About Ariane Tallman
This house was originally purchased to be part of the inventory for a high end vacation home club. It was furnished, outfitted, and detailed with this purpose in mind. The business was ultimately sold, but we retained the property. Our family has enjoyed many gatherings at this wonderful home, as have numerous guests. We welcome you to also enjoy a special experience in a home away from home.
Ariane Tallman purchased this House in 2003
Why Ariane Tallman chose Manchester Center
We sought a house in a location that had the feel of being among the mountains and meadows of Vermont, but not isolated. We are minutes away from everything, great restaurants, shopping, art galleries, antiquing, spas, and all the sports associated with the Vermont seasons.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The exact experience we were looking to have. Perfect in every way.
Close to town yet far enough away in a tranquil setting.
We love to hear everything worked out as hoped. We look forward to having you back anytime.
Wonderful stay for Vermont Summer Festival!
We had the most amazing stay on River Road when we were in town for the Vermont Summer Festival horse show. The house is better than the pictures: very clean, comfortable furnishings and extremely picturesque. We had a great stay for 4 adults and one baby. We will definitely book again!
Wow! I couldn't ask for a better recommendation for a visit to our home. We do try our best to make a stay on River Road one to repeat. See you next year, or maybe sooner!
Extended Family Weekend in July
This home is lovely! Beautifully furnished, spacious, gorgeous garden and property -- we loved the tea house and proximity to Manchester's sights and attractions. Owners were delightful to work with, and we appreciated the option to bring our dogs.
You were terrific guests. Please think of us again when venturing back to Manchester.
The perfect location to enjoy beautiful Vermont and Manchester! We loved the property and would recommend it. Perfect for our family with lots of space to enjoy!
This was our second trip to this property, and once again, we absolutely loved it! The layout and space was perfect for a trip with three families, including two preschoolers. The kids loved all the toys that were thoughtfully made available in the study/playroom, and the adults had lovely cozy nights by the fire, playing board games and reading. The beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen was well-stocked. And, of course, the view is gorgeous. We also enjoyed the delicious bottle of prosecco the hosts thoughtfully left for us! Overall, a perfect long weekend - we can't wait to come back!
It was a pleasure to have you return to River Road. And I'm so pleased the second time did not disappoint. I have been told over and over again our home is a wonderful space for family and friends to gather. We look forward to welcoming you again. Thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review.
This was our third time renting this house in Manchester, VT. We love the house - it is spacious, with charming (usable!) nooks and crannies. One "extra" room became our game room; another the music room; and another was our lounge. And these are just the "spare" rooms! This was our first winter visit and it was perfect -- a wood burning stove, hiking on adjacent trails, family dinners in the dining room. If you can imagine what a quintessential Vermont experience is, this is it. We have found the owners and house manager always approachable and helpful. If you rent this house, we hope you love it as much as we do!
Wonderful having you visit again. I am thrilled you love our home in all seasons, it is a special place. You are welcome anytime.
