Thank you for the great score and lovely review! We are glad that you had a nice stay with us. The little booklet on your bed is part historical and part fictional. The ghost part is fictional, so I am happy that you didn't pick up on unsettled spirits. After dining in a haunted restaurant and reading the "ghost story", the large mirror could be scary if you catch your reflection in it. We have rooms that don't have those ornate mirrors also. When you book your future reservation, please call us and we will assign you a room that doesn't have one. We look forward to seeing you again!

The rooms in the carriage house are very similar to the ones in the main house. We only allow pets in two rooms because some guests are allergic to pets. We are sold out today but you can email us at reservations@simsbury1820house and we can send you some pictures after the guests check out on Monday.
