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.

My husband and I loved The Manchester View and are already planning to return in September. The staff are all very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable and the grounds and views are beautiful. Cant wait to return. See you in September!!!
What a cute place!! The rooms were clean, the staff was super friendly, and the views were spectacular. We were in town for a wedding and it was absolutely perfect! And the town (Only about 5 minutes away) was like a postcard! Nice shops and restaurants and such a calm, peaceful atmosphere!
Perfect Spot to Stay
First day at the Manchester view was better than expected. The location was perfect the resort was beautiful and quiet. Additionally the staff was a 10 out of 10. We will definitely go back if ever in the area.
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!
