“Warm and Friendly Welcome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

I wasn't sure about this B&B because of only one previous review but we were very pleasantly surprised to discover a warm welcome from practiced and pleasant innkeepers and a large comfortable room at the Captain Josiah Cowles Place. Located conveniently off the interstate but in a quiet neighborhood, it was the perfect place to spend a night after a long day's drive. The hosts have been in the innkeeping business for many years and know how to make guests welcome. We enjoyed their friendly company after a great dinner nearby and then arose the following morning to the incredible aromas of a breakfast that included waffles with homemade maple syrup and crispy delicious bacon. A wonderful stay. Do not hesitate! This is a very nice B&B.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2010

Visit family in neighboring area for 3 nights stay. Coming from Los Angeles, time difference, long flights a place that held a lot different values. Since our stay was short, site seeing was limited , spent time with family and also had to incorporate work time,

Read the list of requirements were long....being exhausted, wanted to feel the New England experience, be able to see family and conduct work. Trust us, we did!

Rooms are spotless......Captain Joshia Cowles Inn is an Natural Inn. Orginial ceiling beams, flooring, doors, private secure rooms, the bed, air comfort, the updated and private bathrooms, the setting the landscaping, the breakfast , the internet connection, the ability to continue to work a couple hrs a day were all MET. ALL, and Beyond.

Since our traveling to Connecticut from L.A. is rare being part of the Historical Value without site seeing (didn't have time) Cpt. Joshia Cowles Inn did just that . Experience of a lifetime.....very natural setting too. Like the yester years.

Host, and Hostess are classic, and amazing. Make their own Mayple Syrup, the breakfasts , chocolate cakes, apple pie, it is Connecticut's Best kept secert.

Would we go back............OF COURSE, and will be sending all our friends and family.
