You remember Kevin’s – our neighborhood cheers-like pub just up the street from the Eddington House that offers its patrons great food at reasonable prices as well as the best burgers in the Universe AND live entertainment on weekends with no cover charge.

Many of you have met Kevin and have returned to the inn with a satisfied tummy, a smile, his signature Hershey kisses and sometimes even a complimentary Kevin’s pint glass.

Kevin’s kind heart is well known throughout Southern Vermont. He has offered his time, expertise and support to SO many individuals, businesses and organizations in the Bennington area that it would be impossible to mention them all.

Foodies in Vermont

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!
