About the Host, Melissa
I've been a professional songwriter in New York City for 20 years ever since I graduated from Brown University in 1991, but I've recently come home to Manchester, Vermont to run the magnificent Wilburton Inn with my dad and my brother Max (who gave up his job teaching at Harvard to run it with me!) Our parents owned the inn for the past 27 years but our mom very, very sadly passed away last winter. So we are honored to continue her legacy of personal hospitality and sharing our love of Vermont with new friends and travelers. We have the best social life ever because of all of our interesting guests that come to our rental homes and inn every week. I still live in Spring Street in Soho every other week, but my heart is now in Manchester VT and I can't wait to come back every weekend and every other week. Come join me and my King Charles Cavalier puppy, Jetson! We really look forward to meeting you!
The Wilburton Inn is a majestic hill top mansion and 30 acre estate with 8 different private vacation homes. Vermont is a four-season vacation spot - full of sports, arts, culture, and discount designer shopping. What can be better? Please come and visit us!
