I recently took a trip to Bennington, Vermont and it was great. The weather was hot but none of the rain that threatened actually materialized.
We stayed at a really nice B&B, the Eddington Inn, in North Bennington. The owner, Patti, is a super hostess. She served a great breakfast and there are also some snacks out all day for guests to nibble on. When we arrived she showed us a few places we could go to eat for dinner and said she would be happy to help us with anything we needed, anytime during our stay. The next morning she was full of sightseeing tips. It seems whatever any of her guests are up to Patti has some helpful advice to offer. Places to see in either North Bennington or Bennington, hiking trails around town or in the mountains, biking routes, places to shop or whatever. My wife and I were interesting in Bennington and a bit of hiking. We ended up with a few sets of directions to and from where we needed to go, and some copies of information about two different hiking trails that had trailheads just outside of town. We could get to and from Bennington along a nice scenic route, along a way that would take us through three covered bridges or another way that was just quick and easy. Two other guests that were eating breakfast with us were interested in biking. They ended up with a few suggested biking routes.
My wife and I would happily return to the Eddington House if we come to visit the Bennington area again. We will also recommend the place to anyone that wants to enjoy a nice, relaxing stay in a wonderful Bed and Breakfast.
