The Equinox is located in Manchester Village VT.
The town, which was founded in 1761, is located @ 62 miles (75-80 minutes) from the well-connected Albany International Airport. The Resort does not have a shuttle service, but rental cars and other ground transportation options are available at the Albany Airport.
The Resort is located at the top of Main Street and provides an easy (downhill) walk into the main village. The walk back – not so easy (uphill) but great exercise. Take your time and enjoy the shops and attractions along the way.
The Resort: CLFMI returns to one of the most beautiful and iconic hotels in the region, The Equinox Resort. Summer Home to the family of Abraham Lincoln, the Equinox combines historic grandeur with modern comforts. The Resort is located in the quaint and delightful town of Manchester Village. CLFMI members can enjoy the nearby mountains like Stratton and Bromley, or indulge in a day of shopping at the nearby Manchester Outlets. The Equinox offers an amazing array of onsite activities, including the Land Rover Experience Driving School, Orvis Fly Fishing and Shooting Schools, on-property golf course, and a fabulous spa.
Business casual is the universal attire for CLFMI Summer Meetings. Dress for the Thursday activity is casual. Daytime temperatures will be warm (low 80’s) but evenings in can be cool (50’s) so be sure to pack sweaters, sweat shirts, etc.
