We enjoyed our stay at this inn but would not call it "perfection".
First the good things: very good staff, friendly and accommodating. Good location between Bennington and Marlboro (we were here for the Music Festival); Wilmington is a nice little town. Beautiful common rooms, particularly the breakfast room areas. Good breakfast with attentive service...although if you are in Vt to have those spectacular 3 course breakfasts, it's not that fancy. It's clear that the Owners and staff care about the property, and they have their hands full with this very old farm house.
The inn is under new management, I think for about a year. It's apparent that they have been fixing up the place and when they are done it's going to be fabulous. In the meantime, there is a mix of old and new. Some of this is just odd, such as contemporary artwork in the middle of a "country" room, which did not bother us. Of more substance was the dated bathroom (but the plumbing functioned) with the weird door (it was fashioned like a large shutter, floor to ceiling but there was zero sound reduction, if you know what I mean). The king sized bed was beautiful but the mattress was too soft. I think that will be the next round of upgrades. There was an old TV that had sort of a milky picture that sat on top of a fridge that had definitely seen better days. The central air conditioning worked well, thankfully, but it was too cold to stay in the room. The nice folks at the desk closed the vent but as the thermostat was outside of the room in the hall, the only way to make the room comfortable was to leave the door open.
So I'm rating this Inn under "very good" due to these various shortcomings, but we would stay here again. I can't imagine what it has been like for the new owners. They must have purchased the place shortly before the floods from last August's tropical storm (which did not flood the Inn but damaged a lot in the area).

Room Tip: When picking out a room, I'd suggest garden view. This inn is directly on a main (but two lane) road. Facing the garden in the back of the property, we did not have any issues sleeping with traffic noise.

Words cannot even describe how truly wonderful of an experience my boyfriend and myself had at the Nutmeg Inn. Neither of us has ever tried the Bed and Breakfast life before and boy are we now hooked. Although we only went for one night, due to our schedules, not because we didn’t want to stay longer, this trip was amazing and will always be remembered. The best three words to describe The Nutmeg are RELAXING, ROMANTIC and WELCOMING. Doug and Geo are unbelievable at what they do. From the "seafood" at the welcome wine to the scrumptious French toast in the morning everything they had to offer, including the goodbye hung, was memorable. The room took our breath away when we walked in and the Jacuzzi was our best friend! Needless to say, the two of us are planning a trip back in October and to send my parents there as a Christmas gift. We are still glowing when we think about the peace and charm of our stay. Thank you for such a memorable night!!! ~Jessica and Dave

Spent two nights at the wonderful Nutmeg Inn. Doug and Geo are marvelous hosts and, with their skilled staff, attend to every detail. The inn is elegant, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfasts are delicious and beautifully served. Each day at cocktail hour I sat in the yard with a complimentary glass of wine and enjoyed the peaceful surroundings. Can't wait to go back in cool weather and enjoy the inn's cozy lounge areas and the natural beauty of VT.

My daughter and son in law had their small intimate wedding at the Nutmeg Inn. The day was perfect. Every detail was taken care of. The food and service was delightful. The property is lovely and the rooms are decorated beautifully. Everything about the Nutmeg Inn will make you happy and the innkeepers will welcome like your family.
