This property is a little piece of heaven on earth! Perfect in every way. Property, people, rooms.. The property is quiet and peaceful and beautifully manicured. I will return if I return to Manchester.

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

Great location and view of Mt Equinox, nice grounds... it's a golf course all amenities.. heated pools indoor and out, hot tubs indoor and out... lots of varied living spaces.. great views.. best place to see the local fireworks on 4th of July. A short walk to town continental breakfast included. Great Value!

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

We have been staying here each summer for many years. The rooms are spacious and clean and overlook the beautiful grounds. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The pool is a great spot to relax and there is pitch and putt golf and tennis and a hiking trail right on the property if you have time. The town is... More

As always Tina delighted our stay with a suggestion we face Mt. Equinox (3816') at the back of the curved rooms, so we did and each evening the most spectacular sunsets broke through the rising clouds that embraced the mountain and the ridgeline n and s of Manchester. Storms poured forth their warmth in crepuscular shadows, and the slopes of... More

Hello and thank you, really thank you, for that awesome review. For starters, you got my interest just at the sight of my name...but then, reading on, wow! I admit I had to dig my dictionary out more than once, ok 6 times, but it enhanced my reading oh-so-much! Imagery danced through my brain with each Wagnerian explosion of words!!... More

My husband and I have been staying at this lovely place for many years. We love the wonderful, big, clean rooms. The grounds are well maintained and the flowers are always spectacular. Within walking distance for dining and shopping. Special thanks to Tina, Martha and Carol this delightful staff is worth the visit. Hope to see you again soon.
