“Absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

We stayed at The Four Chimneys as a special Valentine's Weekend gift to each other, and our experience could not have been better! The innkeepers were pleasant and personable, with Lynn even ensuring that we had restaurant reservations for Valentine's Day (the inn's restaurant is closed for dinner at this time of year). The inn and grounds are absolutely beautiful -- the place was a winter wonderland -- and our stay in Room 1 was magical. The room is charming and comfy, the cool blue and green palate extremely soothing and the gas fireplace adds just the right touch. The jacuzzi tub is large and comfortable, and the separate shower has a large showerhead with plenty of pressure. Breakfast featured several choices; our selections were delicious and were delivered to our table promptly at the designated time. We don't often stay at B&B's -- preferring to spend a little less so we can travel a little more -- but on this occasion the experience was worth every penny, and more. Be sure to ask about the champagne and chocolates package -- for a wonderful Valentine's weekend or any time! It was very, very hard to leave. Now, our only dilemma is whether to book Room 1 again -- because it was so wonderful -- or to try one of the other, equally charming, rooms. We will return soon!

We dropped our daughter off at Middlebury College last week and were driving south to New York to catch our flight. It was getting late and Old Bennington seemed like a good place to stop for the night. We made a call to The Four Chimneys Inn and were greeted by the Owner, Lynn Green. She was friendly, professional and fortunately had a room available. After arrival we realized the restaurant on the property was closed so Lynn recommended an excellent restaurant in town for dinner.
Our room (#2) was warm, cozy, spotlessly clean, quiet and relaxing. Every amenity was provided. The next morning our breakfast was fresh and delicious...served exactly at the time we had requested. We really enjoyed the beautiful view from our comfortable table. We dropped the key in the basket on the bar in the living room and drove away feeling a bit like family.
Having worked in the hospitality industry in Hawaii, I understand the energy and effort it takes to create a great guest experience. The Four Chimneys Inn is a beautiful property and the Greens and their staff do a terrific job. We will return!

We stayed there for the Thanksgiving weekend. The inn was lovely, clean and had a personal charm, The owners which ran everything were very warm and friendly from the time we checked in until the we checked out. They treated you like family. We booked king room 3 on the second floor. The room was warm and bright and most of all very cleanroom, Also a fireplace for warmth and atmosphere we would definitely book this room again. The breakfasts were excellent., but the best off all was the Thanksgiving dinner. Out of this word. One of the best Turkey dinners I have had. I would recommend this to anyone traveling in the Bennington Vt. area

Room Tip: Room 3 large bay window with a lot of sunshine and warmth

I stayed at Four Chimenys on a recent business trip. Our stay could not have been more pleasant. The inn is gorgeous, charming, and well decorated. The family that runs the inn really knows customer service. They were welcoming and accomodating and friendly. The breakfast was delicious, and ready right when we requested, every single morning. I was in room 11, and my friend was in room 10. Both rooms were beautiful and comfortable. It felt like staying at a good friend's house rather than staying in a hotel. I would absolutely recommend this to anybody traveling to the area, and I can't think of a single thing I would have changed or improved upon.

We stayed in room 6 which was on the 3rd floor. It was described as one of the small rooms but there was plenty of room for 2 of us and our luggage, etc. The room was very clean and cheerful. The bathroom tub had jets in it for a jacuzzi type soak.

There were several choices for breakfast. I tried 3 different ones and all were good. Plenty to eat.
A coffee machine was always available in the hallway with coffee, hot chocolate, chai tea or regular tea available to make your own.

The living room has a nice fireplace which had a fire in it every evening.

The Inn is conveniently located to be able to walk to town to the Robert Frost gravesite, church, and Bennington monument.

Would stay here again if visiting Benninton.

Thank you for the wonderful review! We are happy to hear that you thought even our small room had plenty of room. As you mentioned, we always enjoy having a cozy fire in the living room as our favorite way to end a chilly winter's evening. It was a delight having you and we'll keep the fire burning for your next visit! Sincerely ~ Lynn

We stayed in room 11 in mid-January. The room is nicer than the pictures - more eclectic and handsome than the small photo would have you believe. It's on the ground floor, which was convenient. The bay windows look out on the front yard. So pretty in the snow. The curtains to cover the windows are on a track, very easy to operate, yet classy, and it meant that we could sleep in without being woken by the light. The bathroom was the only chilly spot, but it had a separate heat control, so we were able to turn it up without being overheated in the rest of the room. I liked that we were able to control the heat in our room. It was extremely cold outside, and I worried that we would be chilly. Not one bit. The bathroom is the least attractive part of the room, but perfectly functional. With the Four Chimneys, I don't really advocate the full-on renovation that some people call for in other reviews because the house is amazing, such a gem. The bathroom could stand to be restored to more original look, but the rest of the room was fantastic. Working gas fireplace. Didn't try the French paneled heated porch - the heater would have had to work overtime in January, but I imagine it's great most seasons of the year. I also had a chance to see room 1, which I thought was even nicer because of its bathroom with jacuzzi and shower. I liked the low-key and friendly greetings we had. For me, this is the kind of bed and breakfast I prefer - where the Inn is always humming away with people coming and going and you don't feel like you have to be "on" socially just to walk in the door. The breakfast was just ok, as others have mentioned, but all in all, we had a great stay and would stay again.

Dear MerrellMoss,
Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay. We're pleased that you found the room to be nicer than our photos. As you can imagine, it is a little tricky trying to fit all that room into a good photo. Also, we appreciate you mentioning how low-key the atmosphere is as we pride ourselves on keeping it friendly and comfortable. We'll see you on your next visit! Sincerely ~Lynn

A true "home away from home". Friendly and efficient staff, comfortable rooms and delicious food. We have the pleasure of returning back to Vermont several times a year as our son attands Hoosac school nearby and always look forward to staying in "our room" at the Four Chimneys Inn.
