Property Description

The romantic Reluctant Panther Inn & Restaurant is southern Vermont's newest small luxury hotel. With the completion of a major renovation, the inn and restaurant have been transformed into a chic boutique hotel offering elegant accommodations and fine dining in a sophisticated setting. Set in historic Manchester Village with views of Mount Equinox, the inn is next to great shopping and diverse four-season activities— and convenient from New York City (4½ hours), Hrtford (2½ hours, Albany (1 hour) and Boston (3½ hours.) All suites are newly refurbished with in-room fireplace (some with two), hydrotherapy spa tubs (most for two), luxurious linens and free property-wide high-speed wireless internet access. Some rooms offer exceptional views of Mount Equinox or a private entrance. On-site fine dining offers a sleek, sophisticated dining experience featuring regional cuisine and an award-winning wine list. Property has an appropriately-sized fitness center, business office with dedicated guest-accessible computer and internet access, and dedicated massage-therapy treatment room. In addition, walk to a world-class spa, golf, shopping and four-season activities, including hiking, biking and tennis. Drive one mile to Manchester Designer Outlets, the Southern Vermont Arts Center, galleries, live theatre and restaurants, or travel twenty minutes to skiing at Bromley or Stratton Mountain. Seasonal and romantic packages available. The Reluctant Panther provides an elegant site for small conferences, weddings and civil unions and we're happy to assist you in any way we can.
