Guestbook comments from the manager

We came up to enjoy a little family time with the new baby & the Irish Music Festival & Garlic Festival. The house was amazing-awesome to give everyone their own space & still let everyone enjoy each others company. Perfect distance from the festivals. We ran & biked every day. Great scenery, beautiful grounds-great for family photos. Everyone cannot wait to come up next year. Maybe the baby will even swim in the pond!

Beautiful home with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at the Pleasant Valley Estate for the weekend. The house is beautiful, clean and spacious. As soon as you enter the house you will be WOWed by view, which you can't get enough of it. The kitchen was great and we had so much fun cooking. Every room was spacious and clean with nice bathrooms.

Communication with the owner was easy. Vinny (the property manager) was so welcoming and responsive to our questions. I would highly recommend a stay at this place and will definitely go back soon.

The most beautiful home and property. Perfect for a group or family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I vacationed at the Pleasant Valley Estate for a fabulous five night stay. The house is the perfect place to get away from it all. Located on a beautiful piece of property, this home is spacious and clean with a grand kitchen, luxurious bathrooms, amazing porches and spectacular views. We had so much fun cooking, exploring the ponds, playing ping pong in the basement and wiffle ball in the yard. I highly recommend this estate for families and friends looking to vacation in VT. Before we left, the entire family was making plans to come back again next year. I can not wait!

Great house

  • 4 of 5

House is beautiful and spacious. It has a nice fireplace which is well stacked. House is on a rather large property and a lot of privacy. The only small issue is the stove. If you need to cook something it doesn't work all that well and takes forever for even water to boil (felt like we were in Colorado in high altitude). Otherwise house is just beautiful.

Peaceful, gracious, spacious, and clean - perfect stay in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our weekend stay at the estate was picture perfect. The property is secluded and expansive, with amazing views and plenty of room for activities. The house was exactly as described, and even more impressive than the photos. There was more than enough room for the ten of us to congregate on the porch and in the kitchen. Every room was meticulously clean and kitchens and bathrooms were well stocked.

Location was also perfect: A strenuous hike was only ten minutes drive, the cozy town of Bennington even closer.

Communication with the owner and caretaker was very easy and Vinny was very responsive to our questions. I would highly recommend a stay at the Country Estate.

Thanks again!

Beautiful House with Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous house was perfectly located just minutes from downtown. The views from this property were absolutely beautiful. The amenities were perfect, we had all we needed. The house included hairdryers, cooking supplies, cable, and internet. The floor plan was open and spacious. My husband and I stayed here for our wedding, including some of our bridal party. This house will hold some of the most special memories for us always.
