"Great Place to Stay!" TripAdvisor Review -- In the rolling hills of one of Connecticut's most beautiful villages the upscale Orange Gild Bed and Breakfast has just opened their doors for you this summer: a classic New England Saltbox on the outside, modern European comfort on the inside. Enjoy the spacious guestrooms, relax in our luxurious wellness area and try some traditional Dutch dishes at your lavish breakfast like 'poffertjes', 'spekpannenkoek', or 'krentenbollen', all home made using our grandmothers' recipes. The creative owners also give painting (plain-air) and flower arranging workshops, very reasonably priced for guests. Washington is a perfect under two hours getaway for New Yorkers. You will find ample shopping possibilities and art galleries in the area. You can spend your time actively with hiking, biking, and driving in the scenic Litchfield Hills. The Orange Gild is close to many boarding schools in the Litchfield Hills in Connecticut.

We stayed here one night while in town for summer camp drop-off. The hosts, Mariane and Ron, were very kind and unobtrusive. They gave us a few dinner recommendations for local places that could accommodate my dietary requirements, pointed us in the direction of some antique shops, lent us a map (phone service spotty in the area, although the inn itself has wifi), and we were off. The room was extremely relaxing, well kept, and very tastefully decorated. Bed was huge and comfortable. Perhaps the best part was the homemade Dutch breakfast the next morning; tasty and chock-full of seasonal fruits. Highly recommended.

A fairly new B&B but surely here to stay for a long time. We were here a few nights and it was absolutely superb. We stayed in the Pasithea room which was beautifull and spacious. Loved the very nice decorated bathroom with wirlpool. The owners are very kind and highly service minded, you can ask them for anything. Downstairs the living room and dining room are available for the guests and have a very nice atmosphere. Included are various drinks. Location is also great, very nice surroundings and lots of great places to visit during the day. The breakfast is everything that is mentioned on the website: lavish. From (Dutch) pancakes to home made muffins and smoothies. In one word: Perfect. Next time we are in New England, we will definitely book this B&B again.
