About Darcee Slack

I'm a native Vermonter who wanted to come back to her roots. I am still living in California but am a New England girl at heart so my husband and I decided to buy this unique old school house.

Darcee Slack purchased this house in 2016

Why Darcee Slack chose Island Pond

I have always been interested in purchasing a remodeled school house, I happened upon this property when the listing was only a few days old and called my agent and said, "This is the one".

What makes this house unique

The huge windows in the living room let in so much light, the kitchen is large with a rustic table that came over from the UK. There are 2 relaxing soaking tubs. Its very peaceful here.

Beautiful Antique Schoolhouse

This schoolhouse was nicely decorated, clean, and spacious! It is located extremely close to Island Pond and local camping spots, eateries, and scenic roads. It was a great find!

Relaxing get away

Comfy gathering, great home base for group of 5 with room for guests.

Nice large kitchen and living room.

One of the few places remaining in the USA where you can disconnect and just be.
