Delightful B&B

4.6 on May 24, 2017

Lovely B&B in the quiet corner of CT. Beautifully kept old house with lots of character and comfort. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable. The bed was wonderful as was the delicious breakfast. The inn keepers are friendly, helpful and provided great service. The gardens are gorgeous! I wish I had more time to enjoy them. I look forward to staying there again!


Roseledge. Quaint and the definition of serenity

4.6 on May 15, 2017

Gail, owner/operator of this fine bed and breakfast, was a most generous host. Eager to please; show you around, give the background of this historic home, and then leave you in peace. The gardens were just coming to bloom when we were there, and it already oozed fragrance and beauty. The chickens provide farm great eggs for a breakfast that hits the spot first thing in the morning. The room was very tidy and the bed very comfortable. The fresh flowers arranged immaculately in a vase on my bureau, filled the room with a divine fragrance that may have kept me there, had I not been staying on business and needed to leave. There was coffee and tea readily available, as well as delicious baked goods including lavender scones and butterscotch cookies. They made for a very nice afternoon tea in the garden. My husband and I will surly visit this wonderful home again, as it was overall, a truly magnificent stay. Thank you!


Wonderful Stay!

My girlfriend and I stayed at Roseledge for a weekend getaway. The farm is beautiful, our room was great..My girlfriend said she had the best night's sleep here! And the food! Gail can COOK. Plus, having the best ingredients grown and harvested on an organic farm doesn't hurt either. Lol! Would definitely do it again.


Great Expections

If you are looking for a real B&B experience this is the place to go.When you are there it is like taking a step back in time.We could not have had a more relaxing time.The location was great did not have to travel more than 20 minutes to places we wanted to see.Can not wait to go back when all the flowers are in bloom.


Roseledge Inn Quaint and Comfortable

4.0 on March 04, 2017

This was a great place for a mother-daughter getaway! The innkeeper Gail was very accessible and hospitable. Room was quaint and just right for us. Located close to the casinos and major highways ... we got around easily and loved Gail's restaurant and activities suggestions!


Charming

4.4 on February 25, 2017

A charming and warm farmhouse; rustic, yet comfortable and spacious rooms, each with a working fireplace. Gail and Ray were excellent hosts and made our stay a very pleasant experience. This location is also conveniently located within short drives to scenic hikes and quaint dining options. I would highly recommend this place, especially in the warmer months to take full advantage of their spacious grounds with outdoor seating to enjoy a glass of wine as the sun sets in the expansive western view.


Great place to stay

My wife and I enjoyed our first B&B experience here. Older house with charm and character. Gail and Ray were great hosts.


What a great spot!

4.0 on February 09, 2017

Gail and Ray showed us great humor and hospitality. Property was immaculate and very homie. My wife and I enjoyed ourselves in the middle of Winter with less things to do. I can imagine her land and layout would be great in the warmer months. Fireplaces in the rooms were a great touch.


Very peaceful!

5 on July 28, 2016

This was our first time to stay at a true bed and breakfast. We loved it! Gail is a wonderful host and her breakfasts are not only extremely tasty but beautiful in presentation. There are so many places to sit outdoors, peaceful and relaxing. Beautiful flower gardens and chickens strolling about. Gail gave us several suggestions of places to eat/see- we took her suggestions and were not at all disappointed. It is truly a place we want to return and tell others about!!
