Make yourself at home at Taconic, a welcoming new Kimpton hotel sitting in the Vermont countryside. Traditional architecture, a grand front porch and rustic, earthy tones make this getaway homey both inside and out. You’ll feel just like family once you check in, thanks to thoughtful extras like complimentary coffee and tea in the living room, daily hosted wine hours and a yoga mat in your room – which happens to be a calming oasis in general. The plush furnishings, luxury bedding and cottage-style details create a friendly space and a perfect base.
Even the restaurant, the Copper Grouse, is an inviting spot. Unpretentious American classics are served in a warm and thoughtful tavern that make you and your fellow diners feel like community. And the sense of community extends beyond Taconic, too, with area farms providing ingredients for the restaurant’s rustic menu and kind locals who teach art classes, run shops and lead horse-drawn sleigh rides in the snow. Let the Taconic staff, ever eager to help, point you to the best of each.

Please note that a $20 daily resort fee, plus $2 in applicable taxes, includes, but is not limited, to valet and self-parking, morning coffee and tea services, Wi-Fi, use of the 24-hour fitness room, the “Forgot It, We’ve Got It” program and seasonal, limited-availability bikes.
Comforting earth tones, plush bedding, curated local artwork – the guest rooms at Taconic are the perfect reflection of the surrounding Vermont countryside’s style of laid-back luxury. They’re a welcoming, relaxing escape after a day exploring Manchester. Choose from the Deluxe King, with courtyard views, or the Premier Queen/Queen, with mountain views, plus two queen beds.
The Copper Grouse Restaurant & Bar is the soul of Vermont cuisine. Classic regional fare is served in a chic tavern, emphasizing ingredients from local farms. With breakfast, brunch and dinner menus, this rustic eatery lets you enjoy its plates throughout the day, and fried oysters, cheddar-ale soup and cider-brined half chicken are just a taste of the hearty dishes you can expect from the popular gathering spot. American wines, craft-brewed beers and a variety of spirits are also available, for you to end your day with a toast.
Manchester epitomizes Vermont charm. Rustic covered bridges, apple orchards, cow pastures, white steeples – small-town beauty is around every corner, waiting to be admired. A destination for all the seasons, this Vermont escape also offers plenty of activities to keep you busy, like skiing, fly-fishing, golfing, antiquing, kayaking and hiking. Enjoy award-winning live music, browse local art galleries, try a tasting at a craft brewery, or visit a dairy farm. Your stay in this quaint Vermont town will be as laid-back or adventurous as you choose.
How to Get There
The decor is beautiful, pure New England - no heavy rugs or furniture. Simple and contemporary with tradition. The staff is welcoming, very helpful and unassumingly polite. The generous and wonderfully designed New England style outdoor porch
provides a perfect setting for breakfast, lunch or dinner enjoying the pure Vermont
air. Delicious maple sausage and eggs over was the perfect breakfast and they
even have steamed almond milk for my coffee (half the calories of milk). I have stayed at other Kimpton in the U.S. but this is by far, the most comfortable, beautiful and well-run of them all.
I would highly recommend a visit to Kimpton Taconic in beautiful Manchester, Vermont
Perfect size hotel. Very nice pool. Rooms are very comfortable, and have a fireplace. The only thing missing from the rooms is a coffee and tea maker.
Nice touch at 5 pm, daily wine and snacks.
Cooper grouse on site restaurant is very good.
The first thing that strikes you as you approach the property is the wide, wraparound porch with rocking chairs on one side and tables for dining on the other. Instantly inviting! Welcoming and friendly staff, lovely grounds with a small, outdoor lap pool. Top quality amenities in the guest rooms. Our only negative is that the room was a tad small given the rate we were being charged. Mountains on either side, walking distance to a few restaurants and a short drive into town make the location of the Taconic Hotel perfect.
