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!

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.

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Gail and Dave where quick to respond to my request to stay at their beautiful home. My daughter was hospitalized and I needed immediate travel plans, quickly responded and even offered to get us some groceries for our arrival! The house was clean and very comfortable with everything we needed. The location is great! Good restaurants within walking distance and a straight driving shot to Bennington College and The Clark Art Institute. The property is nicely landscaped and very private, as it is set back from the road. I would highly recommend this rental and will definitely go back!

Garden Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a 3 night stay over Valentine's /Presidents weekend. Bitter cold temperatures for our stay, but the cottage was toasty warm and so comfortable. Very convenient - super clean- and well equipped kitchen. Thank you for a relaxing weekend. Location is great - very quiet neighborhood - was just too cold to walk into town!
