Neil and Cynthia were the most accommodating hosts we could ask for. Not only did they upgrade our room but they also (happily) let us extend our check out time the last day. Our room was fantastic; cozy, charming and clean and the rest of the buildings/facilities looked as equally well maintained. The inn was within walking distance to shops,...

Our first visit here was in December a few years ago. They upgraded us to a suite which was lovely. This time we visited in June and were again upgraded to a suite. We were very appreciative both times and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The owners go out of their way to make you comfortable and the place is cozy...

Beautiful property and wonderful room. As others have noted it is very clean.The mattress was one of most comfortable we have ever slept on. The location is perfect for area attractions.Neil was a wonderful host who upgraded us to a bigger room because one was available. A very nice surprise. Would definitely like to return.

The owner Neil could not be nicer. The room was exceptionally clean and avoided the typical "Victorian" feeling of some other inns in the area. We felt warm, very welcome, and content. If you keep to yourselves, there is no pressure to socialize. Easy walking distance to town center. Excellent prices!

Meticulously clean, great hosts, wonderful town and surrounding areas. Swimming pool is private, and again meticulously clean, gets sun all day:) Great tourist attractions nearby, and great outlet shopping.

We love to go to the Manchester area just before the holidays for some last minute shopping and early season skiing. We found the Barnstead Inn 2 years ago and will be making it our annual spot. The rooms are wonderful and cozy and very clean. This year Neil was so kind to give us an upgrade which made our...

We have been staying at the Barnstead Inn for several years and just love it!. Neil and Cindy could not be nicer or more helpful. we love that we can take our morning walk into the town center for breakfast or some early window shopping!

We come up every year to the Manchester area and always stay at the Barnstead Inn. Neil has always been very helpful in accommodating parents traveling with 2 children, and very few places in the Manchester area are. The inn is very well maintained and the rooms are hi-end cozy. We like that breakfast is not part of the inn,...

My husband and I checked in yesterday for 1 night. We booked the smaller double room but Neil let us have the King room instead, that was a nice gesture. I would highly recommend this Inn. It's very neat and clean.

I got EXTREMELY lucky finding a last minute room at the Barnstead Inn over Columbus Day weekend. Having never been to Manchester, I had no idea what an amazing place the Barnstead Inn was. Not only was it in the perfect location, but it was so cute and cozy. Although we didn't spend a ton of time in our room,...
