I just returned from a quick two day stay at the Westphal Mansion Inn and I can't say enough good things about it. First, the owners Pam and Garrett are amazing. From the minute you walk in the door they make you feel like family. Don't let the term "Bed & Breakfast" discourage you from giving this place a try. There are eight suites available, every single one has its own private bath, complete with every amenity you would/could need. Shampoo/conditioner, facial cleanser, lotion, bath products and a full size hair dryer. I stayed in Suite 5 and had my own gas fireplace. It wasn't really cool at night but I turned it on anyway, just because I could! In addition, there is free wi-fi throughout the Inn which makes it great for business travelers. Any review of this place would be incomplete without mentioning breakfast. I am normally not a breakfast eater but I stuffed myself silly both mornings I stayed here because the food was so good. Pam and Garrett use ingredients from their garden when available. They made a chocolate chip mint scone that was to die for. I would have eaten six of those if they put them in front of me. Each breakfast is four courses. A fruit course, a bread course, the main course and dessert. Unfortunately I had no room for dessert so had to pass on what I am sure was an amazing creme brulee. Believe me it pained me to have to do so since creme brulee is my very favorite dessert in the world. Finally, I should mention Duke. Duke is Pam and Garrett's dog. He is very friendly and greets everyone with a smile. I am a dog lover, and playing with Duke made me miss my own dogs a little less. If you have any reason to stay in the Hartford area I highly recommend this place. Thanks to Pam and Garrett and their warm and friendly service, it felt like home.
