We had a lovely one night stay at the Daniel Rust House. The owners are the best hosts - super knowledgeable about the history of the house and really gracious and welcoming. The house is filled with fascinating history which we so enjoyed learning about. Our room was fabulous - super huge, with a great comfy bed and the best jacuzzi around. A wonderful retreat! In the morning we were treated to a delicious and bountiful breakfast. We were only able to stay one night, but we would recommend staying for two or more nights, is possible. This is a wonderful historic place to relax and be refreshed.

I had to present at a conference at UCONN and wanted to find a place to stay the night before the conference. When I made the reservation, I was simply expecting to 'spend the night' at the Daniel Rust House. I never imagined that my one-night stay would turn into a mini getaway! My only regret is that I was not fully able to take advantage of all that was available because my schedule was just too tight. I can't say enough about my overnight. I was 'upgraded' to a GORGEOUS room (without even asking), I enjoyed a wonderful historic tour of the house, the hostess accommodated me with an early breakfast, and I was able to have a restful sleep before my presentation. The room was perfect including the comfortable bed, fine linens, multiple pillows, and spacious facility. An added plus was the 'dog advice' I received from the owner. I can't wait to return to the Daniel Rust House with my husband for a romantic vacation!

Room Tip: I stayed in the front of the house. I had the windows open and was a little distracted by the noise.

Wonderful historic house. Fabulous inn keepers, accommodations and food...oh...the food! We sat by the fire with other guests and the inn keepers and had such a delightful time! After two days we felt like old and dear friends. We will be back!

Genuinely historic. A quiet night's sleep. A great breakfast. The hostess was helpful without being too garrulous. A pleasant base for exploring the Connecticut countryside. This area isn't a tourist mecca, but it has old New England charm.

I took my fiance here last year for her birthday. It was beautiful home decorated for the holidays . The owners are wonderful and gave us a tour and history of the house which use to serve as an underground railroad. The jacuzzi room with fireplace could not have been more perfect and romantic. Not to mention the price was great. The breakfast was absolutely amazing. If your into b& b like we are this is a must try.
