“Wonderful place to relax and enjoy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2012

My wife and I decided on The Inn at Ormsby Hill for our anniversary getaway. I'm so glad we did. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome and comfortable. Everyone there is helpful, friendly and just enjoyable to talk to.

The inn is very warm a cozy. I wish we had more time to sit and relax in the common common areas. The books, antiques and even architectural elements that abound make it such an enjoyable place to wander around.

The rooms are all unique. We stayed in the "Tower Room" which had a wonderful view of the mountains in back. It's a unique room and a great place to relax. While the bed may not have the most modern mattress, it was still comfortable and we slept well.

The outdoor space is wonderful as well. Mountain views, great places to sit and relax and even a screened gazebo. A perfect spot to enjoy wine and cheese.

Breakfasts are truly decadent. Wonderful food, huge portions and how can you say no to dessert at 9:00 AM? We seriously couldn't even think of eating lunch.

We really enjoyed our stay and will absolutely go back.

We are thrilled and honored that you chose Ormsby Hill for your anniversary escape and that you look forward to returning. Thank you for your comment on the mattress, which we will definitely check out - because is one of our newer mattresses, it is something that we need to address immediately. The next time you come, we hope you will sit and relax a bit more and enjoy our surroundings.

I took my wife to the Inn @ Ormsby Hill for Mother's Day and her birthday in the same weekend. We had a two-room suite with two bathrooms [one with a jacuzzi and the other with a steam bath]. We had a private balcony looking out onto the Green Mountains. Very peaceful and only the birds making any sounds.
Breakfast each morning was a delight of tasteful sensations. One day bread pudding with maple syrup, another day eggs with puff pastry. Each breakfast was preceded by a fruit dish and cake. Chris and Ted are great hosts!
Each room has its own character...but each room has a slinky and an Etch-a-sketch to amuse young and old.
To say that my wife and I had a great weekend is an understatement. I surprised my wife with flowers on her birthday [with assistance from Ted who hooked me up with a great florist].

Room Tip: Rooms facing the rear of the inn are quietest

We just love that your mother's day/birthday weekend celebration was "great" and that we were able to help with the surprise of flowers. We truly look forward to your return.

This is a gorgeous inn just outside of Manchester village with beautiful rooms. The bedrooms have fireplaces and Jacuzzi tubs. I almost wanted the weather to be cold, because everything was so cozy and it was a pleasure to spend time there.
Loved the nice little touches like the embroidered pillow and Etch A Sketch & Slinky in every room, and being able to get coffee early in the morning.
The breakfasts are a bit odd, featuring the sort of things one would more usually eat for lunch or supper (one example: blueberry crumble and ice cream!) but the food is undeniably delicious.

This was our second visit to The Inn at Ormsby Hill -- and, once again, we absolutely loved our stay. Chris and Ted could not be more warm and welcoming, and Chance could not be more adorable (I give them a lot of credit for training their new puppy and doing such an excellent job of it). All the staff, in fact, made us feel at home.

The Inn is beautiful and our room (The Tower) was the perfect retreat for our romantic getaway. We especially loved all the natural light coming in from the many windows on each "floor" of the room. It was extremely quiet and peaceful, and the bed allowed for an extremely restful night's sleep. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.

And, oh, the breakfasts... wow. So delicious. Three delectable courses and excellent service to boot.

One thing I'd really like to note is how personal the innkeepers really try to make the experience -- I have been to inns where you don't even meet the innkeepers and you feel like you're just passing through or at a hotel. At this Inn, you get the real deal. And it's so refreshing -- that is, after all, why we choose to stay at inns in the first place.

Can't wait for our third visit... hopefully sooner rather than later.

Thanks again!

We just returned from the most wonderful week at this great Inn. We can't say enough about the warm & tasteful decor, the beautiful setting and our perfect room. We stayed in the Frances Suite which had a king bed, 2 bathrooms (one with Jacuzzi & one with steam shower), 2 fireplaces, a living room, wet bar & balcony overlooking the grounds & mountains. It was very spacious & meticulously clean. What more could you want for a week's stay? The owners, Ted & Chris were wonderful - very friendly, helpful, accomodating, knowledgeable of the area, and always on hand if we needed anything. Chris's breakfasts were truly unique & so delicious - she is indeed a gourmet cook! Ted is a master at building a fire & he was kind enough to lay a fire in the fireplace every day of our stay.

And last, but certainly not least, there was "Chance", the resident puppy who was so full of life & love and wanted to share it with everyone he came in contact with. What a joy he was and what an asset to the Inn!

We have stayed in many Inns and The Inn at Ormsby Hill, without a doubt, is one of the best.
We definitely plan on returning!
