                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: What can I say? We are creatives who love the beauty and serenity of this place. We spent our adult lives in Fairfield County CT with a 5-year sabbatical in Seattle, and looked for a location that would not only fulfill our space requirements but meet our emotional needs as well. We share our environment with Rooney McDuff a spirited, way-too-loving golden retriever, and Ritz and Riley, two coal black cats who think they're dogs. We've always loved one-of-a-kind places, and this definitely fits the bill.

                      Why the Owner Chose Bennington:
                      Well, this is more than a vacation rental; it's an entire lifestyle. Pownal Valley is probably one of the most beautiful in all of Vermont. Rolling limestone mountains might not make for double black diamond ski runs but they do make for fabulous vistas. Our views are without challenge anywhere throughout New England. Our complex is convenient to Route 7 but our guests ALL say the property feels totally private and peaceful. We moved here full-time in January of 2007. In a portion of our barn complex we operated a commercial photo studio and a craft gallery which and later added a homemade ice cream service. Recent events have caused us to move back to Connecticut where we can be helpful to our family and pursue some other interests. In the meantime you can continue to enjoy our beautiful Vermont property.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      This is all about peace and relaxation; and not a partying place by any stretch. For our rental guests: Private courtyard for grilling and dining, fire pit for ghost stories and s'mores, lap pool for a leisurely swim or a good workout. AND a large flat, safe yard for kids and dogs to play! Oh, did I mention there are about a million things to do around here?
