My husband and I stayed here in mid-May in one of the suites, overlooking the pond and absolutely loved it. The room was clean, spacious, and nicely decorated. We sat on the deck, he fished in the pond, and we were able to walk to restaurants and shops in town as well. Pleasant and helpful staff too. We will definitely... More

We have stayed at the Palmer House several times and each time have found it to be a positive experience in every way. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are lovely, spacious and immaculate and the staff are always friendly and helpful.

From the welcoming staff to the beautiful grounds, the Palmer House was a real find. We stayed in a suite overlooking the trout pond, where my husband caught fish after fish! The suite was roomy, clean and comfortable, and the private deck was lovely. We enjoyed the outdoor pool and jacuzzi, and walked into town every day for delicious meals.... More

Hello and thank you for taking time for a review. I am delighted to hear of your husband's thrilling fishing experience! If I remember correctly, you might have checked out and then checked back in to do more fishing?? If that wasn't you, then it was a common story this year...fishing has been great!! But I'm glad that wasn't all... More

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for your extremely kind words...I had to admit I sighed when I saw my name! It felt very good to know I make you feel welcome. I agree, housekeeping and our own grounds guy work very hard to keep things polished and manicured and they certainly are good at what they do.. Thank you... More

Palmer House in Manchester, Vermont is a lovely Inn. The setting is perfect to rejuvenate, to read, relax, go swimming (indoor/outdoor pools), for a non golfer like me to hit balls on the nine-hole course with my twenty something daughter and walk around a beautiful New England town. Hiking surrounds the green area, as does outlet shopping for individuals seeking... More

We stayed at the Palmer House 7/17-7/19 for a long weekend. It was our first time visiting and we were not disappointed. We stayed in a room with a view of the courtyard and a King size bed which was very comfortable. The grounds were very well maintained and the room was very clean and spacious. The women in the...

Hello and thank you for sharing your thoughts from your first stay with us. It's good to hear you were not disappointed with your visit at the Palmer House. We all try to be welcoming and friendly and keep the grounds in top condition, so I was a little alarmed to hear we were slacking down by the trout pond.... More

This is a lovely hotel on the outside with beautiful grounds in a great location close to town. I just wish they had the gardener decorating the rooms. You enter the hotel through a profusion of pink petunias and pretty water fountain and then step into your dreary brown bedroom. In addition, the curtains let in too much light in... More

Hello and thank you for taking time for a review. I was very happy to hear the grounds pleased you but not at all happy to hear you were dissatisfied with your room. There are two sets of curtains in place: one more heavy to block out light and a more sheer set for light to come in but still... More

A group of us enjoyed the Palmer House while competing at the Vermont Summer Festival horse show. Our husbands golfed as well. Everything was exceptional - the rooms were amazingly clean and maintained - albeit dated but that's part of the charm. Pool was perfect and we also enjoyed the 9 hole par 3 course. The management were exceptionally helpful... More
