We stayed with Wayne and Kim in late June of 2016 and had a terrific experience. The communication was excellent with Wayne confirming our itinerary prior to our visit. We appreciated the opportunity to notify them ahead of time of any dietary restrictions which we might have. Their home is very relaxing and comfortable with a large common living area... More

We arrived on Friday 17th June. Hadnt seen any pictures of the property before travelling from the UK. We were met by Wayne who is an amazing man. We stayed for 9 nights and left feeling more like friends. Their little dog Ali is so cute as well. Would definitely go back some day. Breakfasts were amazing, no 2 days... More

I was looking to stay in an affordable place - travelling solo- and hotels make you feel lonely. I was lucky to find this place with such fantastic people and great breakfast! Iwill come back for sure...

We liked our cute little room which was quite comfortable. In the evening we relaxed in the living room and enjoyed the ability to spread out. The suite was unoccupied when we arrived so our host gave us a peek. It's a beautiful large room that we would book the next time in the area. Breakfast was excellent.

Thank you Wayne & Kim for your generous hospitality. The rooms were cozy and clean. Each room had a bathroom and plenty of sitting area to watch tv or just talk with family. You can pick the time you want coffee and breakfast based on your schedule each day. I was able to get ready for my wedding in a... More

Thank you for the kind words, we try to make our guests feel as if it's their home away from home. Allie our dogs will be glad to show her tricks for a treat any time. And who's spreading those rumors about the blueberry pancakes? I make them the way I was taught by my mother so many years ago,... More

When I booked this trip I was unaware it was going to snow so much(especially being April)! We arrived later in the afternoon to be greeted by Wayne who shoveled us a path and showed us our room(the Connecticut suite). He showed us how to use the whirlpool tub and then let us settle in. This was our first B&B... More

We didn't know there was any issues at the time of these guests stay until we read it here, they had left such a glowing message in our quest book. I'm sorry about any poor experience at our B&B. We are usually very good about being quiet throughout the house whenever we have guests, as can be determined from all... More

We visited family in Granby, Connecticut for three days and were lucky enough to find the Truman Gillet House Bed and Breakfast on line. Kim and Wayne are a delightful couple with a beautiful home. We stayed in the Connecticut Room which is huge, as is the en suite bathroom. Everything was very well maintained and the bed was comfortable.... More

Stayed here for a night for my husband's birthday. The location is very quiet and relaxing. We stayed in the Connecticut Room which is so romantic and charming. The room is very spacious for a bed and breakfast but still has a charming and cozy feel because of all the lovely decorations and attention to detail. The bathroom is as... More

The innkeepers were very accommodating, helpful and nice. It was great talking with them, and they had great suggestions about things to do in the area. The house was built in the 1800s, and with only two guest rooms, you will have great privacy and much solitude.

I make a biennial trip to visit relatives in Florida from my home in the Berkshires; Bradley International Airport near Hartford has the only nonstop flight that is not in a congested metropolitan area.

This is a great review, it sounds like a place I would love to stay also. My wife Kim and I try to help out where and when we can. For the trip to the airport the timing happened to be just right in between going to or coming home from work (both of us work outside the B &... More
