The 2013 maple syruping season was a huge success! Join us to taste the unique flavor of Connecticut syrup served on our light pancakes or our french toast. We offer two comfortable and private resting places for the weekday business traveler who wants a home away from home (ask about special rate) or the weekend wanderer seeking a short get-a-way. In addition, on the first floor you might use the Coming and Going Room to meet the needs of a growing number of our guests who need fewer frills at an affordable price. The private, detached bathroom is accessed via the breakfast room. Traveling professionals such as nurses have found a homey spot away from home. Enjoy your quiet or engage in conversation over a cup of coffee with cookies or our special chocolate cake. Hear about the lively history of the home and its architectural features, relax in the back yard, or enjoy your favorite show on the large screen TV in the sitting area.

This is the second time we’ve stayed at this lovely B&B, and it was just as warm and inviting an experience as the first time. Dave and Mary are very gracious, welcoming hosts. They are very sincere and accommodating. They made our stay one of the most pleasant aspects of our visit. We’ve stayed in both main bedrooms now, and they are equally charming and comfortable and include all the amenities you could need. The beds are extremely comfortable, and the pillows were the best we’ve encountered in a great deal of traveling. All made for a great night’s sleep. Breakfast each day was wonderful and substantial. Both Dave and Mary are good cooks. We will likely visit this area of CT again because we have relatives in the area. And when we do, we will definitely stay at this wonderful place. We would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

Mary and Dave are consummate hosts! We appreciate not only their beautiful inn and grounds, but most of all, their hospitality. They really made us feel like family. I must, of course, mention the breakfasts, especially the pancakes with Dave's own maple syrup. My husband and I stayed at Captain Josiah Cowles Place last year and hope to visit again before the year's end.

We were headed to Waterbury to see a play and were looking for a place to spend the night. Snow was expected and Mary called the day before we were to arrive to tell us we could check in early and hang out. How thoughtful! We both slept so well and woke to blueberry pancakes and two kinds of coffee (I like mine strong, but my husband doesn't). We lingered over breakfast, chatting with Mary and Dave. All around, a great place to stay!

I was in Connecticut working in Cheshire, and Dave and Mary's Inn was just a few miles from where I was assigned to be,, so it seemed like a better option than one of the national chain hotels. I love being right! I absolutley loved being there, for the entire three weeks.. I felt so at home, I volunteered to stay another three weeks, since I was already there, and having such a pleasant stay. Hurricane Sandy nixed that idea, but I truly was so content there, that I just was not feeling any great urge to head home. I had no complaints whatsoever, but to be fair to someone else considering these accomodations here you go: If you have any sort of disability that would make it difficult to climb the stairs to your room, call ahead, they may be able to put put you in the spare room downstairs, but otherwise, your room will be upstairs. If you are a television aficionado, you would probably be disapointed with the TV I had in my room, though the TV in the living room is available as well, so you'll probably survive. TV is low on my personal list of priorities, so I had no problem with it. The wireless signal in my room was on the weak side, but I was able to complete all my personal and work related tasks, so again, no complaint here, but if you're a bandwidth hog,, bring a hotspot connection! I can really only come up with two regrets about my stay. I was out so early every weekday, that I missed breakfast, and since I did get breakfast from the hosts on the weekends, I knew what I was missing; a truly outstanding breakfast!! I didn't get a chance to bake a second cheesecake. I was thrilled to be allowed the use of the kitchen to bake one for the Inn, and wanted to make a second one, and just blew it timing wise, and didn't get it done. Thanks again Dave and Mary, for letting me do the one I did, it really just added to the feeling of being at home!

Dave and Mary are exceptional hosts. Food, snacks and the accommodations were wonderful. The one area of disappointment was the bed. While there was a memory foam topping, the mattress still sagged uncomfortably in the center.
