Stayed at the Tolland Inn because it was closest to our wedding reception venue (The Lodge at Crandall Park), but it turned out to be the nicest option and the least expensive option for one of our guests. These innkeepers know hospitality. The in-room hot tubs are always full and hot and ready to relax your tired bones. The breakfasts (we stayed two nights) were fantastic and served up hot (not just a buffet of muffins and dry cereal). Each meal included sweet and savory and was just delicious. The grounds were lovely for our photos, too. Steve made most of the furniture in the inn and it's absolutely gorgeous and the styles fit right in with the antique feel of this historic inn. My ONLY criticism is that when we brought a snack back to our suite (as the brides we got the best one, the treehouse suite), the only table to eat at was quite small, smaller even than the gameboard they keep on it. But we managed. Maybe they discourage in-room eating; not sure. The hosts were extremely pleasant and LGBT friendly.
We stayed here on our honeymoon, and we try to come here for our anniversaries--making our way through each of the rooms! It's a beautiful, relaxing place to be, full of charm. Stephen and Susan are wonderful hosts -- they've put their heart and soul into making this inn lovely.
Their is no better B&B then the Tolland Inn , Susan and Steve are the best Host you will meet This was our 5 Time their and enjoy it as it was the first time ... looking forward to our next trip their in October ... Anthony & Seri
Our three night stay could not have been nicer. Situated on a lovely green and conveniently located near I-84 and UConn, the Tolland Inn is a charming place run by really cool innkeepers Susan and Steve. (Steve's amazing woodworking pieces are throughout the house.) Our room was spacious and nicely decorated, and breakfasts were as delicious as they were ample. Our room was spacious and nicely decorated. And if you like to walk or run, there is a park nearby that is quiet with lots of paths. A great experience all around!
As always, we had a wonderful stay and a delicious breakfast. We really appreciated the homemade cookies waiting for us and it's always special when our hostess prepares an amazing breakfast that includes breakfast sausage. Food was outstanding and service was perfect. A very cozy room!
We just wish we'd had more time here. The place is charming and the hosts are very nice and helpful. We asked for dinner suggestions and went to a place we would never have found but thoroughly enjoyed. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful and we enjoyed the other guests, a nice bonus.
We had never stayed at a B & B before and were somewhat apprehensive of the gift given to us by our daughter. Any concerns that we had vanished within moments of arriving and meeting Susan and Steve. They were extremely welcoming and friendly and gave us the feeling of meeting our family members or close friends. The entire Inn is appointed with period furniture and accents that were made by Steve. He is a master at what he does, both in his wood working shop and in the kitchen. No better way to start the day but with a delicious and plentiful breakfast prepared by him, outstanding. Hearing the history of the Inn was a very informative conversation with Susan as she narrated and showed us photos of what it was like, to what you see today. Their dreams, visions and allot of hard work transformed a very old tired looking building into the impressive Inn that it is today. Our room was beautifully appointed, neat and extremely clean as is the rest of the Inn. Staying at the Tolland Inn definitely sets the bar way too high to ever be this satisfied elsewhere. We will definitely return on our next trip to Connecticut and we thank them both for such a pleasant and enjoyable stay. Dee and John, Farmingville, NY
Steve and Sue are terrific people who run a great establishment. They do their best to make you feel at home and like a part of the family. I would recommend to anyone looking for a nice weekend getaway to choose the Tolland Inn.
We were very pleased with our stay at the Inn. Susan and Steven are gracious host. The room was very clean. It was great having the fireplace and hot tub in our unit. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The location was perfect for our ability to easily reach UConn.
My husband and I stayed here twice and all I can say is its like visiting relatives and staying in their best room. Susan and Steve are experts in hospitality. If you're looking for peace and quiet, you've got it. -Britt and Art
Steve and Susan are delightful people and their hospitality is amazing. We had a wonderful time spending the Thanksgiving Holiday at their Inn while visiting family. The bedroom was comfortable and cozy, and the breakfasts were delicious. We also enjoyed eating with the other guests; it was like eating with family. Thank you.
Everything we experienced at the Tolland Inn was first class! My wife was enthralled with the Colonial era home and period furniture. Our hosts were most welcoming and helpful with information about the area. We would definitely visit again if in the area.
For the past several years, when we travel to Maine we always stop for the first night at the Tolland Inn. It is conveniently located minutes from the Interstate, the accommodations are perfect, the breakfast is terrific, and the innkeepers, Steve and Susan, are the perfect hosts. We have stayed in four different rooms over the years and all have been very comfortable and well-appointed. We look forward to our staying there again on our way to and from Maine.
I am from Tolland and no longer have family up there so we stay at the Inn 2x a year when we visit. Love the place...Stephen is a talented craftsman and his work is everywhere in the Inn. Susan is extremely friendly, helpful and engaging- remembers us every year! I am planning on staying there this weekend and hope that they stocked you on those wonderful cinnamon scones!!!
Steve and Susan were magnificent hosts, warm and accommodating in their lovely house. Breakfast in a beautiful setting with other guests made the experience very homely. Unlike our Airbnb experiences where there was only a bed - no breakfast - Steve and Susan served up a generous freshly cooked breakfast.We can recommend this Bed and Breakfast very highly.
This is a classic New England B&B. The innkeepers have given great attention to all the details that make for a comfortable stay, and of course the breakfasts are very satisfying. The decor even includes original paintings by Stephen.
Susan and Stephen went out of their way to welcome us to the Tolland Inn. Generous breakfast was lovingly prepared and served with flexibility to our taste, and our suite was large, comfortable and quiet. The Inn is gorgeously appointed with hand made furniture crafted by Stephen and little aged details that added to its charm and authenticity. This place is a gem, and a wonderful introduction to Connecticut!
We needed a last minute reservation in the Storrs area. It has been many years since we've stayed at a bed and breakfast and thought we would try it as opposed to staying at a hotel. The inn is in a quaint, quiet town. The decor is nicely done and filled with the owner's own hand-crafted furniture. The breakfast was delicious. The inn keepers were very helpful in providing information about the area, and options for dining. We had room 2, which was clean, but small, although what I would expect from a bed and breakfast. We thought having a private hot tub would be a plus, but I would caution that the smell from the chemicals bothered me, so I would not prefer that feature again. It would be worth a return trip to try another room, perhaps one that overlooks the quiet back yard.
