Over 25 years, I have stayed in B&B's all over the East Coast (and some on the West Coast), and have found very few that rival the Mountain View Inn in Norfolk, Connecticut. The owners (Dean and Jean Marie) are delightful, and their passion is found in every nook and cranny of the highly decorated Victorian home, in the full morning breakfasts, in the cookies and unique juices upon arrival, in the Hershey kisses everywhere, in the fantastic vintage clothing shop just off the living room, Dean's paintings throughout... and oh, that large front porch with porch swing... with lovely gardens out back. Even their white poodle is well-behaved and a nice addition (even though I'm a cat lover). We were lucky enough to find this gem of a B&B through Infinity Hall music venue which is perhaps the best small venue I've ever seen and a less than 5 minute walk away! We now make this a weekend destination for concert, dinner, antiquing (town nearby) and, of course the B&B. For those of you who can't just relax, wifi is available for free, but I haven't even bothered to look for a TV. Bottomline... one of the best B&B's.... ever!
