Our experience at the Tucker Hill Inn was comically bad. While the Inn itself is old, creaky and garish---think mismatched wallpapers, sagging beds, and stuffed bunnies hidden in corners--the worst part was the abrasive and unprofessional innkeeper. She hovers over her guests and wears them down with inane (and insulting!) chitchat and then requests payment from you before you even...

I've stayed at this inn multiple times over the last ten years, and I have to say that I don't understand the previous reveiws. The host and hostess are gracious and friendly, the rooms are immaculate and quaint, and you cannot ask for better scenery. As for the lack of elevator (a previous poster complained about the staircase), this is...

Stayed here for 2 nights in May, because it was a convenient location for the weekend. House looks great from outside, but inside is very dark and musty, and our room was very "creaky" for lack of a better word. Every footstep was heard, which was embarrassing, as we came home late both both evenings and had to worry about...

Stayed at this inn for 2 nights and would not go back again. Half opened bottles of toiletries is not my idea of cleanliness. Air conditioner was old and noisy. Breakfast was OK.

We had activities planned in Litchfield, but could not find a B&B there which had everything we were looking for. So I branched out my search and found this inn about a half hour south in Middlebury. Everything was nice enough as it was clean, roomy and had a decent breakfast. The hostess was very sociable, but the host was...

Last night of our holiday in the US... exhausted after a six hour drive towards JFK ... we knocked on the door of the Tucker Hill Inn and found a lovely welcome, a huge double bed, freshly baked cookies, a peaceful wooded setting and a super breakfast (bacon and french toast!!) ... we just loved it. Excellent!

The Tucker Hill Inn in Middlebury is fine. If you need a place to lay your head, it is a clean, comfortable environment. The hosts are accommodating, though being told by the hostess that she's "not a morning person" is not exactly uplifting. The house itself is large and lovely, but the decor lacks flair or charm. Artificial flowers in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tucker Hill Inn Bed and Breakfast opened originally in 1923 as a "Tea Room". Known then as "Lift the Latch Inn", it became one of the premier catering houses in Connecticut for some 30 years. Many weddings and social affairs were held here and many a bride has descended the winding staircase within the entrance foyer. In 1985, Rich and Susan Cebelenski purchased the property. Renamed the "Tucker Hill Inn", the doors were opened as a charming bed and breakfast inn for all to enjoy. Tucker Hill Inn is a gracious New England Colonial home situated on lovely grounds that are lightly shaded by ancient oaks and maples in Middlebury, CT. It is a setting suggesting rural life, yet the location is convenient to downtown business and shopping. In the surrounding area are many antique shops and flea markets. At a premier location for pleasure or business the "Tucker Hill Inn" is located at the foot of the Litchfield Hills. Centrally located between New York City (less then two hours) and Boston, "Tucker Hill" is easily accessible from either location as a final destination point or mid-way stop. ... more   less
