Looking for a Spring Getaway
Opening March 4 through May 30, the Bennington Museum features Bennington Collects IV- The Curated Edition including works by Paul Feeley, Carl Ruggles and Asahel Powers. Bennington Collects IV is a regional-based exhibit that features an eclectic mix of art and historic artifacts that might make you stop and think about what it is you have been collecting. , This exhibit will feature objects collected by residents of Bennington County and the surrounding area, ranging from cobalt decorated stoneware made in Bennington during the nineteenth century to photographs by some of the 20th-century’s most celebrated photographers. Each collection will tell about the collection, how it got started and why it continued, as well as the feeling it brings to the collector.
Any time of year is a wonderful time to visit the Bennington Museum. From the museum’s permanent collection, items such as Bennington Pottery, the 1924 Wasp Touring Car, Fine Art, Vermont Furniture, and the Bennington Flag – one of America’s oldest flags are always on view.
The museum is open every day except Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and open 7 days a week in September and October. Admission for Adults is $10.
In addition to the Bennington Museum, you might want to take a self guided tour of world renowned Bennington Potters, open 7 days a week or tour the automobilia at Hemmings Motor News Car Lover’s Oasis.
Don’t forget the Spa and of course shopping for antiques at Camelot Village. Ah, yes Southern Vermont is a great getaway anytime of year.

Southern Vermont Midweek Getaway
Sun, Sun, Sun….after many cloudy and snow filled days this winter, we are now experiencing our second day of sun. Great for skiing, snowshoeing or just relaxing inside with a good book while the light filters through the windows.
Due to the overwhelming positive response to our Midweek Winter Dinner Package we have extended it through April….hopefully our tulips & daffodils will be in bloom by then. This package includes 2 nights lodging, breakfast each day, dinner one evening at Kevin’s, dinner one evening at Pangaea Lounge, afternoon refreshments daily and of course endless desserts. Rate is $349 per couple for the two night stay.
It’s a great time to escape the ho hum of winter at home and treat yourself to a Vermont Getaway. You can’t beat the short walk to dinner since both restaurants are within a block of the inn. Escape to Vermont before this special ends on April 30!

Don’t miss the leaves in Southern Vermont
The Bennington area is still brightly showing its fall colors. I have been directing guests to three of my favorite spots….Monument Avenue, Southern Vermont College and Carpenter Hill. Since high school I have been taking drives along the ridge of Mt Anthony and taking in the amazing views from the Everett Mansion and the panaramic views along Carpenter Hill Road. Monument Avenue is still ablaze and the view from the Bennington Battle Monument is a treat.
Brilliant yellows and oranges still create a patchwork quilt effect along Mt Anthony and the views from the top of the hill are breathtaking.
Thought skiing is not far off (our neighboring mountains have already received snow)fall foliage is still present in Bennington and Pownal valley.
Hope to see you soon.

Autumn in Vermont
The Bennington area boasts some gorgeous autumn drives. Nestled between the Taconic range in New York and the Green Mountain range in Vermont, Southern Vermont is the perfect place to experience fall foliage.
The drive through Old Bennington with its stately colonial homes and tree covered street to the Bennington Battle Monument has always been one of my favorites. Drive south past the Old First Church down Monument Avenue and climb Mt. Anthony (in your car) to breathtakingly beautiful Southern Vermont College. The mansion, the courtyard, the grounds and the views are spectacular.
Return down the College road to your right and follow Monument Avenue to where it meets Route 7, take a sharp right onto Carpenter Hill- the home of Southern Vermont Orchards. Apples, Ponds and VIEWS of the valley below…..it can’t be beat and only 10 minutes from the Eddington House in North Bennington Village.
Stay tuned for more fall drives and scenic views in the Bennington Vermont area..only 3 hours from Boston or New York.
