Interaction with guestsYou’re immediately struck by the ambience and the architectural décor of The Loft. This residential ambience provides a true sense of place. It’s open, airy loft-like beamed ceiling beautifully frames this storybook experience. Large windows throughout deliver postcard views as the morning sun illuminates the space shortly after rising above adjacent Northeast Mountain. The furnishings are interesting as they are eclectic, from an English Pine armoire, to a resting basket of vintage billiard balls. Working wooden decoy ducks sit comfortably on a single hand-hewn beam, nearby is a single ten-foot oar from an early 1960s English regatta along with a trove of other interesting artifacts. Our breakfast menu is extraordinary...

It Just Doesn't Get Any Better Than This!!
Another absolutely wonderful visit to Pond Mountain Inn, our home-away-from-home, nestled in the foothills of Wells, VT. We are in our eighth year of visiting Kay and Glenn, and it just gets better each time! They are the consummate hosts of a beautiful micro-Inn and provide a warm and welcoming environment for their guests! The property and the setting is just spectacular! The daily breakfasts, whether alfresco or in the lovely dining room in the main house, are like nothing you've ever experienced! If we could give more than 5-stars, we definitely would! Can't wait for our next visit in October! Thank you, Kay and Glenn, for being such lovely and generous hosts!!

The best BnB experience you could wish for!
Pond Mountain Inn is an amazing place! We returned for the 2nd time, and it was just as amazing as the first time. Glenn & Kay are phenomenal hosts, and go above and beyond to make your stay memorable. They have tons of ideas for things to do during your visit. You will come as guests, and leave as friends! Beautiful location & view, super clean and comfortable suite, and absolutely delicious breakfasts. You won't find a better place to stay, and we will return as soon as we can!

Vermont the way it should be...
Being from the area back in the day, our stay with Glenn and Kay was a walk back in time. Despite all the changes in the outside world, the Pond Mountain Inn has remained true to its rustic nature while complementing all the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside. Thank you for your stewardship of a piece of "Old Vermont".

Perfection!
Perfect weekend getaway! We stayed in the loft which was so spacious, cozy and had the most beautiful view. We didn't have solid plans before heading here. Glenn and Kay helped us plan our entire trip; we were never bored. We took a gorgeous hike, visited a farm, saw Hilldine and had the best food. Kay is an amazing cook- We had the greatest quiche ever. They sent us home with fresh pork chops, eggs and extra quiche. 10/10 suggest for a picturesque trip.

Delightful Destination, Delightful Hosts
We were excited to visit the Pond Mountain Inn for the 2nd time, having made sure not to leave our first visit without securing another reservation. We stayed in The Loft Suite, and it was as charming, as spacious, as warm and welcoming, comfortable and picturesque as we had recalled. The breakfasts prepared by our hosts, Kay & Glenn, were also as delicious and relaxed as we had recalled. We came with less structured plans than our first visit, and we were so delighted by the carefully curated ideas that Glenn & Kay shared with us for our stay. We followed their suggestions, and were introduced to wonderful destinations just a day trip away. This was above and beyond the gracious hospitality we knew we already would experience during our stay. Thank you Glenn & Kay!

Lovely Micro Inn Nestled in the Foothills of Wells, VT!
We just completed an absolutely wonderful stay at Pond Mountain Inn where we again enjoyed the warmth and hospitality of Innkeepers Kay & Glenn, the simply scrumptious daily breakfasts prepared by Kay with, of course, help from Glenn and the stunningly gorgeous fall foliage colors! We love staying up in the Loft Apartment, which provides a beautiful vista of Pond Mountain in all of its gold / orange / purple / red glory this time of year! We took numerous fun daytrips from our Pond Mountain Inn home-base; from North to Burlington / Orwell / Middlebury to East to Rutland / Killington to West to Dancing Ewe Farm / South Glens Falls, NY and to South to Manchester. So much to see and do in Vermont and, as the locals say, everything is "just a 45-minute drive away!" We just completed our 6th year as twice yearly guests at Pond Mountain Inn and have already booked two extended stays in 2023. The quaint micro Inn is the real deal and we recommend it without reservation!

Kay joins me in thanking you both for another extraordinary review—as our most frequent guests, you both are the embodiment of the true Vermont experience. This past autumn was perhaps the best year in a decade with the fall colors catching us all by surprise. Absolutely magnificent! And, it was fun experimenting with a few breakfasts, however the best breakfast was the Potato Nested Escargot with Garlic-Parsley Scrambled Eggs… absolutely delicious, but may not be on everyone’s breakfast radar. See you in June!! All our best – Kay & Glenn

A Stunningly Beautiful Boutique Bed & Breakfast!
We've just had another magical visit to Pond Mountain Inn in Well, VT. Innkeepers Kay & Glenn are simply wonderful hosts and always make us feel very welcome to their beautiful boutique bed and breakfast! Early morning coffee on the front porch, sitting in newly refurbished Adirondack chairs, enjoying a robust cup of specially blended Pond Mountain Inn coffee! Stunning views of the beautiful trees that surround the property and those on the mountain across the way, with different shades and hues of greens. Some mornings not a cloud in the sky, while others have various sizes and shapes of puffy white clouds sailing by on the jet stream. Listening to many different types of birds chirping and to the woodpeckers pecking. Watching a hawk or two soaring on the winds and tiny hummingbirds feeding a mere 6' away. Hearing the gentle breezes rustling through the trees, watching the occasional deer wander down the gravel drive and then bound across the front lawn to the fields next door. Perhaps a red fox trotting across the lawn to drink at the pond down near The Cottage and then continuing his morning journey. The sun beginning to peak over the top of the mountain across the way and starting to warm the front porch. A perfect start to the morning, and all of this before one of Kay's magnificent breakfasts! Life is good, and even better as a regular guest at Pond Mountain Inn!

Thank you for the wonderfully descriptive “early morning review”. You captured the morning moment perfectly—sitting comfortably in the east-facing classic green Adirondack chairs with a mug of our Pond Mountain Inn blend coffee as the sun slowly rises behind Northeast Mountain. All the sights and sounds come alive surrounded by distant meadows and dramatic mountain views. The morning may be the most special part of the day. Now, as our longest staying guests, you can offer more thoughtful insights about the beauty and tranquility of one of Vermont’s most special places!

The perfect place to get away!
This was the first time my family and I opted to stay at a bed and breakfast. Our experience at Pond Mountain was absolutely fantastic and we can't wait to return to the comfort of the cabin and the hospitality shared by Glen and Kay. The cabin was adorable, spacious and very clean...so much better than any hotel I've ever visited. Glen and Kay were very welcoming and helpful sharing their extensive knowledge of the area. Then there's breakfast...OMG. The breakfast was one of the best I have ever had and I am now addicted to the bacon that was served. I couldn't recommend this jewel any more. We cannot wait to return!

Kay joins me in thanking you so much for the wonderful review. We loved having you and it was such a pleasure meeting you and your family! We wished that you could have stayed longer, but you will next time. It was fun doing the bacon “taste test” … our bacon was always very good, but now since we’ve taken our bacon and sausage to the next level, it’s extraordinary! For everyone that’s reading this, we only buy Dankin Farm (Vermont) bacon and sausage, which you can buy direct. Also, we raise our own pigs with our neighbor on their property, which is a fun visit for our guests—our bacon that comes from pigs we raise is delicious, but completely different. If you can make it back this fall, we have some amazing things for you to do… Thank you again for taking the time to post your very kind review and have a great summer!! All our best – Kay & Glenn

Heaven in Vermont
My partner and I visit the Pond Mountain Inn multiple times a year. It’s in a beautiful area within a nature setting and central to everything you’d want to do in Vermont. Glenn and Kay are amazing hosts and have endless suggestions for anything you’d want to do. We especially look forward to Kay’s breakfast which is better than any restaurant. We’ve gone to Stratton, have taken maple syrup tours, rode horses and enjoyed the local food. We always find new things to do on our trips, while enjoying our go-to favorite spots. Every time we leave we start thinking about when we can return. There is nowhere better to stay.

Fall is Fantastic at Pond Mountain Inn!
We’ve just returned home from another wonderful visit to Pond Mountain Inn. Ten days this trip, to visit family and friends, and see the fall foliage. Pond Mountain Inn is such a beautiful place, so relaxing, so quiet and so enjoyable. Innkeepers Kay and Glenn are such great hosts! They are friendly, sincere and go out of their way to ensure their guests have a good time in Vermont. The accommodations are just outstanding and the daily breakfasts are pasture-to-table, beautifully prepared and simply delicious! Take a look at the Pond Mountain Inn website, which is very well-done and provides a great overview of the property and all the many things to do in the area. Can’t recommend Pond Mountain Inn strongly enough!
