About Val and Bill
Here we are hanging out at the Spiral Press Cafe in Manchester Village! We grew up in Los Angeles and spend part of our time in La Jolla, CA. We love the nature, the beauty, the seasons and the fun activities that Manchester, Vermont has to offer, along with the kind, friendly, sincere people--and of course the water (which we have little of out West)!
Val and Bill purchased this House in 2015
Why Val and Bill chose Manchester Center
When visiting Vermont and deciding where we wanted to spend part of our time and eventual retirement, we absolutely fell in love with this property! It is private, beautiful, and blanketed with beautiful lawns and a variety of colorful, lush trees and flowers. On our first morning here as new owners, we opened the master bedroom window shade and spotted a mother deer and two of her young crossing our lawn and drinking from and wading in our swimming pond! It was amazing! We also saw a turtle (be careful--they snap), some chipmunks and a variety of colorful birds! For those who love looking at birds (and maybe even sketching them), it is wonderful to see such a variety! On our first walk around the pond, we located a green apple tree on the property--our own green apples!
What makes this House unique
The swimming pond is tranquil and beautiful and inviting to wildlife. As you can see from the photos, along with the lush trees, colorful flowers and manicured lawn, the pond creates a stunning view from the living room, office, and master suite, all which look out its way. And though it is not as colorful in the winter, there is a view of snow-covered mountains to take its place while the color hides until Spring. Enjoy!

Home away from home
Our family has been fortunate enough to stay here for a week in Fall for the past 5 years. Val and Bill have always taken the time to cater to our every need, truly beyond expectation. The house is perfectly situated on a private road so close to the center of Manchester. Our children love the pond in the back, the large backyard, and the beauty of the Vermont outdoors. We have already booked our stay for 2020 and look forward to staying at our home away from home every year.
Weekend retreat with friends
House exceeded our expectations- even more room than the photos suggested - beautiful setting had a great time!
Once again this house proves to be AMAZING!
Perfect in the summer and EVEN BETTER in the winter, this well-appointed home was a great long weekend getaway spot with easy access to skiing and downtown restaurants/shops. The owners were very responsive and super accommodating; we will be back for sure!
We stayed here over a long weekend for skiing. This location was convenient to both Bromley and Stratton. The house was spacious and beautiful, had everything we needed.
If possible, the home is actually prettier in person than it was in pictures. Everything is top quality from the beautiful kitchen to the family rooms and all the bedrooms. The master bedroom suite is a dream and the bathrooms and showers are well done. When we arrived, our kids said "you guys rented a mansion". We also were able to bring the dogs that made it a complete family trip. After all, a house is not a home without a dog! The home is close to Mancester and close enough to ski venues. We look forward to future trips..
We had a wonderful time
The owner was extremely responsive, and prepared us with a very detailed report of everything we needed to know to enjoy our vacation in her home. We had five children who wanted to sleep in one room and prior to our arrival the owner had arranged for that.
The house was very well appointed with all the amenities vacationers would want and was very clean and uncluttered.
We'd be happy to come again.
We are just a two minute drive to downtown Manchester, 5-10 minutes to fabulous restaurants, including Chantecleer, Copper Grouse, Silver Fork, and The Perfect Wife, to name just a few; we are approximately 11 minutes to the Horse Show at Harold Beebe Farm, and about 13 miles to excellent skiing at Bromley Mountain and 17 miles to outstanding skiing at Stratton!
