This is a newly built (2013) cottage located on 15 private, wooded acres of land on the border of Bennington and North Bennington in Southwest Vermont. Designed and constructed by the owner and a close friend, care has gone into every detail of this beautiful and peaceful location. The property is quiet and secluded, but close to all of the local activities and attractions. It features a private 1.5 acre pond with diverse wildlife, wetlands, waterfall and covered bridge. The cottage is loft style with an upstairs bedroom that overlooks the pond. It can accommodate an additional two guests with a downstairs sleeper sofa. Our home is about 200 yards away, across the pond and stream, but blocked from view most of the year by foliage.
The cottage is located within 30 minutes of multiple regional attractions which include Williams College, Williamstown/North Adams museums, Manchester Center, the Green Mountains and Woodford State Park, and historic sites within Bennington itself. We are walking distance from grocery and Bennington College, and less than 3 miles from village shops and the Bennington Monument. It is also a short drive to several local ski and summer-sports resorts.
The cottage offers every modern amenity - a full kitchen, cable, WiFi, living/dining area and large porch. Stairs lead to a second floor loft-style bedroom which overlooks the first floor and pond via a large picture window. This was designed as a luxury cottage for a romantic weekend getaway, but could easily accommodate up to four with comfort.
Adam and Beverly Cohen moved to Bennington in 2004 from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for work at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center. Adam is originally from Queens, NY and Beverly is originally from Newcastle, Pennsylvania. Our main house is in a different location on the same property. We live here with our dog and have invested our lives into restoring and preserving this beautiful property.
Adam Cohen purchased this cottage in 2004
We fell in love with this location because while it is located close to Bennington town it is also private and quiet. The property is beautiful, featuring a large pond stocked with trout and frequented by eagles and blue herons. The outlet stream features a covered bridge and waterfall. There is a vibrant wildlife community that makes a home of the pond and adjacent wetlands.
I designed and built this cottage personally with a friend in 2013 to be a beautiful retreat for friends and family to come visit. In the times that we are not personally hosting, we thought that others might enjoy the use of our cottage. It is a romantic and private place. It has a front porch that overlooks the pond and is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the evening with friends. While it is quiet and private, you can literally walk to the store across the street from our entrance for groceries, if desired. The rental also features free Wi-Fi and basic cable.
The place was perfect, isolated but close to town. Great property with some great views.
This home was very comfortable and very private. It's private, but yet close enough to stores and restaurants that you are not away from anything. The property is beautiful. Even though there is another house across the pond, the way that this cottage is set up, it stays totally private,,,,,even in the winter. We had a great time staying here. This home is equipped with everything that you need for your stay. I can't wait to book for a weekend in the spring.
There is nothing bad that you can say about this little cottage. It was perfect for our weekend getaway. It was furnished with pretty much everything you could need. It is tucked away just far away in the woods to give you that perfect secluded feeling, yet extremely close to town with many restaurants/bars, and other attractions to visit. Perfect for our romantic weekend away!
Can't wait to come back!
Delightful weekend. Thanks so much for opening you lovely home to us!
We spent 15 days on the road visiting several places in Vermont and New Hampshire. Stayed at 4 different places with one being this wonderful cottage in Bennington. Getting off the road, pulling into the very private, long, driveway you immediately feel as if you're secluded somewhere in God's country and yet only minutes from town and the many great things to do. The cottage was awesome! Well maintained, modern, bright, on a property with a nice small lake and communications with the owners was superb! The ONLY negative comment, a suggestion really, is that a larger flat screen TV would be nice with some DVD playing capability. Saturday & Sunday football you know! We'd recommend this cottage to all. Way to go on this one.....
The property is adjacent to the entrance of Bennington College - walking distance - and only a few miles from Southern Vermont College. A short drive to local ski resorts including Prospect Mountain, Mount Snow, Bromley and Stratton. There are many nearby hiking trails. The outlet stores of Manchester are a 25 minute drive away. Historic sites such as the Bennington Battlefield, Bennington Monument, Park McCullough House and the Hildene (family residence of Abraham Lincoln) are all within close proximity. Do not miss a trip to the top of Mount Equinox for fantastic views spring-fall.
