Deacon Timothy Pratt Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 1 Old Saybrook B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 May 2008

we live in boston and were on our way back north from manhattan. we wanted a chance to stop and smell the roses.the deacon pratt b and b was definitely the place to do this.we arrived late in the afternoon and were taken to the sunshine room which was beautifully appointed with antique furniture in a very large room and the adjoining bathroom was also large. we were given a coupon to the dock and dine which is a fabulous seafood restaurant about one mile away on the connecticut river where it meets long island sound.the next morning, after a delightful breakfast, served by the ever smiling pat, we drove over the causeway and saw about 200 white swans swimming in the cove. all in all,this was a great place to spend a while and the staff at the deacon pratt did everything they could to make sure our stay was memorable.

One of the reasons we picked this B&B was because of the fireplace in the room. Much to our disappointment the owners had "shut down" the fireplaces because of a unseasonable "heat wave" the week before. The weather on the day we arrived and the next day was drizzly and very chilly. As we drove down, we talked about it being perfect weather for a nice fire. Being New England, one heat wave in April does not mean the chilly weather is over. The owners need to take notice of this. Having stayed at other B&B's, we were also disappointed at the lack of hominess. We were greated quickly, rushed through the lay of the land. We never saw the owners again. The cook's personality left a bit to be desired as well and so did the breakfasts. I'm sorry to say that aside from the house being a beautiful historic house, we are hard pressed to find something to encourage us to return.

My wife and I wanted a break from the turbulence engulfing our daily lives and discovered it at the Deacon Timothy Pratt Bed and Breakfast!
Patty, the innkeeper, welcomed us with a cheery, pleasant smile, then took wonderful care of us throughout our stay.
Our room, "The Library," was absolutely charming, with a lovely fireplace and a soothing Jacuzzi.
The inn is within walking distance of the town's shops, which we found fun and intriguing.
So, if you're looking for an escape to a different time (with all today's amenities) and setting, we strongly recommend considering this inn.

The weekend was very relaxing. The room was big and comfortable and the massage with Al completed the relaxation factor. Many wonderful restaurants within walking distance and a short drive away. Try the lobster bisque at Edd's but we would pass on the Dock and Dine. We will almost definitely return in the near future. Thank you so much for the great breakfast. The baked pears were delicious!
