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 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, 'The View,' as we're affectionately known, is a beautifully-colorful landscape of flora in spring and summer, an autumn delight for leaf-peeping 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 in-season and deep-soaking spa tubs all-year-round. 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.
Tour beautiful historic Hildene, Robert Todd Lincoln’s Manchester home. Robert, the only child of President Abraham Lincoln and Mary Todd Lincoln to survive to maturity, first visited Manchester as a young man in the summer of 1864 when he came to meet up with his mother and younger brother Tad.

A Place to Stay for a Wedding
We traveled to Manchester, VT for a wedding and as we planned the trip discovered The Manchester View. It was set just 5 minute drive to the wedding venue in downtown Manchester, but outside the busy shopping areas. We loved the view and a cool dip in the outdoor pool. Not too fancy but clean and comfortable.
Love the View
Love the place. Even though the weather did not cooperate we still enjoy the mountains. The room had sliding class door to walk out to the deck. Like the fact you can walk down the country road near the inn.
Lovely, spacious, clean, comfortable, and beautiful views and property.
OMG What a great place to stay! Amazing views of the surrounding mountains and beautiful grounds around the property. Gorgeous super comfortable rooms and breakfast is included. Pet friendly as well. Lots to do and see in this area with many restaurants to enjoy. Wish we could stay longer. Highly recommend!
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 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!
