My husband and I were able to get away for just an overnight to The Barnstead Inn this past very snowy weekend, and we enjoyed another wonderful get-a-way at this charming and rustic Inn. The Inn has, I think, 14 rooms, and each has charm and uniqueness that make it a true Vermont hide-a-way full of modern amenities. Our room has a beautiful and SO COMFY king sized bed, with a very lovely addition of a Keurig Coffee maker, microwave and fridge; the view overlooked the summer kitchen and a babbling brook. While my husband skied at nearby Bromley, I was able to relax in comfort with a lovely room, a view and a good book. The Inn is only about 3 blocks from the flagship Northshire Bookstore (a MUST visit) and all of the outlets of Manchester. Innkeepers Neil and Cynthia were SO accommodating; I don't see why anyone would not want to stay in a local charm filled Inn where they listen to what you want and go out of their way to make your stay, short or long, be pleasant and relaxing. We needed to stay a bit past the check out time and Neil was able to accommodate us, and made sure we had everything we needed. dealing with local folks, they also were able to suggest dining and shopping that we may have missed otherwise. The property is so unique and the owners continue to add touches that make it so pleasant. The rooms we have had have been so beautiful, clean and most important, comfortable! The personal touch is so important to us; we really don't like the cookie cutter feel of chain motels, and this has become our favorite home away from home for a romantic night away from work and the family!
