The Tolland Inn

October 21st, 2008 by Mariah

We’d never been to a B&B and I have always wanted to go to an establishment that had a little more intimacy and personal service. Tolland Inn is the place for us. My friend and I are planning another trip back there this November — he lives in Maryland, I in The Bronx – we meet in The Bronx and drive the few hours up to CT! The firplace & jacuzzi are simply worth it; the unpretentious atmosphere and the innkeepers made it feel almost surreal….I recommend it highly!R.H. Dorante Bronx, NY The Tolland Inn was just left a great review on TheInnkeeper.com Bed and Breakfast Guide…
