Pam and Larry's beautiful house is one of the most peaceful places I've ever laid my head. My fiancée and I came out to Guilford for a few days at Sound Reach and wish we could have stayed a month! The house is comfortable and stylish, informed by Pam's Scandinavian-inspired aesthetic. Larry's career in music also means that the place is filled with all kinds of fun instruments. But the only sound we heard at Sound Reach most of the day was the symphony of birdsong coming in from the woods. The views south from the front deck are a delight, and the breakfast waiting for us in the morning was delicious. We're looking forward to a return visit.

We had several days of business in Guilford and consider ourselves lucky to have chosen Sound Reach B&B. We felt like we had our own quiet retreat in the woods, albeit with a delicious breakfast served up every morning! Pam and Larry are extraordinarily gracious hosts and caring individuals who know the local places to go and things to do. We highly recommend anyone needing accommodations anywhere near Guilford to stay Sound Reach Bed & Breakfast.

We fell in love with Sound Reach from the moment we arrived. A wonderful peaceful retreat tucked away amongst the trees far from the maddening crowd. But still within only a few minutes drive from the small town of Guilford, 1-95, and Hammonasset State Park with its beautiful shoreline. Pam, Larry & your best buddy Dolce the dog, aka Mr Happy are the most welcoming hosts, great company and are always keen to assist with any requirements. The guest quarters are tastefully furnished with a homely & comfortable feel, and the healthy fresh breakfast along with home baked fare is a perfect start to the day. We will definitely return next time we are in the area.

I found this gem while looking for a place to stay in my old hometown to visit family. My son and I stayed in the room with two twin beds, and were pleasantly surprised to find out that half of the house was ours--Pam said she only rents out one room at a time, so no one has to worry about shared bathrooms. We had room to stretch out and enjoy coffee in the living room while working on our laptops. Pam and Larry made sure coffee was ready for me upon my early awakening. I so enjoyed taking the coffee out to deck and enjoy a cool morning sunrise from the east, with the views of Long Island in the distance to the south. The absolute forest silence giving way to birds tweeting was something you simply won't find in a hotel! The breakfasts were simple and delicious, and the conversation with Pam and Larry was a nice bonus. Two very interesting people with stories to tell. We will absolutely be back.

A lovely, quiet, comfortable place to stay. Pam and Larry are warm, welcoming hosts. We felt so well-cared-for were sorry to leave and my husband and I look forward to returning to Sound Reach when we are back again in the area.

Sound Reach is a very pleasant surprise, so relaxing and quiet high on the hill overlooking the canopy of trees with a view all the way to Long Island Sound but close enough to all attractions and highways. We enjoyed the lovely woods and trails and gardens and the rooms were beautiful. And the breakfasts were worth the price alone! Will definitely be going back.

Just when I didn’t think I could find an affordable B&B, I was delighted to discover Sound Reach while on a trip to visit family & friends this spring. It is close to the best of the shoreline, but off the beaten path enough for enjoying some quiet time. Pam and Larry were lovely hosts, breakfasts were the fresh, healthy fare I crave, and the room was comfortably furnished with a light, airy touch. And nothing can beat waking up to the sound of the birds in their lush, green setting in the Connecticut woods. I’ve already recommended it to friends and am looking forward to my next visit this fall!

Pam & Larry made us feel very welcome and relaxed. The setting is peaceful and the goldfinches are abundant. Very personal, at home feel - we hope to return in the near future!

This bnb remains one of my husband's and my favorite places to stay. We always ask for the room with twin beds so we can "pretend" we see the Sound from there--actually I think you can almost do so. Just our kind of place, woodsy, comfy chairs, excellent library, beautiful garden, friendly dog (hosts also a lot of fun), scrumptious breakfasts. During a cross-country move we ended up staying there a week one time, and we were always made to feel as if we were home already.

This is a wonderfully peaceful spot, very quiet. It is just a sublime pocket of hospitality in the woods. Conservation land is the backyard of the b&b and a pretty walking path is right out the back door.

The setting and the house are just as described, the view from the deck enchanting. Pam & Larry are such gracious hosts. We enjoyed roaming the woods behind their house. We really liked being close enough to sites and attractions, while coming 'home' to the remote, relaxing setting in the countryside. The room was very comfortable, the breakfasts excellent. We hope to make a return visit.

I found this B+B to be very clean. The food was good and the staff was very helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone. Was in walking distance of the ferry dock. A+
