About Melissa Levis

I grew up in Manchester, Vermont and have been living in New York City for the past 20 years. I recently moved back to Manchester and have a tremendous appreciation for the beauty and nature and charm of this quintessential beautiful New England town. My parents moved to Vermont (via New York City and Athens, Greece) in 1972. They purchased the Wilburton Inn and rental homes in 1987 and have run it with love ever since. My 3 siblings and I are proud to continue their tradition of hospitality. We love meeting our guests and introducing them to the wonders of a Vermont vacation.

Melissa Levis purchased this house in 1987

Why Melissa Levis chose Manchester

This is a spectacular estate is one mile off the main road so guests can truly relax and truly get away from it all, yet it is centrally located in the heart of Manchester Village - just 1 mile to Hildene and the Equinox Hotel.

What makes this house unique

Visit our organic farm and bakery 3 miles from the house. Enjoy the Museum of the Creative Process sculpture trail that retraces myths and the matriarchs on our 30 acre estate.

Great place for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 families with kids staying in this magnificent home. The staff was super helpful and professional and the house was very well appointed. Town of Manchester had a few nice restaurants and we were 30 minutes away from Stratton and 20 minutes from Bromley.

Will definitely stay here or on other properties managed by Manchester Inn again.

Amazing Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Willburton Inn was exactly what our group of 17 friends were looking for when we planned our long weekend ski trip up to Vermont to get away from busy Boston. The staff and owners are very friendly and the Reunion house (the house we stayed in) was everything we were looking for. We had a wonderful weekend, thank you Willburton Inn!

UNH club ski race team loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The UNH club ski race team stayed in the Reunion House for our race at Bromley. The location was very convenient and the house had rooms to fit all 20 of us! We will definitely be interested in staying there again.

Really fun place

  • 5 of 5

We had a really nice time at the Wilburton inn. We stayed at the Reunion house, it was very homey and had lots of room for everyone (8 adults and 8 kids). The inn keeper and staff are amazing. They really went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time!

Owner's Response: We loved hosting you and your friends and all those 6th grade boys! I'm so glad they enjoyed the cookies and light up glow sticks -- and of course our puppy, Jetson!

Great place for a reunion, or large parties

  • 5 of 5

We are a non-profit organization of young snowboarders and skiiers who travel in groups of 20-25 to VT for our yearly retreat. The house can comfortably accommodate 20+ guests, with a layout that allows for everyone to spend time together in one area. It's fairly close to the shops and village and about 20-30 minutes from Stratton Mountain. With plenty of bathrooms, everyone had quick access to the shower after a long run on the slopes and there's plenty of parking. We enjoyed staying at this house so much that we came back for the second time this year! We recommend this house for large groups, families with children, family reunions and group retreats!

Had a great time here for a 3 day science retreat

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of cell biologists from Yale university who spend a memorable four day science retreat at this property. The house has accommodated 17 of our members (with some people sharing double beds). The living room was spacious and perfect for our science presentation (we brought our own white board); the house was also cosy enough so everyone spend a lot of time together. Our host was kind enough to bring us extra lighting for the presentation. We took advantage of the on-site tennis court for a lab tennis match. A big shopping mall was close by so we could shop for several days food easily. Hiking route was also in easy driving distance. Melissa, our host, has been very welcoming and helpful. Thank you Melissa! I would highly recommend this place for similar science retreat, or other team building activities.

Owner's Response: It's such fun to meet all our smart grad student guests who rent this house. In addition you Yalies, we've hosted Harvard's Kennedy School, Harvard's Journalism School, and Harvard's Undergrad student council. But, since our dad went to Yale Med School, you know we're ever true to the Bulldogs! We're so happy you had such a well rounded road trip to VT and had time for tennis in between talking about research. We look forward to welcoming you again. Melissa

Car: recommended

Manchester Village has been charming guests for over 250 years. 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.
