I confess - i don't generally like BnB's; however, Etienne and Caroline really make such an enormous effort that its just hard not to like this place. The bedrooms are also wonderfully quirky and it really is a little bit like stepping into a museum. Etienne also showed us their solar panels in the back yard which my daughters enjoyed.... More

I have just spent my umpteenth night over more than a decade at Spencer on Main. Etienne and Caroline have become such good friends of mine that I will find any excuse I can to travel from South Carolina to Suffield! Wonderful house, great hosts, comfortable beds and an excellent breakfast. And, you must meet their Labrador, "Chopin" who lives... More

My wife and I have stayed in our share of BnB's, but this was the first time we've really felt like we were staying in a home. Truely. We felt like we dropped in to stay with an aunt or old family friend. Carolyn used to come here to visit her grandparents on the weekends, then raised her family here.... More

This was our first B&B stay and it was fantastic. The grounds were immaculate and the hosts were very personable. We loved the fact that the house was old and had lots of character and charm. When we walked through the house we reflected on the way life was in that era. Would recommend this B&B to anyone.

I returned with friends to our annual get away. I flew in from Fla. and was picked up at the airport and shortly whisked away to a beautiful yellow Victorian home meticulously cared for. It reminds me of something from a romance novel. The home has been in the family for many years and lovingly filled with antiques, fireplaces, and... More

Our girlfriends come here for an annual reunion, and it's as if we were in a spa resort. I especially love the gorgeous rooms, with elegant paintings, wallpapers, and beddings. One sleeps so well here. The bathrooms are luxuriously appointed, too. Who doesn't love being surrounded by historical pieces of Connecticut's past? It's refinement and luxury. And the breakfasts!

Every year or so I get together with high school friends and Spencer on Main is our weekend reunion spot of choice. It's easy to get to from NYC, and very near Bradley Airport; Etienne always insists on picking up my friend, no charge. No matter the season (summer is extra-great, with the pool), we always have a fabulous time... More

We stayed at Spencer on Main to attend a special event in the Suffield area. We were able to turn this into a New England get-away and mini vacation. Our hosts have created an elegant B&B. We slept in an antique four-poster bed with a lovely bathroom and a charming study / library, all as part of our bedroom suite.... More

Beautiful and historic property, meticulously maintained, exquisite furnishings, genial and attentive hosts. Antique furniture, spacious two-room suites, including sitting room/library. Elegant and relaxing breakfasts in charming and beautiful dining room. Outdoor pool, extensive collection of books on virtually every imaginable topic for perusal and inspiration.
