We were engulfed in a severe downpour the night we drove through southwestern Connecticut, and the rain let up briefly as we entered Wethersfield, a town we had never known existed before Trip Advisor let us know there was a historic inn there. Tom Aufiero, the innkeeper, welcomed us on our arrival and showed us to the smallish but comfortable room we had reserved. We had chosen the most economical room, one that shares a bath down the hall with guests in other rooms, of whom there was none.
Mr. Aufiero donned a white chef's attire in the morning to prepare an excellent breakfast in the very elegantly and tastefully appointed dining room. Both the meal and the furnishings get high marks.
Should add, in passing, that Wethersfield turns out to be a charming fossil, a town that has successfully preserved the appearance and character of a small New England town at the turn of the 19th century. The Chester Bulkley House fits right in.More
