About Mark Miness
During the week, I live in NYC, but try to spend as many weekends up in Vermont as possible. I bought the house in 2008 when I returned to the NY area in order to give myself a retreat away from all the stress of NYC. I'm always making improvements to the house (new pictures coming soon!), and it just keeps getting better and better. It's a wonderful unique house that lends itself perfectly to spending time with friends and family. I've truly enjoyed every minute spent there and I am sure you will too!

Why Mark Miness chose Manchester Village
I have wonderful memories of spending time in Vermont with my family as a child. When I was looking for a weekend house, Manchester just seemed like the perfect fit. It's a year round community that offers the best outdoor activities during any season. Additionally, the people are so welcoming and I always feel relaxed in these suroundings. When you get to the house, the stress of every day life just seems to melt away.
What makes this House unique
The house is just minutes away from many activities. We are located at the base of Equinox Mountain, with the trail-head literally a 5 minutes walk from our front door. In addition, we are within walking distance to shopping, Hildene, Equinox Resort, golf, tennis, and so much more. With that said, the house is so inviting and enjoyable that it can sometimes be difficult to leave for any reason.

Great property and very comfortable
My family was very happy at this property for our winter ski getaway. Location was perfect for our desire to ski a few different mountains and use this as home base. The house was very well appointed, the kitchen appliances are great! Loved the rustic look and feel.
Mark was extremely responsive to emails and inquiries and responded very quickly.
I would definitely recommend this house and owner. I hope to be able to stay here again at some point in the future.
Thank you, Lisa!!! You guys were the perfect guests and I truly appreciate how well you looked after the house and how easy you were to work with! We are beginning a big renovation of the main level (new floors throughout, opening up the space a bit) and downstairs area (adding bathroom and opening up the bedroom area) next month so we look forward to welcoming you back the next time you are coming to Manchester and can't wait to hear your thoughts on the improvements!
A Very Special Place
We rented Harley House for the ski season last winter and we'll be renting it again this winter. (The ultimate endorsement, no?) It truly is a special home, offering Vermont charm with a clean and contemporary look and feel. The owner, Mark, has proven to be the best "landlord" we've ever dealt with. He cares deeply for the property and it shows in how he's maintained it. Our only regret is that we haven't yet experienced the place in warm weather. With its large porch and beautiful sprawling lawn, it would make for some really fantastic cocktail hours during the summer.
Great location, beautiful house!
I recently stayed at Harley House for a week during the Vermont Summer Festival horse show. The house was beautiful, and ideally located just around the corner from the Equinoxx Hotel which is an amazing location for dinner or a drink.
The house was a relaxing getaway after spending long hours at the horse show.
The owner of the house was also very easy to work with and accommodating.
