Location, Location Location!
The Elias Carter Bed and Breakfast is located just steps away from the world famous Brimfield Antique Flea Markets, and only minutes away from Old Sturbridge Village, antique stores and many fine restaurants in the greater Brimfield area. And a more lovely area of the world you'd be hard pressed to find!
Private Baths in Every Room
One of the charms of older New England homes - that have been turned into B&B's - is that the original character of the home often remains in tact. The Elias Carter House manages to do just that AND offers each guest a private bath in every room! It's the best of both worlds.
The common areas of the Elias Carter House include a large octagonal conservatory/sunroom with twelve floor to ceiling windows and a fireplace. The room overlooks the Town Common and was added on to our historic home in the 1980s as part of a “This Old House” episode.
Our sunroom (or conservatory) offers a full view of the Brimfield Common. Comfortable chairs and sofas offer seating to visit with friends, fellow guests, enjoy a cold or hot drink, show off your antique purchases, watch TV, or relax and play board games.
Our adjacent dining room offers complimentary water or coffee as well as the use of a small refrigerator and microwave. A full home cooked breakfast is served daily with organic ingredients from our large vegetable and herb gardens as well as local suppliers. Dietary restrictions or personal preferences can be accommodated with prior notice. During Brimfield Antique Show weeks, our guests often prefer a dawn departure and will assemble a to-go bag with snacks and homemade goods.
In season, enjoy the outdoors on our brick patio which seats 10-12 guests. Dine outside, enjoy a cocktail, or upon request we will prepare a fire in the fire pit for additional comfort.
