This was our second stay at Lower Farm in the past few years, and once again, we were not disappointed. Mary and Jon make the consummate host, and help make the experience even more charming and excellent. The rooms are bright and beautifully decorated in the period of the building, and the grounds are stunningly peaceful and beautifully appointed! Plus, it is well located among many wonderful towns and tourist attractions. L & B

This was our 2nd trip to the Inn at Lower Farm and it was once again a fantastic get away for a long weekend. The locations is terrifiic! Close to the casino (if you like that kind of thing) or close the small seaside villages, wineries, golf courses, beaches, etc. We brought our friends with us this time and they were thrilled with everything about the inn and the relaxation it provides. No TV, no stress, no running,....just relax, go for walk, or bike ride along the beautiful shoreline and end the day at a great local restaurant like the Capt Daniel Packer Inn. We will be back. Thanks to John and Mary for providing such a great escape

Staying at Jon and Mary's Inn was like stepping back in time, but with all the modern amenities needed. The Emily Ayn room was large, with a very comfortable bed and private bath-plenty of hot water and great pressure. Although all rooms were full when we stayed for a long weekend, there was not a sound at night! There is AC, but it was even better to open the windows and enjoy the New England air. Mornings brought the smell of hot coffee, muffins, and Mary's gourmet breakfasts wafting over the gardens as we strolled the acreage, finding tucked away sitting areas and chipmunks skipping along the stonewalls. We saw the hives where the bees were busy making the Inn's own honey and the garden where the herbs and berries were picked for our meal. At the dining table, made from antique wood by Mary's brother, we enjoyed the easy chatter with other guests, mostly comments about the delicious food. No one seemed anxious to leave the table for all the sightseeing visits they had planned. We all lingered even longer on our check-out dates! Jon and Mary are on the spot with helpful hints, fulfilling special requests, and just being gracious. This Inn is everything you could want in the quiet, rural, but convenient SE CT! We visit the area often, but now have found a special place to stay.

Found a gem of a B&B here! Mary and Jon made us feel right at home immediately, and they couldn't do enough for us, without being intrusive at all! Just the house, alone, is an incredible find! Updated with modern amenities, (each room with own private bath!), but still appreciated the 1700s wideboard floors, bumpy plastered walls, an "Alice in Wonderland" checkerboard landing, that have received so much care, respect and cleanliness in this/their home! Lovely well-manicured grounds with berry bushes and a significant vegetable garden (missed out on Mary's fresh vegetable frittata or her blueberry waffles, as it was too early yet), hummingbird feeders and a quaint outside, shaded sitting area.. Cannot recommend highly enough.. We will most definitely be back.
