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...

The bathroom Pondhouse guests use is downstairs in Peter's studio building. His studio is upstairs and is off limits. Unless you ask one of us for a tour. If Peter is not busy he will probably be happy to show you. Please be respectful that this is his workspace. Please don't hang out on the stairs or talk loudly in this space - he works at all hours ( he's an artist!:)

Gayle’s magical pond home far exceeded my expectations for the weekend. Peter’s craftsmanship is evident in every detail of their property from the welcome sign at the front gate to the complete layout of the pond home. I felt safe and cozy whilst being completely immersed in nature, including the sun waking me in the morning and the moon reflecting shadows from the trees at night. Gayle was very kind to connect with me and insured I had everything I needed during my stay. I was inspired to explore, relax and to write during my trip which is exactly what I was hoping for. The first night was definitely much cooler than the second but Gayle provided me with hot water bottles and more than enough bedding to stay warm. I was very excited to build a campfire and the grill/fire-pit was ready to go with firewood and kindling. I especially enjoyed Charlie and his curious nature.

Words really can’t describe what an incredible experience the pond house is. That said, I’ll try my best to impress how much I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful retreat to indulge in being outside and the stunning scenery surrounding your screened in, doorless, outdoor oasis. Gayle is a phenomenal host, and creates an experience for her guests so that they have to think of nothing, because she has already taken care of everything you could need. The land and surrounding greenery speak for itself, but even the interior of pond house itself is impeccably decorated and the bedding and bed are insanely comfortable. During our stay we hiked around the property, played with the gorgeous and incredibly well-behaved Charlie (Gayle’s Dog,) went into town for a meal per Gayle’s recommendations, built a fire, and enjoyed the stars. Gayle was kind enough to accommodate us with a last minute stay and I can’t thank her enough for the opportunity to truly relax and enjoy the incredible world she has created at the pond house. If you have the chance to stay here, do it; you will not be disappointed!!

The Pond House was one of my favorite experiences to date. So beautiful, serene and hand crafted. Our time there really led us to appreciate our surroundings and time away. Charlie was an amazingly friendly host and enjoyed showing us around! Gayle & Peter were wonderful hosts and truly enjoyed sharing their love of art with us. All of the local fare and restaurants recommended were perfect. We were impressed to be sleeping in 38 degree nights and as warm and cozy as could be, so fun! We could not recommend this highly enough. Thank you for such a memorable getaway.

Fantastic getaway spot with great hosts and beautiful views! This place is very secluded which has both pros and cons, so plan ahead. If you're looking to get away from the busyness of life, this is the place for you. I just hope you're not afraid of sleeping outside.

Respuesta de Gayle:
yes - def. not for folks who are afraid of the dark and the sounds of the sleeping outside :) glad you had a good time.

The property is truly one of a kind. All the colors of the trees were beautiful and changing. Definitely a place to get in touch with nature. Charlie made us feel safe. Gayle and Peter accommodated us very well with little things we forgot. It was a little chilly for October while we were there but we would definitely come back when its warmer.

Yes October can be cold! Try again next July :) Glad you had a good time and Charlie is doing his job!

Interacción con los huéspedes
Le damos la bienvenida, le registramos en usted, y somos felices de ayudar con cualquier cosa que usted necesita. POR FAVOR PLANIFIQUE PARA COMPROBAR ANTES DE OSCURIDAD. Entendemos que esto no siempre es posible, pero este no es el tipo de lugar donde recoger una llave y dejarse entrar, y es esencial para obtener el tour mientras todavía es luz fuera. Si usted es un grupo de 4, le pedimos que si es posible todos los invitados llegan juntos. Si usted tiene un perro, puede ver más de nosotros como nuestro perro, Charlie, siempre está contento de tener un compañero de juegos. Tengo una lista de restaurantes geniales para perros, y algunas cosas que hacer por aquí. Por favor, háganos saber cuando se vaya - nos gusta saber qué tal su estancia, y decir adiós!

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!

Acerca de Gayle

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!
