I grew up in Manchester, Vermont and have been living in New York City for the past 20 years. I recently moved back to Manchester and have a tremendous appreciation for the beauty and nature and charm of this quintessential beautiful New England town. My parents moved to Vermont (via New York City and Athens, Greece) in 1972. They purchased the Wilburton Inn and rental homes in 1987 and have run it with love ever since. My 3 siblings and I are proud to continue their tradition of hospitality. We love meeting our guests and introducing them to the wonders of a Vermont vacation.

Melissa Levis purchased this house in 1987

This house is located on a spectacular, historic, 30 acre hilltop estate with phenomenal views of the green mountains. It is off the main road so guests can truly relax and truly get away from it all, yet it is centrally located in the heart of Manchester Village - just 1 mile to Hildene and the Equinox Hotel.

We can cater your events at the house through our inn.

Visit our organic farm and bakery 3 miles from the house. Enjoy the Museum of the Creative Process sculpture trail that retraces myths and the matriarchs on our 30 acre estate.

Though you have a fantastic kitchen in this rental home, you can relax on vacation and stroll over to the Wilburton Mansion for a delicious breakfast or dinner.

a great vacation

  • 5 of 5
We three families had a great vacation in this wonderful house. Marvelous view from the balcony, very convenient location to the downtown and restaurants. The house owner and staff are very friendly and helpful. Will visit again. Just a few tips for improvement: we had to get paper towel, dishwash soap and detergent from the front desk during our stay. I hope there are some stock in the house.

Excellent weekend with friends !

  • 5 of 5
We really loved our stay at Melissa’s house!! She was very helpful, pleasant and hospitable host and even greeted us with a welcome present of local organic bread and cookies. The house was very specious with high ceilings and large deck overlooking amazing mountain views of Vermont with an outside barbecue grill. The rooms were large and comfortable and very clean. The house could easily accommodate our group of 9 grownups and the kitchen was well equipped with a large dining table. The house is located on a 28 acre of the Wilburton Inn which includes an outside swimming pool and a tennis court that was a great addition to our weekend. Also, the inn’s grounds are like a big museum of sculptures and magnificent landscape architecture which was very relaxing and tranquil (a great retreat for Newyorkers!!). We would definitely come back again!! Thanks Melissa!!

Mad Men in Manchester

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Inn Keepers / Hand House with 2 families -- 4 toddlers total. The house worked out great and the 70s House and Garden vibe definitely grew on everyone. The view from the sheltered deck was amazing and the art exhibit house next door was an unexpected bonus. If you like the show Mad Men then you will like this house.

Thanks for writing in and coming to visit!

HAND HOUSE - EXCELLENT FOR A FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
With three infants, 3 - 6 months we had to find a family vacation rental for 6 adults, 3 infants and occasional overnight visitors. The Hand House perfectly fit our needs.

The open floor plan of the interior of the home extends seemlessly with outdoor deck space with a magnificent panoramic mountain view. A view which all the bedrooms share.

The bonus of this home is the interesting art work, paintings and sculpturs, placed around the interior which is enhanced by the numerous sculpturs located throughout the grounds of the Inn.

Albert and his wife Georgette could not have more accomodating in providing my family with the special needs of three infants such as Pack and Plays and cribs. Albert even accommodated my son's request for a marshmallow roast and expanded it into an event for all the families staying at the Inn and the other homes.......What a great evening! On another occasion he even provided us with a guided tour and discussion of his prized artwork.

The location of the home with its proximity to the shops, museums and restaurants in Manchester Center and the outdoor activities available in the mountains offers something for all ages interests.

A wonderful and memorable vacation, which we plan to repeat.

Owner's Response: I enjoyed the initiative of having a bond fire and smores party and opening this event to the other quests of the inn. It was a fine fire and a happy social event.

Great for any occasion

  • 5 of 5
Myself and my fellow groomsmen stayed at the Inn Keeper's house for a weekend for our friend's wedding. It was perfect for us. Very spacious rooms and a TREMENDOUS view from the deck looking out into the mountains. The bedrooms were good size and the beds were comfortable. It was only a mile or so away from our reception and it was perfect. I think the Hand House (as it's called at the Inn) could be perfect place for our group of people or any other group of people looking for an affordable, beautiful, and spacious place to stay. If we're ever back in the area I know all of us who stay would look here first.

Owner's Response: The house was built in the 70s on the crest of a hill. It has a big central cathedral space with large windows on three sides of its main floor. So it enjoys commanding views of the estate on two sides and of the valley and the mountains beyond the deck on the third side.
This is the house I as the inn keeper go to relax and work on my computer in complete privacy.
