Travel Blogs from Woodstock
Today was a catch your breath and take stock day. We were met at our lodgings by Penelope who gave us each a copy of her book of short stories. We chatted for a while and then adjourned to their place for one of John's culinary treats, crepes with coconut milk and other secret ingredients (not to mention one of Vermont's claims to fame, fine maple syrup!) with slabs of smoked bacon, washed down by cappuccinos. It's a hard life having a ...

Some rooms of the MIT feature art done by John's mother who studied in Paris and whose work has a definite style to it, GG and I both liked it.
We later enjoyed our hard earned meal and were too full for dessert! We saw some lovely country today, met some beautiful friendly people and thoroughly enjoyed it all.

For lunch we dropped into Easy Over's in Cuttingsville for tasty toasted sandwiches then off to the famous Pearce's Store. This is the local general store where you'll find Lavinia, one of the colourful local personalities who welcomed us warmly. As a memento of our visit Scott purchased a Pearce's Store t-shirt to show off back home.

A Rockerfeller Nat'l Historical Park ( his mansion and grounds), the Billings farm, a dairy farm dating from the 1880s and the Sugarbush Farm where they make maple syrup and age co-op cheese, up to 8 years.

Hardly any traffic on the roads as it is low tourist season for the area. When we made it Lincoln, which was our end goal for the day we decided to continue on to a place called Lebanon. Looking at the maps we went route 118 through ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Woodstock Inn and Resort
Great staff and clean rooms
The staff of the Inn never fails to amaze us with their warm, sincere greetings, and welcoming smiles. We see return guests their all the time and the village is the best in the state. the rooms and public space are always immaculte and clean and the food is consistently the best!
I spent many winters skiing Vermont as a child. So it was with great anticipation that I returned as an adult with my wife. The inn was the highlight of our trip. The staff were extremely accomodating in every way. They were very helpful with area attractions and went out of their way to make us feel at home. The dining room is nice but I would highly recommend another restaurant within walking distance from the Inn called "The Prince and The Pauper". The food is to die for!
A Great Place to Stay in a Beautiful Town
We just came back from an 8 day trip through New England, and loved the 2 nights we spent at the Woodstock Inn... The place is beautiful, the staff was helpful and friendly... The food was delicious!We got the full breakfast included (Belgium waffles with fresh berries and whip cream was the best) with our "Family Plan" package. The town of Woodstock, VT is charming with a lot to do in the area - Sugarbush Farms, Quechee Gorge, Billings Farm & Museum... We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Also, the kids loved the Nintendo and pay-per-order movies in the room. A historic charming mansion of a hotel with modern amenities (even a public computer with quick internet connection in the library).
We have visited the Woodstock Inn and Resort forthe past 30 years and have always had a veryenjoyable stay. The rates are getting a bit priceyhowever, especially for the upscale rooms.
Far From Horrible
I have been bringing my family to the Woodstock Inn for 8 years, and we have had nothing but a wonderful time each visit. The staff are the friendliest and most curteous around and most recognize all family members by name. The Inn is our favorite vacation spot yet and the kids keep wanting to come back year after year - there's always something for eveyone!
Great for kids
My Husband and I were EXTREMELY impressed by how family oriented the Woodstock Inn was. It's rare that you can find such devotion to children's programming in combination with not only just a resort setting, but one as luxurious as this. We've already booked our rooms for next year's vacation.
Always A Wonderful Experience
My family and I have been repeat guests at the Woodstock Inn & Resort for over thrity years. Each and every stay has consistently either met or exceeded our expectations with regard to the accommodations, dining, staff, facilities and activities/sports. No matter the season, we have found that this beautiful resort has so much to offer, and never once have any of us been disappointed with our guest experiences. The warm and inviting atmosphere provided by this property has enabled it to become a "home away from home" for three generations of my family. I highly recommend the Woodstock Inn to discerning guests of any age.
A magical experience
We recently stayed at The Woodstock Inn for a family getaway and found the experience totally delightful. The food was beyond our expectations and the rooms were extremely comfortable. We were there for a small family reunion and had a range of ages from 8 years old to 82 years old. Everyone found something to do and never seemed to be bored. The staff at the Inn and all of the other outlets...Suicide Six, X-C Ski Center, and The Health and Fitness Center were always there to help with a friendly smile. Afternoon tea in front of that roaring fireplace was the perfect way to end an active day! Thank you for giving us such a memorable stay! We will be back!!!
Wonderful Stay at the Woodstock Inn & Resort
I had a wonderful stay at the Woodstock Inn & Resort. The staff was both professional and very friendly. The food was excellent. We ate in the Dining room and at Richardon's Tavern. The tavern was very cozy, and the menu was diverse. We skiing at Suicide Six (The Inn's very own ski mountain). The lines were short and it was as though we had the mountain all to ourselves. I would highly recommend a stay at the Woodstock Inn & Resort.
The staff were stuck up and rude. They made promises over the phone during booking, that they did not honor. The hotel is nice enough, however when spending that type of money you would expect to be treated courteously. I will never return to this inn.
