Great place to stay, Very Nice cottages, Clean and comfortable, Strong Wi-Fi , Nice View of the surrounding Mountains. Two Great places to eat, The Publyk House and Zoe's. Publyk House is right down the road on 7A, Great Blackened Salmon. The Owners Were wonderful and very accommodating. Hope to be back there soon.

LOVED my stay at Serenity. The Cabins are extremely cute and cozy, very welcoming and extremely clean. Janelle and Mike were so awesome and told us the good things to do. I really enjoyed the peaceful setting of the cabins, absolutely perfect for a little relaxing get away. Highly recommended.

The room, a small cabin, was warm, clean and private with a comfortable bed and lots of fresh clean towels. I would...

We've stayed at Serenity several times, with and without pets. It's always a wonderful experience. The cottages are adorable. It's like having your own little house in the Vermont countryside, with a sweet front porch for enjoying a glass of wine and the Vermont evenings. They're quiet, spotless and comfortable. Beds are really comfortable too. This isn't the Hampton Inn...

My fiancé, dog, and I stayed here for one night, and we loved it! The cottage was adorable, and well kept. The owner was very friendly and told me about all of these awesome places to visit, which I would not have known about otherwise. We definitely recommend staying here, and plan on visiting again in the future. Thank you...
