My wife and I came upon the Barnstead Inn more than twenty years ago. We revisited the inn this summer, and we still love the property. The rooms are small. but comfortable. There is a nice little pool on the property that no one seems to use, but my wife and I love it. It is within walking distance of...

Neil H, Owner at The Barnstead Inn, responded to this review

Thank you for your review! Cynthia & I appreciate it. Although I feel that I must clarify that we do have larger rooms available. Some of them are three times larger than the room that you had chosen. We also have two room suites complete with two baths rather than just one. It just depends upon what the needs of...

My wife and I go up annually every October and stay at the Barnstead Inn for a long weekend. We started staying at the Barnstead Inn in 2007 when we got engaged while hiking Mount Equinox Burr & Burton trail. We go back every year and Cynthia and Neil are tremendous hosts. Great accommodations and easy access to dinner spots,...

The Barnstead Inn is a charming, clean Inn with wonderful hosts. The Inn is in close proximity to the center of Manchester but remote enough to allow the view from the pool to include the mountains, a pond, and beautiful garden. Cindy and Neil are happy to accomodate any requests/questions and help make your stay as comfortable as possible.

The Barnstead is extremely clean & has the most comfortable king sized mattress that we have ever slept on. Rooms have a warm comfortable ambience. Innkeepers Neil & Cindy are very friendly & knowledgeable about the area. Neil even gave me a tip on dealing with a basic electrical problem. The grounds are well maintained with lovely gardens.

Just had our 6th stay at the inn, and every year it is a pleasure!! Clean, comfortable, updated rooms, beautiful gardens, and just a short walk to shopping and restaurants make for a most enjoyable stay. We always look forward to seeing Neil and Cindy and catch up on what's going on in Manchester and at the inn. If you're...

This is a wonderful place to stay. We stayed one night in the Witherell Farm room and absolutely loved it. Neil and Cindy are very gracious hosts and are very helpful, especially if you're visiting for the first time. The location is close enough to walk to Main Street (lots of shops and restaurants) but it's set back enough to...

The grounds around the rustic Barnestead Inn immediately suck the stress right out of you. It feels very "rural" and removed from the town yet is one of the few area inns within reasonable walking distance of several breakfast, lunch and dinner establishments and retail shopping. Innkeepers Neil and Cynthia are very down to earth and Neil (a local) can...

We have been staying here for over 30 years and the inn is only getting better! The grounds are in beautiful shape and the new out buildings add just the right touch to the property. The rooms are the cleanest and up to date. The entire feeling here is just " relax and enjoy " and that is what we...

My wife and I came upon the Barnstead Inn in Manchester, VT quite by accident. We were planning to hike and camp at nearby Stratton Pond, however steady rain in the forecast led us to change our plans. The Barnstead Inn was was charming! There are exposed beams and antiques throughout the inn, and nostalgic flair outside the inn on...
