Charming doesn't begin to describe this place. I’ve stayed at a lot of B&Bs, and don't usually feel compelled to review them, but Green Acres deserves the effort. We stayed for two very comfortable nights while we explored the Hartford area. I would like to return during high season, as the pool and grounds looked like they would be gorgeous in the summer. Still, we got to enjoy the house’s fireplaces and cozy interior. The house retains all the best parts of 18th century architecture/embellishments while adding luxury bathrooms, memory foam mattresses, well-stocked mini-fridges, and sherry. The grounds host a brood of free-range hens, which the proprietor will let you visit (when the weather’s good, the chickens can also accompany you on the patio for breakfast if you want). The house is also home to several adorable derpy dogs, so prepare your best “aww”s. The proprietor is very warm and a great cook. I often find that breakfasts at B&Bs can be a little awkward if the host hovers etc., but the atmosphere at Green Acres was very relaxed and laissez-faire. The house is right on a main road (a charming, smallish main road, but a main road nonetheless). We didn’t have any trouble with the noise, but the rooms come with white noise machines, so it’s clearly something that the proprietor has thought of. The other minor issue was that the upstairs bedrooms were both pretty warm at night (but better too hot than too cold in March?). We ended up using fans (conveniently located in the closets) for the second night. To be fair, it didn’t occur to us to ask the proprietor about the temperature—there was probably a way to adjust it. In short: I would highly recommend Green Acres; in fact we’re looking for excuses to return to Hartford just to stay there again.

Very kind, attentive innkeepers. Loved the home. Very charming. The wide plank pine floors are my favorite. Excellent breakfasts both mornings.

My husband and I stayed at Green Acres for one night before Thanksgiving. Cathy and Jim were so kind and welcoming and we had a very restful stay. Their home is clean and very comfortable and we had everything we could ever want, including homemade cookies (YUM!) and coffee anytime. Breakfast was fantastic and generous! I wish we could have stayed longer, but we will definitely be back to stay the next time we visit Hartford. Thank you so much!

Perfect mix of modern and vintage. Jim and Cathy were wonderful, gracious hosts and didn't leave a detail to be missed. Greeted with a warm welcome, cream sherry and homemade cookies and fresh roses in the room. The bed was more comfortable than many hotels. Breakfast was delicious and the spread was beautiful. Definitely looking forward to returning!

The Green Acres B&B is terrific. We arrived late at night to the kind and helpful Jim. The room, the bedding, the amenities could not be better. We will definitely return
