I recently treated my mother to a stay here. The home's exterior and grounds are gorgeous, the interior’s décor is exquisite, and amenities are superb (on par with any 5 star hotel). You can tell this B and B is labor of love as evidenced by the attention to detail, how immaculately it is maintained, and the host’s hospitality. Be... More

We had such a nice stay at Silas Robbins, and felt pampered with 5 Star luxury. Innkeepers and staff was very friendly, thoughtful, and accommodating of my gluten allergy. Quiet and peaceful. The house and our room were all beautiful. Breakfast was superb and generous, with full service for a decadent fruitcup and a hot entree. Several choices for hot... More

I have never stayed in a more beautiful, better kept, or better appointed Inn. It is exceptional in every way and the owners are lovely. There are not enough commendatory adjectives to describe the Silas Robbins House. Wow!

This incredibly restored B&B hits all the right notes: extremely well cared for and restored mansion with an eye for authenticity without sacrificing modern comforts; excellent breakfasts and wonderful hosts. I'm only giving a 4/5 because I felt the rate was a bit too much for the season and the size of the room. In all other aspects, this is... More

If you ever plan to visit this area you must stay at this property. If you never plan to travel to this area, you should probably adjust your plans and make an effort to do so. The location is walking distance to a downtown area with a nice variety of food establishments and the historic area has beautiful architecture and... More

This is such a beautiful property and such a lovely place to stay. I wish that I had known about it sooner as I would have stayed here the duration of my visit to Connecticut. John was so friendly and responded right away to my inquiries prior to my arrival. The rooms are beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable and the... More

The Silas W Robbins House is a gem in the historic neighbourhood of Old Wethersfield. We stayed there between visiting some of the largest cities in the US, where we found some much-needed peace and quiet. The house is beautifully restored (and make sure you learn about the story of its near demise and later restoration). The lawn and gardens... More

It is rare to see a B & B with such excellent reviews but this is truly an exceptional place. We have stayed in some great places over the years including the top rated (by TripAdvisor’s standards) B & B in Europe. I can really say that Shireen and John’s place ranks up there. You can always tell how good... More

The Silas Robins House is a beautifully restored mansion complete with period furniture, a reading library, and a large porch that overlooks a well landscaped yard with flowers, trees, and shrubs overlooking the Old Wethersfield common area. My wife and I stayed two nights. Shireen and John were our hosts and were like friends from the start. Our room was... More

The Silas W. Robbins House is a gorgeous, meticulously restored home on the Village Green in Old Wethersfield. Almost all the homes on the Green are well-preserved, historic homes, but this one is clearly the jewel in the crown. It has to be seen to be believed. You will not regret staying here! Highly recommend.
