“"Welcome Home"”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

In February four of us returned to Breakfast on the CT for the third year in a row. It never disappoints. This has become a "relief from cabin fever" weekend andhelps those of us who live in the northeast get through the cold, grey wet days to come. It begins with a smiling welcome from John or Donna. We have already chosen our preferred rooms {#1 for us with the king size bed on the first floor} Warm red patterned quilt and pillows brighten what is probably a cold wet day outside. From thereon, it's a matter of selecting the book I want to read, settling at a table to do a crossword puzzle, or taking a nap. Dinner will be at oone of our two favorite places nearby: Peyton Place or Ariana's, both in Orford. A bit of the brandy we brought with us as we quietly chat in the living room will finish the day/
Dona's breakfasts are the stuff dreams are made of so we sit with anticipation to view the day's choices. Can't say which I have enjoyed most. Can say they are all ourtageously good. The Andersons don't even mind when we tell them we're not going sightseeing today but have decided on playing dominoes in the dining room. THis year we opted to take a look at the Ice Skating going on at lake Morey. Several of the young teams of the Pond Hockey pllayers were staying at the inn. Another delicious meal out and back for brandy and bed. Could anyone ask for more?
If you are looking for lots of outdoor activities, places to visit and shop [Farm Way, King Arthur] or a quiet nourishing retreat, Breakfast on the Connecticut has it all: Gracious hosts, fantastic breakfasts, spotlessly clean rooms and an ambiance that will make you want to stay - or at least come back again and again.

I just returned from 3 1/2 days at Breakfast on the Connecticut, sharing the space with at least 20 other women at a quilting retreat. It was the perfect place to be. The rooms are very nice and tastefully decorated. Nice quilts in each room. The innkeepers were so friendly and accommodating. The meals were 5 star, very delicious and always ample snacks to enjoy while we sewed. it was very cold so we didn't venture out much but you could tell it was a beautiful, peaceful location. It is very close to many attractions but nice to come back to this quiet setting. We are all looking forward to next year!

I think I had as much fun as I hope the quilters had. And the quilt tops that were sewn were spectacular. Even the small projects were so great that we all asked for kits. Watching the ladies sure got me fired up - I need to start to finish some of my outstanding projects. It was truly a pleasure being around such creative women.

Breakfast on the Connecticut was quite simply a place we need to go back to. Unfortunately we could only stay one night. The rooms were great and the open window sleeping is unbeatable. Sit on the river with a glass of wine (bring your own) and watch the sun go down-sweet! The owners are extremely nice and the breakfast was superb. Don't come here if you like noise. The silence is overwhelming. We felt guilty leaving as soon as we did!

We were pleased that such a wonderful getaway would be so secluded and picturesque. Location is close to Vermont and its number of covered bridges, gorges, small towns and wildlife, that we had hoped to see. Dartmouth and Hanover were part of our destination plans and only a short drive away. Breakfast was yummy and accommodations were comfortable. Our shower and sink were in our bedroom, but the only complaint we had was the movable shower head- difficult to hold and bathe at same time.Our windows and small deck faced the river and we traveled the driveway with deer and wild turkey. Polar (family dog) greeted us outside. Finding a place to eat dinner, especially on Sunday evening was a challenge, if we wanted to stay close. But we found that to be the case as we traveled the rest of the week in New Hampshire and Maine.

Room Tip: Some rooms face the river.

What a find! Beautiful surroundings, friendly innkeepers, and great food. In addition, we travelled with a small dog and the accommodations were great for a pet. As our son is in the area, we will definitely be back! Visitors from the Eastern Shore of Maryland (Chestertown).

We wanted to be on the Connecticut River for a birthday weekend and couldn't have made a better choice than Breakfast on the Connecticut. We discovered warm hosts, delicious breakfasts, clean rooms (we weren't bothered a bit by the sink and shower layout), and wonderful proximity to all things outdoors. We took advantage of the inn's boat collection and canoed the river for a couple hours then rested our sore arms in comfy chairs on the knoll overlooking the river. The options for dinners were many and the Innkeepers were happy to make reservations for us. We would visit again in a heartbeat. Thanks to Donna and John for helping to make it a memorable weekend.

Room Tip: Love the skylight and view from a room with river views.

We came for a couple of nights while exploring the region. The last 2 miles on a dirt road told us we were getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The setting is wonderful and a great place to sit overlooking the river, or to hike around the property and down the back road, or to kayak on the peaceful river. We did all of these. Inside the Inn was very charming and Donna the host was extremely gracious and helpful. Our room was spacious and very comfortable, although the whirlpool tub did not seem to work very well. In the morning we had a fantastic breakfast. You could have cold cereal, but why? On one morning we had almond croissant french toast and a vegetable frittata with or without ham. On the second morning we had wonderful blueberry pancakes or quiche. Along with this there was fresh fruit, yogurt, and juices. It was a wonderful peaceful stay that we would heartily recommend. Stella's in Lyme was great recommendation by the hostess, and the trip to Hanover either on Highway 5 or 10 is very scenic.
