My boyfriend and I chose the Ormsby Inn for a trip to Vermont for our fourth anniversary. It was a good choice.
The Inn itself and the surroundings are just beautiful. It's an immaculately well-maintained old manor with breathtaking mountain views. That alone would have made the trip successful for me, but on top of that the staff was friendly, the food was excellent and everything was amazing.
We were greeted by Christine when we arrived. She showed us around and explained the area and the inn to us. She was a delight, really just the friendliest person you can imagine. She gave us the keys to our room (in our case the Gideon Ormsby). The room was very nice. There's a comfy king-sized bed with a pretty canopy. The bathroom is HUGE (I seriously think it was as big as the room itself). There's a jacuzzi and a nifty wooden panel that opens up so you can see the fireplace from the jaccuzi - very relaxing and very romantic.
Breakfast was awesome. It's a three-course affair, so if you're like me and you're used to just eating a granola bar for breakfast you're going to be VERY full after the first bowl of fruit. Of course, after the fruit there's a yummy Japanese loaf of bread. Then, after THAT there's a plated meal that varies by day. It's all delicious and will leave you full until well passed 2 in the afternoon. Diane and Yoshio, the owners, introduced themselves at breakfast. They were also very friendly and pleasant people.
Everything was better than I expected and I would very much like to go back. While I did love the room we had I'd like to check out some of the other rooms in the future since they're all unique.
