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 beautifully-colorful landscape of flora in spring and summer, a spectacular leaf-peeper's dream in autumn, and a snowy wonderland in winter.  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 rejuvinating 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.

Queen Bedroom

Our traditional Queen bedded room with attached outdoor deck is perfect for up to two people.

Ethan Allen Room

A dramatic colonial style room, with Queen canopy bed, overlooking the fields and the mountains.

Norman Rockwell Suite

Local Attractions

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) include Bromley, Stratton and Magic Mountains and are just a short drive from the hotel.  A visit during any season will be memorable!
