Lovely Gardens

3.8 on August 29, 2018

The gardens are lovely. We were not able to enjoy them as it was raining. We had to leave early before breakfast but were given homemade blueberry muffins. Location is ideal near Mystic and Foxwoods.

Relaxing, charming B&B

4.6 on August 27, 2018

Stayed 2 nights and had a relaxing visit. Grounds were beautiful and loved the chickens and roosters wandering around. The room we had was so charming and we could hear the roosters in the morning. Had great conversations with the owner and the other guests. Definitely worth a visit!

It was so relaxing. I slept till 8:30 and I normally get up by 7. The breakfast was excellent and our host was charming.

Needs some TLC

Disappointed in the up keep on the inn. From a distance the place looks lovely, but up close you can see the place has not been kept up. As much as I wanted to give this place rave reviews in my heart I felt it would be a disservice. The bedroom appeared to be very nice until I notice the knobs missing off the dresser and the sagging bed. Also, the stairs leading up to the house were hazardous. I must say that the yard was simply beautiful and the atmosphere was peaceful.

Innkeeper Response
Our farm/inn is an original colonial built before 1720, and we will be the first to admit at times it becomes tired. But with nearly 300 years of wear and tear who wouldn't be! We hope with the 100 percent we strive to give, fresh flowers in the rooms, yummy homemade cookies, muffins and bedding hung on the line to dry in the country fresh air, you will leave Roseledge renewed. The mattresses here are top of the line Kingkol, topped with a pillow topper. It may have been this that made the bed seem saggy to you. Here its all about the Bed and the Breakfast, and as you asked we adjusted your food needs to accommodate your requests. As for the stone stairs up to the front yard, I will give you this the are grand... built in a wall that is called a HaHa, (English word) the original purpose of this antique wall was to keep the farm animals from the front of the house. But as you found there are other ways in and out of this property. Thank you for noticing our gardens, we look forward to seeing your pictures.

- Built to last. (innkeeper)

We Love Roseledge

5 on August 18, 2018

This was our 5th time visiting Roseledge, although it has been aboutv5 years since our last visit. Roseledge is perfectly situated within 10 min drive to either Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun casinos. The rooms are perfect for either relaxation or a romantic getaway. The breakfast is always spectacular. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

Innkeeper Response
See you folks again soon! Its almost pie time!

- Always welcome (innkeeper)

My new favorite!

Roseledge was an amazing bed and breakfast, the property was so beautiful and the hospitality was even better. This property was the perfect location for so many activities. We were there for only 3 days and visited both casinos within 10-15 minutes of the home, we went to mystic for a nearby street fair and dinner on the water and then hiked in Rhode Island 20 minutes away! Couldn’t have asked for a better stay!!

Charming B&B

4.8 on August 15, 2018

We loved the historic and authentic look and feel of Roseledge. Our room was quite comfortable and spacious as well. The grounds were gorgeous, with a ton of flowers, a pond, and we saw beautiful roosters strutting around in the morning! The homemade breakfasts each morning were delicious and way more then we could finish! All in all it was a lovely stay and we would absolutely recommend!

Feels like home

My first Bed and Breakfast and I have to tell you, it felt like I was home. It was quaint, comfy and homely. Gayle's positive energy sets the tone for the day. Near plenty of things to do..

Great Country Inn and Yummy Breakfast. The Best!

4.2 on August 01, 2018

Wonderful place for some R & R. Breakfast was included and both mornings was absolutely delicious. The garden grounds are very pretty. The Inn is very old which I loved.The room we stayed in is on the second floor. There is no TV in the room. There is a TV in a den room on the first floor which we did watch for awhile. No central air as the Inn is very old. There is a/c unit in the window in the room which worked very well. Bathroom was sufficient. The only downside is for someone with a walking problem there are some high stone steps to get to the house and some rock walkways. We did not have a problem. Enjoy your stay great place.

Wonderful B&B
