MANCHESTER VILLAGE -A new addition to The Inn at Manchester may be in the works, with an eye towards having it constructed by the summer of 2014.

Frank Hanes, owner and innkeeper, said the inn is hoping to add an event space in the field on the property.

"We are anxious to grow our business," he said. "We have a beautiful property and can't wait to make it prettier."

The structure, that he described as an event barn, will be built in "traditional, New England" fashion.

Hanes said the Inn's business is based on the relationships they build with their guests. These same relationships gave birth to the idea for the space. "We heard from various brides and grooms that they wanted a traditional New England feel to their events year round," he said. "We listened to them and hope this addition pleases them."

The space will not just be for weddings and parties; Hanes said it is their hope for it to be utilized by the community at large.

A meeting with the development review board is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 6, where the project will be discussed. Hanes said a presentation made earlier this week before the Design Review Board went "very well."
