The Manchester View

The Best Views In Southern Vermont

Offering the best views in Southern Vermont, The Manchester View is an award-winning, fine lodging property, combining the warmth and charm of a family owned, New England country inn with resort-style service and amenities. Seated high up on a hill with magnificent, sweeping views of the historic Route 7A Valley, it is just a mile and a half north of the center of Manchester Village, and two miles south of Dorset Village. The hotel offers convenient proximity to local shops and restaurants, as well as to some of Vermont’s best ski resorts; including Bromley, Stratton and Magic Mountain. Nestled on a tranquil property surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens, the 36 guest rooms, which include specialty rooms, and one and two bedroom suites, are all tastefully appointed, with attractive features like working gas or wood fireplaces, and deep-soaking spa tubs. Every accommodation has its own deck or patio from which the guests can bask in the beauty of the spectacular mountain views. In the summer, there is an outdoor heated pool to relax in, while in the winter, there is nothing better than enjoying the warmth of a cozy fire after an exhilarating day out on the slopes.

Pat and Tom Barnett, the owner-innkeepers of the Manchester View, since 1977, have earned numerous awards and accolades, including the prestigious Three Diamond Award from AAA , and they continue to take pride in offering each guest the best in country elegance and service.


"Our stay was very pleasant. The front desk staff was extremely cordial, answering questions about nearby restaurants that could accommodate a gluten allergy. Our room was large, clean, and comfortable with a private deck that provided a breathtaking view of the surrounding area. We enjoyed a swim in the outdoor pool which was beautifully maintained. The Manchester View is a real gem!"
