Sprawling colonial charmer courtesy of the Rockefellers with an award-winning spa and farm-to-table fare
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.
