Manchester Center farmhouse description

This lovely 6 bedroom home which sleeps 12 people is a perfect place for a family vacation. The great room, connected to the kitchen and dining room is the favorite place for family activity while enjoying the fire and views of the mountains. The second living room provides a more tranquil place to relax in case you chose to be away from the hub-bub of the great room. The Farm table in the dining room seats 12 people for outstanding family dinners. The porch is fantastic summer, fall and winter. Sitting on the porch in the summer enjoying the view of the pasture, horses and mountains is equally wonderful as enjoying the views during the winter from the hottub. The playroom is a terrific place to let the kids watch a movie, if the adults want some quiet time in the great room. Walking/hiking trails are just steps from our front door. Skiing is 10 miles from our home.

                  Our home in Manchester is located on a tranquil eight acres over looking thousands of acres of mountains, yet it is a 5 minute drive to town where you will find outlet shopping, excellent dining, antiquing. Just 5 more minutes down the road you will find some of the best skiing Vermont has to offer.

                  In the winter we are just minutes from skiing. We are 11 miles from Bromley Mountain and 16 miles from Stratton Mountain. There is also snow shoeing and cross country skiing 3 miles from our home at the Equinox Golf Course. There is also a local snowmobiling company and an ice skating rink, if you are up for more winter adventures!

                  The fall in Vermont is epic! The fall foliage colors are breath-taking on the mountains surrounding our home. The fly-fishing is outstanding on the Battenkill River especially with the Orvis Flagship Store & Fly-Fishing lessons located just 3 miles from the house. Vermont is also famous for our mountain biking and antiquing.

                  The summers in Vermont are magical! There are walking and hiking trails just out the front door. The famous Equinox Resort is just 3 miles from the house, boasting an outstanding golf course and a top of the line spa. Dorset, just 4 miles away, has wonderful summer theater. There is a local quarry for swimming and a glorious new swimming pool in town. For more entertainment, there is an alpine slide, mini golf, climbing walls, trampolines and other adventure games located just 10 minutes away at Bromley Mountain.

                  Manchester is an amazing place to vacation summer, fall and winter!
