The Pond House Bed and Breakfast

Reviewed 29 August 2008

We were touring New England and stayed here for a few days. We were really comfortable here, breakfasts were good and the dinner we had was excellent, as was the wine! Gretel was very helpful and gave us good advice re eating out and places to visit.

The situation was peaceful, set in beautfiul countryside.

Advice - take Gretel's advice re directions!

Reviewed 21 March 2008

I stayed at the Pond House this past winter while visiting the Woodstock area for the weekend. Overall, it was a pleasant stay in a good location - near skiing and other things to do. The decor was charming and very New England. The room was spacious and stocked with interesting reading materials. The bed was comfy with fresh linens. The innkeeper is a great cook with delicious homemade meals - breakfast, and dinner on Sat. nights by reservations.

There is some room for improvement at the inn. While the food was good, portions were small for your average man. There didn't seem to be any flexibility here either.

Also, access to the inn can be a bit tricky in bad weather. It is located on a steep dirt road. When we arrived, both the driveway and the sidewalk to enter the house were quite icey. We felt the inn keeper was not very sensitive to guests trying to manuever with luggage. We would have appreciated some warning about the road and salt at the entrances.

Additionally, payment must be in cash or check, including a deposit. It's a small place, so understandable, but can be inconvenient to some guests. The price is good for the area, so this can be overlooked.

Overall, it was a pleasant stay, but I probably wouldn't go out of my way to stay here again.
