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...

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...

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...

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,...

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...

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.

Serenity motel is actually cute little cabins. They are clean and cozy and fairly inexpensive. Nice little porch to sit on though right on a main st it isn't as quiet as u want it to be. any eating places are at least 5 miles away.

Loved the cottages from the moment we pulled in. Quaint and pretty.....light yellow with blue shutters, and little porches with flower bushes adorning the few steps to the porch. A full bed, couch, bathroom with walk-in shower, microwave, little coffee pot with coffee provided and a small refrigerator. Was initially worried about not having a full kitchen because of my...
