“A perfect haven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2011

There are few travel destinations in the world where everything is perfect: the atmosphere, the hosts, the setting, the decor, the landscaping, the food, the service, the welcoming perspective...everything, really. This is The Squire House. Everywhere you turn, the details of your experience (the beautiful linens, the darling night light in the bathroom, the mini sculpture in one of the many gardens on the property) combined with the hosts graciousness create an unparalleled experience. We will return to the Squire House again, and again, and again! It is perfect.

Loved my stay at the Squire House.The accommodations were absolutely top notch. Super comfy bed. Fireplace in the Bedroom. Delicious home made granola for breakfast. Roger and Gay, the Inn Keepers were a delight.
I've stayed in a lot of B&B's on the west coast and this Vermont was he top.

I have stayed at Squire House at least once a week since January 2011. Gay and Roger are terrific hosts, and they care deeply about their guests and meeting their needs. The rooms are impeccable, the facility is beautifully decorated and furnished, and the food is delicious. If you are in the Manchester/Dorset area, this is the place to stay.

Beautiful, warm, and serene are the three adjectives that best describe the Squire House. From the moment we drove up the long driveway, we knew we were in for a very special stay. The innkeepers, Gay and Roger, greeted us at the door, helped us with our luggage, and gave us a tour of the house. And what a house it is, from comfortable sitting areas to beautiful patio areas. We had chosen to stay in the Alice Wolcott Room, with its wood burning fireplace, numerous windows, and very clean bathroom. The furnishings are both exquisite, while being very functional at the same time.
The breakfast each morning was outstanding, Gay can open a Michelin star restaurant any time. Both Gay and Roger were very helpful in giving us local information regarding restaurants and driving direction to the Shelburne Museum. We just made a new reservation for an October visit, and cannot wait to return. Thank you, Gay and Roger.

Best Regards,

Margaret & Jay

My husband and I just left Squire House, after a winter weekend stay. Having traveled extensively, staying at B and B's, we can say with certainty Squire House is the finest, in all aspects. Gay and Roger, the innkeepers, are salt of the earth, intelligent, and service oriented, offering top notch recommendations, history of the area, and warm welcomes. Our comfort was their priority.
Their inn is a hidden gem in the hamlet of Dorset. We had several beautifully appointed, cozy sitting rooms to choose from to sit back, relax, read, and chat, in the comfort of glowing fireplaces, meticulously attended to. The breakfasts were simply gourmet, and spectacular. The attention to detail on all fronts left us feeling pampered, yet not intruding upon our privacy. The inn is large enough to afford private luxury in a magnificent setting.
For nature lovers, it is ideal. Unusual birds, unmarked walking trails, and miles of open space abound.
Our ride home was spent plotting and planning when we could return to Squire House!
Squire House is a must if you are planning on a stay in the Manchester area.

We had a lovely stay at Gay & Roger Squire's (yes, it's their last name!) bed and breakfast. It was like saying goodbye to dear friends when we reluctantly left. It is evident that they have carefully and considerately thought of what it takes to make a guest comfortable in their home. The linens, toiletries, turn-down, delicious gourmet breakfasts, tips on what to do in the area, all combine to make this the place to stay in Dorset. They were hospitable without being intrusive-the perfect combination.

Best stay we've ever had at a B&B. I've never bothered to leave a review before, but this B&B deserves special recognition. Food was great, rooms very nice, grounds were beautiful, and the location was perfect. Roger Squire even took us on a guided tour of the area. The Squires are the perfect hosts!
