Valentine's Weekend Stay

4.6 on February 21, 2015

We stayed at the Grandfield on a snowy Valentine's weekend and it was wonderful! Beautiful grounds - watching the snow come down! Tim the owner was very nice and knew the area well with recommendations for great dining! Breakfast was delicious each day. Our room (the master suite) was spacious, private and very comfortable! Great place to stay.


Weekend away

I stayed at the Grandfield B&B before and after my wedding. Everything about it was just perfect. From the rooms to the grounds and the complimentary breakfast. We were able to use the whole house and the beautiful grounds. I couldn't be happier with the service from Tim and Carlos. I look forward to spending more weekends at the B&B.


A lovely birthday getaway

3.8 on September 01, 2014

My husband and I stayed in the master suite at the Grandfield in mid August to celebrate my birthday. The multiroom master suite consisted of a sitting area, a very large master bedroom (with the bed on a platform), a huge bathroom area consisting of a sauna, a whirlpool tub, ficus and other plantings, a Roman shower, and a wide sink and counter with ample storage. As a whole, the suite was spacious and comfortable, although seating in the bedroom portion of the suite was minimal. However, a large sitting area outside the bedroom offered ample seating and a wide view of the gorgeous, extensive, well manicured, bird-filled grounds that covered 3 1/2 acres. The pool offered a pleasant site for reading, relaxing, and sunning. The staff, consisting of owner, Tim, business person, Donna, and chef and Jack-of-all-trades, Carlos, was personable, warm, hospitable, and efficient. Carlos' breakfasts were simple, but tasty and filling. Getting there via exit #62 on I-95 was best done following the provided directions; GPS will take you on a round-about, less-direct route. Hammonasset Beach State Park was nearby, and Madison was only 5 minutes away where dining at the Bar Bouchèe and Madison Beach Hotel restaurants was delightful.


Great quiet spot

Situated in a convenient location on a nice piece of property. Friendly staff and reasonable rates. We stayed one night and wish we stayed longer. Carlos is the man! We will be staying there again.


Wonderful!

Our third visit to the Grandfield was even better than the first two! As usual, we had a great time with the host Tim, and fantastic breakfast served up by Carlos each morning. The pool and outdoor hot tub are fantastic, and it was wonderful to relax poolside. The linens, room, and bath were very clean. Fantastic place to stay!


Lovely Summer Days

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.
