Eileen Sottile purchased The Tiny Tiffany Farmhouse in 2016. Her single-minded goal was to create a nurturing refuge for weary executives, happy vacationers and brides-to-be in search of a fully customized bridal experience.



Eileen Sottile

No stranger to the drain of the business world, Eileen Sottile herself was an overtaxed jet-setting executive who found herself on the brink of collapse. After taking time to listen to her body and reground, she committed her life to creating soothing places dedicated to wellness and self-discovery.






A community cornerstone – having served as a general store in 1790, the town’s very first pharmacy in 1877, and later a soda fountain where townspeople would gather. Now, this historic building has been lovingly repurposed into an elegant Bed & Breakfast with hints of Europe throughout. Three guest rooms have been entirely renewed – featuring four-poster beds with luxurious Italian linens, modern oversized showers redone in sparkling subway tile, and gas fireplaces. As a nod to the historic soda counter that once drew crowds, today’s patrons are tempted by Italian gelato, made daily on the premises, as well as espresso and cappuccino in the onsite Caffé Marche.


Authentically Italian

A tiny slice of Italy, in Old Saybrook. Located in The James Pharmacy Bed & Breakfast and Gelateria – we serve the simple recipes and fresh flavors of the Marche region. Palate-pleasers like thin-crust pizza, handmade pasta and gelato (made fresh daily!) are always on the menu, and daily specials will keep travelers and locals coming back for more. Join us for breakfast or lunch – BYOB is encouraged.


A quintessential New England experience

Built in 1746 – this Colonial inn allows guests to step back in time, with all the comforts of today. With wide-planked floor boards, candlelit breakfast and a fireplace in every room, you’ll feel transported to another era, but with the comforts of today: like flat-panel TVs, whirlpool tubs and air conditioning. Join us for a romantic getaway… then step next door and treat your palate to the flavors of Eastern Italy.
