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.
I couldn't ask for a more delightful stay in Connecticut. After a disastrously long car ride (NY traffic!), we were not in the best of moods. That frustration instantly melted when we arrived. We were greeted like family and treated like royalty. The house itself was magnificent and a delight to experience (extremely clean and obviously well cared for). The woodwork (done by the owner) was magnificent and details in the rooms were just fun to take in. The breakfast? OMG, no words can describe how good. Fresh fruit, scones, the world's fluffiest scrambled eggs, pumpkin pancakes...definitely worth forgetting your diet for the morning! Simply delightful on all accounts.
We spent 5 days here in May 2015 and had a wonderful time. the house is beautiful, there is ample parking right next to the house. Our innkeepers were welcoming, charming, informative and very good hosts. The room was very comfortable and breakfasts were top class. The Inn is very well situated, 5 minutes from the Interstate, with shops, cafes, diners and groceries all within easy reach.
This is our seventh trip to Tolland Inn, so you know we love staying there. This time was no different. The Inn Keepers, Susan and Steve, are wonderful, gracious hosts. They make sure you feel at home there and have everything you need. The Inn is beautiful. Each of the rooms are well laid out, some have Jacuzzi's and they all feature some beautiful handmade furniture from Steve. The common areas are inviting. A nice sitting area near a fire place, a beautiful dining area, and a front room that has coffee and tea in the mornings, and iced tea in the afternoons. The meals are wonderful. Steve is the chef and each morning features different delicacies. There is a great secluded back yard which features a goldfish pond, nice landscaping,and comfortable lawn chairs. There is also a great wrap around porch with rocking chairs and a table and chairs. We are looking forward to our next visit!
