Our group of 6 adults, 3 kids and one baby had a fantastic time on our 5-day stay at Pond Hill Place. There are far too many wonderful features to list, but here are a few of the highlights: The owners were above-and-beyond in their responsiveness and friendliness in making us feel at home. This house is baby and kid-friendly and the ample safe lawn areas to romp in made for some delightful afternoons. The pond, with its swimming dock and paddle boat was a dream -- we spent hours there every day! A well-manicured estate with gorgeous landscaping, native blueberries, and beautiful woods were a serene setting. The kitchen was very well designed, well-lit and provisioned with the necessities and then some. A large porch sports a grill, 6-10 person table, and a nice view. We ate outside every night and got to even see some impressive wildlife. Downstairs, the relaxing living room seats at least 10 for after-dinner lounging, with many media options, including fast WiFi. As for the bedrooms, there were plenty of combinations to suit our needs, all with comfortable mattresses, fans with lights, good shades, extra blankets and well-stocked linens. At the rear, the hot-tub was a plus, as was the outdoor shower. In the dining room, the table has 2 leaves which could seat almost 12. We found the entryway nicely arranged with benches, shelves and hooks. Although the property itself is so peaceful and quiet we didn't have much urge to venture out, there is ready access to hiking and other mountain-based activities, as well as only 15-20 minutes to shops and restaurants in Rutland. In sum, from the well-maintained private drive, to the beautiful and tastefully-decorated home, this is a rental we will return to and recommend.
