My husband and I have been guests at Spencer-on-Main on two different occasions. We can’t sing enough praises of this restful, elegant and charming Bed and Breakfast, which has consistently exceeded our highest expectations. In fact, calling Spencer-on-Main a B&B doesn't begin to do it justice. It's a grand, stately and inviting home. Our hosts, Caroline and Etienne are extremely...

This beautiful historic home has been in family of inn keeper Caroline for many generations, and for her and her husband, Etienne, running it is obviously a labor of love. The home is a huge Victorian that is little changed, it seems, from the 1800's. Walking through the main hall and up the sweeping staircase is like walking back in...

We cannot thank our gracious hosts, Caroline and Etienne , enough for sharing their elegant home. Every aspect of the stay was delightful, and the Delices De La Nuit suite was spectacular.

Visiting from London for a wedding we stayed at Spencer on Main for 3 nights. We had a simply wonderful stay. Absolute treat to stay in such a well maintained historic building with charming and helpful hosts. Rooms are spotlessly clean and along with the rest of the house they are maintained to a 5* standard. Breakfasts are served in...

We arrived on Friday afternoon for three nights hoping that we'd found a place (based upon earlier reviews that we'd read) where we could revitalize ourselves. We were not disappointed and join in the kudos previously expressed by others. This B&B has charm and warmth, in large part due to the innkeepers, Caroline and Etienne. It was as if we'd...

Relied on the Trip Advisor reviews and booked a one night stay for a recent visit to Hartford and was not disappointed. As advertised, the owners Caroline and Etienne were extremely gracious hosts and were welcoming, accommodating, professional and genuinely warm people. Suffield is a pleasant village with handsome architecture, enough services, etc and is a very pleasant and relaxed...

I feel so refreshed, relaxed and reinvigorated after spending the weekend at Spencer on Main. Between the luxurious beddings, elegantly appointed rooms and every little detail attended to, this treasure of an inn makes you feel like you are the most important person in the world. After a day on the go, there was nothing like coming back to my...

Etienne and Caroline are wonderful hosts. I've stayed at Spencer on Main several times over the past couple of years. From the very first stay, I felt comfortable and so welcome. The furnishings are gorgeous, bathrooms spotless, and beds super comfortable. I always sleep so well at this place. In the morning, breakfast is a delight. Etienne has made his...

My husband and I just celebrated our anniversary by spending a weekend at Spencer on Main. We absolutely loved it--from making the reservation through check out, everything was just perfect. The house is gorgeous, beautifully restored and decorated, and spotlessly clean. We stayed in the Bird in the Nest Suite, which had an extremely comfortable king-size bed and an enormous...

As this was a second marriage for my fiancee and I, we choose to elope and decided on Connecticut for the destination. In our internet search fate guided us to Spencer on Main. Our original plan was to simply find the Town Hall and a Justice of the Peace, however when speaking with our host, Etienne, when he learned of...
