Well, almost.... We have only stayed at one bed and breakfast before so we don't have much to compare it to but...... I booked a suite for a co-worker and I for a conference at Burr and Burton and at the last minute my husband was able to come too. The home is the actual home that the Ethan and Ira Allen lived in. Kevin, Tracy, Mike, and Tim are the owners who take pride in their home and welcome you every morning and evening with a smile on their faces. Since we don't have much to compare it to I will say if you are looking for a relaxing base for business or pleasure in the Manchester area with personable touches in the rooms, delicious food, and friendly guest service you can't ask for a better place. The details, from the home made yogurt, the fresh local food, the high quality linen, and the home made cookies that await you after a long day out, all tie together an experience that will be hard to forget. The recommendations for fishing for my husband and day trips that he enjoyed while we were working were also very helpful. The area is rich with history and these guys were able to head him in the right direction for exploring the community. Thanks for the fresh bacon, the home made blueberry coffee cake, the chocolate cookies with cherries, the apricot thumb print cookies, and the granola on the yogurt. Top class place!
