The Destination
Equal parts New England elegance and Green Mountain tranquility, Manchester Village has been charming visitors since the 19th century. Stately old homes and antique shops grace the village's lovely streets, where women with parasols and men in stovepipe hats once whiled away lazy afternoons on wide verandas or walking along downtown's marble sidewalks. In fact, Honest Abe's wife and son spent their summers in Manchester, leading Robert to later build his own Lincoln family estate, Hildene, in the town. Those looking to swap history for hijinks can hike, bike, or drive up nearby Mount Equinox before exploring the Battenkill River by canoe. And, if finding a fantastic deal strikes your interest, excellent outlet shopping is just minutes away.

The Digs
The largest private estate in Manchester Village, the historic Wilburton Inn occupies 20 hilltop acres with stunning views of the Battenkill Valley and surrounding mountains. Built in 1902, the mansion maintains a sense of grace with its spacious rooms and terraces. Guests can explore the estate's grounds, which include tennis courts, a swimming pool, extensive gardens, and a unique contemporary sculpture collection. Accommodations are styled in turn-of-the-century décor, with four-poster beds, oriental carpets, fireplaces, and private bathrooms, as well as modern amenities like flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi, and air-conditioning. When you're ready to indulge in a delicious meal, the inn's mahogany-beamed dining room features dishes crafted with artisanal whole-grain breads and seasonal produce from the property's family-run organic farm.

  • "The dining room is an elegant affair, with a menu to match—entrées might include poached Maine lobster with gnocchi or a roasted antelope chop with bordelaise sauce."
