A wonderful respite from our business trip!

5 on August 12, 2014

My colleague and I stayed in the Daniel Rust House last month during a business trip to UConn. Germaine and Kathy were so accommodating and kind; it made our trip infinitely easier and more relaxing than it could have been. The house was beautiful, the room cozy and lovely, the resident cats (Prudence and John Quincy Adams - I will always remember those names) adorable, and the food delicious (really, probably the best french toast I have ever had)! The attention to detail throughout the whole experience, from the welcome snacks in our room to the intricate place settings at breakfast, made us feel so special and grateful. It was truly the perfect place to come back to after a day of work. I would highly recommend the Daniel Rust House for anyone visiting UConn and the surrounding area. I would certainly love to come back!


Couldn't ask for more of my first stay in a B&B

5 on June 21, 2014

I stayed here in the beginning of June bc I had an interview the following day. When I first pulled in there was an adorable dog who basically walked me to the door which I found to be so cute. Germaine greeted me and gave me a tour of the lovely house. It is so quaint and charming and I just loved it. What I appreciated the most was how kind Germaine and Kathy were. I had the beginning of my interview that night at a dinner meeting and before I left both of them talked to me and wished me luck which I really appreciated especially since I was a distance from home and my family. When I came back they saw me and told me to come in asking me how everything went. It really was so nice of them to check in and wish me luck. It made me feel very comfortable and it was nice to have someone to talk with and share the details of my evening. Lovely place with super kind and wonderful hosts!!

Thank you so much! We are glad you were comfortable, that is a compliment we treasure. We enjoyed chatting with you and hope to have the pleasure of your company again! We'll see if we can get Star, the golden retriever, back to greet you again too!

A Perfect Stay

Germaine was working in the garden as we pulled in the driveway. We eluded to the fact that we loved historical houses and she proceeded to give us the warmest welcome and full tour of this charming house. Our room was lovely, decorated beautifully, comfortable and clean. After a comfy nights rest we woke to an amazing breakfast served most elegantly in the dining room. Yogurt, granola with fresh berries, fresh squeezed orange juice and hot cranberry scones were the prequel to omelettes and croissant french toast filled with peaches and marscapone cheese! in a word...amazing! After breakfast we walked on the grounds before our ride home. The warmest host and the most beautiful setting for a sweet little getaway!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for such kind words. We do love sharing our "old" home and glad you enjoyed yourselves. And for guests who know me..I can usually be found in the garden!! LOL.


A very enjoyable stay

We came here for Valentine's Day. it was very comfortable and cozy, with good food and friendly hostesses. Really loved the land and birds.


Fabulous!

Our recent stay (11/13) at The Daniel Rust House was more than we expected. We were visiting from North Carolina to be married in my home state of CT, therefore this was a long weekend that could have been filled with stress. Nothing could have been farther from the truth! From the time of their first warm greetings, the gracious hosts could not have been more accomodating to ourselves and our family. We felt "at home" and comfortable. We were well fed with wonderful breakfasts and treats, and pampered throughout our stay. We are gratedul for the marvelous experience; making our wedding weekend all the more special!


Lovely Stay!

We enjoyed our stay w/Germaine & Kathy. Charming home, friendly & hard-working owners, great history. WIFI didn't reach our sleeping room. Breakfast was fantastic. Gorgeous yard. we'll be back.

Innkeeper Response
Ah, the joys of a nearly 300 year old house! The walls are thick plaster, lots of very solid wood floorboards and stone centerbuilt fireplace means that often, newfangled inventions like WiFi "beams" may not always get to where they need to. Also we have found that some computers work better then others. We have the strongest WiFi components available to us but unfortunately this sometimes happens. When guests inform us of an issue, we can give them hints on how to rectify this...such as stepping outside the door for a minute until the WiFi connects..or aiming the computer a certain way. As we admit..living in this old house does have some issues, but the charms certainly outweigh them, we hope our guests feel the same.


Charming, Cozy B&B in Beautiful CT

The Daniel Rust House is absolutely, perfect in every way! It is historic, homey and everything one would want in a romantic getaway (or just a relaxing weekend surrounded by beauty). Germaine & Cathy are fabulous hosts, and the food is gourmet! Beautifully decorated, lovingly maintained. This place is the real deal. Come, you won't be sorry!


Stay here!

This was our second stay with Germaine and Cathy and they couldn't have been more accommodating and delightful. The breakfasts were all fresh baked, unique and absolutely delicious! We love the grounds and the lovely opportunities for walking in the woods around the surrounding lake. This is a real taste of old New England and a comforting and charming experience overall!


Wonderful experience!
