“Wonderful New England Inn in CT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

My husband and I just spent our 30th wedding anniversary at the Mountain Inn in Norfolk, CT, in northwest Connecticut (CT), about three hours from NYC. It could not have been better. The inn sits up on a rise in this pleasant New England town, with a lovely stone patio and porches. Inside is like a work of art: antique Victorian furniture throughout, lovely coffee table books about the surrounding area including the Litchfield Hills to the south and the Berkshires to the north, topped off by owner & artist Dean Johnson's stunning oversized "large flower" oil paintings (also available in giclee). Breakfast was marvelous, and every afternoon we came back to pomegranate juice & cookies (the juice replaced by port at night). Like everything else at the Inn, a great touch. Norfolk the town is a gem: the summer home to Yale's art & music departments, it also boasts "Infinity Hall", a renovated vaudeville theatre cum bistro that now books music groups all summer long, and a terrific 19th century public library (worth just seeing). Practically just across the street is the Battell Chapel, with its original Tiffany windows. Lots of nice hikes all around, too (as others mentioned, Haystack Mt. and Campbell Falls state parks are within a 5-20 minute drive of the inn). Back to the inn itself: items that are important to us: it is exceptionally clean, the beds are firm (with fine linens), and there was no street or other noise at night. Dean and his wife Jean Marie are pros when it comes to B&B hospitality. All in all, a wonderful inn in the country!

Room Tip: All the rooms have A/C. We stayed in "Erastus' Room" (Rm. 2). Room 4 ("Jenny'...

We really enjoyed our recent two night stay at the Mountain View Inn. The innkeepers were very friendly and knowledgeable about the surrounding area. The breakfasts were very tasty and included fresh fruits and homemade rosemary potatoes and quiches. The furnishings were beautiful and it was interesting to read the histories of the various rooms. The outside front porch encouraged sunny lounging and reading although our weekend was too busy to do much of that! I would heartily recommend this bed and breakfast.

This is one of the best bed and breakfast I have stayed at. The owner Dean Johnson goes out of his way to make sure your every need is met. The attention to detail is extraordinary. The place is beautifully decorated with antiques and has a Victorian flare. Dean's artwork is tastefully displayed throughout the inn. While there, don't forget to pet Noelle the house "guard" dog! She is precious and loves to have you pet her and nuzzle her. She will even curl up on one of the many couches with you. She just eats the attention up!!! Dean fixed us a delicious breakfast in the morning with a rice pudding for a starter that was to die for!!

Room Tip: All rooms are exceptional!

Graceful and elegant bed and breakfast, with most delightful hosts, would give anyone a great weekend getaway. The Inn is decorated with antiques and beautiful paintings. The innkeeper is an artist and you can enjoy some of his art work on display. Norfolk is a cute small town, but has much to offer. There are several state parks close to the Inn including Campbell Falls and Haystack Mountain hiking trails. Yale summer music school conducts concerts and performances in summer. Plus Infinity music hall on top of Infinity bistro has concerts on the weekends. We stayed over the weekend and enjoyed our time very much.

My two friends and I went to a concert at infinity music hall. Needed a place to crash for the night. So we ended up finding this inn within walking distance from the concert which was perfect since none of us could drive after. The place was gorgeous, clean, quiet. The service was perfect. We asked for a two bed room and got it. Our other friend slept on the floor (which he planned on anyways) they got him a nice foam thing and blankets and pillows. We were a little obnoxiously loud, so we apologize to anyone who stayed there and heard us. I would definitely go back there again (just not with them, but the wife)
If you need a place to stay if your going to the infinity music hall this is the place or if your just in Norfolk. They had breakfast but we chose not to eat there even though it looked amazing. Way better than a diner or any other place I've stayed at. Thanks again this place gets a 10/10!

Beautiful Inn and the owners were very welcoming and friendly. The room was very nice and the bed super comfortable. The town was small but still very charming. I would stay there again and highly recommend it.

The Infinity is a bit of a haul for us, so my husband and I decided to stay overnight at the Mountainview Inn and make a weekend of it. What a good decision! The inn was very comfortable and the breakfast was amazing! We will definitely be back so we can enjoy their gorgeous stone patio in the warmer weather. As an added bonus, Dean tipped us off to a scenic detour to Campbell Falls up the road. Definitely worth the drive....
