Peter Starbuck is very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The room is comfortable and clean with ensuite bathroom and cable tv. The breakfast was tasty and healthy. We enjoyed our stay.

An elegant, friendly and altogether wonderful place to stay in a charming town in a beautiful part of New England. Less than two hours from New York City, the Starbuck Inn in Kent is everything a country destination should be but so often isn't. Great rooms, a delicious breakfast featuring local produce and a warm, knowledgeable and charming host. It doesn't get any better.

During our 7 week holidays in New England and eastern Canada we stayed in wonderful B&B's. We always like to be in one of those inviting, warm and cosy inn's where the owner creates an intimate atmosphere and does feel you at home rightaway. The brochure of this B&B appeals to this feeling stating: 'the warmest B&B hospitality'.
I am afraid we did not find it here. I must say that apart from us there was one other couple staying, which was not present most of the time and it seemed that the owner did nof find it necessary for instance to lit the open fire and make it a bit pleasant to stay in the sitting room. Questions were dealt with in a bit formal way and the house definitively lacked a woman's touch: nowhere any flowers, a cafetaria -like diningroom, it all felt very sterile. The bedrooms were modern and nice: no complaint about that. Breakfast was nothing to get excited about and the landlord was clearly looking forward to clean everything as soon as possible and deal with other, more important matters. A bit disappointing!

Chose Starbuck Inn based on reviews on this board. It is located perfectly on the main road but looks out on rolling hills which were ablaze with color. The room was beautiful and comfortable. Kent was the perfect place to visit nearby places is all directions. Peter provides a great breakfast. Can't wait to go back next year.

I am picky but would highly recommend the Starbuck Inn. The inn looks very recently renovated and is spotlessly clean. Our rooms were sound-proofed so we never heard another guest. We were surpised at breakfast to find that there were actually other guests in the house. The inn is down the street from the restaurants and stores of Kent and Peter Starbuck is both helpful and unobtrusive. We are going back next year!!!!!!!!!!

Travelers to Kent, Connecticut must first understand one thing: There are no chain hotels in Kent -- only a handful of B&Bs, and they are all generally pricey. With that as a given, unquestionably the nicest place to stay in Kent is the Starbuck Inn. Not only will guests feel pampered in accommodations that are meticulously maintained, they will also be treated to an ever-changing and always-filling breakfast prepared and served by the inn's owner, Peter Starbuck. Peter has a way about him that instantly makes guests feel like family. Stopping in Kent recently - sans spouse - on the way home from a business trip, the Starbuck Inn was the only place I considered staying because I felt safe there. It was like coming home.

Starbuck Inn is a recently renovated colonial home that offers the vacation or business traveller a gracious and warm retreat located within walking distance of good local restaurants. We arrived in the afternoon and moments later our guest arrived to join us for tea and yummy cookies and cakes in Starbuck's pleasantly furnished large living room. We chatted through two pots of tea and could have moved onto the sherry but for an early dinner reservation.
The rooms are clean, comfortable, well-appointed and have wireless (and wired if you like) internet connection. Beds are very comfortable, baths are commodious, sparkling, and have hot hot water in a flash.
The breakfasts have been wonderful; we have been there a few times visiting the nearby school and always linger over the morning treats. Without exception the best coffee ever and my favorite breakfast? Well, the blueberry pancakes, sausage, fruit, and orange juice has got to win #1 in my book. The innkeeper knows his stuff.
