Safford Mills Inn

The Safford Mills Inn and Café is the oldest house in Bennington Village and was the home of the owners of the first grist mill in Vermont.  We offer three elegant & uniquely dressed guest rooms with modern amenities, and private bathrooms, as well as a comfortable and relaxing café, featuring craft cocktails, light fare and decadent desserts.

We offer Several uniquely decorated guest rooms that are used at different times throughout the year...

The Tapestry Room A first floor room with an elegant Victorian mantle with an electric fireplace insert. This room also has its own porch, attached to the front of the inn, so you can watch the activities of Bennington's Main Street.

The Walloomsac Room A spacious second floor room, with wall to wall carpet, a large flat screen television and an electric fireplace insert.

The Miller's Room One of our second floor rooms, also very spacious. A trip back in time, this room boasts wide plank flooring and a claw foot tub and shower.

The Morgan Room An example of the Victorian additions to the home. High ceilings, Hard wood floors, with a mantle reminiscent of the era, that includes an electric fireplace insert. Two wing back chairs to relax in, and an over sized shower.

The Colonel’s Quarters Aptly named for the homes original inhabitant, Lt Col Samuel Safford. The smallest of the rooms, but has the most cozy feeling. Tub and shower combo, and a full size couch, with a colonial mantle and electric fireplace insert.

All of our guest rooms have queen beds, private bathrooms, cable television, air conditioning, hair dryers, small refrigerators, off street parking and free Wi-Fi.  We also offer Complimentary Coffee Service.
