In Connecticut’s quiet northeast corner, reserve a spot at one of several historic inns in Woodstock. Options include the B&B at Taylor’s Corner (a 1795 Colonial farmhouse with nine fireplaces) or the Inn at Woodstock Hill (a restored country estate with an onsite restaurant). While you’re in town, get out and explore the area. Woodstock, Pomfret and other towns in the region all offer wonderful country views and the feel of old New England. Ask your innkeeper for ideas.
The country inn has been part of Connecticut’s rustic landscape since time immemorial - whether for putting up stagecoach passengers or romantic modern couples looking for an overnight or two away from the workaday world. Very good inns are thriving in many parts of the state - here’s a sampling from eastern Connecticut.
The next day plan to stay at another area inn. Daniel Rust House (a 1731 center-chimney colonial featuring four guestrooms and full breakfast) in Coventry or the Altnaveigh Inn & Restaurant (a restored 1734 home with two guestrooms and a restaurant serving lunch and dinner) in Storrs are two popular choices.
