The Safford Mills Inn and Café offers the ambiance of the past with the modern amenities of today. Because we are accommodations & aperitifs, included as part of your stay, we offer a complimentary Check-in social hour from 3-6 which includes wine, beer and some light appetizers. We provide this as a unique alternative to breakfast. And located just next door to the Inn is our Dinner Club & Lounge, The Miller's Toll, open every weekend, offering tapas, craft cocktails, beer, wine & desserts, with live entertainment on Saturdays. All of our guests receive 20% off their bill from the lounge. Conveniently located within walking distance of downtown Bennington, we are close to shopping, restaurants and local historic attractions. Make us your evening destination where you can unwind in our cozy common rooms before you retire for the evening.

We live just a few miles away but wanted to take a night away without the travel. This was perfect. It was like walking into another world. John was super attentive and the drinks were superb. We walked to Allegro for dinner and it was such a treat to not worry about drinking wine and walking back. Very comfortable. I love the unique take on B&B. Fantastic business model. We will definitely do this again!

No breakfast here, but evening drinks and snacks were a great substitute. Well priced option for the south Vermont area.

Beautiful, clean room just three blocks from Bennington's business district. My only problem with the room was that it had no reading lamp. The lighting was perfect for a romantic getaway, however. Definitely recommended.

My wife and I stopped here overnight on our way to Stratton Mountain we checked late, the owner was very nice, made us feel very comfortable. Rooms are cozy and very welcoming. He made us drinks to cap off our night, it's not a typical B&B instead it's a place for night people like us who love late check outs and late night drinks. Definitely staying here again!
