About Joan Burns

I moved here from Westchester County, NY in 2012. I lived in that area for over 40 years. During 5 of those years I was an innkeeper in the Bahamas as welI as St. Croix. I grew up coming here, almost moved here a couple of different times and in 2012, I decided to make the move. I bought this property and completely renovated it the first year I was here. At the beginning of 2014 I set out to create Tucked In. It's new and I'm excited to be back in the hospitality business. I love Manchester and I look forward to hosting you here in my new hometown.

Joan Burns purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Joan Burns chose Manchester Center

I looked for a long time and there was something about this house and where it sat. I didn't want to be in the middle of nowhere so this was the perfect solution. My house was built in 1895 and it was built beautifully. It was in desperate need of love and that's what it got. It took some time and a little bit of aggravation but in the end, it is magnificent and stands proudly in the center of town. A neighbor across the street described it as 'shiny'

What makes this cottage unique

The benefits are its proximity to everything in town, the luxurious amenities in the cottage, and the comparably affordable nightly rate!

Perfect cozy cottage!!! 😍😍

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week in this lovely cottage, very spacious for 2 people with all the amenities we needed. The location is great and we were able to walk to the town as well as short drives for great hikes and fly fishing. We also highly recommend the Thai Basil restaurant, 5 minute walk from Tucked In. 😄

Awesome cottage, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the beautiful tucked in exceeded our expectations ! The decor is lovely, modern, and very comfortable. All amenities are top notch, especially the heated floors in the bathroom. Water options in the shower, plush robes, bath sheets, and toiletries are all first class. The kitchen contains everything you might need for a short or a long stay. The height of the ceilings in the living areas create a spacious feel. The grounds are beautiful, and well manicured. The location, in the center of Manchester, could not be more perfectly situated. There are several fine shops and restaurants within walking distance, however, a car is needed for extended sightseeing. The owner, Joan Burns, was very prompt in her response to our inquiries. We will definitely stay at tucked in during our next visit to Manchester.

Haven in the Midst of Manchester

  • 5 of 5

A delightful cottage to get away to and yet within walking distance of restaurants and shops. Everything in the cottage was top notch and the little garden was very relaxing. All communications with Joan were terrific. Thanks!

Wonderful stay in Manchester Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a marvelous cottage in downtown Manchester. The home is exactly as it appears in the listing. The house has great linens, wonderful new bed and mattress, modern room decor and feel. We had a wonderful week here.

The house is 6 doors from the "downtown" Manchester. We walked every morning to Northshire bookstore and cafe for coffee and a newspaper. You are walking distance to many of the stores and restaurants. Even though the house is near the town, it is quiet, set back from the street. Inside or in the yard, you hear very little street noise. We enjoyed sitting in the yard during the day.

Joan, the owner, is very attentive. We had a small issue with the grill, she got it repaired immediately. She is a pleasure to deal with.

The house is perfect for 2 people. We had a wonderful 6 nights, I highly recommend this cottage.

Sweet Cottage...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited "Tucked In" this past weekend. Very sweet cottage, nicely decorated and outfitted, with all the creature comforts! We especially enjoyed hanging outside on the little terrace in the morning with our tea and books. Within easy walking distance of everything but just outside the fray, we found the location perfect for our needs and wants. The owner was out of town while we were there, but was easily accessible if we needed her. Lovely little cottage all around...
