Our daughter Criss chose to wed in Middlebury Vermont in January of this year. She and her intended Joel wished to make it a winter celebration for our families and in Middlebury so that the elder members of his Vermont family would not have to travel. So that our cozy family and very dear friends from Pennsylvania could spend time together in preparation for the blessed event, we engaged Jalna and David's beautiful Kingsley Mill Manor. The colorful photographs and detailed description on the website hardly did the Manor justice! It far exceeded our expectations in roominess, comfort, cleanliness, availability of activities and provisions, and especially beauty. From the generous welcome basket on the counter as we arrived to the huge Christmas tree especially decorated in Criss' wedding colors (yes, Jalna was sweet enough to ask what they were!) everything was wonderful. There was lots of room for everyone, the house was warm and comfortable everywhere (which says a great deal for the furnace because it was frigid that week) and there were plenty of supplies. Towels, sheets and sundry supplies were there making our stay so much easier. Located on a well maintained, wooded country lane, the house is charmingly decorated and has comfortable furniture. The owners were available if needed, but all of our needs were truly anticipated. There were even books and games in case of boredom, which there wasn't. The surrounding woods and steams were a nature lovers paradise. Even in the icy cold, the rushing mill stream behind the house could be heard adding to the charm. One family member has limited mobility, so the first floor bedroom and sitting room was especially helpful and entry into the home was also easy. For our guests there were nearby restaurants, the terrific shopping at Middlebury and many other locations, and a few even braved nearby ski slopes. The local folks were friendly and maps and directions readily available everywhere. Our time there was like coming home, with the warm familiarity of family. We are hoping to be fortunate enough to arrange another visit soon to perhaps enjoy a different Vermont season and to see what other treasures we find at Kingsley Manor Mill .
