My family and friends spent the JULY 4th weekend at Serenity. This was my fourth visit, and I was glad to introduce others to this charming retreat in southwest Vermont. We found the individual cabins to be perfect for our families. We could be alone when we needed to be or put children down for naps and still be close... More

These cottages are cute and are very clean! You get a beautiful view of the mountains, the staff was friendly and helpful and best of all it is pet friendly! The price per night was affordable also. We will definitely be back if we are in the area!

My family and I were looking for a quiet place to get away for a while. We went to the Serenity Motel and are so glad we did. The cottages are adorable. We loved the fact that the cabins were close in case you came with a big party but still offered some privacy if needed. While staying at the... More

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
