My husband and I recently spent 2 nights at the Starbuck Inn in Kent CT and enjoyed every moment. Our room was very clean and comfortable and the gardens are really lovely. Peter Starbuck, the proprietor, was friendly and helpful, the perfect innkeeper, and the breakfasts he prepared and served were superb. We will definitely stay there again on our next visit.
My wife and I spent a weekend at the Starbuck Inn in July as we were attending a wedding in nearby New Milford. You could not find a more gracious host in Mr Starbucks - giving us an excellent recommendation for a day hike through Macedonia Park to a glacial pond, preparing breakfasts with fresh fruit and great coffee, but best of all finding an emergency safety pin to fix a wardrobe malfunction in the eleventh hour.
This is a lovely inn located right in the heart of Kent. You can walk to all the main stores and restaurants. The property is beautiful and relaxing. Plus, how could you not love the high tea provided daily at 4pm. It provides a chance to mingle with other guests in the house, enjoy the common living room space or the spacious backyard. Would definitely recommend to other visitors of Kent.
Due to the reason for the stay,, we only spent one night. This is our only regret. We definitely plan to return when we can stay longer and explore the area more. The Inn is lovely, Peter and his staff were friendly, caring and gracious, as was Ruby (the rescue chocolate Lab). The gardens were coming into bloom, the yard is comfortable and relaxing and the interior of the Inn is tastefully maintained. Breakfast was perfect, healthy and delicious. Thanks so much.

The Inn is on the small side and the common areas are largely limited to a very comfortable living room with fire place where high tea is served, and a cute dining room. The quality of the modern-but-warm decor and overall cleanliness (not to mention one of the most comfortable beds I've had the pleasure of sleeping in) made our stay at Starbuck very enjoyable. Also it is located right in the middle of Kent, a wonderful little CT town...
Peter Starbuck is the perfect host, he IS Starbuck Inn. Our room was spacious and the bed extremely comfortable. The bathroom facilities were cramped with nowhere to put toiletries and clothes. Peter is very generous in providing afternoon snacks and drinks and a hot breakfast. The Inn is lovely and the breakfast room overlooks green lawns with colourful birds and chipmunks creating a constant source of amusement.
Starbucks Inn An elegant Inn in a very good position in Kent, which is a charming small, New England town. The Inn is spacious and comfortable and has a really beautiful outlook at the back where the breakfast room is located. There are several good restaurants within walking distance. Note though that in October they do not all open every day. Peter, the host, is an interesting guy and looked after us very well. Breakfasts were excellent. Tea is provided in the afternoon but it would be nice to be able to make a hot drink at other times. Just providing a vacuum flask of hot water and tea bags/coffee would be all it takes. .........on the other hand Peter does provide sherry for his guests in the lounge so things weren’t so bad! Overall we very much enjoyed our stay here. Bryan and Ann D UK
The Starbuck Inn was beautiful and comfortable. We loved that it was right in town and we could walk to all the shops and restaurants. Peter was an extremely gracious host, serving us afternoon tea and a delicious breakfast of local, farm-fresh foods. A delightful experience!
Location, Location, Location. Kent is the perfect place for a scenic weekend getaway (No. 1 for foliage BTW) The Starbuck Inn is clean, spacious and meticulously manicured grounds provide the ideal starting point for local adventures, Peter Starbucks charming, slightly off centered hosting takes center stage.
The Starbuck Inn is top of class! The Inn is everything we wanted, and more. Pure comfort and delight. Peter Starbuck's breakfasts are legendary, and so is the extremely attentive service. When you want a get-away that exceeds all expectations, book here!
