Built in 1897, this historic Victorian Inn has been maintained in its original condition. Many original stained glass windows, hand carved paneling accents the dining room and staircase which has rope twist banisters. Three guest rooms all with private bathrooms. All of the decorations will take you back to the Victorian era with modern amenities such as guest phone, air conditioning, TV, a jetted tub. A full hot 3 course breakfast is served each morning. In addition the town of Bristol has been lovingly restored and maintained with many eclectic shops such as Honeylights which features hand made beeswax candles that are sold by Martha Stewart.
This room has a Queen sized brass bed with TV and original claw foot tub and shower surround. There is a fireplace in the room but it is only decorative. This was the Master suite for the original owner, is decorated with antiques and oriental rugs and is the most elegant.
This room has a Queen sized four poster bed and the attached bathroom has a whirlpool tub. This room is on the south side of the house and as such gets lots of sunshine.
This room is the largest of all the bedrooms and features an antique Mahogany bedroom set. The dressers and tables are all marble topped. There is a large antique oriental rug in the middle of the floor and the room has a TV.

We had such a delightful stay at the Crystal Palace with Innkeepers Steve and Stacie - Crystal Palace is a hidden gem in the charming town of Bristol. We will definitely be back.

Stephen & Stacie Ayotte were fantastic, friendly, welcoming hosts. We stayed for 2 nights with the romantic package and I believe it was extremely under priced. What a beautiful B&B for an amazing deal. You can NOT beat the service and kindness you'll receive here. Would definitely recommend the Crystal Palace and hope to return there ASAP.

Very nice B&B. It was very clean and the innkeepers were very nice. If you want a big breakfast this is the place for you! Delicious and creative meals were served with nice conversation thrown in. If you love dogs, they will call them in so you can spend some time with them. If you are not a dog lover, they are so well behaved they will stay out of the way. I would stay here again, and the town and location was very nice.
