“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We chose North Shire motel for a friends weekend to Vermont! It was a wonderful choice. Can't wait to go back. The owners were very kind, and made us feel as if we were visiting family. The food was delicious, as were the drinks served in the pub, and the pub was very cozy and inviting. We used the pool, enjoyed a wonderful dinner, and finished with a movie from the extensive movie library. The beds were very comfortable, and breakfast in the morning was the best!!!!! A perfedt place to stay.

Room Tip: All of the rooms have a beautiful view, and I am sure are as perfect as ours was.

We have been going to to the Northshire for years ( both summer and winter) and always have a wonderful time .Tim and Kerry do a great job with the rooms ( spacious and clean) as well as the breakfast ( always fresh and delicious) and the pub . A free to borrow DVD collection is appreciated as well. In the summer a hike around Equinox lake or a ride to the old quarry and in the winter skiing at Bromley.Plenty of dinner notions including the Pub right there.
I could go on and on but it always ends up with " excellent"

Thanks so much for your kind review. Glad you enjoy our breakfasts. Bon Appetit Magazine just called us for a 2nd time about one of your favorite breakfasts here - looks like we have a good shot at being in the October issue ! Always a pleasure to serve you.

We travel to VT every year or so to visit family and we always look forward to staying at the Northshire. It is very obvious that Tim and Kerry take great pride in the Northshire and care about their guests. The rooms are always extremely clean every time we have visited and the view is truly beautiful. I really enjoyed getting my cup of cinnamon coffee in the morning and sitting out back watching the clouds move through the mountains. The included breakfast is excellent -- freshly prepared from scratch. Beds are very comfortable. Attention to detail is remarkable. Finally, the innkeepers -- Tim and Kerry -- are very friendly and helpful. We can't wait until we come back next year!

Every year we look forward to the Manchester Car Show because we just love our stay at the North Shire Lodge. Tim & Kerry always make us feel like family. The rooms are spacious and very clean and comfortable. The grounds and views of the mountains are beautiful. We truly enjoy relaxing in their Pub and have never had anything less than delicious food, fabulous drink selections and superb hospitality. We won't stay anywhere else in the area.

Thanks Tim! I just checked and you've been staying with us since 2004 for the car show. We really appreciate your support! It is always fun to have you here and to serve you in the evenings in our Pub. You'll always have a room available with us for the car show. See you next year!

My husband and I decided to spend a romantic weekend getaway in Vermont. We liked North Shire lodge because is a combination of a motel and bed and breakfast. We enjoy the privacy a motel has to offer and also enjoy the cozy environment of a bed and breakfast. The rooms were clean and spacious. Breakfast was good and staff very friendly and helpful.

So happy you enjoyed your stay. Our guests seem to like the privacy of their own cabin type room yet if they choose they can have the amenities of a bed and breakfast and even a cozy pub to relax in. It is a pleasure providing travelers to the area with a real Vermont experience. We are often told it is a refreshing change from the chain hotel experience.

Not a true B&B because you stay in cottage/lodge dwelling, not a traditional home. The cottage/lodges face the busy road (Rt7) making it noisy. While there is a nice deck with chairs leading to the bar/pub area, the gate to access the chairs and tables was locked preventing you from sitting and enjoying the surroundings, if you could enjoy the surroundings with the noisy traffic going by. We were only offered one choice of breakfast time, which was far too early for vacation day. The breakfast seating is sorely lacking, as evidenced by the fact that a couple came in with a child and there wasn't any place for them to sit so they had to put the small child at the bar to eat! Breakfast of one sausage link and mushy pancackes wasn't up to the standards of a VT B&B. Overall, the rooms are fine. Nothing special but nothing lacking either. For the price....head down the road a bit and find a traditional B&B off the main road.

We already understand from the review your husband left a couple days ago (weary_traveller25) that we are not your favorite place. As he pointed out and we agreed, we are not the type of B&B you were looking for – we are not as you say “a traditional home”. We have never promoted ourselves that way either. Interesting that the same day we received your 2nd review from your one night stay a guest called who has been staying here for over 25 years, and was not able to book his favorite room (#1 where you stayed), because we were otherwise full (Thanks Greg S., from Lynbrook!!!)

Our deck area is an extension of our Pub, and as required by law it is closed off from lawn access during pub hours so that it can only be accessed through the Pub.

Our breakfast seating area is located in our Pub, and is licensed to seat up to 24 guests at a time. We serve breakfast at 3 convenient seatings, and when you checked in you wanted a later seating yet it was already full. It just isn’t possible for one person (me) to cook 24 or more breakfasts at one time, so we spread it out so all have time to enjoy. You arrived early for your breakfast anyway, which was fine. Pancake day is a little more flexible. Sorry our recipe for pancakes was not your favorite, but based on guest reviews, comments and requests for the recipe over the years we will keep using it as one of several different breakfast entrees we serve. For our holiday weekend rates during the 4th of July $129/139 you will not find a place nearby that actually cooks breakfast individually and serves it to you. Not all lodging properties listed on Tripadvisor as Bed & Breakfasts actually serve breakfast at all. We do, and our guests seem to enjoy it.

My wife and I, over the years, were lucky enough to travel all over the world. I want to say that our stays at the North Shire were certainly among the very best. Tim and Kerry are wonderful hosts. They attempt in every way to make our stay something special. We look forward to staying there again this fall.
