“Excellent - wonderful hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2010

The Starbuck Inn is situated in the delightful village of Kent and is within easy access of the shops and restaurants. The afternoon tea was very welcome upon our arrival and we were made very comfortable by the Innkeeper - Peter Starbuck - who is an excellent host. We would definitely recommend to friends visiting New England.

We loved the Inn and it's grounds. Peter was/is very accomodating and down to earth in relating with the guests. The two breakfasts we had were tastefully prepared and served with the best coffee we've had in a long time. The bed was exceptionally comfortable which met Peter's standard of what a traveler wants....A good meal and a comfortable bed.
A couple of small suggestions would be some additional shelf space for toiletries in the room in which the sink is not in the bathroom and additional lighting in the large living room for people who might want to sit on the sofa or other chairs with a book or newspaper. I already miss my 4 o'clock brandy with olives and cheese snacks.

After he settled us into the “Robert Burns” room, and strolled through the pleasant town of Kent, we enjoyed our host Peter’s afternoon tea on the back patio. His offerings included green tea, coffee, sherry, and a variety of savory and sweet treats. The late afternoon sun filtered lightly through large old trees around the patio, and set a glow to the spacious lawn and rolling woodlands beyond that. It was all so peaceful. The home felt elegantly appointed, smoothly managed, and soothingly comfortable. We arrived on a Tuesday, when many local shops and restaurants were closed, but there were still several good dining options only a short walk away (and, quite a few more if we’d preferred a drive). Peter provided very helpful advice for all our needs that evening. When turning in for the night, we found the beds, soft linens, pillows and comforter all to be deliciously cozy. In the morning, our breakfast was very tasty… a highlight for me was the wonderful jam made by a local friend of Peter’s. We had a lovely time and would be very happy to return.

I was excited to stay at the Starbuck Inn, when I visited The Kent School. Peter was very kind and hospitable. The Inn is nicely appointed, and opens to a beautiful backyard with a nice view of a mountain behind it. The afternoon tea was a nice touch. The breakfast was absolutely amazing, featuring fresh hot blueberry pancakes. My Stay here did not disappoint. I wish that I could visit this area more, so that I could stay again.

If you're looking for a clean, beautifully appointed warm and friendly atmosphere in a B&B, Starbuck Inn is the ideal. Walking distance from town and restaurants and close to biking and hiking, our stay at the Starbuck Inn was a treat.. The room was large, bright and comfortable; the linens and towels plush; the living room a lovely gathering place and Peter Starbuck , a perfect and knowlegeable host who also cooks a great country breakfast. The 2 days we spent in Kent at the Starbuck Inn were so relaxing, it felt like a week long vacation.

As a road weary business traveller (female-travelling alone) who spends more than 125 nights a year in hotels, the Starbuck Inn was a glorious and unexpected departure from my usual chain hotel ho-hum experience. The Inn was initially selected soley for its proximity to my work assignment. So you may well imagine my surprise and delight upon arrival, when Peter not only greeted me at my car, but proceeded to enthusiastically carry my luggage to my room.
To say my Starbuck Inn experience was delighful in every way, would be an understatement.
The classic New England setting and extremely comfortable accomodations coupled with a most charming host, marked this stay as a welcome respite from my usual work/travel grind! Awakening each morning in such lovely surroundings, to the aroma of a special breakfast being prepared was the perfect fortification for being away from home and facing a long day of work.
Thank you Peter, I eagerly look forward to a re-run !

We love the Starbuck Inn. It's located right in Kent, CT and is a great place to stay. The innkeeper greets you at the door and provides you with snacks and sherry, and cooks a great, natural breakfast the next morning. Has a nice old fashion feel to stay. We spent our honeymoon in Kent at the Starbuck Inn.
