The pictures don't do it justice

The Reluctant Panther offers the professional staff and beautiful, private rooms of a boutique hotel and the friendly, down to earth atmosphere expected in a Vermont B&B. The inn has an eclectic bar/wine cellar/funky common area downstairs along with a formal dining room. This is THE BEST B&B I have ever stayed in! The only criticism I can muster is that the breakfast was too fancy for my taste. This is purely a personal preference, but they don't offer the traditional, hearty Vermont breakfast I have enjoyed at other (not as beautiful!) B&Bs.

AMAZING PLACE

This was an amazing place. The best customer service I have seen in a very long time. It was a very nice place and it looks so much more beautiful than in the pictures! Plan to stay there many many more times.

perfect vermont getaway

My husband and I have stayed her several times with and without our baby, each time it gets better . Its the perfect location ...right in the middle of beautiful Manchester! You have shopping , skiing, a spa and great places to eat all in walking distance. The food at the Reluctant Panther is superb! And the included breakfast is amazing and delicious. All and all a great place to stay.

Perfect Babymoon!

I spent a luxurious 3 days at the Reluctant Panther Inn for my babymoon. It by far exceeded my expectations. From the stunning room and view, the serene dining and the most amazing bed and bath both of which were ample enough to accomodate my very pregnant state. I would stay there again anytime of the year!

Simply awesome

Can't say enough about this b&b. It was perfect. We booked a mid range room and the owner upgraded us to the Blue Bonnet room no extra charge. We loved it. Simply Awesome! We will be going back.
