As gorgeous as the inn and surrounding woodlands are, the hustle and bustle of the city will seem like it's a million miles away... but the Guest House is actually a lot more convenient than that! Just about halfway between New York and Boston, (a couple of hours) or just 35 miles from Hartford, CT (even less from New Haven or New London), this magnificent retreat location is far more conveniently located than one could ever hope for! Fly in to Hartford and you'll be unpacking your bags in under an hour!

But of course, it's too good a place to keep all to yourself. You can invite up to 90 of your closest friends or associates to stay overnight. The theatre-style event room seats 100, while the largest of the classrooms seats 40. In all, there are 4 meeting chambers, and then there are the rooms and lodge areas, of course.

Technology? Wifi throughout the buildings, LCD projectors where appropriate. Didn't bring your laptop? No problem. There's a PC available for guests. The Guest House is truly one of the top East Coast business retreat locations.

Here's one of the best parts: The meals are all delicious, home made - from scratch - with locally grown organic ingredients whenever possible!

After the meal is over, enjoy your dessert while sipping on a freshly brewed cup of fair-trade coffee.
