Nice B&D

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

Excellent Experience

Beautiful room

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.

Excellent accommodations

Very cozy

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!

Just Wonderful
