Top German Restaurant with Great Room Accommodations

4.8 on June 30, 2012

We were planning on a quick dinner of interstate 1-84 and back to the highway. Missy, our server was quite accommodating by giving us a tour after dinner. We decided to stay and sink into bed! As promised, the rooms we eclectically pleasing, different from a hotel. Our breakfast was quite perfect, as the Chef presented us with the best Eggs Benedict I've ever had. We'll be back the next time we travel to Maine.

Great place to Unwind

If you're looking for a place to get away from the city for a few days, The Vienna is the place. Lisa and Jonathan make you feel like part of their family. The room are large and very comfortable, and the food is incredible. Relax in the parlor with a drink in the late afternoon, have your appetizers served by the fire, then go upstairs to a romantic nook for a wonderful dinner. In the morning, the breakfast Jonathan will make for you will make you want to stay for another day alone. If you need a few days away, go to the Vienna you won't be disappointed.

A place to revisit

A truly delightful night and dinner. The inkeepers Lisa and John as well as their well trained and qualified staff made this a place we would visit again and again. The ethnic theme of the inn made it seem like a trip to Austria or Germany without the hassle of an international trip. The food was outstanding as was the service. We ate outside on the patio with a warm fireplace to take the chill from the evening air. The next morning Lisa and John and their dog Skeeter took us for a walk around a damn at a nearby park. It made the breakfast meal of French Toast and omelets an almost guiltless pleasure. If you are near this part of CT you must try to get a stay here. Chuck and Regina

Worth the trip

4.4 on October 29, 2008

My husband and I had a great time. Lisa and Jon were very friendly and the food was outstanding. The room we had called the blumezimmer was very nice, with one exception. I understand that it is and old house, but the bathroom could use a little work. The sink and the tub did have some rust. The friendly service and the awesome breakfast more than made up for it. It was worth the trip and I would definately go back.

Wonderful birthday celebration
