Congratulations to John & Kristel
The other night I received a reservation for Fall 2011 from Kristel and John who are regular guests at our North Bennington bed and breakfast. In our online reservation form, I noticed a change of last name for Kristel…..a marriage had occurred since I saw them last. Kristel & John became engaged here at the Eddington House on their September 2010 visit….very exciting.
After receiving the reservation, I offered my congratulations for the happy union and asked if I might have a photo of their wedding day to share on my blog. Here is an image of an exuberant Kristel & John in Central Park on their wedding day.
Kristel & John live in Brooklyn and have been together since 1997. They both love to travel and have made several trips together to Italy. Luckily for us they are also fans of Southern Vermont and the Eddington House.
I look forward to seeing them both in April and again in the Fall. I am sure we will share stories of the wonderful food & beautiful images in Italy.

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.

Southern Vermont is a beautiful place for a destination wedding or honeymoon.
Our North Bennington Village bed and breakfast has been the destination of several newly married couples this week. Arriving late last evening, newly weds from Virginia have chosen to spend a few days in Bennington at the beginning of their honeymoon. They ventured out after breakfast at the inn and are off for a day of exploring Southern Vermont. They will begin with a driving tour of our three covered bridges into Old Bennington and then will drive Carpenter Hill to catch the fabulous views of Old Bennington Village and the Green Mountain range from Southern Vermont Orchards. Should be breathtaking as the apple trees are in bloom!
Over the weekend, the Eddington House Bed and Breakfast hosted two young “lovebirds” who escaped the hectic lifestyle in New York and chose a Vermont wedding & honeymoon. They had planned some hiking in the Green Mountains and fabulous Vermont views as part of their honeymoon experience.
If you are thinking of a destination wedding in the Bennington area of Southern Vermont, you will find invaluable assistance from Tim Corcoran and his staff at the Bennington Town Clerk’s office. The Eddington House Inn will be happy to help as well with suggested wedding sites, photo “ops”, flowers, food and of course great accommodations in our historic Vermont bed and breakfast.
