About Melissa Levis

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

Why Melissa Levis chose Manchester

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

We rented the Green Mt House for a second time -- Manchester a good destination for family and friends coming from both Boston and NYC. Since our group size exceeded the house, we also rented two additional rooms on the Wilburton Inn property. We could all comfortably gather to eat and hang out at the Green Mt House -- nice open floor plan. Beds extremely comfortable; Inn staff helpful and attentive. Stratton Mt a half hour away; Manchester's outlets just five minutes away. The Wilburton property offers opportunities for walking, x-country skiing right out the door.

perfect vermont vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our vacation at the Green Mountain House @ the Wilburton Inn. We were a group of 9, with five children, so we needed a house offering flexible sleeping arrangements and a good common area to hang out. This house exceeded all of our expectations and allowed us to have an easy, great vacation. The layout is perfect, with an open floor plan and space for all to unwind. The bedrooms are clean and spacious, with all sorts of bedding options. And as others have mentioned, the view from the deck is exceptional!

The property's location is perfect - a very short drive to all Manchester has to offer and just a few more minutes to Bromley. We really loved the Wilburton for this reason - it's just perfectly situated for whatever you may be doing on your vacation. We were skiing every day at Bromley and never tired of the drive.

We also enjoyed the idea of staying in a private home with access to the inn's facilities. It's a different experience than renting a home and being all by yourself (convenience, safety, maintenance...). And while we didn't attend, the New Year's festivities at the inn looked super fun.

To be fair, the décor is a bit dated in some regards, but I think that adds to the charm and the experience. Think 'Mad Men' on vacation and you're there. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for choosing our Green Mt House for your Vermont Vacation. We are so glad you enjoyed it! A few guests have mentioned that they feel like they've entreated a Mad Men set when they enter the house! So glad that the size of the house worked so well for your group - and it's true, you just can't beat the view from the deck. We look forward to seeing you again. Melissa

Great house with gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

Came here for MLK weekend for my sister's bachelorette with a total of 12 girls and the Green Mountain House was perfect for our needs! The house was clean and we loved the open concept living room, kitchen, and dining area. The kitchen was also fully stocked so all we had to do was bring the groceries. We were concerned that with 12 girls and the cold temperatures we would run out of hot water, but there was plenty which is definitely something worth mentioning. The only thing I would note is that the house technically sleeps 11 as one of the beds is a crib. We spoke to the front desk and they said our options would be a cot or airbed, but that the couch was probably much more comfortable than those two options so we went with that. Shortly after Ed stopped by and made sure we were all set and brought by extra linens, pillows, toiletries, etc and said he would be more than happy to set up the cot or airbed...turns out the couch is actually super comfortable! The house is an excellent location, just a short 5 min drive to everything. Overall our stay was great and I would definitely recommend this property to others!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for coming to join us for your bachelorette party! We're so glad you all had a great time. The open layout of the dining/living/ kitchen really makes it fun to hang out. We really appreciate you choosing our house and look forward to welcoming you back for the next happy event! Melissa

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!!
