It's our first visit to Vermont. Something we have long dreamed of doing. October is the high season here for the foliage, even though we are a week or two late for the peak. It's been an unusual season. The colors have developed differently this year due to temperature or moisture over summer. In fact we found the weather much milder than we expected. Warm, and just a little drizzly. Driving through the Berkshires of Massachusetts in the rain made us feel like we were locals. And absolutely nothing could be more gorgeous!
Inns and guest houses are much more common than franchise hotels in Bennington, and we are better for it. The historic Four Chimneys Inn is a cozy and wonderful way to take in the joys of a fall visit to the beautiful State of Vermont.
The grounds are just lovely. I had no idea that hydrangeas could grow like trees! These turn a breathtaking pale pink just in time for June weddings. In fact everything on the property is perfect for celebrations of all kinds.
An excellent breakfast is included with the stay, and we also found the evening dining superb! Two separate dining rooms provide wonderful views all times of the year.
There's even a scenic pond in the back!
Thanks to all of you who have been stopping by!
I won't get to visiting much until I get back, but I hope fall is beautiful for you wherever you are. . . .
