The main Orvis headquarters and retail store are located in Manchester, VT. Immediately behind the store is their rod making facility, where all of their high end fly fishing rods are made - mostly by hand. Tours of this facility are offered Monday - Friday, and on this particular Friday, we were the only ones signed up for the tour.... More

I was expecting something special as this is the flagship store next to headquaters. The store is average, staff friendly, prices expensive, did have a small fish tank, plenty of parking. The Outlet Store next door is not worth a stop, carries almost no fishing items which seems to be Orvis current trend toward clothing and not fly fishing. Selection... More

This brand new building looks great from the parking lot, but once inside, feels like any other outdoor store in any other strip mall in America. Advertised as the flagship store, I expected more history and artifacts instead of the same old clothes found elsewhere. It just lacks the wow factor - not unique in any sense. The trout pond...

I have wanted to visit the Vermont Orvis flagship store just about forever, and I finally got here. What a beautiful property. They have a magnificent store, lots of rolling green lawns, fly fishing and trout ponds where you can take a fly fishing lesson or just enjoy the scenery, little spaces where benches and flowers make for a restful...

We spent the weekend in Manchester and naturally stopped by Orvis to buy a leather collar for our chocolate Lab "Brooklyn". We ended up buying quite few things (something for everyone). You've got to love a store on picturesque grounds with it's own fly fishing pond, bridge and that's so very dog friendly. Brooklyn was treated like a celebrity by... More

Was in the area and wanted to visit Orvis. I was first brought there years ago by my Father. When I pulled up to Orvis all I could say was WOW! This is new. What a fantastic shopping site for everyone in the family. The girls loved the fish feeding...so did I. What majestic and gorgeous fish. We spent a... More

We have visited the outlet in Essex and every time we are greeted with dog treats and a very enthusiastic staff. They encourage your pup to join you in the dressing room and have a large selection of dog items to choose from (pricey, but same caliber as LL Bean).

We went to the Orvis flagship store today in Burlington, VT and what a beautiful store. Just a feast for the eyes, laid out beautifully and a fabulous array of clothing, fishing tacle and home goods. Comfy chairs by the Fire, friendly well-behaved dogs and incredibly helpful sales staff. Sarah, one of the sales associates, was especially helpful. The free... More

Every year we visit Manchester for the foliage, we go to Orvis, sometimes we will shop there twice in one week. There are very few bargains there, but we don't go there looking only for bargains. Orvis offers quality clothing. We only buy if we see something that simply stands out as practical and well made. In spite of prices,... More

Stopped at the flagship Orvis Store just to browse because I didn't really need more equipment. Would have liked to do the tour of the fly rod factory but didn't get there in time. Store had lots of fly fishing equipment and outdoor gear, most of which is upscale and pricey. It is located near the Battenkill River. The best... More
