A Conneticut Bed and Breakfast

Our ancestors settled here in 1635 from Heavitree, England, thus the name.  We are one of the few and longest living farms to continue in the founder’s name “Geer”. The Heavitree is an original 18th Century building that was saved and moved to its current location suiting its surroundings, a 140+ acre farm started by their ancestors in 1700.

“The house should suit the land, and the furnishings should suit the house”.

The original structure was a tavern located in Rhode Island, which had plans to be destroyed to make way for new construction.  At this time, the owner Charlotte Geer was looking for an early farm house to compliment her families’ historic farm land.  This tavern is the treasure that was sought after for two years. 

When you walk through the doors you are taken back in time yet with all the modern amenities of today.  There are twelve rooms including four sleeping chambers (three of which have private bathrooms), central air, Wi-fi and large rooms for private parties. Our spacious quarters consist of the unique 18th century Parlor, Dining Room, Keeping Room, Tap Room (which is part of the downstairs tavern) and the addition of The Great Room – completing the 4,780 sq. ft. farmhouse. Stroll the vast lawns, fields, gardens and take in the beautiful views. The expansive grounds are private and offer beautiful vistas.
