Spruce Hill Inn & Cottages

Reviewed 3 January 2017

First, the owners cannot control what some punk does in the middle of the night. In full transparency, there was an incident in one of their buildings two nights before we stayed, they owner openly spoke about it and offered a refund since we had kids. We stayed anyways, would do it again! We met the owner and wife and they were extremely accomodating and helpful. We stayed in the two queen cottage, $200/night on weekends, little cheaper on weekdays. We asked to check in early as we had kids and wanted to hit the snow next door at Snow Trails early. They had us in by 1130 which gave a great chance to get our day started. The room was comfy and warm all weekend, kids loved the jacuzzi tub, flat screen to watch NYE football games at night, fresh towels, microwave, stove, coffee pot with coffee, creamer sugar, mini fridge, clean sheets, clean bathroom, and a clean kitchen. The location to Snow Trails was perfect as we enjoyed the NYE party and didn't have to worry about driving. We will be back.
Nothing is perfect, these are cottages in the woods, so spiders exist. I squished a tiny one and flushed him. Wifi didn't work and is an extra fee, if accessible (free wifi seems like a good idea to me).

We decided to give this place a 2nd try in a smaller cottage as it was next to a snow resort we were going to. BAD IDEA! No personal check in, SMELLS from a musty jaccuzi tub, Active spiderwebs, doors that did not close and lock properly, Garbage all over out side and rotten bananas off the front porch. Microwave was Broken too.

After we had been there for hours, we found out the Large house across the drive had been involved in a 5 person shooting during an underage party. POLICE TAPE and all. There was no notice to us this had even happened 36 hours before we arrived. When we asked about it we were blown off. Never again and STAY AWAY until they get it together there. The place has great potential and is very scenic, but there is little concern for the facilities.

This was the 3rd time we have stayed here and it's always been clean and quite. The cabins are just the right size for two people. The only 2 minor complaints I would have are the following, one the Tv was small and the old style but that didn't bother our visit at all, and two the room smelled of moth balls. I bought a candle and that took care of that I would recommend this place to others and I'm sure we will be back

We stayed for two nights on a special "two for one" offer, while visiting Malabar Farm (about 7 miles down the road, an easy drive). This is a very pretty hillside collection of duplex cottages, plus a manor house (Victorian) and a sort of a ski lodge, all available for rental. It is next door to the Snow Trails ski slope.

The cottages are very attractive, with skylights & ceiling fans, decorated in shades of sage and lavender -- the photos do not do them justice. We had an exceptionally comfortable bed! and sliding doors leading to a private deck. One of the best features is a HUGE modern bathroom with a giant jacuzzi tub -- what a pleasure! Whatever the source of hot water, it is abundant (in the past, we'd had jacuzzi tubs that never filled completely without running out of hot water). There is also a regular shower. We went in late September, but that jacuzzi must be pure heaven after a day on the slopes.

There are 14 duplex cottages, or 28 units. 7 are by the manmade pond in the middle, 3 by the road and 4 more are up the hill. If we come again, I'll ask for one up the hill -- more quiet and private and wooded than the others. However, they are all identical. You have a choice of one side with a deck, or the other has a bay addition that might hold an extra bed, futon or sitting area. Each unit has a "micro kitchen" with sink, microwave, mini-fridge, coffeemaker and toaster, plus silverware and mugs. There are some units with a small stove.

Amazingly this all looks & feels like you are in the remotest forest, yet it is literally 2 miles from the I-71 exit (Mansfield), which has all the usual fast food, a Walmart, Applebees, etc.

There were a few roughspots: our first night, a large group of fishermen rented 5 cottages, and threw a huge party for their friends (maybe 40 guys) drinking and partying. Hopefully this is not a typical occurrence. The noise and mess were disconcerting, to say the least (though our cottage was soundproofed enough, we heard and saw nothing so long as we stayed INSIDE). Fortunately they left early the next day. Once they were gone, it was peaceful and lovely. There are woods and plenty of places to walk. We had a dog, and this was a great, pet friendly stay.

Be aware that there is little or NO cellphone reception -- we had to drive to Walmart to pick up a signal! and no room phones or even a pay phone on the property. This was a little unnerving (what if there was an emergency?). There is also no wi fi, but I assume you are going for peace & quiet, not internet.

The cottages are one large bedroom, with a queen bed and a futon/sofa. I guess you could squeeze 3 folks in here, but frankly, it is for couples. I think a couple with young children would feel a bit claustrophobic. But for just two, it is romantic and relaxing.

There is no restaurant or food service, but as I said, plenty of eateries just 3 minutes away and some who deliver to the property. And it feels very woodsy & private.

Close to Mohican State Park, and the famous Malabar Farm State Park, as well as maybe 10 minutes from downtown Mansfield (which has a wonderful merry-go-round on public square).

Room Tip: If you have a choice, go for cottages 121-128 -- up the hill, in a beautiful wooded section -- and n...

While in Mansfield we stayed at the Manor House at Spruce Hill. It was large enough for our entire family-- 12 in all! It is always hard to find a place for that many under one roof! The Manor House was the largest of a number of cottages in a quiet, lovely area by Snow Trails. We loved the back patio with the fire pit for some-mores and the great area for all the kids to play. Family from the area joined us in the evenings for conversation on the back patio so it holds lots of people! We appreciated that the kitchen was so well equipped - we prepared a luncheon for 100 people for a 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration in the kitchen. I was worried that what I needed would not be there but it was. Our hostess was very nice and gracious. This is a great place to stay!!
