About the Property

1,000 sf Guest Residence, Pool, Private Entrance 1 BR + Den, Bath/laundry!

We are pleased to once again offer our ever-popular home-away-from-home, fully-appointed, secluded apartment with full kitchen, laundry and private entrance. Queen bedroom, king bed in large alcove off living room, and comfy (no kidding) double pull-out sofa in living room which also accommodates dining area. Full kitchen with dishwasher, microwave and all dishes, pots, etc. Entrance is through a heated mud room for skis and boots and all manner of sports gear. Bathroom with double shower, washer and dryer. Large closets, cable TV, VCR, DVD, stereo. Fenced in brick courtyard for outdoor grilling and dining, and pool in season.

Convenient to Williamstown, MA (6 miles) and to Bennington, VT (6 miles); both with scores of recreational, entertainment, culinary, and cultural venues. Many agritourism opportunities, farm-to-table dining, world class art galleries and cultural venues, superb hiking and river rafting and boating, top drawer theater festival, and regional theater, an authentic drive-in theater AND a destination diner.

Where else can you stay and choose to go to Saratoga Raceway one day, hear the Boston Symphony (or James Taylor) at Tanglewood the next, go white-water kayaking on the Battenkill after that, then see a Broadway touring company at Proctors one night and a first run production at the WTF the next, hike the AT the next day and maybe even the day after that (we have two access points) and then wrap it all up with a shopping spree at one of TWO premium outlet centers? There is so much to do here, if you spent the entire summer here you couldn't do it all.

Dog permitted under certain circumstances. Please request the Doggie Dos and Don'ts and tell us something about your pet!

Car: Necessary

This corner where MA, NY and VT come together is filled with every kind of activity imaginable - museums; cultural events including music, dance and theater performances; agritourism and farmer's markets; festivals and fairs of all kinds; sports including hiking at all ability levels, Alpine skiing, Nordic skiing, golf, snowmobiling, horseback riding, boating, swimming; shopping including being equidistant between TWO outlet malls and a huge antique and craft complex, fabulous restaurants, tours of wine-, cheese-, beer- and ice cream-making facilities, historic attractions, etc., etc., etc. We are partial to hiking and have yet to experience all the trails and taking our dog to all the swimming holes in this part of the state.


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. We've always loved one-of-a-kind places, and this definitely fits the bill.

Why the Owner Chose Pownal, VT, USA:
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 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, dining, ghost stories and s'mores, full-length 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?
