THE PLACE TO STAY IN BENNINGTON AREA!!!

  • 5 of 5
This is now our choice to stay while visiting the area. We have been visiting the Bennington area for the last fifteen years, occasionally twice a year. We have stayed at B & B and hotels in Vermont while on various visits to our daughter and family in the area. This year we opted to try renting a house since we were staying Thanksgiving week. Best decision we could have made.
The location of the house is centrally located in southwest Vermont with reasonable driving access to New York, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.
There are many attractions for anyone to enjoy. No matter what your interests are: history, active life style, sporting events, touring, arts, shopping or just enjoying the walks and views in quiet relaxation, it is all available from the house
The house is welcoming, warm and a great place to settle in...just like being at home away from home. The house is walking distance from the Revolutionary War monument, museum, cemetery, historic New England church and golf course with public restaurant. Downtown Bennington is just a longer walk or short drive away. A small town atmosphere with friendly people to greet you.
A short drive away allows the usual big name stores like WalMart.
Open the from door and you feel like a its a step into the past.
The interior of the house provides plenty of rooms with welcoming furnishings to have the family visit or get away to relax with isolation and quiet. The number of books provides an invitation to browse and relax by the fire place with a wood fire on a snowy evening. We choose to avoid the phone, internet and TV while away, but the house accommodates. The house is well appointed, clean and maintained, as described. The owner is well organized and provides copious communication and information to easily adapt to the surroundings, and appointments while a local young lady serves can help if required. No problems or issues.
We enjoyed hiking with our dog off leash in a different area every day, a visit to Williams College, shopping in Manchester, breakfast at the Blue Benn, dinner at the Country Club, and Bennington Station...the snow and wintery scenes.
Most of all we enjoyed our family together at "our house" with the two children exploring the rooms, finding books to read, hiding out, playing games or just sharing stories with no distractions...all while having a wood burning fireplace blazing to keep late November cold nights cozy!
What an experience! Highly recommended!

BEAUTIFUL HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We contacted Lucy to inquire about staying at her home to celebrate our parents 50th anniversary, and are so glad we did! The home is beautiful, with a gorgeous view and lovely gardens. We spent the better part of our time, while at the house, on the back porch and enjoyed every minute of our stay there. Lucy is so nice to work with, and we appreciate her opening up her home for our stay. I brought my greyhound Parker, and she was very accommodating with that, and he was very comfortable there as well. Everyone had a very nice time, and we enjoyed coming back to Vermont after so many years and being able to stay in such a nice house!

We had a wonderful stay at the Monument House! Everything was perfect and Lucy was great to work with! We ran down to the Bennington Bookstore on our way out of town to purchase a few of the books which we started but hadn't yet finished. Thank you!

EXPERIENCE HISTORY AT THIS BEAUTIFUL HOME!

  • 5 of 5
As a westerner, I love New England for its history as much as the scenery. One of my favorite memories of visiting Vermont years ago was Monument Street in old Bennington, with its stately historic homes decorated for fall. The street was like a scene from a Martha Stewart episode, and this house is one of those homes I admired, just a few houses down from the Bennington Monument!

We were there for my son's graduation from RPI, just 35 minutes away. We thoroughly enjoyed this historic house---my relatives loved all the "nooks and crannies" upstairs, and I slept on the cool "sleeping porch" one night. It is very homey and comfortable, more comfortable than some of the more "modern" places I've rented on vrbo.

The property has a sweeping back yard and beautiful flowers adorn the deck and front and back gardens. Eating out on the deck beats going to any restaurant, and I appreciated the well-equipped kitchen with modern appliances. It may seem trivial to point this out, but they had high-quality, sharp, kitchen knives that made me feel right at home cooking.

It was very relaxing: we loved the place so much that we felt we had better "quality time" sitting on the deck reading than braving the crowds in Manchester. There are many historic sites within walking distance: the Bennington Monument, covered bridges, the old church and cemetery, and the Bennington museum with the Grandma Moses gallery and one of the oldest US flags in existence.

If you love history and historic charm, stay here!

Owner's Response: Johanna, It was our great pleasure to share Monument House with your family for son's graduation from RPI. Congratulations to you all! You arrived just after our visit and enjoyed the same experiences, lunch on the porch, reading time and some historical site seeing. Thank you for your detailed review. It really captured the essence of Monument House and Bennington. We hope you return soon! Lucy

EXCELLENT VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time to New England and I have to say Vermont is the most beautiful state in the several that we visited. Monument House was an absolutely gorgeous home filled with wonderful antiques and with everything you could ever want. All we needed was our food and clothes. We loved Old Bennington, Manchester and Burlington...all had its' own character and personality. We had two toddlers with us, ages 2 and 4 and Monuent House provided toys, games and the best back yard that two little boys could ever want to play in. I must say my favorite bedroom and the one my husband and I slept in while were there was the sleeping porch. It's surrounded by screen and as soon as you'd open your eyes you were surrounded by the most beautiful trees with the sun shining so slightly through them. We felt like we were sleeping in a tree house. We came all the way from Hawaii and if we ever go back to Vermont again, there would be no other place I'd want stay. Thank you so much for a great experience and for all your help for the many months we planned our trip. Mahalo and Aloha...until we meet (or email) again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. We are so honored that you chose Monument House for your mainland New England vacation. Thank you for having confidence to come to Vermont, mere weeks after Hurricane Irene. Shows that Hawaiians share Vermonters' pluck! Please return some day. Lucy

HAPPY MEMORIES IN BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
Antiques abound throughout this home, except kitchen, which has all modern appliances and equipment. Owner provides tips on house, nearby attractions, shopping, restaurants. A favorite place was the spacious back porch, overlooking lush landscaped back yard. Within walking distance to Bennington Monument, Bennington Museum, and Old First Church; and close to downtown. Highly recomment this rental property.
