Truthfully, all the reviews preceding this review, my own review you now read and I suspect those to come really could not fully describe or explain the magic that is The Inn at Ormsby Hill. If you manage to stay a while here, you will undoubtedly leave as we have, with memories that will last a lifetime. We were fortunate... More

Our stay was truly lovely and Diane & Yoshio are marvelous hosts. Sitting in deck chairs sipping a glass of wine at dusk with a view of the mountains; enjoying Diane's sumptuous breakfast with personalised touches like orange/honey butter or strolling through Diane's garden and maze were all part of a thoroughly relaxing stay. We were in the Gideon Ormsby... More

Best bed and breakfast I've ever been to!!!Great room, beautiful fireplace, great jacuzzi, delicious breakfast. A lot of amenities included, coffee, cookies, bottled water, etc. It was close to skiing and all the shops, including outlets. The couple was so welcoming, informative, we can't wait to go back =]

This beautiful inn is cozy, well appointed with modern amenities, yet still classic and colonial in touch. Rooms are comfortable and easy to pass a spare hour in. The back patio offers beautiful mountain views with comfortable furniture, so easy to grab a book and rocker and read to relax between excursions. Diane and Yoshio do everything to make your... More

We keep returning to The Inn at Ormsby Hill because Diane and Yoshio are welcoming, but give you space to be alone and enjoy their beautiful inn. The back porches and yard offer cozy and comfy places to enjoy the mountain view and relax. There is no fighting for the last cookie at tea time.

Diane and Yoshio run a superb colonial style B&B on the edge of Manchester,we drove up from Newport on our tour and were welcomed like old friends. The house is remarkable and the setting just wonderful. The room was first class, having travelled the world I have never had a room with a fireplace between the bedroom and bathroom.! Manchester...

We want to thank Diane & Yoshio for our memorable recent first stay at The Inn at Ormsby Hill. We can state without reserve that your beautifully appointed room accomodations, personal style of hospitality and making our stay very comfortable rival the very best Inns we have ever stayed in.

we selected Ormsby Hill via internet the night before. We were visiting from Australia and had only one night in Vermont. Manchester and Ormsby Hill were delightful, and we wished we had more time to spend there. I have recommended to my travel agent in Australia, and have already recommended to colleagues who are looking for a Vermont experience. Diane... More

From the time I first read their website to the final good buy from the owner, the experience was terrific. What a great location!! Lots of history (Robert Lincoln's home), many restaurants of high quality, excellent outdoor activities (hiking, kayaking, etc), and great shopping with all of the outlets in Manchester (Orvis, Loft, Bass, but to name a few).

Hosts were very accommodating. Location was perfect for hiking trails and outlet shopping. The room with the jacuzzi tub and fireplace was cozy. A little too warm for us, but we just opened a window. The grounds had a wonderful view of the mountains. I hope to come back in the summer to see the lawns, gardens and trees in... More
