If you think you're going to a typical 1960s old but clean motel, you'll be "wowed" by this place. The owners have a knack for keeping the charm but replacing a few important features. The beds were great, the room colors were vibrant and the intriguing local art gave a handcrafted touch. So many of these "family" motels are tired... More

We spent a Friday night here when we needed a place on short notice. The reviews were promising. This place is SO nice. We stayed in room #5. It has a lovely rug. Tonight we are in a king room. Still love this place.

Really nice motel, room was clean, comfortable and quite spacious. Bathroom was also very clean. Just on the outskirts of Bennington so would need a car to get to Main Street. Very friendly staff and nice quiet location. Would definitely stay here again.

While traveling we stopped here to take a break and the staff was so helpful and friendly. The room was so clean! It had a tv, free wifi, a place to sit outside, and candies on the nightstand. I loved that there were trees all over the place outside and it had places all over for you to sit and... More

We had a lovely experience. The room was not only comfortable, but simply and artfully decorated. I'm super picky about bathrooms, so the newly renovated one here with a beautiful wooden sink vanity was a welcome sight. The kids had fun on the ample grounds and the staff were friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!

Cottages are great for family gatherings. Large lawn for recreation. Simply walk through the hedge and you have fun dining without getting in your car. Great, fresh continental breakfast on the weekends.

A lovely motel in a rural, quiet setting. Under new ownership, rooms have been tastefully decorated and feature works by local artists. Sculptures are featured on the lawn and artwork is also on display in the office. It is only a minute or two to ride into town, yet you feel you are sleeping in the country. The owners/staff are...

Beyond basic accommodations. We were limited in choices as we were traveling with our dogs.Decent location with what is touted as "a million dollar view". Probably beautiful during foliage season. When we saw the unit we were staying in, I was ready to stay in my car as it was more luxurious and more comfortable. Place looks like it was... More

MFMaven, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you were disappointed in your room and the facilities. Perhaps you were booked in one of our Economy rooms, which are quite modestly priced and in a smaller, older wing than our newly renovated Deluxe rooms. We do have window air conditioners, and they do not shut off automatically, but we... More

We knew that we had booked an older hotel so we were questioning our choice but what a great surprise - it was updated as stated. We used our GPS to find the hotel so we did not have a problem getting in. The appearance from the street is very welcoming, very clean property, flowers, art work etc. The desk... More

While we were very late at arriving, the owners left the light and A/C on for us after a call explaining our delay. The room had two comfy queen beds with a decent-sized and clean bathroom with a shower/tub combo. There's a front porch running down the length in front of our section of rooms. I don't recall a breakfast,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A boutique motel where the arts meet hospitality! The new Harwood Hill was launched in the Winter of 2015 by a foursome of lifelong friends with a love of the arts and a dream of creating a special place filled with both natural and crafted beauty. Our vision preserves the tradition of providing peaceful respite for travelers with the new concept of showcasing the works of local artists and artisans alongside our own collection and the work of our artist-in-residence. At the Harwood Hill, every room is a gallery. We have also forged connections with area museums, our renowned Bennington Potters, and a wide array of galleries and shops to provide opportunities for our guests to explore the local art scene (at a discount!). Relax in one of our swings or hammocks, gather at one of our popular bonfires under the stars, picnic by the grill, or stroll with your friends through the sculpture garden on our lovely grounds in the shadow of Mount Anthony. Or venture out to discover Southern Vermont's many charms and explore its history. Our convenient Historic Route 7A location provides easy access in any direction for antiquing, hiking, golfing, fishing, bicycling, river tubing, or just visiting family and friends. The area is home to many fine restaurants, and one of the best is right next door at The Publyk House, an easy stroll from your room. Join us for a unique arts experience that highlights Vermont's unique blend of progress and tradition. We'd love to be your hosts! ... more   less
