It is rare to see a B & B with such excellent reviews but this is truly an exceptional place. We have stayed in some great places over the years including the top rated (by TripAdvisor’s standards) B & B in Europe. I can really say that Shireen and John’s place ranks up there. You can always tell how good... More

The Silas Robins House is a beautifully restored mansion complete with period furniture, a reading library, and a large porch that overlooks a well landscaped yard with flowers, trees, and shrubs overlooking the Old Wethersfield common area. My wife and I stayed two nights. Shireen and John were our hosts and were like friends from the start. Our room was... More

The Silas W. Robbins House is a gorgeous, meticulously restored home on the Village Green in Old Wethersfield. Almost all the homes on the Green are well-preserved, historic homes, but this one is clearly the jewel in the crown. It has to be seen to be believed. You will not regret staying here! Highly recommend.

I always seek out historic inns, B&B, and hotels when traveling. I have never come across such an incredibly beautiful and breath-taking property. Absolutely gorgeous. I loved my room and breakfast was great. Wish I could have stayed for more than one night.

Reading the reviews and the ratings for this property, it is easy to feel confident that it is a very special place. My husband and I love history and historical houses and we have seen quite a few. However, when we walked in for the first time, I am sure our jaws dropped to our knees. The more we got... More

The moment we laid our eyes on the pictures of this remarkable property we knew that we found the place we would stay in during our visit to the Hartford area. We made a reservation many months in advance knowing that our stay would be nothing less than wonderful, but nothing prepared us to how amazing and beautiful the Silas... More

Recently, my wife and I spent some time at this amazing B&B in the quaint colonial area located just outside of Hartford. To say we were pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. This beautiful old Victorian home has been completely and intricately restored. We were both in awe of what we encountered, from the detailing in the paint on the... More

I originally just wanted a place for a quick stop near Hartford on our way home from Boston. After searching hotels decided I didn't want to be in the city & deal with morning traffic. So when I found the Silas Robbins House on a google search I booked immediately. Even though I could see the online photos I was... More

As many reviews have already stated, this is a fabulous place to stay. If there is a better guest house in USA let alone Connecticut I would love to see it. Everything about this house is magnificent. John and Shireen are perfect hosts and have transformed a fire damaged wreck into a thing of beauty. The appearance of the house... More

This is possibly the best bed and breakfast place I have been to. It is close to Hartford attractions and restaurants. The rooms are fabulous, the common areas beautiful and the grounds just great to walk around. The breakfast might be the best I ever had. I recommend this inn to anyone wishing to stay in this area or just... More
