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
was not happy with the food and thought that the tavern was the worst
Would not go back again
staff was great and room was good but that was it
wanted to use the spa and that was a disappointment , do not understand why when you said it was open until 7
We were looking for a quick weekend away in early March. The holidays were behind us and Spring was around the corner. We looked at a number of spots and decided on the Woodstock Inn & Resort. It was reasonably close to our CT home, allowing us to make plans for a Friday and Saturday night stay.
After working about half a day on Friday we drove up to Woodstock on Friday afternoon, arriving around 4:00pm. The check-in was easy from the valet parking, to the check-in desk, to the staff who assisted with our luggage. We decided to stay in Friday night and ate at the Tavern within the inn after having a cocktail in the bar, The menu was good and the food was excellently prepared.
On Saturday morning we made our way to the Nordic Center for a day on snowshoeing, of course after a a good breakfast at the Inn. The snowshoe trails were well marked and groomed, and we made our way to the summit of Mt. Peg. After our trip back down we made our way to the spa.
The spa is amazing. Separate male and female locker rooms with all of the amenities you could ask for...a steam room, hot tub/whirlpool, and a cedar sauna too. We both opted for individual massages instead of a couples massage, and I think we both walked away saying "wow"! Saturday night we decided on dinner in town. That proved to be a good choice too.
In the end, the best comment came from my wife who basically said "Whatever you're even thinking of...they have it and it's perfect". I think we're going to be looking at the Woodstock Inn for many weekend get-away's in the future.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves for a two night getaway to Woodstock, VT. The roaring fire in the lobby, delicious food, extra helpful and friendly staff in particular... Patti and Bill were outstanding...all added to the ambiance of a quaint town surrounded by natural beauty. Snowshoeing up Mt Tom was fun. Can’t wait to visit again and stay at the Inn.
Incredibly relaxing environment! Get away from stress in Woodstock Vermont. Rooms are so clean and updated. Four poster beds are very plush and comfortable. Staff is friendly and views are beautiful! Love this place!
Beautiful classic inn that is well maintained and staffed. Fire and ice special is a great value. So many things to see and do nearby. Don’t miss the huge fireplace where you can chat with other guests, if you wish. Easy walk to the village and all its cute shops.
