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 and charm of a family-owned New England country inn with resort-style service and amenities. Nestled on a tranquil property surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens in spring and summer, autumn colors 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.
We had a great time at the Manchester View! The room was charming, large with fireplace and king size bed. There is a private deck with table and chairs to view the beautifully kept grounds. We enjoyed the fresh muffins along with the continental breakfast. We have stayed at the Manchester View several times and plan to stay there any time we visit Manchester.
Great accommodations and grounds. Room was clean and nicely decorated. Staff was warm and friendly. Inn is far enough out of town to be quiet, but close enough to be near area attractions. Highly recommend.
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 is going to be memorable!

To pick the freshest crispiest and juiciest apples in late summer and autumn, visit the Mad Tom Orchard east of Route 7. Varieties of apples have different maturation periods within the growing season, and the orchard has 14 varieties! Bring a picnic and eat outside, amongst the trees, during your fruit harvest adventure. The scenery around the orchard is beautiful with views of the mountains and refreshing breezes.
Located at 2615 Mad Tom Rd., East Dorset, VT
