READY TO MOVE IN PERMANENTLY!

  • 5 of 5
2 overworked, non stop on the go New Jerseyans who have never visited Vermont picked this cozy place due to being within in nice driving distance to Ben & Jerry's. We fell in love with Vermont and we fell in love with the Pondhouse. Ellen could not have been a more gracious host, the place was exactly as described and perfect for the 2 of us.
As foodies we were pleasantly surprised by not 1 but 3 wonderful restaurants right in the center of the tiny town! We were about an hour away from Burlington and the Waterbury area so the drives to visit these towns were just perfect and then to be able to come home to this peaceful place was a joy.
Thanks Ellen..we will definately be back!!!

WONDERFUL SKI LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This place was a wonderful, peaceful place to spend the night after a day on the slopes. I cannot speak to the area much since all I did was ski and then ski some more but the pond house is well maintained, modern and well equipped. Windows surround you while inside which allows for a natural light wake up call. Away from the chatter of the downtown that often comes with ski lodging so if you are one that craves the apreski you will have to drive a few short miles to get there, but if you are just looking for some well earned rest then it is perfect. I will definitely be back for skiing next year.

BEATS A HOTEL ROOM ANY DAY!

  • 5 of 5
Amazing views of the mountains from literally every window! Comfy bed, elegant yet comfortable furniture, a well-stocked kitchen, a gas stove for ambiance, the list goes on and on.....

Ellen has thought of everything- wifi, a cord to plug your ipod into the stereo.... She is a wonderful host!

You will not want to leave! I am surprised this place is not booked every night of the year! We will be back. Thanks, Ellen!

SIMPLY AWESOME

  • 5 of 5
Very nice space, clean, full of light, peaceful, like being home with all the necessities and none of the clutter, deer tracks everywhere(though somehow I never saw one!). Perfect mix of privacy and attention from owner. Skiing, walks, xc skiing, nearby. I will make a point to come back and would recommend it to friends/family. I was looking for a place for time to myself so I wasn't interested in nightlife/restaurants etc - so don't know about activities or attractions in the area.

EXCELLENT

  • 5 of 5
In vacation rental reviews we always appreciate when someone gives both the pros and the cons of a location. Just the words, "It's great!" or "The owners are wonderful " doesn't actually give me a sense of the place. We like to know the downside as well as the upside of a location. And when we review vacation rentals we always like to let new arrivals know what to expect. However, with Pond house there was absolutely nothing that even came close to a downside. It is actually so much better than the write-up…it's actually off the chart better. The photos don't even begin to show you how splendid this location is. It was a gloomy overcast day when we arrived so we were astonished when we walked into the space and everything felt so light and bright. There are HUGE windows that even on an overcast day make the space seem light and uplifting. Out the windows is a serene pond and a luscious view of the far mountain in the background.
We had planned on spending our days photographing the colorful landscapes but the spaciousness and the understated elegant design of this space made it difficult to leave every day. We felt embraced by this space. The kitchen is well equipped. The design feels like it's right out of Pottery Barn or Ballad Design. It felt so cozy in front of the gas flames at night.
