We got a smaller room that turned out to be great. It was very cozy without being too overly decorated with chatchkas and the like that similar hotels/B and B's are known for. The gardens were well done and provided an oasis for us just down the road from Manchester (or Manchester Center...I can't remember). Bathroom was immaculate and the... More

My husband and I have become regular guests here and would not consider any other Inn when traveling to Vermont. Neil is the best and is personable, helpful and always available if needed. We love the Green River room which is very romantic and private. The location is perfect too and close to local hiking, winter activities, shops, restaurants and... More

After spending one unsatisfactory night at another Inn, we found The Barnstead Inn after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. I am happy to say that The Barnstead was everything we had hoped it would be. We stayed in one of their recently renovated suites that had a separate living room with small kitchenette, pull out couch, flatscreen TV and gas... More

The Barnstead Inn is truly my favorite personal getaway. The owners are wonderful, kind, helpful, personalable and so accommodating. I have stayed at the Inn too many times to count. Each time I visit, I have the most relaxing stay --- whether it is with my husband, sister or just some time away for myself. The Inn is so so... More

We stayed here recently when we were in town and it was wonderful. There was only one other couple at the inn while we were there since they had just reopened for the season. We stayed in the Green River guest room which had a fire place, a king size bed, and two of the most comfortable chairs I've ever... More

Clean, cozy and comfortable. A unique Inn designed, built and owned by a true Vermonter! If you like the pictures, you will love staying here. Neil and Cindy will make it special, take it from another true Vermonter! Chris & Lynn A

My husband and I were able to get away for just an overnight to The Barnstead Inn this past very snowy weekend, and we enjoyed another wonderful get-a-way at this charming and rustic Inn. The Inn has, I think, 14 rooms, and each has charm and uniqueness that make it a true Vermont hide-a-way full of modern amenities. Our room... More

Recently visited Manchester over Christmas and we all were really pleased with the Barnstead Inn. Super friendly, clean, near town and authentically Vermont. Nice spacious rooms. Neil and Cindy made our Christmas Eve very special.

Spent 1 night at the Barnstead Inn during our tour of USA & Canada which we found to be a pleasant experience, the room was spacious and clean and the location is only a short walk from the centre of Manchester which has a selection of designer shops - if this is your thing! .

This is our 5th trip to Manchester and our 3rd stay in a row at the Barnstead Inn. We love the feel of the Inn, the property, the room, the furnishings, the proximity to town... love it all! The hosts are terrific. We like the rooms with the gas fireplace, but you can't go wrong with any of the rooms.
