Tour Historic Bennington Vermont on your bed and breakfast getaway.
No trip to the Bennington area is complete without a visit to the Bennington Battle Monument. The Bennington Battle Monument, dedicated to the famous Battle of Bennington that took place during the Revolutionary war in 1777, is a 306′ stone obelisk opened to the public in 1891. It is located north of VT Rte 9, about 4 miles east of the New York border. A guided elevator takes visitors to the observation floor for spectacular views of Historic Bennington and three states.
Enjoy the 10 minute driving tour from our Vermont bed and breakfast to the Bennington Battle Monument. You’ll pass Park McCullough Mansion, a Christmas tree farm, travel over 3 Vermont covered bridges to your destination in Old Bennington Village.
The Bennington Battle Monument with is fabulous views is open to the public from April to October so there is still time to plan your Eddington House Inn getaway.

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.

Let it snow…..
Snow is falling today outside our Vermont bed and breakfast…yes, in April. I’m not sure how much they got on the mountains but yesterday I could see that the Green Mountains were covered.
Killington will be happy because they are still open for downhill skiing and perhaps this will help prolong their ski season. Cross country skiers, please don’t get too excited, I think you will have to wait for winter to come back to ski or snowshoe here in Vermont. Check out our Cross Country Ski Package at Prospect Mountain for winter 2010/2011.
Our tulips are looking a bit sad, but they are used to this kind of treatment here in Southern Vermont. Ah well, SPRING will be back at the Eddington House Inn Bed and Breakfast by this weekend. Temperatures are to be in the 70’s here in North Bennington, Vermont.

Live entertainment in North Bennington…just around the corner from our Southern Vermont bed and breakfast.
Howard Fishman returns tonight to North Bennington for his 6th annual appearance at the Basement Music Series just down the street from our Vermont bed and breakfast at the Vermont Arts Exchange. This composer, guitarist, singer and his band put on a fabulous show. Joining him is one of our favorites – Mazz Swift, of Brazztree. We have had the fortune of hosting Mazz here at the Eddington House Inn on many occasions. She is a remarkable person as well as an amazing musician with her soulful voice and incredible skill with the violin. Howard Fishman always plays to a sold out crowd in North Bennington..what a night!
Please check out some of the other great events at VAE. What a treat to have these live performances in a coffee house setting just a block from our Vermont bed and breakfast.

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.
