Breathtaking.After driving a half mile up the lane through the white birch to the stately manor

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Vermont. We both feel we picked the right place to stay. Not only did we wonder where the billboards were, we wondered where the strip centers were and the people were? The biggest thing we enjoyed missing the most was the noise. Vermont was a completely different place but it was a very tremendously beautiful nice place. The only bad thing about it was we did not stay in our cottage long enough. The "serenity" has a good name. It brought peace into our life and our stay. We will surely come back if we get a chance. I recommend this place to anybody. While we ate our breakfast the deers ate there's off the apple trees in the back. We took walks around the 20 acres enjoying the stunning beauty of the trees that were transferring colors on the mountains. I spent 20 years in the south and our owners treated us with southern hospitality, if anyone knows what that is, it's genuine. If you get your chance come enjoy the tranquil calm of your stay. Guaranteed no regrets

Fantastic Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing stay and the name is dead on, "Serenity" was everything we had hoped it to be. This cottage, while "just" a one bedroom, is bright, cheery, well sized and immaculate. We never felt like we were tripping over each other. Windows everywhere to take in the views and daylight. The bay window in the bedroom offered a great wake up view overlooking over the hollow. Two porches to enjoy, one covered, so even if the weather isn't cooperating you can still enjoy the outdoors. Perfectly located within a comfortable walk to Dorset, but still off the beaten path enough to provide peace and quiet. If you need some diversions, a short drive gets you to everything Manchester has to offer.

This place is perfect! Thanks Dianne for making it available to us!

Peaceful perfection!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our 4 day trip to Vermont and beautiful Dorset. This cottage is the perfect spot for time away from the hubbub of daily life...it is calm, quiet, surrounded by trees and wildlife. Our older dog Bree loved it as well, no stairs in front so easy to get around and we loved having 2 decks to choose from depending on the time of day. Everything we needed was available, comfortable bedding, entire cottage very clean and well appointed, very thoughtfully decorated. AC available but not needed due to mountain breezes, beautiful fireplace which alas, was too warm outside to put to use. This home is wonderful for a romantic getaway, time to relax, unwind, read, take walks and a great jumping off point if you would like to do some sightseeing. We hope we get to come and stay again in the future, and cannot say enough good things about how at home you feel as soon as you walk through the door. Thanks so much Dianne for allowing us to experience the peace this cottage creates for your soul...

A wonderful vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at the cottage! The views are stunning -- we couldn't decide whether to sit on the front porch, the back deck, or in the gazebo. We felt like we were away from it all even though everything we needed was close by. Robin and Dianne are very gracious hosts. We hope to go back again!
