My girlfriend and I stayed at Homestead in March of 2017. We live in New York City and had planned a relaxing weekend getaway. Homestead Inn came up on our search for an affordable Bed and Breakfast and we decided to give it a try. Bob and Renee were extremely warm and friendly hosts and went out of their way...

Book early at this quaint, warm-hearted Inn. There are no other options in this area that come anywhere close to the experience you will have at the Homestead B&B. Bob & Renee are excellent hosts who quickly become dear friends. Every breakfast is daily surprise menu that never disappoints.

Recently stayed with my wife as we visited family. Couldn't decide on which room to stay in, so spent a night in the Monroe and Kennedy rooms. The inn was immaculate and the hosts Bob and Renee were amazing. French toast breakfast was one of the best I've ever had. Will stay here every time I'm in town.

Renee here. You guys are people after my own heart....can't decide which room to stay in? Heck, just book them both! It was fun watching as Molly seemed to be channeling her inner Marilyn Monroe, but likewise she clearly enjoyed Kennedy's 2 person Jacuzzi tub. So next time you'll choose.....?

We loved it here. We stayed in the two room cottage in the back. The inn keepers are extremely attentive to every last detail. They made sure we were comfortable, and saw to our every need. We played chess in their lounge with a cup of tea and a goodie. A very pleasant atmosphere and walking distance to the town...

Chess and a goodie in the Farley Room (parlor) and Scrabble and beverages in the Cottage "living room"---yes, I'd say you guys definitely know how to make the most of a B&B good time! Next time, we'll flip the game table top and you can play a rousing round of backgammon!☺☺Renee

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This quaint fifteen room Inn is located at the North end of the New Milford Green, the longest town Green in New England. Your visit with us includes our hearty continental breakfast served every glorious morning in our Victorian dining room. Enjoy a variety of yogurts, cereals, jams, cheeses, fruits, breads, muffins, juices, teas and coffee. And don't pass up the opportunity to try our signature dishes: fluffy egg bakes, bread puddings, French toast bakes, homemade breads and of course, Bill's (Not So) Secret Waffles which are talked about around the globe. This lovely corner of the Litchfield Hills offers something for everyone: fine dining; great antiquing; a wealth of trails for hiking, running, and cycling; lakes and rivers for boating, beaching, rowing and fishing; slopes for skiing and snowboarding; parks and playgrounds; local farms with seasonal fruits for the picking; year round festivals that showcase art, dance, and music; and so much more! And for those who don't want to stray too far from the Inn, downtown New Milford is just a short walk away. Main Street, Bank Street and Railroad Street are lined with shops and offer a wealth of restaurants - Italian, German, Mexican, Chinese, and Irish, just to name a few. Enjoy a self-guided tour of the town's antique homes, buildings, and churches; take in a movie at the Bank St. Theater; delight in the many summer concerts on the Green or simply take a stroll around the Canterbury School campus where both President John F. Kennedy and Paris Hilton were once students. ... more   less

Thank you for the kind words. We try to be all about service here at the Homestead and it sounds like we managed to meet that expectation set for ourselves.

I apologize for not following up on some of the important observations you shared in your review, sooner. In deed, I was filling in as innkeeper for owners Bill & Sherry Greenman while you visited. Unfortunately, Bill never made it home from that trip as he passed away from cancer after a month-long stay in the hospital in Seattle, WA. I mention this for 2 reasons: 1) Bill had been very ill the past several years; apparently, more ill than he had let on, even to his wife. As he spent 3+ years regularly undergoing radiation, chemo and various surgeries, his stamina just wasn't the same and once the cancer metastasized to the brain effecting his vision, among many other things, his ability to keep up with the aesthetic maintenance of the Inn was definitely compromised. As Sherry spent all of her time caring for Bill and providing for guests as time allowed and as best she could, her ability to pay more attention to such things was also limited; 2) while Sherry will maintain ownership of the Homestead, she has hired me as full-time Innkeeper and I, in turn, have begun increasing our staff so as to be able to address many of the things you referenced in your review.

At present, we are diligently working to spruce up the Main House and the Treadwell Annex with newer flooring and draperies. Some new guestroom bath fixtures are anticipated in the near future. Our new gardener has been hard at work on our gardens for which we hope to add better seating come Spring. We have also hired a professional chef who we expect will make some great additions to our hearty continental breakfast, though we promise to always offer Bill's famous waffles and Sherry's raved about egg bake!

You are certainly not the first guest to point out that our typically Victorian staircase can pose a challenge for some. I am in the process of providing a major information overhaul of our website; this will be one of the many specifics addressed in our updated descriptions. Additionally, when taking reservations over the phone, this is now something we specifically mention to all guests.

As for being asked for payment at time of check-in, we are finding that this is becoming an increasingly common practice among small B&Bs such as ours. It didn't always used to be this way! We felt it necessary to make this policy change a few years back when we experienced an increasing number of instances where guests would leave their room key in their guest room and "sneak out" prior to breakfast, never having paid for their stay. I suppose another alternative would be to do what the big chain hotels do, which is to record guests's credit card information at time of check in and keep it on file. Personally, I'd rather not have my credit card info retained as such, indefinitely.

I am open to suggestions and of course, we're always willing to work with our guests individually to do what makes them most comfortable and ensures that when they leave us, they do indeed feel that the Homestead is one of the best B&Bs they've ever visited!

Again, I thank you for this constructive criticism. It is extremely useful in helping us move forward and plan for the future.

With gratitude,

Francesca Morrissey
