Traveling Alone

5 on April 08, 2014

I often travel alone to visit my son and staying at a B&B provides a homey atmosphere in a safe neighborhood. "So what brings you to New Haven?" is a typical question asked at breakfast. Meeting such interesting people is much preferred to dining alone at a hotel!


family visit

4.4 on March 27, 2014

Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. We liked the room very much and it is very close to the college. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone.


pleasant B&B

Amazing B&B!

5 on March 10, 2014

Quiet and romantic getaway in Nee Haven. Spent some of our honeymoon here. The staff and innkeeper are very accommodating. The room and house are perfect. A must for couples looking for a B&B at an affordable price!

Innkeeper Response
I am so glad you stayed with us for part of your honeymoon and I do hope you have a an at-one marriage. My very best wishes to you both


Safe, clean, and welcoming guest house

5 on February 26, 2014

I have stayed in several guest houses in the Americas and Europe, and this was certainly my best experience. The house is located in a quiet and safe neighbourhood, a few steps from the Yale Blue Line shuttle, that will take you to the campus in 5 minutes. It has a great variety of amenities: a welcome breakfast for your first day, fast wifi, a variety of things to drink at all times (bottles of fresh water, coffee, tea), cookies. Everything is clean, everything is comfortable. But most importantly, Elizabeth, the host, is a nice and welcoming lady who will make everything to make you feel at home. She will tell you about the things to do in town, take you to do groceries if necessary, and try to accommodate all your needs, while also respecting your space and your privacy. I stayed here for one full month, and If I come back to New Haven, I will certainly stay here again.

Innkeeper Response
"My very best experience" - such a high accolade is most welcome. Thank you for these words.
