Doglover too----"A few years ago an enterprising arts writer for the Bennington Banner, Hinda Mandell, ignored the ?private property? sign at the front door and was welcomed by the Walloomsac Inn's current resident, Arlene Berry, Walter's granddaughter.
Ms. Mandell's article observed: ?Any discussion about the inn with locals is steeped in questions about its future, the current condition of the property, and various personality traits of Walter Berry's granddaughters, Arlene, Kathleen Kaiser, and Donna Berry Maroney.?

It is an amazing house, and even more amazing that someone is still living in a small part of it.

It doesn't look like it's livable and you say the grandaughter of the previous owner lives there? Strange.

This is one beautiful old residence - especially after it's been snowing. It makes a wonderful picture, thanks punkin:)

Had to have been beautiful in it's time.

I understand that a grandaughter of a previous owner currently lives there. On the front porch, we see signs of "real life" when we drive by. In the summer, pots of nice plants; in the fall, pumpkins and other decorations; in the winter, wreaths. We are always amazed to think that someone still lives in the old inn, and that she demands her privacy.

Hard to imagine this being a private residence. It is so huge!
