Why Molly Perkins chose Manchester Center
This cottage is part of Battenkill Farm, originally a Morgan horse farm long ago. Battenkill Farm has been owned by the Perkins family and the Orvis Company for over 40 years. All the other buildings on the farm are private residences. The cottage is known as Brook Trout Cottage and is just across the road from the famous Battenkill River. Permission to Fly fish on the River may be granted from the Orvis Company Store located just 2 or so miles away.
What makes this Cottage unique
Lovely country setting for walking or bicycling. Hiking up to the Hildene Estate located down the road and up the hill.

Loved everything about this cute cottage. The views surrounding the house are soothing and relaxing. The kitchen has everything you need. Like others said the stairs are steep and you need to be careful coming down as one side is open. Bathroom is small but serves its purpose. Super close to Manchester center and the slopes are nearby (20-30 minutes by car). Would book again!
And adorable little cottage conveniently located and well amended. We was perfect for a family of 4!
A nice little property and we were there in October with lots of fall foliage. It is a busy street but a really nice view and nice little yard.
Very cute and well equipped cottage
We enjoyed our stay. Stairs not a problem. Only disadvantage is that main bedrooms are upstairs and bathroom is downstairs
Lovely and clean cottage. Too warm upstairs for comfortable August sleeping.
Brook Trout Cottage is as lovely as can be. Very clean and thoughtfully appointed. Beautiful views. Peaceful.
It clearly states in the description that there are no air conditioners (and that real Vermonters don't need them). But despite the fans provided, we found the upstairs uncomfortably warm for sleeping on these muggy August nights.
Comfortable cottage with beautiful views of rolling hills and mountains. Quiet, and close to town. Exactly what I was looking for.
Adorable! Well equipped with essentials. Perfect for my family of four. Loved that it is pet friendly.
