For our 50th anniversary (and after no travels out of state since Covid 19 began for us in March 2020), we chose from a number of New England inns for our three night stay. The Woodstock Inn ticked a number of things, some in reality true, others not so much. On the good side. The spa services were no pricier than the better spas in the Western MA town we live in and with a wide selection. It was relaxing, had access to an outdoor hot tub, wet and dry sauna and with the lovely weather-a great place to hang out and just relax. The gym and indoor pool are off-site and my husband enjoyed them. The breakfast was either full or continental, with room service usual offerings available too. Our first meal at the Inn was early tin-can salty for me, a bowl of clam chowder. Having been on a low salt diet for Meniere's I was truly SHOCKED at how salty, the quality was 'meh' so I immediately canceled our plans to have an anniversary dinner there. We avoided eating there afterwards, finding picking up cheese and fruit, a bottle of wine etc. at local shops to picnic in the room a far a better choice. Clearly the Inn flunked in the restaurant area. The hotel staff were overall, excellent--though the reception staff varied. We were told that there were two EV chargers, one in the front of the hotel for Tesla, one in the back for non-Tesla. That was NOT true, they both were Tesla only. The room was lovely, with a gas fireplace that we enjoy (guiltily) for our entire state. Sorry about the carbon. But some of the furniture could use refresh, given it was scarred with veneer cracking. The bathroom was European style, with 8 towel sets and a marble floor. Anything we called to ask for, they tried to get (non-feather pillows of my allergies, plates for the picnic, etc.) So that is why I gave it 4 of 5 stars. For a relaxing, well located to walk the town and park a vehicle site with on site spa services, go for it. POSTSCRIPT. I later learned we were there during 'stick season', and when asking what that was it was explained that fall was leaf season (i.e. leaf peepers that were on the front page of a local newspaper extolling the bad manners of these tourists plunking about a farmer's field), stick season came after the leaves...then can snow season. Caveat EMPTOR. During stick season many many MANY restaurants etc are CLOSED, and those that claim that they will be open are closed for unexplained reasons. Having lived in Latin America for 16 years, it felt very similar. …
5 star luxury hotel, elegant rooms and dining, fabulous amenities. friendly and giving staff. well worth the trip, plan to stay a few days. classic hotel loaded with history with all the modern conveniences.
The inn is beautiful and in a great location. Walkable to all the local shops and restaurants. There are several dining options within the inn but unfortunately, all but one (Red Rooster) were closed during our stay. Red Rooster can be a bit pricey for daily dinner and drinks. Our room was comfortable and clean and everything worked.
Loved my stay at Woodstock Inn. The huge fireplace, homey charm, amenities and service staff all are great. But most of all I loved the pillows on the bed - I looked them up to buy some for home! I do note that the sound travelled very easily between rooms where I was (rm 171), which was a distraction and I'd be self conscious if I were in a meeting or other private conversation in my room.
Our first vacation in Woodstock and it couldn’t have been any better. This trip exceeded all our expectations. Such an enjoyable and relaxing time. Woodstock resort is the place to stay. Can’t wait until our next visit.
We stayed three nights with our two young children in October 2022. Woodstock is a stunning location; staff at the Inn go the extra mile to make your stay extra special. Food, drinks and facilities were all first class.
Beautiful rustic inn. Great staff, good food. Went out of their way to acknowledge our 35th wedding anniversary. Located right on Main Street in Woodstock, Vermont making it "walking friendly" to all local businesses.
I had my first ever full body massage here on 10/20/22. The space is very relaxing and accommodating. The robes, sandals, and amenities were great. Christy gave me my massage, my mom had Lisa, and my sister had Greg. Christy was amazing and I felt rejuvenated and relaxed afterwards. Why did I wait so long to get a full body massage? I am hooked! Hopefully other masseuses are as a good as her!! My mother loved her neck, scalp and foot massage from Lisa and my sister loved the deep tissue massage from Greg. I highly recommend coming here to get a massage!
Our party of four from Chicago flew to Burlington and had rented a car for the drive to Woodstock. We had a 6:45 dinner reservation at the Red Rooster restaurant at the Inn - plenty of time with a big time cushion. However, our flight was delayed at the gate and the rental agency did not have a car for us upon arrival, so we started our journey an hour and a half late. On our way to the Inn, we called to let the Red Rooster know we would be 15-20 minutes late. We were told, in a rather robotic and unapologetic way, that we would get a 20 minute grace period, and after that we would lose our table, and that the best they could offer is that were would probably be able to be seated at 8:45 pm. This was very upsetting news, given that we had been traveling all day and had not been able to have any lunch - just biscuits on the plane. As we got closer, we called the Red Rooster again, to explain that we were likely to arrive within the 20 minute grace period, but it would be close. Once again, the lady at the restaurant, without a hint of grace or sympathy, told us that the 20 minutes was a hard and fast cut-off, and if we missed it, we would lose our table. Please bear in mind that we were driving in the dark through unfamiliar mountainous roads, hungry and tired. We then called the hotel front desk and they said that they couldn't help us, that they had no control or influence over the restaurant. (As though the restaurant was down the road at another property where we were not guests!) As it turned out, we arrived with 2 minutes to spare, left our bags with the bellmen at the door and practically ran to the restaurant, tired and stressed out. The same lady expressed not the slughtest concern as she seated us. Our waited professed to be shocked, because, as he put it, "We're not really busy anyway." We looked around the Red Rooster, and saw 4 empty tables that remained empty for the entire evening. This make sit even more unfathomable that we were treated with such disregard. This left a sour taste in our mouths for the entire stay. I strongly suggest that the Woodstock Inn figure out how to make guests feel welcome, how to show concern for their guests, and why the restaurant would kick us out at 20 minutes even though there were a number of empty tables. It makes no sense, and tainted what would otherwise have been a nice stay.…
This hotel is a bit pricey, but it is well located, has a fabulous restaurant and is worth it. Woodstock is a gorgeous small town, perfect for walking and shopping, with a cute farmers market. It is well located for leaf peeping in the fall and visiting the many covered bridges in this part of Vermont. It has nearby attractions and lots to do and see.
