Guestbook comments from the manager
We came up to enjoy a little family time with the new baby & the Irish Music Festival & Garlic Festival. The house was amazing-awesome to give everyone their own space & still let everyone enjoy each others company. Perfect distance from the festivals. We ran & biked every day. Great scenery, beautiful grounds-great for family photos. Everyone cannot wait to come up next year. Maybe the baby will even swim in the pond!

Spacious and cozy, would definitely go back

  • 5 of 5
The house and area is beautiful in the winter. There were 8 people in my group. We had plenty of room to all fit in the kitchen, the living room, dining, etc. All bedrooms are spacious.

We did some snowshoeing and sledding around the yard. The house is at a base of a mountain, so it's perfect for winter activities. It was great not to have to leave the property at all!

I would come back to this house again!

A great house in the winter.

  • 5 of 5
We were completely happy with our stay at this house. My wife and I took our two young kids (6&4) for a long weekend in the winter, and we couldn't have had a better time. The house was extremely clean, very well kept, and comfortable. The owner, and property managers, moreover, couldn't have been more accommodating - from the call I received a day before our arrival warning me of a storm in the immediate forecast (and some suggestions to work around it - thanks!), to the personal delivery of worms to the house just so my kids might try casting fishing poles into the stocked pond. (The fish weren't biting, but it hardly mattered to the kids). It was apparent they took a personal interest in our visit from the moment we reserved the property to the time we left to go back home; it made a difference.

We also lucked out with the storm, as it left enough snow for the kids to play and sled down the little hill in the backyard for three days. They literally didn't want to leave the property the entire time, and we were happy not to.

High recommendations from us.

The house and location with the view across the valley and fall colors were beautiful. And our 10 or 12 visitors from Florida (there for our sons wedding in Bennington) also thought so.

Excellent stay at an amazing house. Pictures do not do this place justice. It is an absolutely beautiful house and perfect for peaceful getaway. Dianna and Rich were absolutely wonderful to us, catered to our needs and were extremely attentive when we needed things for the house. A bad storm knocked out the wireless router and they responded right away by purchasing a new one. We were provided firewood upon request and he delivered right to the front door. The house, itself, is vacation enough, but they also had tons of brochures and menus from Bennington. I can't say enough positive thing about our stay! Marty
