This is an AMAZING house, with spectacular decor, comfort, artwork, and grounds. We had a 10 person family reunion for my Dad's #80 and the house and the generous and thoughtful innkeeper Ryan made the whole event memorable and special beyond belief. Even if you don't need to be in Manchester, you need to stay here. It's very special and one of a kind.
