About Melissa Levis

The Levis family has owned the Wilburton Inn since 1987. We are a creative family that loves working together and welcoming travelers to discover our magical estate. Because we are a close family, we especially love welcoming multi generational family reunions.

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 a pioneer in Conflict Resolution and the integration of the humanities and the sciences.

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 family nick-name was Gorgeous and she inspired Madeleine Kahn's Tony award winning role in the Broadway hit.

The 4 Levis children include

Tajlei: an Andover, Columbia, and NYU law school grad who lives on the Upper West Side of NYC and is writing the Broadway bound musical adaptation of the TV show, Green Acres.

Melissa: a Middlesex School, Brown University and NYU award-winning songwriter who 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) and together founded Earth Sky Time Community Farm and Bakery, a thriving organic farm based from our childhood home, 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 intellectual of the bunch 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 NY

Perfect for a large family visiting Manchester for a wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

We’re a family of seven visiting Manchester for a wedding, and preferred being together in a house to a series of hotel rooms. This was perfect. Big enough to allow privacy but plenty of space for togetherness too. We were mostly out for wedding functions or outlet shopping or restaurants, so we did not use many of the house’s amenities, but there were plenty if you did need them; screened porches, nice back outdoor area, big table, full kitchen. Everyone was lovely and helpful and I’d definitely book this again.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is a sweet little house very conveniently located near central Manchester--you can walk to the outlets! My husband had a great time biking in the mountains while I shopped. There's a kitchen on the property, but you can also pay extra for the amazing breakfast at the Wilburton, which is fantastic.

Awesome stay right in the middle of Manchester!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay at the Manchester Village House. Plenty of room for everyone. Big bedrooms, flat screen TVs, living room, dining room, kitchen, this place has it all! It worked really well with our whole family. There was a beautiful back yard which my son and dog ran around the entire weekend. We just sat on the porch and upstairs deck in complete privacy. We would've grilled and cooked, but Manchester has some really nice restaurants which are literally a 5 minute drive away. That's another great perk of this house. You are right in the middle of everything Manchester has to offer. Restaurants, Equinox Pond, the grocery store, shops, etc.

The other big advantage to this staying at this house is the connection to the super fabulous Wilburton Inn. The hospitality was top notch as always and they were quick to help us with anything we needed. We will most certainly be back to Manchester and would stay at the Manchester Village House.

Very Comfortable House, Scenic Views, Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Green Mountain House on the Wilburton Inn property for a wedding weekend and were very pleased with our stay. The Green Mountain House was extremely comfortable, had plenty of bedrooms and space for 10 people to co-exist, and a lovely deck which offered both a grille and a scenic view down a mountain valley. The property itself is large, green, and very interesting, as it is spotted with many local art installations, a pool, a badminton net, and a basketball court. The Inn itself is only a 4 minute drive from Manchester Village, and an 8 minute drive from Manchester Center. Very convenient.

Our hosts were also very gracious and accomodating. They set us up with perfect tables with a view for breakfasts (very tasty, I might add), and helped us find AUX cords for speakers, and helped me find this lodging after I missed out on another one of their rental units by just minutes on the VRBO site.

Thanks to Melissa and the crew there for making our weekend excellent!
