This Inn is very well kept. Our room was clean and had everything we needed. They were serving dinner on the night we stayed. It was very tasty and it was so nice to not have to go find a place to eat after a long day's drive.

We stayed in early October and just loved everything about this place! From our first view when we drove up at night to see all the welcoming bonfires, to the drinks from the bar, the beautiful room (ours was the Equinox) and picturesque setting. Everyone was so kind and welcoming and both breakfasts we had were DELICIOUS. It was exactly what we were looking for during our 2 nights in Vermont. Thanks for a great stay!

What an amazing time we had for our second visit! Andrea and the rest of the staff make it such a comfortable place to be and truly feel like friends of ours. It is incredibly well kept, many areas recently remodeled, and the overall atmosphere of the property is exactly what you want when staying in Manchester, VT. Cannot wait to go back!!

Every place where we interacted with staff and the facility was perfect. The property is located a very short walk from "downtown" and we were glad it came recommended, and pleased that we did not overlook this inn for another property along the more visible RT 7A. Rooms are delightfully updated, Bed was very comfortable. The included breakfast was a combination of a plated entree with self serve items...which proved to be the perfect combination of elegance and convenience. The grounds, fire pit, outdoor seating and bar were all welcoming, but most importantly, the staff was customer focused, and easy going, offering the perfect balance of service, and gracious hosting.

I pretty much knew from the minute I saw the website that this place was special. From the beautiful gardens to the rooms, the attention to detail is impressive. Rich, deep colors, eclectic pieces of art and rooms that scream "cozy" (soft lighting under the bed!)make for a hard to leave environment. The staff seem to truly enjoy thier work and went above and beyond to help which was a major relief when my husband recquired some medical attention. Breakfast was wondferul as was the environment in which it was served. The pool an added plus especially since we were there during a heat wave. Highly recommend.

Thank you! You 2 were delightful to have, and I am so glad your husband was just overheated and was not more serious. We love renovating and redecorating all the rooms to a farmhouse modern feel where it is clean and comfortable with a trendy feel. I've been known to even call the mood lighting a little intimate or "sexy," haha. We hope to have you again soon, enjoy some pop up social events, good music, good food and outgoing atmosphere! Have a great rest of your summer <3
