North Shire Lodge & Mountain View Pub
Ranked #1 of 12 Manchester B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 17, 2013

We took the family (from Atlanta) to Vermont to see Manchester, Sarasota and the surrounding area. The North Shire Lodge is charming, well maintained, and located just down the road from the Equinox hotel. The views at the lodge are great, full sliding glass doors to see the mountains, and a great pub / bar area for breakfast (included) and other meals if desired. We had dinner on the outside deck one night, just beautiful. We felt very welcomed by the inn-keepers who pride themselves on the lodge, the service, bartending (ask for 'The Last Word' drink), and excellent local cooking. There is a pool, but there was so much to do in the area we did not have time to jump in. You MUST do the skyline drive which takes you to the top of the mountain behind the hotel, truly amazing and great views - awesome visitor center at the top with very interesting story about the monks who own the mountain... we will be back again to the North Shire Lodge!

Room Tip: Higher room numbers are closer to the mountain...

North Shire Lodge is in a nice location, very close to the toll road on which you drive to the summit of the nearby mountain. Rooms have a nice view. Our room was clean and comfortable, but it certainly wasn't "special". For the price, I think it was a very fair deal. The room felt a little old and could be updated. My wife thought the bed was just right, but I thought the mattress was too firm. We had three breakfasts; one was awesome, one was good (not amazing), and one was average. I do like what they did with the pub. The innkeepers are a nice couple, very friendly and helpful. They take good care of their property. I would recommend this B&B, because it's a good value and gets the most important stuff right. I was neither impressed nor disappointed, if that makes sense. It didn't feel like an especially romantic B&B, but it felt perfect for families or groups.

Room Tip: The rooms I saw looked very similar. No special recommendations.

On a weekend getaway to Manchester VT, my husband and I chose to stay at the North Shire Lodge based on other Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Our room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Tim and Kerry were extremely friendly and knowledgeable hosts. The view from our room was great. And then there was breakfast! The first morning it was a wonderful veggie frittata. The second day an apple Dutch Baby. Both were delicious. We had a great, affordable trip, and will definitely be back!

Thanks so much for the great review! We think that our breakfast may be one of the best kept secrets of the North Shire Lodge. We work hard to provide a unique and delicious breakfast to all of our guests. Thank you so much for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon.

We have stayed at the North Shire many times since discovering this little gem in 2010. Our most recent weekend visit was with my husband, myself and another couple. Our room was, as usual, spotless and the view is amazing. The Inn-keepers, Kerry & Tim are friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a delicious home cooked breakfast each morning and amazing drinks at the private pub at night. The atmosphere is always so relaxing and fun! We enjoyed talking with Tim at the pub and hanging out with the other guests. We are sad to leave every time and always look forward to returning!

This is something I don't usually do but I feel it bears repeating! This was my second stay and second review of the North Shire Lodge and this stay was better than the last one! Which is pretty great because the last stay was near perfect! We arrived on Friday afternoon with another couple to find our rooms ready and spotless. They added some excellent comfy chairs in the room which you can sit in for hours and gaze out the gorgeous mountain side. The owners were quick to help us decide on a great place to eat and invite us into the pub after our dinner. We spent hours at the private pub enjoying the most AMAZING martinis and all the other guests. We were treated to a great home cooked breakfast both mornings. This hotel is the perfect mix of bed and breakfast and hotel. Like I said last time I can't wait to go back and hopefully I don't have to wait a year! If your staying in the Manchester area look no further!

We recently spent a very relaxing weekend at the North Shire Lodge & Mountain View Pub. this was not our first visit to the North Shire and it was as good as we remembered. The rooms were comfortable and very clean. Breakfast was included with the the room and was very good. Staff was friendly and welcoming. The North Shire is affordable and a perfect spot to stay - close to Manchester and many surrounding areas. Hope to return again soon. Denise & Larry

Just got home from another wonderful and restful weekend at the North Shire Lodge, conveniently located about 5 minutes from downtown Manchester. Tim and Kerry are super friendly and very knowledgeable about the various attractions available in the area. Rooms are very clean, beds are comfortable and rooms have nice amenities like wifi, flat screen TV with DVD player (free DVD lending library in the lobby), refrigerator and a little coffee maker. This is a quiet, peaceful lodge with beautiful views of the mountains from every room. Since our last visit, they've added a hot breakfast -- there's a little sign in the lobby each day telling you what tomorrow morning's breakfast will be, and there's also a sheet to sign up for your breakfast time and make note of any dietary restrictions you may have. The advantage to this sign-up system is that when you go to the dining area, breakfast is served within a few minutes without you having to order or wait around; very nice if you want to get out to the ski slopes asap. All rooms are non-smoking and pet-free. Finally, a note to people who haven't visited Manchester in a while -- the notorious Malfunction Junction intersection has now been replaced with a traffic circle! Getting through town is a breeze now, making the North Shire Lodge an even more convenient place to stay. Thank you for a great weekend -- we can't wait to come back!
