I stayed with a friend at The Inn at Manchester again recently, after attending some music concerts at Tanglewood at Lenox, Massachusetts. It was the fourth time that I have stayed here and I have never been disappointed. The Inn's rooms are in two buildings on a large treed property in the village of Manchester on historic Route 7A; it is NOT in the larger city of Manchester in New Hampshire. The village remains small in scale but with a larger than usual proportion of good restaurants and interesting boutiques and shops and a concern for keeping the smaller scale and density and genuineness of the place.
The main building at the Inn is a grand house with a choice of several interesting rooms and groups of rooms, some smaller and others quite generous in size. Every room receives detailed attention daily by the staff. We stayed in a suite with a bedroom, a study with large couch and desk and satellite TV, and a bathroom with shower in the main house. There is a second building now next to the pool where new rooms have been developed with all the conveniences including jacuzzi and spacious accommodations. The large perfectly groomed grounds are open to guests including two large hammocks between three of the larger trees on the property.The open air swimming pool is remarkable for its scenic placement against the Green Mountains in the background and the care with which it is maintained. You experience no chlorine overdose in your eyes but it is treated each day to ensure its quality.
The owners, Frank and Julie Haynes, and their staff are always available to suggest great places to eat or things to do nearby. Frank cooks an interesting dish each morning for breakfast and he prepares eggs and bacon or sausages as you want, if you prefer not to have the main dish. Cereals, juices, and a selection of tea and coffee are always there.The paintings and gentile decor all reinforce the tranquility one finds at this Inn which everyone who stops here is, i find, reluctant to leave. I cannot recommend this Inn more highly for anyone who wants comfort, a hearty welcome, assistance with special requirements and a tranquility that removes you from the stress of city life. You know as soon as you drive up the circular drive to the main house that this is a special place to be savoured and appreciated. Submitted by Peter Howden, Barrie, Ontario, August 3,2012.
