My wife and I traveled to Manchester, VT last weekend and stayed at the Barnstead Inn on a recommendation from a friend. When we arrived, we were immediately struck by how well the grounds were kept and how quaint the property and the buildings were. We originally booked the Witherall Farm Room, but Neal surprised us at check in by... More

The Barnstead Inn was a lovely place to stay. The owners were very accommodating of our schedule as we had to arrive late and leave late; they worked with our schedule with no complaints at all. The rooms (we rented two adjacent rooms) were clean, comfortable and large. Overall, high recommended.

The Barnstead Inn opened for the season a little early to accommodate an influx of travelers in Manchester for a conference. So, they went from mud season closure to a full house for the weekend. Very pleasant rooms, check the website for good pics of each one. Some have a cathedral ceiling, others do not. We had a ground floor... More

Thank you for your review. The Barnstead Inn was actually closed for three weeks for updates and to visit a son for Easter. (It's much easier to do updates with no one here). While we were not accepting guests during that time we were closed merely for updating. Windows were replaced. All new beds installed and some minor updates. You... More

We just had a return visit to the Barnstead Inn of Manchester. It was again a wonderful experience that we are happy to share. We were in the Doc Fisher room on the first floor-quaint, clean, quiet and charming, overlooking a small brook and a lovely scenic landscape. One thing we have come to love as we visit this Inn...

We love this place. Room was beautifully done. Quiet and cozy. They had a cancellation and upgraded our room to the gorgeous Green River Lodge room at no additional cost. The owner was more than gracious and helpful. We will go back.

Really enjoyed our stay at the Barnstead inn. An icy rain had left the hill in the parking lot slippery, and the owner came out to meet us at our car with a room key to an upgraded suite to keep us from ever having to walk the hill. The room was extremely comfortable with a fireplace, refrigerator, and its... More

the Barnstead Inn is right outside of Manchester. The rooms are big and clean. The beds are comfortable. The owner is friendly. We stayed here 10 years ago and it was just as nice now. The convenient location and charm make this a place we will come back to.

Loved this place. The room has a separate entrance, with a gas fireplace and very cozy. The owner is friendly and helpful. If the place went on sale I would buy it. Thanks for the really nice staying.

My husband and I just stayed at the Barnstead Inn for the second time and we love it! This charming inn is a quick 5-10 minute walk into the beautiful town of Manchester. The inn is clean and quiet and set-up so that even when it's full, you have a complete sense of privacy and peace and quiet. If you... More

This inn is about the most unique place you'll stay at while in Vermont. So much history coupled with modern amenities to make you feel warm and welcome. The innkeepers are extremely friendly and helpful locals who are chock full of tips for dinner recommendations and things to see and do. The rooms are spotless clean. Close enough to walk... More
