Guest Photograph: Silas Robbins House



Blogger friend Sue from Idyll Haven managed to get out of her house on Sunday for a short drive around Wethersfield.  Roads have been plowed, but the snow banks are narrowing the road beds and making driving treacherous.

Sue took a photo of the Silas Robbins House, a marvelous bed and breakfast that I featured in August 2012, including the photo below.  Check out how high on the fence the snow sits, and notice that they have a LOT more snow to remove before the driveway, sidewalk and front walkway are open. Thanks again, Sue.  (Sue's most recent post tells an amusing story of dealing with the storm and has lots of photos.)

I will show some interior photos of Silas Robbins House in a while.

Wow! Beautiful with or without snow...like a film set. I love that you share a fellow blogger's photos here. Terrific.

Classy place.

A gorgeous house that has literally risen from the ashes after being almost completely destroyed by fire in 1996. I've linked a picture from that fire here:

I much prefer the summer view and am more than ready to see it again.

The Silas Robbins house has endured plenty of snowstorms throughout the years. At least this is one blizzared you don't have to shovel your way through.

You have the technique for posting from New England in the winter worked out well. Do it from Florida using a friend's photos when there is a big snowfall.

Despite the inconveniences, the snow certainly lends a beauty to that house and its surroundings!

I must say it makes a beautiful view with all that white trim on this grand old house. But, I consider myself lucky that I can enjoy the photos without having to deal with the work and cold.

What a beautiful place, regardless of the season! I do remember being impressed with its beauty in your earlier photos! That is a LOT of snow, however!! I think I would prefer to visit in the summer! Have a great week and enjoy your Florida sunshine!!

I am so glad your blogger friend Sue was willing to let you share this beautiful photo. I agree with others it is an amazing looking home in any season. I look forward to seeing inside this fantastic home.

Beautiful house, with snow even better.

RedPat said...

Brilliant! But I am still sore from shoveling so will vote for the fair weather shot.

Karen said...

It looks lovely in the winter!

It is beautiful in its own right, in every season!

VP said...

We can easily see that the beauty of this building is not due to the season...

Dianne said...

What a delight Jack to see the snow dropping off the eaves .... Beautiful! I'll look forward to seeing the interior.

Lowell said...

Either way it is a gorgeous structure...

EG CameraGirl said...

It sure does look different in winter!

The snow adds an additional decorative touch to this already decorative Victorian house.

CaT said...

what a fancy house!
so nice, the snow!! :D

Kay said...

A beautiful place in any season. Were I to be snowed in anywhere I think this spot would top the list. A window seat with a nice pot of tea would suit.

Malyss said...

What a fabulous house, no matter the weather!! I like your serie about snow pics by guests, that's funny and interesting!

Chrissy Brand said...

Remarkable in the snow and that daylight.

Nathalie Beaumes said...

A lovely mansion in any weather but the snowed-in version blew me away!

JM said...

Gorgeous house... in every season! :-)
