Manchester Village has been charming guests for over 250 years. It was recently profiled in the NY Times! http://bit.ly/Manchester_VT_New_York_Times_Travel_Section

There is an equal abundance of:

SPORTS (skiing, golfing, hiking, horse back riding, and canoeing/ tubing/fishing on the Battekill.)

CULTURE (Southern VT Art Center, Dorset Theatre Festival, Weston Playhouse, on site Museum of the Creative Process)

ADVENTURE (Bromley's Alpine Slide + Zip Line, British School of Falconry, Land Rover Off Road Driving School, Orivs Fly Fishing School)

SHOPPING (fantastic designer outlet shopping.)

The Wilburton's hilltop estate offers elegance + tranquility. It is located on River Road, 1/2 a mile off the main road, Route 7, so you truly feel away from it all. It is:

1/2 a mile to Abraham Lincoln's son's history estate, Hildene.

1/2 a mile to The Equinox Hotel, spa, and pool.

3 miles to Manchester's outlet shopping.

10 miles to Bromley Mountain.

18 miles to Stratton Mountain.

Sculpture and Museum Collection on the grounds.

8 miles to Dorset Theatre.

Go for bike rides and jogs and strolls on River Road, right out our door.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1987

About: My wife and I have been the owners and innkeepers of The Wilburton Inn for the past 25 years. My wife is from Brooklyn, NY. Her sister, Wendy Wasserstein, honored her by naming Madeline Kahn’s Tony Award winning role, Gorgeous, after her in the Broadway play, The Sisters Rosenswieg. I am a psychiatrist from Athens, Greece. I am interested about art, education, religion, and conflict resolution. We bought our first home in VT in 1972 because the mountains reminded me of my days at medical school in Switzerland. It is our pleasure to see our children and grandchildren now take an interest in running the inn. We enjoy welcoming travelers to our beautiful homes. We love introducing them to the history and beauty of Vermont and The Wilburton Estate.

Why Manchester Center:
This is an exceptional historic mansion with handsome archetecture and sweeping mountain views. They just don't build them like they used to. It's a turn of the century robber baron mansion and now it can be yours!

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
The Wilburton was built in 1902 by Albert Gilbert on a 1200 acre estate. He was a good friend of Robert Todd Lincoln, who also built his summer cottage next door on a 400 acre estate. The Wilburton commands superb panoramic views and two historic mansions, one on the hill and the other in the farm below, which was known as the Old English Inn and is now renamed as the Battenkill Valley Mansion. Tour our outdoor sculpture trains that show the history of love and the evolving images of women through cross cultural myths. Visit our son's Earth Sky Time organic farm and bakery less than 3 miles from the house.
