About Val and Bill
Here we are hanging out at the Spiral Press Cafe in Manchester Village! We grew up in Los Angeles and spend part of our time in La Jolla, CA. We love the nature, the beauty, the seasons and the fun activities that Manchester, Vermont has to offer, along with the kind, friendly, sincere people--and of course the water (which we have little of out West)!
Val and Bill purchased this House in 2015
Why Val and Bill chose Manchester Center
When visiting Vermont and deciding where we wanted to spend part of our time and eventual retirement, we absolutely fell in love with this property! It is private, beautiful, and blanketed with beautiful lawns and a variety of colorful, lush trees and flowers. On our first morning here as new owners, we opened the master bedroom window shade and spotted a mother deer and two of her young crossing our lawn and drinking from and wading in our swimming pond! It was amazing! We also saw a turtle (be careful--they snap), some chipmunks and a variety of colorful birds! For those who love looking at birds (and maybe even sketching them), it is wonderful to see such a variety! On our first walk around the pond, we located a green apple tree on the property--our own green apples!
What makes this House unique
The swimming pond is tranquil and beautiful and inviting to wildlife. As you can see from the photos, along with the lush trees, colorful flowers and manicured lawn, the pond creates a stunning view from the living room, office, and master suite, all which look out its way. And though it is not as colorful in the winter, there is a view of snow-covered mountains to take its place while the color hides until Spring. Enjoy!

Great place for family get together!
We rented the place for our family Thanksgiving. Everyone enjoyed the stay. Place was clean and exactly as described in the listing. Owners were really responsive to any questions we had. Only issue was that sound transferred very easily from great room to master bedroom. Would definitely stay there again!
Great Peace and Quiet with sublime Nature at hand.
Valerie Tanney (and partner Bill) were extremely caring hosts (even from almost 3,000
miles away at their other home!). We spoke several times and communicated every day via Text or e-mail. They even took the foresight to have 2 packages sent for supportive bed sheets and another small bathroom necessity via UPS (or another shipper?)
The home was in mint condition and the myriads of windows were spotlessly clean, as was everything else...The outdoor area (yard, trees, plants etc had all been meticulously maintained)
On a hundred-point-scale...my visitors and I would rate this a 99.9 point rating.
(And only because "perfection" cant really exist!)

Our annual Fall retreat
Incredibly well maintained, spacious, and central to downtown Manchester. Owners are a pleasure!!
This house was amazing and while the pictures look spectacular, they simply do not do it justice! As soon as we arrived at the house everyone was coming up with excuses for reasons we would need to come back. The property is at the end of a dead end in a quaint neighborhood with beautiful views. The yard and house itself are sprawling and everything was comfortable! I could say a million nice things about the house, but I also wanted to take a minute to mention the owners. Val and Bill were amazing! They thought of everything. They were sweet, detailed, and helpful! I can’t thank them enough for being so thorough and so kind. I would highly recommend this house for quick jaunts to Manchester Center and easy rides to Stratton. We cannot wait to come back!
