Bentley House B&B

Bentley House

In 1895, Edward Broughton built a beautiful Queen Anne Victorian home as a wedding present for his eldest daughter. It was a private home for only a brief time, until the younger sister stole the husband away. The house was sold to the academy across the street, now known as Green Mountain College. Today, the current owners, Pam & Rich Mikkelsen, present The Bentley House, Poultney's very own spectacular Inn!
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.
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.
