Mountain View Inn

Our Inn


From the moment you enter Norfolk with its distinctive village green, bell towers and picture postcard surroundings, you'll feel like you're home. Pristine landscapes and gardens, historic homes and winding roads invite you to return to a much gentler time.

Here on a state designated scenic road, the elegantly restored Mountain View Inn awaits you. An historic inn, Mountain View has been a Norfolk, CT tradition for over 50 years. In every season, Mountain View offers a picturesque natural setting for experiencing life's most special moments. We are happy to welcome you and your guests to our country home for your Romantic Getaway, Business Meeting or Personal Retreat any time of the year.

Venture across the road to the world renowned Yale University Summer Music Festival, where great classical artists perform wonderful chamber music. Take a scenic 20 minute drive to Music Mountain where a diverse musical program enlivens the hills. Or enjoy nearby road racing at Lime Rock Park nestled in a picturesque setting in the Housatonic Valley.

Venture north from of our Inn and you'll find Tanglewood, the Norman Rockwell Museum, galleries and other cultural and historical attractions. And if you prefer to enjoy an exceptional hike in the village of Norfolk, you'll discover that over 80% of our land is forever preserved in its pristine, natural state. Visit us for a Romantic Weekend, a Personal Retreat or Girlfriends’ Getaway. Whatever brings you here, we’ll help you plan an exceptional stay at Mountain View Inn.


Your Innkeepers,
Dean & Jean Marie Johnson


While at Mountain View you may choose to stroll our spacious grounds and winding roads or enjoy a book fireside. Unwind by swinging under our 200 year old Sugar Maple or simply relax on our porches and our Victorian courtyard. As the sun goes down at the end of the day, savor the quiet country nights, no matter what the season.

During your stay, we invite you to visit the Art Gallery which includes original paintings and giclee prints by Dean Johnson and other artists.
