Nice, but needs some care. First, the positive: breakfasts were delicious, plentiful and catered to any food issues. The outdoor hot tub is hot, strong and surrounded by nice stones. Lovely room with comfy bed and beautiful linens. Gracious bathroom. Now the not so positive: It was a little depressing, living room dark and poorly lit. Front steps cracked, shower heads green with lime, outdoor furniture rusted or torn. The “balcony” was an old deck accessed through the closet. And there is nothing around for miles. The innkeeper made an effort but it seemed like too much for one person to handle alone. It was a romantic weekend, but not quite the luxury as advertised.

I have recently stayed at Rock Hall (once for business and a return visit for pleasure). It is a lovely, huge house that is perfectly and eclectically decorated. I was a little worried as I drove down the street from the main highway, that the house would never appear! But there it was at the end of the driveway, massive front door beckoning:>} Despite the chilly weather I couldn't help but linger in the circular drive to admire the large trees and appreciate the identifying placards in front of them. I noticed the tennis courts and orchards, vowing to return in in different seasons. My host (Michael) was charming and welcoming. He is an excellent bartender and chef. My room was sumptuous and had amazing views of the woods and grounds. I felt safe and cossetted. I look forward to my next visit! And at the risk of calling attention to a crank-pot, I must say that as a single female traveler, I experienced nothing of what a previous reviewer noted. Sadly, I think someone was having a very bad day and needed to take it out on someone..:>{

Last week I had one of my most memorable stays ever in the very unique Rock Hall. The inn sits on 23 acres and I would have enjoyed exploring the grounds had the weather been more hospitable. Michael Somers, the host, made up for the chilly damp weather with his warm welcome. Sitting with a cocktail and delicious nibbles in front of a awe-inspiring fire made me feel instantly at home and indeed transported to another time. The room was large but somehow cosy too...I intend on revisiting in warmer weather... After dinner and a film in a neighbouring town, I returned to a fire ready in my room. Very special..Micheal asked if I might like to watch a film in the inn’s cinema...complete with freshly made popcorn and a glass o wine..perfect... My room was charming...huge bathroom...even sheets and towels were tastefully coordinated...add the fire and the silence, I slept wonderfully... Would’ve gladly lingered several days, but alas could not. Michael sent me off with a breakfast he prepared, complete with fresh squeezed orange juice from a French press! Do treat yourself and notice such details as the wall coverings and art and glassware. I will return in the spring for a secon look

Originally, I was booked at this lodge for three days for business travel but due to the events that happened at this lodge I cut my stay short and checked in immediately at another nearby Marriot hotel for $150 cheaper. The Owner / Caretaker is extremely CREEPY (see bullet 5) and CHEAP. Items not mentioned on website: 1. There is no spa or true chef. 2. Only drink tap water. 3. Don’t touch the thermostat. 4. Linens and towels smell musty and old. 5. Expect footsteps near your door or your door to be opened at night. 6. Expect the Owner / Caretaker to be upset if you don’t drink his homemade orange juice or eat his food. 7. Don’t expect the Owner / CareTaker to look professional at anytime during your stay. 8. The house was dirty and there was an abundance of personal belongings, including outdated technology. After my departure, I found out that this lodge has been up for sale for the past 4 years and explains the sad state of affairs of the house but nothing can explain away the SCARY Owner.

My wife and I have always enjoyed B&B road trip destinations throughout Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, the Finger Lakes, etc. Happening upon Rock Hall Luxe Lodging's website, we were intrigued with it's history and decided to celebrate our 49th anniversary in relatively nearby upper NW Connecticut...so happy we did! We caught a perfect "top down" convertible drive day, pulled into the circular driveway, and once thru the front door we were immediately transported to another place in time. Period pieces in every direction! Truly wondrous. We were warmly greeted by Michael, the innkeeper, and he graciously helped us with our luggage to our immaculate second floor Chamber #3 (just 5 rooms in total adds to the feeling of exclusivity and calm). Trust me, Michael is not your everyday innkeeper, and I mean that in the most complimentary way. He showed us all around this National Register estate, pointing out so many incredible details too numerous to now mention. He rightfully fancies himself a "mixologist" (try the Vesper, ala James Bond), but his culinary talents are also "a cut above." Happy hour poolside drinks (included!) were accompanied by his fancifully delicious home made hors d'oeuvres. Breakfasts are sumptuous--fabulous fritatas, amazing gravlax, the freshest fruits and freshly squeezed OJ, etc. All beautifully plated. What a way to start your day...no need for lunch. Dinner is not served, but Michael referred us to fabulous nearby restaurants for each evening of our 4-night stay. He's a foodie, and won't steer you wrong. You'll feel "at home" with Michael, while watching him do his thing in the kitchen. You'll feel pampered lazing by the beautiful stone edged pool (choose from a hundred different CD's to fuel the multi speaker system). Frankly, you won't want to leave. But...leave you will, with a smile on your face, determined to return. D. Slater New City, NY

We rented Rock Hall for a few days over Christmas as a family retreat. The beautiful snow storm we had definitely added to the country charm of the place and I'd say that overall we had a very nice stay. I particularly enjoyed long walks in the woods on the winding trails that had been blazed. But that said, I also kind of felt that I was staying in someone's rather odd antique collection rather than a genuine gilded-era mansion. The house's decoration just didn't quite work together as a coherent theme, particularly with outdated technology spread throughout the place (CD players, DVD players, 90's movie DVDs) that suggested an unwillingness to upgrade the facilities rather than curation. I stayed in the penthouse, which inexplicably was decorated with what seemed to be IKEA modernism, very much in anachronistic contrast to the style of the rest of the house. I was also a bit turned off by the sheer amount of personal items kept in the house, including dirty shoes and shelves full of old electronics which were clearly not there for the benefits of guests. Even the walk-in refrigerator was stuffed full of what I assume were the owner's food items. It's possible that we had the off-season experience of Rock Hall Luxe Lodging and that a summer-time stay is an entirely different animal. I certainly would have relished lounging poolside with the beautiful view of the forest. But even so, it did seem that that a bit more effort could've been put into making the accommodations more hospitable.

My wife and I went on a last minute getaway and disoivered Rock Hall. Beautiful, funky gilded age mansion redone very well. Our room (Chamber 2) and bathroom were beautiful. We had a couples massage int he room that was very relaxing. Michael is a great and funny host who really shines with his culinary treats. We had shrimp with cocktails that evening in front of the great fireplace. Then breakfast the next day was superb in the grand dining room. Michael makes his own gravlax and pickled salmon, which were great, plus a frittata, in addition to fruit, pastries, etc. Would highly recommend. An extra treat we discovered a few minutes away was Infinity Hall, a gem of a late 1800s Opera House that has been modernized into a great modern concert hall with its own very good restaurant. We saw Spyro Gyra and had a great time.

This mansion in the countryside is a gem. The rooms are clean and spacious and the space downstairs has many quaint and old antiques to explore. Most of all the breakfast is first class with Mike, the owner, pulling out all stops to provide a healthy and delicious breakfast complete with eggs cooked any style (except sunny side up) by himself. My son and I really enjoyed staying there and playing tennis anytime we wanted on the artificial grass court.

I found this spot on line, and like most people the wife and I were hoping that what we saw on line would match the experience we would have once we arrived. Rock Hall Luxe not only matched what we saw, the experience far exceeded our expectations. Upon arriving, and parking in the circular drive we were taken by the sheer beauty of the place. Michael, our very genial host greeted us at the front door and proceeded to lead us into the magnificent looking and beautifully antique decorated huge center hall/living room of the house that also serves as his home. Our room looked even better than it does in the picture, and was spotless. The same goes for the pool area, and every other area of the large estate, which includes a in house movie theatre, billiard room, gym, spa area, library, den, game room which has a ping pong table, and an old fashioned pin ball machine, a pool house, and I'm sure I have forgotten to list something. We were treated each morning of our three night stay with a home cooked gourmet breakfast, expertly prepared by our host, and each afternoon a light snack of shrimp, cheese, lobster, and cocktails, or on the one day we opted to skip because of an early dinner, Michael met us afterwards with after dinner drinks. Go back we will, and I highly recommend, this wonderful B&B where the host make you feel you are a welcome guest in hie home.

Rock Hall is a beautiful and indulgent experience. Arriving at the Inn, the strength of the rock and masonry architecture is rich and impressive. You feel like you are arriving at a castle...and as you enter...you realize a fantasy is in the making. Everything inside is huge and artistic and surprisingly comfortable. The number of rooms is limited....so the feeling of owning the space is quickly part of your story. The innkeeper, Michael is interesting and knowledgeable. He is traveled and careful about the history and collection that fills the home. I appreciated his demeanor....so non invasive but available and accomodating. Our room was beautifully decorated....again like a fairy tale. The linens are fine and the bed was so comfortable. Michael prepared cheese and fruit, as we arrived late and hadn't eaten. His presentation of food.....and even glasses for our wine....is 5 star and beyond....fine silver and crystal. In the morning, he prepares a buffet of breakfast delicacies set out in grand presentation. We were late for breakfast....but he was gracious and accomodating. Again...he presents his service in a way that made us feel like the King and Queen of the castle.....eating special egg fritattats with local jams and breads. Amazing. We played games in the sun room and drank fresh squeezed orange juice and freshly ground and brewed coffee. If my husband and I ever become a real king and queen....We would love to reign in a kingdom where our castle is Rock Hall.
