There is not enough wonderful things I can say about the Pond House, inside and out. The views are spectacular, the layout warm and airy all at the same time. We spent our time skiiing at Smuggs (literally down the road) and just really relaxing together. This could not have been more perfect. And then you add in Ellen, who is the quintessential host, there if you need her but you would not know she even lives nearby unless you need her. And quite a beautiful spirit. I was raised in VT and now live elsewhere. This was a place that let me feel I was "back home."
