I've stayed at Harwood Hill Motel a number of times on trips to the east coast. Rooms are nice, clean and the setting is wonderful. There are lovely views of the mountains and the Bennington monument. The owners are friendly and willing to assist. Having the Publyk House restaurant right next door is great when you arrive tired from driving...

This is truly a beautiful little Vermont motel, the views are incredibly gorgeous, the owners went out of their way to ensure your happy and have the most information on the town of Bennington. I will definitely reserve rooms from here again for my out of state family when they come to visit.

We had a cabin at Harwood Hill for 4 days. It was like a rustic retreat. The view was amazing. The owner was so helpful. The space was warm and cozy. There was lots to see in Bennington. We can't wait to go back.

We recently stayed a night at the Harwood Hill Motel after switching from a less desirable motel the next town over. After a 5+ hour drive to frigid temperatures in Vermont, we were overjoyed to be warmly greeted by both the owner and a toasty room (#2). The room was clean, sizable, and comfortable with plenty of hot water for...

I recently stayed at the Harwood Hill Motel in Bennington, it was great! I wanted to mention how helpful the owners are at the motel, and the staff as well. I love this place!

Stayed here for one night in early October. Apparently high season here, for the changing leaves, so it wasn't a bargain but it also wasn't expensive. Had a nice big room with 2 chairs and a table, a TV with a lot of stations AND a microwave and small fridge. Bathroom was nice. Everything was clean. There was a window...

This roadside motel won't be five star luxury, but it will have clean beds, a hot shower, a door that locks and pretty grounds to boot. The rooms were simple and a little time worn, but definitely comfortable. The shower is a little touchy so you may have to play with it a bit to find your perfect temperature. I...

Stayed on a recent trip through Vermont and based on reviews in tripadvisor.com. The proprietor, Chet, was very nice and helpful and check in was quick and easy. Chet also has a very friendly cat who helped out. The room was large and reasonably comfortable and the furnishings, while 50s-60s retro, were well maintained. Unfortunately, the wall paper in the...

We stopped here for 1 night while on the road. Our room was clean & quiet but nothing special. We knew this from reading other reviews on Tripadvisor. The bathroom was very small & the fixtures were dated but very clean. We were lacking some linens in the bath - 1 hand towel & 1 washcloth - just got forgotten,...

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
