The Battenkill Valley Mansion in the spacious Green Mountains of Vermont is a true refuge. This private home is nestled in a 5 acre property in bucolic Manchester Village. The house features 2 full size refrigerators, 2 ovens, 10 gas burners and 2 propane grills. You can make yourself at home here and never need to leave. We welcome you to make yourself home here for a long weekend, week or season!

Our housekeepers are doing an extra thorough job to deep clean the home and disinfect all surfaces in between check ins. We are also leaving a full day for the house to sit empty between rentals.

We just added a private pond at The Battenkill Valley Mansion. The Wilburton resort also has tennis courts you can use. Please bring your own rackets and balls.

We are following Vermont state guidelines - all guests must email that they are healthy and have self quarantined for 7 days before coming into the state of Vermont. Please call me before booking so we can review state guidelines. You can reach me at the Wilburton Inn in Manchester Village, VT.

Grocery stores are open. Local restaurants offer take out and outside dining. Our chef can provide drop off catering. Our organic farm sells veggies. You can make yourself at home here and never need to leave.

We look forward to being your country house getaway and sharing the beauty of Vermont with you and family .

I've been a professional songwriter in New York City for 20 years ever since I graduated from Brown University in 1991, but I've recently come home to Manchester, Vermont to run the magnificent Wilburton Inn with my dad and my brother Max (who gave up his job teaching at Harvard to run it with me!) Our parents owned the inn for the past 32 years but our mom very, very sadly passed away several years ago. We are honored to continue her legacy of personal hospitality and sharing our love of Vermont with new friends and travelers. We have the best social life ever because of all of our interesting guests that come to our rental homes and inn every week. I still live in Spring Street in SoHo every other week, but my heart is now in Manchester VT and I can't wait to come back every weekend and every other week. Come join me and my King Charles Cavalier puppy, Jetson! We really look forward to meeting you! You can learn more about us at the Wilburton website or seeing our Wilburton videos on You Tube. The Wilburton Inn is a majestic hill top mansion and 30 acre estate with 8 different private vacation homes. Vermont is a four-season vacation spot - full of sports, arts, culture, and discount designer shopping. What can be better? Please come and visit us!
