We have been vacationing in New England for almost 40 years. This is by far our favorite location. Tim and Kerry are always friendly and helpful. The food is excellent and the extensive bar lacks nothing! Having stayed in various rooms over the past 14 years, we have no complaints about any of them or the beautiful views. We find... More

Our close group of friends has come here each year for the last six or seven years to stay, eat, drink, be merry, ski at Stratton, and enjoy this home away from home. Tim and his wife are wonderful and on point with the food and drink. The lounge is a gem--I always marvel at the piano table and have... More

This was an interesting place. I'm still not sure how I feel about after nearly 8 months. It is located outside of Manchester VT so it is pretty quiet. It is an old motel that has been converted into a "bed and breakfast". The rooms are fairly spacious but the bathroom is quite small. Everything seems just a bit worn... More

We’re proud that with our 249 Trip Advisor reviews, 232 of them rated us Excellent or Very Good. You’re one of just 13 who thought we were average. We’re busy... More

We stayed one night at the North Shire Lodge. The room was comfortable. The breakfasts (Dutch baby and frittata) were delicious.The owner was very friendly and had really helpful input regarding places to visit (and places not to visit). Would definitely return.

Another fantastic stay . A warm greeting upon arrival, clean room and bathroom and a comfortable bed. Fantastic view of snow covered trees from the room and pub. Perfect breakfast of Dutch Apple pancakes and a friendly visit to the Pub. Close to Bromley for skiing . Thanks to Kerry and Tim for a great ski weekend

Having read so many excellent reviews on Tripadvisor, our expectations were indeed very high & Tim had been very helpful during the booking stage. So it was a huge disappointment that on arrival Kerry greeted us by surname, no real welcome, asked us to sign in and then demanded our outstanding payment immediately. The much talked about pub, for guests... More

Thanks so much for staying with us. We encourage our guests to book with us directly, over the phone or from our own web site, so that the customer service is in our hands, not some call center in another country. Unfortunately you booked online with Booking.com and found that their service was lacking, but ours was not. Sorry if... More

We have stayed here three times in last three years. The rooms are basic but very comfortable and clean with a beautiful view. The location is great for skiing, hiking and/or shopping. A delicious homemade breakfast is served each morning. Tim handles the pub in the evening and can whip up any libation you desire. We love the friendly, casualness... More

Rooms are clean and spacious, updated, and the views of the Manchester valley and Mount Equinox are stunning. It is in a great location, a quick drive from downtown Manchester, roughly 6 miles.
