A beautiful and well-maintained B&B in Kent, CT. We were greeted upon arrive by Peter Starbuck, the proprietor, and offered a nice afternoon tea service. Just a short drive away, there is a charming little main street full of shops and restaurants, and just a stone's throw from an excellent covered bridge. The accommodations were very nice and the breakfast was excellent. If you're going to be anywhere near Kent, this is a good place to spend a night or two.

The building is a recently renovated, partly new, traditional wooden Connecticut house, with about ten large, airy bedrooms. The owner, Peter Starbuck (no relation, as far as we could tell, to the coffee shop chain), runs the show in an affable, extrovert but quite determined manner. The rooms were clean, although the carpet should have been vacuumed each day. Breakfasts were quirky, with Peter keeping the actual menu secret until it appeared on the table, and included items such as apple sausage, blueberry pancakes, butternut squash quiche, and good coffee, but sadly they were rather nouvelle-cuisine and there was no choice. This shortcoming was made up for by the provision of an ample afternoon tea at four o’clock in front of the log fire, when we were given Italian pastries, cheese, paté, and other nibbles, as well as tea, apple juice and sherry.

The inn is a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Kent, a neat, tidy and rather twee little town, with a range of restaurants – mostly pretty overpriced. The Appalachian Trail can be accessed within a mile or so: very beautiful but 2,200 miles long.

Starbucks Inn
An elegant Inn in a very good position in Kent, which is a charming small, New England town.
The Inn is spacious and comfortable and has a really beautiful outlook at the back where the breakfast room is located.
There are several good restaurants within walking distance. Note though that in October they do not all open every day.
Peter, the host, is an interesting guy and looked after us very well. Breakfasts were excellent.
Tea is provided in the afternoon but it would be nice to be able to make a hot drink at other times. Just providing a vacuum flask of hot water and tea bags/coffee would be all it takes.
.........on the other hand Peter does provide sherry for his guests in the lounge so things weren’t so bad!
Overall we very much enjoyed our stay here.

We really enjoyed our stay in Kent. It's a lovely area and the town is full of character. The Inn is just what you would expect; a charming clapboard house in a large garden. Peter Starbuck is a delightful host and we found the accommodation spacious, comfortable and clean. There are very good restaurants in town. 'Smoked' is new and serves great food. 'The Fife and Drum' is full of New England charm; busy with pretty good food.

We would have preferred some choice at breakfast, with some simple uncooked alternatives.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room in the very nice extension is large and airy - lovely.

Afternoon tea is tea from a pot, small sandwiches followed by homemade cakes and scones, not green tea from a thermos and shop bought cookies.
The living room felt like a museum and although it was a cold rainy day the fire was not lit, so we did not linger in there.
Our room at the back of the house was a good size but the radiator (cold) was full of dust.
The bathroom was tiny with just a shower and toilet and was grubby with a stained shower curtain. The hand basin was in the bedroom so no privacy and had no shelf space for washbags etc.
We could hear conversation and TV noise from the next room.
Breakfast was ok but no choice.
Peter didn't seem to be a natural host and his appearance from the kitchen in the morning in grubby trousers and unshaven was poor.
