  • We can't say enough about the team at the Inn at Manchester! We decided to proceed with our wedding in October with a reduced guest list and some modifications. Even though our guest list was reduced and we had many restrictions we needed to comply with, our wedding day felt just as special as I'd have imagined under normal circumstances. Everything went off without a hitch and Nancy made sure that we had nothing to worry about the entire weekend. The grounds and venue were beautiful, we even managed to find some beautiful orange foliage hanging on in late October. I'd 100% recommend the Inn to any couple who wants to have their wedding weekend all on location and have their closest family and friends stay on site with them. Everything was amazing! Thank you Brian & Nancy!

    I still cannot get over how amazing your pictures are! I have been through them a few times now. We feel so honored to have been a part of such a special weekend. We are so happy for you and Greg and wish you many many years of happiness together! The icing the cake for us is that y'all aren't too far away so we'll look forward to seeing you before too long. Thank you for letting us host you and your friends here! Lots of love an hugs from the entire Inn at Manchester Family here!

  • Brian & Nancy were unbelievably helpful during the planning process and helped settle our nerves ( especially during a pandemic!). They helped bring our vision to life and were super professional and up to terms with keeping everyone safe and to health code during these trying times. Our families greatly appreciated this and we truly believe that if it wasn’t for the Inn — we would have likely not have been comfortable having a wedding. We were able to have the wedding we wanted (with a few tweaks) and we are so happy. The day of coordination is probably the best part- everything went seamless throughout the day. I cannot recommend this venue more. We will be back to visit! Breakfasts are to die for and the super super soft sheets will make you want to move in!

  • Nancy, Brian, and the team at the Inn at Manchester made our wedding weekend a dream. The team was incredibly responsive and helped accommodate our vision seamlessly. Working with Nancy was like working with a trusted friend - her advice, opinions, and connections in Manchester made planning a wedding less stressful. The venue itself was beautiful and our guests were so happy about the service they received.

    Your vision was so stunning Trey! Everything you and Jaime came up with was just breathtaking! We still cannot wait to see all of the pictures - but even more so we cannot wait to have y'all come back and see us again! Stay in touch! We'll see you soon! Best, Nancy

  • We couldn't have asked for a better location and team for our wedding at the Inn. We had the whole inn rented for our family for the weekend, and the service by the staff there, and the whole experience was amazing. Nancy was so helpful all the way through the planning, and (except for the rain instead of snow we got in January) everything went off without a hitch! Many of our family and friends are planning return trips to the Inn in the future, and we will certainly be back again! Seriously, everything was perfect. Can't recommend them enough!

    responded with the following comments.

    Keri, we were so honored to have been a part of your big day. I wish we could have controlled the rain but at least we got the pictures in with the snow before rain came! I still cannot get over how beautiful all of them turned out - which is not surprising based on your vision! I really hope everyone does get to come back for a visit before too long. In the mean time, stay in touch and know you always have a special place here with us! All our love, Nancy & the Inn at Manchester Family

  • They say when two people get married, that two families become one, but this is not true when you get married at the Inn at Manchester. This is because three families become one, because you also get everyone at the Inn as a new family too, and what a beautiful, thoughtful and loving family they are! Getting married in the Celebration Barn is a must. Not only do you get the beautiful property, you are surrounded by the beautiful mountains that Vermont is known for. The ceremony spot is a beautiful, private spot and the Cocktail area/Celebration Barn are gorgeous as well. The space is great for a nice wedding size of about 100 people (which personally to me is the perfect size for a wedding), but can also fit quite a few more if needed if snuggly. You also get Nancy as an event coordinator. I don't have the time, or space to get into why this is one of the best things about the Inn. You will know the moment you come to visit why she is the absolute best! Lastly, when you get married in ... Read more

    Honestly it's a little hard to come with words to respond to this. Thank you so much Derek and Kristen. I still remember coming in one day for a scheduled meeting and meeting all of your family and a few friends one Saturday morning. I feel like there were at least 12 of us in that meeting and it couldn't have been more fun. That is how the entire planning process went with y'all - seedless and fun. I cannot believe the day has come and gone but I am so happy you're so close by. I feel so lucky to have y'all in our lives here and cannot wait to see you again! Sending you lots of love, Nancy

  • The Inn at Manchester is a beautiful venue! Nancy at the Inn was wonderful to work with and guided me through the process. She answered my questions and gave excellent advice. Nancy and her team made sure everything went smoothly throughout our weekend. We did need to book the entire inn for our Saturday wedding. Our guests were happy to stay there and loved the rooms! I highly recommend!

    responded with the following comments.

    Kathi, I still reference Kristi and Rob's ceremony as one of the most touching ceremonies we've witnessed here. You and Rob's dad did such an amazing job officiating together and then Kristi and Rob's vows were just beautiful. The way your two families came together and celebrated such a special couple was so amazing. Thank you for letting us be a part of it. Stay in touch and know you all always have a special place here. Sending big hugs, Nancy

  • Aside from choosing each other, choosing the Inn at Manchester as our venue was the best wedding decision we made. We cannot recommend the Inn and their wonderful staff enough. Thanks to the Inn’s event coordinator, Nancy, and her hard-working team, our wedding was absolutely perfect in every way. From our first phone conversation over a year before our wedding until we left the Inn the day after, Nancy was attentive, thoughtful, and organized. She checked in regularly to ensure we were on track during the planning process and guided our vendor recommendations (especially helpful since we’re from out of state). During our wedding weekend, the top-notch hospitality from the Inn staff never ceased. Our guests raved about their beautiful rooms, the meticulously-kept grounds, the friendly staff, and the incredible breakfasts. Almost 6 months later, they’re still talking about how fabulous the Inn was. Nancy’s experience and attention to detail truly shined on our wedding d... Read more

    Jess and Steve, thank you so much for all of your kind words here! It was so much fun working with you both throughout the entire planning process and especially weekend of, seeing everything come together. We hope we'll get to have you both back for years to come! Sending you both a really big hug and all of our love! Best, Nancy

  • We can't recommend The Inn enough! Nancy was a dream to work with throughout the whole year - flexible, organized, great suggestions, calm and positive. The setting is amazing! Turly breathtaking. The Inn's grounds are meticulous kept - from rooms to florals to every details. The bridal suite was spacious enough for my 4 bridesmaids to get their hair done, make up for me, lunch to eat, and 10 assorted other family and friends spent the morning of the wedding with us. Having The Inn entirely booked by wedding guests made the whole weekend an intimate and loving time - hanging by the pool, sitting on the porch with our coffee, or having a drink at their adorable bar. Truly unforgettable - our guests had the time of their lives!

    Tina, Thank you thank you thank you for your kind words and more importantly for choosing us for your wedding weekend. We had the time of our lives celebrating with y'all too! I still cannot get over how beautiful the weekend was and how all of your ideas and plans came together so beautifully - of course, with the help of the oh so talented Susan! I'm still in aw of those tablecloths you had too! Cannot wait to recommend similar ones to our future couples :) Please know you'll always have a very special place here and we will be ready to welcome you (and any of your friends and family) back with open arms whenever y'all are able to make it back for a visit. Sending you and Scott a big hug and all our love!

  • I had my wedding at the Inn July 2019 and it was the perfect day. My side of the family flew in from out of town and it was so nice to have everyone staying in one place on property. The grounds are immaculate and the rooms are unique and well kept. Breakfast is delicious. They really cater to their wedding parties. Nancy is AMAZING! She was easy to get in touch with, she responded quickly, and she kept the wedding day running smoothly. My guests still mention how much they loved the wedding and the Inn. You will be so happy you booked your wedding here!

    Thank you for sharing these pictures! I had almost forgotten just how beautiful of a day it was for y'all's wedding. I wish we could go back and do it all again. Thank you for your kind words as well. It was our honor to be a part of such a special celebration. You and Craig have such a strong relationship that just radiates from you both and it was more fun celebrating with you and all of your friends and family. We'll be looking forward to the next time we get to have you back for a visit. Lots of love, Nancy

  • The Inn at Manchester was the best choice we could have made for our wedding. Nancy and the whole staff were helpful throughout the entire process and made us feel welcomed and comfortable every time we visited the Inn. It rained the day of our wedding but plan B under the patio worked perfectly and actually made the ceremony feel more intimate. Nancy didn't miss a beat the entire day and left us with nothing to worry about. Our officiant unfortunately last minute couldn't attend our rehearsal and Nancy stepped in and walked us through the entire ceremony and even organized a backup officiant if needed for the wedding day. Your guests will enjoy the delicious breakfast served every morning and spending time on the front porch. We could have asked for a better venue for a Vermont wedding.

    Michelle, your wedding was such a perfect day - rain and all! It was so much fun having your family and friends here to celebrate. All of your ideas and just your overall vision was so beautiful. I still cannot get over some of the pictures. I wish we could go back and relive the entire weekend again. Hopefully we'll get to see you both again before too long. You will always have a special place here.

  • Words cannot adequately describe how happy we are with our experience at the Inn at Manchester. We knew from the moment we first visited that this was a special place, but in the 18 months between when we booked and our wedding day, we were able to see just HOW special. The space is gorgeous, obviously, from the Celebration Barn where our reception was held to the ceremony site outdoors and OH MY GOSH the suites. But what really sets IAM apart is their incredible team. Nancy blew me away on multiple occasions throughout this long planning and wedding day execution with her sheer awesomeness. She is so professional, easygoing, communicative, responsive... I could go on and on. Honestly, I credit my wedding day bliss primarily to Nancy, who was five steps ahead of everything. Gabi, Brian, Virgil, and literally everyone we interacted with that works at the Inn was SO friendly and knowledgeable and accommodating. We had the best day ever and our guests, especially those that stayed at the... Read more

    Paige, I'm not going to lie. I just teared up a bit re-reading this. Thank you so much for all of your kind words and for the pictures. They are amazing! You and Quinn are just so special to us and we wish you a lifetime of happiness together (hopefully dotted with a few visits back to see us and maybe even celebrate a few anniversaries). When I think back to your wedding weekend and how amazing your florals came out, I am still just in awe. I'm ready to hire your family to come do florals on a regular for us ;) Please continue to stay in touch! Big hugs from all of us here at the Inn, but especially me! Love, Nancy

  • Words can’t do justice to how magical our wedding at the Inn at Manchester was! A part of me is still in shock with how flawlessly beautiful our wedding turned out, and both my wife and I feel so fortunate for having chosen such an amazing venue/team. The Inn, the barn, and the grounds are all meticulously kept and truly picturesque. I remember both my wife and I making audible gasps when we first stumbled upon the venue, and continued to be beyond impressed by all aspects of the planning and preparation. The Inn at Manchester has truly perfected the whole wedding planning and prep process, totally eradicating any amount of stress that weddings can cause, and also being incredibly informative with anything and everything that comes with it. More than that, the Inn staffs a team that is professional and hard-working, and demonstrate a true passion for weddings. Everyone we encountered was so friendly, accommodating, and enthusiastic. It was awesome to have them with us throughout the ... Read more

  • I was where you are about a year ago – endlessly scrolling through a sea of perfect 5 star reviews trying to pick the perfect wedding venue. It’s overwhelming, stressful, way more intense than you were expecting, and likely the first decision you need to make before planning everything else. The best thing you can do is pick a location that will remove as much stress as possible from your big day. Here’s just a handful of the reasons why the Inn at Manchester should be your top choice: -Beautiful picturesque Vermont location -Amazing grounds that are your private retreat for the weekend for you and your guests -In-door/out-door setup, so no need to worry about the weather -Centrally located in Manchester close to shops, restaurants, bars, and other hotel accommodations for your guests to explore -MOST IMPORTANTLY – NANCY AND THE WHOLE TEAM AT THE INN! My wife and I got married at the Inn at Manchester this past May and to say that Nancy and her team took care of us is ... Read more

  • 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!

    Alicia, when I think back to your wedding I still get a bit emotional. It was such an honor to be a part of your big day. I'm not sure that fierce is the word I'm really going for - but it comes to mind when I think of you. How hard you worked towards your wedding and how you mustered through the cold in that beautiful dress, without noticeably shivering once during the ceremony. I love that we still hear from your family and hope we get to see you all again before too long. Until the next time, just know we love y'all and are still, just so happy for you both. Best wishes and all my love, Nancy

  • 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 experi... Read more

    Bill, thank you so much! I have looked back on pictures and am just still amazed at how perfect of a day it was. We will be forever grateful for having the opportunity to be a part of such a special weekend and to top it off, getting to meet everyone who attended. I love the fact that y'all are so close so I know we'll stay in touch with you and Marybeth AND Kristen and Nick :) See you soon! Best, Nancy
