Thank you Wayne & Kim for your generous hospitality. The rooms were cozy and clean. Each room had a bathroom and plenty of sitting area to watch tv or just talk with family. You can pick the time you want coffee and breakfast based on your schedule each day. I was able to get ready for my wedding in a...

Thank you for the kind words, we try to make our guests feel as if it's their home away from home. Allie our dogs will be glad to show her tricks for a treat any time. And who's spreading those rumors about the blueberry pancakes? I make them the way I was taught by my mother so many years ago,...

When I booked this trip I was unaware it was going to snow so much(especially being April)! We arrived later in the afternoon to be greeted by Wayne who shoveled us a path and showed us our room(the Connecticut suite). He showed us how to use the whirlpool tub and then let us settle in. This was our first B&B...

We didn't know there was any issues at the time of these guests stay until we read it here, they had left such a glowing message in our quest book. I'm sorry about any poor experience at our B&B. We are usually very good about being quiet throughout the house whenever we have guests, as can be determined from all...

We visited family in Granby, Connecticut for three days and were lucky enough to find the Truman Gillet House Bed and Breakfast on line. Kim and Wayne are a delightful couple with a beautiful home. We stayed in the Connecticut Room which is huge, as is the en suite bathroom. Everything was very well maintained and the bed was comfortable....

Stayed here for a night for my husband's birthday. The location is very quiet and relaxing. We stayed in the Connecticut Room which is so romantic and charming. The room is very spacious for a bed and breakfast but still has a charming and cozy feel because of all the lovely decorations and attention to detail. The bathroom is as...

The innkeepers were very accommodating, helpful and nice. It was great talking with them, and they had great suggestions about things to do in the area. The house was built in the 1800s, and with only two guest rooms, you will have great privacy and much solitude.

I make a biennial trip to visit relatives in Florida from my home in the Berkshires; Bradley International Airport near Hartford has the only nonstop flight that is not in a congested metropolitan area. Previously, I had stayed at some chain hotels the night before my early morning flights, but I had never felt comfortable leaving my car there for...

This is a great review, it sounds like a place I would love to stay also. My wife Kim and I try to help out where and when we can. For the trip to the airport the timing happened to be just right in between going to or coming home from work (both of us work outside the B &...

Kim and Wayne are friendly and at your service. Breakfast was tasty and the room was comfortable. I stayed at Truman Gillet House B & B in order to attend a funeral and it was conveniently located to get to both the funeral home and the church. This was my second or third time staying at Gillet House and I...

We spent two delightful nights in the Connecticut suite at the Truman Gillet house in Granby, CT. A lovely, well appointed bedroom with a very comfy bed; a large two-sink bathroom with a great oversized whirlpool bath. Great food, friendly innkeepers and even a perfect, friendly little dog.

We arrived after a harrowing snowy drive from Northern NH to this wonderful homey B & B. Wayne and his dog Ali greeted us, and we settled in right away. We were going to a family party in Windsor, CT and this place was an easy drive. Coffee and breakfast the next morning prepared by Wayne and Kim was plentiful...

I can't say enough good things about this B&B. We stayed for a week while visiting family in the area and loved every minute. The house is charming with lots of thoughtful details.
