I booked the room online and wasn't sure what to expect but everything turned out great! This is one of the best places I've ever stayed. The Inn Keepers were so nice and accommodating. The rooms were very clean. The breakfast in the morning was delicious. I will definitely come back again.

We stayed in the Briar Rose room and were very satisfied with our stay. The room was beautifully furnished and very clean. The bathrobes offered were amazing! The dining accommodations were also great. The dining room offers private tables and the food itself was delicious. There were fresh baked muffins and pastries while we waiting for our Brocoli and cheese quiche, which was also delicious. The owners were very pleasant. Overall it was a great romantic little getaway that we would definitely do again.

Lovely B&B

First bed and breakfast we've ever stayed at and liked it a lot. The owners are really friendly and breakfast was amazing! My only real issues were that there was no private fridge in our room to store left overs so we had food go to waste. There was a small "shared" fridge upstairs and downstairs which I didn't feel comfortable storing my food in (personal preference). Definitely don't expect to be partying or loud there, they have a curfew at 10 to be quiet which I get.. but seems a little early for adults.. The beds were extremely comfortable too, probably my favorite part. Overall great place, though I felt like a child with all the rules listed all over our room "Keep AC no lower than this..", "Here's a jacuzzi, but don't use it past 10", "Quiet time at 10", "breakfast only within a 30 minute window during the week".. Just seemed a little much considering the cost of everything.

WOW again!!

Ledyard's Best Kept Secret

5 on September 26, 2015

A two day stay at this peaceful and charming retreat was nothing short of exceptional. A complimentary breakfast was prepared and served by the innkeepers with care and impeccable attention to detail. The quiche and croissant French toast were scrumptious and were accompanied with sliced fruit, muffins, and choice of coffee or tea. A selection of Harney and Sons teas and snacks were placed in the dining room outside of our room, a welcomed treat for any tea aficionado. After breakfast, take in the sun and enjoy the beautiful views of the grounds from the deck of the 1807 house. You will surely feel at ease. The Stonecroft Country Inn is a refreshing retreat that immerses you into the peace and serenity of the New England countryside, giving a glimpse of life as it was centuries ago. Marcie and Jim are two wonderful people and gracious hosts who will make you feel welcome and tend to any special consideration or need. A pleasant stay and memorable experience is guaranteed.
