We have been staying in the Arlington/Manchester area for over 30 years. The last 13 have been spent at North Shire Lodge. We absolutely love the location, excellent food and the owners. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. Tim and Kerry treat us like family. The views are beautiful and the new gardens pleasing to enjoy. The breakfasts (which are included) far surpass any other restaurant or home cooking we have experienced. The pub menu has a great variety of excellent dishes. Not to be missed - one (or more) of Tim's fantastic drinks. In other words, North Shire has it all!

Room Tip: We personally love the king size beds but, having stayed in several different rooms, any one is grea...

It's been years since my wife and I were up in Vermont (without our kids) so we decided to venture up north again. While looking for accommodations, she found the web site for North Shire Lodge. We booked three nights (9/13-16). On their web site one is able to view the interior of each of their 14 rooms, along with its view of the mountains. How cool is that ! Arriving late Friday evening, we found the lodge and checked in. We were greeted by Tim, who informed us about signing up for breakfast (which is included in the price of the room) on a chart near the front desk. Saturday morning we went to their cozy pub, which is for guests only, and had a delicious Vermont scrambled egg with cornbread breakfast. After a day of visiting breweries, wineries and country stores, we returned that evening and decided to have a cocktail at the pub. The menu for the drinks was enormous. But being in Vermont, we focused for a drink including maple. All we will say is to ask Tim to make you his "signature" maple drink (I forget the name, probably because I had two of them). The following morning breakfasts were just as delicious. Rooms were very clean and quiet, even though a number of guests for a nearby wedding stayed and seemed to fill many of the rooms. Overall, my wife and I were very pleased with our stay. Lastly, on returning to Connecticut, wer realized my wife forgot two sweaters in the room, so we called up and Kerry, Tim's wife, was very accommodating in our request to return the sweaters via the mail. Thanks again for a great time.

Room Tip: Make sure you visit their web site and view pictures of each room and its view

We absolutely love the North Shire Lodge. It’s a humble beautiful place on a hill set back from the street. Lovely landscaping well maintained. The management is very friendly and helpful. The room is immaculately clean and beautifully decorated with typical Vermont country style pictures and a high beamed ceiling. The bed/bedding is extremely comfortable, the furnishings like new. In the back of the room we step outside through a sliding glass door and stand on top of the hill with a view of acres and acres of green lawn, and fields, and a beautiful view of the mountains. There’s a gorgeous little rock garden with Black Eyed Susies and a meditation bench. You can sit out in the middle of the lawn on a bench enjoying the sunshine, or you can enjoy the view from under the shade of one of the maples. We find it extremely relaxing and peaceful. We enjoyed their delicious home cooked breakfasts in the morning, something different each day. They have a cozy dining area, an extremely well stocked bar area, a patio for dining outside, all with the same beautiful view. We also enjoyed their DVD library. We’ve visited on two occasions; we just visited for our 39th wedding anniversary, and have plans to visit again for our winter getaway, and our 40th.

Back for another stay at this splendid hybrid motel/B&B, run by a delightful, low-keyed couple.

The rooms are good-sized and quiet. Each room has not one, but two good reading chairs. Beds are excellent. Wifi is excellent. Breakfast is excellent. Best of all are the views, of the rolling Vermont hills. Though this establishment is on a rural highway (Route 7A), the sounds of traffic are almost nonexistent.

There is also an onsite, affordable restaurant, open in the evenings to guests and their friends: good food, cosy colonial decor, informal atmosphere.

Manchester shopping, complete with a fine bookstore, is just a few miles up the road.

Keep this place a secret!

We have stayed at the North Shire Lodge in Manchester, VT for the 4th year in a row. We love it there. There is a large field for the kids to play. There is also an outdoor pool which we have all enjoyed. Kerry and Tim also offer dinner several nights during the week (by reservation only) which they prepare themselves. We have only stayed there in the Summer. We are not skiers, but would recommend the North Shire for the winter as well.

I've been staying here for 3 years now during the Vermont Summer Festival. Why? I like the low rates, hot breakfast, free dvd selection, nice bedding, cleanliness, lovely pool, views and quiet as it is a few miles south of the town. Most of all I always enjoy one of Tim's 145 martini choices and pub burgers in their little, cute pub seemingly just for the 12 guest rooms. They know how to give you a real Vermont stay experience.

Room Tip: I think I've stayed in all the room, lol. If it's just me, I like the king rooms best.
