Silvermine, CT


Andy, Marsha, and Nikki Glazer


“A Haven of Refuge”, as famously coined by artist and former owner, Frank Hutchens, who co-founded the Silvermine Artists Guild in 1922.

GrayBarns on the Silvermine River is the classic American Inn, with a strong heritage and history. Reimagined through design, it’s the idyllic New England getaway.

Once very popular as a village meeting place, Graybarns also served as an artist outpost, and stagecoach stop from the 17th century to present time.What is now GrayBarns on the Silvermine River began as a small textile factory at the turn of the 19th century. It became a speakeasy during the 1920s before legitimizing itself after the end of Prohibition. It thrived throughout the 1960s as a classic country inn, hosting movie stars like Elizabeth Taylor and Spencer Tracey. Now, it’s been reimagined by the Glazer family.

True to its history, GrayBarns on the Silvermine River has remained the picturesque setting to unite city slickers, international travelers and the local community over food and libations, relaxation and leisure.
