About Gail & David O'Brien

We are David and Gail O'Brien. David retired in August 2013 and Gail closed her office that was housed in this building for two years. We decided to return it to the lovely home it had been previous to our purchase and make it available to you, our guests as you visit the southwest corner of VT. We are life long Vermonters and have lived in this area for 35 years. We hope you will enjoy visiting this wonderful part of Vermont, it has so much to offer.

Gail & David O'Brien purchased this house in 2011

Why Gail & David O'Brien chose Southwestern Vermont

It has location, location, location. So close to everything yet tucked into a quiet corner lot. It is clean, warm, and comfortable. Several guests have said that they felt at home the moment they walked in the door.

What makes this house unique

Extra room can be used for exercising, office space, or bedroom for small children. There is a nice secluded backyard and a patio porch with outside seating and lovely perennial gardens. We are adjacent to the Vernmont Veterans Home property that has green space for walking. And best of all we are right across the street from the famous Bennington landmark , the Blue Benn Diner!

Lots of bang for your buck

  • 5 of 5

We decided to get a way for a New Years ski weekend at the last minute, but weren't able to find anything right on the slopes. The Bennington Garden Cottage came up on a search, and we are very pleased it did! It's situated in a little neighborhood, and walking distance to a few restaurants and art galleries. Our main focus was skiing, so we drove to Mt Snow each day (very easy and scenic 42 min drive).

The cottage was very clean and felt like home. We were able to cook great dinners in the kitchen, and enjoyed playing some of the games with the kids (Tabu, and Jenga).

Overall, was a great value! We would return for sure.

Cozy and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Great little home! We stayed in the cottage over the long Thanksgiving weekend and couldn't have asked for anything more. It was comfortable and very clean, and had everything we needed to prepare a small and low-key feast for our little family. We loved how convenient it was to everything in town. Additionally, the owners were incredibly responsive and helpful, letting us borrow some baby gear for our stay, and even mailing us some items that we left in the home. We hope to visit again someday.

Very cozy home with comfortable beds. Everything you need is in the home so no worries about having to bring extra stuff with you. Right in the middle of Bennington yet quite. Would definitely stay again!!

Peaceful, centrally located, spacious place in Bennington

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding place! Very comfortable, with maximum privacy for our teen traveling with us, wonderful kitchen, and screened-in porch area that afforded us plenty of ways to enjoy our stay without being on top of each other! Nice wood paneling, and the dining room was a great workspace/ reading area. The bathroom was wonderful, clean, with organic cotton towels and nice fixtures. Very nice to have a flat screen for Democratic convention-watching. Easy parking, and very quiet! We couldn't have been happier.
