We recently did a nine day trip around southern Vermont and the Berkshires. We decided to book Manchester View because of the pictures on their website of the balcony. It didn't disappoint! The room was large and nicely furnished, but the balcony was the place to be. The balcony is large with great furniture.surrounded by stunning mountain views. It was the perfect place to relax.
I was a little disappointed however, when the front desk couldn't recommend a nearby place for a picnic. One of the reasons we go to Vermont from Florida is the wonderful hiking opportunities, and we usually pack a lunch and enjoy a picnic, Also, I had to ask for decaf coffee in the Keurig coffee maker. The friendly housekeeper on our last day finally provided this for us. We also wish they had their breakfast room open. Even though we were there on Memorial Day weekend, the breakfast room wasn't open. We would have preferred to pay a small fee for a continental breakfast rather then driving a few miles away to get breakfast.
This is a wonderful place to stay, very clean with beautiful views, but unless you are really into shopping in the Manchester area, we prefer the recreational opportunities around Stowe. The resort where we stay in Stowe welcomes you with lobby coffee all day, fresh apples and afternoon cookies. Manchester View was a little smaller than that resort, but I was expecting the same kind of Vermont hospitality. Think we will keep going back to Stowe whenever we visit Vermont.
