Eclectic Inn with Exceptional Hosts
en agosto 29, 2015
We stayed at The Woodstocker based on a referral from friends who visited last year and we're glad we took their advise. This is most definitely not your grandmothers B&B. The lace and frill have given way to brightly painted, individually decorated, spacious rooms and modern baths. There is plenty of space for gathering, a great library and a small alcove kitchenette in case you need coffee, tea or treats at an odd hour. Of course, every inn is defined by its owners, and Dora and David are wonderful, providing not just tips about what to do around the area, but great conversation and stories. David even managed to get two out of the three of us to try blood pudding, so you know he is persuasive. We hope to make it back for leaf peeping season next year!
Home away from home

The Woodstocker Inn is a unique place. You immediately feel at home by the welcome given by Dora, David and Daisy Doo. We were fortunate enough to to be upgraded and relished the use of the Richmond suite, particularly a jacuzzi to unwind at the end of a very busy day. What a way to relax! The bathroom is spectacular, filled with organic toiletries and a little rubber duck on the edge of the bath. The bed was extremely comfortable with organic linen that cocooons you as you sleep. Breakfast was lovingly prepared and exquisitely presented, but this just illustrates Dora and David's ethos in running this fantastic inn. For us Brits, a quirky reminder of home, (and all the way from Sainsbury's, Chiswick) was the jar of Marmite at breakfast, along with boiled eggs and soldiers. Dora and David gave us some many ideas of things to do and places to visit, we struggled to achieve it all in our 2 day stay. But Dora and David's hospitality and care doesn't end when you leave: we left an iPad behind and they arranged for it to be Fed-Exed so it was awaiting our arrival at a further destination. All we can say is thank- you!
Comfortable and well organized

Charming little Inn with easy to work with hosts - a nice visit, would visit again
Our 8th yearly visit, as wonderful as ever!
en febrero 22, 2015
David and Dora combine great warmth, energy, and creativity with superb breakfasts and lots of foodie extras (many types of chocolates, biscotti, fruitcake) to fashion an absolutely wonderful guest experience. We keep returning for the fine hospitality, matched with a gem of a town to visit. The Woodstocker Inn is just 2 blocks walk from the center of Woodstock. The town is quaint, upscale, old New England at its best, with an eclectic general store, galleries, jewelers, and crafts shops, and great dining choices. Outdoor activities abound, and there's a great sports complex a mile away.
The Woodstocker is an excellent launching pad for the area. Rooms are unique (particularly bathrooms), comfortable, and immaculately clean. Nooks and crannies downstairs offer a huge and varied book collection, CD collection, and 24 hour availability of snacks and beverages. The innkeepers are very personable, and glad to discuss the area and its dining and amusements. Overall, in 8 years we've not found a single glitch, only the warmest hospitality very reasonably priced.
An Unmitigated Gem
en febrero 05, 2015
This inn deserves every award it has won and more. My spouse and I stayed there in early February 2015 for 4 days. When I called for a reservation we were immediately offered an upgrade. The descriptions and photos on the website are completely accurate, or maybe the reality is even better. The accommodations were immaculate, the bed comfortable, the rooms and guest areas are nicely appointed with colorful, uncluttered, and sometimes whimsical decor; very inviting. The breakfast was fabulous-- no need for lunch after creamy porridge and maple syrup, toast and marmalade made by Dora, who also makes the muesli and compote. David cooks eggs any way you like, and although we are not meat eaters, those sausages looked scrumptious. The delightful and very British (in the best kind of way) hosts, Dora and David, served breakfast, but we did not see them or their adorable dog Daisy Doo the rest of the day, giving guests lots of privacy. On the way home and into the evening, we couldn't stop talking about "D3" and their inn.
Friendly hosts, comfortable, and great location with reasonable price.

Fun Rooms, Great Village, Excellent Breakfast
en diciembre 07, 2014
What a fun, cheery inn. The rooms have a lot of character and color, and have plenty of space. The owners are cheery and helpful. And the english breakfasts are fantastic. We have stayed here several times for a fun getaway weekend in the fantastic village of Woodstock, and we always have a great time. You can't go wrong with the Woodstocker!
Just Book the Room!

This was my third visit to the Woodstocker, and this time I brought along my family. As usual, the trip exceeded expectations--because the Inn was quiet, Dora and David upgraded our accommodations. As always, the rooms were pristine, the beds heavenly, and the food absolutely delicious. Dora, David, and Daisy Doo have created a magical place nestled in one of New England's most quintessential towns.
If you stay in Woodstock....stay at the Woodstocker!!!

We were extremely fortunate to visit the Woodstocker Inn over Thanksgiving weekend and had a most amazing stay. David, Dora and Daisy AKA D3 are the best hosts in the business. The room was wonderful and the breakfast is absolutely fabulous. Try the Full Monty. You will never forget Woodstock if you stay here. They will make your trip into a lifetime memory. I already want to go back!!! (Hint:If you have a pet, you can overnight them at Woodstock Animal Hospital which is a few doors down the street. My dog Blue enjoyed his stay there very much.)
A Little Bit Different, Quirky and Fantastic
en noviembre 24, 2014
We visited at the end of October as a family of 4 with my 18 and 20 year old daughters. The accommodation is fantastic and very individual, as are the owners who were delightful and nothing was too much trouble!
The rooms all have individual themes and make a great change from corporate hotels, we had a amazing red bathroom for example.
Woodstock is beautiful and well worth a visit, we had a hired a 4 wheel drive and David planned out a route and we drove around for the day, highlight being the Vermont Country Store (& Bar) which was like going back to the times of the Walton's!
Breakfast is fab, and overall had a great relaxing time between visiting Boston and New York
If you are thinking of travelling and need an itinerary, speak to David , he pretty much planned ours
