We welcome you inside our historic Connecticut mansion that is now a New England bed and breakfast. The Seaman-Brush house was first built in 1843, and renovated in 1900 by architect Stanford White and completed in 1906.
While every room in our New England bed and breakfast tells a story of the history of this gorgeous house, our common areas are open for visits to all our guests. Be sure to look at the detailed craftsmanship of the wainscoting and plasterwork throughout the common areas and in some of the rooms in the older portions of the house.
Our dining room, parlors and reception area are all laid-out in front of you when you enter our beautifully-crafted front entry-way. Enjoy a delicious breakfast or afternoon tea in our dining room or relax with a good book (or laptop) in one of our parlors before you enjoy a stroll around our grounds and outdoor swimming pool. However you decide to enjoy the peaceful serenity of our bed and breakfast near New York City, you are most welcome!
The dining room of our bed & breakfast was the house’s dining room when it was a private home as well as a post-World War II hotel (we still have a copy of the menu from that time). It’s sunny and bright and has a lovely view of the pool, patio, and gardens to the south of the house. The dining room of our classic Connecticut bed and breakfast is where we serve our complimentary buffet breakfast.
The North Parlor, themed with red accents, holds reading materials (including our small library of both classic and contemporary literature) and games. Curling up by the gas fireplace in this room is a great way to enjoy our romantic bed and breakfast with a loved one. This parlor can be closed-off for small conferences of up to twelve people.
The South Parlor, themed with gold accents, adjoins the dining room and provides direct access to the patio and pool. Bright and airy, this parlor is a favorite among many visitors to our CT bed and breakfast.
The reception area of our B&B is located in the foyer of the house, directly in front of the main door. Our actual front desk is located in the former site of a very cramped bathtub!
