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.

My fiancée and I spent 2 nights. We had an amazing time, the Elizabeth suite is beautiful and very comfortable, especially the balcony with view of the front yard. This gave a great view of the small new england town with fall foliage and halloween decorations. Breakfast was great and the host was very extremely pleasant and accommodating. Hope to go back for a next year.

We really wanted to get away for out anniversary, but with the pandemic and all decided to stay local. What a treat! The VI did not disappoint. Kenny couldn't have been nicer and the inn was a delight. Every area was a treasure trove of history, photos and period antiques to see and admire. The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable with the bathroom well stocked with extras you don't normally expect. Breakfast was excellent and filling on a beautifully set table. Definitely one of the nicest inns we've ever stayed in. We'll definitely be back soon!

We only booked one night for a couples getaway. The Inn was absolutely beautiful. We were able to check in early and the innkeeper was very pleasant and friendly. We got a tour of the Inn, which was immaculate. They have complimentary coffee, tea, snacks which were very appreciated. The bed was very comfortable and we both slept great. Breakfast was amazing! We will definitely be back for another night.

This is a beautiful, comfortable, well-kept, updated Victorian Inn. The room was incredibly clean, comfortable and well-appointed with wine glasses, free water bottles, tons of bathroom extras (including a toothbrush, toothpaste, bandaids and more!). There is a Keurig available with free coffee and tea, a guest fridge with water, soda and seltzer, mints in large urns, AND homemade chocolate chip cookies in individual bags. Oh and there was a cup of assorted chocolates by the bedside! Breakfast was delicious, fresh and elegantly served with lace tablecloths with fancy water and juice glasses. Though the decor is old-fashioned and beautiful, it was mixed with the technology of today. The best was the phone charger provided by the bedside! Located in the downtown area of Wallingford, walking distance to restaurants and Choate Rosemary Hall. Highly recommended!!
