We needed some R & R and chose the Litchfield Inn in Litchfield, Ct. It has a renovated wing and an old wing with “theme” rooms. We chose the latter. Our choice, the Lace room, was a winner. A lace canopy, a cozy, albeit electric, fireplace, a “fainting couch”. The only drawback was the need for a new mattress. Otherwise it was a lovely experience. We saw other theme rooms: Sherlock Holmes, the West and several others.
Down the spiral stairs—must be used by a lot of brides—are generous snacks, fruit, hot cross buns, coffee when we were there. The “continental” breakfast was scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, make your own waffles, yogurt, pastries, and more. And the coffee was good. A large library gathering room had a giant TV screen although the ones it the room are fine.
Dinner in the Bistro was delicious and I would recommend them. There is also a large bar, quiet and peaceful when were there.
After dinner we zipped off to the Bantam Cinema, the oldest movie house inn Connecticut. Another charmer.
The Inn gave us a AAA discount and we paid a modest $116. plus tax. It was a great weekend and we came home refreshed and rejuvenated.
