5 Reasons to stay at the Knotty Pine Motel
1) Location Location Location! You will be near it all when you stay at our motel. We are just minutes from The Bennington Museum, Covered Bridges, Bennington College and Historic Downtown Bennington where you will find galleries, restaurants, shopping and more. You can walk to the Mount Anthony Country Club and play a round of golf while overlooking the Battle Monument.
2) A simple thing like opening your window and enjoying the fresh air of the Green Mountains is not allowed at some hotel chains due to liability. At The Knotty Pine, this simple pleasure is realized.
3) Wireless Internet is available all over the grounds at The Knotty Pine but some chains limit it to the office and do not allow you the freedom to go to the pool or playground with your laptop.
4) The Owners at the Knotty Pine know the area like the back of their hands. After all they grew up here! Who else is better to recommend the best places to go shopping, the most delicious restaurants, and the best local attractions! We even have rainy day tips.
5) Main Level Access provides parking right outside your door. No more lugging your bags and suitcases up multiple floors, interior hallways and long corridors! All of the accommodations at our motel are located on the first floor providing easy access to all of our facilities, as well as outdoor sitting areas in front of every room.
