The B&B at Bartlett Farm

564 Great Hill Rd. , Guilford, CT 06437 USA (Show map)


The farmhouse at Bartlett Farm has been in the Bartlett family since it was built in 1784. The house was updated in the 1990’s, while the surrounding farm is a work in progress. Bartlett Farm is active year round, Maple syruping in late winter, maintaining a small market garden, and haying fields throughout the spring and summer and finishing the year with Christmas trees. The farm has a menagerie of animals that require daily care and attention, including Fallow Deer, cows, ducks, chickens and a bison. The common living room has a working fireplace and a TV, where guests can relax before they head out for the evening or when they return. When the weather is warm enough the wrap around porch is a great place for catching up on your reading or just relaxing.

Wonderful place to stay!

This was our first experience with a bed and breakfast, and we had a great time. The food was delicious and the family goes out of their way to make sure that everything is perfect. We highly recommend the place.

Our first choice

My family and I have stayed here several times. I am originally from CT and have family in Guilford. Once I found this place, there is no other place I would consider staying. Sam, Diane and their children have always made our visits pleasant. Diane is a wonderful cook and always uses farm fresh ingredients. The wrap around porch is just wonderful for an evening cup of tea and a good book. Getting ready to book another stay soon.

Took me back to my youth

I stayed here with my 2 children. They thoroughly enjoyed exploring the farm. It was a huge change for them from the sun and surf of FL. The room was beautiful and comfy...yummy country breakfasts. The Bartletts are of a wonderful, welcoming family.

Serenity at the Bartlett Farm

5 on July 27, 2008

Our stay was so peaceful and serene. To wake up to the friendly rooster saying goodmorning to the wind blowing gently through the trees singing you to sleep. Bartlett family went above and beyond to make our stay welcoming. Breakfasts were fabulous and we got to bring home 4 qts of farm made Maple Syrup back to Texas with us. Rooms brought you back in time and so comfortable. We will definately be back and tell all our friends about it too!! Thank you Diane and Sam.
