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 and deep-soaking spa tubs.  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.

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 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 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!

Area Events

Travel to the Green Mountains of Southern Vermont where Mother Nature will bring early buds to the trees, crocuses and daffodils peeking out of the earth, and a restoring light out of winter's tunnel.  Conditions are great for shopping, hiking, biking, horseback riding, gallery and museum wandering, and antiquing.  Now that we've shed our heavier clothing for lighter apparel, visit Manchester to find artisan-made clothing, jewelry, sports and footwear, and so much more!  Enjoy Vermont's open spaces and fresh air; soon you can peruse local outdoor farmers' markets.  Visit the Manchester and the Mountains region to bid farewell to winter and reawaken your senses in this beautiful area.

No matter what the weather, the Manchester View is ready to welcome you when you arrive for your stay.  During the day, take in breathtaking 360-degree views of the mountains.  By night, our charming property is illuminated by white post and fairy lights.  Check back for our favorite area events as time goes by!

And come to the Green Mountains in southern Vermont anytime for all-year-long attractions and seasonal events in the area, for dining and shopping, and for the majestic scenery.  The best place to stay to enjoy the view is the Manchester View, where the name says it all.   One of the most awarded hotels in Manchester, the lodge has held the prestigious Three Diamond Award from AAA for many years. It has been lauded in “The Discerning Traveler” newsletter and featured in "Weekending in New England" and "The Yankee Traveler."
