Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in the Pondhouse for two nights. We warmly greeted by the owner Ellen who made us feel very welcome. De loft is very spacious and clean and nicely decorated. It has many windows and it has a view to die for. From the house you have an easy access into Stowe. We absolutely loved our stay!!!

Outstanding value, natural wonders, and solitude

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I booked the Pondhouse in early October in order to enjoy the fall season at its best. We were both left speechless by the natural beauty of Vermont and suprised by the lack of urban sprawl we normally see while on vacation. The small towns surrounding this property are unspoiled with plenty of attractions.

Ellen has created a world class property for guests to relax within a beautiful natural setting. AND she chooses to keep the nightly rate very reasonable even though we feel other owners would be tempted to charge more (for such clean, spacious, and comfortable accommodations). Not sure how to impress upon other potential guests just how rare it is to find the combination of low price and outstanding property features Ellen has created for all to enjoy...

The Pondhouse is located on a large parcel with great views of the surrounding forest, water features, and wildlife. No expense was spared during construction with expansive glass and 12-14' catherdal ceilings waiting for guests to enjoy. We loved it! To us it is a "cottage" that thinks it is an expansive estate house :-) We wish you the best during your stay and believe you will really enjoy it. We would not hesitate to book again! . .

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I first stayed at The Pond House when visiting my daughter who was doing an art residency in the area. We had no idea what we would find since she made all the arrangements. We LOVED this place! We returned later in the year for another weekend getaway just because we loved it there - and loved the lovely town. Great restaurant in town - and relaxing by the pond was just spectacular! The owner, Ellen, is fabulous too! You won't be disappointed. Checking availability so my parents can go!

Relaxing and rejuvenating stay!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in Ellen's beautiful apartment on our honeymoon and it was everything we were looking for! The view, interior decor, gardens, pond and privacy were all exactly to our taste. We were close enough to town that we could enjoy the local restaurants and wine tastings. Ellen had stocked the kitchen with all the necessities and everything worked well. She was a warm and helpful hostess and we felt welcome and comfortable. We left refreshed and peaceful from our time enjoying this restful nook in Vermont. I hope we can return from time to time for a get-a-way vacation! Thank you, Ellen!

It was a very nice week-end in northern Vermont and the place was perfect. Only minus point it was too short.

In one word; perfect

  • 5 of 5
It rained hard every minute we were there (almost) and we still had a perfect time! The apartment is really cozy, decorated with love and sobriety, the bed is comfortable, the kitchen very useful, the living room area very welcoming. Windows all around give you the impression of being in nature even if you are inside because of bad weather. I can imagine that fair weather would make the place even better, if possible. Close to Jeffersonville where you can find all you need to prepare a meal and close to Snugglers Notch for hiking and visiting. Our host Ellen was welcoming and helpful. I would recommend this place to all my friends ! I hope to go back.
