About Janice Martiak

My parents bought this property 15 years ago and we have enjoyed many vacations and holidays with friends and family in this house. It is such a warm and inviting place, yet large enough to find your own quiet nook. The kitchen was recently renovated, but we have kept the original charm of the house that we all liked so much. We have gotten to know our neighbors and some people in the community and it really is always an enjoyable stay as we reconnect with people in the community.

This is the first year we will be renting the home as my parents are spending more of their time in Florida. We are happy to answer any questions you have about the house or the area.

Janice Martiak purchased this house in 1999

Why Janice Martiak chose Manchester

This house really offers something for everyone. If you want to get out and about, there are a number of things to do within a half hour of the house or you can drive 4 miles to the center of town. If you are more of a homebody, you can sit on the deck an relax in the summer or sit by the fire inside in the winter. The kids will find plenty to do inside and out. We always send them down to the garage for a ping pong tournament.


Nearest Golf
4 Miles
Car: necessary

Manchester is a quaint town at the base of Mount Equinox and near Bromley, Stratton Mountain and Okemo mountains. Enjoy prime skiing, outdoor sports, golf, top ranked Spas & Resorts, restaurants, lakes (swimming) and shopping.

Take a stroll down Three Maple Drive, or take the Pew Forest Tail not even a quarter mile from the house and start enjoying the outdoors. This area really has something for everyone. Even the one person in the family who is happy to sit by the fire and read a book.

Manchester is known for Designer Outlet Shopping but the town has far more to offer. There is the riley rink center for ice skating, the Hildene house for a step back in history and worth a visit in the summer for it's beautiful gardens and vistas and in the winter for the holiday decorations, the Orvis store for the outdoorsman in the family and a great park for the kids. There are a number of events taking place thruoghout the year.

The dining in Manchester and the surrounding area is excellent. Some of our favorites are The Perfect Wife (casual upstairs, fine dining down stairs), Ye Olde Tavern, The Reluctant Panther (fine dining), The Spiral Press Cafe (breakfast/lunch) and the Barrow House. There are SO many restaurants both new and old to try and there are many towns to visit. It's always fun to explore and find something new.

Manchester is approximately thirty minutes from Stratton Mountain Resort and about 15 minutes from Bromley ( a great family resort!) It is a beautiful setting if you just want to go for a drive and take in the scenery. If you do, take a ride to Weston to the VT Country store and on the way stop at Taylor farm. They make delicious cheese and if you have kids they will love to see all the animals running around.

There are so many things to do and I would recommend doing a little research before you go. As much as there is to do, one of my favorite things is being outside with the kids, sitting around the fire looking for shooting stars and counting satellites, watching the game in the living room, sitting in the kitchen with family and enjoying a glass of wine or getting a card game going in the dining room. Creating Memories. That's what it's all about.

We had an absolutely lovely time at this spacious home! Everything is just right- the house is slightly rustic, but the kitchen was large and well equipped. Ther rooms were generously proportioned and the beds comfortable. We had lovely weather at the end of June and had a chance to explore all that the Manchester area offers. We will hopefully return in the winter.

Great house, perfect for large group of friends with kids

  • 5 of 5

Great communication, easy to find location and close to both Stratton and Bromley. We had a group of 4 married couples who stayed in the house with a bunch of kids and the house was perfect. Close to town, close to skiing. Awesome family room with a fireplace and huge ceilings where we spent a lot of time and also a beautiful back yard where kids had a blast building a snowman and running around knocking down icicles. Well stocked kitchen. Fully recommend for anyone interested in staying in this house, you won't regret it.

Very Accommodating!

  • 4 of 5

With six adults and two children, this property was more than we expected. It had plenty of bathrooms and bedrooms for everyone (plus more room if we needed). The fully furnished kitchen was well utilized as was the dining room. The two girls loved the toys that were available for them to play with. Being from Texas, when we arrived, we immediately located the window units and installed them! They kept everything cool during our stay. The additional fans in the house were also much appreciated. The couple of minor "maintenance" issues we had were responded to quickly. This property was perfect for coming home each evening to family gathered in the living room for a wind down cocktail and room for the girls to play!

very nice house, clean and cabin like flair

  • 5 of 5

we enjoyed the surrounding area and the stay. The house has additional beds, which were not advertised but it was a nice surprised. The kids really enjoyed the loft above the living room. The stairs leading to it, felt a bit dangerous but nothing happened so it was all good.
