“Cozy family friends affordable cabins”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2011

My husband and I stayed in April 2011 with our 2 year old daughter. The cabin was adorable with all accommodations: cable tv, tub and shower, frig and microwave, outdoor gathering spots and trails to get our child to nap! A clean cozy place it is walking distance to the outlets and restaurants. The individual cabins are great because my two year old's loud singing could not be heard outside.

The separate private cabins were great. The owners are very friendly and love pets. The location is very close to restaurants, coffee shops, stores and skiing. Casablanca is a good, pet-friendly find at a great value.

Cute cabins, friendly owners. They let us bring our dog, which was great. Gave us directions and ideas on where to go and what to do.

Stayed here for a 4 day trip while snowboarding over at Stratton which was only a 20-25 min drive away from here in Manchester Center.

Pros
- Below $100 a night is a great find here in ski country
- Good location in Manchester Center with many eateries and shopping locale nearby
- Rooms are nicely decorated for each "theme" that each cottage has
- Service by the staff is great
- Fridge and microwave was great for us since we were doing some of our own cooking there

Cons
- Cabins are poorly insulated. In the winter when you have the heat on and set the thermostat to a certain temp (we had ours set to 70ish) the heater would heat to that temp...then turn off. 5-8 min later it would come on again and it is pretty loud. Fortunately my fiancee and I are pretty heavy sleepers but nonetheless it annoyed us when we weren't sleeping. Also while we happened to be sitting down by the table near the heater, you'd always smell gasoline everytime the heater turned on...which I guess is normal for a gasoline heater but at the rate it keeps turning on and off I have to wonder if healthwise it was so good for us during the night.
- First night we were there when we pulled back the bedspreads, there was white hair and brown hair all in between the neatly made bedspreads and sheets and pillows. It was already late at night so we decided to deal with it and wipe away as much of it as we could. We only did this because the bed sheets actually did smell fresh like it came out of the washer and dryer so we figured the hair could've been picked up and stuck to all the bedsheets from the dryer. But still it was disgusting, especially waking up to hair thats not yours stuck on you waking up the next morning. We did write housekeeping a note before we left for the day and they did replace all our bed linens and apologized for the mishap saying its never happened before so I was happy with the service response. Nevertheless I don't see how you could miss white and brown hairs that were pretty visibile on the blue comforter.
- The bathroom could use some remodeling...could tell on the floor corners some mildew occurring and cracking moldings.

Other than that I'd recommend this as a cheap place to stay...relatively cozy as long as you're not spending a lot of time here.

Casablanca is close to a few ski areas so there choices of where to go...when not on the slopes, Manchester offers great shopping and dining- especially incredible breakfast places!! The individual cottages at the Casablanca are cozy, warm and clean- even the pet friendly rooms. I was quite comfortable and will return again!

We found this place just on the way in Manchester center. They are really nice small individual cabins just like the doll house! The staff is very friendly, kind and helpful. The room itself is so nice and comfortable. We have everything we needed for one night. The decoration is also very lovely! We love this place and for sure we will visit them again!!!

This is a wonderful location to stay in Vermont! The owners, Linda and Diane, are such fabulous ladies and treated us so well. The cottages are adorable and so quiet. I would highly recommend this location to everyone who wants a "get away". Linda and Diane filled our stocking outside with doggie treats and whoopie pies!! My favorite!! Great location to skiing, hiking, showshoeing and many other outside activities. A perfect place for a family reunion!! The cottage was extremely clean and cozy. The town of Manchester is beautiful and there are so many shops! Hope to go back there soon! Thank you for being a part of our wonderful Christmas!
