Overview

About the property

Secluded country cottage on 15 private acres of land including a private lake.

This is a recently built 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. The cottage sits on a private 1.5 acre pond with diverse wildlife, wetlands, waterfall and covered bridge. Open floor plan with an upstairs bedroom that overlooks the lake. 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.

We are 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, outdoor grill, cable, WiFi, living/dining area and large porch. Stairs lead to a second floor loft-style bedroom which overlooks the first floor and lake via a large picture window (note that the bathroom is downstairs). This was designed as a luxury accommodation for a romantic weekend getaway, but could easily accommodate up to four with use of a sleeper sofa. There is simply no other vacation home of this quality and character in Southern Vermont.

About Adam and Beverly Cohen

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 and Beverly Cohen purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Adam and Beverly Cohen chose North Bennington

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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 truly unique and special location. The front porch overlooks the lake and is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the evening with friends and family. While it is quiet and private, you can easily walk to the store across the street from our entrance for groceries.

Cottage is perfect and location is lovely

Great spot to relax and enjoy the quiet. The cabin is cozy and so romantic. A perfect setting for the three of us, my husband, Cooper (my dog), and me. We all had a wonderful time. Joan

Wonderful Getaway

This place was incredible - perfect quiet getaway spot to enjoy a few days. Great little town closeby, but we just enjoyed ourselves secluded at this little cottage!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful, lovely cottage - we didn’t want to leave! We loved sitting on the porch looking out over the lake - especially after it snowed. It was so cool how everything had it’s spot and there was a notebook with recommendations for anything you could think of! We would highly recommended!!!

As advertised

  • 4 of 5

Needed linens (there was only one bath towel and no towels in the kitchen) and had to make our own bed but otherwise, a beautiful cabin in a perfect location.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the valuable feedback! We are truly sorry about the linens. We provide a full set of linens and towels, three-per-guest. We personally make and check the baskets and a housekeeper delivers them when she cleans. We have no idea what went wrong here. Guests in the past have requested that we leave the linens and not make the bed. I assume that this is in order to verify that they are fresh linens? Maybe check the mattress or maybe because they prefer to use their own. Either way we plan to change the policy and start making the bed again!
