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!

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.

Beautiful country home!

This property is beautiful and was perfect for our family getaway. The property is expansive and had plenty of room for our kids to run and explore. The caretaker was very kind and ensured that we had everything we needed. The home is well-equipped.

Pleasant Valley Estate is a slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We came for five days with our family of 6. One of our sons had soccer training in Bennington so the house was perfectly located. From the minute we arrived the kids were obsessed with catching (and releasing) frogs in the pond, and exploring the scenic property.

Situated on 200+ beautiful acres the views never got dull. Each morning we enjoyed the views of expansive rolling hills, ponds as we sipped our coffee from the back porch.

House is in amazing shape, looks brand new. Super comfy beds and top of the line renovated bathrooms . Expansive kitchen with high end appliances, stocked with pans, cooking accessories, pretty much anything you could want/need!

Basement with ping pong for all to enjoy, TVs in most bedrooms and good Wifi.

About 30 minutes to Manchester, Bromley so tons to do - shopping, hiking, river rafting down the battenkill. Bennington Mounment 10 min away for history buffs. Major food shopping 10 min.

Justine and Stephanie were wonderful to deal with, as was Vinny. We can't wait to come back!!

Relaxing Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We used the main house, cottage, and efficiency for our girls' weekend. Each of us was able to have our own room. It had large spaces, inside and out, where we could gather, as well as plenty of space to be alone. The property is beautiful and conducive to relaxing, enjoying nature, or being active. We were pleasantly surprised to find our one co-worker taking advantage of the piano. The property is spacious and well-maintained. The owner was very concerned about our comfort and enjoyment, as was shown in the texts and phone call. We enjoyed our short stay immensely and cannot wait for our next girls' weekend. We would highly recommend this property for a weekend getaway or a longer stay.

Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5

I am a bit late to review this property. Stayed here last year. Property is well maintained and location of the property is really amazing. My family had real good time. We played Cricket with soft ball in backyard and had pizza lunch party outside. Wish we could have stayed a bit more. Overall experience was really memorable and cost was worth it.

Will be contacting Property owner again for sure this year again :)

Thanks,

Sid
