It is a luxury to live in America, and in the spirit of celebrating America’s birthday, we are sharing with you some of the most quintessential places and people we have experienced in our recent travels to our clients marketplaces.  The definition for quintessential: is representing the most perfect or typical example of a quality or class.  This is also in our opinion one of the facets which defines luxury.

Captain Stannard House

Country Inn in Westbrook, Connecticut

This is where we learned from Jim and Mary Brewster (the owners of this wonderful bed and breakfast), this sentence, “We cannot wait to spoil you”.  And they were true to their words.  If you read our blog, you probably saw   the picture of the tasty brownies treats on the dresser.  Breakfasts were delicious, and the common areas comfortable and inviting.  The House has been lovingly restored, and the work was done by an architect who specializes in restoring and building homes that are a 100 years old. 

After dinner, we spent the evenings in the living room on comfortable leather couches catching up with our correspondence.  We felt completely at home.  The Stannard Inn is located one block from the beach, where the Atlantic meets the river.  We came in strangers and we left as friends, and that is one of America’s luxury traits—warm and welcoming people.  We are looking forward to our next visit.

When you have to leave the comforts of your own home to travel, it sounds as if the Stannard Inn is the place to stay. 

Thanks for the great description of how well you were treated!

Looks like a great place to stay and be spoiled.  Debbie told me yesterday she's ready for a few down days of being pampered.  Maybe you have given me a light bulb moment :)

Nothing like being spoiled!  We so seldom get treated that way in our daily life that it doesn't take much to make a huge impact!  Sounds like Jim and Mary have it down to a science!

Hi Ron & Alexandra - When I had my commercial brokerage, B&B's were a specialty - I once had 11 of them listed, all in Colorado. They were all unique and wonderful, and each made personalized luxury a priority. Andf they were really, really hard to sell.

Louise,

We all love being spoiled, and it was even more meaningful as we were there to work.

Roy,

You are welcome, we love sharing our finds with everyone we know.

Suzanne,

I think the people you meet make all the difference in the world.

John,

I am glad I did, and I know how hard Debbie works and helps you out...I hope you take her somewhere wonderful. She deserves it.

Sharon,

They sure do, and we appreciated it so much, we are letting all of you know.

Rebecca,

It is, and we highly recommend it.

Sharon,

We loved that too, the whole place was comfortable and relaxing to be in.

Dick,

We had a client who had many B &B lisitings.  They hard to sell.  I think certain areas of the country are more accepting of this type of accomodations than others.  For the people who run them, it has to be a love affair with the idea. 

Don,

We look for that, as we have to also battle jet lag, (3hours EST), and keep up with everything at home, and those in Mountain Time, and those in Hawaii.  A

Kathy,

I bet you do, and you probably serve more than breakfast, and with your culinary skills, I bet people don't want to leave. A

The Stannard Inn sounds like home away from home, Alexandra, and would be my choice too.
