THE BEST VIEW IN BENNINGTON!

For me it is on Carpenter Hill Road at the crest of the hill, in the middle of Southern Vermont Orchard. Take a ride up there during apple blossom time in May and you will have the added beauty and scent of thousands of apple trees in full bloom.

View of Bennington from Carpenter Hill
From this vantage point, you get the dramatic sense of the valley that our Town of Bennington, including North Bennington, Old Bennington and Shaftsbury enjoy. From here you can see the roadways, waterways and the Green Mountains to the East, The Taconic Range to the West and straight north to Mount Equinox in Manchester.

What are your favorite views in the area?  Let us know so that we can share them with everyone. Southwestern Vermont is a naturally beautiful place and we should pause and take the time to appreciate it.  How lucky we are to live and work in such an environment!
