We came here to celebrate my 29th birthday and had an amazing visit! The home is beautiful and the town is charming. Thank you for making our stay as warm and welcoming as could be.
Jolette and Johnny, June 2012

We are here to celebrate Father’s Day weekend. The inn is superb. The house has a fascinating history and is set on a beautiful property. We loved the Gables for our family and young daughter. The bed was comfortable with luxurious sheets. Our hosts were kind, welcoming and informative about the local interests. We look forward to returning soon.
Krystn, June 2012

What a wonderful place you have here. I wish we were staying longer (maybe next time). Do not change a thing as this is by far in my top 5 B & B’s. Thank+ you very much.
Charles

Love ambiance – enjoyed our stay very much. Cozy room with very comfortable bed. Great food, especially the fresh fruit and home backed scones! Thank you.

Thank you for making our Mother’s Day excursion so special. One of the best B & B experiences we have had – you made us feel right at home.
Lori and Lynda, Massachusetts

As newcomers to Woodbury it was such a delight to discover your wonderful home and learn so much about local history, life and attractions. We look forward to being near neighbors! Thank you for a delightful stay!
Caroline and Anne, Woodbury Connecticut

What a wonderful find! Beautiful room, beautiful setting, wonderful hosts. We were in the area for an AMC hike in Kent and needed a bed and breakfast for the night. This was absolutely perfect!
Mary and Art, Hamden CT

We knew from the moment we discovered your website that it was a good fit for our fore-some because of your name, “Cornucopia”. The entire experience here – good food; friendly, interesting innkeepers; beautiful ambiance; surprisingly varied discoveries nearby – was serendipity! Thank you so much!
Joyce, Nancy, Mary, and Dee, March 2012

Love, love, love your place! You two are so welcoming and the care and pride you have in your B & B/ home comes through in everything.
Sarah, Coupeville Washington

Thank you for a wonderful stay – a comfortable and cozy room, warm hospitality and delicious food. What a wonderful way to spend our wedding anniversary. The husband will get lots of points for this surprise (you two definitely get partial credit, too)! We hope you much success and happiness as you continue to welcome people into your lovely home.
Mawk and July, January 2012

Thank you very much for the beautiful stay, the excellent breakfast (pumpkin waffles) and the cozy room. I will definitely come back again!
Irene, Italy, November 2011

I was feeling a little “down” after leaving our son in Manhattan. We arrived here and were welcomed by Christine and taken to our delightful, comfortable room, where we slept like logs in soft sheets. We have had a beautiful weekend and explored the area, so beautiful. We very much enjoyed talking to both Christine and Ed who are wonderful hosts. The atmosphere is calm and peaceful. Breakfasts have been delicious. I loved looking at the photo albums. Thank you both for a short but sweet stay.
Joaquin and Sheile, San Autonio Texas, October 2011

We have really enjoyed our stay with you. Arriving jet lagged and travel weary we received a lovely welcome and felt at home immediately. The accommodation is beautiful and historic and the beds are very comfy. The boys loved the hammock (not sure the hammock loved them) and running off excess energy in the back garden and pool. Fab – all we needed and more.
Frankie, Jason, Natty, Ethan, and Will, Brighouse, West Yorkshire UK August 2011

Thank you so much for the wonderful hospitality! From the amazing breakfasts, to the thoughtful conversations we enjoyed every minute of our stay at Cornucopia. We’ll be back, but until then be well and best of luck for the rest of the season.
Ian and Kimberly August 2011

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your beautiful Cornucopia – the house is both historic and welcoming and so comfortable. We felt we were staying with friends – as we rushed about to organize and hang an exhibition of my paintings at the Roxbury Library. Ed jumped in when we needed a hand and Christine was incredibly supportive. And the breakfasts – home backed scones, blueberry pancakes and heaps of fruit – this was a very special stay for us. Thank you!
Risa and Doug, NYC August 2011

 

Thank you so much for your gracious hospitality. Staying in your lovely home felt like being with family in all the best sense of that experience. I will definitely be back and recommend more of our Taft family stay with you as well..
Colleen, Jakarta, Indonesia; February 2011

Thanks so much for the "Northern" hospitality. We will be back. Accommodations are first rate. Can't wait to see the grounds after the spring thaw. (Innkeeper's note: NEITHER CAN WE!)
Keith and Laura, McLean, VA - February 2011

What a wonderful weekend! We enjoyed every minute - you thought of everything and we wanted fo rnothing. We felt so comfortable, welcomed and relaxed. We will b back. Thank you for making this such a wonderful 10th Anniversary.
Laurel and Chris, Wethersfield, CT; January 2011

Tom and I had a most stimulating and gratifying stay at your inn. It was so much fun getting to know you and the fascinating little town. Of course, the breakfast was great and our bed was heavenly. You pay attention to to every detail in your inn, which means a lot to us (well, me especially).
Christine and Tom,New Britain, CT April 2010

Thank you for the excellent stay. It was very relaxig and for our first stay in a Bed and Breakfast, you truly set a high bar by which all future B&B visits shall be measured. We had a fabulous stay and cannot thank you for your warm hospitality.
Susan and Jay, April, 2010

Thank you for your hospitality. EVerything was wonderful: the rooms, the food, the company. We loved hearing all of the stories about the local area. You helped me find the perfect place to paint.
Stephan, Allison and Don

All that Shawn and Amy told us about this lovely b and b was true. While we were only here one evening, we loved everything about it! Thanks for the hospitality.
Bev and Greg, Trenton, NJ

You helped make our wedding weekend a lovely experience.
Sharron and peter, May 2010

This is the house for a perfect weekend to enjo the excellent breakfast, the entertaining conversation, and the charming atmospher of the house and gardens. What a lovely Easter Sunday,
Kluas and Patricia, Boson, April 2010

It's not just becaue the accommodations are wonderful (because they are)...
It's not just because the food is fabulous(because it is)...
It's not just because of your recommendations for dining/shopping/points of interest (which always seems to be the best)...
It's the feeling that you are just having a glass of wine with some old friends you haven't seen in a while (because you are). Love,

Claudia and Lou, 1/10/10 (3rd time they have been at the Cornucopia at Oldfield)

Thank you for sharing your most gracious home with us, we felt a part of your family and the warmth of your kindness will always be a special part of our memories here in Southbury. I'm glad our first B&B experience was here.
Nancy and Rick, New Mexico, December 2009

Thank you so much for your warm hospitality, from the moment we arrived we felt warm and invited. This is definitely a place we will return to and celebrate many more joyous holiday seasons.
Barbara and Joel, December 2009

f these walls could speak, I would hear resounding thank yous for the care you have taken to preserve and respect the years of laughter and love of the Moseley's and all who have walked these floors. Your hospitality is surpassed by none in our experience with B&B's.

We loved our wonderful two-day stay at Cornucopia; wish it could have been longer. Christine and Ed's warmth and welcoming manner make this the best B&B experience we have ever had. Thank you so much.
Andy and Joan, October 2009

Thank you so much for a wonderful long weekend of hiking, leef-peeping and wineries. Two years in a row your B&B has been a much needed, relaxing retreat for us. Breakfast was fantastic & the conversation was nice. Can't wait to come back!
Amy and Shawn, October 2009

What a huge blessing this has been for us. We have needed a quiet time away and this was perfect! We felt totally pampered! Thank you for everything!

So great to encounter people who genuinely enjoy people, good food, hard work and extend such warm hospitality. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to spend time here again.

The most perfect B&B. Warm hospitality, great company, comfie home, beautiful pool and surroundings, great bird shows, delicious food, but most importantly lovely people - Christine and Ed! Thank you for a home away from home!
Stephanie and Sophie, WV and NJ, August 2009

As a professional traveler, its quite nice to stray from the sterile, boxed environment of the chain hotels. This B&B satisfied all the comfort, calm and relaxing needs fo the weary. The food is superb, the host Christine is precious and the SHEETS - dreamy. I will return.
Beth, Texas, August 2009

Fantastic stay. Really enjoyed the room and the downstairs area. Great Breakfast. Good News Cafe was a big surprise - world class French restaurant in Woodbury - who would have thought! Thank you.

A poem from one of our guests:
The Cornucopia B&B
A perfect place to see
Delightful hospitality
And warm conviviality.
The Gable room was very cozy
And easy to be dozee
Breakfast - a real treat
More than enough to eat
We enjoyed our staff
And Will be back another day

Our third visit and as wonderful as always. We cherish our time with you. Our annual reintegration of our children from camp to civilization has become a looked-forward to family treat.
Jan, David, Molly, Eliza; August, 2008

An original poem from one of our guests - John, Verneuil-en-Bourbonnais, France January 2008
What is man and what is power?
All things pass away
The flutes are sprung, the harps unstrung
The songs of old are long unsung,
They had their day.
What are glory and loveliness?
All things pass away The shattered lute falls to the floor,
The star of love is no more.
They had their day.
Now the jade terraces are still.
The Autumn mists are drifting chill.
Cold and casual the moonlight falls Into the long-deserted halls.
Those that loved and reveled must
Long ago have fallen to dust.

And here is what his wife, Terry had to say: The taste, the warmth, the creativity - and I'm not just talking about the food but also the house and especially the hosts. Thank you for all of the above.

This has been a fabulous three days! The great accommodations are surpassed only by your hospitality. WE feel like you are old friends.
Mary and Jeff, Greenville, SC August 15, 2006

We are delighted to find this wonderful rest on our flying journey! Thanks to Ed for rescuing us at the airport - we're only sorry to have missed Christine. The house is beautiful, furnishings are lovely and I appreciate all of the extra touches of hospitality.
Sharon and Don (who were completing their goal of landing their airplane in every state in the Union) Torrance, CA August 5, 2006

We are already planning another visit... We also wanted to compliment you on your cooking. We know you joked that Christine's meals were better, but you (Ed) did an exceptional job on your own. Thanks again for all your kindness, time and care. It was nice to not only have nice accommodation, but to get to know you as well... Jared and Crystal Ohio. soon to be Tennessee August 3, 2006

Would you consider adopting us? We would love to live under your tender, loving care. This has been wonderful.

Thanks for making our visit so great..

What great hosts! Enthusiasm and smarts in running a charming inn. Kudos to you. P.S. Breakfast was great and the bed divine. We slept like logs.
Paulette and Mark July 2, 2006

Staying at the Cornucopia for phase II of TES training made a really good week absolutely wonderful.
MaryBeth, Williamsburg, VA June 23, 2006

Your inn is special. If I had more time I would be more poetic. Simply put ... nothing disappoints at the Cornucopia! All details are smashing. Micah and Rebecca June 18, 2006

Sincerely, Jennifer and Christopher Connecticut May 1, 2006

Cornucopia is everything we had hoped it would be, very comfortable, tastefully decorated, a fabulous breakfast and above all, both of you are gracious, wonderful hosts. Since our main reason for being here was to attend Grandparents day at Taft, your location and proximity to the school is excellent. It is a great pleasure and an honor to meet both of you!
Arthur & Natalia Erwinna, PA April 11, 2006

Mary and I have stayed at many inns but we have never enjoyed the whole experience more than at your inn. Each breakfast was delicious, the room was very comfortable and you made us feel like part of the family. We hope it won't be long before we return to the Cornucopia.

Dear Fred (our Yorkshire Terrier who was with us for the first two years of innkeeping), If your keepers treat you with at least one quarter of the attention and care they treat their guests with, you are one lucky dog! Our five night stay was magnificent. Beautiful home.
Rick, Becky and Regina, Phoenix, AZ 9/13/05

Your warmth and your kindness are overwhelming. I'm very grateful to know you both. Please stay in touch.
Karen and Bob Burlington, VT 9/9/05

Not the location; which was beautiful. Not the lodging; which was wonderful. Not the food; which was outstanding. But Ed and Christine, who were all of the above and more. Thank you.
Always, Harry 8/28/05

What an amazing 2-day escape. Your hospitality, with attention to every detail was warm and efficient. We particularly enjoyed our chats but the rest: exquisitely furnished home, inviting pool, and beautifully kept grounds made our visit so memorable that we both shall return with our husbands. Thank you so much,

Your accommodations on such short notice to create such a special night "Our Wedding Night" were above and beyond our wildest hopes or dreams! The parlor was beautiful for our wedding!

We had a wonderful weekend at the Cornucopia! The rooms were beautifully decorated, the food was delicious, and Christine and Ed made us feel at home! And...it was just a short trip from NYC. We look forward to many future visits. Thank you.
Rebecca, Steve, and Hannah Wilks New York City, NY USA - Wednesday, December 01, 2004

We had a wonderful time at the Cornucopia at Oldfield. The room was beautifully decorated with lots of light coming in from the windows and the fireplace made it feel so cozy and warm. The bed was as if you were sleeping on clouds. I sat out on the private balcony one day watching my son and my husband playing in the falling leaves and just enjoying the wonderful view. The food was delicious every morning, and I especially loved having fresh fruit each morning with my breakfast. The keeping room has a big fireplace and we looked forward to sitting by the fire with a cup of hot tea. The innkeepers are warm and welcoming. They made us feel like part of the family. They were so accommodating to our needs and wants. They gave us great information about what to do and where to eat. We also took a drive around the area and stopped by a Christmas Tree farm that was just down the street. Our visit to Southbury was one of the best vacations we have ever had and we will be returning again next year.
Tina, Edward and Nathaniel, Paget, Bermuda, November, 2004.
