Southern Vermont for Foodies
Late August/early September is a great time for foodies in Southern Vermont. You can enjoy picking apples at Terry’s Orchard in Bennington. Apples fresh from the tree bear no similarity to those at the supermarket. Picking tomatoes at the Moses Family Farm (yes, Grama Moses ) in nearby New York State….just 15 minutes from the Eddington House Inn is also a delight. Moses Farm is famous in our region for its sugar sweet corn on the cob. The Farm is in a great setting and the tomatoes (at an astoundingly budget friendly price if you pick yourselves) are just like candy; sweet and luscious. Top it off with some great fresh baked bread from the Crazy Russian Girl’s Bakery in downtown Bennington and some Vermont Cheddar from Henry’s Market on Route 9 in Bennington or fresh locally made Mozzarella from Maplebrook Farm just minutes from our bed and breakfast. What a divine treat for the foodie in you!

Just minutes away from the Eddington House Inn you’ll find the Moses Family Farm which is famous in this area for their sweet corn. An additional bonus this time of year is that the farm opens fields of tomatoes for picking.
The views are fantastic, the fields are full of fabulous tomatoes, the picking is clean and easy and the price is right. You can purchase a half bushel basket at the farm stand or entrance to the fields and will be directed to the best field to pick that day. This turkey (it was HUGE) was wandering the farm on my last visit so I snapped his picture. A visit to Moses Farm is a great adventure and the tomatoes are as sweet as candy.
I always go several times each season…it’s less than 30 minutes from our Southern Vermont inn located just of route 67 in nearby New York State. I serve tomatoes at breakfast, and enjoy them in salads, cut up with a sandwich, in a blt, in salsas, tomato sauce, gazpacho, etc. etc.
Tomato picking is a MUST this season if you are visiting Southern Vermont and “driving” home. What a treat!!

Vermont – Home of Robert Frost
Just up the street from the our Vermont bed and breakfast in North Bennington Village you’ll find Lake Paran, beyond Lake Paran you’ll find the Robert Frost Stone House Museum. The Robert Frost Stone House Museum is located in Shaftsbury Vermont on Route 7A and opened in 2002. Frost lived in the Stone House in South Shaftsbury, Vermont from 1920 to 1929. Here, Frost composed many of the pieces that became part of his first Pulitzer Prize winning volume New Hampshire, published in 1923, including “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.”
The exhibits are educational and literary covering Frost’s life and art. They are designed to make you feel as if you met him. The grounds of the property are complete with many images that evoke Frost’s poetry including stone walls, birch trees, fields and woods and even some of Frost’s original apple trees.
You’ll find Robert Frost’s final resting place in the cemetery directly behind the Old First Church in Old Bennington. Old Bennington is a short drive from our bed and breakfast in North Bennington Village, Vermont and can be reached by traversing some Vermont covered bridges and by way of the Bennington Battle Monument. It’s a lovely drive past Park McCullough Estate, over 3 covered bridges, past Bennington Battle Monument, by some beautiful colonial homes and finally into the center of Old Bennington.
A visit to Robert Frost’s home and gravesite are just a few of many things to do on your getaway to our Vermont bed and breakfast inn.

The Green Mountains of Vermont are getting greener by the day! Yes, Spring is here at the Eddington House Inn Bed and Breakfast. Like Camelot, it rained overnight and we woke to florescent green lawns and new Spring gardens of tulips, daffodils and the start of our perennial garden here in North Bennington.
Wow, I love Spring…with it comes great Vermont hikes, beautiful gardens, concerts in the park, the opening of ALL of Bennington’s museums and warmer weather – just right for sitting on the porch of our bed and breakfast or the inn’s Adirondack chairs. Spring is a great time to experience our Relax & Unwind Spa Package at our Vermont Bed and Breakfast.
