Beautiful Inn. Our room was a suite that included a separate bedroom, bathroom and siting room. Evening wine and cheese reception provided an opportunity to meet Innkeepers. Within walking distance of several unique restaurants. Wonderful breakfast.

To my family and I this is far more than a wonderful bed and breakfast in Wallingford, it was the home of my great grandmother Georgiana Tibbits, and her husband Charles Henry Tibbits Sr.. Karl and Sharlene welcomed both my mother Anne Rowan Taber, and I this past weekend, and helped us relive lifelong memories. They also shared their joy...

The inn was beautiful inside and out. Our room was spacious and every amenity was provided. Our hosts were warm and outgoing and we enjoyed engaging with the other guests while we were served wine and appetizers. Breakfast was homemade and delicious! We highly recommend staying at the Wallingford Victorian Inn.

The Inn was everything we thought it would be and more. From the minute we stepped inside Jayne made us feel like family. Her warmth and personality made us feel as if we new each other forever. Awesome breakfast and the best banana bread we've ever had. Thanks for making our stay very special.

We stayed for a single night only, as a last stopover on our way back to JFK International after a two week roadtrip in NE USA. We were totally stunned by the sheer beauty of the house itself; a wonderful, no expenses spared-restorated Victorian mansion. The room was incredibly beautiful and comfortable. Several "common" rooms (library, music room, dining room...

My husband and I have stayed in a lot of different places. This is definitely one of the best. The inn is a Victorian from the late 1800's and has been beautifully restored to its former glory.

The Inn keeper Jayne is an energetic woman. She is an excellent chef, from the wine and cheese hour to morning breakfast, the food was delicious!! The Inn is in immaculate condition. Each bedroom is beautiful and has its own individual bathroom. I would highly recommend it. Would definitely go 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
