Steve & I spent the weekend in Rochester NY attending the college graduation of our son, Will, from the University of Rochester. Will majored in Biomedical Engineering and has joined the ranks of young people in search of a job. While in Rochester we also attended a Jack & Jill wedding shower held for our son Steve & his fiancée Kristin, who are getting married this June. It is a busy summer for our family!
Our Vermont bed and breakfast was in the very capable hands of our inn sitter, Barb. Barb and her husband owned an operated a motel in the Bennington area for many years so she is no stranger to being a hostess, concierge and ambassador for Southern Vermont. The Eddington House Inn was occupied this weekend by a family of six women on a Vermont Girl’s Getaway Package. They reserved the entire bed and breakfast for a two night “Pajama Party” and Barb reports they had a wonderful time at the inn and enjoying all the great things the Bennington area has to offer.

Girl’s getaway vacations have become very popular here at our Southern Vermont bed and breakfast. We offer a girlfriends package at a very reasonable price. Just this weekend we hosted a group of three “girls” who were doing a Bachelorette getaway…two friends honored the bride to be. This same weekend, our North Bennington inn was the meeting point for two cousins who had planned a reunion – one from Connecticut and one living here in Vermont.
Our Vermont bed and breakfast offers a one night or two night “Girlfriend’s” Getaway Package. The Eddington House package includes lodging, a 60 minute spa treatment each at Green Mountain Oasis Day Spa, afternoon refreshments, a bottle of wine, dinner at cozy Pangaea Lounge, just steps from the Inn, endless desserts, and locally made chocolate truffles. Prices for the one night package at the Eddington House bed and breakfast are $175 pp and for the two nights package $235pp.
This Vermont getaway package has been enjoyed in our bed and breakfast by mothers & daughters (a great gift for Mother’s Day), college roommates, family getaways, brides to be, mother’s to be, sisters, cousins and childhood friends. We recently hosted a “pajama party” with a total of 6 girls on a getaway – they had our entire Vermont bed and breakfast to themselves. I live in the attached barn ..ready to help at a moment’s notice but allowing the girls lots of privacy in the inn.
I commented to my husband, Steve recently that it doesn’t matter if the “girls” are 65 or 25 …there is always a lot of “giggling” involved. Check it out…might be just the Vermont getaway you and your girlfriends have been looking for.
