Had a really great time. Very comfortable, beautiful landscaping, close to activities. Breakfast was amazing. Owners were extremely hospitable and helpful. Would definitely stay there again and recommend to others.

Love Chimney Crest

This was my 4th visit and I always have a wonderful time. The beds are very comfortable. Cynthia and Dan make you feel at home and breakfast is always delicious!

Chimney Crest Manor December 2013

5 on December 18, 2013

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!!

Great B and B in central CT

Halloween evening stay

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.

A wonderful atmosphere with great history in a very interesting area of Connecticut

Perfect B&B

5 on October 16, 2013

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!

A Hidden Treasure

4.4 on October 07, 2013

This may not be the easiest place to find, but the reward when you do is priceless. The building itself is a delight; the first floor rooms are full of character; and the bedrooms aren't bad either! And then there are Dan and Cynthia. Charming, great cooks and very helpful in their choice of restaurant. We spent two nights; we should have spent more.

Great Bed & Breakfast

4.6 on September 26, 2013

The manor itself is amazing! The service surpassed anything I've experienced. I'd stay again, and recommend to all my friends and family.


4.8 on September 18, 2013

What a treasure we found at this B & B. The Manor House and room was just as it looks on the website. It was the perfect respite from the road, so close to Route 84, and a short, nice ride from Litchfield Hills. The breakfast was as great as the rest of the stay. We'll be returning next year !
