Destination North Bennington Vermont
Vermont Arts Exchange in North Bennington hosts its last show of the season’s Basement Music Series. One of the top shows of last year, Ethan Lipton and his Orchestra, returns this Sat. May 8th! Truly a great act, a unique blend of exceptional musical talent, wise lyrics and humor. This small coffee house setting offers an intimate evening of live music in a former North BenningtonVermont factory turned art space by Matthew Perry & Patricia Pedreira. Ethan Lipton and his Orchestra offers a great way to spend Saturday night in Southern Vermont.
North Bennington also offers live entertainment at Kevin’s Sports Pub and Restaurant on weekends. Kevin’s is just three buildings north of Eddington House bed and breakfast. It’s also a great place to grab a bite before the show at VAE. Or you might sit out on the deck at Pangaea Lounge, another great dining establishment, just steps from the inn.
One of the beauties of North Bennington Vermont is that it is an easy walk from our bed and breakfast to dinner at your choice of restaurants and you also can select from two venues of live entertainment…all in this quaint Vermont village.

May in Vermont
Things really come alive in Southern Vermont during the month of May. It’s a great month for a getaway to a Vermont bed and breakfast whether you are looking for a little romance, a little culture or a getaway with your Mom or girlfriends.
The Bennington area will see the re-opening of the Park McCullough Historic Estate in charming North Bennington Village, just around the corner from the Eddington House Inn. Stroll from our bed and breakfast to take the house tour of Historic Park McCullough. The docents are very knowledgeable and the house is a real jewel. It is fully furnished and looks like the family may have just stepped out for tea and never returned. The thirty-five room Park-McCullough House was completed in 1865 for Trenor and Laura Park. This elegant lifestyle and summer home was made possible through vast wealth accumulated during the California Gold Rush era.
Adjacent to Park McCullough you’ll find a wonderful system of trails – Mile Around Woods. You discover wildflowers, beautiful views and peace and tranquility. This trail system is a short walk from the Eddington House Inn bed and breakfast.
Plan a Spring getaway to a Vermont bed and breakfast. You’ll be blown away by the gardens and beautiful scenery.
