About Eleanor Twardy
Retired Registered Nurse loving living in Vermont and all it has to offer. Love the lifestyle of Vermont, the quaintness, the back country roads and all the people. Great place to grow up and enjoy life.
Eleanor Twardy purchased this Barn in 1982
Why Eleanor Twardy chose Bennington
Very unique barn apartment lovingly renovated for comfort and the feel of home. Wonderful location to see many of the sites Vermont has to offer like covered bridges, museums, ski resorts, colleges, Vermont Country Store, Mass Moca, and much more only a short distance away. Come tour some of our back country roads for a great scenery of rock walls and old farm houses and some old school houses here and there. Maple syrup is our thriving business and visit some of the "sugar shacks". We even have some restaurants that charge for the "fake stuff" if you you don't want "real Maple Syrup". Love the lifestyle and love Vermont!
What makes this Barn unique
Great location and a unique setting with many of the comforts of your own home added for that personal touch. There is even a nice deck out back with a grill and a place to enjoy your meal.

Beautiful and Cozy
We had a wonderful weekend at the Guest Barn. Despite the subzero temps outside, we stayed warm and cozy inside. It was easy to make ourselves at home with the full kitchen and comfortable living room. The bedrooms were large and there were quilts on every bed. The bathroom was clean and modern. Easy access to sights in Bennington. Highly recommend!
Thanks for your great review. We do strive to make the place seem "just like home" and continue to add "features" to keep it as such. It was a pleasure to have you and thanks for taking such great care of the place. You are more than welcome anytime.
Perfect Couples Getaway
This was a very warm, inviting well appointed VRBO stay. Everything was clean and neat and the kitchen was well-stocked. Very comfortable for 1, 2 or even 3 couples. Great area with lots of things to do including Robert Frost Museum, Hildene, Skyline Drive on Mt. Equinox and great dining options. Highly recommend staying here!
