Everyone was very friendly and made you feel welcome. Within walking distance to the down town shops. Great places to eat. Must go to eat at "Up for Breakfast", great homemade food. The entire area is very beautiful with a relaxing atmosphere.

Room Tip: The Green River room was obsolutely beautiful, fieldstone fireplace, king size bed, microwave, fridg...

We recently spent a long weekend at this inn. We stayed in the Green River Lodge suite. The room was extremely private and quiet. We never heard a sound the entire weekend, despite having other guests located in the same inn. We had breakfast at Up for Breakfast and dinner at Ye Olde Tavern (both excellent). Breakfast is not included at this Inn, but wanting to sleep in on Saturday, we brought in baked goods and fresh fruit/yogurt. The suite had a fridge, wine glasses, and a microwave. It was so great to have these amenties! The suite itself was very dark (a minor complaint). It was clean, spacious, and the jacuzzi tub for two was a welcome source of relaxation. This is not an upscale inn by any means, but it was in an excellent location and provided us with the quiet, relaxing weekend we so desperately needed.

Room Tip: Green River Lodge suite is spacious. There is a sitting area with two large lounge chairs. They ar...

Wonderful stay at the Barnstead, we loved the green river lodge room. The owners were very friendly and helpful. It even managed to snow for us, which was much appreciated during the mildest winter in recent history since we came to ski Stratton!

We enjoyed the proximity to town. Staff is friendly and efficient. Nice that they're welcoming of children.

Great breakfast place in town, btw: Up for Breakfast.

We needed a place to stay in the Manchester area at the last minute. The Barnstead happened to be having a special on remaing available rooms for that weekend. We stayed in one of their suites for a very great price. The innkeepers were really nice and very accommodating. They even brought in a pack and play crib for our son so we didn't have to travel with one. I'd definitely stay again if we're ever back in the area.

We had a wonderful stay at The Barnstead Inn this past weekend. The hosts upgraded us to their largest suite at the last minute due to a cancellation, which was unexpected and very kind! The suite was cozy, just the way you picture it should be in Vermont in the winter time! It was also very clean and quiet. So close to everything in the center of town, you can walk right there if you wanted. The host Neil was very friendly and helpful.
Would absolutely recommend anyone stay here. No complaints at all!

My husband and I recently spent time there, and we both wished we could have stayed longer! But due to our schedules it wasn't possible. When I had looked it up online,and I saw the rooms, I knew it was a place for us.When we got there and went to our room- the first words out of our mouths was WOW! I love this room! It was even more cozy and comfortable than it had looked in the picture. We will definitely going back again, and I encourage anyone that will be traveling through Manchester to do the Same.
Thank you,Cindy and Neil for everything! Lori S
