&B is cute, heavily furnished with antiques and nick-nacks, in a fairly consistent and tasteful way. Breakfast was a tasty omelette. Host was polite and businesslike; not overly chatty (fine by... More

The Chester Bulkley House has a great location – within steps of many of the Wethersfield attractions and historical homes. Just about every nook and cranny of the house is decorated with antiques (or more recent antique-looking items), such as an old shaving set, china, etc. The decorations give the house a real character that you can’t get at chain...

My husband and I stayed at the Chester Bulkley House Bed and Breakfast after our wedding reception at the Keeney Memorial Cultural Center of Wethersfield Historical Society. It was perfect for us as we just walked from our reception next door to our room. Tom was completely accommodating! He was super flexible! My bridesmaids snuck into the room with Tom's... More

We booked a room here thinking we would have a romantic get away before my surgery. It was booked site unseen off the internet. We were hoping for a fireplace and bathtub in our room, but there was nothing like that in our room. The bathroom had a standup shower. It was very dusty & drafty in the room. We... More

I've stayed in several B&B's around the Northeast, and my wife and I continue to return to the Chester Bulkley House. It has become a second home to us. Everything from its location in beautiful historic Wethersfield to its period furnishings to Tom's amazing breakfasts and his excellent hostmanship woo us back time after time. We have never had a...

The B & B was very conveniently located for walking around the historic area of Wethersfield. We stayed there for two nights. The air conditioning made the room comfortable and the bathroom was clean, though small. Unfortunately I could not plug my hair dryer in in the bathroom but had to use it in the bedroom. A chair in the... More

Attractive house in historic village not far from Hartford, where we toured the Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe houses. Wethersfield is lovely town in which to walk around, looking at the old houses. Innkeeper served delicious, beautifully presented breakfasts in a dining room with fireplace and candle sconces. Our upstairs bedroom adjoined a sitting area where we could read... More

This bed and breakfast is in a historic house which is furnished with nice antiques, but overdone with potpourri and decorative objects that did not enhance the B&B's charm or comfort value. The innkeeper was polite and businesslike--he ran our credit card and took our bags to the room, but didn't offer any refreshment (despite the fact that the room... More

An authentic 1830's house lovingly maintained and decorated with Victorian antiques - beautiful, and very romantic. Comfortable bed. Small private bathroom with a comfortable shower. (Don't expect large bathrooms in a house this old - I'm surprised they can shoehorn bathrooms in at all. Floors sag a little, also due to the age of the house.) No TV, but with... More
