The Daniel Rust House
Ranked #1 of 4 Coventry B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 October 2010

The Daniel Rust house is a jewel in Coventry. The beautifully renovated house is run by two extraordinary women who will make your stay a dream. The rooms are wonderful but make sure to get up to have some of their delicious breakfast. highly recommended!

We could not have asked for a more wonderful stay. The house and grounds are beautiful, as was our room (the Mary Rose room); the innkeepers are delightful; and food (24-hour treats and breakfast) is delicious. In the morning, before others were up, I took a walk down the lovely country lane to the lake, meeting no one but a friendly black lab and his equally friendly owner. We hated to leave.

We stayed at the Daniel Rust House B&B on June 14th. The experience was outstanding in every way. The word that keeps coming to mind is “impeccable”. Impeccable hospitality, décor, cleanliness, attention-to-detail, appeal. The house has been beautifully restored so that you can imagine being there in the 1700s but with the comforts of today. Co-owner and innkeeper, Germaine, was delightful, friendly, and offered exceptional hospitality. Every room of the house was photographically beautiful as well as comfortable for lounging and chatting or reading a book. We luxuriated in the lovely and spacious Anna White Room, complete with working fireplace, four-post bed with crocheted canopy and two-person whirlpool tub. The other bedrooms & guest house were also beautiful. Breakfast was a delicious feast: a variety of coffees and teas individually brewed, juices, fresh-baked popovers, succulent fruit with granola and yogurt, seasoned scrambled eggs & ham, and fluffy blueberry pancakes. Germaine encouraged us to take our time, relax and linger. The beautifully-manicured property surrounding the house was a pleasure as well. A tree-lined gravel road behind the house invited a stroll. It was an oasis in the countryside. Just a note: The front of house is near the well-traveled local road. While we weren’t bothered by the passing cars, a light-sleeper might be. Just bring earplugs for sleeping. Do NOT miss this B&B! This is one of the best we’ve stayed at over the past 25 years.

The Daniel Rust House is located in Coventry CT, which makes it the perfect locale when we visit our daughter at UCONN. We have stayed here twice (10/2008 and 04/2009) and highly recommend it. The house has a rich history dating back to 1731. The Innkeepers - Germaine and Cathy are thoughtful, caring and attentive to the needs of their guests. We stayed in both the Anna White Room and the Mary Rose Room. Go for the Anna White Room and enjoy the beautiful private bath and two person whirlpool tub. The B & B has a rustic charm that feels very comfortable - why stay at a hotel? Breakfasts are excellent - forget about ever needing to eat lunch later. Cathy and Germaine are very knowledgeable about the area and will assist you in finding places to go visit or dine for dinner. Be sure to check out the specials and events listed on their website. The extra bonus is that this B & B is pet friendly. We are definitely going back again.

Staying somewhere that feels more like home, rather than a cold and corporate environment, is one of the joys of staying at B&Bs. You absolutely feel right at home the minute you step into the Daniel Rust House and meet hosts Cathy and Germaine.
I can't say enough about how Germaine and Cathy went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed...and then some...during our stay.
Coventry's rich history and the Daniel Rust House's long history were the initial factors that drew us to stay here. Visiting with our hosts again would be more than ample reason to return for another stay.
The inn itself is lovingly maintained and decorated in antiques. The grounds offer plenty of room for relaxing on the patio, going for a walk along the lane leading from the inn's backyard or watching for the fox or deer that regularly visit the grounds.
Breakfasts were particularly notable. Make sure you're hungry in the morning, and don't plan on having to eat again until dinner (if even then).
