Very overpriced. Very clean. I liked the swivel rocker. But for the price they charge it can only be rated as average. I booked over the phone but never got a confirmation. When I got there, no one at the desk but there was an envelope with a key and a map to my room. The front desk service was... More

Beautiful Inn filled with country charm. Quiet, close to shopping and ski resorts. Pet friendly. Staff was very helpful with suggestions what to see, making the most of our weekend stay. Rooms clean and cozy, great views. Our family will definitely return.

This may be the worst place I have ever stayed. Thankfully I had a Groupon so I didn't pay as much as others. When you drive up to the property you will notice the buildings are all mildew. That is your first warning. When checking in we were upgraded to a fireplace suite. Like another reviewer said, the only thing... More

I had gotten a groupon deal that included a tour for two of the Hildene House and it seemed like a good time to return to Manchester. The rooms are in townhouse type buildings. The reception area consists of a huge rustic room plus a conference room and dining area, weight room, pool out back (which I didn't realize until... More

I love the rustic appearance of the Inn. The rooms are always kept clean to my surprise. Whenever I would leave the room, upon my return the bed would be made and anything else that was messy was fixed. The rooms are so nice and cozy. I love to go for a quick getaway with my boyfriend or friends there.... More

Very nice weekend at the Inn. Friendly hostess, nice big room with good beds and a continental breakfast the morning after. I must admit that Saturday we hit Up For Breakfast in Manchester Center but on Sunday we had the complimentary offerings and I skied until 1:00 before breaking for lunch.

I had visited this place last October with my Husband. The view every morning was spectacular with the foliage and its vivid colours celebrating the end of seasons.

We stayed here last year for a long ski weekend at Stratton. It was one of the coldest weekends all year and there was no heat during our entire four day stay. The frigid cold caused the heating units to malfunction and the only air that was blowing out of the units was barely warm - not enough to get... More

Planned a last minute trip to Vermont for the weekend. The check in was at 3pm and one quick phone call was made and the front desk made arrangements to check in at noon.

This inn has a couple of blocks of rooms, with a separate reception building and restaurant block, so there's a short walk to get the complimentary continental breakfast.
