We are just off of 84.  Boston is 1 hour's drive and NYC is only 2.5 hours so we are a perfect stop to get away from the hustle and bustle of it all!Blueberry picking at Winterbrook Farm(15 minute drive)

Enjoy a picturesque 15 minute drive to the Brimfield Antique Show! We are just 5 minutes to Staffordville Lake and 5 minutes to downtown Stafford Springs. Many acres of Wildlife Refuge and Parks just a stone's throw away from the Inn.

The space

Our home is on the original town green and still boasts many of the original details from 1778. Our home has wide plank floors, hand carved chair rails, two of the bedrooms boast barreled ceilings and one a mullion window! Our prices are per room rates.

During the Brimfield show we provide a large continental buffet with "to go" bags and coffee cups for those that aspire to the sunrise opening at the show. If you are interested in a seated breakfast during the show we are happy to provide a hot breakfast as well upon request.

During the winter months we used two wood burning stoves that provide a warm, welcoming environment. While preserving the details from the 1700's we also provide modern amenities like free cable and WiFi. Our family loves to host guests and have had guests from as far as New Zealand, Dubai, Paris and Norway to name a few.

We also have hosted many local folks who love to get away from the quad cities that surround us. Hartford, CT , Boston, MA, Springfield, MA and NYC, NY are within 40 minutes to 3 hours from our home.

We are a family run New England get away rich in history and landscape in every season. Since we raise our three children in our historic home we also accept guest with children of all ages which is very rare in the B&B world. We hope you or perhaps you and your family will visit and become as enchanted by our quaint little town as we have grown!

Some of the decor in our home is for sale. I love to have a piece from our local antique shop rotating at the Inn to change up our decor. We also usually have a few photos for sale and maple syrup, of course! We have 5 sugar houses in town and love using and supplying their products!

We have two rooms routinely available and two others if we have a large party staying for a minimum of two nights or longer.

We also host small events and gatherings.

Hope to meet you soon!

Interaction with guests

We interact as much or as little as our guests want. On weekends my children are often the servers unless a guest would rather not interact with them. I discuss this upon making reservations and have found most travelers love interacting with our family run business. On occasion the kids and I are with my brother in Boston or New Hampshire and my husband will be your host. He is a Uconn professor and was "my waiter" when we met so I know the service is top notch whether I am here or not! If you are coming with children I often open our playroom to them based on their age. We accept and welcome all children!

Other things to note

The Brimfield Show is only 15 minutes drive and many of our guests find staying here helps them to decompress from the frenetic pace at the market. We have stored and shipped things in the past for reasonable fees based on the size and duration of storage.

We stayed in the Heritage Room. It was charming, lots of character, extremely clean. A new bathroom with a great shower. Danele went out of her way to be welcoming and helpful, even offering boots and umbrellas for the rainy days. She was flexible with arrival times and breakfast. She was a wealth of information about the community, local shops, and the Brimfield Market. A lovely homey historical house. Three sweet children that were fun to be around. Overall one of the best BnB's we've stayed at and would definitely go back.

A lovely place to relax. The host Family were quite enjoyable and sensitive to our needs. The house is beautiful and the neighborhood quiet. We enjoyed a walk along a nice nearby dirt road. I would definitely stay here again.

Response from Danele:
We loved hosting Graham and his family! They were very interesting as many of our AirBnB guests tend to be with new business plans and a new baby on the way this family was very friendly, polite and easy to host! Would love to see them again anytime!!

Our families visit to this historic home B & B was as great as we expected. Danele was the perfect host for our large group (grandma, grandpa, sister in law, kids, nephew and his wife – the dog (just kidding) that had traveled to the area for our daughter’s graduation from college. What could have been an awful event giving the large family group instead turned out to be one of the most wonderful traveling experiences we have ever had. Being from California anything older than 50 years is historic, it was another experience to stay in a 230 year plus historic antique filled home that felt more like a close relatives home than a museum. We only wish we could have stayed longer to explore the area and visit more with Danele and her lovely family. Breakfast with local cheeses and homemade pancakes with real maple syrup were reason alone to stay there. Danele we thank you for the opportunity to stay in your place.

Staying at Danele's inn was fantastic! Her house is wonderfully decorated and comfortable, and the breakfast she provides is a great deal. She was more then accommodating with my weird food allergies, and even sent me and my friends off with snacks to keep us going during our Brimfield shopping trip. The inn is located within easy driving distance from Brimfield (15-20 mins), but a lovely retreat from the madness of the show. Her family is very warm and inviting, and we enjoyed relaxing in her house over a bottle of wine each night after heavy shopping. She even directed us to some off the beaten path shops nearby with even better deals! I would highly recommend staying here, and hope to be able to stay again someday!

My family and I moved from urban Chicago to rural Connecticut in the summer of 2011 so that my husband could continue his career as an academic at the University of Connecticut. My main concern in making such a huge life change was how to feel connected to the rest of the world …
