It was a last minute decision to take a trip that brought us to Greenwich. Actually, my husband read about the highly rated French restaurant located within this Inn. As we were booking the room for two nights just a few days before our arrival, there were no longer many choices of rooms available. Each room is unique. We had stayed in the room pictured above and found it comfortable. Perhaps the decor was a little bit too "flowery" for our taste, but the king size bed was quite comfortable and the large windows made the room appear larger. The bathroom was small, basic, clean, with a modern large walk-in glass enclosed shower. The rest was just a little tight with one sink only and shelf space to share, but good enough for just a two night stay. The Bvlgari toiletries, my favorite, were a very nice surprise. Classy! Staying in the main house is always my priority, in any establishment, that also offers rooms somewhere else on the property. Our room was at the end of a long hallway in the main house on the second floor, and I was pleasantly surprised how quiet it was during the night. We slept well. There are some squeaky floors throughout, it is an old charming inn after all. We enjoyed late breakfast (not included in our rate), served by Luis on the sunny glassed-in porch. The service and food selection were wonderful, it was very peaceful. Most guests were gone at that point, or so it seemed. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, surely beautiful in every season. Parking was on the property... The room daily rate at about $450 with tax, seemed a bit high at first. Easily justified though, considering the luxurious Thomas Henkelmann restaurant located in the main house. The restaurant is well known and highly rated for its fine French cuisine. Michelin-starred. It's relatively close proximity to NYC is an added value.
It does not get any better in Greenwich. I have been dining and staying at this charming inn for a number of years and am always sad to leave. The staff and owner are wonderful and the food fantastic. Homestead Inn - Thomas Henkelmann is a truly special property and perfect for a romantic get-away or a weekend with the family. I can't wait to return.
The Homestead Inn is a take on teh European concept of attaching a nice small hotel to a high-end restaurant. We booked it for a one-night getaway from Manhattan, and it was a good choice. After our lovely meal we were happy to get to our well-appointed room. The staff are very welcoming, and you could see that the connection between restaurant and hotel was seamless. The style is eclectic. For a feel, you should imagine the nicest B&B you have ever stayed at, and add some luxurious touches. Everything one would expect of a nice hotel room was available. The sound insulation was surprisingly good. The only downside was the (plush) bed slept a bit hot, so we had to spend a bit of work tossing off all the sheets and covers and cranking up the AC on a hot summer night. Overall, I'd recommend this hotel for a romantic getaway with outstanding food..
We stopped at the Homestead Inn, the week of all the college graduations in the area. All the hotels were full. Went on TripAdvisor and got a room at the Inn. The hotel was full but they had a room at the guest house, it was wonderful, unique, comfortable, and very pretty
Old house with a very special, cosy atmosphere. Some things seem to be a bit outdated, but this is part of the charm of the hotel.If you engage in it, you'll have a wonderful time there. Kitchen run by a great chef. Overall a very pleasant experience.
I stayed at the Homestead Inn for 3 nights as I was to attend a 60th birthday party at the hotel. The welcome was warm, my room luxurious and tranquil. The staff were attentive, especially the excellent barman. Cuisine was all delicious. I can’t fault anything. I had a particularly happy stay there.
My experience at this property was one of transition from the hustle-bustle of New York City to a tranquil reunion with friends. I was able to enjoy a beautifully served breakfast While relaxing on the closed in porch after a rainy late-night arrival.
After driving into a park-like setting of manicured lush green lawns, we were greeted by the manager who helped us with our very heavy luggage up the stairs to a wonderful suite. The building is old and the floors abit uneven, as you would expect from a building of this era. But the baths were vintage with walk in hsowers and well appointed. The view of the grounds from every window,filling the room with light. A pleasure to spend time in. After returning to the hotel the first evening, we met the proprietress, Linda Henkleman, who is sophistocated and clearly well travelled and who could not have been nicer or more helpful! We ate two fantastic dinners in their restaurant. The food is memorable :well prepared and presented, with delicious choices; the staff is accommodating and helpful. At breakfast the room is much quieter and the wait staff is friendly and discreet...no idle chatter that can disrupt the morning calm, but right at your elbow if you need anything. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and look forward to returning.
My wife and I stayed here just for one night as we were seeing friends in nearby Westport. The house is situated in a beautiful area of Greenwich. We did not eat dinner at the restaurant which is supposed to be very good so have no opinion about that. I did eat breakfast all alone at 7am though and it was very nice. Beautiful view over the garden, very smart service. We had booked what I think was called the Grand Suite (room 135 on the top floor) at USD569 per night. Must say, other than the very cool (to us at least) Moroccan style bathroom with skylight and two shower heads in one large standup shower, the room was disappointing and weirdly decorated. Lots of very bright red, fake plants and garish other colors in a house that is overall sedate, old and historical. Just inconsistent. We had 5 or 6 windows but all had ugly views to walls, overlooking utilities or back into staff equipment/kitchen staging areas. Not very nice. My recommendation would be to go for a meal, whEther that's breakfast or dinner and walk around the garden and perhaps drive around the area (as we did) which reeks of money and history but not thinking that staying in the rooms is so great. See my photos of garden and some of room ....
Beautiful inn on 3 acres a short drive from downtown Greenwich. Room was lovely. Dinner was fantastic - the complimentary duck roll, the sweetbreads appetizer, the smoked salmon appetizer, the sword fish special and the filet mignon special with foie gras were all heavenly. Perfect for a romantic get-away!!
