My husband and I had a grand time at Spruce Hill Manor thinks to the good work of Janet and Anthony. Janet went beyond expectation in making us comfortable and our trip so enjoyable. The Billie Holiday room was large, light filled, well appointed, and the bed was comfortable. We look forward to out next visit.

We have stayed at many B&Bs across the country. Spruce Hill was definitely one of the best. Our room - the Audobon Suite - was very large, nicely decorated, very clean, and extremely quiet. Breakfast was delicious - fresh fruit, quiche, cereals, bread, and excellent bubka. Most important was the warm welcome we got from Janet. We phoned and not... More

The first thing to stand out was the building itself. Though it was a chilly northeast night, the building was warm and inviting; once inside, it only got better! The entry, dining room, library, hallways, and of course my room were just fantastic - it's so nice to stay in a home that has tremendous character. As for the host,... More
