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 Stratton Mountain Area

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.

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!

Beautiful Home & Land

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! We came to ski Stratton a few days and it rained most of the time. However we still had a great getaway, the house was clean, well maintained and close to everything. Our dog didn't want to leave, she had a blast exploring around the pond and running in the fields. Lisa was so easy to work with, we hope to return next year!

Wonderful Vermont Home - Tons of Character

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 5 year old son and I stayed for 3 nights (boston terrier too). We skied each day at Stratton - the proximity to the mountain is great. What a wonderful home, full of charm and well furnished. Our son loved the personal touches in the home as well as the grounds and old barn. Great space outside for kids and dogs. We wished we had brought our skates for the pond. We have rented many houses in the Mt. Snow/Stratton area over the years and this was our favorite. Working with Lisa is a breeze and everything is very simple when it comes to arrival and departure. Very little to do and the house is well stocked which is a nice plus...more than one roll of toilet paper waiting for you like you sometimes find ;-). This house and its contents are a real treasure. It may not be for all but if you appreciate craftsmanship, character and charm it is right up your alley. The master suite upstairs is quite spacious and the downstairs bedrooms are good sized. The downstairs full bath is large as well. We would definitely rent this house again for skiing...must be beautiful in summer too.

P.S. - Perhaps the biggest hit for our son was the laundry chute!

Perfect NYC Escape

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this beautiful home from mid-Jan to mid-Feb. While the skiing conditions at nearby Stratton (~10-15 minute easy drive) weren't great due to lack of snow, we loved coming up every weekend because of this house. We brought our two dogs and they loved being able to run around outside - the home has a long private driveway and plenty of private property, so no risk of cars.

The house itself is much more spacious than the pictures would suggest, yet it gives off a very cozy feel. We found everything to be well stocked and the beds comfortable.

The owner Lisa was very accommodating and always prompt with replies if we ever had questions. She was also able to help arrange dog walking during the day while we went skiing.

We will definitely be back!

Great place to hiking trails nearby

  • 5 of 5

Two primary conditions in looking for a vacation home in Vermont in the fall were country charm with modern amenities, and open space for dogs to run around. This home greatly exceeded our expectations.

The views from the home brought us peace and tranquility looking out onto the woods, the field, or the pond. The Jenn-Air gas range was a treat to use, and the kitchen was well stocked with basic necessities. The house was cozy and comfortable and wonderfully quiet.

We enjoyed walking out the front door down to the road that followed the river and continuing on that (dead end) road to a park. We discovered the trail in the park connected to other trails and a park that follow the river for many more miles. Most times on these trails we had the place to ourselves.

As much as the house is nicely located off the beaten path, it is situated not far by car to restaurants, quaint villages, and many more beautiful hiking trails (from flatlander to highlander). It was amazing to visit the Orvis flagship store in the nearby town of Manchester. The two Vermont Country Stores were not too far away.

We'll be sure to bring our bicycles the next time so we can cover more ground. The dogs (and us) can't wait to return.
