About Doug Walsh

Our family purchased this home in 2007 for our love of the outdoors. We currently live in the Philadelphia metro area and use the home regularly so it is part of our lives instead of simply an investment. We believe that sharing our home to people with like interests will help build your love of the area as well.

Why Doug Walsh chose Bondville

This homes unique location in the center of the quaint town of Bondville is unmatched. Walk next door to the Stones Lodge for dinner or a drink. Stroll in town to grab a coffee then over to the Winhall Market to grab the nights dinner. Relaxing back deck with Adirondack chairs make for a perfect Vermont evening. When you need the fun. Gale Meadows Lake is but a mile down the road. Skiing, snowshoeing, XC skiing, golf and the ski village of Stratton are only three miles away. Beautiful town of Manchester only 10 minutes away with shopping, dining and sites.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The unique hand cut beams in the home make it feel very warm. The large stone gas fireplace provides the perfect amount of charm on a snowy winters night. Comfortable and cozy is why we love this home.

Cozy House and Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have enjoyed our trip more. The house was the perfect setting for a ski trip getaway, with all the feel of a cozy Vermont lodge you could want. Will definitely look to book this place again for our next Vermont adventure.

Great stay for a family wedding

  • 5 of 5

Even better than expected. Great location. It became the family focal point during the wedding week end. Marathon ping pong games and whiffle ball in the back yard. We swam in the river and floated on noodles. Great time at the Red Fox Inn with perfect weather. The house absorbed all of us beautifully. We loved it!!!

Thank you Doug for making it available to us.

Great, warm ski house with easy access to Stratton

  • 5 of 5

Family had a great stay at the house. Doug was very accommodating when we decided to come up a day early to beat the frigid temps and storm. Even though it reached -30 wind chill, the house was warm with plenty of hot water. The snow was the best in 30 years - great skiing.

This property was lovely. Plenty of room. The house was clean and comfortable. the market right up the street was great to have. Very close to Stratton Mountain. We had some non skiers in or group so being close to Manchester was a nice touch. We would definatly stay there again. My only suggestion is to put TV's in the bedrooms. We had a wonderful weekend !!

Owner's Response: So Glad you had a great time and thank you for the kind words. The market is exactly what you would want in VT and sure does make things easier. I certainly will take the advice of TV's in the rooms to heart. It is something that would add a nice touch. You should also consider summer. With the lakes, waterfalls and mountains it is absolutely beautiful. We hope to see you again. Thank you,

Great house as promised!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this lodge that is right at the base of the Stratton access road. The house is even better than the pictures - lots of space, clean and comfortable. Around the corner from a solid market, and the owner Doug was very responsive and a pleasure to work with, we are really glad he was able to squeeze us in. Everyone said they'd want to stay here again. Thanks for everything, Doug!

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Friday and left on a Sunday night. The owner was extremely flexible with check-in and check-out times and always responded promptly via email, phone or text. We really enjoyed our stay- the house was bigger than we thought, spacious and very clean. We highly recommend this cozy house for a large group of people, especially if you plan on skiing. Stratton mountain is about a 5 minute drive. We had a great time!
