Resting on 1,300 acres under the shadow of Vermont's Green Mountains in the quaint village of Manchester, Vermont, The Equinox Golf Resort & Spa blends historic charm with a bounty of modern comforts. Following a spirited round of golf, a visit to the Land Rover Experience Driving School, Orvis fly-fishing, or a day at our award-winning spa and pool, replenish at one of four exquisite dining venues, including the storied Marsh Tavern. Retire to a richly furnished room replete with thoughtful amenities in one of four buildings, each with its own allure. All rooms are equipped with High Speed Internet Access, signature Spa bath essentials, and other thoughtful amenities.
Since opening in 1769, The Equinox Golf Resort & Spa is perhaps the best witness to the well documented history of Manchester. In its early days, the town was almost exclusively known as a playground for the rich and famous, with the Equinox as its distinguished centerpiece. The hotel is still the epicenter of this elegant and affluent village. The Equinox Golf Club is within steps of the hotel and its marble sidewalks. Everything in Manchester Village is well manicured and pleasing to the eye, including several very impressive inns and dining establishments. The Southern Vermont Arts Center is also a Manchester landmark and is more than worthy of a visit. Shopping is a popular activity in Manchester, and guests of the Equinox are invited to browse area boutiques or stroll through crafts and antique stores. Head over to the Manchester Center, where 40 designer outlet shops wait to be explored just one mile from our Southern Vermont hotel. While Manchester is rightfully celebrated as a spectacular New England vacation getaway for skiers and snowboarders, fantastic summer activities abound. Guests can select from mountain biking, horseback riding, hiking, and much more. Grab a backpack and explore 2,900 acres of woodlands, meadows, ponds, and streams in Merck Forest. Ride in a paddleboat or canoe along Emerald Lake or Lake Shaftsbury for stunning views from the water. Walk or jog in the early morning while the breathtaking sunrise stretches over the surrounding mountains.
