The place gets better with each visit! The guys are awesome, the atmosphere is wonderful. It's cozy sitting by the fireplace; both in our room and in the tavern area. The food is magnificent! This place is a great place to stay to go visit many places. We stayed in two rooms this time. We always LOVE the Remember Baker...

I have stayed at the Ira Allen House on multiple occasions over the past three years during different seasons - and I'm never disappointed. Breakfast changes daily, and it's always one of the highlights of the day. (For example, I loved the made-from-scratch strawberry muffins from earlier today.) I've had the pleasure of staying in almost every room onsite, but...

I literally have nothing to add to that which all the prior reviews already state: this is a really nice getaway. Although let me add its a dream to visit with a little child of 4. What better way to get the child to understand Fall and different terrains than to take him out of san diego and into vermont....

We stayed for 2 nights at the Ira Allen Bed & Breakfast and was very pleased with the experience and price. It's an old house, originally built by Ira and Ethan Allen (of Revolutionary War fame, but NO relation to the furniture), and very easy to find. They've 4 rooms available, we stayed in the Abigail's Suite, which was very...

This is our first trip to Vermont and The Ira Allen Inn was our first bed and breakfast on our 6 day tour around the state. We were the only people staying because a big party canceled so they upgraded us to their nicest suite without an up charge. Mike and Kevin were so nice and funny and very very...

Poor Michael and Kevin must be fed up with my superlative reviews of their lovely Inn - but having just stayed there again in September, just had to include another. We stayed in the 'Abigail Suite' on this visit. The room was really delightful - a new color scheme of soothing green and cream really enhanced the space, as did...

Great experience. Wonderful hosts, breakfast, room. Close to everything. Other couples staying in more popular inns did not enjoy their accommodations as much as ours. Interesting house history as well. Homey atmosphere. Interesting guests.

I always enjoy visiting historic sites, so staying at a place that was built in 1779, and had belonged to the Allen family was a real treat! I had looked forward this one night stay on our way to Maine, and it didn't disappoint! The owners were both quite personable, friendly, and added to the enjoyment of the stay. The...

I chose this B&B based on its age and history. It's the real deal -- built in 1779. Michael & Kevin are superb hosts. We felt comfortably at home throughout our five night stay. It's not luxurious, it's not shiny and new, but that's exactly why we're here. Breakfast is incredible. Starts with locally produced yogurt & fruit and goes...

The Ira Allen Inn is a gem of a B&B located minutes from Manchester. The home is warm, inviting and provides just a lovely New England setting. Innkeepers Michael & Kevin were most hospitable and accommodating. It's evident they love their home and hosting. As info, breakfast is VERY filling and fresh. Farm to table to tummy!
