My husband and I decided on a whim to go to Vermont, which is one of my favorite places on earth, last weekend. We stayed at The Nutmeg and it was perfect! When we arrived Saturday morning, Shelley informed us that they up upgraded us to a suite, #10. It was so cozy, with a very comfortable "parlor" with overstuffed...

We stayed at The Nutmeg on the first night of our holiday, and were very excited after reading the reviews, seeing the photos online and dealing with the delightful Shelley and Deb before our stay. Unfortunately we didn't arrive at the hotel until 10pm and had to leave the following morning, so we didn't really get a chance to 'experience'...

Thanks so much for your lovely comments Adam, I really appreciate that you took time to leave a review. You're right about the difficulty walking into town from The Nutmeg, that first corner can be a bit tricky so we generally advise against it (we are campaigning for a sidewalk but it looks unlikely at this stage). During the day...

We have arrived a party of six, and immediately Shelly welcomed us and showed us in. The house inside is how I imagine an old English inn: heavy wooden beams, wooden floor with carpets, and a warm feeling of 'welcome home'. Between the rooms, there are comfy family areas with lots of games for both youngsters and adults. When you...

Our trip was a spur of the moment decision. So our choices were limited. We were happy to find that the Nutmeg had availability and that it had really nice ratings, so we did not hesitate to book despite the limited room availability (we typically would have booked a larger room or ground floor). We arrived late afternoon and the...

Thanks so much for your lovely comments and for taking the time to leave a review, we really appreciate it. When we bought this inn a couple of years ago we did so, in part, to be closer to nature. Well, sometimes nature gets a little too close - as it did that weekend. The squirrels were found and successfully...

My husband and I got a late start on our drive from NH to NY for our Anniversary weekend so wanted a place to stay for the night last minute and Nutmeg was perfect.

The Nutmeg was a charming place to spend a night while on our road trip through Vermont. We chose a room with a king sized bed and whirlpool tub on the main floor.

We booked a room for just one night and immediately wished we could have stayed longer. The setting is lovely, the owners are laid back, but attentive and very friendly. We loved the outdoor backyard with firepit and lights strung above patio furniture and picnic tables. The breakfast, which is included with our room, was delicious as well. We will...
