We stayed only one night here on the last night of our 'New England in the Fall' anniversary trip We couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Everything about it was simply perfect. From the elegantly decorated and refurbished property to the caring and professional attitude of the owners, the place was perfect in every respect. It is difficult... More

Wow!! The Silas W Robbins House B&B is absolutely amazing! A beautiful building with very lovely hosts. Our spectacularly decorated room was comfortable and clean and it had a picturesque view of Broad Street. Shireen's traditional New England breakfasts were also very delicious, The B&B is a 5 minute walk from Old Wethersfield, which has some very nice shops, bars... More

This B&B is just off the highway, so very convenient. It was lovingly restored. Breakfast was great. The owner was so helpful that, when the taxi was late, he prepared to drive the guest to the airport. Besides the usual amenities, it had tv and central air. Highly recommend it.

We had a splendid time on our recent visit to this extraordinary period B&B. Attention to both the broad experience and the smallest detail earmarked our time at the Robbins House, and we left very happy with our choice. We recommend it without hesitation.

My husband and I stayed at the Silas W. Robbins House while visiting relatives in Wethersfield. The décor, cleanliness, service, and overall atmosphere of this B & B are overwhelming. We have stayed many places world-wide, but the Silas Robbins House beats them all. Bravo to John and Shireen! We will definitely be back.

The Silas W. Robbins House is a fabulous place to stay. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and John and Shireen were fabulous hosts. The rooms and decorations were stunning especially in view of the history of the property. I would definitely stay there again given the opportunity.

We came to Hartford for a Bruce Springsteen show downtown. I'm so glad I found a gem. We had the most wonderful stay at this beautifully restored Inn hosted by John and Shireen Aforismo. This was a refuge just outside of Hartford. We felt as if we were transported back in time to serene and charming perfection. Two other rooms... More
