Visitors agree. Vermont in the fall is a “must see.” The mountains have turned from summer green to fall’s magnificent red, orange, and gold. The air is fresh and cool and fall festivals entice from all over the state. For true Vermont hospitality and warm, country charm, the Barnstead Inn is the perfect lodging choice to experience Vermont in the fall. Located just two blocks from Manchester Center, the Barnstead Inn offers a quiet retreat from the bustle of the village. Feel a part of Vermont history in the 1830s carriage house which comprises the inn. The remaining rugged beams are a clear reminder of the past. However, nothing else about the inn is old-fashioned. Rooms each have private bath, air conditioning, cable, thermostat, courtesy coffee, wireless Internet access and cozy beds to welcome you back at the end of each busy day.
And days in Manchester can be as busy as you like. Take a hike along well-marked, local trails and enjoy the spender of fall foliage. Shop in Manchester’s Designer Outlets or the many other uniquely Vermont shops. The area also offers exceptional dining options to suit all tastes and pocketbooks. Not quite sure where to start? Inn staff is ready to help you with your plans.
During the fall, you have even more activities to choose from with local festivals such as the Bennington Quiltfest, Peru Fair, Manchester Fall Art & Craft Festival, Mt. Snow Oktoberfest, and so much more. For a full list of fall festivals, check Vermont.com’s Fall Festivals page or go to the Calendar of Events.
