welcome

Taraden Bed & Breakfast is nestled on 20 acres of southwest Vermont farmland in the beautiful and serene Village of North Bennington. Taraden, once a part of the Park-McCullough Estate started out as a dairy farm, then became an artist's retreat and studio and as of September 2006 has become a respected bed and breakfast. It is also our home. Situated in the Vermont Valley with views of Mt. Anthony and the Taconic Mountains to the south and the stately Green Mountains to the east (and never a dull sunrise or sunset), Taraden offers a year round quiet and private escape that we call "our little piece of paradise."

The bed & breakfast features three large suites newly renovated in soft colors with modern baths. Each suite has a private bath, refrigerator, and television. The spacious Night Pasture suite has a living room and a separate bedroom for two but can accommodate up to four guests. The West Wing suite sleeps three; two in a queen bed and one in a twin bed in an adjoining room. The Cottage suite sleeps two and is located in a separate private cottage that once served as the farm store.

Full breakfasts are served in our large glass Breakfast Room with a spectacular view overlooking a small pond surrounded by many white birch and Empire apple trees, not to mention the horses pasturing on the hill beyond the barns. All our guests have told us that the Breakfast Room and the ample, delicious breakfast are a reason to come back again.

If you have any questions or wish to make a reservation, please call or email. For those of you that may be allergic to animals, we must let you know that while guests will not necessarily see or hear them, we do have cats that live in the main house and horses, which don't; they live in the barn.

We have recently begun offering our beautiful "Media Barn" studio (60' x 35') for small events including business meetings, dance and art classes. We also are offering our beautiful Breakfast Room (can comfortably seat 20) for smaller meetings, wedding and baby showers and luncheons.

As an incentive to prospective students visiting Bennington College, we will waive the $35 "additional person fee" for the student when accompanied by parents.
