“Bullying Innkeeper, Overpriced Rooms”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2012

The owner of this B&B has a very harsh, bullying demeanor. Even though she claims otherwise, she obviously does not like small children. When her rude insistence that we police our son made us feel uncomfortable and we decided to leave early, she did not apologize but simply announced that she would charge us for the night we did not stay.
If you don't have children, this might be less of a problem. But the prices are clearly overblown, and this B&B is not only extremely expensive. It will also charge you an additional $ 18 if you would like Egg Benedict in the morning (we did not have any breakfast, because we just wanted leave as soon as we could). To be sure, the rooms are clean but they are not worth these prices, and the ground is just next to CT-35.

barbarasimkins, Owner at green ROCKS inn, responded to this review, February 24, 2012
As owners of green Rocks inn, it is so very important that we remain open and responsive to all guest comments, criticisms, and needs. Nothing is more important to us than the comfort and well being of our guests. Unfortunately, we find that on rare occasions such as this, there is nothing we can do to please a guest. Even more rare is the occasion when we host a guest that becomes this bitter. A child was clearly abusing the inn's property and a good deal of racket was being made. In order to protect our other guests' experience, as well as the inn's contents and furnishings, we had no choice but to step in and ask for consideration and respect. When we politely asked these parents to more closely supervise their child, their feelings got hurt. For the hurt feelings, regardless of the gap between perception and reality , we are sorry. We never intended, nor do we ever want, anyone to feel uncomfortable.

We have the confidence that guests will treat their fellow guests, as well as contents and furnishings of the inn, with gentle respect. We remain grateful that the vast majority of our guests are kind and considerate. They are a pleasure to host.

Finally, and regarding the comment about "Eggs Benedict": in addition to our full, hearty organic breakfast, we do have an a la Carte menu however "Eggs Benedict" is not on it.

Simply outstanding. Green Rocks is, without question, the nicest B & B I have ever been in. The innkeepers, Barbara and Natacha, are wonderful hosts genuinely committed to making one’s stay both pleasant and memorable. From the moment my wife (I married her here ;-) and I walked in we felt totally at home.

If you are looking for gingham and lace this is not the place but if you are looking for superb accommodations and a truly outstanding bed and breakfast experience you will not be disappointed.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Green Rocks Inn! The inn and grounds are meticulously maintained. Also, the inn is beautifully and warmly decorated inside and kept immaculately clean; the inn is, by far, one of the most cleanly kept of any place we have ever stayed away from home. The service provided by hosts Barbara and Natacha was absolutely exceptional; our stay was enhanced by countless personal touches, from the fantastic complimentary breakfast every morning, to the turn-down service with chocolates every evening. The inn is very conveniently located in Ridgefield, CT (a very charming town and excellent weekend destination for anyone in the NY metropolitan area) and we highly recommend the Green Rocks Inn as THE place to stay!

My wife and I came into town for 1 night and decided to stay at Green Rocks. We are so glad that we did! We've stayed at many B&B's over the years and this place is up there with the best of them! Barbara was the most gracious host and we couldn't have asked for a better way to escape city life, even if only for one night. The Inn and the grounds are beautiful and the rooms tranquil and spacious. We can't wait to go back!

We visited family in Ridgefield over Thanksgiving. Green Rocks Inn is lovely. Anyone who can stay here is lucky - absolutely lucky to have such a fine accommodation. Everything is pristine clean - such a rare find - even in the finest hotels, inns or B&Bs. And beautiful - defies description - not like any other place - full of interesting creations from around the world yet not corny or kitchy. This is one of the very nicest places we have ever stayed. Genuine high standards - not pretentious but fine, professional service. We've stayed in all the inns in Ridgefield - this is by far the best. And for 18 years, we owned an Inn in western Mass. so our praise is not without knowledge. We very much look forward to our next stay!

We had a lovely stay at this beautfully decorated inn. Barbara and Natasha made us feel very comfortable and took good care of my husband and I during the unexpected Oct 29th snowstorm. They made a nice fire in the fireplace, served us some wine and snacks, got us some dvd's to watch when the satellite tv went out. The beds were comfy, accomodations sparkly clean and beautifully appointed. They even helped us get the snow off of our car when we were leaving. Excellent all the way around.

This trip was planned by my partner for a quick over night trip for me to relax and "de-stress". The pictures of the inn do not give it justice and the moment you walk in you instantly feel a sense of calm and belonging. Barbara and Natasha are very hospitable and made our night the most romantic night of my life! The rose peddles on the floor as we walked into the beautifully appointed Dance Room leading to the bed......they accommodated my now fiancées every request to the tee - and I can’t thank them enough for that! I can't wait to stay again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
