Roger Sherman Inn

Traveler (13)
Dining (12)


This historical landmark in New Canaan, CT has been established as an Inn since 1925; the Inn was named after Roger Sherman whose niece, Martha Sherman, lived in the house from 1783 until 1806. Roger Sherman, a lawyer and delegate from Connecticut to the Continental Congress, had the distinction of being the only person to sign all four of these historical American documents: The Association, &c (1774), Declaration of Independence (1776), Articles of Confederation (1777), & The Constitution of the United States. In 2008, award-winning restaurateurs Nes & Joseph Jaffre became the owners of this elegant establishment and have transformed both the inside and the outside of the Inn. Recent renovations in 2012/2013 have given this historical landmark a modern, romantic feel while preserving the antique nature of the building. Come join us whether it's for a weekend getaway, cocktails at the bar, dining on our wrap around patio, an anniversary dinner, or a private party from 8 people to 180 people; our venue is perfect for all occasions!

My husband and I have been going to the RSI for many years particularly on special occasions. After the sale fell through last year we were sad to hear the doors might be closing. We loved them more often for the memories than the food. At the beginning of the year..Joseph and

Nice atmosphere with Christmas decorations and a fire pit blazing by the entrance, service was fine, but the food was uneven. French onion soup was good, but the combination of rubbery filet mignon and a dull steak knife was not good. My wife had the tuna, which she said was

"You can book your individual room with photograph on their website so it really is up to the client to decide.!!"
"Did not stay here."
"Ask to be upgraded to a larger room upon check-in; the hotel itself says that certain rooms are above the bar and can be "noisy""
"dont get a room near the back of Inn or front of carriage house as these face a very noisy exhaust fan that blows from the kitchen."
"Choose above a standard room for more space."
