“Delightful Innkeepers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

Diane & Yoshio welcomed us into their inn with open arms. It was a lovely 2-night getaway. The room was very clean and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. Yoshio passionately discussed the history of the inn with us, and we were amazed to see the old inn book containing the signatures of important historical figures. We finally got a chance to visit Hildene, right nearby, and the history of this site, Robert Todd Lincoln's home, was fascinating and informative. We look forward to visiting with Diane & Yoshio again soon.

Stayed November 2013, traveled as a couple

Inns, and innkeepers, are cyclical in nature. First comes the courtship when the starry eyed couple takes over a neglected property from the burnt-out previous owners. Then comes the honeymoon when they restore the inn to greatness, treating guests like royalty along the way. That's the phase that the Inn at Ormsby Hill is in right now. Diane and Yoshio are making this a world class property, by adding personal touches to enhance your experience. Catch them before they collapse in exhaustion. This is luxury and tastefulness at its best. (Ps-thanks for the birthday card. Another nice touch.)

This was the perfect one night getaway location. The Diane and Yoshio were so friendly and accommodating. They are so proud of the Inn and it shows in how passionate they are when they talk of its history. The room was great. A large king 4-post bed that was very comfortable. Beautiful fireplace and awesome 2 person Jacuzzi-tub. Room got a little warm with both going but not uncomfortable. Breakfast was very good and the view incredible. Great romantic getaway.

My husband and I had planned to visit the Inn in November to enjoy the end of foliage and spend some time alone before the holidays started. Unfortunately, we had to move our trip to January due to an illness in the family, but the inn keepers were more than accommodating with our request to move dates! Even before we visited the inn, I knew that the service would be wonderful. We were not disappointed! The rooms and entire Inn were carefully tended to and it showed. I did not see a speck of dust anywhere! The decor was perfect for the quaint VT inn and the service was amazing. The highlight was the homemade breakfast every morning! Breakfast was freshly prepared each morning and was better than most restaurants.
We can not say enough good things about this wonderful Inn. If you are considering a trip to the Inn at Ormsby Hill, don't hesitate! It is well worth the trip!

My daughter and I stayed at the Inn at Ormsby Hill the week after Christmas to unwind from the hectic holiday season. We couldn't have found a more perfect setting to enjoy our quiet time together. Diane and Yoshio are wonderful Inn Keepers who make their guests feel welcome at their immaculate, well appointed B & B. We stayed in the Anne Eliza room which suited us perfectly. Blue and white toile décor along with a fire place that is double-sided between the bedroom and bath added extra coziness to an already beautiful room. Each morning, we looked forward to Diane's home-made creations. We had the most delicious baked oatmeal I have ever tasted. Diane was kind enough to send me the recipe which I have made twice already. Diane and Yoshio also asked if we had any dietary restrictions or requests before we arrived, and were very accommodating to ensure all of their guests enjoyed breakfast. They spent time chatting with guests at each table, sharing some laughs and offering suggestions of area activities and dining.
There was hot water and a choice of tea/coffee/hot cocoa and snacks set up in the dining room all day so guests could relax with a hot beverage before retiring for the evening. The Inn at Ormsby Hill is truly lovely. It is the nicest place to stay in Manchester and we look forward to our next visit.

We stayed at the Inn to celebrate my birthday and we couldn't have been more pleased. The suite was just beautiful with a great wood burning fireplace and ipod complete with Pandora. The room was cozy and romantic and the inn was welcoming and warm. Yoshio and Diane are wonderful hosts with great dinner suggestions and ideas for activities in the area. We enjoyed meeting them and spending some time with them learning about the inn and how they came to own it. I recommended this inn to all of my friends, I was so sad to leave and look forward to our next visit North. You can't go wrong here!

My wife and I recently spent the two days after Christmas at this wonderful Inn. We had a great time. We stayed in the Lincoln room which is very charming and romantic. The sauna and whirlpool were incredible. Place was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and filling. We will definitely return to this gem in Vermont, and bring are best friends along to experience the Inn at Ormsby Hill. Thanks Diane and Yoshio.....Steve and Lynn
