  • In reading through the Inn at Manchester reviews on this site I think it is obvious to say there is very impressive pattern among them, and they proved to be true in every way. All of the guests at our wedding said the barn was the highlight of the weekend. We have been to so many wedding venues that churn out two or three or four weddings in a weekend, so this is a completely different vibe where we have the entire property for our family and friends for the weekend, and it's a million times more special. The place is beautiful as you can see in all the photos but even more impressive was the entire staff. They were all so pleasant to work with and really went out of the the way to make sure our event was perfect in every way. I highly highly recommend this venue for anyone looking to do any type of special event in southern Vermont - or even just get away for a weekend! Definitely will be back!

    We're going to hold you to come back Andrew! Thank you for sharing the pictures! Love seeing all of them plus all of the pictures from your wedding. What a tremendous weekend. I also wanted to let you know how much we appreciate all of your kind words. We hope you'll stay in touch! Best, Nancy

  • On September 16, 2017, we celebrated our daughter’s wedding at the Inn at Manchester. From our first meeting to begin planning the event with Nancy Hanes Ess several months ago, to our saying goodbye to the last wedding guest on September 16th, the entire process could not have been better. With Nancy’s help, all of our expectations, concerns, and wishes were not only met, but exceeded. And the Inn at Manchester, with its adjoining Celebration Barn, is a beautiful location - and the perfect venue for this type of event. There were 110 guests attending the reception, and all were accommodated comfortably. We can’t be more pleased, and are very happy to highly recommend the Inn at Manchester, and the Celebration Barn.

    Fred and Diana, your incredibly kind words just make my day. We could not have been more honored to be a part of Sara and Dan's day. They are a really special couple and anyone can see how perfect they are together. Cannot wait to have that glass of wine with y'all next time you're in town and hopefully see both Sara and Dan soon too!

  • IAM is absolutely incredible! Nancy was a huge help throughout the whole planning process answering any questions along the way. The weekend of the wedding Nancy, Jojo, and the rest of the crew went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. Our videographer and photographer had never been there before and just kept raving about how picturesque the whole venue was. We will definitely be back at the IAM for many anniversaries to come!

    Thanks so much Shelby! For your kind words and for letting us be a part of such a special weekend! All of the detail and work that you and Devon both put into everything was pretty amazing. We might be hiring him in the future for some installations ;) We would love nothing more than to have you come back. Please stay in touch and know we'll be reaching out next time we're headed up your way. Sending all our love from the entire Inn at Manchester Family P.S. Not going to lie... y'all still have my favorite wedding email yet!

  • Our son got married here last month and we cannot say enough good things about the Inn at Manchester's venue and staff. They never tired of our questions (and there were many) and were ready to assist with every little detail. The venue is beautiful. It was great to have the rustic feel of a Vermont barn wedding but with modern amenities.

    Janice, thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. Even more than that, we just couldn't be more thankful to have been a part of Shelby and Devon's wedding. You could have asked 100 more questions and we wouldn't have minded - that's what we're here for. Cannot wait to have y'all come back and visit one of these days!

  • The team at the Inn at Manchester is AMAZING! We could not have been happier to have chosen their venue as our wedding location. We took over the entire Inn with bridal party and family for the weekend and it was so special to have everyone together. The grounds are spectacular, staff is above and beyond accommodating and everyone had the best time. Nancy is nothing short of incredible, she is wonderful to work with and truly made our vision come true. I didn't worry about a thing on our wedding day because I knew Nancy would take care of it. If you are looking to get married in Manchester, I highly recommend the Inn. The barn is beautiful and our guests loved the ability to sit around the fire pit after dinner. We will look back on our wedding day with so many great memories for the rest of our lives and it is all because of the team at the Inn.

    Laura, you and John are truly amazing. It was so much fun working together and so rewarding, even on our end, to have such a beautiful outcome. What a weekend! I still cannot believe y'all jumped in the quarry the morning of the wedding! Fingers crossed for a good winter season so we'll see y'all sooner than later!

  • The Inn at Manchester was an absolutely amazing venue! The grounds were stunning and everything was set up perfectly. All the rooms were clean and tidy. All my guests raved about the accommodations and how they plan to come back to visit. Nancy and the rest of the staff made our stay one we will never forget. Everything went so smooth from the planning process to the day of. Nancy was amazing to work with; personable and flexible! She was there every step of the way. The complimentary breakfast with everyone's stay was the icing on the cake. Breakfast was delicious. The Inn at Manchester was everything we could have ever imagined our wedding weekend being.

    Kim, I still remember when your sister reached out to us for some information on weddings here. It was even before you and Mike were engaged. Even from my original conversations I was really hoping it would work out. Than I got to meet you, Mike and the rest of the family. When you booked with us it just made my day! I cannot believe it's been 6 months since y'all's wedding. Thank you for taking the time to write the review and I'm going to go on and thank you in advance for staying in touch ;) Cannot wait to have you both back for a visit! Sending you all lots of love, Nancy

  • If you're looking in the Manchester area, then look no further. The Inn at Manchester provides the perfect backdrop for a classic Vermont wedding. Plus, your guests will love being able to choose from a variety of hotels and inns within walking distance. Overall, we could not be happier with our choice. The family who own and operate this business go above and beyond to care for the property and make your wedding day special. Nancy Ess coordinated these efforts and is amazing to work with. She provided so much helpful advice on vendors and event planning as we led up to the big day. On the day of, she was the ultimate wedding coordinator: I trusted her fully and knew everything would run smoothly in her hands. It was also special to do everything in one place. The bridal suite at the Inn was beautiful and large enough to accommodate 10 family members + hair and makeup teams. The ceremony was set in a natural outdoor setting with a nearby babbling brook and arbor. The outdoor pa... Read more

    Liz, thank you for all of your kinds words and even more so for letting us be a part of such a special day and weekend! I was actually just looking over y'all's the pictures the other day and wishing we could go back and relive the weekend again. You and Slater are such an amazing couple and were so much fun to work with throughout the entire process. Please stay in touch and know you'll always have a home here in Manchester :) With lots of love, Nancy

  • We could not have hoped for or had a better experience hosting our wedding at the Inn at Manchester Celebration Barn. Nancy and the staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. We did not have any surprises in cost or day of emergencies. As long as you keep Nancy informed, she will make sure you have the best experience. We loved the intimate setting of our Ceremony being outside on the brook that runs behind the Inn. The guests were able to easily walk over to the Barn for a Cocktail hour and then 5 hours of dinner and dancing! The venue comfortably accommodated our 125 guests. It was also amazing having the whole Inn reserved for our Friends and Family. This made our day even more special having everyone so close. If we had to do it over 1000x, we would choose this venue and the people who made it possible. The picturesque scenery, family feeling, and ability to have a rustic wedding with modern amenities were unmatched. The location is extremely convenient to local att... Read more

    We wish you could do it 1000x over! Still cannot believe the day has come and gone! It was such a great weekend and we are very proud to have been a part of it. We just wish y'all weren't so far away! We know we'll be seeing you again before too long though! All our love, your Inn at Manchester Family

  • We hosted a rehearsal dinner for 92 people at the Celebration Barn in July. The Celebration barn was beautiful, we served cocktalls and hors d'oeuvres on the patio and dinner in the barn. What makes the Celebration barn special are the people. Nancy and her family made the evening special. I live in Colorado and was unable to visit the facility before the event, the attention to detail and the extra effort that the entire staff of the Inn at Manchester made for an absolutely perfect evening.

    responded with the following comments.

    We are always a little hesitant booking our barn site unseen. We knew after our first conversations that we were going to be a great match though. We had such a great time getting to be a part of a very special weekend and getting to know so many of your friends and family!

  • The venue is incredible and we fell in love with it as soon as we saw it. We had both our ceremony and reception here. Nancy and her team with great to work with and very helpful and accommodating. We were able to make our dream wedding a reality. The suites upstairs in the barn are HUGE and well worth the price alone. Seriously, check out the bathroom in the Bass Suite. The family was so friendly and I'm sure we will be coming back to stay another night or two :)

    Thank you so much Fern and Colton! We are very honored to have been able to be a part of y'all's day. We loved all of the details and things you put together from table arrangements to the awesome ceremony back drop. We cannot wait until we get to see y'all next! Don't let it be too long! Stay in touch. All our best, The Inn at Manchester Family

  • We chose the Inn at Manchester for our wedding venue and could not be more pleased! The family owned and run venue is beyond gorgeous, impeccably maintained, and in such a spectacular area - just outside of town where guests can hike, shop, dine, and have a great experience in addition to attending a wedding. As the bride, I can say that Nancy went over and above to make sure that our day was perfect! From arranging all of the seating exactly the way I wanted it, to bustling my wedding dress for me, and letting us soak in all that the Inn had to offer, she and her family were simply amazing. If you are looking for an upscale, classy, barn-style wedding in Vermont - look here first.

    Colleen, you and Dean are such an amazing couple surrounded by truly wonderful friends and family. Thank you so much for letting us be a part of this next step in your lives. We love the fact you're going to be up this way and hope we'll get to see you often. Stay in touch and know you always have a place here!
