A splendid 11,500 sq ft Tudor Mansion overlooking Connecticut's Farmington hills, Chimney Crest was built in 1930 in what is now Federal Hill Historic District of Bristol. The Manor's ornate plasterwork, beamed ceilings, framed artwork and stately fireplaces express a grandeur unparalleled in the area. We've seen to your comfort in elegant lodgings with air conditioning, king and queen-size beds and private bath, color cablevision and off-street parking. We add those little touches our guests tell us mean so much to them...turned-down beds,fresh fruit, tea, sweets. we'll even be glad to serve you our piping hot, plentiful breakfast on the Grand Patio off the Salon. Visit with us for pleasure or on business. we'll treat you to warm, attentive bed-and-breakfast hospitality set in the splendor and style of a bygone era.

We made last minute plans to visit relatives in Bristol and needed a room for two nights. I found Chimney Crest online and made the reservation. Dan and Cynthis were accomodating and helpful. When we arrived, there was a winter storm in progress, and we needed extra schedule assistance, and everything was taken care of for us. Also, the breakfast that we received was first class, and the setting was incredible.......a fire in the dining room fireplace, snow falling outside, and great conversation.....who could ask for more? If I could rate the experience with ten stars, I would in a heartbeat. Special thanks to Dan and Cynthia!!

nice place to bring my husband for his birthday. We went for a couples massage before checking in, so it was a nice relaxing stay. Very nice area, the inside and outside were beautiful. Dan and Cynthia were great hosts.

The only thing wrong was the "iffy" Wi-Fi connection. But who really needs Wi-Fi at a B&B? Cynthia was very charming and the house was lovely. We stayed at 9 different places during our tour of New England and this was one of the best!
