Though only half of the house built in 1854, the newer part blends perfectly because of the charming colonial decor throughout. We were amazed by the number of common rooms: a living room with huge stone fireplace downstairs plus 3 upstairs: a sunny reading room with comfy couches, a TV room and a guest kitchen area with mini-refrigerator, microwave, 24 hour coffee and tea maker, table and chairs. Elaine served us delicious breakfasts (e.g. fruit cup, maple and brown sugar baked grapefruit, spinach-mushroom fritatta, apple French toast, sausage and bacon, homemade muffins et al.). She and husband Lew very friendly and helpful in directing us to local sights to see and places to eat. (We lucked out by dining at Gabrielle's in Centerbrook on Monday, when all entrees half-price, and L&E French bistro on Tuesday when burgers are served with free glass of wine or beer.) Inn is conveniently located on main street so we could walk to the few shops, cafes, public library, et al.
