About Melissa Levis

The Levis family has owned the Wilburton Inn & 8 Vermont vacation properties since 1987. We are a creative family that loves working together and welcoming travelers. Because we are a close family, we especially enjoy hosting multi-generational family reunions.

Innkeeper Georgette Levis, was the sister of Lazard CEO Bruce Wasserstein and beloved Broadway playwright Wendy Wasserstein. Guests are always surprised to see the huge Sisters Rosensweig poster in the inn’s living room. Georgette's fnick-name was Gorgeous and she inspired Madeleine Kahn's Tony award winning role in Wendy’s Broadway hit.

Patriarch Albert is a psychiatrist from Athens, Greece. He is the founder of Moral Science, the curator of The Museum of the Creative Process, and enjoys discussing conflict resolution, religion, and psychology with guests.

The 4 Levis children include

Tajlei: an Andover, Columbia, and NYU law school grad who lives in NYC and is writing the Broadway bound musical adaptation of the TV classic, Green Acres.

Melissa: a Middlesex School, Brown University and NYU award-winning songwriter entertained thousands of NYC preschoolers with her band Moey’s Music Party. Melissa is delighted to be the new Maria Von Trapp and Vermont singing innkeeper.

Oliver: a Cornell grad (where he met his wife Bonnie) Together they founded Earth Sky Time Community Farm & Bakery, a thriving organic farm 3 miles from the inn. Their breads are a delicious part of the Wilburton inn breakfast and their organic farm night dinners every Wednesday in summer are not to be missed!

Max: a Columbia, Harvard Divinity School and soon to be Boston University PhD. Max is the family intellectual and could have been a wonderful rabbi but instead chose to be a scholar and innkeeper. Max collaborates with Albert to pioneer an on-line program of emotional education and self-knowledge.

The 3rd Generation ranges from Theo, a 15 year-old NYC hispter to Oliver and Bonnie's upcoming baby this Spring!

Melissa Levis purchased this house in 1987

Why Melissa Levis chose Manchester Center

This house is located on a spectacular, historic, 30 acre hilltop estate with phenomenal views of the green mountains. It is 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

We can cater your events at the house through our inn.

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.

Though you have a fantastic kitchen in this rental home, you can relax on vacation and stroll over to the Wilburton Mansion for a delicious breakfast or dinner.

Wonderful stay at beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Green Mountain House for a weekend with family to celebrate my grandmother's life. Everyone was responsive and extremely helpful, and the house itself was the perfect place for us. We had exactly the right amount of space with 11 adults (3 couples and 5 by themselves) and had plenty of extra space when we had a few extra relatives over during the day for dinner and games. The rooms are all spacious and comfortable, and the common areas are extremely relaxing. The views are also spectacular and the grounds are a great place to walk around and enjoy nature. Would definitely recommend and hope we have an occasion to celebrate here again as well.

Green Mountain Getaway 2017

  • 5 of 5

For a special birthday, 8 of us stayed in the Green Mountain house for a long weekend. Just in time for a big snow storm! The staff & Melissa were so responsive and helpful. The property has so many great amenities (cleared the snow off our cars/shoveled and plowed - to mention a few). The main living/kitchen/dining areas were great to relax with a fire, room for all of us at the dining table and a stocked kitchen with all necessities. All rooms were spacious and the house was very clean. Skiing, shopping and restaurants were all close and easily accessible. We ran to Shaw's (supermarket) for a few food items - but everything else was available in the house. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you so much for a memorable weekend!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 adults and 2 young children (1 1/2 and 3 1/2 years) stayed at the Green Mountain House for 5 nights during the 2016 mid-February freeze. The ample warmth inside - both from the heaters and from everyone's good spirits due to the comforts of this home - made this a special 1st time family vacation. The house has a lovely large living room that includes a working fireplace. There is a well-equipped kitchen that allowed easy preparation of meals enjoyed as a family around the large table in the dining room. The arrangement of bedrooms on the 2 floors of the house allowed for the children and their parents to occupy adjacent rooms on the main floor, with everyone else in the bedrooms upstairs. For the skiers among us, including a first time 3 1/2 year-old, the house is wonderfully located just minutes from Bromley and approximately 40 minutes from Stratton. Melissa and her family and staff at the Wilburton Inn deserve special mention for their warmth and attentiveness – be it for lending books and games to the children or for quickly responding to our occasional request. Our time at Green Mountain House was a 5-star family vacation that we all agreed should be repeated!

Green Mountain House

  • 5 of 5

We (party of 10) have stayed at Green Mountain House during the last week of 2015. We all enjoyed and loved this house. The house was a very cozy and full of characters. The host (Melissa) was superb nice and sweet and great friendly/prompt service from the estate. The estate was in the great location with beautiful mountain view and less than 10 mins drive to Manchester Village Outlet.

a lovely place to stay with family and friends

  • 5 of 5

The Levis family is a special one, as is their Wilburtin Inn.

We were fortunate to stay at the Green Mt.House, as it was comfortable, very well kept and a a great space. With the large living, dining and kitchen space there was enough room for 4 adults , 3 children and our lab.

We had friends in for dinner and the housewas perfect for entertaining.

Finally, mattresses are important to us and all the beds were comfy.

We rented the Green Mt House for a second time -- Manchester a good destination for family and friends coming from both Boston and NYC. Since our group size exceeded the house, we also rented two additional rooms on the Wilburton Inn property. We could all comfortably gather to eat and hang out at the Green Mt House -- nice open floor plan. Beds extremely comfortable; Inn staff helpful and attentive. Stratton Mt a half hour away; Manchester's outlets just five minutes away. The Wilburton property offers opportunities for walking, x-country skiing right out the door.
