Longwood is only a short 3.5 to 4.0 mile drive to Quassy. While the rooms are not inexpensive, they are nice and quiet.

You have to like antiques to really enjoy the inn. The dining room was beautiful and service was good but it was the cleanliness or rather lack there of was what did it for me. I asked to have coffee ready for 7am and it was delivered to our room so really the service was good and brunch was great but cleanliness not so much...

The Longwood Country Inn was my first stop on my road trip,and as i only found the Inn from trawling the websites for places to stay i didn't really know what to expect . I can safely say i was not disappointed from the moment i arrived i was greeted with a smile and warm conversation, the room i was provided was fabulous with all the comfort you would expect. As for the property itself it truly is a beautiful building. I would definitely recommend the Inn as a place to stay and i will be going back next year with my better half .

Regina, the Innkeeper, was extremely pleasant and made sure we were comfortable during our stay. The only thing I would change would be the cost of the room. While I understand that the maintenance on a historic building is probably quite costly, I feel that the room charge was what one would pay to stay in Manhattan or Boston rather than a small inn in CT. The dining was superb and I would even say that we would drive the one hour just to eat there again. Overall a nice place but a bit pricey for the accommodations.
