The Laurel Cottage accommodation at this lovely bed & breakfast is a cozy, well-appointed retreat, ideal for a small family or couple. Nothing can beat morning coffee or an evening glass of wine on the flagstone patio that overlooks a bucolic setting (views of the Connecticut River three seasons.) We would love to return.

We decided last minute to get out of the hustle and bustle of NYC and take a trip out to Connecticut. We found this quaint B&B in Haddam, CT that allowed for two couples to stay in our own two bedroom one bath luxury cottage in Haddam. The accommodations were fantastic - lovely queen bed rooms with an up to... More

Found this treasure on web and we were very pleased with our stay. Maryan and Jeff are terrific hosts. The breakfast was top shelf and accommodations were perfect. Despite the awful New England weather we had a truly memorable time and we hope to come back and enjoy it even more later in the Spring.

The Nehemiah Brainerd House B&B is about the finest I've ever stayed at. The location, grounds, views, and accommodations are just wonderful, as are the hosts Maryan and Jeff. And, to top it off, our fellow guests were like old friends. Truly, Mark Wildermann ... Stamford, Ct.

The Nehemiah Brainerd House B&B is a perfect place for a weekend get-away! Everything about the Brainerd House is special, from the Innkeepers, to the décor, to the beautiful grounds that overlook the Connecticut River. The House is exquisitely furnished and perfectly maintained, it is like stepping back in time. The Innkeepers, Maryan and Jeff, are gracious hosts and wonderful... More

Wonderful House, clean comfortable, beautiful grounds and excellent hospitality from owner and hosts Mary Ann and Jeff. The grounds are scenic and allow for breathtaking views of the Connecticut river. Location is ideal and convenient to all of the Haddam CT area. This was our second visit, we expect to return again in the summer.

Hi Ellen: Thanks for the lovely review! We were thinking of you for the rest of the day after you left to make sure you made it home OK. The weather was getting really bad the further south you went with ice and snow. Come back and see us when you don't have to fight the weather! All the best,... More

Having enjoyed a truly wonderful stay in the Library room on our first visit we decided to try Laurel Cottage, beautifully situated in the extensive grounds of the Nehemiah Brainerd House.

This B& B is decorated in a fashion very true to the age of the house. Our room was very comfortable and, since there were no other guests on the second floor, the shared bath was not a problem. Our hosts knew the area very well and were able to guide us to little shops where we could pick up... More

I stayed at the Nehemiah Brainerd House with my family during my wedding weekend (October 3, 2015), which was held at the Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station.
