Tolland, CT was named in 1713 and grew in the post road era around a typical New England town green where our building has stood for 200 years. The Tolland Inn has seven guest rooms and suite, some with fireplace, hot tubs. All of our rooms and suites have private baths, cable television, air conditioning, telephones. The inn is decorated with antiques and fine furniture hand made at the Inn. There are 3 common rooms on the first floor: a formal parlor, dining room, and the sunporch which contains a huge Rumford fireplace for chilly mornings and evenings. Convenient to UCONN , Old Sturbridge Village, Hartford, and antique shopping.

We needed a last minute reservation in the Storrs area. It has been many years since we've stayed at a bed and breakfast and thought we would try it as opposed to staying at a hotel. The inn is in a quaint, quiet town. The decor is nicely done and filled with the owner's own hand-crafted furniture. The breakfast was delicious. The inn keepers were very helpful in providing information about the area, and options for dining. We had room 2, which was clean, but small, although what I would expect from a bed and breakfast. We thought having a private hot tub would be a plus, but I would caution that the smell from the chemicals bothered me, so I would not prefer that feature again. It would be worth a return trip to try another room, perhaps one that overlooks the quiet back yard.

I couldn't ask for a more delightful stay in Connecticut. After a disastrously long car ride (NY traffic!), we were not in the best of moods. That frustration instantly melted when we arrived. We were greeted like family and treated like royalty. The house itself was magnificent and a delight to experience (extremely clean and obviously well cared for). The woodwork (done by the owner) was magnificent and details in the rooms were just fun to take in. The breakfast? OMG, no words can describe how good. Fresh fruit, scones, the world's fluffiest scrambled eggs, pumpkin pancakes...definitely worth forgetting your diet for the morning! Simply delightful on all accounts.

We spent 5 days here in May 2015 and had a wonderful time. the house is beautiful, there is ample parking right next to the house. Our innkeepers were welcoming, charming, informative and very good hosts. The room was very comfortable and breakfasts were top class. The Inn is very well situated, 5 minutes from the Interstate, with shops, cafes, diners and groceries all within easy reach.

We stay in the area once a year and every time we do we always go to the Tolland Inn. It is a comfortable and welcoming experience every time and the owners are extremely friendly and accommodating.

This is our seventh trip to Tolland Inn, so you know we love staying there. This time was no different. The Inn Keepers, Susan and Steve, are wonderful, gracious hosts. They make sure you feel at home there and have everything you need. The Inn is beautiful. Each of the rooms are well laid out, some have Jacuzzi's and they all feature some beautiful handmade furniture from Steve. The common areas are inviting. A nice sitting area near a fire place, a beautiful dining area, and a front room that has coffee and tea in the mornings, and iced tea in the afternoons. The meals are wonderful. Steve is the chef and each morning features different delicacies. There is a great secluded back yard which features a goldfish pond, nice landscaping,and comfortable lawn chairs. There is also a great wrap around porch with rocking chairs and a table and chairs. We are looking forward to our next visit!

I have been to the Tolland Inn now 3 times and every time it has exceeded my expectations. Lovely home, beyond clean, rooms are lovely, beds are comfy, the breakfast is outstanding. The Innkeepers are always welcoming and pleasant. I'm sure I will return soon as soon as I'm in the area again.
