About

This lovingly restored, Gilded Age Victorian is a Norfolk tradition, owned and hosted by Dean and Jean Marie Johnson. Nestled in the scenic Litchfield Hills of Northwest Connecticut, Mountain View Inn is the closest Inn to Yale's Summer Chamber Music Festival and Infinity Music Hall. A short 5 minute walk to either. During your stay, we invite you to enjoy period appointments, an Art Gallery featuring original paintings and Giclee prints, along with The Gilded Peacock, a Whimsical Vintage Boutique. Our Oak paneled Great Room accommodates private parties and special interest events for the culturally minded. Our brand new Victorian Courtyard is the perfect setting for an outdoor wedding and our Uniquely decorated guestrooms with private baths offer spacious, comfortable accommodations filled with period antiques. Mountain View is located 1/4 mile south of the quintessentially New England village Town Green (voted "prettiest green in Connecticut")and Norfolk's Town Center featuring Infinity Music Hall & Bistro, Mizza's Pizza, The Artisan's Guild and other speciality shops offering unique treasures. With over 80% of its land preserved, Norfolk is home to 3 State Parks. There are hiking trails in the parks as well as in Land Trust areas. * Norfolk is the home of Yale University's Summer School of Music and Art.

A very pleasurable and stress-free stay

5 on March 30, 2014

I've never written one of these reviews before, but I was so pleased with the Mountain View Inn that I wanted to spread the word. We were in town to attend a concert, and left by 9:30 the next morning, so our stay was brief. The room was great, the food was delicious, but best of all, the hosts were warm and unpretentious, while at the same time interesting folk to talk to.


Perfect Stay

The Mountain View Inn is the perfect bed and breakfast nestled in a cozy region of Connecticut. Dean and his wife do a wonderful job with hospitality. The Inn is a beautiful gigantic and historic home.


An outstanding stay.

We were blessed to stay at the Mountain View Inn this past weekend, while visiting several local waterfalls. Our hosts, Dean and Jean Marie (and we mustn't forget Miss Noelle!), were genuine and warm throughout our stay, and had many good recommendations for local area attractions. Our room, The Felix, was spectacular. We wanted to steal the plush, wonderful bed and bring it home! Overall, the stay was unparalleled, and we plan to return as soon as we are able


Delightful Discovery!

The perfect birthday surprise!

A gem in the hills

My bride and I spent several wonderful days courtesy of Dean and Jean Marie! We both loved the Victorian decor, and friendliness of the innkeepers. The room was immaculate, and the breakfasts (especially Dean's coffee), were superb! Even their poodle, Noelle, made us feel at home. Thanks again, for making our honeymoon special!

My wife and I went away on a whim and ended up finding the Mountain View Inn on this website. We coudn't have been more pleased, the accomodations exceeded our expectations and the people couldn't have been nicer, not to mention the breakfast was amazing. I will absolutely recommend them and plan to visit in the near future. Doug and Rebecca


Simply Splendid!!

My husband & I stayed at the MV Inn for our first anniversary after seeing a show at the Infinity Music Hall. Our stay was perfect - from the ambiance of the room to the delightful breakfast in the morning. The house is just as pictured in photos - positively beautiful - museum quality yet comfortable and inviting. We will definitely be staying there again - happy to be quests of the very gracious Dean & Jean Marie. ~ Lauren & Shem

Mountain View Inn awaits you...

5 on January 08, 2013

Hidden within the lavish evergreen forest of small town quaint Norfolk lies the exquisitely beautiful Mountain View Inn. At first glance a weary traveler may inquire about the mountain view vantage point so evident in the name; however, once settled in any of the spacious and elegantly appointed rooms you will find that from every window views are simply breathtaking. Upon arrival you are greeted with a warm feeling of good-old-fashioned Southern Hospitality from the kindred spirits of the Northern Couple and owners Jean Marie and Dean Johnson and the unforgettable, absolutely adorable, and charming white poodle “Miss Noel.” Once settled in visitors can walk, jog, bike, or drive through the Old American town and revel in the regal beauty of community and family that irrevocably define the American lifestyle in all its glory. Or perhaps one fancies nightlife and opts to enjoy a performance at The Infinity Hall, which also is in walking distance. Whatever your niche may be you will get a dose of it here. Weather you yearn for inspiration for your great American novel or just need a quick excursion from the hustle and bustle of city life. This home and its surroundings will be sure to reinvigorate all your senses providing you with a wonderful breath of fresh air, vitality, and energy as you emerge in a transcendental state of requiem.
