Mini Reunion at Pleasant Valley Road
The home and grounds are fantastic. We lucked out with the weather and were able to explore. The home is beautiful and everyone had their own space. Very beautifully furnished, kitchen has all the necessary equipment for a good meal. Bathrooms were to die for, large and great showers. All in all it was a wonderful time on Pleasant Valley Road. It is also centrally located.
Thank you for your lovely review. You were great guests and we would welcome you back anytime.
Perfect place for a family or friends' getaway!
We are four retired former college roommates who have gotten together once a year over the past decade or more. Of all the places we have stayed, the Pleasant Valley Estate house went to the top of the list as the best! The house was spacious, clean and stocked with everything you would need. The views from both the front and back porches were lovely…. just wish we were here for the fall foliage views! We barbecued and ate dinner on the porch overlooking the ponds. We also have to say how we appreciated Vinny’s (the caretaker) quick responses to any questions and problems we had. He also gave us an overview of the area and night sounds...and just as he said, we heard the the barred owls’ hooting calls. Visited the Bennington Pottery, the Old First Church and Robert Frost’s gravesite, the battle monument and the Bennington Museum, all just a ten minute drive from the house. We are all hoping to return soon! You will love it…we did!
Thanks for such a lovely review. We love to share our property with guests who really appreciate its beauty.
Beautiful property, well maintained
We loved our visit here. The house is beautiful and the views are stunning. Everything is well maintained, we could even swim in the pond! Every bedroom is spacious and gorgeous. Was very hard to leave!
Beautiful home with an amazing view
My friends and I stayed at the Pleasant Valley Estate for the weekend. The house is beautiful, clean and spacious. As soon as you enter the house you will be WOWed by view, which you can't get enough of it. The kitchen was great and we had so much fun cooking. Every room was spacious and clean with nice bathrooms.
Communication with the owner was easy. Vinny (the property manager) was so welcoming and responsive to our questions. I would highly recommend a stay at this place and will definitely go back soon.
Thanks for such a beautiful review. So happy you enjoyed your stay.
The most beautiful home and property. Perfect for a group or family vacation.
My family and I vacationed at the Pleasant Valley Estate for a fabulous five night stay. The house is the perfect place to get away from it all. Located on a beautiful piece of property, this home is spacious and clean with a grand kitchen, luxurious bathrooms, amazing porches and spectacular views. We had so much fun cooking, exploring the ponds, playing ping pong in the basement and wiffle ball in the yard. I highly recommend this estate for families and friends looking to vacation in VT. Before we left, the entire family was making plans to come back again next year. I can not wait!
