5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

We like this bed and breakfast because it is located in a quiet, quaint village. Our room was nicely furnished, very comfortable, and staff members went out of their way to make us feel welcome.

Room Tip: Many rooms overlook a small lake.

We just celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary at the Colonial Inn in Smithville. Wow!!! We had a wonderful time during our 2 night stay. The staff was wonderful and very gracious. We felt like we never left home. We now call the Colonial Inn our home away from home. We visit Smithville a few times a year but never stayed over. We have already booked our room in December to see the light show. Can't Wait!! Looking forward to staying again next January for our 24th! Should have done this years ago :)

Chris M,
Thank you for thinking of us when celebrating you 23 wedding anniversary! We love to be a part of peoples special memories. Our customers are very important to us and I'm glad that you could tell! Coming back in December to see the light show is a great idea, as you know the 120 Christmas trees made out of 50 thousand Christmas lights floating on lake Meone are truly spectacular to see. I just wish we didn't have to wait so long to see you again ;O). Thanks for taking the time to tell others about your experience at the Colonial Inn.

My family and friends stayed in 20 of the 24 rooms and suites in this lovely bed and breakfast last weekend for my daughters wedding at the Smithville Inn. The staff, from my first contact with them last June until the time I checked out yesterday were extremely helpful and attentive to every detail. Sherry at the front desk, and Tracy, the manager, helped me coordinate the room assignments, put welcome baskets in each room for me, and even set up a group breakfast for me in "The Barn". Every phone call I made to them was returned promptly and every request was attended to. My guests had nothing but glowing reports about their rooms and the service. The Colonial Inn is family owned and operated, and they take pride in providing their quests with top notch service. Thank you Colonial Inn for helping to make my daughter's wedding weekend a wonderful experience!!!

I have been going to Smithville for years and never considered staying at the Inn because we live only miles away. When my husband suggested a quick night away for just the two of us, I was right on top of that. I thought hard about where to go and looked up the Inn. After viewing the website and pics of the rooms I knew I found a place.

We stayed in room 201, The Johnson Suite and sweet it was. As you walk up to the suite there is a front porch with rocking chairs overlooking the Greene and shops. This is a two room suite with a fireplace in the sitting room and one in the bedroom. Inside the closet of the sitting room is a coffee pot (including coffee, mugs and sugar), microwave and fridge; excellent amenities to have.

The bedroom has a king bed and is sooooooo very comfortable. Both rooms were beautifully decorated.

The bathroom was huge and has a multi-spray shower with a separate tub for two. The bathroom is very large and again, beautifully decorated.

Included in the nightly rate is an afternoon snack, which we missed, and a breakfast basket with a nice choice muffins, croissants, coffee, juice and yogurt. Perfect to start your day of shopping.

As we were checking out I looked into the Carousel Room located in the main Inn on the lake. This room was also beautiful and with water views.

The staff we spoke with were so very nice and eager for us to enjoy our stay....and that we did!

Can't wait to go back.

We enjoyed the afternoon tea and cookies.They were very good.The breakfast basket of muffins and yogurt were perfect. We loved our stay so much, we are going back in a few weeks with out children and staying at the Barn. They will love the afternoon snack and enjoy all the shoppes.The staff was very helpful in finding a room that would suit our family! Can't wait !

Janice, we can't wait for you to return with your family! We have the hot chocolate and whip cream already to go with a side of cookies. :O) I am sure you are going to love the Barn, w took the same attention to detail and used the same luxurious linens and bedding. The garden filled grounds there are beautiful even in the winter. See you soon.

Stayed in room 204 and it was wonderful! Location was perfect. The room was great with plenty of space and a nice feature of a steam room/shower!! Continental breakfast was picked up in the lobby and brought back to the room...Location can't be beat!! Already booked for the Irish Festival next year!

Room Tip: Most rooms anywhere will be most centrally located!

So glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for booking for next year's Irish festival (glad you got it early). Next year the festival is going to be 2 days so you'll be kicking back and listening to music all weekend long. Thanks again for taking time to let everyone know you likes your stay. We'll have to sneak a treat in your room before your next stay to thank you:O)

Nice rooms, breakfast and a helpful friendly staff in the middle of the Smithville shops. We had a beautiful suite overlooking the water with comfy king size bed and a cute breakfast nook. Every detail seemed to be "just right'. The price was reasonable for the location and the amenities.
