About the owner: I am honored to have a home that allows me to share the beauty of Vermont. I lived in Vermont since 1974 take great pride in our cultural heritage and environment. If you are a lover of nature and culture--or desire a quiet, private get-away, this place will offer you many options. As an advid biker, skier, kayaker and all-around general outdoor enthusiast, I'd be honored to share the magic of the region.
Why the Owner Chose Jeffersonville, Cambridge, VT, USA:
The Pondhouse has been called magical and enchanted. I've travelled and lived all over the world and served in the Peace Corps. To own a home (that actually has two homes) and allows me to host people from all over the world is a unique privilege. Now that I have offered The Pondhouse to others and I read the reviews and the notes that are left behind, I know that others cherish their time here and create special memories. I have been meeting the nicest people who love the magic of Vermont!
The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
The Pondhouse has been described many ways: "The "home" as well as the outside surroundings with the gardens and the mountains in the background are spectacular, peaceful and pristine." "Perfect weekend getaway to escape the city and find true peace and quiet. The house was tucked away and all you could hear were birds and frogs." "The Pondhouse felt like a home away from home." "If you are looking for a convenient, well- appointed, lovely spot to get away from it all, this is your place. The photos can't possibly do it justice." "It is a perfect place for a couples getaway, great space for cooking and enjoying a meal and each other." "It's peaceful with beautiful surroundings, yet conveniently located just down the road from the bustle at Smuggler's Notch." Come discover the magic for yourself!
