This 1,100-acre complex in historic Manchester Village dates to 1769, when its Marsh Tavern opened. Today there are 17 structures of various vintages in six different architectural styles. Extensive renovations in the 1990s included restoration of the hotel and a Rees Jones reconstruction of the Walter Travis 18-hole golf course. Toward the end of that period they also began erecting bubbles over their three newly rebuilt hard courts during the winter months in order to provide year-round play, with instruction available from USPTA pro Seth Gabriel, who has a very strong local reputation. There are 183 guests rooms altogether—20 of them suites—a spa and fitness center, indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools, a British School of Falconry, a Land Rover driving school, and in winter snowshoeing, ice skating, and cross-country skiing.
Accommodations consist of 183 guest rooms, suites, and 1-to-3-bedroom townhouses. Rates generally higher on weekends. Those cited below do not include taxes, gratuities, or the resort fee.
