The Kimpton brand's first Vermont property, the Taconic Hotel offers quintessential New England charm on four acres in scenic Manchester. Named after the neighbouring Taconic Mountain range, the property offers a great base from which to take in the "old-world, old-money elegance" (Frommer's) of this picturesque southern Vermont town.

Lauded by the Boston Globe as "a modern take on the grand inns of the early 20th century," the property boasts a main inn complete with a wraparound porch and a fire pit, along with three private cottages, a fitness centre, an outdoor seasonal heated pool (open mid-May through October) and the on-site Copper Grouse restaurant "that's so good it attracts as many locals as guests" (NY Daily News). 

The restaurant "celebrates the culinary treasures of Vermont" (Boston Globe) with dishes like cheddar ale soup, cider-brined chicken and maple creme brulee. Order room service, sit out on the restaurant's porch or sip local brews at the bar, lauded by Men's Journal as one of the 20 Best Hotel Bars in America.

Cozy rooms pull design inspiration from the natural surrounds, with soothing earth tones and pops of plaid. Outdoor enthusiasts will especially appreciate the in-room yoga mats and hand-crafted wooden walking sticks. Be sure to pick up a trek map at the front desk, which leads guests to "secret swimming holes, hidden waterfalls and off-the-beaten-track snowshoe trails" (Boston Globe).

The usual Kimpton perks also await on site, with free coffee and tea served in the mornings and a nightly wine hour with complimentary nibbles dished out to guests in the evenings. Enjoy your wine in the hotel's cozy library, which works in partnership with Manchester's local bookstore to display and highlight the best new reads. 

For further exploring afield, the Lincoln Family Home, Lye Brook Falls and the Manchester Designer Outlets are all within a 10-minute drive.

While a new and well kept hotel, the high quality facilities are not matched by the over the top service you would expect. Also, possibly because of the fact we booked through a Travelzoo special, the selection of rooms were the worse they had to offer. Both we were offered we on first level, on back of hotel looking at trash dumpsters and next to loading dock. We were nightly serenaded to the staff dragging out trash and heard the morning deliveries.
