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 an autumn delight for leaf-peeping in the fall, a snowy wonderland in winter, and a beautifully-colorful landscape of flora in spring and summer. 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.

Was very conveniently located. Clerk at front desk was very accommodating and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Bed comfortable and clean. Shower had plenty of pressure. Views beautiful. Was there for a golfing event and was minutes from the course. Downtown minutes away. Would definitely go back when in area.
Comfy and Cozy Southwestern Vermont Accommodations
We had a very nice two night stay at this relaxing motel. We especially enjoyed sitting in Adirondack chairs on the lawn and enjoying the view of the nearby Green Mountains while enjoying the continental breakfast.
Great, quiet location to relax
We spent three days at the Manchester View. We were in the Norman Rockwell suite. The room was very clean and well-appointed. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck and just relaxing with some wine and cheese. Wi Fi was good. It is about 2 miles from the center of town, so we had to drive to get there. Parking was right near the door. Breakfast was grab and go. You filled out a form the night before and returned it to the breakfast room. Then, in the morning, you went and picked up your breakfast. If you want quiet and seclusion, this is the place for you
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!

Travel to the Green Mountains of Southern Vermont where Mother Nature is putting on quite a show! Leaf-peepers can't find a better location than the Manchester and the Mountains region to see leaves of yellow, orange, red and purple dotting the landscape in the trees and on the ground. Autumn conditions are great for finding your pie and Jack 'O Lantern pumpkins at the Equinox Valley Nursery, and for shopping, hiking, biking, horseback riding, gallery and museum wandering, and antiquing. Enjoy Vermont's open spaces and fresh air; the Dorset Farmers' Market is open on Sundays at HN Williams. Manchester's Farmers' Market is open Thursdays at Adams Park. There are other farmers' markets and farm stands north and south along the way. Find artisan-made clothing, jewelry, sports and footwear, and so much more in Manchester Center at local shops and outlet stores. Visit the Manchester and the Mountains region to invigorate all of your senses.
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.
