The SpaceOur 1100 sq ft apartment is decorated with original art and antiques, is cool in the summer and warm and cozy in winter. (we have a portable air conditioner which I don't believe has ever been used). It features a complete kitchen, bedroom with queen bed and sleeping alcove with king bed. It also has a double sleep sofa. There is an enclosed brick courtyard for outdoor dining, a BBQ grill, and lots of books, games and videos. Guest AccessYou do not share this apartment with anyone else. We give you the key to your own ground floor entrance and leave you alone to enjoy the place and the pool, hot tub, and yard, Interaction with GuestsWe do not live here any more, but have a caretaker who is very easily reached. We are always available via cell, text or email with any and all questions or advice. The NeighborhoodRural setting on a main thoroughfare extremely convenient to Williamstown, Bennington and points west. Up at the top of the hill next store is a wonderful iconic farm, called appropriately enough "Hilltop Farm" belonging to the Gardner family. Marilyn loves visitors and you can buy eggs, raw milk, organic beef, honey and maple syrup there. The view across the valley from there is included in our photos. The Pownal Valley has been painted extensively for the past two centuries. Artists like Georgia O'Keefe and Norman Rockwell have created paintings here, as well as students and instructors from the Art Students League of NY. The latter maintained a summer boarding house across from our barn for many years. We are just 6 miles from either Bennington or Williamstown, Ma. The museums, Mass MoCA and the Clark, draw visitors from around the world. Bennington College, Williams College and Southern Vermont college are nearby. The numerous attractions in the Berkshires are nearby as well. Good food abounds, and here's my list of favorites: Mezze, US Rte 7, Williamstown MA - $$ farm to table. Excellent. Our place for occasions and celebrations. Your Belly's Deli, Pleasant St., Bennington Great sandwiches, salads and soups. Man of Kent, Middle of Nowhere, NY - pub food, great burgers.

The SpaceThis is our former home and is actually a portion of a 10,000 sf renovated barn complex which includes our former studio/gallery and caretaker's residence as well as amply areas for outdoor living with pool. This is a really unique space. The original barn was converted to retail in the 60's and included 7 stained glass windows rescued from an old church in Whitehall, NY. When we completely renovated we left these gorgeous windows alone. Our renovation added a fabulous kitchen and bathroom, deck with hot tub, courtyard and pool, dining room, family room and what we call the "bunkhouse room". We also added air conditioning and a gas fireplace for winter coziness. The photos will tell the story better than my words can ever do. Even though we had to list this rental as 1 bedroom, we can sleep other guests on a pull out sofa, and four bunk beds. Guests have the whole "apartment" to themselves. The deck, courtyard and entire lawn is also for your exclusive use. A caretaker lives elsewhere on the property but she has a full-time job and is single with a little dog. We are always available via cell, text or email with any and all questions or recommendations. Guest AccessLuggage can be offloaded through a ground floor entrance, but day to day access is through the balcony overlooking the courtyard. The balcony contains outdoor dining for six, a gas grill and the hot tub. The pool, hot tub, lawn and courtyard are for you to enjoy at any time of day or night. The deck box in the courtyard includes crochet and other outdoor games. Interaction with GuestsWe do not live here any more, but have a single caretaker living on the premises. We are always available via cell, text or email with any and all questions or advice.

The SpaceThe stone house is a historic mountain chapel lovingly rehabbed into a home. The post and beam ceiling, stained glass lighting, and many other unique attributes make it a really special experience for guests. I can easily sleep 4-10 people who are close friends. The king bed on the main floor has lush curtains around it to create additional privacy and coziness. Guest AccessYou will find various board games and toys, stationary to write letters, odd ball snacks, candy, staple ingredients, and a full spice rack to cook your own meals. There are yoga mats with a wide space to stretch out. There is a nice reading corner with a variety of books to browse and enjoy. In the summer you can enjoy the grill and outdoor patio, gardens, and porch. The house also has cable, a good size flatscreen TV, and wi-fi. Not to mention the warm fire place and wood.

    The SpaceThere is something for everyone at Karin’s Place–from the peaceful and tranquil gardens, gazebo and pool while the kids play on the pirate ship to a full-size movie screen with surround sound and enough books and games to last several lifetimes! Lie in a hammock and take in the sun or cross country ski on the 22 acres of land. The leaf peeping is also impossible to beat. The idea is imagination. Karin’s Place is a home. You can have your company/corporate meetings in the Grand Ballroom while having your down time in the spa. You can have your family reunion or Big Chill weekend with your 30 favorite family members and friends. The Grand Ballroom is also perfect for yoga, meditation, music making, and performances. Host an organized residency or retreat of any kind! This home is unique and grand. It was conceived by Jenny's father who was a bonafide eccentric. He lived a large life and was truly one-of-a-kind. There is no other home or inn in the area like Karin's Place. There are hotels. There are convention centers. There are inns and B&Bs. None has a 1600 square foot Grand Ballroom with a stage, a pirate ship in a sandbox, and a grown up sized swing. Our attention to detail and personal investment in your time at Karin's Place makes every visit distinctive and uniquely special. Karin’s Place is an 8,000 square-foot home nestled in the woods of Bennington, Vermont. Far enough off the road for solitude and listening to birds and animals rustling in the woods yet just four miles from the town of Bennington and nine miles from Williamstown, Massachusetts, Karin’s Place is in the middle of nowhere and close to somewhere. She can be your ultimate destination and/or she can be your resting ground after taking in theatre, music, museums, skiing, and more. The house sleeps up to 30 seven bedrooms, two sleeping lofts, 5 baths. Rent the entire house for 2 days, a week, or a month. (Discounts for a week or more and we do NOT charge the overage fees for children 12 and under.) Just come. Why wait? We look forward to meeting you! Our office is on site but Jenny and John live in their own home two miles away. A portion of your fee is donated to the Alzheimer's Association in the name of Jenny's mother, Karin. Guest AccessThe house is all yours. You receive the keys and Jenny gives a personalized tour upon arrival. Interaction with GuestsJenny's office is in the basement with a separate entrance and she reserves the option to swing by if necessary but she doesn't hover unless there is an event or there are a substantial number of underage guests for a "Big Chill" or retreat. (Families don't count. Parents can parent their own minors!!!). She and John live only two miles away. Guest interaction is really up to the guests. We don't intrude but we also don't make ourselves scarce when guests like more attention! Some guests prefer a lot of privacy and then Jenny's computer goes home with her. The NeighborhoodThe house is on a road with several apple orchards. The views are spectacular. The road is great for taking a walk or a run. Getting AroundThe closest airport is Albany International. You can also come via bus or train. Having a car is definitely recommended as the house is rather secluded but if you don't have wheels, we can discuss excursions and get you there. Other Things to NoteKarin's Place is close to a lot of culture. However she is also a perfect destination place if you want to arrive and not go anywhere until your visit is over. RENTAL RULES 1.Smoking tobacco is allowed outside only. Evidence of smoking cigarettes will result in forfeiture of security deposit. 2.People other than those in the Guest party set forth above may not stay overnight in the property.  Any other person in the property is the sole responsibility of Guest.  Guests are not allowed to exceed the occupancy limit agreed to above. 3.Guests should not create excessive noise at a level that disturbs neighbors; Outdoor neighborhood quiet hours are from 9:00 p.m. – 8:00 a.m. 4.Keep the property and all furnishings in good order. 5.Only use appliances for their intended uses. 6.Pets are permitted only with prior approval and the Pet Addendum must be completed.    7.Parking: Vehicles are to be parked in designated parking areas only. Parking on the road is not permitted. Any illegally parked cars are subject to towing; applicable fines/towing fees are the sole responsibility of the vehicle owner. There is plenty of parking on the property. 8.Housekeeping:  There is no daily housekeeping service. While linens and bath towels are included in the house, daily maid service is not included in the rental rate.  A separate agreement is possible and the Housekeeping Addendum must be completed. We do not permit towels or linens to be taken away from the house.  9.Garbage: Any garbage must be stowed in the proper garbage or recycling receptacle, located under the deck.   10.  Hot Tub and Sauna: No children under the age of five permitted in hot tubs at any time. No children under the age of 10 without adult supervision. (No young child should be allowed in a hot tub until they can stand on the bottom and have their head remain completely out of the water. Children who are big enough to be in a hot tub should not use it for more than five minutes at a time, especially at the maximum temperature of 104 degrees.) When using the hot tub, remember there is a certain health risk associated with this facility. Use at your own risk. We drain, sanitize, refill and replenish chemicals in all tubs prior to your arrival; therefore, it may not be warm until later that evening. [DO NOT STAND ON THE HOT TUB COVERS.  Hot tub covers are for insulation purposes and are not designed to support a person or persons.  They will break and you may be charged for replacement.] Remember when not using the hot tub, leave cover on so hot tub will stay warm. 11.   Fireplace: Please use responsibly. Open the flue and close it when it has cooled down. Wood is located underneath the deck.  (URL HIDDEN)12.   Water and Septic: The house is on a well and septic system. The mineral content in the water is high. During a drought, the well water may have an odor. There is a filter system but there is also spring water available. The septic system is very effective; however, it will clog up if improper material is flushed. DO NOT FLUSH anything other than toilet paper. No feminine products should be flushed at any time. If it is found that feminine products have been flushed and clog the septic system, you could be charged damages up to $3000. 13.   Storms: No refunds will be given for storms. Mountain roads can be curvy and steep. Gravel drives are well maintained; however, we highly recommend four-wheel drive and/or chains during the snow months and mud season. We do not refund due to road conditions. The driveway is well maintained and plowed, salted, and sanded whenever necessary.  14.   Utility Outages: A privately owned estate is similar to your own house, in that power outages, Internet outages, etc. are out of the control of the owner. We are all under the constraints and timelines of the local utility companies. If the internet goes out you will not be entitled to a partial refund on the rental if the outage is directly related to Fairpoint. And unfortunately, getting a service appointment on utility issues in our area can take up to 5 days or more. We ask that you be patient and not let an inconvenience like this disrupt the enjoyment of your vacation. We will, of course, make every effort possible to rectify the situation. 15.   Repairs: Occasionally things break or break down, like appliances, furniture, etc. Unlike a hotel, there is no 24/7 maintenance staff. You will need to notify the owner immediately of an appliance malfunction and the owner will work to have things repaired as quickly as possible. Repair of a dishwasher or washer can take up to a few days. Broken furniture may require replacement and can take a couple days, also, to do so. If you have difficulty reaching the owner in these situations (with the numbers provided), there is a list of local people to help posted on the property. 16.   Departure and Upkeep: As you know there is only a 5 -hour time period for owners to clean, transition, and ready a estate for the next rental. It is critical that you check-out on time so the cleaning staff/person can get started (remember that the owner is paying a cleaning person while they are waiting for a late check-out). It is important that you perform the check-out procedures asked of you in the information document provided. To the extent possible, please try to  “leave it as you found it”—at the very least, leave the property “tidy” or “broom clean”, clean out refrigerator, dispose of garbage, run dishwasher (if applicable), and make a list of any damaged items. If you have brought a pet with you will need to tidy up after him/her (including removal of dog feces from the yard). Late check-out, failure to perform check-out procedures or leaving Karin’s Place in an unclean state (requiring additional cleaning above typical cleaning time) will result in forfeiture of a portion or all of your deposit. Please do not strip or re-make the beds. Simply leave used beds unmade. If possible, please throw a load of towels in the washer. 17.    Liabilities and Amenities: We provide the use of cross-country skis, bicycles, pool, etc., as an added amenity to the property. You must take responsibility for your usage of these facilities. It is at your own risk that you use them. Extra care should be taken with children and these facilities. It is important that you know your own limitations when it comes to swimming, skiing, and biking and the proper safety equipment must be used with them (life preservers and helmets).(URL HIDDEN)18.   Rustic Terrain: You are visiting a rural, natural location with sometimes rustic terrain. Many properties have wooded pathways, gravel driveways, trails, rocky/ledgy waterfronts, etc. You should bring the proper footwear and use caution as you get to know the property. Trails can be “rooty”, shore rocks can be slippery, pathways can be uneven. Take care with your surroundings. 19.   Events: Events over and above the people contracted to stay in the house are permitted only with prior approval and the Event Contract must be completed. Events included (but are not limited to) are weddings, graduation parties, rehearsal dinners, concerts with anyone more in attendance than the guests, etc.) 20.   Alcohol: The laws of the state of Vermont must be followed when consuming alcohol. The Lessor shall not be liable if any accident occurs as a direct result of alcohol consumption.  21.   Perishables: Guests are welcome to any food or drink that has been left behind by prior guests. Food is only thrown away if it is no longer good. Please use the compost bin whenever possible. Please also recycle whenever possible.

The only heat is a wood stove... so please be hearty and ready to stoke a fire if the weather is cold! This is a retreat for couples, solo adventurers, and families.

        One- and two-day rentals left "orphaned" can be booked by contacting owner. Please inquire about ski discounts! They are limited and go fast! PLEASE INFORM OWNER if you have not read through this entire listing and the house manual ("Rules and Recommendations") containing important safety information. This is a unique property unlike any you've ever seen. Entrance is though a brick courtyard up a spiral staircase (alternate ground floor entry is available - please inquire in advance) to a huge balcony with hot tub, gas grill, and dining table for six; all covered by a seasonably-available awning to keep you dry during those summer downpours. This renovated 1938 dairy barn with its 1963 addition is a Vermont icon with 'rooms' cleverly defined throughout the spacious 2100 sq. ft. The kitchen, dining room, media room and bunk house are located in the original structure, and the living room, master bedroom, bathroom and laundry are in the 1963 addition with a huge barn door separating the two without impeding communication. The large kitchen was designed with a family of chefs in mind and flows into the Media Room, perfect for informal gatherings. Kitchen is fully stocked with all necessities for the usual culinary activities, and has a dishwasher, gas stove, refrigerator, free-standing freezer, microwave and a variety of smaller appliances. The kitchen flows into the media room with a flat screen TV and queen-sized sofa bed we enhance with a memory-foam topper. Please request use of this bed in advance. Around the corner is the dining room with normal seating for 6, expandable to 8. The gas grill is just a few steps away so you can still BBQ when its too cold to eat outdoors. A Vermont slate buffet invites you to plan serve-yourself meals, and the truly comfortable dining room armchairs encourage relaxing, after-dinner conversation. Next comes the bunk house with accommodations for four youngsters or teens. Adjustable Aerosnooz mattresses allow each sleeper to adjust the amount of firmness desired. There is also a game table for those who remember how to play games without batteries, and a couple of bean bag chairs for reading, texting or playing those games that do require batteries. Through the barn door is the accommodating living room with a gas log stove, big comfy furniture and soaring cathedral ceiling. If you're trying to break the TV habit there's a library with something for every taste, G-rated that is. The amazing feature of this wing is the seven floor-to-ceiling stained glass windows installed over 50 years ago. One has even been made into an emergency exit to bring the building up to 21st century safety-standards. Behind a partition created by a row of 9' high closets is the master bedroom with king bed and additional closets. A quiet work space in the bedroom is an ideal respite for a type A personality who can't leave it all at the office. The bathroom doubles as a laundry with large capacity, low-flo/low-energy machines. The shower is ample for two people, but tub enthusiasts will have to hit the deck and use the hot tub. Outdoors you can enjoy the large lawn area big enough for tournament croquet, swim in the seasonal 30' lap pool, or borrow our bikes (only if requested at time of reservation) for a stress-reducing ride around one of the nearby scenic loops. Stereo, cable TV, DVD and WIFI. Six miles to Williamstown, MA and 6 miles to Bennington, VT; both with scores of recreational, entertainment, culinary, and cultural venues. Dogs are permitted under certain circumstances -- please inquire -- at a rate of $15 per dog per day and an increase of $200 in the security deposit. (NOTE: HomeAway is not set up to handle this portion of the transaction.) There is a caretaker on the premises to take care of all your immediate needs. This was our own personal living space so you can be assured the renovation was designed for privacy and to optimize peace and quiet. The courtyard leads to your balcony entrance although there is a ground floor entrance for bringing in luggage. Generally the hot tub is not used in the summer even when people indicate they want to, and we drain it for cleaning. If you wish to use it, however, we are happy to oblige if you make your request in advance. We require peace and quiet from our guests and forbid gatherings and partying. Note to renters: 99% of our guests love staying here and return and recommend us to their friends. Fewer than 1% have a problem with the rough hune barn boards, the windows not designed to open, an occasional mouse "leave-behind", the proximity to a road (hey, where else would you put your barn), and any number of observations about a barn converted into a residence that maintains a barn-like flavor. So if these things bother you please do not rent from us! We depend on good reviews and a good rental season to cover the costs of owning this rural treasure.

Updated kitchen (2012) and furnishings in a classic farmhouse with tons of local history (and one of the biggest wood stoves seen in Southern Vermont) and a picturesque red barn right on site. Screen porch and open outdoor porch available to enjoy the fresh mountain air, a delicious grilled dinner, and the leafy surroundings. Savor your pancake breakfast with maple syrup from the property. Huddle up around a stone, wood-burning fireplace on cooler evenings. Great for couples looking to hide away, groups looking to reconnect, or families looking for room for kids to run.

        The SpaceThere is something for everyone at Karin’s Place–from the peaceful and tranquil gardens, gazebo and pool while the kids play on the pirate ship to a full-size movie screen with surround sound and enough books and games to last several lifetimes! Lie in a hammock and take in the sun or cross country ski on the 22 acres of land. The leaf peeping is also impossible to beat. The idea is imagination. Karin’s Place is a home. You can have your company/corporate meetings in the Grand Ballroom while having your down time in the spa. You can have your family reunion or Big Chill weekend with your 30 favorite family members and friends. The Grand Ballroom is also perfect for yoga, meditation, music making, and performances. Host an organized residency or retreat of any kind! This home is unique and grand. It was conceived by Jenny's father who was a bonafide eccentric. He lived a large life and was truly one-of-a-kind. There is no other home or inn in the area like Karin's Place. There are hotels. There are convention centers. There are inns and B&Bs. None has a 1600 square foot grand room with a stage, a pirate ship in a sandbox, and a grown up sized swing. Our attention to detail and personal investment in your time at Karin's Place makes every visit distinctive and uniquely special. Karin’s Place is an 8,000 square-foot home nestled in the woods of Bennington, Vermont. Far enough off the road for solitude and listening to birds and animals rustling in the woods yet just four miles from the town of Bennington and nine miles from Williamstown, Massachusetts, Karin’s Place is in the middle of nowhere and close to somewhere. She can be your ultimate destination and/or she can be your resting ground after taking in theatre, music, museums, skiing, and more. The house sleeps up to 26 in beds plus a futon and pullout with six bedrooms, two sleeping lofts, 4 1/2 baths. Rent the entire house for 2 days, a week, or a month. Just come. Why wait? We look forward to meeting you! Guest AccessYou will have access to all the entire house with the exception of the other bedrooms. Interaction with GuestsJenny's office is in the house and she is a regular presence unless guests rent the entire house. She and John live only two miles away. Guest interaction is really up to the guests. We don't intrude but we also don't make ourselves scarce when guests like more attention! Other Things to NoteBathrooms may be shared with other guests. The kitchen, spa, and living areas including the billiards room and Grand Ballroom may be shared with other guests in the house.
