A Journey Through Time

5 on August 31, 2017

If you're looking for a place to stay while traveling in time, The Wallingford Victorian Inn is what you're looking for, and if you enjoy Victorian style, you'll find that here all right. What a place! This house is so breathtaking that my husband and I didn't feel much like going anywhere else when there's so much to see inside this mini palace. Every single room is a royal suite and every guest is a VIP. So much glamor around that I felt underdressed at all times. So much attention to detail and so many beautiful things from the time period that left me breathless the moment I opened the front door and walked in the first time. The place is a jewel and I hope I'll have the chance to visit it again in winter and spend at least one week of magic in any of its enchanting suites during the cold and snowy days. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else! Kennie, the innkeeper, took care of us ensuring we were comfortable and had everything we needed at all times giving is a royal treatment. The proprietors, Sharlene and Karl, were extremely gracious and kind, and they are the creators and master minds of this splendorous refuge. No other place around matches The Wallingford Victorian Inn. Take my word for it! Ines & Daniel


Quick Getaway

Fantastic one night stay after spending the afternoon in one of the local vineyards, and enjoying a great meal at a restaurant within walking distance. Kenni met us on time and explained all that we needed to know during check-in. The room was super comfortable, and the breakfast the next morning was award winning. Highly recommend!!


Awesome Bed & Breakfast

Beautiful Bed & Breakfast. Breakfast was delicious. Kenni our host was very pleasant, and was knowledgeable about The Wallingford Victorian Inn, and the town of Wallingford.

Our Little Get-A-Way

We live in the area so our stay was only overnight. The inn is one of the most beautiful ones we've ever stayed at. The breakfast was delicious! The innkeeper was both gracious and friendly.


A Beautiful Place to Stay In Connecticut!

5 on May 08, 2017

My husband and I just stayed at this amazing B & B for the 3rd time when visiting relatives in Connecticut. We have been traveling to CT for many years and finally found a lovely Inn that we can now call "home" several times a year. This B & B is immaculate and beautiful with lovely furnishings and all the suits we have viewed here are beautiful ... each one is unique with its own charm. We chose to stay in a suite with a large tub ... but the other suites are also tastefully decorated and simply beautiful! The scrumptious breakfasts are freshly prepared each morning ... truly special! Looking forward to returning to The Wallingford Victorian Inn in the near future.


Charming Experience

4.8 on April 25, 2017

Extremely impressed with this inn. Can't say enough about it. The innkeeper Kenni is delightful, sweet and very accommodating. Has a sense of humor too. :) They had a wine hour on Saturday night and the owners came by and stopped to chat and were very pleasant as well. Very impressed to find out that they renovated the inn themselves and the wife had picked out every single charming antique piece in the place. The breakfast in their beautiful dining room was delicious and as charming as the hosts! FYI, the Margaret T suite is by far the biggest room with the large living room space adjoined to it. The Georgiana was very pretty as well with a small sitting area in the corner. The Charles is a bit smaller than Georgiana (and has the prettiest wallpaper!) and has a wonderful porch outside attached to it. Kenni went above and beyond to make an effort to make our stay special and the amenities were overly plentiful. We were truly pampered. Definitely will stay there again. I would always chose this charming inn over any of the regular hotels nearby. Worth the money! Thank you all!


Very well-kept Inn, with excellent staff

4.4 on April 05, 2017

Beautiful inn, with rich history and fabulous attention to detail. Keni (the manager) is particularly amazing and attentive, communicating in advance and going the extra mile to ensure your stay is as enjoyable and relaxing as possible. I would highly recommend!


Perfect Birthday getaway weekend.

Every year for my birthday my husband and I go to a bed and breakfast for a getaway. This was a perfect choice. Every aspect of our stay was wonderful. The breakfasts were beautifully presented and delicious. The accommodations were delightful with attention to every detail. Kenni, our innkeeper was lovely and amazingly helpful. This is a charming Inn which I highly recommend!!!!!.
