Pond Mountain Inn COVID-19 Response

This is our commitment to our guests, friends and family, as we navigate through Coronavirus…

The safety and wellbeing of our guests is our top priority at Pond Mountain Inn. We continue to take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. In response to the coronavirus, we have taken additional measures developed in consultation with the Vermont Department of Health, World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to make our cleaning and hygiene protocols even more rigorous.

Our personal commitment is that we are adhering to all the best evidence-based public health advice. We continue doing everything that we can to ensure your safety and provide maximum flexibility as the situation around novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve.

 Reservations

We also want to assure you that we understand the need for flexibility in planning your travel during this time and we want you to feel confident when booking, modifying or canceling your vacation plans.

Guests that booked directly with Pond Mountain Inn for travel this year please feel free to modify or cancel your reservation without penalty up to and including the day of your visit. We want you to have as much flexibility as possible and will accommodate any changes that make you feel most comfortable.

If your booking was made with an online travel agent or other third-party travel professional, you should contact the booking provider to make amendments. That said, we are happy to help in the unlikely event that you run into difficulties.

On a Lighter Note…

We are safe, healthy and continue limiting our exposure unnecessarily. We are focusing on inside projects at the inn and taking advantage of solitary outdoor activities, which we’ll share with you in the coming weeks.  

Most sincerely,

Kay & Glenn

Everyone Drinks Bottled Water – But Not At Pond Mountain Inn!

When’s the last time you drank water directly from the tap instead of bottled water? Water at Pond Mountain Inn is exceptional; independently lab tested and is delivered from a 360 foot deep artesian well. By the time it reaches your glass, our water has been filtered twice and has passed through ultraviolet disinfection technology. By the time our water reaches the cottage it has passed through an additional filter and ultraviolet light. Our water is crisp, clean and delicious!

Not all water is the same. The Svalbard Islands are located in the Arctic Ocean, halfway between Norway and the North Pole boasts some of the most expensive and finest water on the planet – 750ml at $150! Maybe it’s so expensive because they must scrape the ice from icebergs or glaciers. Then there’s water from Copenhagen, often considered the best tasting water from the tap. How about water on the International Space Station? Now, think about how and where that gets recycled – surely not so pleasing to the palate.

So, the next time you’re a guest at Pond Mountain Inn consider bringing a five gallon refillable water jug and taking some of this precious resource back home!

This is how we do Spring Break in Vermont at Pond Mountain Inn

Winter hadn’t quite given up… two days after the vernal equinox we received a traditional spring snow – dumping over fourteen inches at Pond Mountain Inn.  While looking forward to warmer weather and removing the last vestiges of winter – this is how we do things in Vermont!

Chippy’s First Video… This is Adorable!

We love our little chipmunk, Chippy. He joins us throughout the day – mostly in the morning and conveniently at the cocktail hour. Chippy is enormously responsive – he always comes when called regardless of the distance and our guests feed him too! I decided to video him the other day…. Turn up the volume and listen. It’s my first wildlife video so be slightly patient. It’s always an adventure at Pond Mountain Inn!

“Chippy” Says Spring is Here…

chippy_march-2017_700

Prognosticator Punxsutawney Phil called for six more weeks of winter; however Pond Mountain Inn has its own prognosticator, “Chippy”. Our adorable little chipmunk arose from his winter’s nap yesterday looking a little groggy, a tad plump and a touch timid, but today he’s alert and had his morning breakfast. It looks like spring may be here!

Sledding In Vermont at Pond Mountain Inn

The snow has abated, but the northern winds continued… Adorned in snow apparel with sleds in hand Kay and I ventured outside to take advantage of the property’s undulating terrain. Well bundled with only our faces exposed we soon realized that the 12° afternoon temperature combined with gusting winds put the wind chill somewhere just below zero. Fifteen minutes and four short downhill rides later we hurried back inside where we were reunited our new wood burning stove – 650° provided great comfort. Maybe we’ll try again tomorrow.

Christmas Tree Recycling – Give It To The Goats

christmas-tree-disposal

Kay and I were visiting our neighbor down the road at Mountain Ledge Farm – they have both Nubian and Alpine goats running around in their pasture and raises them for their milk. Six beautiful babies were born less than a month ago and they are beyond adorable!!

Courtney brought up a question that surprised both Kay and I; she asked, “What are you planning to do with your Christmas tree after the season?” “Well”, I replied, “we haven’t given it much thought, but it’s likely going to find its way into the woods or the landfill.” Courtney had a better idea…. Now everyone knows that goats eat just about everything, but did you know they eat Christmas trees?

Two great things came of this, a special treat for the goats and we have the opportunity to recycle our Christmas tree in a natural and very environmental method to keep these trees out of the landfill.
