Nuts about Nutmeg

5 on March 05, 2016

This bed and breakfast was a feel good experience. The decor was nice. Our room, number 7, was newly renovated, very cozy, with slanted ceiling, comfortable bed, cute little bathroom. We had everything we needed. Breakfast was wonderful. I enjoyed the spinach frittata, with sausage, my husband had French toast with sausage. Coffee was good. The service was excellent. We Haida refreshing time.

Stayed at the Nutmeg Inn the weekend of a Tough Mudder event (which, in talking to the staff, the entire Inn was running). It was close to Mt. Snow and the rooms and rest of the Inn were well kept. The service staff was extremely helpful, providing suggestions for dinner the night of our arrival. The next morning, we were running out to grab a few things, when one staffer came after us to ensure we weren't leaving because she didn't get to say, "goodbye!" The breakfast in the morning was incredible! All in all it was a great get away and we'd love the opportunity to go back.

A perfect vacation

This is the perfect place for a relaxing vacation. The staff, Deb, Wendy, Tiffany and Mark, and the owners, Doug and Geo, go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The inn occupies a farmhouse dating to the 1770s and is beautifully furnished and decorated. Each guestroom has its own charm, and the downstairs has cozy areas to unwind by a fireplace, socialize and enjoy a glass of wine. The inn is near the restaurants in downtown Wilmington, and Mount Snow is just up the road. Be sure to take advantage of the terrific breakfast.

Greatest stay experience Ever!

I have never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast before and figured I'd give it a shot. I was extremely nervous but as soon as I walked through the door, all that went away. I was greeted by the friendliest staff, given a tour of the beautiful place and escorted to my room. Unfortunately, our toilet was leaking. We went downstairs and were upgraded to a suite while they fixed the issue. It is 15 minutes away from Mt. Snow and 3 minutes away from a small cute little town with great restaurants. The breakfasts at the Nutmeg Country Inn was the greatest start to the day. They were absolutely delicious! This was truly an incredible experience and I wouldn't stay anywhere else the next time I go skiing. It exceeded my expectations in absolutely every way!

A Sister's Haven in Vermont!!!!

5 on October 18, 2012

We had the most wonderful experience at the Nutmeg Inn! Before we even arrived (on a "Sisters" fall color road trip and were stopping to take lots of pictures along the way!), we got two calls from the Inn to be sure all was well and we didn't get lost and need further help finding the inn. Once we finally arrive there at 7pm, two hours past "wine hour", our gracious host, Doug, met us and took us on a tour and immediately invited us to share in a glass of wine and chat in the most charming bar/fireplace room. His partner, Geo, soon joined us. It was SO cozy, and the perfect "Vermont inn" you imagine in your fantasy travel dreams!! I couldn't help but hug Doug within minutes of our arrival and thank him and Geo for creating such a marvelous place to experience Vermont in the fall (or any time!). Gorgeous flower arrangement in the lobby, and in the stunning dining rooms, and even on our nightstands.....and Geo's wonderful art work and sculpture through the inn, created such a beautiful, yet relaxed and cozy environment. The Inn felt like it was wrapping it's arms around you with a big hug....just what we needed after a long day on the road! Our room (#7), though one of the smaller rooms, was cozy, clean, comfy and just perfect. Our sit down breakfast, ordered the night before and served at the time that worked best for us, was delicious and so elegantly presented in the lovely dining room....a true delight from many B&B's that only offer a serve yourself continental breakfast of cold cereal and bagels and yogurt with a pull top. What a treat!!! And delicious as well! It was our 5th night on the road, and one of our two favorite B&B's on our 11 day trip. I am already planning next fall's Vermont Color Trip and will for sure book several nights at the Nutmeg Inn with Doug and Geo!!! Thanks for a wonderful stay, Guys!! Debb & Cindy Saint Paul, MN

Fall Vacation

4.4 on October 14, 2012

We only spent one night at the Nutmeg Inn but it was a very good experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Inn is very nice and provides many good amenities. Each night they have a happy hour in the living room area which gives you an opportunity to meet other people staying at the inn. The only thing that was not the greatest was that the room was very small. I could definitely recommend this inn.

Cozy & comfortable

3.8 on October 04, 2012

The Nutmeg Inn was quite charming, and a perfect stop for the first night of a 10 day road trip. Located just outside the heart of Wilmington, the room was a good size, well appointed (my husband & I made good use of the fireplace!), clean, quiet & quite comfortable. There were minor details that could use attention: the towel rail fell off the wall in the bathroom when we hung our towels up; the bed frame was missing some finishing pieces & rattled a little, but otherwise, no complaints. The breakfast was quite delicious as well, and we would not hesitate to stay here again!
