The Aerie Inn, located in lovely East Dorset, is a motel-like structure set in a beautiful combination of meadow and woodlands. It was sold about eight months ago and a young couple are the new caretakers and hosts (along with two small dogs!) They have their work cut out for them as newcomers to the area and to Lodge-Keeping, but... More

Picture this: 8 soaking wet bikers (really just friendly motorcyclists) pull into your motel. What would you do; turn on the No Vacancy sign, lock the doors, call the local constabulary? Carol, the cheerful proprietor, greeted us warmly and ultimately volunteered to dry our wet clothes. We travel all over the east coast on bikes, and do our best to... More

This is the third time we had the pleasure of staying at the Aerie Inn -- and each time we have been blown away by the breathtaking views, pristine and comfortable rooms, and local knowledge and warmth of the inn's owner. We have tried many other places in the Manchester/Bennington/Northshire area, but this has become - by far - our... More

I just stayed here this past weekend to attend a conference at the Wilson House and was very pleased and satisfied. My friend and I were greeted promptly by Carol, the owner, with warmth and friendliness. Carol had coffee ready for both of us in the early a.m. both mornings and an offer of continental breakfast as well. Each of... More

I stayed here this week during a conference, and it was perhaps the best hotel/motel experience I have ever had (and I have been to many in my life). Carol is very upbeat and helpful to all her guests (even though I misplaced a room key, she was all smiles). We had some nice chats in the evening and her... More

Came here for a conference at the Wilson House. It's a 5 minute drive from there and about 15 minutes from Manchester, so really good location. It's just off the road, but tucked away into the mountains giving it a serene feel. I took a great hour walk nearby in the morning. I only spent one night, but it was... More

Dave, Thank you for your positive feedback. As the sign above the door at the Aerie states " enter as strangers, leave as friends". I remember like it was yesterday the night you showed up cold, wet, and on your motorcycle looking for your group, which was nowhere to be found,. We were able to get you a warm comfortable... More

Our host could NOT have been any more wonderful!! She was so helpful with information, directions, restaurant suggestions, even time and location to try to catch best... More
