Head back to nature and back in time in a quaint corner of Connecticut. The Wallingford Victorian Inn, in the charming town of the same name, is neighbored by galleries, landmarks, antique shops and parks on the outside, and packed with romantic Victorian touches on the inside. You’ll experience history, greenery and scenery as a guest at this getaway, which dates back to the late 19th century – hence its original Queen Anne-style flourishes (think intricate reliefs and latticework) – and presides over the leafy intersection of two quiet streets.
The inviting property serves a gourmet daily breakfast, houses a lovely front porch and offers individually and traditionally designed suites that show off elegant décor pieces. And its location only adds to the old-fashioned, vaguely rural atmosphere, what with the above arts, culture and nature destinations, plus state parks, orchards, golf clubs and the vineyards of the Connecticut Wine Trail nearby. Looking for another perfect marriage of classic New England architecture and beautiful New England foliage? Stroll to the immaculately landscaped campus of one of America’s most famous boarding schools, Choate Rosemary Hall, right around the corner.
How to Get There
We loved our stay at The Wallingford Victorian Inn. We checked in late and did the self check-in which was very easy. There was old-timey music playing when we arrived and the down stairs area was beautiful and tastefully decked out with Victorian furniture and Halloween decorations (that time of year). The bed was comfy and the sheets were soft. Breakfast was yummy and plated beautifully. I wish we could've stayed two nights but they were booked up.
We loved staying at the Wallingford Victorian Inn! It is a lovely, beautiful cared-for old Victorian mansion. The staff is excellent and the location is perfect for walking around this charming town. The house was charmingly decorated for fall with a trio of cute witches and some friendly ghosts decorating the home! We loved our stay here and hope we'll get the opportunity to come back again someday!
A nice retreat in the middle of a business trip... The antiques and ambiance made for a great unwind. Great food just steps away. What a wonderful break from the hotel scene. Can’t wait to return. You can’t go wrong picking this b&b.
