The Stanton House Inn Experience, in Pictures
You can read all about the experience of staying here, but a picture or two will do much better justice.
Below are a few of our favorite images that best describe the experience of staying with us.
It’s not surprising that Connecticut is often overlooked.
Consider what Connecticut is wedged between. Two thriving metropolises surround it: New York City and Boston. Massachusetts and New York State are known for being culturally and historically significant, and major destinations themselves.
And then, there’s Connecticut. We’re so often disregarded, that even locals downplay their home state. Many head-off to other parts of the country as adults.
And Quentin Pearson, Jr, the founder of Stanton House Inn, and his family have been no different for generations. We may grow-up here, but we go off exploring the wider world.
That said, we usually come back.
Because both Greenwich and Connecticut have so much more to offer residents and visitors than many might realize.
And when we do, we come back to the same house that has been in our family for generations: Stanton House Inn. I have lived and played here as a child, as did my father before me.
Since 1985, Stanton House Inn has introduced visitors to the side of Greenwich and Connecticut that’s often overlooked. And our family business has weathered the ups and downs of our community and economy through the decades.
But as hotels, and now vacation rentals, became more available in the area, we started to lose our way. We knew we weren’t like the chain and luxury hotels growing-up around us. And for a while, we started to feel lost in the increasingly competitive market of our area.
Only recently did we understand that what makes us different is also what makes us so unique. Guests of Stanton House Inn get the benefits of both hotels and vacation rentals without the drawbacks.
For example, guests enjoy the privacy lacking in a vacation rental while avoiding the often cold, generic feeling of hotel rooms.
One of the best parts of staying here is of course the house. First built in 1843, the Seaman-Brush house (its official name) still has much of its historic charm. The greensward surrounding Stanton House Inn offers a relaxed and calming atmosphere to match the interior. And as Greenwich continues to develop, this historic home and green space grow more and more special.
And best of all, our small team of 7 loves Connecticut (and hosting guests) as much as the Pearsons! Staying with us is an intimate introduction to our community that you simply can’t get staying anywhere else. And we’re delighted to introduce you to the long list of attractions and activities in Greenwich and throughout the state.
We hope you take the time to learn more, and plan a trip to rediscover your love of Connecticut.
