My husband and I had a fabulous experience at the Silas Robbins house. First, the house itself is gorgeous and the amount of work that went into this place is astonishing. Immaculate, beautiful decor, great attention to detail. And yet, it managed to feel comfortable. Our host was also fantastic. Welcoming and friendly, excellent service. Breakfast was delicious -fruit, omelette and bacon and pancakes! Complimentary tea, coffee (keurig) snacks and soft drinks were also available all day. We spent one night in the Elizabeth room which was on the third floor. Room itself was small but comfortable; however, it opens into an enormous ballroom and we had the whole floor to ourselves! I just can't say enough good things about this property and the owners. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I would highly recommend a stay.

The Silas W. Robbins house is stunning inside & outside! It has been wonderfully restored after a fire. We only stayed for one night but it was perfect. Our room was very well appointed, clean & comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and professionally prepared & presented. There is plenty of off-street parking as well. Another bonus is that they have an elevator which is great for those of us who don’t want to carry luggage up & down stairs! It would be easy to spend several days just looking at all of the incredible furnishings & artwork!

The Silas W. Robbins house is a gorgeous B&B in beautiful Old Wethersfield. Upon arrival, the exterior of the home is jaw dropping, beautifully painted with gorgeous gardens. We were greeted by Dmitry and given a tour of the beautiful first floor dining and sitting areas. The home decor is beautiful. We were shown to our rooms, which were both beautiful and comfortable. Breakfast included the most beautiful and decorative fruit salad, an egg dish, and waffles or pancakes. We were so impressed with the presentation and preparation that went into every detail. We enjoyed walking the town of Old Wethersfield which was decorated for Halloween and was super cute and quaint. One day, we were supposed to spend the day out, but as it was the end of a 2 week trip, we decided to just enjoy the beautiful grounds of the inn with a bottle of wine and relax on one of the beautiful patios. Dmitry and Olga have maintained this historic home and provided wonderful service. I would highly recommend a vist to Silas W. Robbins house!

This was an amazing house. The innkeepers were friendly and helpful. The attention in the detail of the breakfast was very impressive. If your read other reviews regarding the details of the furnishings and the grounds, they are all true. I would give Silas W. Robbins House the highest rating of any B&B. They are certainly a superior Select Registry property.

This is such an incredible property, magical inside and out. The innkeepers were extremely friendly and accommodating. We had our breakfast out on the front veranda and enjoyed a delicious 3 course meal (see photo). The exterior and interior were painstakingly restored and look like something out of a movie set. As we ate our breakfast out front, people passing by would slow their cars to check out the property, as it's such a show stopper, including the well manicured lawn and gardens. If you're looking for someplace special to stay, this is it. Another really nice element was that we accidentally left some belongings in our room and they were kind enough to promptly box them up and send to us. The location was appealing as well, within walking distance to the village with shops and restaurants and a short drive to the Mark Twain House and other Hartford landmarks. We look forward to future visits and highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in the area or a worthy destination in and of itself.

Every detail was thought through from the initial greeting and tour of the property right through breakfast the next morning. Beautifully restored house, immaculately clean and fresh room, wonderful hosts and amazing breakfast! We came home and immediately booked a return stay for 2 nights over Thanksgiving. Can't wait to go back!

My wife and I spent just 1 night at the Silas W Robbins House as we attended a wedding at local winery, but our experience at this beautifully restored treasure will remain in our memory for years to come. The photos peeked our interest, but as you enter the house it is hard to describe the the impact. All the rooms take you back in time and the decor is amazing. Upon arrival we were greeted by Olga and she could not have been more accommodating. She was an incredible host and worked so hard to make our visit a memorable one. Her focus on all the details is second to none. The 3 course breakfast was the best we have experienced at any B & B. We have already recommended Silas W Robbins to many of our friends and hope to visit again as we plan visits to this area.

Wow. As beautiful as the photos are...they simply don't do this place justice. The Silas Robbins house is an excellent place for a getaway, a surprise gift for a romantic partner...or how I used it: as a meeting place to WOW a client. I reserved one of their library rooms for a private multi-hour meeting...and he too was blown away by the setting. When I walked into the Silas Robbins house for the first time, I was overtaken by the immaculate design, the richness of its history and the countless little details (furnishings, art, service touches). I knew immediately I was somewhere special. Olga and the service team can't do enough for you. They are attentive, friendly and make a mean breakfast! ;-)

Words do not suffice to describe this simply elegant ,immaculate and beautiful inn. Stepping in the front door is like stepping back in time. But before you enter you are awed by the magnificent grounds. Not one detail is overlooked in this Inn. All decor is gorgeous—the breakfast room is beyond charming with the most lovely fireplace. Lace table clothes and fresh flowers on every quaint table. Breakfast was excellent - a copious and artfully arranged fresh fruit cup was opener followed by eggs, bacon and waffles or pancakes. Coffee , tea and juice also provided. The Jane Robbins room was an oasis of comfort/ the cooling hues of blue and cream along with a free standing tub in the bathroom. The other rooms are equally delightfully appointed. Olga and Dimitry were kind , gracious and welcoming hosts. We will be sure to visit this divine inn again! We can’t thank our hosts enough for the fantastic weekend we spent there.
