I'm still relatively new to the whole B&B phenomena, but I'm all-in if this is what the rest are like.
The rooms are quaint, with 18th century-inspired decor, and the room I stayed in boasted a "wow-this-feels-like-home" vibe. The beds, however, aren't stiff, backbreaking ones I'm used to at home -- in fact, they're soft, fluffy and just downright comfortable. Also, in typical Bostonian fashion, I couldn't be without my standard amenities, meaning cable to watch the Sox game, and high-speed internet to keep in touch with the rest of the world. Surprisingly, I got both, whew!
The service was excellent as well. Since my GPS took me to the wrong part of town (apparently almost all of these do, according to one of the owners, Doug), I called and got friendly and easy-to-follow directions to get my directionally-challenged behind to the front door. Also, since I was in town for Mudder weekend (yeah, I ran and kicked butt too!) I got a chance to sit and chat with the owners and other Mudders with a free glass of Chardonnay (whiskey, or perhaps diesel fuel may have been more testosterone-y, but hey, I'm not one to turn down free alcohol.
And oh, the breakfast. French toast to die for. I'm a french-toast buff, and Nutmeg's is right up there with the best I've had. Crispy on the outside, and custardy on the inside. I'm getting hungry thinking of it right now, don't judge me.
Since Nutmeg's just a 10-15 drive from Mount Snow, I think I've found my permanent lodging for future ski trips and Tough Mudder weekends.
