“The Inn at Ormsby Hill is a diamond set within the beautiful scenery of Manchester, Vermont.”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

My husband and I stayed here just this past weekend for the first time. What a wonderful experience!

An historic and well appointed house on immaculate grounds. You will feel right at home instantly. Beautiful, spacious rooms with extremely comfortable beds. We stayed in the Lincoln room which had a gorgeous canopy king size bed and a fantastic bathroom. So much to look at and enjoy. On top of all that, breakfast is truly a special experience especially if you can enjoy the fabulous food while
sitting on the outside patio taking in the beautiful scenery.

Yoshio and Diane are wonderful hosts! We will certainly be back.

It is a testament to the quality of an Inn where you feel totally invited and comfortable when you get lucky enough to have the inn completely to yourself. I experienced this recently, on a off spring weekday, with a two day stay at the Inn at Ormsby Hill in Manchester, Vermont. The new owners, Yoshio and Diane, have successfully embraced the unique concept of what a stay at a Five Star Vermont Historical Bed and Breakfast is all about. The Inn is an elegant historical home with comfortable common areas, a guest refrigerator and beverages and snacks available 24/7. I was lucky to be given a tour and history of this beautiful Inn. The Frances Suite/Honeymoon suite is the ultimate in absolute luxury and space. All the rooms are tastefully decorated with beautiful furnishings. Most of the rooms have fireplaces and Jacuzzi tubs to soak in. the Inn is set back on a landscaped lot with outside seating areas in the back for the enjoyment of the wonderful Vermont mountain scenery and sunshine. There is a sun filled breakfast parlor to have your well made custom breakfast. It is located a mile from downtown historical Manchester Vt., a Mecca for outlet shoppers and a short distance to local ski areas, golf courses and hiking trails. I stayed in the Gideon Ormsby room which had an outside entrance, making it easy to come and go as I pleased. I highly recommend this Inn for its beauty, peace and hospitality.

Room Tip: If you come and go a lot, there are two rooms with outside entrances.

Rest and relaxation; romance and landscapes, food and fun are some of the pairings that go with a weekend or week in Vermont. Enter Manchester - and a meet new owners of Ormsby Hill, Diane and Yoshio, who are making this gorgeous Inn better than ever. As hosts , they both make you feel like you have visited many times before. Every room in the inn is beautiful, but the grounds, backyard and view of the mountains are even more stunning. You will have no trouble staying outside on the rocking chairs, patio, or gazebo with a beverage - more peaceful to me than the ocean. Another viewer wrote, and I agree, it is a special place - with alot of history and interesting stories that I won't reveal here but can be told once you get there. Once you discover the Inn, you will want to book your next trip. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. - KD

I must say the Inn at Ormsby Hill was a pleasure. PLEASE disregard all negative reviews from the previous innkeepers because the new owners Diane and Yoshio Endo are wonderful!! The hospitality and friendliness of this couple was fantastic. I chose the Ormsby for my wife Susan's surprise birthday getaway in the beautiful town of Manchester without any previous knowledge of the inn. And what a fantastic weekend it was. Perfect weather coupled with great accommodations. We stayed in one room the first night and another the next, both fabulous. I cannot say enough about the Ormsby as a wonderful quaint Vermont inn except to say we will be staying there again whenever we go to Manchester. Loved it! Bill Stonner

When you're looking for an inn to stay at for your 35th anniversary, you don't just want any inn. You want a fabulous inn. The Inn at Ormsby Hill is such a very special place. Our hosts Diane and Yoshio made us feel at home immediately, and by the time our four day weekend was over, we felt like part of the family.

We have stayed at exquisite inns and hotels all over the world and we have to say that this was absolutely one of the best! The common rooms were so inviting, and our room was spacious and wonderful. Soaking in the whirlpool each evening was a relaxing end to the day. And last, but very much not least, were Diane's amazing breakfasts. These were served in an inviting breakfast room overlooking the Inn at Ormsby Hill's beautiful garden (and entertaining bird feeer) and the magnificent mountains.

Manchester has always been a very special place for us. The Inn at Ormsby Hill made it even more special on our special occasion. We will certainly be back. Thank you Diane and Yoshio!

We've been coming to the Inn at Ormsby Hill for 7 years now, almost once per year. Once we came here once we were hooked. The inn itself is a gorgeous colonial home with a rich history, and every guest room is richly appointed and spotlessly clean. I am constantly impressed by the innkeepers attention to every detail of our stay. The breakfasts are well-prepared and healthy. The rates now during off-season are very reasonable -- allowing us to spend more money antiquing!

We just returned from a weekend getaway and the relaxation was total. if you are visiting Manchester I can highly recommend the Inn at Ormsby Hill.

Room Tip: The Anne Eliza and Pierrepont rooms are our favorites -- lower priced but still richly decorated and...

The old Isham homestead is now an inn which has been very elegantly refurbished and modernized. Each room is uniquely decorated and include fireplaces and extravagant bathrooms. Inn owners Diane and Yoshi are quite welcoming and put out a delicious and generous breakfast each morning. A history of the remarkable Isham family is provided in each room and you can hike out back to visit the Robert Todd Lincoln residence if you are further enticed. Although the inn is located on busy (relatively, by VT standards) 7A, the back of the property faces the southeast and provides beauty and tranquility. Our room (Ethan Allen) was on the ground floor and you could hear noise from the rooms above, but guests are overall very quiet and sounds of the rear meadow greeted us along with the morning sun.

Room Tip: See them all, each one is unique.
