What a lovely, quiet and hospitable place to stay! Everything was high quality and the owners are such interesting people that it made the stay seem more like vacation than a business overnight. Only wished I could have stayed longer. Plan to come back again for sure.

We dropped in last-minute on a spur-of-the-moment Memorial Day weekend road trip through CT. We called just half an hour in advance, reserved "Aunt Clara's Room," and found the home and our quarters both inviting and immaculate upon our arrival. Etienne and Caroline went out of their way to accommodate us: providing detailed directions to their favorite restaurants, offering to...

I have stayed in B&Bs throughout New England, but this was overall the most beautiful and memorable experience I have had.

The hostess and host Caroline & Etienne treat everyone as...

The mansion is beautifully and exotically decorated with countless European aristocratic and historic touches, as well as luxurious private accommodations. Etienne and...

We stayed at Spencer on Main for 1 night this past weekend and I wish it had been more. The hosts, Etienne and Caroline, were absolutely wonderful. They treated us like old family friends. The rooms are actually suites with a separate sitting room/library and a huge bathroom with a clawfoot tub and stand up shower. I have stayed in...

We stayed 2 nights at "Spencer on Main". The Bed and Breakfast is a typical yellow wood house. Our room was really spacious, with a big bedroom (with a bed "in height", really confortable and original...) , a big bathroom (with bath and shower) and a tv/office room. The room was equiped with all modern accomodations we needed. Our guest...
