Earl Grey Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 2 Salisbury B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 March 2014

My wife and I stayed at the Earl Grey in early March, when the weather was decidedly brisk outside. Inside, the opposite: the suite we stayed in was warm and cozy, with a four poster bed in a beautifully decorated bedroom, with an adjoining sitting room furnished with comfortable chairs for reading. The single cup coffee maker was an added treat for me, who is an early riser, until we joined Dick and Patti Boyle for a marvelous breakfast.

The inn is on a hill overlooking Salisbury, which is a quaint village with interesting shops, including a very good wine store. Oh, and there were no bells or chimes at night, which was mentioned in another review. Maybe somebody turned them off.

This was a great weekend getaway, and the Boyles are charming hosts who went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable.

Room Tip: We stayed in the one suite that the B&B offers, but there's also an upstairs room with en su...

Our night's sleep was completely ruined (so was the next day, from exhaustion) by loud chimes EVERY 15 MINUTES ALL NIGHT at the adjacent town library. I hoped they'd cease at midnight. Ha! Wear your watch to bed so you can follow along 12:15; 12:30; 12:45; 1:00 (extra chimes on each hour!); 1:15; .... 2:30; .... 3:45; 4:00; 4:15; 4:30.... 5:30; 5:45; 6:00; 6:15... When we asked our hosts about this they seemed to wonder about it. I called the library later and learned the chiming is at least a 100 year tradition.

"Sleepless" has found fault in that the chimes on the village library's clock had kept him awake all night. This is the first time in our 20 years of operating the Earl Grey B&B that anyone has complained about the library's chimes. We have also contacted our business colleagues in town, one of whom lives four doors away from the library, and none of them have ever experienced that particular complaint (incidentally our B&B is two blocks away). Salisbury is a small New England village and the library's chimes have been a part of its charm for over 100 years. We wonder what "Sleepless" would write if he had stayed in a hotel near Chartres Cathedral!

We were royally entertained by our splendid hosts Richard and Patricia. Our guest cottage rooms were well equipped and comfortable. The setting of the house was beautiful and filled with bird song. Patricia's breakfasts were excellent and they were most helpful in suggesting interesting places to visit. It was our first experience of New England hospitality and one which we would be happy to repeat.

Room Tip: Only two accommodations. The guest cottage was excellent.

This now ranks at the top of our favorite b&b's. Such a wonderful place with the most welcoming hosts.

The suite, where we stayed, is a private little home with its own garden, a porch and a separate sitting area.

The home is a great sanctuary for a short-stay escape from NY!

Peace and quiet draw me back to Earl Grey B&B over and over. It feels secluded but a walk down the hill and you are right in the village of Salisbury with restaurants and shops. Patricia's breakfasts are scrumptious. And Dick's warm smile welcomes you home. Best place to stay in the NW Corner of CT to enjoy outdoors, hiking, and comforts of home.

We stayed in this B&B in 1997 and came back again in June 2012. It was delightful than, but what a change now! Our room, affectionatly called by me and my wife 'a New York room" because of the large New York poster in it, is still there, but now there is an option of renting a separate suite on the ground floor, totally renovated. Very stylish and comfortable stay and worth every penny! Richard and Patricia, our wonderful hosts, must have put great deal of time renovating it and planning every little detail! Breakfast are fantastic and location cannot be better...in "downtown" Salisbury, litteraly maybe 100 yards walking distance to shops, churches, restaurants, but nicely secluded on the edgo of the woods behind the Salisbury townhall.

Totally enjoyed our stay at this lovely b & b. We were in the newly renovated apartment and it worked very well for two couples. The hosts, Patricia and Richard Boyle, are fantastic - very accommodating. The gardens are extraordinary and the breakfast unique and delicious! We will return!
