  • Very nice, cosy home with road noise


    We spent an early November week staying at this home along Historic Route 7 just south of Manchester Village. The house is a an old Vermont farmhouse that has been nicely renovated--very nice and fully stocked and functional kitchen, comfortable beds. For those interested, the carpentry work throughout is excellent! The artwork on display throughout the house is a real treat; some the work of the owners (woodturner of reputation). We were fortunate to have gotten an unusual week of sunny warm weather for November so we got to enjoy sitting out on the stone patio with a view of the valley and mountains to the east for lunch and a few early evenings drinking wine; relaxing!

    It has been noted in other reviews, but I shall repeat. Getting in and out of the shower would be a challenge for shorter-legged folk; it has a big, high transition from the bathroom floor to the deep shower/Jaccuzi-type tub. Also, like some old Vermont farmhouses (I owned one just across the valley), it is situated close to the road; I would guess about 12 paces from the front door. "Old Route 7" as it is sometime referred to, has a lot of traffic traveling 40-50 mph with the most traffic in the early morning and evening.

  • Absolutely Perfect!


    Adorable VT farmhouse with huge backyard and view of the mountains. We had a wonderful time in Manchester (our second time staying in a VRBO in the area) and could not have been happier with our home-base. Lovely, eclectic interior that was just the right size for a family of 4 and our pug - who was very disappointed to leave. Our host was super responsive and we loved learning about the beautiful wood and glass art on display in the house. Wonderful property and visit to Manchester.

  • Charming, Rustic, Convenient to Manchester


    The home oozes New England charm. It's literally filled with handmade wooden crafts and pottery, and the house itself is unique and extremely charming. The owners live in the barn just behind the house and were very welcoming. We hadn't expected the house to be on such a busy road which is quite noisy at all hours. Beds were soft and not terribly comfortable. I might stay again, though if I could, would probably leave the dogs at home and pick a hotel in town.

    Hi Annette, we take guest feedback seriously and passed your comments on to the homeowners who would like to share the following:
    -The property is located on one of the main roads, and there are times during the day when there is busier traffic. We're sorry if any noise affected your stay.
    -While we try to accommodate all guests' comfort, we're sorry the mattresses didn't meet your preferences. The beds are new and of high quality.
    Thanks for taking the time to write your review!

  • Beautiful home with everything you need for a great stay in VT.


    My mother (87 years young) had wanted to get back to Manchester for a few years now. Her husband previously had a house there, but when he passed away she sold it. Needless to say Manchester held many beautiful memories for her. We searched and found this amazing home that would suit all of us, my mother, myself and my wife, and our dog (which we paid additional for) perfectly.

    Located a bit south of Hildene on 7A the house was close enough to enjoy all Manchester has to offer but also kept you far enough away from the downtown traffic. The house is beautifully kept with lots of tchotchke's throughout and truly amazing carved wood pieces which we believe were made by the owner. We wished they had prices on them because we certainly would have considered buying some.

    The house was very clean throughout. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need to cook with (pots, pans, propane stove/oven and microwave) and also on the ground floor was a nice dining room and table, a connected living room with couch and two comfortable chars, a smart TV with cable and a half bathroom. There is also wifi throughout the house for us to use if we wanted.

    The second floor had two very well sized bedrooms and a full bath.

    Overall the home was the perfect fit for us and everything we needed and we loved staying there. That being said there are a few things to be aware of. The upstairs bath has this amazing sunken jacuzzi tub and shower. Fantastic as that is, it can be a little tricky to get in and out of. If there were one or two steps on the outside of the tub and a grab bar on the inside it would make things much easier. While there are many of the LED nightlights throughout the house, it would help to have a brighter one on the second floor landing since there is no additional light there and it was very dark if we had to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. We just kept the bathroom light on to compensate. The last two items were related to the bedroom my wife and I stayed in, which was in the front of the house. It is closest to the road and so if you are a light sleeper you might get woken up by some of the cars as the drive by and for me the bed was too soft. That is more a personal preference and my wife had no problem with it.

    In the end this is still a wonderful place to stay and we will certainly look to book it again the next time we come up to Manchester!

  • Great spot in Manchester area


    The house is historic, located on a wonderful piece of property with great views of the Green Mountains, with friendly hosts living and working next door in their own remodeled barn. They were very responsive to every need, but pretty much left us alone. The view out the back and from the patio is like a Maxfield Parrish painting -- the red barn, the blossoming trees, the flowers and lawns, the soaring hills behind. House is well equipped. And it is only a short ride to town, with lots of shops and restaurants.It and a good supermarket. House has two bedrooms with queen beds, so we had separate bedrooms and kept in shape climbing the stairs while getting plenty of rest.
