Manor House Inn Dining Room

As Earth Day approaches, many travelers agree that sustainability is more important than ever. Green hotels aim to lead the way in responsible hospitality. But finding a hotel that offers an elevated eco-conscious experience can be challenging.

To that end, The Manor House Inn is making ongoing improvements to offer sustainable luxury travel while minimizing our environmental impact. Your personal pampering and the planet’s well-being can go hand-in-hand.

We are proud to be one of the few boutique properties to earn the Connecticut Green Lodging Certification.

Our goal is to provide the perfect blend of comfort and affordable luxury for eco-conscious travelers. When you stay in our 125+ year-old historic property, you can feel good knowing your stay supports conscious hospitality.
