For your Vermont get-away, a wonderful home away from home, welcoming, cozy, comfortable, with luxury details, and sited on the most impressive location in Manchester Village. The house abuts and overlooks the protected 40 acre Hildene Meadow, with mountain views, and gorgeous sunsets.

Our home is completely outfitted with the finest handmade furniture, the best of beds and linens, flat screen TV, high speed internet, game room, ping pong table, wood burning stove, central air, patio and a screened porch. Barbeque out back, watch the sun set over the mountains, enjoy an evening around the fire pit or gather together in the screened cottage.

We are four minutes from the Equinox Resort & Spa, the Hildene Estate, the Gleneagles Golf Course, and 15 minutes to Bromley, 25 minutes to Stratton Mountain, and 20 minutes to the Vermont Summer Festival Horse Show. A perfect location as we are 5 minutes to the center of Manchester offering shopping, restaurants, galleries, and antiquing, yet you will feel as though you are is the heart of the Vermont countryside.

With all the comforts of home this is the perfect location for a family gathering, or time spent with friends.

About Ariane Tallman

This house was originally purchased to be part of the inventory for a high end vacation home club. It was furnished, outfitted, and detailed with this purpose in mind. The business was ultimately sold, but we retained the property. Our family has enjoyed many gatherings at this wonderful home, as have numerous guests. We welcome you to also enjoy a special experience in a home away from home.

Ariane Tallman purchased this House in 2003

Why Ariane Tallman chose Manchester Village

We sought a house in a location that had the feel of being among the mountains and meadows of Vermont, but not isolated. We are minutes away from everything, great restaurants, shopping, art galleries, antiquing, spas, and all the sports associated with the Vermont seasons.

                                                                  Andrea P.

                                                                  This is a beautifully-maintained property. The house has many antique elements and feels like it is an old house, though it is not and is very modern in many aspects (heated bathroom floor in master bedroom, ceramic stove. smart TV, etc). It seems freshly painted and has well-selected art (largely reproductions) on the walls. Our family settled in quickly, as the house is very, very comfortable. Great couches, comfortable beds with lovely linens. There is lots of space for everyone. The views of the fields, mountains and sunsets were very beautiful - I can imagine them being so in all seasons. We cooked a Thanksgiving dinner in the well-equipped kitchen. The owners were very responsive throughout the rental process and Veronica, the house manager was very helpful and reassuring, offering 24-hour availability should there be any emergencies (which there weren't!). We made good use of the ping-pong table and enjoyed the availability of books and puzzles in the game room. We felt that we were deep in the country, yet were only a few minutes from Manchester. All in all, we had a great time here, enjoying Vermont views and feeling very warm and cosy. Highly recommended!!!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  I could have not asked for a more thoughtful, and comprehensive review. All the highlights of our home are mentioned, all those we particularly want future guests to understand about a visit to our home. Thank you so much for taking the time to go beyond a few words. Hope to welcome you again.

                                                                  Leila N.

                                                                  This is a beautiful home located very close to town. My family rented the home for the long weekend and could not be more pleased. We are a picky crew and this one passed the test! Beautiful bathrooms and bedrooms, cozy family rooms, and a stunning view in the back. This house was a joy for the adults as well as our 3 young boys who played soccer outside and looked at the cows in the field nearby and also our dog who loved romping around in the grass. Owner was responsive and helpful, and left a very lovely welcome note and treat for us upon arrival. We come to Vermont every year and will definitely stay again!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  100-year old look & feel with every modern amenity

Cozy and comfortable and plenty of room. Beds were luxurious too. House is air conditioned, which was welcome since it was a record-setting 90 degrees during our stay. We will be back to enjoy this immaculate home again and again.
