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!!!!
