A gracious New England Colonial home, Tucker Hill Inn is situated on lovely grounds and lightly shaded by ancient oaks and maples. The setting suggests rural life, yet the location is convenient to downtown business and shopping. Originally opened as a Tea Room in 1923 the Inn was on a busy trolley stop on the line to Waterbury. Within an easy drive from Tucker Hill Inn are state parks, museums, professional and community theatre, concerts and historic sites. A variety of facilities are around for water sports, golfing, indoor/outdoor tennis, fishing and hiking. Also downhill and crosscountry skiing.

Quiet & Very Comfortable B&B

Sandra & Richard were very helpful and very nice. Their Inn is located in a very quiet wooded neighborhood. We found the Scarlet Room just like it was pictured. We slept well and the breakfast was great. Just note that the Scarlet Room has its own bathroom, some others use a common bathroom. There is a walking/bike path just a short distance away that takes you to the beach, shops, restaurants, etc. We enjoyed biking the trail (~5 miles end to end). Sandra recommended a few restaurants for us to try, which were good and were reasonable.

Nice experience

I had a great stay at Tucker Hill Inn unlike other B&B's I've stayed in the past this felt like you were really staying in someone's home. The home owners were very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was delicious. There was a bit of dusting needed in the room but it is expected in an old home. Overall and very nice experience.

Excellent Bed and Breakfast

Susan and Richard are lovely hosts. Their home is historically beautiful and sits in a lovely location. We will definitely return.

Charming and delightful

We had a wonderful time in this most charming Bed and Breakfast. Our hosts were delightful and the environment was most relaxing and captured perfectly the old New England flavor. Ed and Michele

A lack of cleanliness

1.4 on August 22, 2014

The welcome of this B&B doesn't look sincere. The mattresses are old, the cleanliness of the rooms is not of that we expect. The breakfast tastes good but is not enough (no choice).

Innkeeper Response
We are sorry that nothing made you happy. We would have loved for you to say something while you were here. We could have changed your room to make you more comfortable. We try to do the best we can to make our guests happy.

Relaxing, Fun Stay

Had a great stay, the Innkeepers were courteous and fun. Had a very "homey" vibe.

Very pleasant

We stayed here on Thanksgiving while visiting relatives nearby. Tucker Hill is a lovely place to stay. The house was originally built as a tea house in the 1920's and has been in commercial use ever since. The current owner has been in the business for about 30 years and everything you'd want in a B&B is here. The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds. The breakfast was delicious with bacon, pancakes, poached pears, juice, and coffee or tea. Susan was very accommodating and waited up for our late arrival after the Thanksgiving meal (around 11pm). Good wi-Fi, flat screen tv, and a refreshment center on the 2nd floor. When in the area we would certainly stay here again.

Great Hosts

We stayed one night. This B&B was neat, clean and the hostess was helpful. Our reservation had a glitch, but I called and we worked it out. Then the hostess graciously used my bread for GF breakfast and also followed my directions to prevent cross contamination. After we left I got a phone call to let me know that I had left my jacket behind - I was able to go back and get it. It was a great experience.
