We are in our early 30s and enjoy traveling among many other things. We love Hartford and are happy to help you find your way!
Jane & Earl are great hosts. The place was spotless and everything went over smoothly. I would definitely stay there again.
Jane and Earl (and their dog) were extremely friendly but also unobtrusive--the ideal combination. Their home, while unassuming on the outside, is charming and well-decorated and the guest room is large with a private bath. The location is perfect for downtown Hartford, just 10 minutes by foot from the Convention Center.
Jane and her apartment were absolutely amazing. It was located really close to the city and was a great base for us to explore the city. Jane herself was incredibly helpful and was able to accomodate us at very short notice. The house itself is amazing and Jane certainly allowed us to make it our own for which we were very appreciative. Would recommend to anyone looking for a place in Hartford to stay.
Terrific second stay... beautiful home!
My one night stay in this lovely home in a safe and extremely convenient location (near transportation and "must see" sites) exceeded my expectations and my expectations were high!
It was obvious Jane and Earl put much thought into how to make guests comfortable in their home. Here are just a few details:
It was impossible not to notice that they made very efficient use of the alcove space (my room). This alcove is off the living room and if one wants more privacy, curtains separating the alcove from the living room can be pulled together. After I pulled the curtains closed, it became an even cozier space/room and I realized it contained more than I needed (with a bathroom for my use, alone, nearby). For example, a leather arm chair is at the foot of the bed in front of a window that provides lots of light, a view of the front garden and, when desired, fresh air. There is a reading lamp, a candle and holder, a wall clock, and furniture for guests' travel stuff. There is also art work on the wall that any person should appreciate. In sum, a great room for travelers -- it was easy for me to relax, read, and sleep in this home.
In addition, Jane provided maps and other useful information to help me enjoy my stay in Hartford, a city worth visiting. By the way, it is an easy walk from Amtrak and other transportation through Bushnell Park to their home which made the location especially convenient for me.
If anyone is concerned about the presence of a dog, don't be. She and the cat were endearing. Obviously, my experience here was a five star one. I highly recommend a stay here. Thanks to Jane and Earl.Macy-Painter.
Jane and Earl's place was beautiful and we had a very enjoyable stay. I would definately stay there again! Thank you so much Jane and Earl for your hospitality and letting us enjoy your beautiful condo!
Jane and Earl are incredibly gracious hosts. The apartment is spacious, welcoming, and has a lot of character. The location to downtown Hartford could not be better with free parking on a side street. I am so glad to have met and be staying with Jane and Earl during my visits to Hartford.
Jane and Earl were great. Great! I felt right at home. I stayed on the futon right off the alcove. It is semi-private, but I still felt I had my own space. They both left before I woke up and I never was disturbed. Almost wish I wasn't moving into my apartment so I could continue bunking with them. Though they may cringe knowing I'm just a few blocks away.
I found street parking right outside their place on the side street and left it there Monday night through Friday morning without ever having to move.
Great time, most comfortable bed in the world!!
Jane and Earl are awesome! Thank you for letting crash at your cool pad.
Jane and Earl were a joy to host! They are fun and have a zest for life. They were considerate and left the apartment very clean. Thank you!
Stayed an additional night. The whole expereince with Jane and Earl was grand.
Lovely family. Clean and neat and friendly. Come back any time.
Earl and Jane were ideal guests: they had explored the area via internet before arrival, came with a positive attitude to see and taste everything, and as a result, had a wonderful visit. We got along very well with flexibility being an important ingredient. Rate them A+
Very nice family.
Jane and Earl are the nicest, smartest and sweetest couple! We thoroughly enjoyed hosting them. They are very kind and considerate and easy to have around. We would welcome them back anytime. They made a great weekend even better!
I so enjoyed having Jane and Earl here. They are a fun and interesting couple and I hope they enjoyed their west coast trip and their visit to Portland.
Jane and Earl were great guests, clean, kind and full of energy. I wish they would have stayed longer so we could chat more. I look forward to seeing you guys again next time. Enjoy your travels in the Pacific Northwest!
Jane and Earl were excellent guests! They are very friendly and are welcome to stay whenever they visit LA!!!
Jane and Earl are two of the greatest people I know! They are a wonderful couple, so genuine, kind, and super funny! Their apartment is wonderful, and in the perfect location for walking downtown. They're also very knowledgeable about the downtown Hartford area, its attractions and are more than willing to help out.
