My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Manor on Golden Pond. I was delighted with how friendly the staff was from my initial phone call to reserve the room. When we arrived the Innkeepers were very helpful giving us a short tour of the inn and even taking the time to print directions to local attractions and confirm hours of operation.
We stayed in the Avon room and were very happy with the amenities including large comfortable bed and huge jacuzzi (complete with a rubber ducky, bath salts and a bath mitt!). The water pressure in the shower wasn't the greatest and the room was a little hot during the night, but other than that we were very pleased. Another nice touch was a welcome letter awaiting us in our room customized with our names!
The food was to die for...and the setting was very romantic. We were there duirng the off-season so the inn was very quiet and we were one of two couples in the entire dining room. I escpecially liked the after dinner chocolate covered strawberries given to us to take to our room and the warm cookies that awaited us after our turndown service! For breakfast, my boyfriend commented that the French Toast "was the best he's ever had" and proceeded to order it every morning we were there!
Overall, I would definitely recommend the Manor on the Golden Pond to New England travelers. To be honest, I was surprised by some of the negative reviews I read. Our experience was completely different...not sure if the Inn has improved considering some of the more negative reviews were from a few years ago.
We reserved the off-season Spring Special so our incredible dinner and breakfast were included for $249/night. The dinner special did not include drinks or gratuity...but it wasn't a big deal for us considering we don't typically order alcoholic beverages. I definitely feel as though we got our money's worth. Not sure I would pay the average $385+/night rate for a high-season weekend, but I will certainly keep my eyes peeled for future inn specials!! I would love to return in the fall or summer when more of the local attractions are open.
