About Joan Burns

I moved to Manchester 4 years ago. I have renovated this house and created my other rental, "Tucked In" which is on the same property. Until now, I have only rented Tucked In. The cottage has been a huge success. I decided it was time to share my amazing main house with the Homeaway community.

Joan Burns purchased this house in 2012

Why Joan Burns chose Manchester Center

This property is perfect for any number of scenarios. Family reunion, girls or guys getaway, couples, family ski vacation and with the additional cottage, the possibilities are endless. It is a very relaxing, comfortable home in the middle of downtown Manchester on a half acre. The cottage is rented separately.

What makes this house unique

It's a beautiful home with the luxury of being in town.

Enjoyable Ski Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Very lovely home, just as described. We had a few couples get together for a ski weekend at Stratton. House had plenty of room, very comfortable with all the amenities needed (e.g., cooking utensils, wifi, linens, fire place, towels, etc.) and well laid out/designed. Owner was very responsive and helpful even allowing us last minute to check out a few hours later to enjoy the town.

Ideal location in the center of Manchester town walking distance to restaurants, bars and shopping. Easy ~15-20 minute drive to the base of Stratton mountain.

Perfect for 4-5 couples ski weekend or a large family looking to enjoy the town and surrounding areas.

Stunning home with incredible amenities.

Our stay at the '136 Club' could not have been better! The home is beautiful and everything from the bedrooms to kitchen to customized bathrobes made our stay more than comfortable.

This is our second year staying at Bonnet House. It's perfect for our group of two families. The owner couldn't be more lovely or accommodating. The house is beautifully maintained and appointed. The location is perfect. We'll be back next year!
