“A slice of paradise”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

We returned to High Meadow to enjoy the Thai Suite - such extravagance! An incredibly comfortable king size bed, a large bath including a jacuzzi & a separate shower stall - the entire suite decorated with interesting artifacts from the owners' travels to Thailand. The most spectacular part of the "Thai Suite" experience was waking up to the gorgeous meadow views. If we had more time, we would've loved to stroll the beautiful 70 acre property with commanding views if the surrounding countryside. Our breakfast served by our gracious hosts, Nancy & Bob included delicious baked blueberry french toast, organic bacon, baked apples, fresh squeezed orange juice and strong, rich coffee. We look forward to returning to High Meadow B&B to enjoy the exquisite country elegance which Nancy & Bob provide their guests!

We loved our stay at High Meadow. Nancy and Bob treated us with a warm welcome and served us excellent fresh omelettes and made oatmeal the steel-cut way. The bathroom by itself was larger than some entire rooms we have encountered in other B&Bs. The house was decorated in an unusual fashion with unique items from Thailand and elsewhere. It was relaxing to sit on a bench in the back yard overlooking the garden with beautiful butterflies and a sweeping view of the countryside. There are several wineries nearby, some of which you can visit--including one literally across the street. We definitely plan to stay here again the next time we're in the area.

As someone who grew up in the nearby town of North Haven and visits family in Durham and Meriden several times a year, I was astounded to discover this lovely, quiet, secluded place, which sits on 70 acres only a 15 to 20-minute drive away, just off I-91 (exit 15). I hope to make staying here here a habit.
The grounds and gardens alone are reason to visit. But as other reviewers have already noted, the house is remarkable, the hosts delightful, the rooms comfy (my elderly mom and I slept like rocks), and the breakfast delicious. We stayed in the air-conditioned Blue Room, which has a large private bath; my shower was hot and the towels were plush. Why stay in a hotel when instead you can enjoy an adventure like this?

Room Tip: Just for fun, I would like to try all of the rooms in turn. Brae Cottage also looks heavenly. The B...

We stayed here when visiting Wesleyan for parents' weekend. We were in the Blue Room, which is spacious, with windows looking out over the countryside. Breakfasts were delicious, and we had a good time chatting with the owners and other guests. The inn is filled with fascinating art that the owners brought back from Thailand. Convenient to Middletown (about 20 minutes' drive) and New Haven.

While working in Wallingford, I spent three nights at High Meadow. I plan to return every time I'm in town. The owners have gently renovated this historic house, while introducing everything necessary for visitors' comfort. The very private Master Suite had a bed more comfortable than my own at home, a well-equipped bathroom, high-quality linens, and an interesting and tasteful mix of comfortable upholstered furniture, antiques, and art collected by the owners. Breakfast was perfectly cooked and delicious. Country quiet just minutes from the town center made High Meadow a perfect location.

My husband and I spent 1 night at this B&B and both of us loved it. From the beautiful location, to the quaint colonial house, to the comfy bed, to the delicious breakfast - everything was wonderful. The hosts were very sweet, we thoroughly enjoyed chatting with the owners! We went to a concert at the Oakdale Theater and wanted to find a place to stay overnight - so we wouldn't have to travel back to WMass late at night. High Meadow was perfect. We will definitely be back. Stay was so much nicer than if we had booked a hotel chain. We stayed in the Master Suite but hope to try the Thai suite some time in the future.

We went to HM for my birthday and experienced a piece of heaven in the middle of the crisp New England fall. The Thai Suite feels like you're in SE Asia, but with winter quilts and a jacuzzi in the bathroom. It is the most gorgeous and unusual experience I have had yet at a B&B. The suite also has its own separate entrance for maximum privacy and romance. Bob and Nancy serve a splendid morning breakfast with all local ingredients and were eager to entertain and even lent us their massive poodle to accompany our romp on the grounds. A vineyard is just down the street. If you're looking for a place to unwind, hear your own thoughts and snuggle down with your partner, this is it!
