I think The Nutmeg is fairly nice, but my review is certainly influenced by our stay just prior in one of the best B&B's ever. The Nutmeg suffers by comparison. We were greeted by Shelly who was pleasant. She did make a point to mention (more than once) the beverages in one of the many common rooms. She did tell us they were available for an added charge. However, she did not offer to show us the other common areas nor to our room. That was almost the last we saw of her during our 3 night stay other than a chance encounter in the breakfast room when she was chatting with a couple of other guests who appeared to be friends of hers - we passed with no acknowledgement we were there which seemed strange. The room was ok, but a bit tired with a few problems or shortcomings we noted: No Hooks on any of the doors including bathroom for hanging robes, etc. One fairly small towel rack in smallish bathroom The Leftover Hearth from old fireplace is dangerous - a broken toe or trip is a distinct possibility No checkout instructions - luckily, I spied the key cleaning box on a table My wife enjoyed breakfast - I was disappointed ... no sugar free provisions or questions about dietetic needs. A choice of 4 items, but at least 2 of the days those choices were exactly the same - none of which to my liking. Parking rules were fairly adamantly explained to us - when returned at night it was obvious no one listened or obeyed In defense of the Nutmeg, this is a bit more of an Inn since there are 14 rooms (I believe) and not a B&B in the strictest sense. It is a neat old building with some work clearly underway. The location is difficult to pick out at night and the entrance / exit is in middle of a curve and since the road is busy exiting can be problematic. Overall, a very nice choice, but it could be better - I felt everything was done for the establishment's convenience (a sentiment my wife did not really share) as opposed to the customer's. It is in a great spot to explore the green Mountains - especially Scenic Rt 100. The prices are very reasonable, and it is close to what Wilmington offers as a fairly small town. You could certainly do worse!…
My husband and I spent 1 night at the Nutmeg on a recent Vermont Route 100 road trip. We arrived around 6 PM so we weren’t able to get a view of the outside until the morning. The inn was warm and inviting as soon as we walked through the door. Our room was on the first floor, next to the game room. The was another couple playing scrabble and inside our room we couldn’t hear a thing, however if you are a light sleeper, try for a second floor room. You can really hear the traffic at night. The breakfast was amazing and the chocolate chip cookies were delicious. We never met the owner, but the woman who brought us our breakfast was very sweet and told us the history of the house. My only complaint would be the carpet in our room was a worn and old, but carpeting is one of my personal quirks. The hardwood floors in other areas are beautiful and I just wished we had that look in our room. All in all a good stay and we would definitely recommend to anyone traveling to Wilmington.…
Delightful inn. The owner is very friendly. It is an odd old structure, so the rooms are oddly shaped to match the structure. There are extensive common areas to lounge in that are great. It is very clean. The breakfast frittata and the French toast breakfast are both superb. I arrived after dark and could not see the sign and my GPS did not locate it correctly... something I hope they fix. The owner talked to us late into the evening so that we could find our way there.
I was just at the Nutmeg and want to go back! Our hosts Shelley and Paul made everything perfect . Our group was 10 friends there to celebrate a couple’s vow renewal… the inn went above and beyond to make it so special. Beds were super comfy and breakfast was super yummy! Rhonda , waitress and more was so friendly and had suggestions on places to go and things to do! We will be back!!!
Exceptional in every way, hosts/owners amazing , willing to chat and share stories of the history of the inn, you don't get this at Hilton, breakfast spectacular the smell of bacon wafting into your room at 8am well..... do I need to say more beds incredible I don't think I've ever slept so good, chocolate chip cookies on arrival nice touch, just a note it's a "shared" Inn so if you happen to have the room adjacent to the kitchen and someone is making coffee or using the microwave at night, confirmed with owners this is ok because " that"s why it's there" don't be rude and tell other guests to keep it down go somewhere else, inn amazing guests not so much
I had a lovely weekend at The Nutmeg. Shelley and her team are so welcoming. Breakfast is delicious and served with fresh, tasty coffee. I contacted Shelley about my food allergies and she was able to accommodate me. My room was petite, perfect for a solo traveler, and comfortable. The Nutmeg is very clean and the common areas are perfect for relaxing with a book. Easy onsite parking and close to downtown
We always return to the Nutmeg in summer because Shelly is such a wonderful innkeeper and the Marlboro music festival is not far away. This time we used the pool which was very refreshing on the hot weekend we were there. The lady who served us breakfast could not have been nicer or more gracious and the breakfast itself was perfect as always. We highly recommend for a great stay in Wilmington..
My husband and I just stayed a night at The Nutmeg and we loved it. Overall atmosphere was inviting and cozy and the breakfast was amazing. The downstairs common areas are filled with amazing literature finds of all genres. We will be visiting again.
Way better than average breakfast & superb coffee. My room was spotless, quaint and upgraded from standard queen to king with FP with staff compliments. Location is close enough to all local attractions without being either right smack in busiest area of town, nor far up a muddy gravel road. Staff was attentive without being intrusive. A very comfortable place to stay solo or otherwise.
Check in was fast and courteous, but too much discussion on the two small complimentary chocolate chip cookies.No coffee or drinks available, except wine,soda, chips, cheese,toilet articles in lounge areas and rooms for an expensive fee. Breakfast was outstanding, and the service too. Bathroom was small with very small short toilet, in need of grab bar to get up from toilet.TV worked very well,and portable heater was good and badly needed.Mattress was very old and worn with springs protruding everywhere. Mentioned the negatives to the owner which were received graciously, but never got a callback or e-mail if anything was done. For this poor response I would not recommend staying at The Nutmeg.
