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 while living in a small provincial New England albeit it charming town. Well, it took some adjusting but we have settled into our New England Bed and Breakfast life quite well. Our guests have helped our family continue to feel a part of the global world in a similar way we had become accustom in our urban Chicago setting and our neighbors have welcomed us with open arms. We welcome children of all ages as we ourselves have three. Our home is unique in that is on the original town green and still boast many or the original details of the late 1770's such as wide plank floors, hand forged nails and barreled ceilings in two of our guest rooms.
We have had many guests over this past (almost year) many of whom have become good friends so we have adopted the previous Innkeeper's mantra, "You arrive as guests but leave as friends!" We hope to meet you soon.
