Overview

Manchester House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, Sleeps 8, 3 Full Baths, 1 Half Bath

For your Vermont get-away, a wonderful home away from home, welcoming, cozy, comfortable, with luxury details, and sited on the most impressive location in Manchester Village. The house abuts and overlooks the protected 40 acre Hildene Meadow, with mountain views, and gorgeous sunsets.

Our home is completely outfitted with the finest handmade furniture, the best of beds and linens, flat screen TV, game room, ping pong table, wood burning stove, central air, patio and a screened porch. Barbeque out back, watch the sun set over the mountains, enjoy an evening around the fire pit or gather together in the screened cottage.

We are three minutes from the Equinox Resort & Spa, the Hildene Estate, the Gleneagles Golf Course, and 15 minutes to Bromley, 25 minutes to Stratton Mountain, and 20 minutes to the Vermont Summer Festival Horse Show. A perfect location as we are 5 minutes to the center of Manchester offering shopping, restaurants, galleries, and antiquing, yet you will feel as though you are is the heart of the Vermont countryside.

With all the comforts of home this is the perfect location for a family gathering, or time spent with friends.

About Ariane Tallman

This house was originally purchased to be part of the inventory for a high end vacation home club. It was furnished, outfitted, and detailed with this purpose in mind. The business was ultimately sold, but we retained the property. Our family has enjoyed many gatherings at this wonderful home, as have numerous guests. We welcome you to also enjoy a special experience in a home away from home.

Ariane Tallman purchased this house in 2003

Why Ariane Tallman chose Manchester

We sought a house in a location that had the feel of being among the mountains and meadows of Vermont, but not isolated. We are minutes away from everything, great restaurants, shopping, art galleries, antiquing, spas, and all the sports associated with the Vermont seasons.

Luxury Getaway with all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We have had the good fortune to stay in this amazing house twice with our family. We have 3 children -- ages 10,8 and 4 and they love it as much as we do. We love snuggling up in front of the wood burning stove, playing ping pong, eating in the beautiful dining room. The location is perfect -- so close to the Equinox, the shops of Manchester and the Bromley and Stratton ski areas. While we love exploring the area, we always look forward to coming home to this beautiful and cozy house.

Ariane makes everything so easy about renting it -- assuming you are fast enough to book it as it is a very sought after property. The lovely caretaker comes to walk you through the house upon arrival, there are notes everywhere about how things work (the cable, the jacuzzi,etc.).

We have yet to find a more pleasant rental experience and always look forward to coming back.

Our 2nd Family Vacation in this Impressive Home!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy to have spent our 2nd family vacation in this beautiful home with our children and grandchildren. It is just as comfortable and inviting as we remembered it to be—we all feel very much “at home” there! Once again we enjoyed every detail of the home (it is more spacious & beautiful than depicted in the photos) and all that it has to offer. Everyone wanted their same bedroom as last year—loving the comfy beds & bathrobes, not to mention the 5-star hotel quality bathrooms--my son-in-law (an engineer) and daughter’s boyfriend (an architect) both commented on the beautiful, high end fixtures and custom built cabinetry :) Not only is the house impressive, but the location as well. I love the drive down the road and up to the house—it’s beautiful!! There is a feeling of complete privacy on this gorgeous lot overlooking the meadow and yet we were minutes from all the lovely shops, outlets and restaurants. We have been coming to Manchester this time of year for over 4 years now for the Mt. Equinox Hill Climb—the best thing we ever did was to find this amazing home and plans are to return again next year! Thanks again to Ariane for everything!

What a great house!

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! We were a group of three couples in Manchester for the wedding of a close friend's daughter. All of us were thrilled that we made

the decision to rent this house and not stay at one of the local inns. The

location is amazing - just outside of town but very private with beautiful

views out the back of the conservation area. The house itself is very well

appointed. We cooked several dinners, taking advantage of the gas grill,

and found everything else we needed in the fully equipped kitchen. The

rooms are all beautifully decorated (I have a weakness for tiger maple

furniture) and the living room is especially comfortable with overstuffed chairs and couches. This was such a great place to relax with our friends. The bedrooms and baths were perfect for us, I am sure much better than we could have found at any of the local inns. What more can I say? If you are looking for a house in

the Manchester area this house should be at the top of your list. You

won't be disappointed.

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two kids (ages 6 & 4), and I rented this property over Spring Break earlier this month. April isn't generally considered the ideal month to visit Vermont, but our experience here could not have been any more perfect. The views around the entire house, and especially overlooking the backyard, are absolutely spectacular -- even nicer than the pictures would suggest. All of the accommodations were great and the house's location is perfect for anyone looking for a quiet relaxing vacation.

Ariane was excellent to work with and available to answer all our questions. She also gave us excellent suggestions that made our stay an even more memorable experience.

Needless to say, I highly recommend this property. We hadn't even been there a day before deciding to rent it again for two weeks this upcoming summer.

A perfect place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

After a long days travel we opened the door to the house and it instantly felt like home. The snow was thick outside but the house was warm, cosy and inviting. We prepared supper and sat around the fire for the first of our many famiy get togethers. After relaxing hot showers we all got into our wonderfully comfy beds. The following day we went to buy our Christmas Tree from the local Garden Centre, and had great fun dressing it, we hadn't done this together since we were children. We went to Manchester Village to do our Christmas Shopping, (on more than one occassion), we shopped 'til we dropped! Then on Christmas Eve we did some mammoth wrapping and covered the front room in presents -"It was beginning to look a lot like Christmas". We spent many hours walking in the Park at the back of the house, the snowy scenes were beautiful and the frozen Battenkill River was amazing. We went to The Silver Fork for a memorable dinner, Melody was the perfect host. We also had many lunches in town, we visited Seasons, Zoeys, Mullighans, Firefly, Christo's, The Other Woman and The Spiral Press at the Bookstore, we couldn't fault any of them. A must is the Muscians Tart from Mother Myricks, the Speciality Cheeses from Al Ducci's Deli and a variety of Exceptional Wines from Manchester Beverages. Returning to our wonderful home and preparing a meal together in our lovely kitchen was such a treat. We spent a day at Hildene, and despite the extreme cold, we had a fantastic time, also touring the beautiful surrounding countryside and villages was outstanding, they are so pretty. After a spectacular New Year it was time for us all to reluctantly leave our new found home in River Road, reluctant firstly because we had such a special time here and secondly it was time to say goodbye and for us all to return to the various parts of the globe. Ariane we can't thank you enough for making our dreams become a reality and sharing your spectacular home with us. We hope to return someday and do it all again, in the meantime we will have to make do with looking at our hundreds of photos we took of our family in your amazing home - what fantastic memories we have! We can recommend this home to anyone looking for a special vacation in idylic surroundings

Kindest Regards

The Peters Family, New Zealand.
