The rooms are well appointed, although there is no in-room coffee machine (meh -- the kitchen quickly sends up an excellent pot of fresh coffee). Spacious baths. Good location. Some reviewers have complained about the dogs. OK, I'm allergic to dogs. That's what Benadryl and...More
I've given the Taconic a 3 star review which some might view generous and others harsh but I am judging it against other Kimptons and the high service expected when staying at one.

My family spent our vacation at the Taconic Hotel in Manchester VT last week. What a wonderful time we had. The hotel is beautiful. The rooms aren't huge, but they are decorated very nicely and they are clean and comfortable. There is a wine hour...More

The hotel itself is quite charming and we got a special deal through Expedia so overall the package was ok. Had we paid the full rate this would have been seriously overpriced.
While the premises are beautiful, staff and service need a heavy dose of...More

I recommend you drop your bags at the hotel and continue on to ski at Bromley. Full disclosure--I grew up skiing at Bromley and prefer it to the crowds and more intense skiers at Stratton. It offers variety and has more challenging terrain is on the east side which is more limited than at Stratton but the mountain is easy to access and a shorter drive, less costly ticket than at Stratton. If you have two days to ski, I suggest you start at Bromley the day you drive up and then head to Stratton the next day if you want to compare. Stratton has a long access road to get to the base.

Thank you for considering staying with us at Kimpton Taconic Hotel. We have two options for golf in the area. The Equinox Country Club is located just a hop, skip and a jump from our front door. You could walk there from here or take your car as it's less than a 3 minute drive.
We also secured a unique partnership with the Manchester Country Club. This is a private course. This course is located just 3 miles from the hotel. To find out more about either option please do not hesitate to reach out to us directly at 802-362-0147.

Dear Future Guest,
There are many different indoor/non-skier activities in the area. Of course there is Outlet shopping but there are also several great boutique stores that include Vermont made products. The Northshire Bookstore is a staple when traveling to the area.
Visit HiIdene, the Robert Todd Lincoln Estate which includes tours of the historic estate, a restored Pullman's car and their goat farm. Southern Vermont Arts Center displays national and local artist in many mediums. Learn to blow glass at Manchester Hot Glass. All these and many more unique experiences are within a mile of the hotel.
If you want to be outdoors but don't like to ski, strap on some snowshoes, hitch a ride on a sleigh, ride to your hearts content on a snowmobile or take a leisurely hike to the base of Mount Equinox located right behind the hotel.
Hope to see you soon.
