“Homey Welcome”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

My wife and I stayed at the Nutmeg after 4 days of bicycle touring and tent camping. The last 20 miles before arriving were biked in the rain. I was cold and tired and immediately the owner made me feel at home and welcomed. After a hot shower and getting my biking clothes in the laundry we were shown around and offered the run of the house. The rooms are cozy and very clean. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Despite its proximity to Rte 9 the road noise was almost unnoticible. We even had a front room. Apparently the renovations of this 1800s house added a foot to the outer front walls thus eliminating the noise. I did find it odd that they serve beer and wine but had no soda or other non alcoholic drinks around except for ice water. The limited breakfast menu (egg feats, French toast, or waffles) had to be ordered the evening before which I found odd. However, breakfast was tasty. I also enjoyed the multiple public sitting rooms. I would definitely go back and was glad we selected this spot .

What a great Inn! What a fine piece of History! If you're looking for a spiffy-new, cookie-cutter Micro-Tel, then please drive on by. If you like unique, lovingly restored, slightly creaky, well-appointed B&B's with beautiful grounds, great breakfasts and a staff that treats you like friends, then here's your place! Wilmington is a lovely little town that is still a bit in post-flood rebuilding mode. We're so glad we checked it out on our way through. The Nutmeg Inn caught our eye, and we're very glad we stayed. Each room is quite special, and filled with a nice balance of antiques and original art created by one of the owners. What can I say? It all works! The common areas are comfy and welcoming - perfect for curling up with a book or having a conversation. We loved strolling the grounds, meeting the ducks and enjoying a glass of wine. We are also extremely grateful that the owners mailed us our bag of laundry that we accidentally left behind. Heh. Ooops. Not sure when our travels will bring us back to Wilmington, but if they do, we know where we;ll be staying. What a treat!

Room Tip: Get the tour. There are many rooms for many needs and many moods.

We stopped at the Nutmeg Inn on a quick trip to Wilmington to attend a memorial service, and to take the opportunity to paddle on Lake Harriman

When we arrived at the inn, the hostess enthustiacally offered us a quick and informative tour of the in, which was in a restored colonial building, filled with artworks collected by the owners, who lif in an apartment in the rear.

We checked out several rooms, some of which were quite spacious, and alll were tastefully decorated... most had fireplaces. Our room, one of the $149 rooms, was a bit less spacious, and, on the second floor, the roof-line was a bit of a problem for the person sleeping on the far side of the bed (they had warned us to watch our heads on a few door-ways, not a problem for us, but watch it if you are over about 5'11"... But this just added to the fun of the experience.

Or bathroom was quite creative, in that in order to include a tub, they had to install it backwards, so the you stood on the slanty end to be near the shower, and the conreols were on the other end... But as I said, it appears it was the only way they could fit the tub... Again, part of the fun of staying there.

When we got settled, we dropped down to the small bar to sample their house wine and beer, being entertained by night-deskclerk, a colorful local lady who doubled as battender. Fun.

They have a slew of menus to the local restaurants (check our review of the Anchor).

Breakfast, which you order in advance, was quite nice... I had the yummy "signature" French toast, which was almost lik a beaad pudding. My girlfriend had the fritatta, which she said was very good. After breakfast we strolled around the back and saw the fantastic garden that the 2 owners had planted, and ran into the owners enjoying their own breakfast on the porch. They were quite welcoming and friendly.

We had kayaks with us, as we planned to paddle on the beautiful Harriman Reservoir, and since we hesitated to carry our kayaks in the car to the memorial service, they not only offered us a place to store the kayaks, but showed us how we could start our paddle from the creek right out the back door (only an option in the spring, when the water is high, but there are plenty of nearby put-in spots). The reservoir is quite neat, though we only covered a small part in the 2 hours we had available.

In all an memorable experience. If we are back that way, we may visit again.

We haven't stopped talking about our Vermont visit & our overnight stay at The Nutmeg Inn! Our accommodations were absolutely the best & Wendy went above & beyond to make us feel at home. The inn is so unique and the decor is fabulous including the beautiful works of art ....not a speck of dust or dirt anywhere!! Will definitely recommend The Nutmeg Inn to all our family & friends. Dinner at Anchor Seafood is a must .... The lobster (1 1/4 lb) was delicious!! Breakfast the next morning at the Inn was the icing on the cake --- it was so good & we ate every morsel. We hated to leave and can't thank the staff enough for a great experience!!

We booked a night at the Nutmeg Country Inn to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Upon arrival we were given a top to bottom tour of the inn where everything we possibly needed to know about the history of the inn and the grounds were explained. The breakfast was delicious and very substantial.

The Innkeepers are great folks and dedicated to making sure that every guest feels special. They did an excellent job. We will be back for sure.

Room Tip: Make sure you book a room on the back side away from the road.

My husband and I and our wee dog were delighted to find most accommodating lodging at an Inn so beautifully appointed, ultimately congenial, hospitality outstanding, and breakfast was an added delectable addition... looking forward to our next visit!

Room Tip: Suite Room 12 was excellent - bedroom, sunken living room w/fireplace, and private deck and entrance
