A 2010-11 Fodor’s Choice, Fodor's states: "This (Four Chimneys Inn) is the quintessential Old Bennington mansion, and one of the best inns in Vermont.….This property has long been an inn but only recently did it spring back to life in high style, under the careful attention of new owner and innkeeper Lynn (and Peter) Green."
The Four Chimneys Inn and Restaurant is a wonderfully
inviting New England inn situated on eleven magnificent acres in
the historic neighborhood of Old Bennington, Vermont. Tucked away from the road next
door to the old governor’s mansion and just a few yards from
the historic Old First Church, the inn provides a magical respite
from modern-day frenzy.
With only ten beautifully and uniquely appointed guest rooms,
the inn has an intimate, yet grand feel that is reminiscent of
the graceful summer homes of days gone by. Each room maintains
its old world grandeur while offering all of the amenities of modern
day life such as private baths, phones,in-room high speed internet, air conditioners, individual heat controls and more. A
hearty country breakfast is served in the glass-sun porch or main dining room each morning
and is included in the cost of the room.
Located in The Shires of Vermont just 4 miles from NY and 10 miles from Williamstown MA, The Four Chimneys
is a perfect launch pad for day trips to nearby Saratoga Springs NY, Williamstown MA,
