“Fun visit!”
Reviewed 11 October 2011

We enjoyed our stay in October at the Truman Gillet house. On a fairly quiet road, pleasant accomodations, room was good sized for all four of us (larger of two rooms), bathroom was huge, breakfast was filling and well-balanced. Beds squeaked a bit as you moved would be only negative... The dog's tricks were really fun to see, such a good dog they have!

The hosts are so welcoming and thoughtful! I had a great night sleep, and the breakfast was delicious! I especially appreciated the home made maple syrup!

Room Tip: Perfect for us- there was a large suite and a single bedroom.

My husband and I spent 2 lovely nights in the large suite. A good,comfortable bed is very important to me becuase I have a bad back. This bed was great -- a queen bed with wonderful cozy bedding made for 2 restful nights' sleep. The room has a very large private bath with a jacuzzi tub, and a small fridge for convenience. There is also a day bed with a trundle underneath, which means that if our 10-year-old had been traveling with us there would be have comfortably been room for all three of us. The innkeepers, Wayne and Kim, were lovely and accomodating . They offered a lovely continental breakfast (OUR wish -- they offer a full hot breakfast, but that's not our style), and Kim's homemade cranberry bread was fabulous! They offered helpful travel and tourism info, including al local map and access to plenty of info about some other day-trips. And their pet cockapoo, Allie, made the stay even more delightful. Highly recommended!

This charming small 200 year old home has 2 rooms that my husband & I with my sister & her husband rented for one night to visit our sister who lives in North Granby. It was a short distance from her home. One room is very spacious with a large bathroom w/jacuzzi tub and ours was very small with a bathroom beside with private hallway. The breakfast served was very generous with fresh fruit, juice, coffee, tea, sweet bread, and blueberry pancakes w/real maple syrup. The couple were very friendly and shared their living room as a meeting room. Our visit was short but perfect for our spending time with family.

I imagine most people end up in Granby, CT for a specific purpose -- weddings, graduations, visiting family or friends. The Truman Gillet House is the perfect place to re-charge before and between activities. Breakfast is amazing and served at the guest's convenience, and Wayne and Kim are the perfect hosts. They outlined a great route for my morning runs and let my husband and I feed the sheep. The B&B is small (two rooms), and I would recommend opting for the larger room regardless of the size of your party. My husband and I were very comfortable; the comfortable accommodations and wonderful conversations with Wayne and Kim made our stay in Granby even better than expected.

When my husband wanted to attend his 35th H.S. reunion in Granby, I was worried about finding a nice place to stay. We agreed to try the Truman Gillet House BnB and not only enjoyed our stay...the delicious breakfasts (accommodating my special diet needs), the stimulating conversation, the attention to detail in the rooms...but we feel like we've found new friends. Kim and Wayne are thoughtful and kind and excellent conversationalists. We stayed in the Granby room, which is a bit small, but since we had access to the living room and dining room, we did our computer work (wifi) and reading at the end of the day there. Everything was very clean, neat and tastefully decorated in country style. It was warm, not drafty like some of the older BnB's can be in the winter. It is on the main road, which makes it easy to find and a good location for getting to other places, but if you are a light sleeper and sensitive to street noises, you may want to bring your ear plugs. They were conscientiously training their new dog, Allie, to be as respectful and thoughtful as they are. We would definitely recommend this BnB.

Truman Gillet House is a small charming B&B just outside of the city of Granby, CT. The Innkeepers Kim and Wayne are delightful. There are two rooms in the Inn, the Conneticut Room is spacious with a large four poster bed and a large bathroom with a jacuzzi. The breakfast of fresh fruit and egg souffle was delicious.
