Lovely Summer Days

5 on June 30, 2014

The house is gorgeous and we felt very welcome there. The grounds are perfect for taking a walk. Our room was very nice but we spent most of the time at the wonderful pool. There are several rooms downstairs for reading or watching TV. Everyone was kind and thoughtful, from Donna (reservations) and Carlos (cook, etc.) to Tim, the owner. We will definitely stay there again! Patty and Holly


Wedding Dreams

4.6 on December 08, 2013

Reserved the Inn for the weekend of our daughter's May 2013 wedding. The Bride and her bridesmaids stayed the pre-wedding night and had a wonderful time. It was a sleep-over reminiscent of her high school and college days. The day of, Carlos served a wonderful breakfast. Hair and make-up was done, flowers arrived and were displayed on the dining room table, photographer and videographer took full advantage of the beautiful location. Father and Mother of the Bride, out-of town friends, and family stayed the night of the wedding. The day after, family and friends relaxed, enjoyed, and recovered from our special event. The Grandfield Bed and Breakfast will always be a huge part of our Wedding memories. Thank you, Tim and Carlos! Michael and Barbara

Perfect!

I just spent a lovely weekend at the Grandfield with my daughter as we visited my son at college nearby and would highly recommend it. From the moment we arrived, we were treated with kindness and care. The rooms were spotless and Carlos treated us to a wonderful breakfast in the morning. The Grandfield is truly a home away from home with every attention paid to detail. It is a perfect location in the fall with the beautiful foliage, but I can imagine it is truly a four seasonal accommodation with fireplaces for the winter and the swimming pool in the summer. Hopefully we will return many times as we visit my son.


Girls' Weekend

4.0 on September 22, 2013

We had a wonderful stay! We rented rooms 2 and 4 (which share a bathroom). Room 4 only had one small window, so it was a bit stuffy/warm overnight. Donna, Tim and Carlos were super nice and let us treat the whole house as if it were our own (we were the only guest). We used the common areas to hang out before and after dinner. We also appreciated the Grandfield's flexibility-- we only needed a one night stay rather than two (most other local places require 2 nights in Sept). We decided to bring the husbands and kids back next time-- the pool, hot tub, and outdoor space looked great.


quiet and peaceful

4.4 on August 05, 2013

We enjoyed our stay at this laid-back, quiet, and peaceful estate. The home has a contemporary feel and is set in the middle of a beautifully landscaped 3-acre parcel in a very nice neighborhood. We stayed in the master suite, which includes a huge bedroom and an enormous bathroom with a 5’x8’ walk in-shower, whirlpool tub, skylights and trees. The bedroom opens into a semiprivate sitting area with peaceful views. The home is spacious with a large dining room, open kitchen, sitting areas, and a media room. The back of the house opens into a large patio with a hot tub, barbeque grill, screened pool house, and a large swimming pool. Tim, the owner, recommended several incredibly good restaurants, including Bar Bouchon, a fantastic French bistro a few minutes away where we had a five-star meal at three-star prices. We had access to the kitchen to make coffee early in the morning, and Carlos made a simple, but delicious breakfast later in the morning. The neighborhood is great for an evening walk. We checked in, made ourselves at home, and enjoyed the run of the place. In summary, the home is clean, private, quiet, peaceful, and very relaxing.


Great getaway

Booked all four rooms for a family get together. Great rooms and spacious public areas. Beautiful property in a very secluded spot with a wonderful pool. Owner was very accommodating and I highly recommend this inn.


Wonderful weekend away!

My husband and I stayed here and had a wonderful time! The house and pool were gorgeous and a ton of fun! The pool area also has a sound system which was great and a hot tub as well. The staff were very friendly and let us have our privacy which was really nice. We would definitely go back again!


Disappointed

2.2 on June 06, 2012

This past weekend my husband daughter and I stayed at the Grandfield Bed and Breakfast. We were visiting Madison for a memorial service. Having stayed at B&B's many times throughout Canada and the US and after reading the description of the lodging we were very excited. Unfortunately we were VERY disappointed. First the positives. The home and grounds are lovely and Carlos, the "do everything man" was really nice and very helpful. The negatives. We reserved two rooms, one for my husband and I and one for my daughter. My daughter's room was lovely. Our room was very stuffy(only one small window) and dark. There were only shams, no pillow's, no towels or toiletries. We called the manager three times before we finally got thru around 9:30 pm and Carlos came over and brought us some. The towels were so thin you could see thru them. In the morning we left for the day and came back to unmade beds, and dirty towels. The buffet breakfast consisted of some fruit, orange juice, a scoop of egg scramble per person and one very small semi burnt croissant. The coffee was awful and the coffee cream was fat free. We asked for jam or jelly but they didn't have any. It was advertised that Wi-Fi was available however my husband could only sign on when sitting in our car in the parking area. Given the cost of the rooms we feel as if we were ripped off.


Great Place

5 on October 30, 2011

I have stayed at the Grandfield a few time now and it has always been a great time. The rooms are clean and cozy. The beds are comfortable. Breakfast is good and casual. There was always a good variety of options to eat. We have always spent the most time outside. The pool area is great! Tim, the innkeeper let us use the grill whenever we wanted. We were able to make a large clam boil right on the back patio. Tim also gave us great recommendations for restaurants in the area and we were never disappointed. On our one rainy day in CT, we hung out in the large living room. The big screen TV and surround sound gave us a great rainy, movie day. I bring my family to Connecticut often and we will always stay at the Grandfield. It is a great stay and feels like home away from home. Thanks for the great place!
