Breakfast on the Connecticut was built in 1996 in the tradition of Shaker simplicity. The New England Inn’s 15 guest rooms are bright, airy and uncluttered, almost evenly split between the Main House and the attached 12 sided Shaker barn. Breakfast on the Connecticut sits on 23 acres in rural Lyme, just a dozen miles north of Hanover and Dartmouth College.
Attention to detail somewhat belies the Shaker simplicity. There is cherry trim throughout, granite counter-tops, a stunning cherry spiral staircase leading to our two suites, reproduction Shaker furniture blended with antiques, a parlor grand and Pompanoosuc Mills furniture in the breakfast room of our New England inn.
Two common rooms provide ample room to sit and relax indoors, while our screened porch offers a comfortable shelter on a rainy day. On those clear days, however, you’ll enjoy one of our Adirondack chairs or benches overlooking the river where you can sit back and take in the wonderful views.
Breakfast on the Connecticut has all the relative comforts you would expect of an upscale New England Inn including private baths, A/C, radiant heat, WIFI and excellent cell service. So bring your cell phone and laptop but leave your cares and stress behind.
