My wife and I stayed at the South Shire Inn while on a bicycle tour in Vermont. Our room was in the carriage house (Coach Room) and we couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations. The room was large, comfortable, nicely appointed and very clean. We especially enjoyed the spacious sitting room in the morning complete with Keurig and great selection of tea and coffee. The breakfast was delicious and the dining room was beautiful. The inn is located just a couple of blocks from the center of town so restaurants and stores are within easy walking distance. If we have occasion to visit Bennington again we will definitely return to the South Shire Inn.
