Flanked by stately 18th-century homes in the heart of Woodstock, VT, this colonial stunner blends seamlessly into its quintessentially New England setting. The horseshoe-shaped lodge, built in 1969 by Laurance Rockefeller, is cloaked in historic charm thanks to designer Paul Duesing’s loving touch; think huge stone fireplaces, Audubon prints from Rockefeller’s private collection and a vintage game room clad in plaid Vermont Flannel textiles. Cozy up in the warm solarium overlooking the manicured grounds or amid the reclaimed wood paneling in the handsome library.
Bed and Bath
The 142 guestrooms and suites exude cozy, country style, with four-poster or sleigh beds, handcrafted furnishings by local artisans and rustic window panes that frame views of Mount Tom, the groomed lawn or a quaint Catholic church. Tavernside guestrooms reinforce the Vermont vibe in the details: Simon Pearce glass lamps, wood-burning brick fireplaces and rare books. Spacious marble bathrooms are stocked with plush robes, heat lamps and a generous bounty of bath products from the spa.
This sprawling retreat is home to a Robert Trent Jones-designed golf course, an award-winning spa and a 42,000-square-foot fitness complex, which offers aerobics classes, tennis, racquetball and volleyball courts, an indoor lap pool and a nordic adventure center. In the summer, there’s fly fishing and free bike rentals, while the winter brings snowshoe treks to the national park’s scenic log cabin or slopeside days at the Suicide Six ski resort (free to guests on weekdays). Red Rooster, from the team behind New York’s famous Blue Ribbon restaurants, serves farm-to-table fare using fresh produce from the resort’s 2.5-acre organic garden. Richardson’s Tavern pours craft beers by an inviting hearth, and the seasonal Fairway Grill presents al fresco plates at the country club.
In the Area
This whimsical slice of Vermont is known for its thriving art scene, rich history and locavore cuisine. Stroll along Central Street to Collective, or pop into Simon Pearce’s glassblowing workshop and flagship store just up the road in Quechee. Mon Vert Cafe dishes up a killer menu of gourmet paninis (try the Devil on Horseback, with bacon, Vermont Creamery goat cheese and walnut date spread) and morning brews (the maple latte is a must), while hidden gem The Prince & The Pauper serves mouthwatering meals like Tuscan lamb with Bordelaise sauce. Woodstock’s storied past is still prevalent: The First Congregational Church houses an 1818 Paul Revere bell that visitors can touch, and beautiful covered bridges dot the landscape around the state’s only national park. Billings Farm and Museum offers tours and sleigh rides around the grounds (both are free to guests). Stop by the Woodstock Farmers Market or The Village Butcher for some authentic take-home treats.
How to Get There
The Woodstock Inn delivers perfection. The staff truly want to make your stay comfortable and amazing. The rooms are old world charm, with modern amenities. Quiet, peaceful and relaxing. Walkability to local shops and old town from the Inn, an easy stroll. Amenities include: On site spa, dining, cocktails, afternoon tea, games room, golf and recreation opportunities available. The breakfast offered at the Inn, is also incredible and a great way to start the day or end your last morning experience (thank you Prince). The Woodstock Inn, is the only place to stay. Thank you once again for a memorable experience.
Overall satisfaction was graded a 6 because of one unfortunate event. On site dinner was fantastic, the pool was amazing and your staff was professional and accommodating...for the most part. Not certain if the team member needs more training or if she was following protocol. After a fantastic day we returned to our Tavern Suite to find a bottle of champagne and chocolates; we were thrilled until I noticed the name on the card was not addressed to us. I immediately phoned the front desk to inform your team of the oversight on your part as the champagne, chocolates and card was not addressed to our family. Your team member without explaining and without offering an apology quickly removed the gift that was placed in our room in error. The champagne cost your Inn $25 and the candy $10. We enjoyed your Inn for $700. plus for each night and because of this event I am uncertain if I would recommend our Inn. Empowering your employees to address the in- house error and offer the gift as an apology to to remain in the room was not even a thought of your team member. Thank you.
we always have a wonderful time at woodstock inn but this time was even more special. we booked a fly fishing half day lesson / excursion through their orvis progam. our guide was Jeff Hanson and he was the best!!!! tremendous patience, great teacher -- very knowledgeable and a great sense of humor. we learned lots and had an amazing time. i am ready to become a fly fisherwoman!!!!!
The Woodstock Inn is the ideal spot to relax and enjoy the wonderful golf course. The experienced and very friendly staff make playing at the Woodstock Country Club very enjoyable and staying at the Inn is beyond compare
We stayed at the Woodstock in June for three nights to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Our room was just lovely, beautifully decorated, and had a porch with a table and chairs, a TV, and an easy chair overlooking a central lawn area. My favorite thing in the room was a little built-in alcove which was twin bed size with lots of pillows, lights for reading, and shelves at each end complete with old classic books. The shampoo/soaps were wonderful! We had dinners at the Red Rooster, and twice at Richardson’s Tavern. We liked the Tavern a lot - could sit outside on porch, and food was good standard fare. The Red Rooster dinner was good too, but not memorable. Tea and some of the best cookies i’ve ever eaten were served every afternoon. The location was great, right in the center of Woodstock, which was the cutest town with gorgeous old buildings and homes. We highly recommend a visit!
