Overview

Manchester Center House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, Sleeps 8, 3 Full Baths, 1 Half Bath

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 three 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

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.

Perfect weekend in Vermont!

  • 5 of 5

8 of us stayed this lovely home for the weekend and had the best time. The house is spacious and comfortable, well decorated and has all the amenities you could hope for. The open kitchen looks right out onto the living room, so while cooking you can be chatting with people. The beds were all incredibly comfortable and the house was spotless upon arrival. The views from the patio are breathtaking, and with a close drive into town it really is the perfect spot!!

Second Time and Can't Wait to Return

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this home and everything was just a perfect as the first time. The house is great for a family gathering. Bedrooms are comfy, plenty of space to spread out and the kitchen has everything you could need. We came for a ski trip but Mother Nature didn't quite cooperate. The weather was warm so we took advantage of being so close to Manchester village and the best surprise of all was the great hiking trail right behind the house. Even the dog had a blast! The house was immaculate when we showed up. Ariane has been a pleasure to work with throughout. We hope to return to this special place soon - winter or summer - you can't go wrong staying here.

The Perfect Southern Vermont Home

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks for a wonderful week. For 15 years I have come to Manchester and always stayed at the Equinox. To change things up we decided to rent this house and so glad we did. Location of try home couldn't be better. The charm of the home would be hard to find anywhere as their are so many details to love and too many to even list. The owner couldn't have made our stay any easier by many little touches that really made for an incredible experience. Can't wait to rent again! Thank you!!!

Amazing VT Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have rented several VT homes over the years and this was by far our favorite. The living area and bedrooms are absolutely perfect in terms of having a few couples up for the weekend and the location can't be beat. Two minutes from Equinox and probably another 5 to Manchester Center. It's really a dream home and we will absolutely be renting again.

The Best!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, and our two small kids (ages 4 & 2) and dog stayed at this wonderful house for a week in August. What an absolutely delightful place to spend a vacation. The house is very user-friendly, and the surrounding property and views are simply stunning. There are so many great activities to do in the area- swimming, fishing, golf, etc., not to mention great sites to visit like Hildene Farm, Mount Equinox, and so many others. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and can’t wait to return.

Vermont Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our family has lived in Arlington Vermont since the Revolutionary War. My mother has since retired to Manchester. We came up from NC to visit her and share this home where she could relax, and for once, not have to do anything. She loved being with her family and found this home to be such a treasure. Beautiful home with the classic Vermont feel and mountain view. We lacked for nothing!
