Dorset House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms 3 full bathrooms 1 half bathroom, please contact Peter 4 rental info

Highland Manor is a luxury home in the country. This home rental in Dorset, Vermont is nestled within six acres of property and has magnificent views of the surrounding mountains. It is well worth the room rates of 200-300$ per bedroom nightly. For individual couples that want the whole house the rate is the weekly rate of 3000-6000 depending on the season. The larger the party the lower the rates go,..... to the minimum nightly room rate of 200$ each room... (800$),....but the Bunkroom is additional and depends on number of occupants but usually goes for 125$ nightly rate with two plus occupants. This makes the rate about 900-1000 nightly. It would be ideal for visitors to vacation for great Winter Skiing, the Vermont Summer Festival (six week horse/equestrian events). This year the most popular week of Christmas is scheduled a bit differently due to the holiday being on Sunday. Therefore, the vacation week is from Friday Dec. 23 to Friday the 30th and is still available .... The week of New Years (from Dec. 30-Jan. 6 and is still available. Sorry this time has a minimum of 5 days as the week always sells out. The basic premise is book early! The estate is 7-12 minutes from the Horse Shows and Events. It is also a prime location for fall foliage viewing as well. House is located 11 minutes from Bromley Ski Mountain which is reputed to be the best Family Ski Mountain on the East Coast. Stratton Mountain is slightly further (about 10-15 min.). The is wonderful hiking right around the corner at the Ethel Pew Nature Conservancy as well as the nearby Equinox Preserve, the Appalachian Trail, and Long Trail and other assorted hikes. Also nearby is fine dining and the heavenly designer Factory Outlet shopping in Manchester Vermont, a theatre at the Dorset playhouse and outdoor activities galore. The library has a wonderful wood burning fireplace, home with beautiful hardwood floors and a large,open kitchen make this home a warm place for families to spend quality time together. Pets are considered by special arrangement with the owner. The Pet Fees are 150$ per pet per week. Two pets maximum please. As well,....Property has parking for multiple vehicles plus the ability to accommodate horse trailers. Serene country setting, but drive down the road and you are in the center of historic Manchester. The house is fully furnished.

Wonderful location and great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We came after Christmas and the house was still beautifully decorated, quiet, charming, and can easily fit large groups. The house was also perfect location, very close to all that Manchester has to offer while also being very convenient to Bromley. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend the house!

Near hiking, cycling, shopping, restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

This charming Vermont home was just right -- near hiking and cycling but close to the restaurants and shopping in Manchester. The house easily handles larger groups. Very peaceful yet not far from the many attractions of southern Vermont.
