Oh Charlie. Such a good poser. What can I say. Charlie has become the star of our reviews. We have many guests come with their dogs. If you dog is well behaved and friendly - they are welcome! This photo was taken Oct. 12. The fall colors are incredible and have not even peaked yet!

GLAMPING, aka Glamour Camping
Available mid-April through November 1

Read just a few reviews and you quickly understand that the Pondhouse is truly an EXPERIENCE. It is a transformative, magical retreat. NOTE: the Pondhouse is not for everyone. No electricity. No walls (screened only). You will hear animals in the woods. The bathroom is a two minute. walk. No kitchen. No stove (but there is an outdoor fire pit). You take chances with the weather. We've had guests love a cozy rainy weekend and even book an extra day during 30 degree temperatures. It's GLAMPING, aka Glamour Camping! No groups over 4 people and no kids under 12. You are always welcome to write me to explain your situation - if it feels like a good fit I am willing to bend these rules once in a while.


Still interested? Read on. . .

You have use of a private, full bathroom, with shower, located in our studio building a two minute walk from the Pondhouse. There is also an Airbnb guest room in the studio that may be rented as well. It works great to book both the Pondhouse and this guest room - you can leave your stuff in the studio and keep the Pondhouse tranquil and serene! Happy to give discounts to rent both. Just ask.

There is a fire pit a few steps from your door. It’s stocked with paper and chopped wood (or chop your own), so you can make a fire to roast marshmallows, cook a whole meal, or just hang out and enjoy the feeling of camping.

Other amenities, including recycled paper plates and utensils, small fridge, electric teapot, coffee press, coffee and teas are provided for you in the studio.

Dogs are welcome, but MUST get along with other dogs. We love dogs and our dog Charlie is a fantastic host, will provide lots of love and affection, and is always happy to go for a walk with you. It you bring a dog, you may not leave it in the Pondhouse while you are gone.

CAUTION:
*No Wi-Fi or cell service in the pond house - come to unplug! (There is wifi and a land line you can use at the studio for emergencies)
*No nearby transit, and we are in the boonies, so you’ll need a car
*Planning this as a surprise? I strongly suggest that you KNOW that your partner will love this. I've seen a few surprises not work very well. Glamping is not for everyone!
*We are on 50 acres and sound carries. This means no loud music or parties. *Please be respectful of the peace, quiet and serenity of our property
*MUST arrive before dark

My husband, Peter Kitchell, and I are artists and have lived here for almost 30 years. Peter has carefully cultivated and nurtured the land, which includes building the Pondhouse with Hemlock trees from our woods. We have three buildings (our home and studios) a two minute walk from the Pondhouse. We are good at respecting our guest’s privacy but are also happy to chat and answer any questions. I've made a great list of places to eat (including dog friendly & vegan!)
** Having a special anniversary? Give us a budget and we can decorate with extra special things like flowers, treats, or whatever you'd like!


This is truly an amazing place.
***PLEASE READ ENTIRE LISTING DESCRIPTION AND RULES BEFORE REQUESTING A RESERVATION.*** We want to make sure that your stay meets your expectations... When making a request, please tell us a little about yourselves, your interest in the Pondhouse and indicate that you have read the full listing and house rules... Thank you!

Serveis i zones comuns

Hi ha una llar de foc als afores de la Pondhouse per a incendis i rostir a la graella. El bany es troba a l'edifici d'estudi, a dos minuts a peu de la Pondhouse. Teniu una petita nevera situada al costat del bany, a més d'un armari amb plats de paper reciclat i utensilis, tetera elèctrica, cafetera, cafè i tes. La majoria dels hostes que planegen cuinar també aporten refrigeradors i altres elements essencials que portarien en un viatge de càmping. Si estàs de viatge i no tens res amb tu, digues-me i podem assegurar-te que tens tot el que necessites. Vivim i treballem aquí i demanem que ho tingui en compte. El bany està baix en l'estudi de Peter. Si us plau, respecti el seu espai i no vagis. Està encantat de fer una gira si té temps, només cal preguntar-ho.

A fire pit just outside the Pondhouse is available for fires and grilling. The bathroom is in the studio building, a two minute walk from the Pondhouse. You have use of a small fridge located across from the bathroom, as well as a cabinet stocked with recycled paper plates and utensils, electric teapot, coffee press, coffee and teas. Most guests planning to cook also bring coolers and other essentials they'd bring on a camping trip. If you are traveling and don't have anything with you, please tell me and we can make sure you have everything you need!

We live and work here and ask that you keep this in mind. The bathroom is downstairs in Peter's studio. Please be respectful of his space and do not wander around. He is happy to give a tour if he has time - just ask!

Interacció amb els hostes

Us donem la benvinguda, us informem i us agrada ajudar-vos amb tot allò que necessiteu. SI US PLAU PER A VERIFICAR A ANTICIPAR. Entenem que això no sempre és possible, però aquest no és el tipus de lloc en què tingueu una clau i deixeu-vos entrar, i és fonamental fer la visita mentre encara no hi ha llum. Si sou un grup de 4, us demanem que, en tot cas, tots els clients arribin junts. Si teniu gos, podeu veure més de nosaltres, ja que el nostre gos, Charlie, sempre està content de tenir un company de joc. Tinc una llista de grans restaurants per a gossos, i algunes coses per fer aquí. Si us plau, aviseu-nos quan us marqui, ens agrada sentir-nos la vostra estada i acomiadar-vos!

We welcome you, check in on you, and are happy to help with anything you need.

PLEASE PLAN TO CHECK IN BEFORE DARK. We understand this isn’t always possible, but this isn't the kind of place where you pick up a key and let yourself in, and it’s essential to get the tour while it’s still light outside. If you are a group of 4, we ask that if at all possible all guests arrive together.

If you have a dog, you may see more of us as our dog, Charlie, is always happy to have a playmate. I have a list of great, dog friendly restaurants, and a few things to do around here.

Please let us know when you leave - we like to hear how about your stay, and to say goodbye!

Podeu consultar sempre abans de sortir a dinar o sopar. Els neoyorquins! Eviteu que el trànsit surti de NYC agafant el tren cap a New Haven. Podeu llogar un cotxe des d'Avis: super fàcil i menys costós que llogar a la ciutat.

We need to be here when you check in, so communication about arrival time is essential. I plan my schedule around meeting you - and ask that you respect this. I try to be flexible, but sometimes need to agree on an arrival time, so please stick to this and communicate if you are running late.You can always check in before going back out to lunch or dinner.

New Yorkers! Avoid the traffic getting out of NYC by taking the train to New Haven. You can rent a car from Avis - super easy and less expensive than renting in the city!

What a wonderful retreat! My only regret is I wished we had planned a longer stay!! The Pondhouse is close enough to others to feel nice and safe but private enough to make you feel like you're out in the middle of the woods (which you basically are!). The short walk to the studio to use the bathroom was totally worth it. The bathroom was super cute with all the essentials available to use (including a hot shower with great water pressure!!). Gayle and Peter were great hosts! Very friendly and great conversation. Allowing us the comfort to make sure we had everything we needed but the privacy expected when retreating for the weekend. The Pondhouse itself was just a magical treat! Gorgeous views coupled with the freshest air and a cozy bed with lots of down comforters! I hope to visit again soon!!

We loved the rustic charm of the Pondhouse, feeling the breeze throughout the night, hearing the sounds of crickets, frogs, and owls as we feel asleep, and waking up to the sunrise over the pond. We cooked dinner over the fire one night and also enjoyed the many of the local restaurants that Gayle suggested, all of which were wonderful experiences. Charlie greeted us upon our arrival and kept us company throughout the stay, which we thoroughly enjoyed.

We highly recommend The Pond House! My husband and I just stayed here to celebrate our 1st anniversary and it was truly amazing. It was a chance to have fun, relax, and just enjoy the weekend. Gayle, her husband Peter, and their dog Charlie are truly great hosts. We're from a busy part of MA. and we have very busy jobs and it was just great to unwind and relax! Gayle gave us great recommendations for places to eat and things to see. Thank you so much, Jazz & Charlie

If you are looking for a quiet place to relax and unwind for the hustle and bustle of every day life, then the pond house is the place. We packed our coolers and did our cooking over the fire. Gayle provided us with many utensils and made clean up a breeze. Charlie will be your pal while you're there and if you bring your furry friend. We can't wait to book our next trip to the pond house. The leaves had just started to change to fall and the views were incredible! Definitely enjoyed ourselves out in nature this weekend!

Perfil de l'usuari GayleGayle és un Superhost.

I am an illustrator & my husband Peter Kitchell is a photographer/painter/builder all round renaissance man . We've lived out here for 28 years after moving from San Francisco. Our kids are out of the house - and we decided it made sense to open up our place. Both of us have our work studios here. I jog & walk daily with our dog Charlie and do yoga as often as possible in town at Shelburne Falls Yoga & spin in Greenfield about 30 min. away. I'm vegan and love to cook. We both love to travel and have stayed as Airbnb guests many times. We love to go see live music and movies or can easily spend a whole day laying around reading if we have the time. After many years of living out here with just our family, it's been fun to open up our place for others to enjoy it. We really enjoy all the interesting people we've had the pleasure of meeting as Airbnb hosts!
