We look forward to welcoming you to a wonderful Vermont vacation at the Wilburton Inn vacation rentals! Please let us know what time you will be arriving. Check in is any time after 3pm. Our number is 802-362-2500. The front desk is usually staffed till 8pm . If you’ll be arriving later, your key will be in an envelope with your name on it on the front desk of the Wilburton Inn reception area or in the green late arrival box to the left of the Wilburton mansion front door.
FINDING YOUR HOUSE
The GPS of the Wilburton inn (where you’ll pick up your keys and leave a security deposit on your credit card) is 257 Wilburton Drive, Manchester Village, VT 05254. The Wilburton is located on River Road which is just 1/2 a mile off Route 7 A in the heart of Manchester Village.
There are signs in front of each home to be sure you can find it easily. The Green Mountain House is red and located to the right of the swimming pool and main parking area up a wooded private drive. The other homes are on the paved Wilburton driveway that continues from the circle in front of the Wilburton mansion.
The Innkeepers Cottage and Equinox View Villa are green cottages on the left. Strawberry Hill Villa is green and has three rows of yellow balconies on one side and two stone lions by the large bronze sculpture. (You can park on either side of the home.) The Reunion House is a brown and brick home on the right, on the driveway beyond our Maxwell Suites House.
The Battenkill Valley Mansion is located half a mile away at 2106 River Road. It is set back from the road on a long pine lined driveway. (Look for a white mailbox to the left of the driveway and a yellow/red circular sign to the right of the driveway that says Teleion Holon. It is the fourth driveway on the left from the Wilburton Inn driveway. )
Our Manchester Village House is located at 3928 Main Street, 1.5 miles from the Inn on Rt. 7, on the right side of the street as you drive from the inn into Manchester center. It's located behind Mulligan's Restaurant, directly across from the Inn at Manchester. It's a gray cottage located behind a gray fence for privacy.
