Built in 1890 by Robert Todd Lincoln's best friend and law partner, the Edward S. Isham House is only 1.5 miles from the heart of Manchester Village with its charming boutiques and galleries. Walk down the marble sidewalks of Manchester to enjoy excellent restaurants, a wonderful bookstore, perfect cafes, and some of the finest outlet shopping available anywhere. The Isham House is nestled in the valley between the 3,816 foot Mount Equinox and the imposing Green Mountains. From the front door of the Isham House, you can go hiking up and around Mt. Equinox. Within a short drive, you can go biking, kayaking, or fly-fishing on the famous Battenkill River. Located on the main road passable in all weather, the Isham House is only a 10 minute drive from Bromley and 20 minutes away from Stratton ski area. If you prefer, walk around the corner to Hildene -- Robert Todd Lincoln's estate -- and take a tour of its lovely Georgian mansion, or go cross country skiing through its groomed trails and finish with a hot chocolate in its quaint warming hut.

As hosts, we will welcome you as family. We provide you with recommendations for local eats, shops, sights and countless activities.

My husband, Jed, and I live in Nyack, NY - a small town just north of New York City. I am a professional organizer, and Jed teaches English and philosophy at a prep school in the Bronx. We love to hike in Vermont with our standard poodles, Rufus & Bessie, and look for out of the way swimmin' holes. Jed's family has owned the Isham house since 1991, when it was a run-down working barn. Jed's father Bernie good see the building's 'good bones' and renovated it to it's current beauty. We take a tremendous amount of pride and joy in offering it to other families to enjoy.

Lilli Weisz purchased this barn in 1991

We converted the Isham House into a home because the area offered us a rare mix of outdoor activities, culture, history, and outlet shopping (!).

You can walk to the trails of Mt. Equinox from the front door. We are on the main road and are only a 5 minute drive from town. The house is large enough to sleep 14 people but cozy enough for a perfect Vermont weekend getaway!

Could not ask for more

This property is very spacious. Myself and some friends met up for a ski weekend at Stratton, and it was the best place. Minutes away from the spa and shopping but still only 25 minutes from the mountain. Everyone enjoyed the location.

Perfect house for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5
The Isham house is a beautiful home that meets the needs of all age groups! The baby gear and toys were perfect for the little ones, while the downstairs room was accessible for our grandparents. The kitchen was stocked with everything that we needed for our stay. The location was perfect for everyone. Some of us were able to ski, while others visited the outlets. It was a great stay and we can't wait to return!

Wonderful Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We had such a fabulous stay at the Edward Isham House. We came to ski at Bromley Mt and found travel between the two easy and appreciated the house's proximity to Manchester Center. The house surpassed our expectations in every way. It was immaculate, very well appointed, and had a cozy feel despite its large size. I don't think the photos do it justice!! The layout was perfect for two families with the kids enjoying their space in the loft, and the adults relaxing by the wood stove downstairs. The owners provided excellent and flexible customer service before and during our stay making us feel most welcome. I highly recommend this property and we're already talking about making our visit an annual tradition!

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5
We spent the week between Christmas and New Year's day at the Isham house and had a great time at this interesting and unique home. Our party consisted of 6 adults, 4 children and 2 dogs. The rental more than met our every need. It was spacious and comfortable. The owner has stocked the house with numerous extras that one would not expect in a rental property. The kitchen was better equipped than any property we have rented. It is obvious that the owner takes pride in this house, and tries to make renters as comfortable as possible. In addition, the owner and his support staff were extremely accommodating in every way. What more could we have asked for? Nothing except more snow.

Car: recommended

The Historic Edward S. Isham Carriage House sits on Historic Route 7A in the town of Manchester. Because of its rural location, it is sometimes difficult to find the Isham House on GPS or Google maps. To see its exact location, Google 'Ormsby Hill Inn' in Manchester. The Isham House is directly adjacent to the inn (approximately 150 yards to the north).

Other Activities: Canoe and kayaking, Outlet shopping

Golf: There are two remarkable golf courses near the Isham House. Gleneagles, owned by the Equinox Resort, is a links style course that is beautifully maintained. Stratton Mountain also boasts a course that has hosted LPGA events in recent years.

Ski: The Isham House is smack dab in the middle of ski country. Stratton Mountain -- known for its deluxe facilities, gondola to a 4500 foot summit, and sun bowl -- is a 20 minute drive away. Bromley, a resort renowned for the quality of its ski instruction and challenging terrain, is less than 15 minutes from the house. Magic Mountain and Okemo are also options nearby.

Hildene -- adjacent to the Isham House -- offers groomed trails for cross country skiing. Having undergone an extensive renovation on the last few years, Hildene is an excellent destination for those who like to keep their skis on flat ground.
