“Wonderful Stay At The Dana Holcombe House”
Reviewed 9 October 2011

I just returned from a weekend at this absolutely stunning guest house in Newtown, Ct. It has to be the finest and most tastefully decorated guest house I've ever experienced, and I HAVE stayed in many guest houses in many states and in several coutries. There is exquisite attention to detail, as if every painting and every article of furniture has been placed just right, with reflection and thought.

The most critical element in a guest house, however, in my humble opinion, is the attitude and behavior of the staff and owners (if they are on premise), and Jane and John (and their staff) shine in this area. They are friendly, gracious and accommodating but without being too present or too pushy. In other words, they are there if you need them, but they also give you space if you want to be quiet and relax in a corner somewhere.

I would definitely recommend this guest house to anyone who wants understated elegance, very comfortable surroundings and extremely pleasant innkeepers. Great job, Jane and John!!!!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are tastefully decorated and very comfortable.

We stayed at the Dana Holcombe House over Labor Day weekend in conjunction with a family wedding at the house. Our stay was incredible. The house is immaculate and so tastefully done, pride and love throughout the house. John and Jane (the innkeepers) were unfailing kind and generous with their time and hospitality. They made us feel as if we were arriving home after a long period apart. Our weekend was absolute perfection- as was the wedding. We'll be talking about the breakfasts for a long time to come.

Cozy, clean, charming...everything we expected and more. Our suite was luxurious; the owners were efficient without hovering; the decor elegant without chintzy clutter; lots of books and rooms to sit and talk,and perfect location on Newtown's Main Street.

Enjoyed our stay very much as this is a very beautiful place, and when I left my video camera there, somehow they found out I was down the street and brought it to me(still don't know how that happened but was pleasantly surprised)

We stayed overnight in this elegant, impeccably managed, and friendly B&B.
The rooms are tastefully furnished and have all needed amenities in excellent condition..
The breakfast was delicious.
A real find and quite reasonably priced.
