We stay here at least twice a year when we visit Vermont because it is so comforting, dependable and serene. When new owners took over in 2014, I was nervous, but, so far, there was no need to be. Extra pillows, there before I arrived, without asking. Friendly and accommodating were the ex owners as well as the new ones.... More

I've stayed three times at SERENITY, each time in a different one of the 8 private cottages. Each cottage is laid out a little different, but there are some things in common with all of them: they are clean, cozy, comfortable, and quiet. The cottages are set back from Historic Route 7a, which makes it even more peaceful. The porch... More

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
