The Destination
At once whimsical and traditional, Manchester Village, Vermont, is a four-season resort that has charmed visitors since the 19th century. Stately old homes, antique shops, and cozy taprooms are sprinkled along the village's elegant streets, where women with parasols and men in stovepipe hats once whiled away lazy afternoons. In fact, Robert Todd Lincoln vacationed here on the spectacular Hildene Estate, today home to a museum and cross-country ski trails. Those looking to swap history for hijinks can lace up their skates on the town's ice rink or hit the slopes at nearby Bromley or Stratton Mountain Ski Resorts. 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 30 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 30 acres, often blanketed with sparkling snow in winter, then warm up with a hot chocolate or cocktail by a crackling fire. 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 wake, the inn serves a bountiful country breakfast with artisanal whole-grain breads and seasonal produce from the property's family-run organic farm.

  • "Stepping into this hilltop 1902 Tudor-style mansion, you might think you've walked into a lavish film set. There's a palpable cinematic quality in the richly paneled bedrooms and the common rooms containing part of the owners' vast art collection."
