The Thimble Islands Bed & Breakfast is the perfect oceanside B&B. Tony & Julie are brilliant hosts, full of local knowledge and we enjoyed our conversations with them - they go out of their way to make you feel at home.

The rooms (yes, as a matter of fact we stayed in both!!) are spacious with dream-bathrooms and comfy-beds. The breakfast was delicious and made to order. Julie and Tony gave us some tips...

We loved everything about this bed and breakfast. We rented the Heron room for ourselves and the Egret room for our daughter and her girlfriend, and both were stunning. Julia and Tony were gracious and social hosts; they stayed up with us late to chat and socialize. The breakfast was fresh and yummy. The star of the show is the...

This is the BEST B&B we ever have been. The location, the owners, the house itself is magnificent. The breakfast is made to order and Julie and Tony was the best hosts we ever met.

From the minute you drive into the private road that leads to the B & B to the magnificent home that is the Thimble Islands B & B on a peninsula on the Long Island Sound that is dotted with the Thimble Islands, everything is sumptuous and beautiful.

We love staying at the Thimble Islands Bed and Breakfast. The view from the property is amazing. The interior is kept immaculaute. The furniture is very thoughtfully designed. The bed was wonderfully comfortable. And Tony and Julie are the most gracious hosts. You must try Tony's special omelet.

Some people were just meant to be innkeepers. Some locations were just meant for a B&B. Tony & Julie Broom have what it takes. On the spur of the moment, I decided my wife needed some "shore" time and I went looking for a hotel or B&B on the shore in CT. I just happened on a listing for this...
