We stayed at the Chester Bulkley House for our anniversary and had a wonderful weekend away. The breakfasts were great and plentiful, savory one morning and sweet the next, recipes made with new twists on old favorites. The Inn Keeper made great suggestions on what to see and do - it was our first visit to Old Wethersfield. We spent... More

Strategically located , though a bit pricey to my mind. The breakfast was very good though not extensive and nicely presented The decor is very Victorian , which means crowded with nic nacs. The room was quiet and comfortable.

The Chester Buckley Home is a lovely home chock-a-block full of Victorian furnishings. Our daughter was married at the historic Webb Barn just across the street so I suggested to two friends without cars that they stay at the B and B. From it, they could visit beautiful old Wethersfield and could, the next day, walk to the wedding venue.... More

This historic home is situated in a lovely colonial town. The feather quilt and pillows were appreciated, since the heat was not yet furnished and we had a very cool, crisp night. The inn keeper prepared a delicious breakfast.

We are two couples that stayed for one night. Both of our bedrooms were lovely, clean, quiet and warm with comfortable beds. The house is beautiful with lost of charm and many pretty things and artwork. It is very old and the floors are uneven, but to me that's part of the charm. Breakfast was delicious and expertly served. But... More

I am not sure why TripAdvisor list this as $85-$95. Our room cost $165 plus 15% tax, off-season. I suggest you google their website or call to ask. The B&B is cute, heavily furnished with antiques and nick-nacks, in a fairly consistent and tasteful way. Breakfast was a tasty omelette. Host was polite and businesslike; not overly chatty (fine by... More

The Chester Bulkley House has a great location – within steps of many of the Wethersfield attractions and historical homes. Just about every nook and cranny of the house is decorated with antiques (or more recent antique-looking items), such as an old shaving set, china, etc. The decorations give the house a real character that you can’t get at chain...

My husband and I stayed at the Chester Bulkley House Bed and Breakfast after our wedding reception at the Keeney Memorial Cultural Center of Wethersfield Historical Society. It was perfect for us as we just walked from our reception next door to our room. Tom was completely accommodating! He was super flexible! My bridesmaids snuck into the room with Tom's... More

We booked a room here thinking we would have a romantic get away before my surgery. It was booked site unseen off the internet. We were hoping for a fireplace and bathtub in our room, but there was nothing like that in our room. The bathroom had a standup shower. It was very dusty & drafty in the room. We... More

I've stayed in several B&B's around the Northeast, and my wife and I continue to return to the Chester Bulkley House. It has become a second home to us. Everything from its location in beautiful historic Wethersfield to its period furnishings to Tom's amazing breakfasts and his excellent hostmanship woo us back time after time. We have never had a...
