Overall a great stay. The house, lawn, and gardens are very pretty, Pat's artistic touches and Wayne's hard work add tons of personality to the property.

I stayed at the Connecticut River Valley Inn the night before my wedding, my bridesmaids and I used it the morning of the wedding to get ready, we took some pictures on the grounds, and my husband and I stayed the night of our wedding. We stayed in the Spring Rain suite, which was perfect for getting ready, morning photography, etc. The suite was two rooms on the top floor, connected by a bathroom on one side and hallway on another. It was more than enough space for the 5 of us to get ready, with others coming and going, the photographer using one room for detail photos, etc. The suite and the garden/grounds outside were also beautiful for photos. One bridesmaid commented it would be a great location for an elopement :o) The hosts were welcoming and accommodating, the room was beautifully decorated, clean, and comfortable (super comfy bed, my bridesmaid said the pullout was even pretty comfortable), and the breakfast was tasty and varied. We will definitely return for another stay!

My husband & I were there to attend a family reunion in Portland. Glastonbury is a lovely town. The main street is one stately home after another. Good restaurants, coffee shops, wine, gift shops. We loved our two night stay at CRVI. Pat & Wayne couldn't have been more accommodating. Comfortable surroundings, excellent breakfasts, lovely grounds. The Inn was very quiet, although full. Lovely bed linens, towels. Updated bathroom with steam shower-wow! The Inn, built in the 1700's, has been maintained and is full of character. We would definitely stay there again, hopefully longer in order to explore the area.

My wife and I celebrated our 10 year anniverssary here. We enjoyed everything about this place. It was very nice, clean. Pat and Wayne were very kind and accomidating. The suite we stayed in was fantastic. Had everything we needed. The rainforest shower was exceptional. We didn't go without anything. Wish we could've stayed longer. Mike

We had such a fantastic stay at the CT River Valley Inn! Everything was well kept, very clean and beyond our expectations! Very close proximity for fantastic restaurants and shopping in Glastonbury. Can't wait to book our next visit!

Our experience was perfect from beginning to end. The hosts are friendly, warm and attentive to your needs -- we got great dinner recommendations each night, too. What really stands out is the attention to detail in the house and grounds -- it is so lovely, and in a great location if you are interested in getting in to Hartford easily, but not staying there. You can't miss choosing this perfect B&B!

My fiancee and I stayed here while visiting my family in Glastonbury. What a treat it was! Everything was delightfully thought of. I hate sleeping in hotels and most places away from home, but this was definitely the exception. The rooms were very comfortable and everything I needed for a comfortable stay was thought of. I can't say enough about Pat Brubaker's design sense. It is a wonderful old home that the owners have renovated into a beautiful, luxurious B&B and the decor is amazingly unique, elegant and charming all at the same time. Just wonderful! And, the breakfast, oh my, just terrific! We loved our stay with Pat and Wayne so much that we have changed our wedding plans from CA to CT to have our wedding at this Beautiful B & B. Truly a wonderful experience!

We recently had a wedding at the Inn. Both families stayed in the rooms and we used the grounds for the reception. Comments from guests said it best, "Absolutely spectacular", "What a setting" and the families just loved the size of the rooms to relax before and after the reception. Pat was a pleasure to work with and was very professional when dealing with caterers etc. We had 90 people at the reception and it was a day to remember for all who attended. Isn't that what everyone wants for their wedding day

We reserved our room at The Connecticut River Valley Inn after reading the repeatedly excellent reviews on this site, and I assure you that they are not an exaggeration. Our stay was brief (a single overnight), but we left the next morning reluctantly, wishing that it might have been much longer. The rooms are decorated to convey a seasonal ambiance, and have been decorated with such attention to theme that they have an almost theatrical quality about them. I stayed in the Winter Solstice room and indeed, with its white, gray, black and touches of pale lavender hues, felt I had entered into a space of quietude and peace - a place akin to the world after a newly fallen snow. The intentional conjuring of such a fantasy land somehow provides another dimension to the notion of escaping to an inn! Having requested something involving vegetables for breakfast, Pat got up early and baked acorn squash stuffed with nuts, cheese, mushrooms and scallions, accompanied by saute-ed sweet potatoes, and a spinach and apple side. Beyond delicious! We never met Wayne during our brief stay, but Pat, with her vibrant blue eyes, is clearly passionate about making sure all of her guests feel pampered and welcomed. We missed the gardens due to it being April in New England, but the promise of what is to come in the next month or two was evident in the abundance of flower beds scrolled throughout the grounds. Dare I say that this inn may be the best reason to visit Glastonbury, CT.!
