When my wife and I arrived at the end of August,there was no electricity in the room. When we checked in the owner was out and his out of town friend told us he went into town. After our sightseeing day we came back and the electricity was working. The room was very clean but the bed was not comfortable... More

It was a big foliage and square dance weekend and our usual choices nearer Bennington were full. We were lucky to get the last cabin here. I've been to old tourist cabins of the 30s before, although not here. You expect them to be small, with just the essentials. I've been in others with no tv and no phone. This... More

My wife told me that we had a cabin for the night in Shaftsbury, VT. When we arrived, there were 6-8 small cabins but we had the opinion there were a total of a dozen or more. This number may include some units at the main house where we checked in.Ours was a single unit. We pulled in between two... More

This is a wonderful place for a private getaway! Individual cottages with a porch was perfect for us because it was raining upon our arrival and we were able to enjoy sitting outside. Very clean inside, small, but cozy--plenty of room for a couple or a couple with a child. It is also PET FRIENDLY! Able to have tea/hot chocolate/beverages... More

My wife, daughter and I and our 2 dogs just got back from a weekend at Serenity Cottages. What a great place! The new owners are really friendly and the place is spotless and well maintained. It felt like stepping back in time, except for the fast and free wi-fi access. Beds were super comfortable, the heat worked really well,... More

What a wonderful place. John,the owner,is the nicest man. We stayed in cabin #2 and although it is small we spent most of our time on the porch. The road noise is a little loud because we were closer to the road but it quiets down early. Having a fridge and microwave was great. The place is very clean and... More

This motel is not your average motel, it is actually a set of good sized cottages. They are very clean, and very cozy, an all around great place to stay. It is pet friendly, and the area surrounding has a great amount of this to do.
