We recently spent two nights at the Silas Robbins House and had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. You couldn't ask for nicer hosts. Shereen and John were welcoming, helpful and very friendly. And they have done a phenomenal job of restoring the property. It is, by far, the most beautifully restored period home I've ever seen, not to mention the nicest... More

My husband and I have stayed at many Bed and Breakfast hotels and I would rate this as my favorite and hands down the best experience we have had. The home is charming and beautifully furnished. The owners John and Shireen could not have been more gracious and provided a most delicious breakfast. I would like to especially thank John... More

The rooms are decorated beautifully and breakfast was delicious. My husband has relatives in the area, so this was our second visit. With such great hospitality and beautiful venue, we will certainly be back.

The Silas W. Robbins house is a beautifully restored 19th century house, and a perfect place for a romantic week-end. We celebrated our anniversary there last summer, and my husband's birthday on our first visit. Each room has a unique character. We have stayed in the Jane Robbins and the Silas Robbins Rooms. These are two very different, and equally... More

My husband and I were visiting Connecticut for the first time this month to attend a wedding and had the pleasure of staying at the Silas Robbins House.

We spent one night at this wonderful B&B which has been renovated recently after a fire. Make sure you look through the before and after pictures, because you won't believe the amount of work that the owners faced. Each bedroom is decorated in a different color/theme, and there is an amazing attention to detail throughout the entire house. Breakfast was... More

Dear Shireen and John, We were guests at your magnificent B&B for two days at the 6 and 7 of October. My husband and I traveled the world over; we basically prefer B&B or Relais and Chataaux, whenever possible,( instead of hotels). Most of them are beautiful with its own style and hospitality but: Your House should take the highest... More
