Over the last forty years, I have stayed in hotels and inns in something pretty darn close to a hundred countries. And I think all those hotel nights, some of them in pretty strange places, entitle me to tell you at least one thing with some real authority: all the reviews you have read below are absolutely true. You will never have a better all around accommodation experience anywhere in the world than you will at Spencer on Main in Suffield, Connecticut. It really is just that simple.
The innkeepers are the principal reason. They are gracious, tasteful, elegant, charming, warm people whose personal qualities are deeply infused into their beautiful inn.
If you are traveling to central Connecticut and are lucky enough to get into one of their three rooms, don't even think of staying anywere else. If you are not traveling to central Connecticut and are planning on going to, say, Paris instead, change your plans. It will be well worth it just for the privilege of staying at Spencer on Main.
