Located in the Southern corner of Vermont, Bennington is a charming small town defined by the lush green mountains surrounding it. The town’s nature has served as inspiration for poets and artists like Robert Frost, Grandma Moses, and Norman Rockwell. Today, inspiration still awaits at this Northeastern getaway destination.
Top things to do include visiting the top of the Bennington Battle Monument, which is the tallest structure in Vermont, attending a Sunday service at Vermont’s first Protestant Church, the Old First Church, and touring the Park-McCullough historic Victorian home in North Bennington. For hiking, climb up the summit of the Appalachian Trail to witness a stunning view of Bennington, and visit Stratton Mountain in the winter months for world class skiing.
Your best bet for lodging in Bennington is a classic bed and breakfast that demonstrates New England hospitality. The Eddington House Inn is a B&B gem, named a 2014 Yankee Editor’s Pick for “Best Small B&B.” For a more spacious suite with pasture views, Taraden Bed & Breakfast is the way to go. Elsewhere, set on an 18th-century property, the now restored Four Chimneys Inn would be your ideal choice for a stay that brings you back in time.
Bennington is a 4 season town with activities for all of the Seasons. The warmest time of year is early to mid-July where highs are regularly around 83 degrees, perfect for a round of golf. Meanwhile, the winter months are snowy enough for world class skiing.
For a classic American experience, grab a seat at Madison Brewing Company Pub & Restaurant, a two-level pub with 14 of its own brews on tap, and a menu that features sandwiches and burgers, as well as steak, meatloaf, salads and pasta.
