PERFECT!!!

My husband and I adored EVERYTHING about the Bristol House Bed and Breakfast. The Innkeeper, Kathleen, was friendly, warm and accommodating. The house was EXTREMELY clean, cozy and well decorated. The breakfast was AMAZING! Kathleen had fresh baked chocolate chip cookies upon our arrival and I am still craving them. The town of Bristol is a charming little town with great restaurants and cute boutiques. We had a BedandBreakfast.com Gift Card that we had to use and picked Bristol House on a whim. We were SO PLEASANTLY SURPRISED!!! We will definitely return!


Great place to stay

Kathleen was a great hostess. Breakfast each morning was better than the day before.


Exceptional experience

Staying at The Bristol House for 4 nights during the weekend of our daughter's wedding was the icing on the cake. Kathleen is such a warm and inviting person, whose immaculate and comfortable house was a surprise addition toward making our weekend exceptional. We entertained guests there as she allowed us to host a Sunday brunch, using her gorgeous backyard grounds and patio. Dressing during the wedding day and providing a sunroom for hair, makeup and lunch for the bridal party was another additional perk she was able to provide for us. Her expertise in the kitchen was on display at breakfast, during snack time and brunch. Thank you Kathleen for doing what you do in such a professional yet friendly manner! Your bed & breakfast is not to be missed when visiting Bristol or any close by town.

Relaxing Stay

We spent two nights at Bristol House. The breakfast was out of this world! There were also freshly baked cookies, coffee, tea, and soda available at any time of day (or night). The rooms were comfortable and very clean. There was a bike path to town only a couple blocks away.

Kathleen is friendly and made my son feel at home. I would enjoy returning to her home. She was patient with my 3-year-old. Her breakfasts are outstanding.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property! We miss him already and hope that he is taking good care of Steve the Lobster! Take care!

“Warm and Welcoming Inn and Innkeeper!”

5 on February 10, 2017

My husband and I visited Bristol recently to explore the quaint town and area as a weekend get away. Kathleen was very welcoming and has an exceptionally decorated and well appointed inn to share with travelers. She has everything you could think of to make you welcome including homemade cookies, snacks, coffee, drinks and chocolates at bedtime. The room was very nice with one of the most comfortable beds we have slept in with high quality sheets and a warm comforter. Kathleen provided recommendations on where to eat and gave us some local history. In the morning we were treated to buttermilk pancakes and bacon that had been cooked in maple syrup...fresh fruit and coffee. We would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the area!

Innkeeper Response
We so enjoyed having you both as our guests and we hope to see you again soon!

The room was lovely. The best thing was our hostess who was charming and helpful.


True meaning of hospitality

5 on December 02, 2015

Staying at the Bristol House Bed& Breakfast was the best part of our 2 month vacation in the US, and it was all thanks to Kathleen. She is the kindest , most helpful, and sweetest host we have ever met. Her scrumptious breakfasts are hard to describe in words, her yummilicious cookies are simply the best, and the rooms are just so perfectly decorated, and clean with attention to the smallest detail . Being our first time to the US, Kathleen personally assisted me in finding my way around, and making bookings etc despite being super busy with an Inn full of Guests. Staying there is exactly like being at home and more, everyone must experience staying there because this is what true hospitality is all about. Thank you Kathleen for everything. Your Greek family
