Phenomenal B&B

The room was very comfortable; especially the bed. The house was very well restored and nicely decorated. The breakfasts were amazing.

A Truly Charing Stay

A pleasure to meet Jim and Cathy. Perfect hosts, a great place to stay and breakfast was wonderful, more than we both could ever expect to eat. Very knowledgeable about the area. Picked the location to visit relatives for the occasion of a first birthday celebration. We would return here anytime....just wish we had more time to stay. Jim invited us to come back in the warm weather and use the pool!

New England charm and hospitality at its best!

So glad I found Green Acres with Innkeepers Jim and Cathy. I could not have been happier with the room (beautifully decorated), the awesome personalized breakfast and the friendly hosts. The 1700s home is nicely restored and updated to give the feel of history with modern conveniences. I will definitely be back!

As beautiful as the property is from the outside it is even better inside. Jim and Cathy are extraordinary hosts. No detail is left undone. Breakfast was wonderful. I highly recommend this B&B and will be sure to book it again when I return to Connecticut.

Just left after our third stay! We love it and cannot say enough about the warm, generous innkeepers Cathy and Jim. From the made to order gourmet breakfasts to baked goods in your room, to the lovely rooms and pool this is a great place to stay all year. Don't miss the Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe homes. Ask Jim for dinner suggestions, he comes up with excellent choices!
