My wife and I like to travel with another couple and stay at B&Bs wherever we go. We've stayed at some wonderful places and some that were not so wonderful. Of all of them, Lily House in Suffield, CT, is probably the best overall. The old house, within walking distance of shopping and a variety of eateries, is beautiful, well kept and carefully decorated. The bedrooms are charming with spacious private baths while the common areas - like the living room, den and dining areas - are inviting and comfortable. Lorraine, the charming proprietor, was probably the best part of this outstanding package. Her service was unlike any that I'd experienced in other B&Bs around the country. It wasn't just that she offered a great facility and good service, it's that she made us feel as guests in her own home. Lorraine seemed always to be looking for ways to enhance our stay whether it was offering snacks while our party chatted in front of the fireplace or, having heard of our plans for the day, finding us coupons from her stash which saved us over $20. She suggested places to eat in the area and then, after we made our choice, she arranged for our reservations. The food she prepared was excellent and was served in a creative and attractive manner. Freshly baked confections were always available as were a variety of coffees, teas, soft drinks and beer. The place was just great and the price was reasonable.
There's a lot to love at Lily House and I encourage you to give it a try. It's one of the best.
We'll be back!
