I do not usually take the time to write reviews - good or bad - but I felt the need to do so for Mary's and Dave's hidden gem in Plantsville -Southington. For years I had driven by but was unaware of how nice this place is. I stayed there with my two tween/teen daughters for two nights while my wife hosted a weekend birthday celebration at our house nearby with her girlfriends. I had a great weekend away without having to go far. Let me start with agreeing with the other reviewers that Mary and Dave are excellent hosts and cooks. The rooms are immaculately kept with the most comfortable beds you will find. The breakfast is filling and expertly prepared - loved in particular the fresh maple syrup and Dave's overview of how he extracts it from the trees in his yard and prepares it for use. We had use of the large living room area equipped with flarscreen and cable. The wi-fi also kept us plugged in during our visit. Anything we needed, we had it, from fresh coffee to bottled water and cookware and utensils for our takeout. Most of all I enjoyed the conversation with Mary and Dave and as good hosts do, they know just how much personal space the guest needs. I am glad to have met Mary and Dave and will recommend the "Captain" to family and friends who visit us but want their own space for a night or two.
