Stayed in "The Trade Room" on 9/9/17. Room was very comfortable. The morning breakfast was outstanding. Will definitely stay again.

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!

We just finished our third stay and love it. Jim and Cathy are warm, generous innkeepers who make you feel at home but better because they serve an amazing made to order breakfast. You have to try Jim's blueberry scones! We love the Trade room but they are all lovely. The pool is perfect. Centrally located near the Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe homes. For the money you couldn't find a better deal!

My daughter and I were in Simsbury for a school bisit. We loved our stay at Green Acres! The rooms were cozy and beautifully appointed and the food was fantastic!

This was one of the best bed and breakfasts we have stayed at. Friendly inn keepers and lots of small touches to make it homey. We loved it here and will be back for another stay !

We've stayed here four times already. To us, Jim and Cathy are like family. We love the rooms and all the amenities that you get with the rooms. Such as Terricloth robe and slippers, a candy dish filled with an assortment of different candies, Sherry in a decanter and a mini refrigerator fully stocked with juice, water, soda and snacks such as chips and crackers. Plus a coffee maker with an assortment of k-cup coffies and tea. And of course your very own bathroom with shower. During the summer months they have an in ground pool with pool house (which has a fully functional kitchen) to enjoy. Jim and Cathy are dog lovers as we are too. They have dogs that are very friendly and love attention and their chickens are a hoot as well. We continue to vacation here because of all you get for the price you pay. Green Acres is truly the place to be!!!

Wonderful hosts, fantastic breakfasts and bountiful amenities! Cathy and Jim have mixed just the right amount of modern comforts into their very historic home. Would definitely put Green Acres on a "repeat" list.
The upstairs Linen room combined with the adjacent Sitting room. Sitting room and Linen room share full bath
First floor room with private bath and fireplace.
Upstairs room with private bath.
The Twin Room has two twin beds and a private bath with a jetted tub and shower combination. This the the perfect room for two people travelling together that don't want to share a bed.
