A New Luxury Resort and Spa
Bennington, Vermont
The Orchards, A New Luxury Resort and Spa (Initial Planning Phase)

Built in 1911 as the summer estate of Edward Everett, this magnificent hillside property encompasses over 371 acres with views of the Vermont countryside. Existing improvements include over 145,000 square feet of well maintained structures. The centerpiece is the 30,000 square foot Everett Mansion. This building will be restored to a reception lounge, wine cellar, a fine dining restaurant, spa and guestrooms. Former residential buildings will be gutted and transformed into the finest luxury suites. A 17,000 square foot event and activity space will be created from the former gymnasium. In addition to the spa, the hotel will offer tennis, snow shoeing, equestrian, bowling, movie screening room, ice skating, a summer resort pool, indoor pool, miles of blazed hiking trails, mountain biking, a sporting club and even a luxury dog kennel with K9 Spa.
