Planned a quick, last minute, one night ski trip with my girlfriend and came across the Weathervane Motel online. Appeared to have the most reasonable price with included amenities. I notified the owner that I would be arriving at 11pm on NYE and he had no problem with that. Arrived around 11pm to our room that already had the lights... More

After planning a last minute trip to Stratton Mountain, my boyfriend and I were seeking a place to stay that was convenient, affordable and clean. The Weathervane Motel fulfilled all of those attributions and then some. After traveling for hours on Christmas Eve, we were expecting a late arrival. The owner was sure to open the and prepare the room... More

My grandmother taught me that if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all. Room was clean when we got there but we did not get room service after checking in. My family has had a trip to this area for several years and our usual spot was under renovation so we tried the Weathervane - Never Again.

We visited Manchester Vermont recently and stayed at the Weathervane. This motel was convenient to shopping and other attractions. Though clean, it was very much in need of repair. The owner was pleasant and helpful. A bright spot was the free continental breakfast. The pastries and coffee were fresh and inviting. We didn't try the pool as it was a... More

We had a very pleasant experience while at the Weathervane. I wasn't sure what to expect and was nicely surprised. Our deluxe room was as stated - great size, pretty clean and comfortable. Only negatives for improvement might be adding a box of tissues for guests in the bathroom and an in-room phone to get in touch with front desk/owners... More

The owner has very bad memory and even worse attitude when a disagreement arises. On 8/15/2014 we tried to book a room for a night in October through the online inquiry form (I stupidly entered my credit card number as required by the form). We called after submitting the form, and the owner told us the reservation is accepted. The... More

The owners seem nice and welcoming, but that’s probably it. The room was pretty outdated, everything looked really old in the room I stayed in. The bed was flimsy, so when we moved, the headboard would bang on the wall; that was kind of embarrassing, and I felt bad for the next-door guests. And the blanket and quilt looked kind... More

The Weathervane exceeded my expectations. Great location, well lit wonderful property, (8 acres) gently warn, with generously spacious rooms. Front door and back door access, features great air flow and gorgeous mountain view. Owners are super friendly and Charlie the pup is the cutest ever. I will surely return, looking forward to my next visit.

The Weathervane was better than I thought. I have driven by many times when visiting the area. The property looks nice but the exterior of the hotel looks a bit dated...But I read some reviews on here and decided to try. It turned out to be very good. The owner was very nice. She was very easy to talk to... More

We stayed here last year when another hotel we usually stay at was not available. It was very comfortable although somewhat dated. The property is in a beautiful spot. There is much to do in the surrounding area, whatever the season.
