The Starbuck Inn Bed & Breakfast in Kent, Connecticut is a gracious Colonial built by a local Kent family, and run as a B & B for the past fifteen years. A top-to-bottom renovation during the Spring of 2003 gave the house newly installed central air-conditioning, new furnishings, appointments and décor. Each of our six guest rooms has a custom-built armoire, cable TV, telephone and high-speed broadband ports, Frette linens and towels, "pillow top" mattresses, and private baths. We emphasize physical and emotional comfort, the lost art of lounging around, and excellent food.
Borrowing from English B&B tradition, High Tea is served at 4 PM in the afternoon. Legend has it that the Duchess of Bedford (1788-1861) complained of a lack of energy in the afternoons and instituted a "high tea" featuring light fare such as crumpets, scones, crust-less sandwiches and pates to keep her going until dinner.
