WONDERFULLY COMFORTABLE HOME, AMAZING VILLAGE LOCATION

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, which is accessible for long walks, trails to the Battenkill River, a new boardwalk through the marsh, kite flying, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and even hitting golf balls, or just a great place for kids to run and play.

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.

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

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.

A perfect place for a family reunion

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

Ladies Reunion

Dear Ariane,

Thank you so much for sharing your magnificent home with us. The house was perfect! All of the bedrooms were so cozy. We just adored the living room. It was at times difficult to leave the house to explore Manchester.

You currently have 8 women talking about your beautiful property. I hope you get more vacation rentals from our word of mouth advertising.

We had lunch at Seasons, Zoey's and Ponce's. We had dinner at Ye Olde Tavern and Brasserie L'Oustau. The food and service at all of the restaurants were outstanding. We spent 3 hours at Hildene on Saturday afternoon. What a beautiful place!

My family and I had the most amazing time in this house for a long weekend. There were 8 of us and it comfortably fit all of us perfectly. The house is homey and perfect for a getaway anytime of the year, the property is beautiful and only a 5 minute drive into downtown Manchester for good restaurants and shopping. I can't wait to come back again.
Owner's Response: I am so pleased you had a wonderful weekend in our home. We agree it is a cozy space in a terrific location. We look forward to welcoming you back again.
