Create the Manchester Vermont destination wedding of your dreams!
The Wilburton Inn is an elegant historic estate in Manchester Village, Vermont with a 1902 mansion, rolling lawns, gardens and fabulous views – the perfect location for a destination country wedding. We can accommodate 225 guests for a wedding reception and up to 130 overnight guests on our 30- acre hilltop and nearby mansions.
There is room to roam surrounded by thrilling mountain views, sculptures and art to inspire your creativity. We’ll help you plan a full weekend of activities for your family and friends to enjoy together, including rehearsal dinner, bonfire, brunch, farm tours and hikes. Enjoy the sparkling pool, tennis and lawn games right on our property. We offer a unique setting for rehearsal dinners and welcome party bonfires.
Begin your outdoor ceremony with a grand entrance down the marble staircase to the grand lawn. The views from our hilltop of the surrounding mountains are gorgeous in every season! Enjoy a cocktail hour on the hilltop overlook or on the Mansion’s awning-covered terrace. For your reception, discover our brand new Vermont marble pavilion tent — with room for 225+ guests to dine and dance together, with sunset views of the Green Mountains.
The Wilburton’s chef creates delicious menus ranging from rehearsal dinner BBQ to elegant banquets, all of which can be customized to your taste. We are affiliated with Earth Sky Time Farm, which bakes wood-fired organic bread served at breakfast and events, and can provide farm-to-table vegetarian catering. You may also bring your own caterer. If you prefer a more rustic country style, consider our DIY farm venue: The Barn at Levity Mountain — a traditional Vermont barn on a 200-acre farm in Manchester.
The Wilburton has been owned and run by the Levis family with love for more than 30 years. We give each wedding couple our full attention, helping them to create their own magnificent and memorable celebration. Come up to The Wilburton and experience for yourself the beauty of this grand and romantic setting. Call (802) 362-2500 for more information. We look forward to hearing about your plans!
"We held our perfect wedding weekend at the Wilburton Inn for 100 guests. The majority of our family and friends are based in NJ and so our dream was to host a Vermont destination wedding that would feel like a weekend getaway with our loved ones. The Wilburton Inn was perfect for this in every way. We were able to host all of our guests exclusively on the property - in the mansion & its accompanying vacation rentals. Our celebration included a welcome dinner bbq & bonfire, a ceremony held on the great lawn, cocktail hour overlooking the mountains & a tented reception in the gorgeous new marble pavilion. Breakfast was included each morning for our guests & every single person raved about the food, the wonderful accommodations, & the welcoming staff. Planning a wedding from afar can be intimidating but Michele, the inn's coordinator, was an absolute dream to work with. We visited the inn on three occasions prior to the wedding & on each visit Michele's care & attention made me feel like the only bride in the world. She thought of everything, asked all the right questions, & made insightful suggestions - she also recommended vendors we worked with including our photographer & florist. On the big day everything ran seamlessly with perfect little touches - my favorite was the "moment alone" with my new husband in the bridal suite just after our ceremony, a luxurious moment to sneak away & soak up being newly married with a champagne toast & hors d'oeuvres. Our guests continue to rave saying it was the best wedding they've attended & they all vow to return to Vermont just to stay in Manchester & the Wilburton Inn. The inn & its surrounds are a living museum & that is due to the family owners the Levis whose wit, wisdom & warmth instantly made them part of our family & friends. My new husband & I are so grateful that their story is now part of our story. Everyone - Michele, Chef Paul, Melissa Levis & family (including doggie concierge Jetson!), & the entire staff of the inn - went above & beyond for us & all of our guests. We can not recommend the Wilburton Inn highly enough. Thank you Wilburton!"Posted By AAKilroy, May 20,2019 5 stars (source)
