A gracious New England Colonial home, Tucker Hill Inn is situated on lovely grounds and lightly shaded by ancient oaks and maples. The setting suggests rural life, yet the location is convenient to downtown business and shopping. Originally opened as a Tea Room in 1923 the Inn was on a busy trolley stop on the line to Waterbury. Within an easy drive from Tucker Hill Inn are state parks, museums, professional and community theatre, concerts and historic sites. A variety of facilities are around for water sports, golfing, indoor/outdoor tennis, fishing and hiking. Also downhill and crosscountry skiing.

The welcome of this B&B doesn't look sincere. The mattresses are old, the cleanliness of the rooms is not of that we expect. The breakfast tastes good but is not enough (no choice).
We are sorry that nothing made you happy. We would have loved for you to say something while you were here. We could have changed your room to make you more comfortable. We try to do the best we can to make our guests happy.

Had a great stay, the Innkeepers were courteous and fun. Had a very "homey" vibe.

We stayed here on Thanksgiving while visiting relatives nearby. Tucker Hill is a lovely place to stay. The house was originally built as a tea house in the 1920's and has been in commercial use ever since. The current owner has been in the business for about 30 years and everything you'd want in a B&B is here. The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds. The breakfast was delicious with bacon, pancakes, poached pears, juice, and coffee or tea. Susan was very accommodating and waited up for our late arrival after the Thanksgiving meal (around 11pm). Good wi-Fi, flat screen tv, and a refreshment center on the 2nd floor. When in the area we would certainly stay here again.

We stayed one night. This B&B was neat, clean and the hostess was helpful. Our reservation had a glitch, but I called and we worked it out. Then the hostess graciously used my bread for GF breakfast and also followed my directions to prevent cross contamination. After we left I got a phone call to let me know that I had left my jacket behind - I was able to go back and get it. It was a great experience.

Our innkeeper, Susan, was very informative about restaurants and shops in the area. The inn had a nice atmosphere- clean with all the amenities of home!

For unique charm, personal and friendly service, and beautiful, peaceful surroundings, this is the perfect place to stay. The hosts, Susan and Rich, are gracious and kind, their home-cooked breakfasts are delicious, and their house is full of comfort and lovely furnishings (hand-stitched quilts, silver breakfast service, sketches of Nathaniel Hawthorne memorabilia). There is always something well worth looking at, anywhere in the house or out of it. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Tucker Hill Inn!

A handmade, 4 poster, queen size bed was the centerpiece of our nicely appointed room. We also enjoyed a nice size bathroom with tub, however, not all rooms have attached bathrooms - read the room descriptions carefully if this is an issue for you. Breakfast was delicious & sustaining. Hundreds of movies are available for a rainy evening. Several restaurants are very close by the inn. This charming B&B is located in the middle of the western CT wine trail and has easy access to the all the major highways.

We were passing through the area on our way up to Maine. Tucker Hill was a very nice B&B and we were thrilled that they accepted young children. Definitely a place we would stay again.
