We stayed at the Green Mountain House for a weekend with family to celebrate my grandmother's life. Everyone was responsive and extremely helpful, and the house itself was the perfect place for us. We had exactly the right amount of space with 11 adults (3 couples and 5 by themselves) and had plenty of extra space when we had a few extra relatives over during the day for dinner and games. The rooms are all spacious and comfortable, and the common areas are extremely relaxing. The views are also spectacular and the grounds are a great place to walk around and enjoy nature. Would definitely recommend and hope we have an occasion to celebrate here again as well.
This is our 2nd winter stay in the oh so comfy Green Mountain House with our family of 5 adults and 2 children (ages 2 1/2 and 4 1/2). What did we do in our 5 days there? Horse-drawn sleigh ride, sledding, skiing at Bromley, shopping in Manchester, family dinners in local kid-friendly restaurants, family dinners at home prepared in the well-equipped kitchen, warm family evenings in front of the fireplace. We all look forward to another visit!
It was a perfect place for a small family gathering, very cozy with a manificent mountain view. There was something to do for all in the group; some went to Stratton to ski, others went to the beautiful Manchester town for some shopping. (within 15 to 20 minutes from the house) We even had a small hill for the small ones to go sledding. The house is well maintain, we had all we needed to make a nice family meal. All we needed to do is go food shopping at the supermarket, which was 2 miles to get supplies. Melissa and her family gave us a warm welcome.
Our family of 7 adults and 2 young children (1 1/2 and 3 1/2 years) stayed at the Green Mountain House for 5 nights during the 2016 mid-February freeze. The ample warmth inside - both from the heaters and from everyone's good spirits due to the comforts of this home - made this a special 1st time family vacation. The house has a lovely large living room that includes a working fireplace. There is a well-equipped kitchen that allowed easy preparation of meals enjoyed as a family around the large table in the dining room. The arrangement of bedrooms on the 2 floors of the house allowed for the children and their parents to occupy adjacent rooms on the main floor, with everyone else in the bedrooms upstairs. For the skiers among us, including a first time 3 1/2 year-old, the house is wonderfully located just minutes from Bromley and approximately 40 minutes from Stratton. Melissa and her family and staff at the Wilburton Inn deserve special mention for their warmth and attentiveness – be it for lending books and games to the children or for quickly responding to our occasional request. Our time at Green Mountain House was a 5-star family vacation that we all agreed should be repeated!
We are old friends from Philadelphia who spent the MLK long weekend at the Green Mountain House. From the moment we picked up the keys to the house at the Inn to our departure, we all kept marveling at how comfortable and cozy it was. Perfect really for those who want a confortable space to talk and laugh together.
The beds were quite comfortable so we all caught up on our sleep while here. The views amazing. We spent a fair bit of time just reading and talking while sitting on the couches around the fireplace. On our last night, we cooked dinner after visiting the Sunday Farmers Market and found all of the pots, plates and cooking tools needed in the well stocked kitchen.
On the morning we checked out, we had breakfast in the Inn and realized we wished we had eaten there earlier in our stay. The waiter so friendly and interesting, the food fabulous, and the organic breads amazing!!

The Trinity College Ski Team had a great stay at the Wilburton Inn in Manchester. The Green Mountain House proved to be plenty of space for over 10 people and provided a beautiful view from the bedrooms and large porch. Next time we come to Manchester, we will be giving our friends at Wilburton a call!
Came here for MLK weekend for my sister's bachelorette with a total of 12 girls and the Green Mountain House was perfect for our needs! The house was clean and we loved the open concept living room, kitchen, and dining area. The kitchen was also fully stocked so all we had to do was bring the groceries. We were concerned that with 12 girls and the cold temperatures we would run out of hot water, but there was plenty which is definitely something worth mentioning. The only thing I would note is that the house technically sleeps 11 as one of the beds is a crib. We spoke to the front desk and they said our options would be a cot or airbed, but that the couch was probably much more comfortable than those two options so we went with that. Shortly after Ed stopped by and made sure we were all set and brought by extra linens, pillows, toiletries, etc and said he would be more than happy to set up the cot or airbed...turns out the couch is actually super comfortable! The house is an excellent location, just a short 5 min drive to everything. Overall our stay was great and I would definitely recommend this property to others!
