With six colleagues, we organized a management team retreat in Manchester, Vermont and booked a home on Wilburton Inn property for our time there. The home was lovely with six bedrooms, gorgeous mountain views, a spacious living room, kitchen and dining space and of course a large but cozy outdoor porch. The setting was perfect for our purposes. We were delighted with Farm Night - local, homegrown cuisine, outdoor seating and live music. All in all it was an inspiring and memorable week. I would highly recommend the Wilburton for getaways and retreats. Melissa and her team at the Wilburton are warm, attentive and make you feel like a part of the family. The Inn is a hilltop gem and highly recommended!!
We stayed at the Green Mountain House for a weekend with family to celebrate my grandmother's life. Everyone was responsive and extremely helpful, and the house itself was the perfect place for us. We had exactly the right amount of space with 11 adults (3 couples and 5 by themselves) and had plenty of extra space when we had a few extra relatives over during the day for dinner and games. The rooms are all spacious and comfortable, and the common areas are extremely relaxing. The views are also spectacular and the grounds are a great place to walk around and enjoy nature. Would definitely recommend and hope we have an occasion to celebrate here again as well.
This is our 2nd winter stay in the oh so comfy Green Mountain House with our family of 5 adults and 2 children (ages 2 1/2 and 4 1/2). What did we do in our 5 days there? Horse-drawn sleigh ride, sledding, skiing at Bromley, shopping in Manchester, family dinners in local kid-friendly restaurants, family dinners at home prepared in the well-equipped kitchen, warm family evenings in front of the fireplace. We all look forward to another visit!
It was a perfect place for a small family gathering, very cozy with a manificent mountain view. There was something to do for all in the group; some went to Stratton to ski, others went to the beautiful Manchester town for some shopping. (within 15 to 20 minutes from the house) We even had a small hill for the small ones to go sledding. The house is well maintain, we had all we needed to make a nice family meal. All we needed to do is go food shopping at the supermarket, which was 2 miles to get supplies. Melissa and her family gave us a warm welcome.
Our family of 7 adults and 2 young children (1 1/2 and 3 1/2 years) stayed at the Green Mountain House for 5 nights during the 2016 mid-February freeze. The ample warmth inside - both from the heaters and from everyone's good spirits due to the comforts of this home - made this a special 1st time family vacation. The house has a lovely large living room that includes a working fireplace. There is a well-equipped kitchen that allowed easy preparation of meals enjoyed as a family around the large table in the dining room. The arrangement of bedrooms on the 2 floors of the house allowed for the children and their parents to occupy adjacent rooms on the main floor, with everyone else in the bedrooms upstairs. For the skiers among us, including a first time 3 1/2 year-old, the house is wonderfully located just minutes from Bromley and approximately 40 minutes from Stratton. Melissa and her family and staff at the Wilburton Inn deserve special mention for their warmth and attentiveness – be it for lending books and games to the children or for quickly responding to our occasional request. Our time at Green Mountain House was a 5-star family vacation that we all agreed should be repeated!
