By 7 AM, the aroma of freshly brewed coffee is wafting from the kitchen. Every day we grind beans supplied by a local roaster, Ashlawn Farm, to make that perfect cup of coffee in our Dutch coffeemaker.
Be our Guest!
In warm weather, enjoy our gated back yard. Read the New York Times or local paper on our private brick patio, listening to the fountain. See our winged friends, doves, cardinals and woodpeckers congregate around the bird feeder communing with squirrels, rabbits and groundhogs. Hummingbirds hover to complete the tableaux. Lounge on the couches or hammock while your friends or family play bocce.
Our Wallingford bed & breakfast is located in a beautifully renovated 1910 house on a quiet residential street in downtown Wallingford's historical residential area, providing traditional Bed and Breakfast service to our B&B and Airbnb guests.
We are across the street from the Choate Rosemary Hall chapel and its bell tower - and a short distance to local restaurants, vineyards and Oakdale Theater. Wesleyan, Yale and Quinnipiac Universities are a comfortable drive. Let us help you plan sightseeing trips to the Connecticut River Valley and the shoreline.
WE TAKE OUR FOOD SERIOUSLY...
If you start the day early and can’t live without that first cup of coffee or tea, you have the fixings available right outside your bedroom. The hall servery is always stocked with the necessary accoutrements, including Keurig pods, sweeteners and fresh organic half and half.
Bell Tower B&B
The breakfast menu is created to compliment the seasonal produce available in New England. Dishes include fresh fruit or a fruit compote, homemade organic yogurt, steel cut oatmeal, free range egg entrees, pancakes, waffles with real maple syrup and a daily variety of homemade bread, muffins, scones and coffee cakes.
In cold weather,
retreat to our inviting sunny, south-facing family room. Warm yourself by the fire as you catch up on email, savor that book you have been wanting to read or watch a movie. Socialize with friends and family over a cup of tea or hot chocolate. The glass window wall provides up-to-the minute weather reports and glimpses of winter birds at the feeder.
