Manager info

Year Purchased: 1987

About: The Levis family has owned the Wilburton Inn & 8 Vermont vacation properties since 1987. We are a creative family that loves working together and welcoming travelers. Because we are a close family, we especially enjoy hosting multi-generational family reunions. Innkeeper Georgette Levis, was the sister of Lazard CEO Bruce Wasserstein and beloved Broadway playwright Wendy Wasserstein. Guests are always surprised to see the huge Sisters Rosensweig poster in the inn’s living room. Georgette's fnick-name was Gorgeous and she inspired Madeleine Kahn's Tony award winning role in Wendy’s Broadway hit. Patriarch Albert is a psychiatrist from Athens, Greece. He is the founder of Moral Science, the curator of The Museum of the Creative Process, and enjoys discussing conflict resolution, religion, and psychology with guests. The 4 Levis children include Tajlei: an Andover, Columbia, and NYU law school grad who lives in NYC and is writing the Broadway bound musical adaptation of the TV classic, Green Acres. Melissa: a Middlesex School, Brown University and NYU award-winning songwriter entertained thousands of NYC preschoolers with her band Moey’s Music Party. Melissa is delighted to be the new Maria Von Trapp and Vermont singing innkeeper. Oliver: a Cornell grad (where he met his wife Bonnie) Together they founded Earth Sky Time Community Farm & Bakery, a thriving organic farm 3 miles from the inn. Their breads are a delicious part of the Wilburton inn breakfast and their organic farm night dinners every Wednesday in summer are not to be missed! Max: a Columbia, Harvard Divinity School and soon to be Boston University PhD. Max is the family intellectual and could have been a wonderful rabbi but instead chose to be a scholar and innkeeper. Max collaborates with Albert to pioneer an on-line program of emotional education and self-knowledge. The 3rd Generation ranges from Theo, a 15 year-old NYC hispter to Oliver and Bonnie's upcoming baby this Spring!

Why Manchester Center, VT, USA:
This house is located on a spectacular, historic, 30 acre hilltop estate with phenomenal views of the green mountains. It is off the main road so guests can truly relax and truly get away from it all, yet it is centrally located in the heart of Manchester Village - just 1 mile to Hildene and the Equinox Hotel.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We can cater your events at the house through our inn. Visit our organic farm and bakery 3 miles from the house. Enjoy the Museum of the Creative Process sculpture trail that retraces myths and the matriarchs on our 30 acre estate. Though you have a fantastic kitchen in this rental home, you can relax on vacation and stroll over to the Wilburton Mansion for a delicious breakfast or dinner.
