Colonial-Style Bed and Breakfast in Charming Connecticut Town

Legend has it that in the 1800s, the Duchess of Bedford started having light snacks and tea in the afternoon to stay energized during the long gap between breakfast and supper. It quickly caught on as a British ritual that still lingers today. Despite being on the other side of the pond in a small town in Connecticut, Starbuck Inn Bed and Breakfast draws on this English tradition with a daily serving of hot earl grey, housemade sandwiches, pâtés, and desserts. Like a proper high tea, it's meant to be a social occasion; treats are arranged around an antique sofa and sitting chairs in the living room to encourage conversation.

The inn also evokes the English countryside—it was built in the colonial style with 2.5 acres comprising a front lawn and rear gardens. Starbuck Inn serves a complimentary hot breakfast each morning in the dining room, and on pleasant days you can take your meal out on the back patio. Organic eggs are sourced from a local farmer, and many ingredients come right from the inn’s own gardens. Some of the more popular recipes on the menu include blueberry pancakes, a sausage scramble, and the inn's signature home fries.

A top-to-bottom renovation in 2003 outfitted Starbuck Inn with modern amenities such as central air and custom-built furniture, including the elaborate armoires in the inn’s six rooms. Accommodations are soundproof, and the inn's wide front lawn puts enough space between the rooms and Kent's Main Street so that noise won't disrupt your sleep or a séance with King George III.

Kent, Connecticut: Historical Town with Art Galleries and Quaint Wooden Storefronts

Kent is located about 53 miles west of Hartford in Connecticut and roughly a two-hour drive north from New York City (87 miles). It has a small-town atmosphere borne out of its long history as a farming community and iron-ore manufacturer. The downtown area is a mix of quaint residences and wooden storefronts housing diverse cafés and shops. Several art galleries also line the avenues here, including the contemporary Morrison Gallery, heralded by the New York Times as "a linchpin of Litchfield County's art scene."
