The Retail Therapy Package
Where: The Inn at Manchester, 3967 Main Street, Manchester, Vermont
When: Available through December 22, 2016
How much: Starting at $165 per night

The easiest way to avoid the hordes of holiday shoppers at the mall is to purchase presents online. But where’s the magic in that? This year, the Inn at Manchester is offering a solution: a Retail Therapy package to help you do your holiday shopping up north. The cozy hotel in ever-quaint Manchester, Vermont, is a hop, skip, and a jump from the Manchester Designer Outlets—a bargain shopper’s haven that includes a Marimekko outlet, a J. Crew Factory, a Michael Kors outlet, and more.

The Retail Therapy package starts at $165 per night and offers a two nights’ stay, daily breakfast, a discount coupon book to the outlets, a snack to go, and a full stock of wrapping essentials. Guests also receive much-needed shopping fuel in the form of a cocktail and a snack at the Inn’s living room-like pub. The 21-room Inn at Manchester is family owned, and is known for its luxurious linens, abundant fireplaces, and historic 19th-century charm.
