Convenient to UConn for all visiting parents. With the owners' impeccable eye for detail and talent in the kitchen, a stay becomes a delightful spring back in time and every day begins with the biggest, tastiest breakfasts on the east coast. We have stayed in all three rooms in the main house, and each has unique charms and comforts - soft, plush bedding; a view of the grounds and gardens; bird songs; a jacuzzi; small items and large furnishings that fit beautifully in with the period of the house. The hosts are warm and welcoming, always making you feel like a guest, not an imposition. Last weekend, our three breakfasts included airy popovers, banana nut waffles, eggs benedict, chive&cheese omelet, mango pudding, quiche lorraine, and an assortment of coffee cakes and fruits with imaginitive sauces, such as blood orange and liqueur infused. In the winter, the fire is as warm as the hosts, and sitting on the comfy couch in front of it takes all the cold off a Connecticut winter night. There are excellent local restaurants, a great Farmer's Market, and walking paths. In sum, staying at the Danial Rust house is a perfect mini-vacation.
