Find an excuse to visit this Inn. We stay in B&Bs all the time, and this is the most gracious and among the most beautiful. Plus, the hosts are excellent chefs! We have stayed there twice for family funerals. Now, we're hoping for a family wedding so we will have an excuse to go back. Ann and Marty Mitchell Rye,... More

And that's just saying a little. Spenser on Main is a beautiful Victorian house niched in Suffield, CT. Seeing the house for the first time really left a strong impression on me: you really feel like you are going back in time as you step in this colorful, clean and welcoming house. Etienne and Caroline will definitely make sure you... More

You've stayed in B&Bs before, right? Not like this one. This house is a magic mansion, full of history of a bygone era. The books, photographs, furniture - everything has been meticulously preserved to create a warm, elegant home. Spencer-on-Main is a most interesting and agreeable place. From the fresh flowers in our room, to the comfortable four poster bed,... More

"Spencer on Main", built by ancestors of the owner over a hundred years ago, is furnished in exceptional antiques acquired by the families over many years, yet is comfortable and alive. Our room had an exquisite canopy bed surrounded by sophisticated decor. Our bathroom was newly renovated and pristine, designed with its own special style but also compatible with the... More

What more can we say than what everyone else has said? Everything was wonderful - the suite, the beautiful inn, the delicious breakfasts, and Etienne's and Caroline's warm hospitality. We had an absolutely lovely weekend.

We stayed at Spencer on Main earlier in July. The house was beautiful. It has an authentic feel as it is furnished with things from many generations of the same family who have occupied it. Yet it feels comfortable and welcoming.The hosts were gracious and friendly, particularly in light of a misunderstanding as to the actual day of our arrival.... More

It was good fortune to book a night in Aunt Clara's room at Spencer on Main. Etienne and Caroline made me feel like family. I came and went as if I lived there. Everything was first rate, and Etienne knows how to treat you at the breakfast table. I strongly recommend the Spencer House if you plan to stay in... More

We were so fortunate to find this B and B. On-line it looked amazing. The real-thing surpassed our expectations. Beautiful house. Caroline and Etienne are wonderfully gracious, interesting, and warm inn-keepers. We three sisters held our reunion in Delices De La Nuit suite. I cannot imagine a more lovely place for a relaxed evening. Spacious, beautiful appointed room. This is... More
