Description

The Space

The house dates from 1865 and has all the character and charm of an older cottage. It is updated and comfortably furnished. One of two second floor bedrooms, the guest room is adjacent to a "walk-through" sitting room with a shared half bath across the hall. There is a shared full bath downstairs.

Guest Access

Be comfortable and enjoy the house. There is a bright and sunny sitting room upstairs adjacent to the guest room. Use the kitchen as you need to. Store your cold things in the fridge. I like to bake something to go with your coffee and the deck is a lovely place to enjoy that. Birdsong, sunshine or shelter under the patio umbrella. (Newspapers and deli-style breakfasts are also available next door at Powers Market.) There is cable TV in the living room and wifi throughout the house. There are evenings when we have a campfire at the pond. You are always welcome to join us.

Interaction with Guests

I work in my home studio and will probably be there. Although I will help you settle in, I will also give you space to relax and do your own thing. I am always available to you for information and assistance.

The Neighborhood

This is an easy-going, comfortable town with a strong arts community. The Pangaea Lounge is a favorite cafe-style bar and eatery. Looking for the best place to hike, hunt mushrooms, fish, pick berries? Or perhaps a performance, gallery exhibit or music scene? So much to do here! Friendly locals at Pangaea will give you lots of choices and favorite stories to go with those. Or stop into Kevin's for a great burger or home-style meal. Powers Market makes healthy lunches - panini, wraps, home-baked goodies, fancy coffees. The library is a half-block walk. Enjoy beautiful village walks in any direction. Bennington College has a gorgeous open campus and events. Lake Paran is a very peaceful, beautiful scene just down the road. The Park McCullough House has formal and casual gardens as well as walking trails frequented by villagers and visitors. Bennington is just a few miles away and has a great variety of shops, venues and restaurants. Williamstown, MA to the south and Manchester to the north are 30 minutes away. Mass MoCA is close by too.

Getting Around

This is a walking village, however you will need a car to get to it and then to enjoy the greater Bennington scene. Until November 1 when snow season begins, 24 hour parking is available on the street right in front of the house. After that date, there is overnight parking available in the lot behind the firehouse which is beside the house. It is accessible from the gravel service road beside my parking area or from the other side on Prospect at the waterfall. Parking in front of the house is otherwise okay all day and early evening, no matter the season.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
