I love architecture, gardening, interior design, my family and my dog.
Jen and Bob were really nice hosts. We had some unusual needs that they accommodated happily without ever giving the slightest hint of being put-out. The house and gardens around it are more beautiful than the pictures can show! They have restored this large Victorian carriage house to an inspiring condition and continue working on it which I'm sure will make it even better. Keep in mind It's not terribly close to downtown New Haven.
One of the highlights was the fresh rhododendrons in vases in our bedroom and other rooms in the house (we were there in May). Lots of fresh fruit for breakfast to go with the other choices. The house was very clean and neat. The bed had a high quality mattress. We had our own private bathroom. We look forward to staying there again.
Our (one night) stay with Jennifer and Bob was wonderful. They are both architects and their home is gorgeous. They are warm and friendly and relaxed. Our room and bath were comfortable, we had a lovely breakfast in the sunny open kitchen-dining area and then were on our way to our daughter's graduation from Yale. Because parking would be next to impossible, Jennifer offered to drive us. She is generous and very pleasant. Their dog and two cats were so cute I am almost tempted to get a pet! I highly recommend their hospitality.
We were return visitors. This is a great place to stay! In our previous stay we mentioned a weak wi-fi signal upstairs in the bedroom, and just want to say that everything is working fine now, and the owners are wonderful hosts.
Great family. Jennifer & her husband were very nice and friendly.
They were accommodating to my hectic schedule
Perfect ending to our New England trip! We were greeted by an impressive and beautifully furnished Victorian mansion, clean room, friendly dog and lovely family. The house is perfectly located in the outskirts of New Haven, the breakfast was delicious! Thank you Jennifer and Bob, we can highly recommend a visit!
Our stay was very pleasing. A beautifully restored home in a gorgeous setting with congenial hosts. Our room and bath was spacious and restful. The wifi signal was weak in our room, probably not surprising given the mansion dimensions. But we were invited to use a first-floor sitting room which had plenty of signal along with beautiful views of the grounds.
Had a very comfortable stay. Jennifer and Bob were so welcoming and made us feel right at home. Breakfast was really good. Mansion was unique and architectually beaufiul as advertised. Had a wonderful weekend in the area and didnt want to leave. Thank you so much.
Wow, this house is amazing. We felt as if we booked a hotel all for ourself =)
Jennifer and her husband made our stay in their home very warm and welcome. We would definitely stay here again.
Perfect stay. Jennifer and her husband were super nice, easy going, and their place is lovely. Did not feel like we were intruding at all, and good organic breakfast!
If you want to feel at home while you are away, this is the place to go. The house is awesome, the room wonderful and cozy. Jennifer and Bob are amazing hosts, always considerate and helpful. It was just wonderful to chat with them over breakfast (which is great as well) and get some good tips on where to go.
