ENOSBURG FALLS — The Quincy Hotel, on Depot Street, is now accepting reservations — progress,
depending on how you look at it, either two years or more than 100 in the making.
One of the rooms at the renovated Quincy Hotel.
Betsy Dorminy owns the hotel. But she speaks about it with the keen awareness that she does not own
its history, that she is, in a sense, a deeply welcome guest there.
Wandering the Quincy’s seven guest rooms with Dorminy — four double rooms and three two-room
suites — is like an elegant archaeological expedition.
She pointed out a wooden ceiling, discovered when the renovators peeled back broken plaster,
subsequently restored and left alone. A restroom that was, in the building’s original layout, the
“gentlemen’s toilet” — the “ladies’ toilet,” Dorminy noted, was on the other side of the door.
