About Lilli Weisz
My husband, Jed, and I live in Chicago, IL. I am a digital organizer, and Jed is an independent school administrator. We love to hike in Vermont with our kids and standard poodle, Rufus, and look for out of the way swimmin' holes. Jed's family has owned the Isham house since 1991, when it was a run-down working barn. Jed's father Bernie could see the building's 'good bones' and renovated it to it's current beauty. We take a tremendous amount of pride and joy in offering it to other families to enjoy.
Lilli Weisz purchased this Barn in 1991
Why Lilli Weisz chose Manchester Center
We converted the Isham House into a home because the area offered us a rare mix of outdoor activities, culture, history, and outlet shopping.
What makes this Barn unique
You can walk to the trails of Mt. Equinox from the front door. We are on the main road and are only a 5 minute drive from town. The house is large enough to sleep 14 people but cozy enough for a perfect Vermont weekend getaway!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
What a great place. Family friendly, well stocked with plenty of room for everyone to spread out. Great location, close to town and ski area. Lilly was very response to our questions and returned the security deposit within the week. Overall, cant more highly recommend.
The house was very clean and much more spacious than it looked in pictures. We were a big group and everyone had space to sleep. The kitchen was great for cooking and fully stocked with a big island for people to hang out. Supermarket and shops are about 10 minute drive away. Overall we had a great experience!
Perfect spot for a family gathering, close to everything.
Very nice property. Spacious and clean. We had a nice large family gathering and this property accommodated us all well. We will return again!!
It was perfect! Just what we wanted
The spacious house was very comfortable and had all that we needed for our xtended family. Certainly provided memories that we will cherish. The host/hostess were there by email for us with any questions and supportive throughout our stay. Thanks so much.
Another Great Weekend at the Edward Isham house
Lilli is such a great host and the house is always so warm and cozy. Plenty of space to spread out but also spaces to gather as a group. Will always keep this in mind when booking our VT trips.
Very Warm and Comfortable Home!
Our host Lilli has a lovely home that is very inviting. It has plenty of space for two families and is well stocked in every way. The kitchen has almost everything you might need to whip up a great meal. This was our third stay in the home and have another visit already planned. Will definitely stay there again in the future. Thanks to Lilli for being such a great and responsive host! Cheers!
The Historic Edward S. Isham Carriage House sits on Historic Route 7A in the town of Manchester. Because of its rural location, it is sometimes difficult to find the Isham House on GPS or Google maps. To see its exact location, Google 'Ormsby Hill Inn' in Manchester. The Isham House is directly adjacent to the inn (approximately 150 yards to the north).
Other Activities: Canoe and kayaking, Outlet shopping
Golf: There are two remarkable golf courses near the Isham House. Gleneagles, owned by the Equinox Resort, is a links style course that is beautifully maintained. Stratton Mountain also boasts a course that has hosted LPGA events in recent years.
Ski: The Isham House is smack dab in the middle of ski country. Stratton Mountain -- known for its deluxe facilities, gondola to a 4500 foot summit, and sun bowl -- is a 20 minute drive away. Bromley, a resort renowned for the quality of its ski instruction and challenging terrain, is less than 15 minutes from the house. Magic Mountain and Okemo are also options nearby.
Hildene -- adjacent to the Isham House -- offers groomed trails for cross country skiing. Having undergone an extensive renovation on the last few years, Hildene is an excellent destination for those who like to keep their skis on flat ground.
