Very quiet. A restful get-away.

3.0 on April 25, 2015

We stayed one night in the Morgan room. We were surprised to see the bathtub IN the room (which was on the small size) since this concept just seems weird to us. The beds were comfortable but they were full size rather than queen size and we did feel a bit cramped. The little bathroom was clean. There was a deck but it was too cold this April evening to use it and the outside furniture was not out yet anyway. We both like to read but the two rather delicate antique chairs for sitting were not comfortable enough to sit for very long. The house itself is amazing and the grounds are lovely. You can take a very peaceful walk if you'd like.The breakfast was good but wish it could be offered for a longer time period so the guest could sleep in a little longer! We recommend the Manor House; just check out your particular room to be sure it has all you want.


A quiet, convenient retreat

3.6 on April 21, 2015

We stayed one night in Apr for an Infinity Hall show. The Manor House was beautiful, clean and quiet. We were able to relax on the first floor with some wine and cheese before WALKING to dinner and the show. Wonderfully convenient! They also accommodated an early breakfast so we could get on the road in the morning. Definitely recommend it!


Wonderful Getaway

4.2 on April 21, 2015

We really enjoyed our mini stay at the Manor House. Nicely furnished and touches of historical charm sealed the deal. This is a great place for a romantic weekend or just a fun getaway.


Winter getaway

We were going to tabor folk for a horse drawn sleigh ride and were referred here by the owners of Loon Meadow farm. The place is great. The owners are very friendly. The rooms have great character. We would definitely go back.


Valentine's Get-a-way

5 on March 01, 2015

Stayed the 13th and 14th of February! Cold wintery weekend in New England.. But the fire was blazing and the staff was welcoming! Great house with 8 rooms and lots of common areas. Breakfast each morning was a choice of two entrees and endless coffee and orange juice. Delicious! Rooms are just what you are looking for - Spacious, clean, and comfortable. We live just 45 minutes from this B&B but will consider returning for an escape soon! This one is a winner!


Quiet retreat... walk to town

4.4 on February 18, 2015

1898 manor house restored to original with modern baths. Wood fireplaces in several rooms. Self serve coffee-plus area, large living room, library, porches, etc. Large lawn, short walk to town. Superb breakfasts. Innkeeper was accommodating. Paying extra for all this niceness was worth it.


Great Get-a-way

5 on February 18, 2015

Booked 2 nights as a Valentine's Get-A-Way for my wife and me. What a beautiful and charming "House"! The Manager greeted us and gave us a tour of the expansive common areas and the rooms on our way up to the third floor! All the rooms are large, comfortable and well furnished. There is a sitting area in the common space with a large wood burning fireplace that was blazing in the afternoon, and fruit & snacks available just off the side in the "bar" area where a bottle of Red and White wine is open for guests to enjoy. Breakfast was excellent with 2 choices each morning, plus Granola Yogurt, self serve coffee. tea, and orange juice.. The service was pleasant and prompt! Infinity Music Hall is a very short drive (a nice walk in better weather) and the Manor House is an ideal place to relax and enjoy this truly New England town and the entertainment offered. Although we live just 40 minutes away - I know we'll be back to enjoy The Manor House again!

Perfect ending to 2014

5 on January 04, 2015

We were greeted graciously by Holly when we arrived at Manor House and invited to drinks and homemade cookies. My sister and I had stayed here years earlier so we knew how beautiful the inn was when my family and I decided to end our year in a cozy, quaint setting. We were supposed to have a 2-room suite with a gas fireplace but found out it was not working when we arrived. It was in the process if being fixed and because we were disappointed at not having a cozy fireplace Holly was able to offer us a different room with a wood-burning fireplace instead. The rooms were beautiful and clean and very comfortable. We hung out for awhile drinking tea and eating cookies and playing games with our kids. After dinner we continues our family New Year's Eve celebration in our room. Again Holly offered us champagne and treats throughout the evening, always making us feel at home. We lit the fire and created exactly what we wanted to end the year--a warm, fun family evening. We awoke the next day to the smell of bacon and had a delicious breakfast of spinach, tomato and feta omelets with bacon (but also had a choice of vanilla French toast with fresh berry syrup), which was tasty and filling. Our son got am extra bonus of having a chance to hang out with Hollys son after breakfast. We sat around for awhile more having a final cup of tea before we left. We left feeling as if we had made new friends; Holly even gave us a bag if cookies and candy for our trip back to New York. Our start to 2015 was exactly as we had wished for. Thanks again Holly and the Manor House! We would definitely come back again!


Romance in Norfolk

3.8 on January 03, 2015

This was an absolutely wonderful place to stay if you like historic and well preserved inns. The room we chose for our anniversary stay was the Spoffard room, the original master bedroom of the manor. It was fantastic, giving a warm feel as we walked in, with dark wood wainscoting, Tudor style windows, a working wood fireplace, window seat and a huge comfy bed. The room was clean and quiet and the bed, well, it just couldn't have been more plush and cozy. As we drifted off to sleep with the fire roaring, it felt like a little taste of heaven. The common areas are welcoming and interesting, maintaining the original feel of the 1898 structure, yet clean and comfortable. We walked a few times around the small town of Norfolk, enjoying the green, the historic buildings, and the restaurants, all within easy walking distance of the inn. Holly was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return! Room Tip: Check the website for excellent photos to choose your room. Both the Spoffard and English rooms were wonderful.
