Take a tour of our relaxing bed and breakfast pool and gardens
The former estate of the Seaman-Brush House (the official name of the Stanton House Inn) was an expansive homestead in the 1700s.
Since then, it has slowly shrunk to its current two-acre stretch of gardens in downtown Greenwich, Connecticut.
Today, lovingly-tended garden beds surround those 2-acres feature manicured lawns.
Visitors are welcome to wander the grounds and admire the tall trees endemic to New England.
The more formal beds in the front of Stanton House Inn give way to more natural plantings behind our romantic Connecticut bed and breakfast inn. The outdoor areas area such a major draw to our Select Registry property.
Seasonal Outdoor Pool
Guests very much enjoy our brief yet glorious Connecticut summer in the outdoor pool. Our Connecticut bed and breakfast inn is the only place to stay in Greenwich with an outdoor pool near Greenwich Avenue. Our pool is quiet and private and is for the exclusive use of guests on overnight getaways in CT at Stanton House Inn.
There are plenty of lounge chairs surrounding the pool for guest use in the summer. The lounge chairs can easily be moved either into the sun or under the shade of the trees overhanging the swimming pool area. Guests often praise that ours is one of the most immaculate pools they’ve ever used!
Guest rooms and suites by the pool
A few guest rooms and suites overlook the pool. Others are within easy reach, on the ground floor level of Stanton House Inn. They’re the perfect spot for relaxing before a morning dip, or an afternoon by the pool. And one even has a walk-out private balcony with views of the pool.
And if you’d rather luxuriate in your own tub, our two suites with views of the pool both feature unique tubs:
- The Brush Suite has a clawfoot tub in the suite
- The Sackett Suite features a jetted tub in the suite

To the South of our bed and breakfast inn sits the brick patio and pool. We encourage guests to relax at the patio tables and chairs during warmer parts of the year. Our tables are perfect for enjoying breakfast, or reading a book and admire the gardens. Our patio comfortably accommodates up to 50 people for functions.
Elegant and impressive beech trees used to flank the south of the mansion, planted when the mansion was first constructed. The trees recently came down for safety reasons.
The patio is where we serve afternoon tea in the warmer months of the year.
Besides our beautiful gardens, we also provide off-street free parking for guests to our Greenwich bed and breakfast. Our facilities allow us to offer space for one car per guest room.
The estate at Stanton House Inn slopes downhill from Maple Avenue to the ruins of a former party pavilion. The back lawns and gardens of our historic Connecticut bed and breakfast inn are a wonderful place to picnic or read a book in the grass under the shade of the maple trees.
Interspersed among the flower beds and shrubs are our vegetables and fruit trees.
While exploring, you’ll find dwarf fruit trees, kiwi vines, and fruit shrubs like currants and gooseberries. We follow the permaculture practice of creating self-sustaining food forests.
We interplant food and wildlife plants among the flowers, common plants include:
- garlic chives
- Egyptian walking onions
- bronze fennel
- lemon balm
