My wife and I were traveling to Northern Vermont from Southeastern, Connecticut for a wedding and decided to leave a few days early. We also decided to take the back roads, namely Route 7, and just take our time. We weren't sure where we were going to end up at the end of the day so we made no reservations but when we had decided that we'd had enough of the car, we found ourselves in Manchester, Vermont where there are plenty of of options. My wife is a "first impression" kind of gal so when we came upon The Palmer House, I pretty much knew this was going to be where we'd be resting our heads. The large property is beautifully maintained and the gal at the desk, Amy, was one of the best in the business. A real professional that was committed to insuring our one night stand in Manchester was going to be a good one. If the truth be told, The Palmer House is much more than a house. It's almost a resort. From a par three golf course, croquet court, tennis court, fishing pond and more, it would have been better if we were going to be there longer to enjoy it all. Our room was big, quiet and more than adequate. It was also affordable as they could have charged us more considering the many recreational services that they offered. Oh, I should mention that if your traveling with children under 12, you should choose another option. I love my grand children but I was OK with that. Well done Amy and well done Palmer House. We'll be back.
