We went up June 2nd and 3rd for my granddaugthers christening. The owners were very friendly and made us feel welcome. We also had the christening party outside at the inn great place to relax and the owners were very accomadating. The room was private and quiet. I highly recommend the barnstead inn for a relaxing weekend.

Manchester Center, Vermont has access to mountains for skiing....Hildene - the former Summer home of Robert Todd Lincoln....Robert Frost's home where he wrote his most famous poem....Friends of Bill can visit his birthplace in E. Dorset and the humble burial spot for Bill and Lois to name just a few attractions and.....The Barnstead Inn! What a beautiful property....and the kindness and hospitality that were extended to me made my week's stay just superb and "itching" to get back to one of the most beautiful regions in all of Vermont. Thank you Neil! See you again soon. Donna P. Dunne

We went up over Memorial weekend and had a great time. Very nice owners, great Inn and lots of great food and shopping right up the street in Manchester. I highly recommend a stay at the Barnstead Inn.

We recently spent a long weekend at this inn. We stayed in the Green River Lodge suite. The room was extremely private and quiet. We never heard a sound the entire weekend, despite having other guests located in the same inn. We had breakfast at Up for Breakfast and dinner at Ye Olde Tavern (both excellent). Breakfast is not included at this Inn, but wanting to sleep in on Saturday, we brought in baked goods and fresh fruit/yogurt. The suite had a fridge, wine glasses, and a microwave.

Wonderful stay at the Barnstead, we loved the green river lodge room. The owners were very friendly and helpful. It even managed to snow for us, which was much appreciated during the mildest winter in recent history since we came to ski Stratton!

We enjoyed the proximity to town. Staff is friendly and efficient. Nice that they're welcoming of children.

Great breakfast place in town, btw: Up for Breakfast.
