Welcome to The Manchester View
Offering the best mountain views in southern Vermont, The Manchester View is a 36-room fine 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 and surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens in spring and summer, autumn colors in the fall, and a snowy wonderland in winter, our award-winning hotel features guest rooms and one- and two-bedroom suites appointed with cozy features like working gas and wood-burning fireplaces and deep-soaking spa tubs. The layout of the property allows for "social distancing" with buildings spaced a comfortable distance apart and with room entrances opening to the outside.
Tour beautiful historic Hildene, Robert Todd Lincoln’s Manchester home. Robert was the only child of President Abraham Lincoln and his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, to survive to maturity. He first visited Manchester as a young man in the summer of 1864 when he came to the Equinox Hotel to meet his mother and his brother Tad. Decades after this visit, Robert returned to purchase the land where he later built his ancestral home in 1905. Robert and wife Mary called it Hildene...
Lovely and Restful
Manchester View is located just a couple miles north of "downtown" Manchester with a beautiful view of the Green Mountains. I stayed in the Pearl Buck Room which was large, comfortable, and lovely. (Nothing colored orange!). The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast had good choices including fresh pineapple.
Our stay was for an overnight family gathering and property searching. Manchester View was the perfect spot with it's beautiful breathtaking mountain views. The rooms are very clean, roomy, calm, and the staff are very friendly. I would definitely return and recommend staying there.
Best Winter Getaway Ever!
My partner and I spent three nights in the Green Mountain room and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The king bed was very comfortable. The tub was relaxing. The fireplace was cozy. We also enjoyed the continental breakfast.
This is the second year we stayed here! We absolutely love this place! The rooms are beautiful, the views are breathtaking, and the staff is wonderful!! Can't wait to go back again! We stayed in the king premium room with fireplace. It was perfect!
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 a mile and 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, galleries and museums, sports venues, 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 summer adventure parks) — including Bromley, Stratton and Magic Mountains — are just a short drive from the hotel. A visit during any season will be memorable!
