Historic B and B

3.8 on April 24, 2018

Quaint and historic but definitely for more mature traveller, but not too old as property and interior involves steep steps. Rooms were very clean and pretty, but too many decorative pieces, old linens and distressed antiques that made one afraid to put out personal items. Nice breakfast and cordial hosts.Very near Foxwoods Casino.

Innkeeper Response
Alas there is no possible way to offer door to door service to our historic property. The stone walls and tunnels on this property to far to important to history to disturb. We do hope that our homemade cookies are a reward for your efforts! In keeping with the farm house style, it is decorated with items from the past, but we believe they are to be used today! I must ad that I love old linens, especially white ones...but they are all washable! The proximity to Foxwoods and our reasonable prices attract many a travelers... and it is our hope that they will do their research and come with the knowledge that is a bed and breakfast in a historic 300 year old farm house.

- Historic it is! (innkeeper)


Cold room

4.4 on April 20, 2018

The room was very nice with one exception. It was cold. I’m not one that is critical about cold like some, but when you pay for a room you expect it to be warm and comfortable. It wasn’t. Plus the bed was not very comfortable. During breakfast I would have expected toast with the eggs, but there wasn’t any. There were muffins that were a little stale and there was no butter. These are minor issues that I would think should be taken care of.


Inkeepers were exceptionally responsive & pleasant

We will definately return for another visit.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for choosing Roseledge... we left early to begin our trip south, and missed the morning chats with our guests. We are the proud grandparents of a new baby girl born on the 16... trip was amazing!

Nice B&B

3.2 on March 01, 2018

Only problem is the difficult walk getting up to the house. Fine if you don't have walking difficulty. You have to walk uphill and navigate large deep stone steps.

Innkeeper Response
One of the things that attracted us to this old homestead of 300 years were the stone walls... little did we know that we would have no easy way to create a drive up to the house. so instead of destroying the wonderful stone walls and walks we offer you an extra cookie or two!

Mid-Week getaway

3.8 on February 26, 2018

Our stay was a Christmas gift from our daughter. She knew the location was good for us because it was close to both casino's, shopping and also to affordable and fine dinning. The house is lovely and well taken care of. Our room was spotless and filled with antiques. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was more up to date. Due to the time of year the grounds were not in bloom but I would love to go back in the spring to seen them, I'm sure the grounds are going to be beautiful. The owner, Gail was a pleasure to visit with. She and her husband enjoyed having their guests joining them to watch TV and have evening conversation. Our breakfast was great and served when we wanted it along with freshly baked cookies, Yum. If you like "Period Accommodation" you'll love it at Roseledge Country Inn. The Sullivans

Innkeeper Response
The gardens are still blanketed with snow... but bits of green from the Daffs are poking through! Thank you for choosing us and we look forward to another return!

Great midweek getaway!

3.8 on February 25, 2018

This stay was a Christas gift from our daughter. It’s a beautiful old home whose owners enjoy spending time with their guests. The season was not the best to take in the beauty of the grounds but am sure they are breathtakingly beautiful in the spring, summer and fall. Location is close to Casino’s, Shopping, and affordable to fine dining. Your stay will certainly take you back to the 1800 way of living. The Sullivans


Paper thin walls. Not private at all.

2.2 on February 12, 2018

Our experience wasn't good. Compared to the other Bed & Breaksfasts there was no privacy. The seating in the rooms is poor so you are forced to hang out in the common living room. We saw the owners family more than we'd like escpecially when the owner grabbed my ear while combing her wet hair, in the dining area, while wearign a night shirt and no pants. Just very uncomfortable. The rooms felt clean but I gave a "3" because the shampoos/soaps were not private either. Community bottles of shampoo and face scrubs. Gross.

Innkeeper Response
I have reviewed our reservations with Bed and Breakfast.com for the 2/12, sorry we had no booking from B&B.com.

- You did NOT stay here (innkeeper)


Great stay and want to come back ASAP!

4.2 on January 25, 2018

Gail was a joy and the house was very well kept. Clean while having a rustic feeling, we were very comfortable staying here. The breakfast was delicious and the bed was very comfortable! Highly recommend staying here.

We have just returned from our 3rd or 4th visit to Roseledge and will go back again. Gail is so friendly and serves great breakfasts and cookies. The beds are comfortable and there is no place cozier than her 300 year old home with a fire in the fireplace and the cats at your feet. Thanks for another wonderful visit!
