About Jalna Southwick or David Southwick
Jalna and David met later in life in 2003. We were married in 2008. Our choice was to live up north at David's place and turn the house where Jalna raised her family into Kingsley Mill Manor. It's our favorite place to vacation. Our passion is to continue working on the Manor to make it ever more comfortable as a vacation rental. Recently we turned an attic into a beautiful master bedroom suite with 2 person Jacuzzi and a view from room of waterfall and mountains. Our current goal is to live on the property so we may be nearby yet completely separate from the vacation rental. The covid pandemic changed our lives, in a positive way. We decided to lockdown here at Kingsley and used the three months to renovate and paint. For a long time we’ve contemplated moving to the property in a manner that would not interfere with the vacation rental. What we came up with is to create an efficiency apartment in the spacious basement, which was never part of the vacation rental. We created a separate entry and parking from the main house, and have soundproofed it to the state of the art. We do travel and have family in the area, so will not always be on site, but most of the time we will be available here for any questions, to offer suggestions, and quickly solve any problems. The main importance in us living close is that it allows for more thorough cleaning of the vacation rental between guests in this time of pandemic. It’s been our fortune to have had zero covid infections among our extended family and friends and so we have not been exposed at any time. Vermont is perhaps the one state with the least infections and most careful opening of all. Our vacation rental is private enough to be completely isolated from the pandemic during your stay. Vermont has such a low infection rate that even if you go out every day or night, there is little risk of being exposed to infection.

Why Jalna Southwick or David Southwick chose Salisbury
Kingsley Mill Manor has location, location, location. It's very private with no visible neighbors, yet a quarter mile from the village. A river runs through the property with two gorgeous swimming areas and a waterfall. Behind Kingsley the land is owned by the Middlebury Land Trust so will remain undeveloped. A trail runs from our back door to Lake Dunmore. This trail is part of the VAST system of snowmobile/cross country skiing trails that spans Vermont. It's also a gorgeous hike. The house is large, comfortable, with a long history. It is the perfect setup for a vacation rental, for family reunions, for ski teams, organizational meetings, weddings and just plain fun.
What makes this House unique
One of the features of the property that I fell in love with was the foot bridge over the pond and above the falls. Walk across for multiple trails to old mill foundations and cross country ski trails in the winter
