My daughter and I stayed here the night before she moved into her freshman dorm at Yale. It is not far from the campus and on the Yale shuttle line. We stayed in the Eleanor Dow suite which you could live in. It was comfortable and cozy. Elizabeth was helpful with suggestions on location and places for dinner. Breakfast was fresh and quite good. We enjoyed our stay here and as I return to the Yale campus over the next 4 years I plan to stay here every time I visit.

the Guest House is clean and well kept and the room is spacious. The breakfast is quite disappointing, with little variety and heavily based on fried foods.
Thanks for your review. We serve traditional breakfast of usually scrambled eggs and bacon or sausage, fresh fruit, orange juice, croissants and coffee and tea!

This B&B's website photos matched the actual appearance and conditions. It was very clean, pleasant and details for my stay were simple and easy. I met other's traveling to Yale for various reasons so the tenants were worldly. The atmosphere lends it to be as private and autonomous with opportunities for socializing locally. It is in a safe neighborhood too!
Wow! This review was very encouraging to me. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We try very hard to keep the guest house a beautiful spot for travelers and I am happy for your outstanding review! Thank you very much.

ok but not great. room was cramped, bathroom actually outside the room itself, shower had great pressure, TV in room was actually a small computer monitor that was on a desk so impossible to see from the bed itself. breakfast was ok but not great. location is good, parking also easy/good
Thank you for your review with lots of deails about the Whitman Room and the traditional breakfasts we serve. Glad you enjoyed some things tho!!!

The host was very nice and the rooms were very clean. While the breakfast in general was good, we didn't like the combination of waffles and sausages on one of the days.
It was good to have you stay with us and I very much hope that next time you will tell us what you would prefer to eat for breakfast as we make every effort to make everything very special. Hope you will come again.

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.
You have written such a detailed and beautiful review. I am so glad you enjoyed your time with us and the robin on her nest of beautiful blue eggs was very, very special. I am happy that you made us aware of her. We did see the babies a little later, but I did not want to disturb her too much. Thanks for posting the pictures on our facebook page!! Very special.
