“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

My husband and I stayed here for an overnight getaway. Everything was excellent at this inn! The room was wonderful, from the gas fireplace to the jacuzzi tub, the friendliness of the staff was fantastic, and the breakfast the next morning was amazing! I would definitely recommend staying here, whether it is for a quick getaway, or for a longer vacation.

My girlfriend and I stayed 2 nights in Room 4 just after Christmas. Our room was comfy and cozy, warm and clean, and the house itself is beautiful and has a lot of character. We loved sitting by the fire in the living room and having a few drinks from the bar. Lynn and her staff were so nice and accommodating, especially the young lady they have working the bar. My only complaint is that I was hoping for more of a homemade Vermont "fresh and local" vibe with the breakfast, as it was pretty standard and uncreative. The pancakes were just OK and my gf's eggs looked like they were made from a mix, the sausages tasted recently defrosted, and the french toast was just yucky. Even the coffee was just store bought Keurig so nothing Vermont-y about any of it. So a bit disappointed on the food front, but otherwise a really lovely stay. It also would have been nice if the fire in the living room kept going a bit later past 9PM on weekend nights. Conveniently located to ski slopes and a lot cheaper than hotels in the Manchester area.

We stayed 3 nights in room 1. The room was decorated appropriately in a mix of colonial furnishings juxtaposed against a slightly modern palette of soothing blues. The bed was a king and very comfortable. We had a nice gas fireplace and sofa. The bathroom was nicely appointed with a large jacuzzi tub and seperate shower. The only thing I can fault is some minor details in maintenance. Faucets were a bit loose and needed to be tightened and around the border of the tub tile it is about time for a new caulk job. I am very picky and probably notice things others might not. Overall I would recommend this inn to anyone traveling to Bennington. It was our favorite stay. The scenery around the inn was breathtaking. The inn employees were all very friendly and accommodating. The price is a little high but compared to other similar inns in the area it's fair. The breakfast was also very good and is included in your price. Loved our stay!

The grounds and building are beautiful and our room was spectacular. We were warmly greeted by a lovley innkeeper and had a great experience right on through to our departure. We visited at a busy time of year (October), so we only got to see a few of the rooms (besides our own). All were quite charming, clean and well cared for. In addition to a very good breakfast both days, we had a wonderful dinner where the lamb was cooked to perfection. We highly recommend and will return.

Room Tip: The inn's website pictures are good and can help you choose one that fits your taste as each is...

While the grounds are beautiful and the old mansion has beautiful bones this property is woefully neglected. It is in dire need of updating, painting, landscaping and more. The breakfast is included but it is very standard and not typical of the creativity found at many B&Bs.

Dear Nena 703:
I am truly sorry that our inn appeared to be ‘neglected’ in your view. We work extremely hard to maintain the charm and history of a 100 year old inn and completely understand that you had a different expectation. Please accept our apology for not living up to your expectations. Sincerely, Lynn

After reading many positive reviews, we were disappointed by the Four Chimneys. The Inn looks great from the outside, and the ground are beautiful, but that didn't translate inside, particularly in light of the price.

We stayed in room 5, which is quite large but had a worn feel. We walked in, turned on the fireplace, and it didnt work. The bathroom has an odd layout, including a slanting ceiling above the toilet that men over 5'7 wont enjoy.

The rest of the inn was very average, as was the breakfast. A good spruce up is overdue.

It is very centrally located to downtown Bennington, which is 2 minutes away
