This home includes a washer/dryer, free Wi-Fi and satellite TV. It has a brand new galley kitchen that was updated in 2015. Best of all there are GORGEOUS views of the Green mountains and Battenkill Valley.

Our inn staff can provide daily/weekly housekeeping, catering, massages, concierge.

The Innkeeper’s Cottage was built in the 1950s as the private home for the first innkeeper of the Wilburton Inn. Guests may enjoy the inn’s pool, tennis court, museum exhibits, restaurant, bar, and 30 acres of sculptures, flower gardens and trees, surrounded by breath-taking mountain views. Step outside your door and enjoy miles of scenic bike rides, walks, and runs on peaceful River Road.

The Dorset Summer Theatre Festival, Vermont Horse Show and Southern Vermont Art Center are nearby. Bromley and Stratton Mountain are only 10 and 18 miles away.

Guests are welcome to stroll over to the 1902 Wilburton Mansion where, for an additional fee, they can indulge in a hearty country breakfast, evening cocktails or gourmet dinner featuring artisanal whole-grain breads and dishes crafted with seasonal produce from the property's family-run organic farm.

The Wilburton Inn accommodates up to 150 guests in 8 buildings of different sizes and styles. It is an ideal private getaway for destination weddings, corporate retreats, family reunions, and private celebrations. Ask us how we can help you plan your next special gathering!

About Melissa Levis

My parents bought the 30 acre Wilburton Inn 27 years ago. The Innkeepers cottage is where the original innkeepers lived when the Wilburton mansion was turning into an inn. We love welcoming families and guests to our beautiful property!

Melissa Levis purchased this cottage in 1987

Why Melissa Levis chose Manchester

The Mountain views are unsurpassed from the living room and dining room. You can eat outside with Mt. Equinox and the vast green lawn in front of your eyes. It's just stunning.

Cozy, Charming, Comfortable Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent five summer weeks this year (2013) and four weeks in '12 at this house on the property of the Wilburton Inn. We keep coming back for a number of reasons: The house is so comfortable as to provide a real "home away from home". The location is fantastic, just minutes away from all Manchester and Dorset have to offer. And most of all the Levis family's warm hospitality and attentiveness make this house rental a very special treat! The Wilburton has larger homes and lovely rooms at the Inn, as well as this specific house.

Owner's Response: It was such a pleasure to have you stay with us this summer. We loved watching your husband enjoy his daily bike rides - and it was so wonderful that you joined us for weekly Farm Nights and my sister's musical debut in Dorset! Enjoy NYC and we look forward to seeing you again next summer! Melissa, Albert, Georgette, and the Levis family

Stay at Ortlieb House

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to rent. We stayed for four weeks over the summer. Not only is the house spacious and comfortable, but the fact that it is on the grounds of the Wilburton Inn make it very special. The innkeepers were committed to making our stay as wonderful an experience as possible. They truly catered to our every need. The best part is that the house faces the mountain, so you feel as if you are secluded, but the village of Manchester is about a 2 minute drive and offers the outlet shops as well as specialty stores, weekly green markets, an assortment of restaurants, concerts, theater, etc. The pictures are quite accurate and show how well maintained the house is. My husband and I heartily recommend this property!
