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 (mid-September through April) and deep-soaking spa tubs all-year-round. Our delightful heated outdoor pool is open from Memorial Day Weekend through 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.

Very Beautiful Grounds and Loved the Breakfast
Loved the open grounds, the view was beautiful ! Did a very good job with the way they handle breakfast, loved the way they set it up considering covid!! I w ould definitely go to Manchester again, beautiful clean quiet area!
Clean large rooms. Wonderful staff. Pristine area. Close to unique shops, restaurants. Great place for hikers, outdoor enthusiasts, couples for that weekend or week away. Also family and Pet friendly.
Visiting a local site. Looking for value and comfort. I found it here.
Well appointed room with a view. Warm and caring staff. All visitor options are exceptional. Space was just large enough without being uncomfortable. Being able to back my car to the room and unload was a joy. The only downside if it really is one, is no hot breakfast. Personally not a fan of a continental style. But if wife was with - she would have approved. Stop for a night or longer. Quaint and quiet setting. Worth the stop
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!
