This was my first ever visit to a BnB after hearing my girlfriend rave about them from the beginning of our relationship. The inn is located in beautiful Ridgefield, CT. The town is quaint, beautiful, friendly and feels like new England even though it's only an hour from NYC. We loved the village and also explored two nearby state parks which were beautiful. We went up to CT for the weekend before thanksgiving and the weather was warm (70s in November). When we arrived at the inn we were pleasantly surprised at how large yet beautiful it was with ample parking on site. When we arrived the hostess was warm and welcoming and took us to our room on the 3rd floor. It was a 3 floor walkup but a nice room. The tv was small, but the room and bathroom were large. We quickly realized that it was going to be a warm weekend. The ac didn't cool the space and the bed was very uncomfortable and felt like it had failing springs. We were up most of the nite between the bed, heat, and flickering bathroom lamp. Breakfast the next day was ok but rather Spartan. I had cold cereal and my girlfriend had oatmeal. The server smiled, but it felt like we were annoying her by coming down near the end of the breakfast period. Overall, I'd say that the inn was just a little too big for it's own good and too impersonal. It's not the idealistic " eating with the family" BnB that you think of. They did give us a nice map of the local area and a good suggestion for dinner. We might have had a better experience in a different room - the inn was a 4 overall and our room was a 2.

As part of our complimentary continental breakfast, we do offer freshly squeezed orange juice, blueberry muffins and sour cream coffee cake. Throughout most of the year, we offer a fresh fruit cup as a gift from the house.
