We made a last minute decision to hit the slopes as our President's Day regularly scheduled plans fell through. We called Kenni of The Wallingford Victorian Inn and she could not have been more gracious. The 125+ year old Victorian was better than we imagined. The suite was spacious and the beds were perfect. We were greeted with unbelievable breakfasts...

We were looking for a charming Bed and Breakfast or Inn for a weekend getaway. The Wallingford was better than advertised! The place is beautiful throughout, and the rooms were comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was delicious and filling, and the service was friendly and attentive. A wonderful place, and we will happily come back for a return visit!

This was a beautiful and relaxing and perfect 15th anniversary. We have been to a few B and B's before. This is by far the best. The owners and the innkeeper Kenni were warm and welcoming. No detail was over looked. I absolutely recommend the Wallingford.

The Wallingford Victorian Inn was more wonderful than our family could have ever imagined. We were celebrating two birthdays and the innkeeper, Kenni was amazing in helping make it special by organizing a cake and balloons and preparing their favorite breakfast items. We were the only family at the inn during the wknd we stayed, so Kenni graciously offered to...

Outstanding B&B. the room was magnificent, breakfast was excellent, and Kenni the innkeeper was very friendly and hospitable. Highly recommend it and would definitely go back again. During breakfast Kenni took time to have a conversation with us and we felt so right at home.

We had travelled up from New York by train to go to a concert. As we didn't have a car we wanted something within walking distance of the train station and this was the only option.

We arrived late but were left a welcome letter and instructions on how to find our room and how to access refreshments. We had a very peaceful night's rest and a delicious breakfast in the morning. Kenney, the innkeeper, was lovely, quite friendly, and helpful. We would definitely stay there again!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Wallingford Victorian Inn regally presides over the corners of North Main Street and Curtis Avenue in Wallingford, CT. Once the site of a quaint cottage sheltered by trellises and grape arbors, in 1890 the property was purchased and the cottage razed to make way for a Grand Queen Anne Victorian. Designed by the firm of Allen and Tyler Architectural Associates of New Haven, it was constructed by the C.F. Wooding Company of Wallingford, a name that to this day connotes excellence in craftsmanship, constructed at a time when execution of detail and ornamentation was a hand crafted trade. The Victorian is comprised of one dramatic hallmark of the period after another; complex patterned masonry chimneys; finials capping hipped slate roofs; multi patterned textures of shingles and clapboard; intricate relief work (grapes that reflect its humble origins), and small latticed porches, just to name a few. According to local historians, originally it was a wedding gift to Georgianna Simpson Hull and Charles Tibbits from her parents Gurdon W. Hull and Elizabeth Simpson Hull, whose father founded Simpson, Hall & Miller Company, a prominent silver manufacturer which later became International Silver. The family is steeped in Wallingford history and they were true philanthropists. No expense or detail was spared in the construction of this handcrafted home. Over the past century and a quarter the Victorian has watched over the town of Wallingford as it grew and more buildings sprung up. The dirt roads became asphalt, and horse and carriage gave way to motor vehicles. Fashions and trends flicked by in the blink of an eye. Still it stood, rising on its corner, an enduring landmark in the cycle of change. It has prospered in good times, and endured the hard times. It has changed hands and purpose, yet still stands proud. Come, step back in time with us, when work, rest and recreation ebbed and flowed with the rhythms of nature. Enjoy this remarkable property surrounded by period furnishings. Stay over and enjoy one of our five suites with exquisite attention to detail. In the morning awake to a gourmet breakfast made just for you by our chef innkeeper. Come, enjoy all this in a turn-of-the-century, handcrafted Victorian mansion, The Wallingford Victorian Inn. ... more   less
