About the property

Skinner Cottage includes a 1-bedroom Carriage House and a 2-bedroom apartment (the third floor) of the historic (1802) Skinner House, home to Richard Skinner, the ninth Governor of Vermont. It has private entrances, off-street parking, and is very close to (just 2 doors from) the Equinox Hotel and Resort.

Our Carriage House is the second floor of the historic Carriage House. It too has a private entrance, off-street parking and is very close to the Equinox Hotel and Resort. The 800 square foot 1-bedroom suite-apartment (and pull-out couch in the family room) has a lovely view of gardens and the Equinox Mountain.

Our 1,200 square foot 2-bedroom suite-apartment (the 3rd floor of our Main House) has a view of lovely gardens and the Equinox Mountain, and historic Main Street.

Skinner House and the Equinox Hotel & Resort are on picturesque historic Main Street, Vermont's most quintessential village street scene, lined with spectacular maple trees and beautiful historic houses.

Guests can stroll along the 'million dollar marble walkway' of Manchester Main Street to shops, restaurants, and points of interests.

About The Owner

Beautifully restored by retired educators who once owned a local historic (1779) inn, home to Ethan and Ira Allen, famous Green Mountain Boys. Skinner House continues to meet and serve our guests in a beautiful four season resort community.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Manchester Village

We have a passion for the Manchester area and community. Manchester caters to a diverse community ... from ski rentals to wedding parties at the Equinox Hotel & Resort ... from all-year outlet shoppers to golfers, attending our major Summer horse event, the car and floral shows, amazing blazing foliage season, the long slow cool Summer, vibrant Spring and great Winter skiing and good times around the fire ... Manchester is a full 4 Season Resort community. Skinner House is very well received by our guests. Many have returned to stay with us each year. We hope you enjoy it.

What makes this condo unique

Skinner Cottage is very well located on Manchester's most beautiful Main street, is a historic home, well situated next to the Equinox Hotel & Resort with its outstanding facilities including world class spa and restaurants, minutes from even more excellent restaurants, cafes, taverns and shopping, only minutes walk to two golf courses and tennis facilities and only a short drive to skiing. Being in Southern Vermont, Manchester and Skinner Cottage are well situated to explore a wide range of all-season and seasonal Vermont vacation activities. Even a walk up and down the million dollar marble sidewalks of Main Street - on which Skinner Cottage is primely located - we think you will agree, will take you to another time!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Connie was an excellent tenant (for nearly 2 years) and like a teacher before her (over 2 years) and other months' long renters (3 in the last 8 years) have really enjoyed the privacy, location, security, safety, comfort and cleanliness of our Skinner Cottage 1-bedroom Carriage House.

Wonderful stay in Manchester

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the large two bedroom apartment on the top floor of this grand old home for two nights while attending a wedding at the Eqinox hotel nearby. The bedrooms are large and the beds very comfortable. The apartment was clean and well furnished. The location is very close tho the Equinox and a short walk to pubs and restaurants. Highly recommended.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in the Carriage House. Manchester has a number of nice restaurants and is very close to some fun summer activities. We took advantage of our proximity to Equinox for a nice drink. We also had a fun afternoon at Bromley Adventure Park.

Quiet, Clean, and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The carriage house is pretty much perfect! Set back from the road, it's very quiet and private. It's clean, well appointed with nice towels and linens, and the decor is Vermont-y without being overly quaint and falling victim to the bed-and-breakfast affliction of looking like an insane dollhouse. David is very nice, and easy to communicate with.

We loved the little carriage house & Manchester. The property was nice and Dave/ proprietor was excellent to work with and made sure we had everything we needed to make for a comfortable stay( we were there for 30 days). Craig the care taker is totally awesome!!! We hope to come again next year if available!
