“Wonderful Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Silas W. Robbins House while attending a sports event in Hartford. We had the most wonderful experience at this lovely mansion. The impeccable decor, warm and friendly service, and wonderful breakfast were highlights of our visit. The innkeepers were attentive to every detail. It was just remarkable. We look forward to other opportunities to visit again in the future!

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed lovely. We stayed in the Silas Robbins room.

The Silas W. Robbins House is a fabulous place to stay. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and John and Shireen were fabulous hosts. The rooms and decorations were stunning especially in view of the history of the property. I would definitely stay there again given the opportunity.

One room for beautiful then the next! John and Shireen are the perfect hosts. The newly restored historic home had all the modern day comforts with the beauty of the victorian era, Each detail was beyond perfection both inside and out. The breakfast was fantastic, our entire stay exceeded any expectations. Our guest room, Cupids and Roses, was elegant and romantic! I can not wait to return during the holidays!!

Room Tip: all the rooms are gorgeous!

We came to Hartford for a Bruce Springsteen show downtown. I'm so glad I found a gem. We had the most wonderful stay at this beautifully restored Inn hosted by John and Shireen Aforismo. This was a refuge just outside of Hartford. We felt as if we were transported back in time to serene and charming perfection. Two other rooms were occupied by guests, but we had a chance to see all the rooms-including the magnificent ballroom-perfect for a large party event with a Royal atmosphere. Breakfast was warm and wonderful and we had the chance to meet husband/host John who also has a company in Hartford but helps with the Inn. It was Halloween week, so even the outside of the Inn was decorated with witches and goblins. We had one of their smallest available rooms, but it was large and cozy. Our bed was extremely comforable, and the shower/bath clean and nice. Thank you for making our stay in Hartford great!

The drive up to the inn starts off your experience. The inn is stately and grand and the landscaping is impeccable. It is warm and inviting. The inns furnishings are true to the period and in excellent condition. The decorations are beautiful and the bedding was heavenly. We stayed in the cupids and roses room and the ceiling in this room is painted with beautiful clouds, cupids and roses. The artist did an amazing job and you truly feel as though you're in heaven. The inn keepers are pleasant, professional and accommodating. Although the inn does not offer dinner, breakfast was exquisite. Fresh fruit, a choice of eggs or French toast, etc. We have stayed during the Christmas holiday season and the halls and rooms were decorated beautifully. I can't say enough positive things about the inn. We have stayed several times throughout the years and will continue in the years to come...a very special place.

The Silas Robbins house was amazing. The house is beautiful and mixes old time feeling with modern amenities. It was totally renovated recently. It was pristine and the owners are wonderful. They catered to our food allergies for breakfast and really went above and beyond. I would DEFINITELY stay here again if I'm in the area.

We recently spent four days at your beautiful home. We have traveled extensively and stayed at many B & B's in different parts of the world and we can truly say this was one of the best. The home is perfectly appointed down to the smallest detail. The rooms are large and beautifully decorated. The owners were so gracious and helpful. And, the breakfasts were superb. We would highly recommend your home to anyone traveling to that area. Maybe even make it a destination! Phil and Pam Briggs, Houston, Texas
