These folks know how to make a large group (7) welcomed and comfortable. Donna's breakfasts were well balanced to a variety of tastes and all were yummy. John and Donna are engaging, informative and down to earth. The extra bonus is Rosie - the inn's dog/rug. The rooms are comfortable ...their layouts take a bit of getting used to... The... More

Stayed here with friends for a ski weekend. I prefer hotels, but enjoyed my stay. The innkeepers are very welcoming with very good ideas for places to visit and eat. The breakfast was very good and it's spacious enough that if you do not like to chat in the morning it's ok. Stayed in the suite rooms and they were... More

I admit it: I like hotels -- and the more stars the better. That's why, until now, I've never stayed in a B&B. But after three days at Breakfast on the Connecticut, I have seen the light. Aside from the stunning location -- and it is beautiful -- the Inn itself is exquisite. It is light and bright -- large,... More

We spent two nights at this pretty inn, and enjoyed everything about it. We loved that it was in a beautiful setting, far away from any other signs of life. Super clean and very charming and comfortable. The innkeepers, Donna and John, were everything one would hope for, very friendly and helpful and very interesting. Breakfast was absolutely delicious...and healthy!... More

We had a wonderful stay here for a quick summer getaway. The view is spectacular and the inn is very homey, with every convenience you might need. Our kids especially enjoyed the DVD selection. Wifi is available but spotty in the more distant rooms. Linens were soft and pretty. A/C in the room. We had a powder room and a... More

Just enjoyed a holiday weekend at this lovely b&b. The surrounding area is very picturesque with the inn located right on the Conneticutt river. Our room had nice views and was spacious , comfortable and very clean. A delicious home cooked breakfast was provided every morning. The inn keepers were friendly and helpful, never intrusive. We went canoeing (canoes and... More

In February four of us returned to Breakfast on the CT for the third year in a row. It never disappoints. This has become a "relief from cabin fever" weekend andhelps those of us who live in the northeast get through the cold, grey wet days to come. It begins with a smiling welcome from John or Donna. We have... More

I just returned from 3 1/2 days at Breakfast on the Connecticut, sharing the space with at least 20 other women at a quilting retreat. It was the perfect place to be. The rooms are very nice and tastefully decorated. Nice quilts in each room. The innkeepers were so friendly and accommodating. The meals were 5 star, very delicious and... More

I think I had as much fun as I hope the quilters had. And the quilt tops that were sewn were spectacular. Even the small projects were so great that we all asked for kits. Watching the ladies sure got me fired up - I need to start to finish some of my outstanding projects. It was truly a pleasure... More

Breakfast on the Connecticut was quite simply a place we need to go back to. Unfortunately we could only stay one night. The rooms were great and the open window sleeping is unbeatable. Sit on the river with a glass of wine (bring your own) and watch the sun go down-sweet! The owners are extremely nice and the breakfast was... More
