What can I say? We are creatives who love the beauty and serenity of this place. We spent our adult lives in Fairfield County CT with a 5-year sabbatical in Seattle, and looked for a location that would not only fulfill our space requirements but meet our emotional needs as well. We share our environment with Rooney McDuff a spirited, way-too-loving golden retriever, and Ritz and Riley, two coal black cats who think they're dogs. We've always loved one-of-a-kind places, and this definitely fits the bill.

Pat purchased this apartment in 2006

Well, this is more than a vacation rental; it's an entire lifestyle. Pownal Valley is probably one of the most beautiful in all of Vermont. Rolling limestone mountains might not make for double black diamond ski runs but they do make for fabulous vistas. Our views are without challenge anywhere throughout New England. Our complex is convenient to Route 7 but our guests ALL say the property feels totally private and peaceful.

We moved here full-time in January of 2007. In a portion of our barn complex we operated a commercial photo studio and a craft gallery which and later added a homemade ice cream service. Recent events have caused us to move back to Connecticut where we can be helpful to our family and pursue some other interests. In the meantime you can continue to enjoy our beautiful Vermont property.

This is all about peace and relaxation; and not a partying place by any stretch. For our rental guests: Private courtyard for grilling and dining, fire pit for ghost stories and s'mores, lap pool for a leisurely swim or a good workout, hot tub for a satisfying de-stressing. AND a large flat, safe yard for kids and dogs to play!

Oh, did I mention there are about a million things to do around here?

RELAXING WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
We came to Bennington for the US Snow Shoe Nationals, and came in late Friday night which Pat and Gabe were very accommodating. The place was amazing. Enough space to relax and let our 23 month old run around and play. The hot tub was great after the race on Saturday with a perfect view of the sunset.

Definitely bookmarking this place and will be back to spend another weekend in Vermont!

Owner's Response: Thank you folks for the kind note you left and for leaving the place in such immaculate condition. I'm glad you found everything you needed for you cooking and enjoyment pleasure. We look forward to hosting you again in the future. We are becoming known for our great Nordic skiing and snowshoeing. Add to that nearby ice skating and snowmobiling, and Alpine skiing just 25 minutes away and we offer a literal winter playground experience.

ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME

  • 4 of 5
We were very comfortable in this cozy apartment with all the comforts of home. It was perfect for our small family of three and wonderful that we could bring our dog too. We skied each day and cooked in every night. Enjoyed the hot tub too! Immaculate with fresh towels and sheets - a great place to stay to enjoy the Berkshires and southern Vermont.

HAD AN EXCELLENT TIME!

  • 5 of 5
This place was awesome! Extremely nice people renting it out. They were very compatible with payment plans and they even were willing to help us out with driving! 10 out of 10 for me! I made a video of our adventure and you can see some of the house in it!

Owner's Response: We remember what it's like when only one person is old enough to drive the rental car, but the group can't agree on a single activity. We were glad to help out with the transportation. We take every opportunity to introduce more people to the wonderful skiing at Jiminey Peak. Scott, you five were model guests and should be an example for other owners who don't want to rent to college students. You left the place in better shape than most families! And Rooney loved the snow ball wars in the yard, a rare event for our dog. Thanks for the great review.

SCENIC RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
What a great rental! Pat and Gabe were extremely welcoming when we first arrived. They were at the main house during our stay, but did not intrude on us in any way. The apartment is cute and very well decorated with eclectic art and furniture. Bathroom is large with updated fixtures. Well stocked kitchen with appliances, dishware and little spices and condiments you may forget. We skied at Jiminy Peak both days, which is only a short 20 minute drive away. It was very relaxing to climb into the warm hot tub after a long day on the slopes! Great apartment. Would definitely rent again and recommend.

Owner's Response: So glad it worked out well for you. We thin Jiminey Peak is a treasure especially the night skiing and so much less crowded. We look forward to welcoming you next year! - Pat

FALL FOLIAGE

  • 5 of 5
We took a chance on VRBO & this rental and were not disappointed. Located 6 miles south of Bennington, the accomodations were quite nice, well appointed and complete for a pleasant and care free stay. The Owners Pat & Gabe were delightful.

GREAT FRIENDS RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
The description and pictures of the property are very accurate so there were no surprises, only that the rental was in a ground-level basement of the larger property (owner's residence and shop above). The courtyard with a table provided an outdoor dinner space for we 3 teacher girlfriends who were escaping for the weekend. We enjoyed the on site ice cream store and took a dip in the pool in the evening. The full kitchen went mostly unused by us, but it would be very convenient for a family or longer stays. The owners pointed us in the right direction for a breathtaking view for the sunset, though you could see the rolling mountains from their property as well. They have a friendly cat and dog but were very considerate about keeping his pets away if we wanted, but we enjoyed them.

This place offered all the privacy we wanted to just get away for the weekend, while still being able to drive 10 minutes to Bennington to catch dinner and go to a diner the next morning. The dip in the pool was so refreshing and we all enjoyed shopping in their store the next morning. Amazingly beautiful views.

Notes:
We just hosted the US Snowshoeing Championships here in Bennington. If you've never given snowshoeing a try you might want to head up to Prospect Mountain and give it a try! It's where a lot of Olympic hopefuls in Nordic Skiing go to practice, too.
