Mountain View Inn in Norfolk, Connecticut is located in a restored Gilded Age Victorian home that is filled with period antiques. The city is in the Litchfield Hills and has three state parks with hiking trails.
This is a review from a traveler who stayed at the inn last year.
What an extraordinary experience! The inn itself is magnificent. Victorian décor doesn’t usually resonate with me, but the Mountain View is infused with such artistry and taste that it took my breath away. Every detail of design and comfort was thought of. Breakfast was a feast. However, the crowning jewels of the inn are the charming innkeepers themselves. From the moment we walked in the door they set a tone of informal grace and warmth. They generously shared their wealth of knowledge about the area, its history and possibilities. We’ll return again just for the fascinating conversation!
