My wife and I bought this home and the Wilburton Inn in 1987. We love welcoming guests and entertaining. I am from Athens, Greece and have been a doctor for 45 years. My wife loves to plan country weddings and decorate and garden. I love to share my art collection, museum and sculptures with the guests.

Melissa Levis purchased this house in 1978

This is a fantastic private home in the heart of Manchester Village. The views are stunning. It has great entertaining space. It's in the center of our charming New England town, but in a completely serene hilltop environment.

Tour the onsite Museum of the Creative Process and explore the history of love and mythology though our outdoor sculpture garden.

Visit our organic farm and bakery less than 3 miles away. See our Spanish oven where our son makes 1,500 loaves of bread each week! Feed the chickens and help us in the organic garden.

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

a great vacation

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 !

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
  • Submitted: Mar 5, 2013
  • Stayed: Feb 2013
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.

Owner's Response: Please come back and see how it's gotten even more Mad Men in the decor. We're getting 8 autographed Peter Max posters too!
Thanks for writing in and coming to visit!

HAND HOUSE - EXCELLENT FOR A FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 22, 2010
  • Stayed: Jul 2009
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.
