    The Royal Treatment

    On our anniversary trip, we stayed in the lovely Innkeeper's cottage with beautiful mountain views. At the Wilburton, pups and their parents are treated like royalty. Cavaliers King Charles Spaniels even get to stay for free. Our pup, Serafina met her Prince Charming in the adorable pup concierge, Jetson. Jetson is very friendly and just loves belly rubs. Everyone at the Wilburton was so friendly and welcoming. My family had a great time exploring the area and just relaxing by the fire in the large living area. If you're ever in Vermont, check out the Wilburton Inn and you'll get to meet Jetson too. We can't wait to visit there again for the fall foliage season.

    Fabulous stay at this comfortable and quite unique inn. Innkeeper Melissa, doggy concierge Jetson and all the staff were delightful, welcoming and couldn't do enough to make us feel at home. Breakfasts were delicious and substantial, and the villa rooms are just perfect if you bring your dogs as the outside is only steps away. In fact, this has to be the most pet friendly place that we have ever stayed at. The Wilburton is a treasure, and we will certainly return!

    Happiness for Happy!

    Our rescue dog made his first foray on vacation with us staying at the Wilburton Inn. He loved it, beyond anything we could have imagined. He played with Jetson, the resident dog concierge and met other dogs staying on the property. It was a joy for all of us. The Wilburton is just such a welcoming place. The innkeepers are beyond welcoming, the adopt you the minute you walk in the door. Happy's happiness and comfort made the rest of our family's stay so much more fun. Hiking the hills nearby with the dog was just so much fun for all of us. Looking forward to going back.

    Wonderful and welcoming!

    We chose to come to the Inn for a birthday weekend, cross country skiing and visiting the New England villages at Christmas time - and we chose a place that accepted dogs. We didn’t actually know that we had stumbled across a special dog slumber party weekend! Our dog Loki is an Australian Shepherd - very lively, young and a bit wild, and we had no idea we would be walking in on a group of Cavaliers with Christmas sweaters on!! Loki wasn’t quite what everyone was expecting but they didn’t miss a beat! We absolutely loved the hospitality and the incredible social history associated with the Inn, the fascinating Creativity Museum and the owners ideas about the healing powers of creativity ( I bought three books from him for my classes!) as well as the deep powder snow and gorgeous setting. My seven year old son was very upset to leave and decided he wants to live there forever! Thank you for making my weekend so special.

    Awesome Experience

    This was our first trip to Vermont and our first extended road trip with our 60lb lab mix Rocky. Melissa, Jetson, and the entire staff made us feel like we've known them all or our lives. They treated Rocky like a guest pampering him with snacks and pets, and welcoming him basically everywhere except other guest's private rooms. The inn and grounds are spectacular, yet inviting and cozy. The daily breakfast is dog friendly, truly a wonderful meal, and the view from the room brings the surrounding mountains almost to your table. We stayed in Strawberry Hill Villa, which has several private bedrooms/baths with a common living room, laundry, and kitchen. It was perfect for our five day stay! We also enjoyed exploring Manchester, hiking Mt Olga and Equinox Pond, and visiting Hildene. In short, we can't wait to return. The Wilburton Inn is more than dog friendly, it's dog heaven.

    A wonderful Inn in Manchester VT

    Melissa and Jetson (her Cavalier King Charles spaniel) provide an excellent Inn with wonderful rooms, a great breakfast and lead a fantastic staff to look after you.

    The location has beautiful views and the outside art objects are a treat. We had previously stayed at the Equinox but much prefer the Wilburton and have already booked a return for next October!!

    Wilburton Christmas Doggie Party

    My husband and I have 2 dogs, and while we love them like crazy, we haven't really brought them many places with us. One of our dogs is quite anxious and it has always been easier to take her to places she is familiar with. Our best friends have been to the Wilburton 3 times this year with their King Charles Cavalier and talked us into booking on this weekend of the christmas party. I really can't say enough about the time that we had. It was amazing! For the dogs and the humans too! Our room was great, but especially because it adjoined to our friend's room, which was essentially an apartment. The dogs felt right at home, and right outside the door was a gorgeous hillside for them to run around on. It even magically started to snow while they were playing. Our anxious dog did so well! She had a great time, showed interest in meeting other dogs without baring her teeth, and was welcomed by everyone. There was a professional dog photographer who captured the most magical photos. Melissa, the Innkeeper, is a wonder. In the evening we returned to the main house for a "slumber party" and had cocoa and sang carols by the fireplace. It really warmed my heart and did feel reminiscent of my favorite Christmas movie, White Christmas. Highly recommend!!! Oh, and the food was great too:)

    The Wilburton Runs On Love

    My boyfriend, our Golden Retriever, Handsome and I stayed at The Wilburton Inn for three nights staying in the Equinox Villa with outstanding views of the mountains. We were treated by the innkeepers as if they had known us already for a long time. Breakfast is served in The Billard Room in the Main House, it is delicious, and fresh. I highly recommend the pancakes! Our room was fantastic with a jetted tub and a bed we found ourselves asking how they got it to be so comfortable. The grounds are close to town and also perfectly located to feel as if you are no where near town, it also has so much history that the innkeepers have great knowledge of. The grounds have also plenty of room for your four legged friends that you just can't leave home! I was so thrilled that this beautiful place is pet friendly. You can tell that The Wilburton Inn runs on love, I can’t wait to come back!

    A Must Stay In Vermont

    There is such a deep and rich amount of feeling I discovered while staying at the Wilburton Inn for a few days with my girlfriend Stephanie and Golden Retriever, Handsome. Our accommodations were warm and inviting, with a captivating view of the the Equinox Mountainside. Every staff member I encountered was helpful and so friendly! Breakfast each morning in the billiard hall was delicious to say the least, and I even found myself at home whilst walking into the kitchen in the dead of night to get a glass of milk. Handsome, our Golden, we were so happy to bring with us and to see how loving the staff were to dogs really meant a lot to us. The grounds have plenty of space for your pups! To put it simply, I feel as though my loves and I experienced the best Vermont has to offer thanks to The Wilburton Inn!

    Night in Manchester, VT

    It was so fun to be able to bring my dog with me for an overnight stay in the lovely inn. We were able to drive right up to the room and stay and play. The grounds are a great place for us both to get some fresh air and take some time away from the city to enjoy nature. The owners and staff were also so welcoming and helpful. Judy (my dog) and I had a fabulous time.

    A great weekend with our dog

    My wife and I visited the Wilburton Inn with our bulldog this December for a long weekend away from Boston. We had a great time staying in Manchester. The Wilburton is a great mix of stunning architecture, beautiful views, and hospitality. Owner, Melissa, met us when we arrived at the Wilburton Inn and was very warm and accommodating throughout our stay. It's great that we could bring our dog with us -- there is a lot of open space on the grounds, and we let him run off leash as we explored the acreage. The natural setting is great, and there are some really interesting sculptures and art everywhere. Our room was large, comfortable, and clean, and breakfast was great too! We also enjoyed being in Manchester. We've never been to VT before, and Manchester had everything from antique shops to high-end shopping, and many good restaurants as well. We'll definitely return!
