Bennington College Visits

Posted on: March 17th, 2014 by Patti Eddington

Spring is just around the corner, the snow in North Bennington Village is melting and students from all over the world are arriving for tours of Bennington College. Many young people are seeing Bennington for the first time while others are taking a second look, sitting in on some classes and even spending an overnight on campus. The Eddington House Inn’s location just a couple of blocks from the college make the ideal spot for families touring the campus.

Spring is also the time for student presentations and performances and parents love the easy access from the inn to campus. The Eddington House offers a Midweek College visit rate of $109 per night for visiting families. Suzie’s two room suite offers an adjacent room with a twin and a rollaway – that accommodates 3 for $149. As always, rates include a full breakfast and afternoon refreshments.

The Eddington House is also in close proximity to SVC (10 minutes) and Williams College (30 minutes). Hope to see you soon.

Maple Syrup Season

Many of our guests this time of year are families visiting Bennington College and we offer a special rate to families on the college tour. Another great reason to come to Vermont in March is to enjoy VERMONT Maple Syrup. From now until March 31 we are offering a $109 rate for ALL midweek Suites (mention MAPLE109- new reservations only) .

Yes, March is sugaring season and our local sugar houses are boiling that collected sap into yummy maple syrup. This time of year you can visit some sugar houses, learn about the process and taste Vermont’s special treat. To learn more visit http://www.benningtonmaple.org/

Here at the Eddington House, Vermont Maple Syrup is a staple. One of my favorite uses of this wonderful sweetener is to mix a little maple syrup with Cabot Greek Yogurt and then layer in a wine glass with your favorite fruits…YUM.


College Visits – Bennington College, Williams & SVC

Posted on: April 27th, 2011 by Patti Eddington

May 1st is rapidly approaching and it is the deadline for Fall 2011 college decision making for high school seniors.  The Eddington House Inn has been  ”hopping” this spring with students visiting nearby Bennington College, Southern Vermont College & Williams.  Accepted students and their families have filled our Vermont bed and breakfast over the last couple of months, while students take classes and families check out the Bennington community and surrounding Southern Vermont area.  We have also seen many high school juniors just beginning the college tour process.

Since the Eddington House Inn is walkable to the village entrance of  Bennington College we are a natural lodging choice for Bennington College visits.  We are only 10 minutes from SVC and 30 minutes from Williams.

Suzie’s room & adjacent room, the Village Nook are our most popular room choices as the student gets his/her room with a twin bed, desk, window seat and tv.  Our suites can easily accommodate 3 with a rollaway bed.

To help ease the pain of college tuition, we offer a Special College Midweek Rate of $99 per room, based on double occupancy (Valid February- May, midweek non-holiday).  This rate includes a full breakfast, afternoon refreshments and endless desserts.

With just a few days to make a decision, I wish all the best of luck to you college bound students and hope to see a few of you back as neighbors.
