The Safford Mills Inn and Cafe is celebrating a recent award by hosting a giveaway with Try Vermont First! This three room Inn is located in historic Bennington, VT. It’s cafe offers both a light fare and delicious desserts made in house.
BedandBreakfast.com, the world’s most comprehensive site for planning and booking bed and breakfast getaways, announces the first “B&B Innovator of the Year Award” to recognize bed and breakfast pioneers who constantly evolve their business and hospitality offerings to better meet the ever-changing needs of travelers.
BedandBreakfast.com’s inaugural award goes to John Redding and Lisa Harrington-Redding, owners of The Safford Mills Inn and Café in Bennington, Vermont. To attract a younger, more contemporary traveler, the innkeepers added a martini bar to the inn and cleverly re-branded it as an A&A, or “Accommodations & Apertif.”
The inn offers complimentary martinis, wine, beer and appetizers every night. Since reopening as an “A&A,” the property has doubled its occupancy and attracted a wider mix of global travelers as well as locals craving staycations. “We are changing the face of traditional B&Bs,” says Lisa Harrington-Redding. “As avid travelers ourselves, we prefer comfortable, intimate spaces to enjoy each other as well as the local flavor. We have created an upscale martini/craft cocktail bar where our guests mingle with locals, and this focus on evening interaction and personal attention has been met with interest and delight.”
This is an international honor awarded to 1 out of 11,000 bed and breakfasts/small inns around the world. The Safford Mills Inn and Café has been recognized for business and hospitality innovations.
Congratulations Safford Mills!!!! What an exciting time for you and your A&A! We are thrilled to host this giveaway for a one night stay complete with a round of drinks, appetizers, and dessert for one couple. (Overnight must be booked by contacting Safford Mills Inn and date will be dependent upon availability when the winner books the room but must be used between November 2015 through April 2016.)
