  • Introduction

    Call for reservations.

    The Pond House is nestled in the mountains just south of Woodstock. The Inn is surrounded by ten stone walled acres, and housed in an 1830's white cape. The pond is surrounded by trees and fields and is spring fed making it perfect for an afternoon swim or relaxing on a float with a good read.

    The Inn is cozy with a smattering of antiques, Orientals and touches of Laura Ashley here and there. The accommodations include three guest rooms with queen sized beds, down comforters and private baths with marble and European fixtures.

    The Boston Globe Says - "The Pond House is a mix of country and city that works magic."

    Awaken to apple french toast or a mushroom souffle accompanied by fresh fruit, yogurt, juices, cereals and freshly ground Starbuck's coffee. You needn't worry about finding a restaurant the dinner hour will surprise and please with different offerings nightly, these might include savory pumpkin ravioli with a rosemary cream infusion or perhaps lobster risotto after a salad of greens, gorgonzola and pears. Deserts include apple tart or pears baked with Marsala and white wine to mention a few. Dinner is included in the rate and that vegetarian options are available.
