Perfect father/son getaway
Karin's place was the perfect place to hold our trip. The house was spacious (our party had 20 people), clean and conveniently located. Everything we could have possibly needed was in the house and the pool table, av room, pool and fire pit provided many memories. Jenny was a pleasure to deal with, always available for a pre-trip call or a quick question while on property. Highly, highly recommend!
Thank you for the kind words. It was my pleasure to host you and your friends and sons. I'm so sad they had to miss their graduations and I hope that the weekend at KP helped lessen the blow. I with them all successful futures and that things open up so you can send them off to their next ventures! Please come back again!
Great place! Better than advertised!
Amazing property! Jenny was extremely helpful and quick to answer all our questions! Definitely would go back!
Thank you for choosing Karin's Place!
Board Game Cabin Success
Karin's place was warm and friendly despite being the largest house I've ever rented. The Host, Jenny, was very attentive and gave a full tour to our first arrivals. She text checked in once during out long weekend stay. We had 20 adults and 3 kids and all the accompanying dogs to go along with us. One bedroom was directly next to the TV room and only really a nook surrounded by privacy screens. That couple had to move, but there was plenty of space for them to do so. While staying here there are pamphlets and business cards for all sorts of entertainment in the area, we didn't use any but I could see them being a benefit. Would love to stay at Karin's place again.
Thank you for your nice description. I hope the grand room was great for setting up all the board games! I'm so glad you all had a nice time and I certainly hope to have you back at Karin's Place in the future.
A tranquil Escape
Karen’s place is an awesome property! In a tranquil location tucked away in the woods you are able to experience the magic of Karen’s Place. It has all the amenities you could possibly need or want and will be perfect for any and every getaway. It was the perfect location for my family reunion! Jenny is awesome and her communication and willingness to help is unmatched! Thanks for every thing Jenny !
It was my absolute please to host you and your family. I especially enjoyed meeting your mom who reminded me of my late mother-in-law. I feel like she was there to say hello through your mom and that made my day! Hope to see you all again!
Weekend of Fun!
We had a fantastic time at Karin’s place! The house is unreal and has so much to offer! Our group of 15 fit so comfortably and had a blast! There were so many highlights from the fantastic ballroom where we danced the night away to the little details Jenny put in to making our stay memorable! I would absolutely recommend this location to anyone looking for a fun time away with friends and family!
Thank you so much for choosing Karin's Place for your celebration. You were a delightful group and I especially loved your creativity with Demetrius, the tiger! #whereisthetiger
About Jenny Dewar
Jenny and John met in 1991 while performing in Jesus Christ Superstar in Germany. John was in the pit playing his trombone and Jenny was onstage kicking her legs while making eyes at the pit. Jenny began stage managing in the mid-90s while John continued to play his horn in any number of bands, ensembles, records, and films. They both worked on Broadway for a number of years before deciding it was time to live in the country. (During that time, they managed to get married.) In 2006, they made a quick and sudden decision to sell their home in Astoria, Queens and see what Vermont living was all about. They never looked back. After Robert and Karin (Jenny’s parents) passed away, Jenny’s father entrusted her to continue his legacy of hosting people from far and wide in his home. Robert and Karin originally built the house in 1994 as a weekend retreat. They so loved it here that they sold their apartment in New York City, moved up here full time, and then built a massive addition in 2010. Karin was wheelchair bound, so the house was designed for her accessibility. Ramps, a handicapped shower, and no multi-leveling on the first floor make it easy to get around via wheelchair. In New York, any number of people had keys to their home. It was always full of various guests, rehearsing a musical/operetta, giving a concert, or just hanging out because they had nowhere else to go for Thanksgiving. The addition to Karin’s Place was built in the same vein. Build it and they will come… The bedrooms are named after light operas that Karin and Robert appeared in together during their lives. They were active in the Village Light Opera Group the entire 30 years they lived in New York City. Their first date was a trip to the opera! Sadly, both Robert and Karin passed away earlier than they should have. Jenny and John promised that they would continue to keep the house full and busy. Thus, Karin’s Place was born and Jenny and John have been enjoying a variety of guests ever since.
Jenny Dewar purchased this Estate in 2015
Why Jenny Dewar chose Bennington
This property was passed on to Jenny by her parents so that she would save it and keep it full of people.
What makes this Estate unique
The beauty of this home is the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere but having arts, culture, and towns just a few miles away. There are unexpected treasures everywhere you turn. It is a home. A grand home, but a home. Everyone is comfortable and all you need to bring is food and your bodies!
