Let us introduce ourselves. We are Maureen and Clifford Jones, the proprietors of The Rooster Tail Inn, Warren, Connecticut.

For us, the Rooster Tail Inn has been a life long dream. For over 30 years, we've built fine homes throughout Connecticut. In that time, we've developed a reputation for quality construction, ingenious use of space and comfortable, visually appealing design. But more importantly after years of client contact, we believe we have come to understand what constitutes the perfect home away from home for those seeking to visit, explore and rest for awhile in beautiful Litchfield County, CT.

Sitting Room

Our dream of an inn might have become a reality almost anywhere, but we were highly selective. Our ideal location was a rural setting, but not too far removed from nearby towns, outdoor activities, events, restaurants, museums, schools and shops that so define Litchfield County. We imaged an intimate atmosphere, warm and homey but juxtaposed with luxurious appointments. We wanted an interior with common spaces that would accommodate groups but would also allow for intimate spots for individual reflection. In our dream, out of every window of our ideal inn, we imagined picturesque views of the first light of dawn and the last glorious colors of the evening sunset.

In 2008, we were thrilled to find our perfect location when a colonial residence, circa 1772, with two magnificent barns, became available for sale. Located in the classic New England hamlet of Warren, CT, with its unique charm and rural solitude, just minutes from the diverse offerings of greater Litchfield County, we purchased this property and began an extensive renovation/ remodeling project on the main house. Over the past 10 months, we've put every bit of our knowledge and expertise into creating a level of quality, comfort and service which competes with, not only the finest inns, but with the best accommodations anywhere.


The Rooster Tail Inn is comprised of six suites, five upstairs and one on the main floor, each with its own unique decor and ambience which includes quality upholstered furnishings, hand crafted cabinetry, and the most comfortable, luxuriously appointed king sized beds imaginable. Each suite also has its own spa quality bathroom including heated floors, chromo therapy tubs, body and rain showers, heated towel bars and Neorest toilets (with heated seats and bidets). Modern conveniences include docking stations for MP3 players , wireless earphones, wireless internet service and state of the art flat screen high definition televisions. An exercise room for daily workouts includes a sauna and steam room. A trainer is on staff and small group classes can be arranged upon request. Suite rates include a delicious morning breakfast and a delightful afternoon tasting.

Tavern Room

Guests have full access to the lovely appointed common room which includes a private library, gaming table and a welcoming fireplace. Alternatively, guests may choose to relax in our casual tavern room or in the sun drenched dining room, where our dream of sunsets or sunrises are clearly visible for all to admire. The landscaped grounds, nestled among the hills of Litchfield and bordered on the east by the scenic Shepaug River, include a picturesque pond, bluestone patios and an outdoor fireplace.

Besides the six suite accommodations, the Rooster Tail Inn, with its professionally equipped kitchen and service facilities comfortably accommodates seminars, conferences and other specialty events. The entire Inn with all six suites can be reserved for personal events such as anniversaries, bridal showers, seasonal parties or other family events.
