My husband and I resently spent a long weekend at the inn to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. When we made the reservation we mentioned that but nothing was said about it when we arrived or during our stay.
When we arrived we were greeted by a young girl. Although she was pleasant she did not tell us her name (we found that out the next day) nor did she ask us if we wanted a tour of the house (we asked her if we could have one). We felt a bit unattended to and on our own.
The house is charming and IMMACULATE. The common rooms are very comfortable with television, fireplace, and free internet. We stayed in the Meadows room with the queen bed. The furnishings were charming and the room was clean and well appointed. Although it was facing the main road (not a busy road - Rt 7), the room was quiet. We got to our room and started unpacking and I noticed the room was on a slant. I also noticed the slant when I kept unconsciously rolling into the middle of the bed during the night! I jokingly mentioned that to the innkeeper in the morning, asked if anyone ever told him that and he responded a bit defensively that the house is 270 years old "after all" and no one ever mentioned that. So...if you stay in the Meadows room you'll know that.
Breakfast was very nice. Full breakfast, something different every day, with juice, coffee, fruit, and a fresh baked item. Lots of interaction with Ira during breakfast but didn't see much of him after that.
Not sure what "concierge" service there was. Any directions Ira supplied were rushed through and we got lost. We are travelers and don't often get lost. We learned more about sights in the area and how to get there from the other guests.
This inn is in a good location, within a fair drive to Mass and NY, other quaint towns and wineries in Western Connecticut.
Our opinion was that this inn was an average bed and breakfast. The special part was the charm of the house itself.
