About Ariane Tallman
This house was originally purchased to be part of the inventory for a high end vacation home club. It was furnished, outfitted, and detailed with this purpose in mind. The business was ultimately sold, but we retained the property. Our family has enjoyed many gatherings at this wonderful home, as have numerous guests. We welcome you to also enjoy a special experience in a home away from home.
Ariane Tallman purchased this House in 2003
Why Ariane Tallman chose Manchester Village
We sought a house in a location that had the feel of being among the mountains and meadows of Vermont, but not isolated. We are minutes away from everything, great restaurants, shopping, art galleries, antiquing, spas, and all the sports associated with the Vermont seasons.

This was our second trip to this property, and once again, we absolutely loved it! The layout and space was perfect for a trip with three families, including two preschoolers. The kids loved all the toys that were thoughtfully made available in the study/playroom, and the adults had lovely cozy nights by the fire, playing board games and reading. The beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen was well-stocked. And, of course, the view is gorgeous. We also enjoyed the delicious bottle of prosecco the hosts thoughtfully left for us! Overall, a perfect long weekend - we can't wait to come back!
It was a pleasure to have you return to River Road. And I'm so pleased the second time did not disappoint. I have been told over and over again our home is a wonderful space for family and friends to gather. We look forward to welcoming you again. Thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review.
This was our third time renting this house in Manchester, VT. We love the house - it is spacious, with charming (usable!) nooks and crannies. One "extra" room became our game room; another the music room; and another was our lounge. And these are just the "spare" rooms! This was our first winter visit and it was perfect -- a wood burning stove, hiking on adjacent trails, family dinners in the dining room. If you can imagine what a quintessential Vermont experience is, this is it. We have found the owners and house manager always approachable and helpful. If you rent this house, we hope you love it as much as we do!
Wonderful having you visit again. I am thrilled you love our home in all seasons, it is a special place. You are welcome anytime.
What a wonderful house! On top of being a beautiful, comfortable house, it was unbelievably clean and well appointed for 4 couples. Beds are comfortable--everyone remarked in this--and the view of the mountain behind the house is gorgeous. We also enjoyed the garden and the outdoor living room! A memorable stay!
Wow, and I didn't even get the time to ask for a review. Come back anytime!
Wonderful 2nd stay!
This was my family's second stay here and we had a wonderful time! The location is perfect, just down the road from town, and the view from the back of the house is idyllic- beautiful mountains everywhere! Our three small boys and our dog love romping in the backyard together. We love going to Vermont each fall and this house makes the trip even better- it's a beautiful property, well maintained, and Ariane could not be more pleasant or accommodating. We will be back!
So great to have you and your family back again. You are on your way to joining several families who make a visit to our home an annual gathering. We look forward to welcoming you back to River Road. Thank you for your kind words.
The home and property were amazing! Very clean and comfortable. Lots of room for our group of eight.
We thoroughly enjoyed this home and definitely would book it again. There was so much room for our family to “spread out”. The bedrooms were gorgeous and the beds were very comfortable. The outdoor area was nice...pretty flowers growing along the back of the house and a beautiful view to enjoy. Thank you for supplying firewood. We even had a cozy bonfire one night. The house has an historic feel and look to it to go along with the area it is located in, but it is a newer home where everything is in good working order. The bathrooms were beautiful as well! They had some unique architectural features and were very clean. The property owners have thought of everything with this rental. They supplied everything we needed to make it a wonderful stay. We didn’t have any babies with us, but they have many of the things you need if you’re traveling with a young family (crib, high chair, etc.). Veronica, our hostess, greeted us on our first day there and she couldn’t have been more welcoming! She answered our questions, made sure we knew where everything was, and she even made some recommendations for things to do in the area. Before leaving, our family tried to think if there were any recommendations we could give the property owners, but we couldn’t come up with even one suggestion. This home, the owners and Veronica the hostess, met and exceeded all of our expectations. I would (and hope to) rent this beautiful home again without hesitation. Anyone who stays here will fall in love with this home!
WOW! How can I possibly follow up this review with other than a very big thank you for your high praise of our efforts to make our guests as welcome as possible. THANK YOU Lezlee
Fantastic Property - Charming, lovely, special
This was our second stay at this charming Manchester home. We love this house and property! It is an special oasis in a wonderful town in a wonderful state. We particularly enjoy the garden, outdoor seating and the delightful screened in porch. Our two Portuguese Water Dogs enjoyed walking in the yard and hanging out in the sunshine. Should our travels take us back to Manchester, we would choose this house for the third time without hesitation!
It is always rewarding to welcome back return guests, it means we are doing something right in providing a home away from home. Thank you Jesse for taking the time to write this excellent review, and we look forward to hearing from you yet again.
