The Falls Village Inn. A Litchfield County Landmark.
Built in 1834, Restored in 2010, a Bunny Williams Design
33 Railroad Street, the
heart of Falls Village
for more than 175 years.
The Falls Village Inn is the anchor that defines the character of this little slice of paradise. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979, the Falls Village District is 70 acres, the result of a “building boom” in the middle of the 19th century that came thanks to the Housatonic Railroad; it made the village one of its station stops in the early 1840s.
The Falls Village Inn itself was built more than 175 years ago. As reported by the Litchfield County Times, the Inn has “helped shape Falls Village’s history in more ways than one.” Not only are there tales of it once being home to a brothel, but a ghostly presence has been claimed over the years. Twice in its history the inn caught fire, and it was after the second one that the town decided to charter, in 1924, a volunteer fire department – and then built it right next door.
Oh, are you wondering where the “Falls” in Falls Village came from? Within walking distance of the Inn, just upstream from the steel bridge over the Housatonic River, is a stunning set of waterfalls. We hope you take some time to see the natural wonder that inspired the name of the town.
And the Falls Village Inn…
Ravishing rooms designed by Bunny Williams.
Author of the widely acclaimed Affair with a House, Bunny Williams has been designing and decorating for clients around the world since the mid-1960s. As the New York Times has written, her designs always account for “a place to put your feet up and your drink down. It’s a lifestyle that should look and feel old-fashioned — yet manages not to.”
We are proud to have secured the talents of Ms. Williams to create your room here at the Falls Village Inn. A Bunny Williams suite is designed to be a comfortable, sophisticated background for a rich, fulfilling life.

Choose to dine inside or al fresco on our old-time porch. We’ve designed the eatery at Falls Village Inn to be romantically intimate yet roomy enough for large parties.

The Tap Room
Where the locals go
Intimate and comfortable. Draught ales, lagers and pilsners, reasonably priced. A feel that honors not only Falls Village, but also that of Lime Rock Park, our famous neighbor.
The “bar menu” at the Tap Room is what you want, and expect, from a comfortable, familiar tap room. Good portions and exceptionally flavorful. Perfect burgers. Fries that can stand alone as a meal. Sandwiches that you would make on a midnight raid to the fridge.
But we also want you to expect the unexpected: Clam chowder, chicken pot pies, crab cakes, grilled steaks and more.
We also fully expect you to peruse the walls, admiring our little tribute to nearby Lime Rock, one of the world’s finest race tracks. It has an enviable history, and the Tap Room is quickly becoming the hangout for local racers (yes, many of them legends), so we hope you enjoy our humble salutation.
When you open the door to the Tap Room, it’ll feel like coming home…
