Built in 1770 and situated in the heart of historic Manchester Village, the House has been in Inn since 1811, apart from the time it was owned by Abraham Lincoln's granddaughter. Faithfully restored to reflect its early federalist beginnings, the 1811 House today offers its guests the ambiance of yesteryear combined with 20th century conveniences, including full air conditioning.
Each of the 14 rooms, all with private bath, is individually decorated with oriental rugs, original art and early English and American antiques. Some rooms have woodburning fireplaces, some have canopied beds and the views are exceptional and varied. The first floor boasts an authentic British pub, including dartboard, serving fine wines, spirits, beer on tap and an outstanding collection of single malt scotches.
Guests are also welcome in the kitchen, where they are free to make tea or coffee and sample delicious home made cookies. The full sit down cooked breakfast, included in the price, is a constant award winner but only those staying at the Inn get to experience it.
Standing in 7.5 acres of beautiful gardens, overlooking the Gleneagles Golf Course and the Green Mountains beyond, the 1811 House successfully combines elegance with informality and romance with hospitality.
