B&B Friday (5/14/10) (P.S.- I'm back!)

Long time no see, everyone...
I'm back again!
Finals are finally over, my skin isn't breaking out
into rashes, nor do I feel like my head is imploding anymore--

Summer has begun!

I can't believe my trip is coming up in exactly four weeks, either!
I don't even think I'm emotionally prepared enough yet 
to face my equivalence to paradise!

And speaking of which, in a couple of days I'll be having a
wonderful Cape Cod Summer Giveaway here,
so those of you who live in the Massachusetts area
could be in for a delicious (hint-hint) treat! ;)

Now, without further ado, I give you this week's B&B's:

(Granby, CT)

"Magnificent sugar maple trees lead your way to the Dutch Iris Inn, a beautiful 1812 home located in the historic district of Granby, Connecticut, in the heart of the Farmington River Valley. We are open year-round, in an idyllic location near Hartford CT and Springfield MA, and an easy drive to the Litchfield Hills and Berkshire Mountains. Only three hours from New York City, two hours from Boston, and a short hop to many New England attractions, our central location makes day tripping easy.
From the moment you arrive at our Inn, you will discover gracious hospitality, relaxation and comfort. Stroll our grounds and gardens, sit on the porch swing and sip a cup of tea or glass of wine, curl up in front of the living room fireplace with a good book, or settle into your beautifully designed guest room. Our Inn offers modern conveniences, and each of our six guest rooms has a private bath, with jet tubs and fireplaces in select rooms. After a peaceful night’s sleep, you will awaken to the aroma of a scrumptious breakfast, prepared with you in mind."

Rates: $109-159

(Plymouth, NH)

"Escape to the warmth, hospitality and good cheer of the Federal House Inn of New Hampshire. We are centrally located between the Lakes and White Mountains Regions in Plymouth, New Hampshire and just minutes from Plymouth State University, Holderness School and over a dozen Summer Camps.
Built in 1835, our 4 star inn offers luxury guest rooms with queen size beds, private baths and air conditioning as well as featuring 300 thread count linens, plush towels and robes, Bose radio alarm clocks, chocolates on your pillow (!) and a basket of eco-friendly toiletries.
In the Gathering Room, we offer our renowned Gourmet Breakfasts and you can even enjoy Dinners by Request, warmed by the ambiance of our antique coal/wood-burning stove. The Library is a relaxing place to chat with fellow travelers, play a game, watch television or DVD’s. And, by the way, the whole house has Wireless Internet (WiFi)!
An outdoor heated spa, two landscaped acres, charming brick patio, complimentary hospitality bar, and afternoon/evening snacks complete the experience. The Federal House Inn is truly that special place you've been looking for in New Hampshire."

Rates: $109-189

(Lee, MA)

"The inn is situated on a park-like 6-acre Massachusetts estate close to the historic town of Lee. It is near Stockbridge (2 miles), Lenox (Lee is 10 minutes to Tanglewood using our no traffic short cut) and Great Barrington. Applegate has a unique location - a country estate, beset with horse farms, with only a half mile walk to downtown Lee. We pride ourselves in creating a tranquil atmosphere that allows all guests to create memories that will be treasured for years to come. The inn's elegant rooms, magnificent gardens, heated swimming pool and friendly staff promote true relaxation at our bed and breakfast."
