“As good as it gets”
Reviewed 7 July 2011

After many winter/ski visits , we finally made a summer visit. The grounds were more beautiful and spacious then we realized. We enjoyed the pool area, picinic table and sitting in the evening enjoying the Mountain View. Dinner @ the Hotels provate pub Thursday night was excellent, and resonably priced. We had a pleasant time talking to Tim and Kerry( the owners) while relaxing in the pub. As always the rooms were as clean as can be, and enjoyed watching a dvd on the rooms dvd player. The wireless internet signal was strong, and the bed comfortable. We visited nearby Hildene(the Lincoln estate) and found it to be an excellent attraction.
Sumer visits will now be a regular occurance

Sitting on a hilltop, with beautiful views of the mountains, and immaculate rooms with all the amenities one could want to enjoy a long weekend, or a week of tranquil vacation. Minutes from picturesque Manchester, with streams and mountain hiking trails just a few miles away.
The Mountainview Pub is a cozy place to relax and has a top flight bar, as well as excellent home-cooked meals; with service that exceeds your expectations.
We'll keep coming back!

We love the North Shire Lodge! We have stayed there just about every year for the past ten years! The owners, who we can now call our friends after staying there so often, have made incredible upgrades to the rooms, lobby, and the new pub! The pub is a nice place to relax and have dinner...or even just an appetizer! The food is all so great! The views in the whole place (in the pub and rooms) are amazing as it sits atop a hill and looks out at the mountains.

The rooms at the North Shire Lodge are always immaculate. We have seen the same friendly housekeeper there for the whole ten years that we have been coming. You can tell she takes pride in her work there – we have even heard other guests talk about how clean the rooms are! The rooms are always being upgraded as we have seen over the years. And you get many many channels on the tv. A refrigerator and microwave are in the rooms plus a vcr and dvd player - and you can check out movies for free from the lobby!

We continually go back to the North Shire Lodge. Up on a quiet hill, it is the perfect setting for a New England get away, which coming from the heat of the Florida flat lands is so very enjoyable! Whether we go in the fall for the foliage season or in the summer, the North Shire Lodge is where we stay!

Room Tip: All rooms are great w/ beautiful views!

All of the comforts of home, in a quiet area just outside of downtown Manchester. The view of the Green Mountains is amazing. Many trails nearby for use in the fall, spring, and summer. Multiple mountains close by for skiing or snowboarding in the winter. Short ride to downtown Manchester. Great pub on site. Best of all - the owners are incredibly friendly, helpful, and hospitable. You can't go wrong in choosing the North Shire.

I've stayed at the North Shire at least twice a year for the last several years. I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. The rooms are large and clean and the Inn Keepers are very particular about the cleanliness of the entire property. The lodge is set back on the property and I've always found it to be a quiet and peaceful place to stay.
I love the Pub. The best martinis I've ever had have been here and the food is always good, maybe a little too good! I highly recommend staying at the North Shire anytime of year and have recommended it to several friends.

Loved this lodge! It was very conveniently located with incredible mountain views! I was surprised by how clean it was for the value. The owners are very nice and the service was really good. The pub is a nice addition and has a cute and comfortable decor. The food was good and reasonably priced compared to other restaurants in the town. My husband and I had a good time and will definitely be back next year!
