it was almost perfect--the room (Churchill) was lovely--the view of the lake, wood-burning fireplace , jacuzzi tub with candles, bath salts and the large thick towels...the dinner (tastings menu) and wine were delicious--afternoon tea and morning coffee with to go cups...attention to most details by the owners and yet...NOT EVEN EYE CONTACT! NO SMILE OR GREETING "we are glad you are here" (spending hundreds of dollars with us this weekend)...NOTHING!
We sat in the lounge after a day of exploring NH--ready to order a glass or bottle of wine--NOTHING. After 30 minutes or more, we walked to the bar, ordered our wine and went to our room.
Although the owners could not ruin our much anticipated weekend in NH, we certainly will not return to the Manor or recommend it to our friends or the parents who will be attending Dartmouth football games the next 4 years.
Brian and Mary Ellen Shields have invested in restoring the Manor but have failed in the art of hospitality. What a shame.
