Innkeeper Georgette Levis, was the sister of Lazard CEO Bruce Wasserstein and beloved Broadway playwright Wendy Wasserstein. Guests are always surprised to see the huge Sisters Rosensweig poster in the inn’s living room. Georgette's fnick-name was Gorgeous and she inspired Madeleine Kahn's Tony award winning role in Wendy’s Broadway hit.

The 4 Levis children include
Tajlei: an Andover, Columbia, and NYU law school grad who lives in NYC and is writing the Broadway bound musical adaptation of the TV classic, Green Acres.
Melissa: a Middlesex School, Brown University and NYU award-winning songwriter entertained thousands of NYC preschoolers with her band Moey’s Music Party. Melissa is delighted to be the new Maria Von Trapp and Vermont singing innkeeper.
Oliver: a Cornell grad (where he met his wife Bonnie) Together they founded Earth Sky Time Community Farm & Bakery, a thriving organic farm 3 miles from the inn. Their breads are a delicious part of the Wilburton inn breakfast and their organic farm night dinners every Wednesday in summer are not to be missed!
Max: a Columbia, Harvard Divinity School and soon to be Boston University PhD. Max is the family intellectual and could have been a wonderful rabbi but instead chose to be a scholar and innkeeper. Max collaborates with Albert to pioneer an on-line program of emotional education and self-knowledge.

This house is located on a spectacular, historic, 30 acre hilltop estate with phenomenal views of the green mountains. It is off the main road so guests can truly relax and truly get away from it all, yet it is centrally located in the heart of Manchester Village - just 1 mile to Hildene and the Equinox Hotel.
We can cater your events at the house through our inn.
Visit our organic farm and bakery 3 miles from the house. Enjoy the Museum of the Creative Process sculpture trail that retraces myths and the matriarchs on our 30 acre estate.
Though you have a fantastic kitchen in this rental home, you can relax on vacation and stroll over to the Wilburton Mansion for a delicious breakfast or dinner.
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 (party of 10) have stayed at Green Mountain House during the last week of 2015. We all enjoyed and loved this house. The house was a very cozy and full of characters. The host (Melissa) was superb nice and sweet and great friendly/prompt service from the estate. The estate was in the great location with beautiful mountain view and less than 10 mins drive to Manchester Village Outlet.
The Levis family is a special one, as is their Wilburtin Inn.
We were fortunate to stay at the Green Mt.House, as it was comfortable, very well kept and a a great space. With the large living, dining and kitchen space there was enough room for 4 adults , 3 children and our lab.
We had friends in for dinner and the housewas perfect for entertaining.
Finally, mattresses are important to us and all the beds were comfy.
We rented the Green Mt House for a second time -- Manchester a good destination for family and friends coming from both Boston and NYC. Since our group size exceeded the house, we also rented two additional rooms on the Wilburton Inn property. We could all comfortably gather to eat and hang out at the Green Mt House -- nice open floor plan. Beds extremely comfortable; Inn staff helpful and attentive. Stratton Mt a half hour away; Manchester's outlets just five minutes away. The Wilburton property offers opportunities for walking, x-country skiing right out the door.
We loved our vacation at the Green Mountain House @ the Wilburton Inn. We were a group of 9, with five children, so we needed a house offering flexible sleeping arrangements and a good common area to hang out. This house exceeded all of our expectations and allowed us to have an easy, great vacation. The layout is perfect, with an open floor plan and space for all to unwind. The bedrooms are clean and spacious, with all sorts of bedding options. And as others have mentioned, the view from the deck is exceptional!
The property's location is perfect - a very short drive to all Manchester has to offer and just a few more minutes to Bromley. We really loved the Wilburton for this reason - it's just perfectly situated for whatever you may be doing on your vacation. We were skiing every day at Bromley and never tired of the drive.
We also enjoyed the idea of staying in a private home with access to the inn's facilities. It's a different experience than renting a home and being all by yourself (convenience, safety, maintenance...). And while we didn't attend, the New Year's festivities at the inn looked super fun.
To be fair, the décor is a bit dated in some regards, but I think that adds to the charm and the experience. Think 'Mad Men' on vacation and you're there. We will definitely be back!
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!
