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
My wife and I spent 3 nights at the inn during August. Even though the weather was rainy during a good part of the time, the experience was wonderful. The inn was immaculate and clean. We stayed in the suite on the top floor and it was beautiful. The breakfasts were very good and the staff was friendly and helpful. It was our 1st time at the inn; my wife had a co-worker who recommended it and we were very satisfied. The front porch is a great place to sit with a drink or read a book. This is an inn that we will return to soon.
Beautiful house, beautifully restored, clean, all details taken care of by the innkeeper, everyone nice, the breakfasts were delicious, quaint town, three block walk to town, great restaurants close by, bicycles are available to ride, my wife and I highly recommend anyone to stay there
Beautiful room. Nice people. Great food. Great water pressure. Highly recommend. We arrived really late at night and there were directions for us in a basket on the porch on the door code. This did not seem to be a problem at all. We have a daughter in college in New Haven and this is so much better than staying in New Haven. Only 15 minutes from New Haven.
Adorable place to stay!
Everyone who works in there is really nice, the house itself is very welcoming, rooms are big, clean and provided with everything, great WiFi service, awesome food including snacks available at any time you wish. Delicious breakfast served at the table!
Couldn’t have asked for more!
One of the best places I stayed in during my trip in the US, really recommended!
