Bennington house description

Bennington Trail Retreat

This bright and sunny 3 bedroom brook-side country cottage with 2 bedroom guest house on 13 acres in the Monadnock region sleeps 6-12 comfortably. The house is simply but comfortably furnished with everything you need while away from home. In winter, hike, x-country ski, or snowmobile from the front door. In summer, listen to the babbling brook from the large screened-in wrap-around porches, private deck, or spacious yard, or swim in beautiful Lake Whittemore a short walk away. The house is located at the beginning of the Bennington Trail, giving access to many beautiful hiking trails, several that take you to the summit of Crotched Mountain.

The house is ideally located within 5 miles of skiing or golfing at Crotched Mountain and kayaking or fishing on the Contoocook River, Powdermill Pond, or Otter Lake in Greenfield State Park. Peterborough and its many recreational and cultural attractions is only 20 minutes away, while Mount Monadnock and the city of Keene are both a short 45 minute drive.

The house is equipped with two kayaks, lawn games like croquet, beach toys and chairs, sleds, cross country skis, and games for your use.
