Victorian Home in Bennington, Vermont

Beautifully updated home in a quaint Vermont town.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas escape to Vermont. The home in Bennington was just perfect for our family of 4 and 2 dogs, made even better by the picturesque snowfall. We were walking distance to town for morning coffee or evening pizza and close enough to several ski resorts, covered bridges and New England historical sites. Though we never met our local hostess in person, she was very welcoming over the phone, available as needed and made sure the home was all set up for our arrival. We would love to go back for a longer stay next time.

Very Spacious and Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

The house is large and very comfortable. It's close to town and we were able to walk to dinner with a choice of several good restaurants. The kitchen was well stocked with pans and equipment so we were able to cook for breakfasts and a couple dinners - good for the pocketbook! The beds were comfy and I love the layout of the bedrooms. We were happy with our stay and would definitely stay there again.

Holiday stay in Bennington, Vermont

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at 121 Grandview. The caretaker met us and toured the house with us, making us feel comfortable and right at home immediately. The house was extremely clean, well-maintained, and comfortable. The layout of the bedrooms and the relaxing space was great. Everything we needed to cook meals was available. I would highly recommend this house for your stay in Bennington.

Like Home...

  • 5 of 5

We visited under difficult circumstances coming to town for my mother-in-law's funeral. My husband is originally from the quaint town of Bennington, VT so it was nice to stay in a home-like setting in a very familiar, close to town location. Although it wasn't a vacation for any of us, the home was simply beautiful and well appointed. The modern bathrooms were gorgeous! The home's owner (Royda) and property manager (Malcom) were great to work with (and we had a lot of questions too, thanks again Royda). The Vermont treats were an added bonus! We look forward to staying here again on our next visit!

Girlfriends Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Every year 6 girlfriends from various locations gather together for a weekend getaway. This year we stayed at this Victorian home in Bennington, VT. What a wonderful place to gather. Malcolm, the house manager, greeted us and showed us around. He was great. The home was perfect.......plenty of room, comfortable setting, all the amenities necessary with a welcome basket of Vermont made products. The house has completely updated bathrooms, comfortable sized bedrooms, plush linens and towels. We loved it. We felt so comfortable as we gathered in the living room for conversation and games. The dining table was perfect for our meals. While we did venture out and see the sights of Bennington, we just loved relaxing in this home. Definitely a place where we would return in the future. Thank you.

Great space for several families to share

  • 4 of 5

Several families shared this beautiful home for a holiday get together. The space is very tastefully furnished and beautifully remodelled. The owner was responsive within 1-2 days of communications and the local manager was wonderful. My only negative is that the owner never told the local manager we were coming. I was fortunate enough to call a day ahead so he could scramble to clean the house, otherwise we would've been a total surprise even though we had it rented for weeks. This unfortunately is the downside to the local manager not being the direct contact to renters. Otherwise we had a great experience.
