The Bentley House B & B, LLC

The Bentley House graces the historic Village of Poultney, in the Lakes Region of Vermont's Rutland County. This residential community founded in 1761 borders New York on the west and shares beautiful Lake St. Catherine State Park and Golf Course with the town of Wells on the south. Green Mountain College dominates the village with its beautiful campus and contributes to the quaint downtown Main Street lined with charming shops, friendly eateries, Post Office, Historical Society and Library and looking onto the Green Mountain to the West. Come enjoy the ambience of this century-old charmer with its stained glass windows, original woodwork and mantles, imposing staircase, wrap-around porch and period antiques. Located centrally in VT so that it is within an hour's reached of most of the tourist attractions and 5 miles from two lakes, St. Catherine and Lake Bomoseen. Some of the hiking and biking trails are within walking distance of the house.
Business Information
The Bentley House is the only Inn in town and is host to a variety of visitors who come to Poultney on a regular basis. Green Mountain College is located across and therefore is the ideal place for parents to stay while making their initial visit with the children, but return repeating to visit them once they have enrolled. During the summer months the college runs alumni reunions, workshop, seminars and professional training institutes which bring business to the Inn. We also have guests who are visiting the lakes, s, Mountains and tourist attractions which offer a variety of reasons to visit our area and stay in our Inn. Over the years we have seen a increase in repeat business coming from people who have family here, business men, vacationers and local people renting rooms for their friends or business associates. We invite you visit us at on our website and Facebook page to get a feel for what we offer and better yet, visit us in person; watch the sun set on the West Mountains and enjoy a glass of wine. We would love to see you.
