Welcome to The Manchester View
The Perfect Lodging in Southern Vermont
Offering the best mountain views in southern Vermont, the Manchester View is a 36-room lodging property combining the warmth of New England with friendly service and delightful amenities. Nestled in a tranquil valley between the Green and Taconic Mountains, 'The View,' as we're affectionately known, is a snowy wonderland in late autumn and winter, and a beautifully-colorful landscape of flora in spring and summer. Our award-winning hotel features guest rooms and one- and two-bedroom suites, most appointed with cozy features like working gas and wood-burning fireplaces in-season (mid-September through April) and deep-soaking spa tubs all-year-round. Our delightful heated outdoor pool is open from Memorial Day Weekend through at least Labor Day Weekend, and offers a panoramic view of the mountains. The layout of the property allows for "social distancing" with buildings spaced a comfortable distance apart and with most room entrances opening directly to the outside.

My wife and I stayed here in early October. We opted for a room with a fireplace which was worth it! Wood burns quickly but it was a great experience and the views in the morning...definitely worth a visit! The area is very dark after dusk with little streetlights which provides cool picture opportunities.
A Quiet & Charming Place
Excellent value for a large suite with 2 bathrooms. Very good housekeeping service and will return in the future. It is quiet and somewhat secluded, but close to the downtown area. I believe it is one of Manchester’s best kept secrets!
Wow, what a beautiful setting at the Manchester View. We were in Room 121, which had a great view of the area's mountains from our spacious balcony. The properly was clean, quiet, and relaxing. We didn't have breakfast, but we did walk over to the breakfast room to grab coffee & muffins for the road. All were excellent. Check-in/out was friendly, quick, and easy. The location 2 miles outside of the busy downtown Manchester area was ideal. Really excellent, all-around. We'll be back!
The Manchester View sits high up on a hill with magnificent sweeping views of the historic Route 7A valley and the Green and Taconic mountain ranges, just over a mile and a half north of the center of town and two miles south of Dorset Village in southwestern Vermont. 'The View' is close to so many local attractions, dining options, local shops and high-end outlet stores, galleries and museums, and natural sights that you'll be busy non-stop, or choose to relax in the comfort of your room or suite. Some of Vermont's best ski resorts (and warmer weather adventure parks) — including Bromley, Stratton and Magic Mountains — are just a short drive from the hotel. A visit during any season will be memorable!
