The barn and surrounding property is beautiful. The house was well equipped and comfortable. Since we had been on the road for almost two weeks, we cooked in every night. The only suggestion I would make is to have a few additional pots available. We truly enjoyed our time at Kingsley barn. Thank you!
For my wife and I this was our first time to visit Vermont and experience its beautiful foliage. The town of South Woodstock is super small and quaint but you are just a few miles drive from Woodstock, it’s history, shopping, and dining, as well as some very scenic nearby farms. We even attended a “community dinner” one night at the Masonic lodge. We also took an afternoon to drive farther north to Stowe. I enjoyed Stowe but it was very crowded and I was happy we had chosen the more secluded town of South Woodstock for our stay.
As for the house itself: SO COOL! From the moment we stepped out of our car onto the leaf strewn drive and saw the home surrounded by beautiful forest we knew we had made the right choice. The interior decor is clean and modern. All other activities aside, some of our favorite time was just drinking coffee and looking out the windows into the infinite forest. The main living area is the 2nd floor so you have a real treehouse feel.
Aside from breakfasts we didn’t cook much at the house, but it was well equipped with kitchen appliances for anyone that wishes to do so. Cell service is rare around many of these towns, but the Aquene house is high tech with WiFi, HD TV, and cable/Netflix ready to go.
I am Wishing we had stayed a little longer to make some use of the onsite hiking trails (literally right outside the front door). Perhaps our biggest regret was not discovering the Dale Earnhardt jr. Pinball machine until our last night there! The host checked in on us to make sure we were settled and had what we needed.
Our time in Vermont is already a treasured and unique travel experience and the hospitality of Aquene played a big part of that. We are honored to have been the first guests and I truly hope reading this convinces you to book a visit at Aquene to enjoy it for yourself.
