Spacious Carriage House in beautiful Manchester neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at the Converted Carriage House in Manchester. The upstairs apartment is located behind a lovely large home in an exceptionally nice area of Manchester within easy walking distance of The Equinox Resort and golf club. We were able to walk to many activities from the location. The unit itself is quite large and the kitchen is very well equipped, with the only criticism of it being that the refrigerator was quite small. The bath is very large and clean, but I would have appreciated having a little more space for toiletries, like a small storage unit to augment the sink area. The living area was quite comfortable, but in the evenings the lighting was a bit sparse in that space. All in all, it was a very comfortable space for a couple or two couples, but I would not recommend it for very young children because of the stairs in the middle of the unit and the locked door in the hay loft that could be a safety hazard for a very curious child.

Thanks, Nancy and Jim

Owner's Response: Hi Nancy and Jim, You were wonderful guests and thank you for your review. Just for clarification, the exterior panel of hay door is a fixed panel and does not open. Only the interior wood door inside the fixed panel opens, so no-one can fall out. The refrigerator is not a full size, it is a compact model with freezer about 4.5 cu. ft. Also, it is agreed that the open interior stairway down to the laundry room may be an issue for very young children. Hope to see you again! Best regards, Joe

Charming Carriage House around the corner from The Equinox and less than a mile to Manchester Center

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 loved our stay at Joe and Lynn's Charming Carriage house. Joe gave us instructions to let ourselves in with an electronic lock which was easy, and we checked ourselves out by leaving our keys on the kitchen table. We sent in our request to rent 18 hours before we arrived, and not only did Joe respond quickly but the unit was prepared perfectly for our arrival.

The house was super clean and very well equipped. When we arrived we were pleased to find that the futon in the living room was already made up into a double bed for our 3rd child.

We appreciated the 3 air-conditioning units which cooled the area perfectly even with temperatures in the high 80's to low 90's during our stay. There was a washer/dryer and lots of board games available in the lower level. Although we didn't use them we noticed that the kitchen had all the standards along with nice extras like a blender and crockpot. We used the iron/ironing board and noticed they had a steamer available as well. We appreciated that they supplied us with a bag of Starbucks coffee for the coffee maker and a box of Starbucks hot chocolate which was a big hit with our 3 kids! Very thoughtful!!

Another nice touch was the basket of toiletries/necessities in the bathroom just in case we forgot anything. It is also worth mentioning that the bedding was high quality and that they supplied us with extra linens and many extra towels. Although we didn't get to meet them, it is clear that this couple takes pride in how they present their rental. We would absolutely recommend this property to friends, and are looking forward to visiting Manchester and this adorable carriage house again next year!

Quiet street, very private, a true vacation from the pace and sounds of urban/subirban life

  • 5 of 5

Spacious fully equipped apt located close to hiking trails, as well as shops, restaurants and services of user friendly Vt town. Although website did not mention it, the apt does include a washer dryer, very helpful in warm weather when doing a lot of outdoor activities. Friendly and helpful on property owners. If you like Vt and the Green Mountains, this is an ideal place to stay.

Perfect Location and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The owner responded quickly to communication through HomeAway and made sure I had everything I needed. The location is perfect if you are skiing at Bromley or Stratton. The house was clean and well kept. I would definitely return again for a Vermont ski weekend.

Overall I had a great time and would recommend to anyone looking to stay in the Manchester VT area.

Charming space, great location!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was perfect for us (my wife, daughter and I) and much better than being cooped up in a hotel room, especially since the temperature was below zero most of the weekend! The location is great - right in historic Manchester and less than 0.5 mile from the Equinox. The kitchen was surprisingly well-equipped. The only minor item worth mentioning is a small hot water heater (for a teenage girl anyway). Spacing our showers so the water could reheat worked fine. It's very nice that the owners provided coffee and basic items like paper towels, etc. We would definitely come back.

Fantastic vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect getaway cottage. It was pretty much exactly as described, and beautifully appointed. It was the perfect location from which to do the horse show and all the local amenities (I did the outlets one too many times though!) the hosts are lovely--we only saw them at check in, but that was our choice. They were available if we needed them, but we didn't. I would highly recommend this cottage (we were 3 people because my husband couldn't come, but with him and one more the cottage can sleep 5 comfortably!
