I think everyone should have their wedding and wedding reception at the Inn at Manchester! I will never be able to thank the Hanes family, who run the inn together, enough for creating the most absolute perfect wedding weekend for us. Our guests can't stop talking about how warm and welcoming the Hanes family were. And many guests are telling us they would like to have their wedding at the inn as well! I very much hope they do so we can go back and celebrate another wedding! Nancy helped me every step of the way, was more accommodating than I could have ever imagined, is so kind and such a pleasure to work with! Our ceremony was in Birch Grove at the inn, which was so peaceful and just perfect. Our guests then enjoyed a cocktail hour playing yard games outside and had the reception inside the Celebration Barn. Frank makes the BEST breakfast, we all loved it! The rooms and the landscaping are immaculate! We can't say enough about the Inn at Manchester and we will be forever grateful for everything they have done for us!Sent on 07/05/2016

Perfect Wedding Weekend!
We fell in love with the Inn at Manchester from the minute we stepped on the property and we are so happy we chose this venue for our wedding. We didn't just connect with the barn and the beautiful Inn, we felt so comfortable with the staff and they truly made us feel like family the entire weekend. Nancy made the planning process so easy and she was there every step of the way to make sure our questions were answered and our vision was coming to life! Our entire family had an amazing time and we cannot wait to get back to the Inn soon for a getaway weekend!Sent on 04/03/2019

Outstanding Inn with modern facilities and a historical ambiance all nestled in the Green Mountains of Vermont
Our experience with the Inn at Manchester started with Nancy Hanes Ess who manages the events and marketing of this lovely property. She represents what the Inn at Manchester really is... a modern approach with sensitivity to history and surroundings and making their clients feel like all that matters is their experience. The rooms at the Inn are well appointed and historically quaint. This is Bed and Breakfast, an Inn, a Hotel and a first class wedding reception location set in the most beautiful town of Manchester, Vt at the foot of Mt. Equinox. We took over the property for the weekend and it felt like we were home. Nancy took care of us all along the journey which started over a year ago. New owners, Brian and Gabby made sure we knew who they were as they served us breakfast, attended to any issues though we had so few. The Wedding reception was an outstanding success again with Nancy at the helm. We would highly recommend this venue for anyone wanting a true Vermont wedding experience with world class service and support staff.Sent on 10/17/2018

A lovely country inn with modern amenities! We adore the Inn at Manchester, and their team is dedicated, friendly, and easy to work with. The new Celebration Barn blends perfectly with the rest of the property, while having great light, open space, and limitless decor opportunities to make the event your own. Highly recommended!
What a wonderful wedding venue, from the beautiful bridal suite to the gardens, stream and classic Vermont barn. Nancy is a dream to work with, very professional and very friendly!
It is amazing what a caring and well trained staff can do. Nancy and the crew at the Inn at Manchester worked non-stop to create an amazing day for the bride. They clearly take great pride in what they do. I absolutely can't wait to work with them again.
