A Cardinal House, a small Bed and Breakfast Inn specializing in small weddings, elopement ceremonies and the renewing of marriage vows, is located on Main Street in the Historic District of Glastonbury, a Connecticut River town five miles from the capital city of Hartford. The expansive manicured lawns, formal gardens, well appointed common rooms and comfortable guest rooms make A Cardinal House the perfect setting for small, intimate, private and very special ceremonies involving two to twenty five people.

A memorable stay!

This is the best BB / inn in Glastonbury. After visiting 'other' BB in Glastonbury, Cardinal House is a great place with my experiencing no allergic reactions to dust, mites or pet allergens. If you have such allergies it can ruin your wedding or weekend.
