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!

Perfect ski house
Our family had a wonderful weekend at this home! Is was clean and cozy. Great place to come back to after a day of winter sports! Our host was very accommodating! We will definitely be back again!
Great Family/Group Accommodations
The Isham house is just down the road from downtown Manchester. The home is beautifully appointed with vast communal space for groups to gather in their own areas or all together. The kitchen is very spacious and well stocked with anything one would need. Can not recommend highly enough and will certainly be staying there again.
Wonderful home! Plenty of space for our large group to spread out. House was immaculate upon arrival. Kitchen was perfectly stocked with everything we needed to prepare/cook a fantastic New Year’s Eve meal. Really enjoyed our stay in Manchester and would highly recommend this property!
Great stay in Vermont!
Our group had a great time staying here for a September wedding weekend in Manchester, VT! The place was spacious, clean, and had a great back yard. Close to the center of town and the wedding festivities. Would recommend.
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 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.
