Farnam Guest House

I was 'upgraded" to a large, sunny, airy room.


Another very pleasant stay at Farnum Guest House

4.8 on May 29, 2014

My wife and I stayed overnight at Farnam Guest House while visiting our son at Yale. My wife and son had stayed there a year ago, while visiting the university, and so we knew that we would have a pleasant experience. Our room , the Whitman Room, was comfortable, immaculately clean, well-lit with ample windows, yet quiet. As an extra, we had a mother robin on a nest of blue eggs on the window ledge of our room. The owner is a gracious, welcoming host. She has planted wonderful flowers and bushes around the house, and we shared gardening tips with each other. The house is on the edge of campus, and we found we could walk to restaurants and campus building easily. We recommend this B&B highly.


Excellent Accommodations

4.4 on May 28, 2014

The room was a tad small but quite comfortable. The guest house was clean, the service outstanding, and the breakfast terrific. Overall, my stay was quite enjoyable, and I would highly recommend Farnam Guest House to others.


Probably our 4th or 5th stay - very consistent and hospitable.

A great weekend at a familiar, comfortable, accomodating venue.
