From its creaky wooden floors and venerable ancestor paintings to its traditional New England setting and antique canopy beds, the Silvermine Tavern is everything a country inn should be, warm, friendly, inviting - and brimming with charm. You can't build a country inn with character like ours. You have to give it time. And time - 200 history-making years of it - is what has made the Silvermine Tavern a place so special you won't want to leave. If ever there were a perfect setting, it's here on the banks of the Silvermine River. Nestled by the waterfall of a tranquil mill pond, the Tavern serves its guests on of the most soothing and serene views in Connecticut.
