Overview

A homey, four-star stay at a boutique New England retreat surrounded by scenic mountain vistas

The Lowdown

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.
Good to know
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.

Rooms

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. 

Dining

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. 

Location

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.

Prom Night
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Stayed here for one night, May 10th, and found out they were hosting a high school prom that evening. Natural immediate reaction was what you would expect. But we were assured, “Vermont private school kids is nothing to worry about......”. This turned out to be true. We barely heard them, only when they were waiting outside to leave for the evening as our window faced the entrance.

This is a great hotel in a great location. The rooms and hotel are tastefully done save for a little dust we saw on nightstand and bathroom fan. Service with a smile from the friendly staff we encountered.

Do dine at The Copper Grouse downstairs, great meals and bartenders.

I recommend this place and would stay here again.

Genuine Hospitality!
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Truly a fantastic expererience. Rooms as well as common areas were very comfortable and offered an experience of what you would want from a small resort setting. Enjoyed playing games on the porch with my wife as well as participating in the hotel's hospitality hour. Although I did not bring my dogs (this time), I enjoyed a few casual freindly encounters with some fo the four legged guests. All in all, a very nice short getaway for my wife and me.
