The Wallingford Victorian Inn regally presides over the corners of North Main Street and Curtis Avenue in Wallingford, CT. Once the site of a quaint cottage sheltered by trellises and grape arbors, in 1890 the property was purchased and the cottage razed to make way for a Grand Queen Anne Victorian. Designed by the firm of Allen and Tyler Architectural Associates of New Haven, it was constructed by the C.F. Wooding Company of Wallingford, a name that to this day connotes excellence in craftsmanship, constructed at a time when execution of detail and ornamentation was a hand crafted trade. The Victorian is comprised of one dramatic hallmark of the period after another; complex patterned masonry chimneys; finials capping hipped slate roofs; multi patterned textures of shingles and clapboard; intricate relief work (grapes that reflect its humble origins), and small latticed porches, just to name a few. According to local historians, originally it was a wedding gift to Georgianna Simpson Hull and Charles Tibbits from her parents Gurdon W. Hull and Elizabeth Simpson Hull, whose father founded Simpson, Hall & Miller Company, a prominent silver manufacturer which later became International Silver. The family is steeped in Wallingford history and they were true philanthropists. No expense or detail was spared in the construction of this handcrafted home. Over the past century and a quarter the Victorian has watched over the town of Wallingford as it grew and more buildings sprung up. The dirt roads became asphalt, and horse and carriage gave way to motor vehicles. Fashions and trends flicked by in the blink of an eye. Still it stood, rising on its corner, an enduring landmark in the cycle of change. It has prospered in good times, and endured the hard times. It has changed hands and purpose, yet still stands proud. Come, step back in time with us, when work, rest and recreation ebbed and flowed with the rhythms of nature. Enjoy this remarkable property surrounded by period furnishings. Stay over and enjoy one of our five suites with exquisite attention to detail. In the morning awake to a gourmet breakfast made just for you by our chef innkeeper. Come, enjoy all this in a turn-of-the-century, handcrafted Victorian mansion, The Wallingford Victorian Inn.

Third floor room is very large and has private sittting area. Avery welcome respit after being on the road all day. Breakfast was gourmet. Perfect no faults. Room and entre house were immaculate which is remarkable given the size and age of the home.

We enjoyed two fabulous nights at this antique – filled inn. Everything was super clean and very comfortable. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and you will not walk away hungry! The innkeeper and his manager both were so friendly. Be sure to check out the delightful backyard area and the chicken coop which provides fresh eggs! We will definitely stay there again on a future visit to the Wallingford area.

SUCH a wonderful place! Kind & caring staff, impressive breakfast, lots of snacks & drinks (coffee, tea, waters, sodas) available all day long. Rooms are immaculate & gorgeous. Beds are SO comfortable. We enjoyed sitting out on the back patio as well as the front porch. It is an easy walk to downtown. The Innkeeper, Kenni, is so sweet, genuine and welcoming. We are so happy we had this wonderful little getaway and thrilled we chose The Wallingford Victorian Inn. If you have the opportunity, treat yourself to this wonderful B & B!!!

My girlfriend and I met here from New Jersey and Massachusetts because it was half way. It was the perfect weekend we both needed to catch up and relax! The inn was stunning, the room was big, bed was comfy and there were so many good snacks and little touches all around. The location is great - walking distance to everything in town and a short drive to wineries/breweries. The breakfast in the morning was incredible too! Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

I could not rate this place high enough. My absolute favorite place to go. The definition of welcoming and being treated like royalty. Complimentary cookies, snacks, coffee, tea, soda available at all times during your stay. The rooms have the most comfortable robes and slippers. The morning breakfast is such an elegant , exciting experience with fantastic food. This place is top of the line and I highly recommend. I have yet to stay at another bed and breakfast that tops here. Staying here brings you back to a different world making it a nice getaway. I’ve stayed twice now, once for my birthday and once just to get away. I got the birthday package and Kenny made the most amazing birthday cake and decorated the room adorably. Highly recommend. Complimentary touches everywhere you turn!
