Silas W. Robbins House

This impeccably painted and maintained inn is on the Green in Wethersfield.  The Trip Advisor comments about the inn are full of superlatives.  28 of 29 ratings are "excellent."  The other is "very good."  The complaint from the one dissenter?  They showed up for breakfast at 10 a.m. and it was over.

A link to the inn's website is here.

Sue left an interesting comment yesterday about the inn and its renovation.

Love the perspective of your first shot. Such a beautiful place!

Stayed at the Berry Manor Inn in Rockland last spring. What a place! Homemade pies available 24 hrs a day.

OMG, this place is gorgeous. I would love staying here. I can't get over how beautifully maintained the building is. I love all that gorgeous trim and the way it's painted.

Luis Gomez said...

Gorgeous!

When I make it to Hartford Jack, I'm definitely booking in here for a couple of nights it looks rather splendid indeed! I like the detail of the 'statue' from the previous post!!

Jack, this is so gorgeous - good design is wonderful to see no matter what the era!

Sylvia K said...

Such a gorgeous place and yes, like the others, I would love to stay there! Sues comment is interesting and I know there are people who wouldn't want a "business" as a neighbor, but not many of those "businesses" look like this and I'm sure their "customers" don't behave like the usual ones! I'm just amazed at the incredible renovation! Great captures, Jack, as always!

Hard to dissent about this!

It's absolutely gorgeous! I'd love to stay there. :)

Wow ! what a charming and attractive place! It does not seem real!

Randy said...

Reminds me of those old doll houses that I would see kids playing with.

I guess this is what someone might call "High Victorian."

Michelle said...

Really beautiful. Makes me want to go inside.

It hardly looks real, like something from a movie. It must be lovely to stay there.

Leslie D. said...

Yes ditto. Magnificent relic from another era. it also looks a little like the Addams Family House

I'm glad they figured out a way to make it pay for itself. I can't imagine the upkeep.

Bob Crowe said...

That's a remarkable piece of Victorian gingerbread. It could have contained lives of great elegance or, perhaps, ghosts.

Lorelle said...

Such a beautiful home! Having stayed at a few b&b's this year, I'd have to also complain that breakfast is often served too early. I like to sleep in on vacation.

Silas W. Robbins didn't make his money by staying in bed till 10 o'clock! What a superb piece of architecture.

Stefan Jansson said...

What a fantastic looking place.

JM said...

Absolutely gorgeous building! Love the composition on top.

Lois said...

Wow, this place is absolutely wonderful! Looks like something out of a fairy tale.

Sue said...

A most photogenic house indeed!

Karl Demetz said...

Gorgeous building indeed!!

Kate said...

Terrific building. The mansard roof, the porch and the decorative trim around the windows are really quite exquisite. The guest housen (or the garage?) on the right is beautifully coordinated.

Gunn said...

I have never seen anything like it.
Thanks for the link too.
The rooms and the breakfast looks wonderful.

Kay said...

What a lovely B & B! Beautifully done and I imagine it's wonderful inside, too.

It's nice to sleep in on a vacation, but if that's the priority maybe a B & B isn't a perfect choice. Breakfast is worth rising for at every one I've visited.
