Historic Hildene Tour

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. Abraham Lincoln had not visited with his wife and children, and didn't live to see Hildene, nor did his wife.  Decades later Robert returned to purchase hundreds of acres of land upon which to build what he would call his ancestral home.  Built in 1905, Robert and his wife Mary, called their stately new home Hildene.

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 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!
