“relaxing stay with friendly and helpful guidance”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We made a quick weekend trip to Manchester, booking the INN at Willow Pond at the last minute. The actual rate turned out to be 25% less than what I reserved through booking.com which was a very pleasant surprise. The room was clean and large, but a little dated, but generally comfortable and quiet with a view of the mountains across the golf course in the valley. The bed was a little firm. We got amazing advice on hiking options in the Green Mountain forest, including many trails. Each was a pleasant surprise. The lodge was comfortable, with a large pool and a light breakfast. There's also a restaurant on site, but we ended up going into town to eat. Its perhaps a 3 minute drive from the center of town down Rt 7A, which was very quiet on the weekend we were there.

Room Tip: South facing room was bright, and on the second floor with a good view and parking on the back.

I stayed for a single night, the room was very clean, the location was beautiful, the room was welcoming, and comfortable. The value of this inn is exceptional. If considering somewhere to stay, consider to stay at the Inn at Willows Pond.

We stayed here one night and from living in the area years ago, we thought these accommodations would be just what we were looking for with a view of the mountains from the balcony. Walking into the suite we both noticed the run down appearance of the outside of the building, actually all the buildings. The room was very shabby , outdated and in dire need of a decorator. The price of the room was steep but we figured for one night and we had not been away for a long time, we would splurge. There were footprints on the carpet and the toilet had been used and not flushed. The woman at the desk was friendly and helpful and the grounds although impressive were not well maintained. It could be a beautiful place, the infrastructure is there. The Inn keepers just need to pay more attention to the comments left here.

We stayed for two nights on their golf package in July. The golf part was perfect - a great country club across the street that was low key and a stunning course. The restaurant on site - TED Restaurant - was also excellent. The accommodations, however, were crap.

Inn is more of a motel. Buildings are tired and in desperate need of upkeep. Bathroom door did not close, windows would not open, sheets and bedding low grade, furniture in need of updating. The outside appearance of the buildings suffer (need paint and repairs) and the grounds are not regularly maintained (not terrible, but look shabby).

The main reception/lodge is cute and in better shape, and the pool looks pretty good (didn't use it), but the guest accommodations are just in terrible shape.

In short, staying in the room was simply depressing. They bank on the location and access to golf/skiing - that is it.

As a side note, receptionist was great. She just needs to get a job at a better place.

Room Tip: If you HAVE to say here, get one with a balcony overlooking the golf course. They are the upper lev...

We booked a room for a single night when we couldn't find a place nearer to Bennington. We are sold on going back up there for a wonderful weekend in the future! It's just out of the way of Manchester. The room is SPACIOUS. We opened the windows and were lulled to sleep by crickets. The woman who works there is WONDERFUL. While we rented the place in a pinch, we fully intend to head back on up there for a weekend getaway. Manchester is loaded with great shops and dining experiences and this is the enticement it takes to drive right on through Bennington on up to Manchester. You park right up to your room and it's a 15 ft haul w/your luggage tops. I highly recommend this place!

I have just returned from a wonderful weekend at The Inn at Willow Pond. The area itself is lovely but the beaucolic surroundings of the Inn are quite impressive! I was graciously greeted by the innkeeper, who made me feel right at home and filled me in on all of the happenings in the area. My room was a VERY generous size with views of the mountains and impeccably clean. An added bonus is the recently reopened restaurant on the property is delicious and is an easy walk from your room. I am already planning to go back later this summer with a friend!

Room Tip: request a onebedroom suite with fireplace

We had a very pleasurable stay here. The young lady in the office gave us perfect directions to Lybrook Falls which is a beautiful 4 mile hike not far away. We had a one bedroom suite with fireplace which was very large with a balcony that overlooked the willows and the little pond. The fireplace was nice on the cool evening. The restaurant Ted which is right on the property was a very wonderful surprise. The food was excellent as was the service and we received wonderful information on the history of the building. This location would be absolutely stunning in the fall, bur it was most enjoyable in spring as well.
