"Truly a Special Place" Our stay at Karin's Place was memorable for so many good reasons. The location is quiet and on 26 beautiful acres in Pownal, VT. The property has a lovely heated pool, indoor hot-tub, beautiful garden, pool room and a gazebo, wonderful for reading, relaxing or talking with friends. Jenny, the proprietor was very friendly and welcoming during our stay. The beds were comfortable and the whole place was spotlessly clean. With its sprawling mix of large common areas and private spaces, this would be a perfect place for a corporate retreat or a family reunion. There is even a grand piano, drop down screen and stage for musical performances or watching movies. The outdoor barbecue and fire-pit out back made for wonderful evening meals and gatherings. This is truly a special place with a lot to offer and we look forward to our next visit.
Renew Wedding Vows Karin' Place - what a truly special discovery. One of those random things that seems to have been meant to be. My husband and I had been looking for a venue to host the renewal of our wedding vows where our guests could stay with us. A friend of mine suggested Karin's Place and it was perfect. We received spectacular customer service from Jenny and John in advance of our arrival. We live in Ireland and consequently had significant needs as we were able to do very little from so far away.
The event itself was a stunning success. 25 guests stayed at Karin's Place with us and 30 stayed in nearby hotels. We used the caterer suggested by Jenny and WOW!! Good call. The food was immaculately presented and was absolutely delicious with just enough left overs to fulfil the late night munchies.
We had the ceremony on the deck overlooking the expanse of lawn fringed by woodland. We had the meal in the patio surrounded by landscaped gardens, the pirate ship playground, and various nooks for intimate chats. And in the background we could hear the delighted yelps and laughter of kids in the pool. Absolute bliss. When a dramatic summer thunder storm arrived just after the meal, everyone filed into the Grand Room and the party established itself in there with dancing and music.
I cannot recommend Karin's Place highly enough. It's a deeply romantic and inspiring location. Enhanced greatly by the creativity and innovation shown by Jenny and John.
