“Beautiful place – beautiful people!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2010

Our stay at Mountain View Inn was a pleasure from the moment we walked through the door to the last drop of Dean’s strong coffee. The B&B is carefully restored and tastefully decorated, impeccably clean, with all the mod-cons such as fast free wifi, nice toiletries, hairdryers, etc
But the real pleasure comes from the owners, Dean and Jean Marie. Their company and conversation makes the experience of staying at Mountain View Inn very special.
We'll definitely be back,

I called the Mountain View Inn to inquire about a room- my husband and I wanted to get away to celebrate our 28th Wedding Anniversary- (we hadn't been away alone in 12 years!!!)- After speaking to Dean and Jean Marie (the owners) I knew this was the destination for us- I felt very comfortable knowing we were in for a lovely 3 days in CT. We arrived and were greeted by Jean Marie-she was warm and very inviting. Dean was beyond helpful with "things to do". We settled into the guest house. We were so comfortable, a fireplace which added to the peacefulness and relaxation in the evenings. The morning breakfasts that Dean and Jean Marie prepared were out of this world- delicious quiche, pancakes, raspberry french toast, everything was presented in such a beautiful fashion and with total elegance. The Inn is decorated with Dean's artwork- or should we say masterpieces. The painting are flowers, butterflies, and more- simply breathtaking, I was in awe of the talent and passion Dean has for his work. The back and side area of the Inn has lovely rooms that are filled with the most charming antique clothing, shoes, handbags, hats- this is Jean Marie's flare and passion for sure. The charm and tasteful way these rooms are decorated is like no other Inn we have visited. My husband and I had a wonderful stay and we will be back again. This was a perfect way to celebrate our first 28 years of marriage. Thank you Dean and Jean Marie and Miss Noel (possibly the sweetest dog we have ever met).

What a location on top of a hill with a wonderful front porch. The hosts were welcoming , friendly .and very helpful. The decor was truly Victorian splendor. The guest room spacious and beautifuly decorated. We had an attached closed in porch that was an extra bonus. The breakfast was exactly what you would expect at a first class bed and breakfast.

We heard that the Mountain View Inn was beautiful, but we didn't realize how exquisite it was until we arrived. Jean Marie and Dean have completely renovated the inn and have paid attention to every detail. Everywhere you turn, you find a unique treasure. The grace and beauty of the inn is really a reflection of the two warm, gracious hosts/innkeepers.

It was wonderful to be greeted with a glass of wine and fresh baked cookies when we arrived. And, it was a treat to wake up and have their home-made pancakes, quiches and yogurt parfaits for breakast. We relaxed by the fireplace and enjoyed a quiet, peaceful weekend away from home.

It was also great to discover some wonderful restaurants in town and of course, Infinity Hall. We got tickets to see Dave Mason and couldn't believe how great our seats were--in fact, every seat in the house is great! So we recommend you check that out as well. If you do, be sure to make a reservation at the Infinity Bistro--the food is outstanding and the restaurant fills up fast.

Oh, and we can't forget Miss Noel, the innkeepers' poodle. Adorable and so well behaved!

The Mountain View Inn is a treasure tucked away in Norfolk CT. We definitely recommend it and plan to see Jean Marie, Dean and Miss Noel there again soon.

My daughter and I had the pleasure pf staying at this lovely Bed & Breakfast after seeing a concert at Infinity Music Hall & Bistro. The inn is located within walking distance to the venue (in good weather) and we found our experience at the Mountainview Inn very positive. The owners were very engaging, warm and knowledgeable about many topics. We were offered to upgrade our room and felt right at home during our stay. Our breakfast was delicious and the conversation was both fun and quite educational.

Although we only spent one night at the inn, the peace and tranquility was total relaxation. The inn is elegant and charming and so are the hosts. Dean and JeanMarie made us feel right at home, with great conversation and service. We will definitely return to that heavenly corner of MA. Ron and Maureen

This was the perfect B&B for me. It was just what I expected and more. The rooms were beautifully appointed with every detail from bath salts to soft cuddly pillows and blankets and the softest bathrobes I have ever seen or felt. Dean and Jean Marie were delightful hosts as was noelle, their very friendly poodle. Jean Marie's store was so much fun, and the fire in the fireplace before breakfast was cozy. Breakfast was superb as was the sherry served in the evening and the brownies and pomegranet juice when we arrived.
I made the mistake of booking the small room without a bathroom but Dean was quickly able to upgrade us to a room with a bath.
I would and hope to go back in a heartbeat.
