Had the opportunity to book a Valentine's Day getaway and was fortunate to be able to share some time traveling through the beautiful Battenkill area of VT to Manchester and the Inn at Ormsby Hill. The Inn is a few miles south of Manchester but that ws not a problem as we planned to go out for a nice dinner at the Ye Olde Tavern in Manchester and then enjoy the Inn's surroundings.
We stayed in the Thompson Purdy room which is on the second floor and nicely decorated with a comfortable king bed, two chairs and table in small sitting are at the foot of the bed and in front of the gas fireplace. A real wood fireplace would have been more romantic (the Inn has a few i think) but it was nice.
The bathroom is spacious and has a shower and a 2-person jacuzzi soaking tub with bath salts - which was wonderful..Oh yes!
Breakfast was very nice - all guests were asked to meet in the dining area at 9am - which was a open and airy sunny room with many fresh flowers on tables and in windows looking out at the mountains....coffee was on from 7am for early risers and the owner chef prepared a nice meal - OJ, mixed berries with a coconut lime glaze - yum, and an egg dish (forgot the name - sorry) with goat cheese and red raspberry glaze and 2 delish sausage patties...accompanied by Japanese milk bread with maple butter. .
The Inn was very nice inside with a large sitting area and a separate game room sitting area..there were 14 guests and a nice mix of people all welcomed by the owners and staff...oh did i mention that they had fresh baked cookies and cupcakes in the dining area all day with coffee or tea..nice touch. Stop in - you will be glad you discovered this Inn.
