Over the last year I’ve been lucky enough to have visited Vermont, three times but to be honest winter is always my favorite time to visit.
There is something iconic about a New England Winter in Vermont. Maybe it’s the snowy ski slopes or the warm glow coming from the quaintest New England towns, it just gives me the chills.
After visiting Vermont two weeks ago, I received a lot of requests for a travel guide, so here it is! I’ve broken down my favorite neighborhoods, restaurants, cafes and activities in Manchester Vermont.
So let’s jump right in!
Manchester Village – quintessential charming New England winter village
Stratton Mountain – hit the slopes & enjoy some fun
Route 7A – magical mountain views of charming little New England towns.
Route 30 – Stone Valley Scenic Byway
Where to Eat:
Bistro Henry – OKAY IT’S MY FAVORITE! I love seafood and it’s a hard not life for me because most of my family members hate it. So I love Henry’s because it has a great seafood menu but also has amazing pasta, steak and salad options! Basically the best of both worlds for everyone. If you like seafood get the crab cakes & salmon; just thank me later!
Overall amazing food, a little more expensive but totally worth it!
The Perfect Wife Restaurant – Love this restaurant but be prepared for slow service! The food is really really good guys, and the menu has a little bit of everything so it’s a safe choice if you’re traveling with a large group of people. Basically it has a little something for everyone, oh & the atmosphere is great. It’s always packed with young adults and it’s a great place to go if you just want a drink and meet other ski goers.
Overall cute, charming and packed; but fun overall!
The Bench – What’s better than American comfort food? NOTHING! This is the perfect place to hit up after a long and tiring day on the slopes, rejuvenate those calories with some hot mac & cheese or a huge burger. I love comfort food and this place does it right!
Overall vibe = bring your boyfriend here, he’ll love it I promise!
Where to Grab a Latte:
Black Cap Coffee – I love visiting local cafes, no matter where I am. It’s the perfect way to get an understanding of the people in the local area. Also it’s an easy way to meet new people and bond over a common ground, coffee!
So if you just moved to the area or visiting Stowe alone, meet some new people & grab a latte. It’s a win win.
What to Do:
Obviously go skiing at Stratton Mountain Resort! If you are heading to Vermont during the winter month’s I would highly recommend planning a ski trip! Stratton Mountain is about thirty minutes from Manchester!
Visit Hidden, The Lincoln’s Family Home. You guys I love history, so this is a must for me. I went for the first time this past winter and loved it, I’m highly recommending this one.
I feel like Vermont is all about the R&R, so grab a group of girlfriends & head up to The Equinox, Golf Resort & Spa for a spa trip! I personally think it’s more fun in the winter and usually you can get a good steal deal, around this time of year.
Scenic New England Instagram Worthy Spot:
I would suggest going to the Manchester Village! & if you have a car and don’t mind driving, hop in the car and drive around.
Vermont is full of scenic routes, so you never know what you’ll stumble upon, I usually get my best instagram images this way!
& that’s a wrap! I hope this post inspires you to take a weekend for yourself and visit the best spots of Manchester Vermont! I’m always up to trying new places too, so if you have any Vermont suggestions, comment below.

Love Manchester! My family and I went up to Stratton for maybe 10 years and loved it there. Manchester is an adorable town with some great shops that popped up over the years.
