Amazing Weeked

5 on February 15, 2015

This was my first time at a bed and breakfast and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My girlfriend and I decided to escape NYC and spend Valentine's Day in peace. The house is 300 years old and in great shape. While it is rustic, it does have all the modern amenities one could want (WiFi, Apple TV, our room had a jetted tub, etc). Gail is a lovely and friendly host and went above and beyond for her guests. There was always coffee and tea available, breakfasts were plentiful and delicious, and there were always snacks and wine around. We were hit with some pretty serious snow and my girlfriend and I decided to cancel our dinner reservations about 17 miles away due to our small, non-AWD car. Gail recommended a nearby restaurant (Village Grille) and we went and picked up food and returned. We spent our evening snowed in with a fire, food, and glass of wine. Would return anytime and definitely recommend to anyone.

Innkeeper Response
Sometimes it's OK to be snowed in! Thank you for your kind words, see you when the gardens bloom! LOL, under all this snow it may be a while!

Dream Weekend in CT

5 on June 23, 2014

My fiance and I decided to get away for a few days and chose Roseledge as our home base. It was truly a home away from home! Gail is a wonderful hostess! We never wanted for anything. Breakfasts in the morning consisted of Rhubarb muffins (my fave), farm fresh eggs and sage home fries, blueberry French toast and the all around favorite -- Sunday morning cinnamon apple pancakes. We couldn't have dreamt of a better way to start off our long days of sightseeing. In the afternoons, we were treated to lemonade and fresh baked cookies and cupcakes. There is a Keurig always ready for tea, coffee, etc., as well as water. The inn is spotless as a whole, with a comfortable living room/sitting area to enjoy. We stayed in the John Meech room, which we would definitely recommend. The decor was lovely, the bed like sleeping on a soft cloud, the bathroom more spacious than anticipated with a jetted tub. There is also a fireplace that we were sorry we couldn't use. I suppose we'll have to come back in the winter! The gardens are definitely a must see. We spent some quiet time relaxing and enjoying the sights, sounds and smells of the flowers. Breakfast in the garden was a superb way to start the day. There are plenty of spots to lounge in the garden, including a large hammock. You will also be treated to the sound of roosters in the yard (although we were never woken up by them). Although we didn't find much in the immediate area as far as food or entertainment, the inn is only a short drive away (about 20 minutes) from Mystic. Honestly, we were quite happy to be staying away from the more touristy areas. We truly can't praise Gail and her beautiful inn enough. We wanted a quiet, relaxing getaway and that is exactly what we got. Honestly, I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. I had stayed at a bed and breakfast before, and I wasn't too keen on staying in another. This experience showed how lovely a true B&B experience could be.

Innkeeper Response
As I often say you are in charge of the weather and I bake the cookies...and take care of the rest! Thank you so much for all your kind words!
