The Kirkside Motor Lodge

Welcome to the Kirkside Motor Lodge, a uniquely furnished and individually decorated facility with twenty-five rooms, many with New England country style antiques and reproductions. We are located in Bennington, Vermont at the foot of the majestic Green Mountains, adjacent to the nineteenth century, Gothic-style Saint Frances de Sales church.

We continue to be in the forefront of all the moderately priced hotels and motels in the area. The prudent traveler will find, after comparisons with corporate and large franchise hotels, our room rates are 15% to 40% lower. Not being a franchise facility, the owners live on the property and deliver a personal touch that is not possible from an indifferent general manager of a large cookie-cutter franchise hotel.
the expense for your accommodations should not limit the expectations you've planned for Vermont.

All of our rooms have telephones, internet access, AM/FM clock radios, cable TV and complimentary in-room coffee. Unlike the franchise hotels, which are located on the heavily traveled highway outside of town, we are quietly tucked away next to the landmark Gothic Catholic church. You can park your vehicle in our parking area for your entire stay, walk to seven restaurants, art galleries, antique shops, sport clothing and dress shops, all no more than three to five minutes away. If that isn't enough shopping, one of the largest manufacturing and designer outlets in Vermont are just 20 minutes away in Manchester.

We invite you to come to Bennington and marvel at the spectacular Green Mountains, pristine rivers and valleys, enjoy our famous Vermont cheese and maple syrup products, and think of The Kirkside Motor Lodge for your year-round accommodations.
