Great Expectations but a few curious quirks.

3.0 on October 03, 2016

The building and grounds are absolutely wonderful. The mansion has large, wonderfully decorated rooms. All visitors can share almost the entire downstairs. We had the whole place to ourselves until well after 9 pm when 1 other couple arrived. The great room is huge, has a large flat screen TV and extensive film library. There is a formal dining room but breakfast is served in the more informal but bright kitchen. We reserved the 1st floor suite. We were surprised to see how spacious and comfortable the living room part of the suite was but equally surprised to see there were no doors separating it from the main part of the inn. The bedroom was likewise huge, with a glass door to the sitting room, but sparsely furnished. The comfortable king sized bed was on a raised platform. The decorative bolsters were the only pillows. There were 2 dressers and a rattan lounge chair as well as an electric fireplace. Nothing else but a coat rack - no closet. The bathroom, however, was an interesting mix of both a lavish spa tub sunk into the floor,surrounded by a forest of plants,and a public bath house. One step up from the spa, there's a shower large enough to put 8 or 9 of your closest friends in. The very large vanity had only 1 sink There was also a sauna. Altogether the bath was larger than most B&B rooms I've stayed in including the bath. No TV in either the bedroom or the sitting room. Breakfast was a treat prepared by the very sweet Carlos. A plate of fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, croissants, and good coffee. Actually we loved it all. We did not swim in the pool as it was chilly but we took a long, lovely walk along the boardwalks of Hammonasset State beach. All in all this was a marvelous but all too short getaway. I felt like a wealthy friend had given us the keys to his mansion and told us to enjoy ourselves while he left us alone. Do go before the weather gets too cold to enjoy the beach.


Amazing stay

We had an amazing time staying here. The house is historic and has so much history behind it. The ladies running the house went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. We will definitely come back and stay here so much better than any hotel we could have stayed at. People were fantastic and breakfast was delicious!


Weekend away!

My wife and I booked a weekend away for our anniversary. The house and the rooms were great! The pool and hot tub were clean and everyone there was very friendly and helpful. The only problem we had is that it was advertised as walking distance to the beach,It was 1.5 miles away. There was a free parking lot closer, but that was still .7 miles away. Besides that, I would highly recommend staying here!!

What more can i say other than our stay here was outstanding. Very informative, pleasant and we felt so welcomed the moment we walked thru the door. This place will become our go to spot we we need a little get away from everyday life.


Excellent Honeymoon Weekend

We just stayed there for a night but wish we stayed longer! What wonderful people! Excellent hospitality- we felt right at home. We had the suite upstairs with private bathroom which was great! We were by the pool all day- had patio and pool all to ourselves! Very close to beach which we went to following morning after breakfast. Beautiful quiet property! Highly recommend!


Nice, except for the shared bathroom

3.0 on August 05, 2015

The Grandfield is well located on beautiful grounds in a nice neighborhood. We did not realize until we checked in that several upstairs guest rooms (including ours) share the same bathroom. (The downstairs suite--#1--has an elegant private bath.)We probably would not have booked the room if we had known. In any case, Tim, the proprietor, Donna, the manager, and Carlos, who cooked us a delicious breakfast both days, were all very accommodating. We enjoyed eating breakfast by the pool in a nice setting.


Valentine's Weekend Stay

4.6 on February 21, 2015

We stayed at the Grandfield on a snowy Valentine's weekend and it was wonderful! Beautiful grounds - watching the snow come down! Tim the owner was very nice and knew the area well with recommendations for great dining! Breakfast was delicious each day. Our room (the master suite) was spacious, private and very comfortable! Great place to stay.


Weekend away

I stayed at the Grandfield B&B before and after my wedding. Everything about it was just perfect. From the rooms to the grounds and the complimentary breakfast. We were able to use the whole house and the beautiful grounds. I couldn't be happier with the service from Tim and Carlos. I look forward to spending more weekends at the B&B.
