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

I had a great stay here while riding at Stratton. The rooms were clean, quiet, and had a comfortable bed. The surrounding scenery was really nice as well.
Everything about our stay at The Manchester View was superb. We needed to shift the dates of our stay and the staff at the front desk couldn’t have been more accommodating. Our room (111) was nicely appointed with a fireplace and jetted tub which we enjoyed after two days of skiing. I definitely recommend this hotel if you’re looking for a quiet and quaint place to stay.
I'll Be Back
Clean, cozy rooms, beautiful place to visit. Close to outlets, shopping and Ski resorts. Very nice Staff and Managment. I will 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!
