About Lisa Bennett Stokes

This property has been in our family for decades. My brother was a great carpenter and artist and built this house with his own hands. It has many unique custom features and is a special place for our family and friends. We use the house whenever it is not rented. Skiing at Stratton / Magic in the winter or enjoying biking, hiking, swimming in the quarries and Farmer's Markets in the summer months.

Lisa Bennett Stokes purchased this house in 2007

Why Lisa Bennett Stokes chose Vermont

This wonderful Vermont house and property is secluded, peaceful and relaxing yet close to everything, with Great Skiing, Golf, Hiking, Biking, and Manchester a short 20 minute drive. There is something for all seasons and a great change of pace from busy lives in NYC or Philadelphia.

What makes this house unique

Reading a book by the fire, shoveling off the pond with 4 friends to play pond hockey, cooking big meals with friends. Taking long walks with the dogs.

Perfect in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful. It is well equipped, tastefully decorated, comfortably furnished, perfectly sited, and designed well for gatherings of family and friends. It met all of our needs and enabled our family to enjoy one another's company in ways that have become too rare as we have spread across the country. We look forward to returning for other occasions.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at his property for a long ski weekend at Stratton. Plenty of room for the 5 of us. Very homey. Great location-only 10 minutes to the base lodge at Stratton. Bedrooms downstairs good size and the master is huge. Nice large kitchen with new appliances and well stocked. Fireplace was wonderful after a day of skiing (-20 wind chill). Highly recommend!

Great house, accommodating host

  • 5 of 5

We reserved this house for a ski weekend, but due to issues on our side we were not able to stay at the house. Throughout the process though Lisa was very accommodating and responsive.

Will definitely rent this house next time we are at Stratton!

Stay in Londonberry Home

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about our stay in this beautiful home in a serene, picturesque setting! I didn't want to leave! Just what we needed after sightseeing all day to come home to a rustic farmhouse that looked and felt like home! The pond and back porch was so beautiful and peaceful.

Fireplace amazing! Bed was comfortable, kitchen well stocked, etc... I did give the houseplants a drink as they looked very parched.... :) Perfect time of year to visit too with the fall foliage peaking! I'd recommend staying here anytime!
