About Melissa Levis

My wife and I have been the owners and innkeepers of The Wilburton Inn for the past 25 years. My wife is from Brooklyn, NY. Her sister, Wendy Wasserstein, honored her by naming Madeline Kahn’s Tony Award winning role, Gorgeous, after her in the Broadway play, The Sisters Rosenswieg. I am a psychiatrist from Athens, Greece. I am interested about art, education, religion, and conflict resolution. I look forward to giving a TED talk on the future of creativity this summer.

We bought our first home in VT in 1972 because the mountains reminded me of my days at medical school in Switzerland. It is our pleasure to see our children and grandchildren now take an interest in running the inn. We enjoy welcoming travelers to our beautiful homes. We love introducing them to the history and beauty of Vermont and The Wilburton Estate.

Melissa Levis purchased this hotel in 1987

Why Melissa Levis chose Manchester

This estate combines, history, arts, ideas, a farm and a bakery. Just what the turn of the century robber barons aspired for when they built a number of mountain retreats in the Berkshires and in Vermont. We have put it all together for us, for them and for you.

What makes this hotel unique

The Wilburton is a member of the Historic Hotels of America. It was built in 1902 by Albert Gilbert on a 1200 acre estate. He was a good friend of Robert Todd Lincoln, who also built his summer cottage next door on a 400 acre estate. The Wilburton commands superb panoramic views and two historic mansions, one on the hill and the other in the farm below, which was known as the Old English Inn and is now renamed as the Battenkill Valley Mansion.

Tour our outdoor sculpture trains that show the history of love and the evolving images of women through cross cultural myths.

Visit our son's Earth Sky Time organic farm and bakery less than 3 miles from the house.

A special place

  • 5 of 5
We just stayed at the Inn in the Equinox Views Villa and had a wonderful time. Our room was huge with a very comfortable king-sized bed. We loved walking out of the door and into nature but still having the main Mansion be easily accessible for breakfast and hanging out in the main room. I was there during a wedding and the breakfast was incredible, with an assortment of bread made by the owners’ son and breathtaking views overlooking the mountains. I wasn't part of the wedding, but I found myself wishing I had gotten married there. The owners were hard at work from early in the morning until late at night making sure the couple had the wedding of their dreams. This is a family-run business with family photos in the main room of the mansion and I loved that lived-in, eclectic vibe. It's a very special place.

Wilburton Inn

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at the Wilburton Inn over the Christmas/New Years week. We had 3 families and 3 kids between the ages of 1 1/2 and 3 1/2.
The accommodations were not new, but very charming and probably the best that we have had in all the years that we have been renting in the Manchester area. The house was spacious and we all had our privacy. The living room/dining room area was very large and great for the kids.The kitchen was fairly well stocked. It was great having a washer and dryer in a spacious laundry room.
The location was very convenient, and the grounds were good for sledding, hiking, snowshoeing, etc. There was plenty of room to move around. Although we did not use it, having a restaurant in the main building is a very convenient feature
The owner and his staff were very gracious and tried to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We are all looking forward to a return trip in the near future.

Owner's Response: This family also had three beautiful Irish setters who found their home in the separate laundry room.
When I suggested this guest to write a review he hesitated to share his impressions out of concern of the house becoming too popular and being left out the next time he visited. So indeed he made sure to reserve three other dates this year before sending in his review.

I am delighted when everything works well and I was a very happy innkeeper this New Year's week end as all my guests felt content for their stays this critical and busy time.

One topic of conversation was how many years people have been coming back to the inn and its houses. We have owned it 23 years. Among the guests were families that have been here 20 years in a row, 15 times and six times.

The proof of the approval of my place was that upon leaving many guests were making a reservation to come back the next New Year.

Manchester Village has been charming guests for over 250 years. It was recently profiled in the NY Times! http://bit.ly/Manchester_VT_New_York_Times_Travel_Section

There is an equal abundance of:

SPORTS (skiing, golfing, hiking, horse back riding, and canoeing/ tubing/fishing on the Battekill.)

CULTURE (Southern VT Art Center, Dorset Theatre Festival, Weston Playhouse, on site Museum of the Creative Process)

ADVENTURE (Bromley's Alpine Slide + Zip Line, British School of Falconry, Land Rover Off Road Driving School, Orivs Fly Fishing School)

SHOPPING (fantastic designer outlet shopping.)

The Wilburton's hilltop estate offers elegance + tranquility. It is located on River Road, 1/2 a mile off the main road, Route 7, so you truly feel away from it all. It is:

1/2 a mile to Abraham Lincoln's son's history estate, Hildene.

1/2 a mile to The Equinox Hotel, spa, and pool.

3 miles to Manchester's outlet shopping.

10 miles to Bromley Mountain.

18 miles to Stratton Mountain.

Sculpture and Museum Collection on the grounds.

8 miles to Dorset Theatre.

Go for bike rides and jogs and strolls on River Road, right out our door.
