Mid-July stay at Monument House
I came to Bennington VT for my daughter’s wedding. The weather was warm (mid eighties) and the house stayed cool. My guests and I used open windows and fans at night to stay comfortable. We rarely used the available AC units. The house is a lovely period home (1920/30’s) with all modern conveniences (WiFi printer with scanner was a nice surprise). Lucy has considered every need (that I had). Bathrooms were bright, cheerful, clean and well equipped. We spent a lot of time on the porch and strolling the gardens - lovely. I would recommend this home to anyone seeking a peaceful, tranquil setting. Also, the location is very convenient to both Bennington and N. Bennington. The neighborhood offers some pleasant strolls or good runs.
We are so happy that Monument House was home base for your family wedding. Monument House is well placed for the many activities Bennington and the Shires of Vermont have to offer. It is centrally located to downtown and North Bennington, yet it is a quiet oasis, especially on the porch or down by the barn and lower garden. We strive to have modern conveniences while maintaining the feel of 1828 house. We hope you return soon!
Yes, this house truly is superlative -- beyond comfortable with many thoughtful, personal touches; meticulously well-kept; situated on a beautiful, extensive piece of ground; and welcoming to our 4-legged family members. Lucy, the owner, is very kind and accessible and has many suggestions to maximize the local area experience; and her local agent is equally responsive.
Our family wanted a quiet week to recharge and that is exactly what this house delivered. We stayed the week between Christmas and New Year and had a great time hiking locally, cross-country skiing at Wild Wings near Manchester, and enjoying down-time with board games and reading. We split meals between local restaurants and cooking in the exceptionally well-equipped kitchen -- the Crock Pot Slow/Instant Cooker is awesome!
The house is historic so it has its quirks but that adds to the charm -- loved those wide-plank floors and the secret passage staircase. The wifi is good, the beds are comfortable, and the linens and towels are of very good quality. And there's plenty of room. Despite having the option of a heated bedroom, our daughter chose to sleep on the sleeping porch; she had a space heater and electric blankets and loved it -- even in 25 degree weather. The main level bedroom was cool and quiet, and our sons were comfortable in their room with the upstairs TV viewing space.
We would happily return to this house. I would love to see the gardens when they are in bloom. If you are fortunate enough to rent this property, you will not regret it.
Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure and honor to host you and your family for the New Year. We would love to have you stay with us again - anytime!
One of my favorite vacations ever!
I absolutely adored every moment of the precious time I spent at Lucy’s beautiful home on Monument Ave. I found the house to be wonderfully nostalgic; full of history, memories, and a vibrant sense of connection to the village. Loved perusing the library—fellow old book lovers will definitely want to plan a shopping trip to DogEars Book Barn, which is just 10 minutes down the road.
The house sits on a stunning piece of land (just a walk down to the end of the property is a treat in itself) with beautifully tended gardens, a huge maple tree to read under, a tranquil view, and a huge swath of endless grass for my dog to play on! We both really loved every minute and can’t wait to return, which I would not hesitate to do in any season of the year—thank you Lucy for your incredible hospitality; I loved swapping corgi pictures :)
All in all, the property was amazing. I was a little afraid of breaking something as much of the house was aged, with all modern conveniences though. The location was great and the host was most gracious and helpful at all times!
Thank you, Maureen, for your kind words. It was a pleasure to host my neighbor’s new family in laws for the wedding festivities. You were delightful guests. All the best to you and the bride!
Beautiful antique, perfectly maintained and spotless. Wonderful owner.
We had a great week at Monument House. It is a beautiful house on a beautiful street with other historic homes. Everything we needed was there--the house was very thoughtfully outfitted and absolutely spotless when we arrived. The back covered porch and grounds were a delight, and we spent many hours relaxing there. We felt completely welcome. There were binders containing very helpful information and pamphlets about the area. Also, the owner, Lucy, was a terrific long-distance host, and provided much valuable and appreciated guidance on sights to see and things to do. She also checked up on us periodically to be sure we had everything we needed. I can't say enough positive things about this experience. I was sorry to leave and would go back in a second. Thank you Lucy!!
I am blushing with your praise! My desire is to create a home where you are able to enjoy family time and build wonderful memories.
It was fun to share things to do in the area, such as the Museum of Dog. I hope you found some of the poodle paraphernalia at Monument House too. I want to find out where you went tubing. Sounds like the prefect way to beat the heat!
Arlene and family are fantastic guests, the house was left in perfect condition. I hope to have you all return sometime soon! Lucy
Peaceful and Pleasant
Lucy's home is comfortable and welcoming. The location is convenient to Bennington shops, restaurants, museums and is very walkable. Seeing the Bennington Monument from the backyard was an added bonus. We spent most of our time on the back porch; the view is gorgeous: gardens and mountains! The neighborhood is peaceful and quiet.
Thank you for your wonderful review and choosing Monument House for your family time in Bennington. It is a special honor to host a Bennington family. We are happy to share our home as a place where families can make wonderful memories. And I agree, the porch is a perfect spot! We hope you return for another visit!
