“Comfortable Inn, Great Breakfasts, Charming Innkeepers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

We stayed at Spencer on Main over a weekend about a month ago while in the area for a family celebration. Our room was the Bird in Nest King Suite. We highly recommend this inn. Our room was large with a great bathroom, a nice sitting room and a comfortable bed. Breakfasts were delicious with a nice balance of fruit, croissants and an entree. The Innkeepers were very helpful directing us to restaurants and activities in the area. When in this area again, we would definitely stay here.

Find an excuse to visit this Inn. We stay in B&Bs all the time, and this is the most gracious and among the most beautiful. Plus, the hosts are excellent chefs! We have stayed there twice for family funerals. Now, we're hoping for a family wedding so we will have an excuse to go back.

And that's just saying a little. Spenser on Main is a beautiful Victorian house niched in Suffield, CT. Seeing the house for the first time really left a strong impression on me: you really feel like you are going back in time as you step in this colorful, clean and welcoming house. Etienne and Caroline will definitely make sure you feel at home and enjoy your stay as much as possible. Every room is different and each with their own charm. And as my title suggests, the delicious breakfast you will be served before taking the road will leave you with a lasting positive impression. Thank you for an amazing time.

You've stayed in B&Bs before, right? Not like this one. This house is a magic mansion, full of history of a bygone era. The books, photographs, furniture - everything has been meticulously preserved to create a warm, elegant home. Spencer-on-Main is a most interesting and agreeable place. From the fresh flowers in our room, to the comfortable four poster bed, to the spotless and very large bathroom... our room was perfection. But wait - there's more! Our bedroom also had a separate library / sitting room. It was truly a most relaxing and beautiful space.

Breakfast was a spectacular event with fresh fruit, an incredible "french toast creme brulee", and sausage, along with cheese and pastries. Saving the best for last, Spencer-on-Main's finest attributes are the hosts, Caroline and Etienne. Warm and fascinating, they represent the best of what the B&B experience has to offer. Bravo, Spencer-on-Main. We look forward to returning!

Room Tip: This is a large mansion that has only 3 guest rooms - two of which have their own separate sitting r...

"Spencer on Main", built by ancestors of the owner over a hundred years ago, is furnished in exceptional antiques acquired by the families over many years, yet is comfortable and alive. Our room had an exquisite canopy bed surrounded by sophisticated decor. Our bathroom was newly renovated and pristine, designed with its own special style but also compatible with the room.
The town of Suffield is breathtaking and like a time capsule in its authenticity. It is completely untouched by commercialism, which seems to abound everywhere else.
The owners do everything possible to make you feel comfortable, serving lavish breakfsts ion elegant china. They are also very interesting to talk to--the time can go by very quickly! They have travelled the world over.

What more can we say than what everyone else has said? Everything was wonderful - the suite, the beautiful inn, the delicious breakfasts, and Etienne's and Caroline's warm hospitality. We had an absolutely lovely weekend.

We stayed at Spencer on Main earlier in July. The house was beautiful. It has an authentic feel as it is furnished with things from many generations of the same family who have occupied it. Yet it feels comfortable and welcoming.The hosts were gracious and friendly, particularly in light of a misunderstanding as to the actual day of our arrival. The breakfast food which Caroline prepared was delicious and well-prepared - some of the best crepes we have ever eaten. This is one of the best B&Bs we have stayed at.
