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!
