We actually live in Connecticut but we were going to the Hartford Plant and Garden Show and thought we would find some place fun and interesting to stay. We drove up to Wethersfield on a friday night and stayed at the Silas W. Robbins house. What a wonderful place! It is a beautiful restored victorian home. The owners have spared no expense and have unbelievable attention to detail. The fixtures, artwork, wall hangings...all beautiful.
We were able to walk to dinner at Lucky Lou's in the town center.
Service was friendly and helpful. The owners loaned us an umbrella for our walk into town which was nice. Breakfast was wonderful and we were 15 minutes from downtown Hartford. I would recommend this to anyone traveling in the Hartford area.
