My husband and I just celebrated our anniversary by spending a weekend at Spencer on Main. We absolutely loved it--from making the reservation through check out, everything was just perfect.
The house is gorgeous, beautifully restored and decorated, and spotlessly clean. We stayed in the Bird in the Nest Suite, which had an extremely comfortable king-size bed and an enormous bathroom, complete with dressing table and large modern shower. The bedroom was spacious, bright and beautiful PLUS there was a separate sitting room/library, which had a loveseat that I think opened into a bed. The suite was luxurious, quiet and very private.
Breakfast was superb--eggs Benedict one day, Belgian waffles the next, with fresh fruit, warm bread, rolls and croissants. Upon returning to the inn in the evening, we even found an assortment of wine, liqueurs, etc. so that we could have a nightcap.
Best of all, though, were the innkeepers, Etienne and Caroline. They were so helpful, providing us with suggestions for restaurants, museums, daytrips--they even gave us maps. They are absolutely charming & do everything to make sure that guests are well taken care of.
This is a wonderful place. We hated to leave and we will surely be back.
