We love to stay at the Weathervane Motel. This is our favorite place to stay when we are in the Manchester, Vermont area. The owners invite you into their home for a lovely continental breakfast including some homemade baked goods. They are always more than accomodating, most pleasant and always courteous. The rooms are large, very clean and ours included a refrigerator, (something I think is important when traveling.) We've stayed at many motels and this one is the best by far, not to mention that it's very quiet there. We are looking forward to visiting there again next year and I hope you will visit too.

The first time my boyfriend and I found the Weathervane Motel was last May, 2005. We decided to stay here among many other options. The owners are the friendliest people, providing everything you could want and more. The rooms are very comfortable and homey. We just got back from our second time staying at the Weathervane Motel, and decided to make it an annual thing.

I'm not one for staying in motels but I've found the exception to that rule: the Weathervane Motel in Manchester, Vermont. Surrounded by the Green and Taconic Mountains, the picturesque setting of the Weathervane reminded me of the beauty of Aspen. The room was large and airy and the furniture, from the kingsized bed to the writing desk, made my wife and I feel like we were at home. Sitting out by the pool on a hot summer's day and viewing the mountains in the distance, was like relaxing in paradise. Unlike some of the overpriced inns and hotels in Manchester, the cost at the Weathervane was less than $100 per day. Talk about value for your dollar! And by the way, that included a fantastic continental breakfast. In the afternoons we shopped in the village's many outlets and our only headache was in choosing from one of the many restaurant in town - the choices seemed endless. The proprietors of the Weathervane were the best part of our stay. Murveta and Branco Jovicic, two of the friendliest people you will ever meet, treated us like royalty.They couldn't have been nicer or more willing to meet to our every need to be comfortable. They offered reliable advice on places to see and, quite frankly, tourist traps to avoid. More than happy to get our business, they were honored by it and they made us feel special. For price, quality accomodations and the friendly
atmosphere that one associates with the rural beauty of Vermont, I highly recommend this wonderful gem in Manchester: the Weathervane Motel.

My wife & I have just returned to Connecticut after a short vacation to Manchester with The Weathervane as our headquarters.
We’ve been staying at the Weathervane for many years, but it was the recent purchase of the motel by Murveta and Branco Jovicic that prompted us to write this review. The improvements made during their 2 years of ownership coupled with their determination to make their establishment “The Best” makes them deserving of any praise we can heap on them.
The Weathervane is ideally situated on Route 7A just a few minutes drive from the beautiful center of Manchester (and the shopping). The rooms are set well back from the highway with immaculately groomed front and back lawns. The mountains are in full view to the East and the West. Behind the rooms is a back yard the size of a football field and it features a heated swimming pool.
Oversized rooms are featured, and the room rates are competively priced. A Living Room has been opened for the exclusive use of the guests. Here Murveta serves a continental breakfast unbelievably priced at $2.
To view photos and a more detailed description of The Weathervane, I would suggest a visit to their website “----”.
