My husband and I came to stay for four nights during Thanksgiving. It was a delayed honeymoon for us. The inn is beautiful and Ted and Chris are gracious and attentive hosts. Chris's food is phenomenal - I think I gained 5 pounds! But, our stay in the Tower Room was private, romantic, and luxurious. We loved our vacation!

Prompt, courteous and genuinely friendly hosts. Rooms are individually named and are tastefully furnished in traditional colonial style. Many little extras are provided in rooms. These include books, magazines, games and items of historical interest. One felt timelessly enveloped in a beautifully maintained New England Country Home of yesteryear. Located in a rural setting overlooking rolling hills but close enough... More

I am writing this review with trepidation as I don't want too much competition for the 10 beautiful rooms that this Inn has to offer the next time I want to book there. My husband and I spent two lovely nights on October 17th and 18th. On the 17th, we stayed in the Anna Eliza room. This room was decorated... More

After 5 years of going back to the Inn at Ormsby Hill in Vermont, there is something to be said for consistency. Our experience each time we return to this wonderful place has been nothing short of splendid.

My wife and I stayed in beautiful Manchester Vermont for our anniversary in May at the Equinox Resort. Looking for a more "Vermont" country style experience that would still be refined we toured the area looking for a place that we could come back to. We stopped at the Inn at Ormsby Hill and found it to be a charming... More

On October 5th, Chris received a call from this gentleman who wanted to talk about "breakfast." He said that his sons were simple eaters and would like pancakes for breakfast. I told him that I have never made pancakes and we are known for our gourmet dining (I do not understand the correlation between being a good cook and making... More

Ted and Chris Sprague are outstanding hosts and created a home away from home for us in our visit to Vermont. The Frances Room was comfortable, cheery, well decorated, and furnished with awesome furnishings. The Spragues take considerable interest in all their guests and make each of their stays very relaxing. Chris is an unbelieveably talented chef and provides the... More

The Inn was very picturesque with several areas that one could relax and read a book. The owners were very accommodating and the breakfast was superb. The double fireplace in the bedroom was nice as was the jacuzzi tub for two (with a CD player and CDs furnished for guests). Truly a piece of New England and located right next... More

Ted and Chris have the most incredible sweet spot in Manchester. Their hospitality exceeds any expectations. We stayed in the Lincoln Room and it was incredible. Although it was quite hot, the cross breezes through the many windows was delightful. Chris's breakfasts are beyond belief. Three courses, each prepared to perfection! We will most definitely return. Would love to visit... More

We have stayed at the Inn at Ormsby and are always eager to return. This year, we had occasion to stay at 2 other inns in Vermont before returning to our favorite standby. Sometimes it's good to see the competition to appreciate what you have. Although our other 2 inns were high quality (a Relais and Chateau B&B and another... More
