Recent Manchester Center reviews

  • Great Escape Vacation Home!

    "We rented this house over the long Columbus Day weekend and could not have been happier. It was everything that we were looking for. Easy access to Manchester, beautiful foliage everywhere (right off the deck), easy access to trail heads for hiking (right in the back yard), fully functional kitchen and grill so we could make great meals at the end of a long day. The house is SO perfectly VT with it's great moose and bears on the walls, and beautiful wood stove that heated up the house so nicely, and provided a romantic setting to just relax at night with some movies and wine. The electronics (TV, sound, music) were all so easy to use with the instructions provided. It is SO quiet and peaceful here, we can't wait to go back. I have to also comment on the owners, who were so very helpful with suggestions for hikes, dinners, back road drives and local attractions. The house was warm when we arrived late at night which was great. I left a shoe at the house and they were kind enough to return it to me on their next visit up there, which was much appreciated. They were a pleasure to deal with. Like I said- we can't wait to go back and are trying to find some time on the calendar to head back when there's some snow on the ground."

  • Turn-Key Cottage

    "Norma has provided a pleasant, turn-key cottage. Norma is a great source of information for whatever your needs may be as you spend time in Vermont. The cottage is EXTREMELY well equipped, the beds are wonderful and the water is nice and hot! It is much nicer than staying in a motel; cozy and comfortable, but with ample space suitcases, skis, etc. It would be perfect for a family, or a couple."

  • Very nice place in beautiful Manchester

    "We stayed here during peak foliage season. The house is very nice and the hosts were very communicative and helpful. The house was roomy, with lots of space to really stretch out and enjoy a weekend away from NYC. The location is great and walking distance to shops and restaurant. We would definitely return!"
