“Great romantic getaway”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

We came last summer for a one night stay, and were so impressed we came back again for a proper weekend stay. Ted and Chris made us feel welcomed and relaxed. The inn itself was gorgeous and our room even more so. We stayed in the Lincoln room. Chris' breakfasts were creative and tasted fantastic. You don't even need to eat lunch afterwards, as the portions are very generous. Manchester has become one of our favorite New England destinations, and as far as we are concerned, the Inn at Ormsby Hill is the only place to stay in Manchester!

We love the fact that you had such a good experience your first time you returned to us again for a longer stay. "Welcomed" and "relaxed" - as far as we are concerned - the two best adjectives to describe us. Thank you so much - and we look forward to welcoming you back for your third visit.

When my wife suggested that she would like to go away for an extended weekend as part of her birthday celebration, Vermont, as always for us, jumped to the top of the list! Now, where to stay? After exhaustive research (which included reviews written by others), we decided to stay at the Inn at Ormsby Hill, in Manchester, Vermont. We were in for a most pleasant surprise! The Inn is very cozy. As we bathed in the ambiance of the dining room fireplace, wine glasses in hand, we felt our cares melt away. Ted and Chris are very gracious and accommodating and made us feel as though we were old friends, even though this was our first time at their Inn. Our room, the Pierrepont, was wonderful- warm, soft, king bed and very quiet! Come hungry for breakfast, Chris will make sure you don't leave that way! She has an obvious talent for creating culinary delights that are sure to please. The Inn's location is superb- close to everything yet far from the bustle of traffic. I would HIGHLY recommend that anyone who is considering staying in the Manchester, Vermont area give the Inn at Ormsby Hill a visit. You will not be disappointed!

Chris and Ted Sprague, Innkeepers of The Inn at Ormsby Hill of Manchester Center, Vermont
own and operate one of the finest small 4 diamond inns(11 rooms) in all of New England.
They are gracious hosts. Chris creates inventive and delicious breakfasts during your stay.
This couple understands the meaning of the words" gracious hospitality!" Jeanne and I stayed there in Feb.2012 for our 39th anniversary. We will definitely return there in the future, and highly recommend this property when visiting southern Vermont to ski, shop, or just to relax.

Room Tip: The Library Room.

When in VT the Inn at Ormsby Hill is the place to stay. The innkeepers, Ted and Chris, make sure that you have an amazing stay. You haven't had a breakfast until you have one of Chris's.
The food is wonderful and fresh. The rooms are all wonderfully decorated and cozy. My husband have made this trip for four years now. The second year we decided to try another B&B, we will never make that mistake again.

We live in Northern Vermont but unfortunately, rarely get down into the southern part of the state. We took a little one night getaway to Ormsby Hill and had a lovely experience! The inn is beautifully decorated, and the guest rooms have lovely historic touches nodding to the history of the building while being filled with many of the modern amenities we have come to appreciate, like wireless internet, small flat screen TV's, I-pod docks etc. The Innkeepers Chris and Ted take pride in the little details too like cookies in the room, plenty of interesting reading material, and rubber duckies to float in the jacuzzi tub! The breakfast is not to be missed and was lovely in the windowed dining room surrounded by 3 inches of newly fallen snow! We will certainly go back!

Room Tip: We loved the Taft Room with its separate sitting room, wood fireplace, jacuzzi and steam shower!

Just stayed again at the finest inn that we've stayed in so far, the Inn at Ormsby Hill in Manchester, VT. We stayed once again in the Tower room, which is very unique in its design. It is a spacious room with a very, very comfortable canopy queen size bed and a cozy sitting area with love seat, wing chair, drum table and fire place. The bathroom, which is on a level of its own has an inviting jacuzzi tub and steam shower. We like that the room on its multi-levels has windows that give you views all around the building.

Chris's breakfasts are extremely scrumptious and keep you full all the way to dinner time. No where else have I ever had dessert after breakfast. I'm sure I gained a few pounds but they were worth every bite. Ted, Chris's husband, helps to serves breakfast and adds to the morning cheer. Both Chris and Ted take great care to making sure your experience their is nothing short of top-notch.

On this visit we went to see Hildene, Robert Todd Lincoln's Estate, which is very close by, walked around Manchester but also took time to just relax, reading and knitting in the beautiful conservatory just unwinding from the often stressful world we live in. There is much to do in the Manchester area as well. Whether you like to ski, shop the area's designer outlets, canoe or kayak the Battenkil, head to summer theater in Weston, eat at some fine restaurants, this is a perfect place to stay.

We are already wishing we were back there and hope to return again.

To have someone say "it doesn't get any better than this" beyond humbles us. Then to follow up with: "Just stayed again at the finest inn we've stayed in so far....". There are not enough ways to say how truly thankful and grateful we are, except we so look forward to your return.
