I purchased tickets to a show at the Warner Theater in Torrington, CT. I had never heard of Torrington in my life. I love all things B&B and so I googled B&B's in Torrington and the Inn at Mount Pleasant popped up. The pictures looked great and I had a great conversation with Bob, the owner.
Well, let me say that I was more than pleased when I arrived. Bob and his lovely companion Maggie were able to redirect us by phone after getting a little lost. The love and warmth at this place is amazing. Even though we arrived late, we were able to relax by the fire and enjoy good company and great conversation. They want every guest to feel at home and that mission was accomplished. I love the laid back philosophy here. If you want to use the kitchen, use it. If you need to wash come clothes, wash them. If you want to sit in the common area and chat, go for it. If you want to sleep in until 11:30am, that's fine too.
The Inn at Mount Pleasant is a hop, skip, and a jump to other local attractions. But the view of this place will leave you breathless. You will be tempted to sit on the porch and sip a cup of coffee while you think, dream, write, vision, or pray. Every morning I felt like I was drinking a cup of peace.
There is love in this place. And that is priceless. I have found my new home away from home.
