A group of friends and I spent a snowy winter weekend up in Manchester in order to surprise my wife for her 30th birthday. The house was fantastic. It is ideal for a group (we had 14 people), as the open plan nature of the ground floor lends itself to family style dinners and entertaining. Would highly recommend. The house is also stunning in terms of architecture and layout - quintasential New England beauty. Its only about 30 mins to get to Stratton, so great for winter weekends of skiing during the day and retiring to the house in front of the fireplaces at night. Would certainly return.
