This is the noisest B&B we have ever stayed in. None of the windows in the room were doubled pained and the street noise was unbearable. The TV was an old round type and the reception was horrible. Except for Patti the hostess who was wonderful and holds the place together, this place is one step better than staying at a motel.

We found this charming B&B on our iphone app, INNTOUCH. We were traveling and booked it at the last minute on a Memorial Day. It was perfect in everyway. Great restuarants nearby. It was beautiful in the summer and looks like a perfect winter weekend getaway. We will be back. Kelley Kennedy-Lapping

Have to agree with a previous evaluation. If you are really into breakfast, you will want to walk downtown for it. Great area to walk around on a spring evening. Room was very clean and comfortable. Spring special was a great value.

B&B only applies to the weekend here. You'll do better eating at the Paperback Cafe down the street for a really GREAT breakfast. But if your happy Monday through Friday with Dunkin' Doughnut fare you'd be at the right place.

My husband and I visited this charming B&B on a midweek winter getaway. The authentic colonial atmosphere with wide pine floors, large working fireplaces, canopy beds and a large jacussi bath were just to our liking. We enjoyed wonderful hospitality from the owner with whom we shared wine and conversation in front of a roaring fire on a snowy winters night. The innkeeper was equally gracious and served us a wonderful breakfast the next morning and offered helpful suggestions about what to do in the area. My husband and I visit B&B's quite often throughout New England and this is one of our favorites!

I stayed with my husband and I loved the Inn, it is so historic and happy! My husband enjoyed a back rub there and I thought the price was just right. And we are thinking of renewing our vows there at some time only because we cannot elope!!! It was a great weekend we had fun.

We loved our room, and also viewed several other rooms which were all equally charming. The innkeeper was so friendly and helpful. Loved the jacuzzi tub and fireplace. To correct an earlier review, there are locks on several of the rooms, and on the rest there are hooks inside the room so you can lock when you're inside, so no worries there! Our breakfast was very nice but because it was a weekday, it was only pastries, yogurt and fruit, as opposed to the warm breakfast served on weekends. On our way home, we toured 3 other area B&Bs just to compare -- they were ok, but we decided next time we would definitely return to Deacon Timothy Pratt - it was perfect!

My husband and I have stayed at the Timothy Platt house twice in the month of Feb. The 1st time we stayed in the library and while it was a great room it was so hot!! The 2nd room was in the annex and it was much bigger, had a jacuzzi (as did the 1st room) and was very private. Had a great breakfast too-and was nice mingling with the guests over breakfast in the morning. We would love to go back again-

We have been charmed by the peace, quiet, and cozy comforts of this historic house. A perfect feast on the eye and as a relaxing break from the city, it couldn't be better. Thanks.

We have stayed at this B&B several times. We have tried other B&B's but keep comming back to this one. It has been hard to find one that compares. We always stay in the suite. The privacy and ambiance make for a relaxing and refreshing weekend stay. We stay here atleast 4 times per year and will keep comming back again and again!!!
