In the Winter enjoy skiing at Stratton and Bromley mountains, cross country slopes, pristine lakes, biking trails, and wonderful hiking.

Outdoor Adventures

Golfing, sliding, zip lining, rafting, boating, horseback riding — even jumping off 20-foot cliffs at the oldest Marble Quarry in Vermont — are perfect for summer fun.

In Fall, take in the dramatic foliage colors with hikes or a drive up Equinox Mountain for a stunning view of Vermont, New York, and Canada!

Manchester offers many delicious dining options — from the family-friendly Manchester Pizza House to the elegant Mistral’s to the romantic and pricey Reluctant Panther.

If you are here in the summer we recommend that you enjoy the Wilburton Inn’s organic farm to table vegetarian dinners every Wednesday evening from 7-9pm. Live music and delicious organic vegetables and breads made with love by our very own Earth, Sky, Time Community Farm.
