The West Lane Inn, built in 1849, combines the charm of an intimate country inn with many conveniences of a hotel. For those seeking a special getaway, we are situated in the historic district of Ridgefield, CT. One of New England’s most scenic colonial towns, Ridgefield is located in Fairfield County only 1 hour and 15 minutes north of New York City. To quote from Frommer’s guide, “no town in Connecticut has a grander, more imposing main street, impressive any time of the year, the town is nonetheless a true evocation of the New England character, a hint of Vermont ”.
With a graceful and welcoming entrance, guests are invited to enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast with an optional A La Carté menu served on the terrace or in our cozy breakfast room. Our 18 rooms are appointed with either one or two queen beds, or a king bed. Each room has air conditioning, full private bath with heated towel rack and hair dryer. In addition to the above, iron, ironing board, satellite TV, refrigerator, free WiFi and telephone are also provided. Laundry and dry cleaning service are available. If you need a crib or cot please let us know before you check in. We are a non smoking Inn and pets are not permitted.
