You know there is great delight in the simple enjoyments of local color.Those enjoyments are the things we remember when returning home at the end of a trip. Those are the very things we envisioned when designing the concept for The Connecticut River Valley Inn located in the heart of Glastonbury's historic district in the beautiful State of Connecticut. The Connecticut River Valley Inn is a 4 season destination in the heart of Connecticut. From remote controlled air conditioning (artistically hidden behind art), and gas fireplaces to California king beds, balconies, LCD TV's, body spray showers, linens, towels – all chosen for ultimate comfort, this artistically renovated historic 1740's 5 bedroom B&B has much more than the average modern convenience.
While the outer structures have retained the beautiful integrity of the historic period Glastonbury is known for, the guest rooms are full of romantic (but completely updated!) aesthetic. Rooms are spacious, extremely comfortable, quiet and private. Enjoy the modern convenience of wireless internet in a place where otherwise you might feel transported to an earlier period in history.
Perfectly located on a beautifully landscaped 2 acre property, a three minute walk brings you to a beautiful river trail, three minutes in the opposite direction brings you to multiple high quality shops and restaurants - or just admire the view while swinging in the hammock.
The location of the inn is also close to downtown Hartford (10minutes) but far enough away to feel like you are in a quaint town in the countryside. And, indeed you are - Glastonbury, being the second largest town in the Connecticut in terms of geographic size, abounds in small family fruit, vegetable, dairy and livestock farms, back country roads and hiking, biking and boating opportunities, yet has all the contemporary amenities such as day spas , golf courses, shopping and theater.
Our proximity and easy access to and from all the major highways (Rt 84, Rt 91 and Rt 2) makes this property the ideal location to take day trips throughout the state as well and a destination for business meetings and retreats, family reunions, weddings or any special celebration.
Your stay also includes a three course breakfast consisting of:
- fresh fruit & fresh juice;
- homemade breakfast breads such as lavender white chocolate chip scones, lemon/ginger scones, lemon/poppyseed bread, or fresh cranberry walnut tea cake
- a hot serving of our yummy cinnamon & vanilla French Toast with real maple syrup
- OR our spinach, mushroom, scallion & feta cheese (and sometimes a bit of chorizo sausage) quiche,
- or perhaps a veggie omelette or potato, bacon and spinach frittata,
- or crab eggs benedict. As one of our happy guests has proclaimed, "Yummy!"
We can also cater to guests with dietary restrictions, allergies or food lifestyles such as Vegetarian, Vegan, Low Fat, Gluten Free, etc. Visit our "Breakfast" page!
The feel of the rooms, the friendliness of the town, the inviting sites nearby, and the great food, - this very special place is one of New England's best kept secrets!
Just as it has for centuries, Connecticut remains the home of original ideas and fresh thinking. A magnet for dreamers and doers, the state blends the old and historic with the young and energetic to create an inspiring dynamic — one that motivates people to experience new things, defy convention and blaze their own trails. A free download of the song, "Better With You," featured in this video is available on Visit Connecticut’s Facebook page. The song was commissioned exclusively for the campaign, performed by the Hartford Symphony Orchestra and sung by UCONN student, Dinelle Glaze.
