It is a quaint and historic, quintessiential New England village tucked away in a beautiful valley in the heart of the Green Mountains. The scenic beauty of the area is remarkable in whatever season you choose to visit. The village and surrounding areas offer a wide variety of attractions including antique shops, glass blowers, potters, galleries, and wonderful restaurants. The Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park and the Billings Farm are within minutes of the Inn. Cross-country and alpine skiing are as close as a ten to thirty minute drive.

Highly Recommended!

My husband and I just stayed at the Ardmore this past week and we loved it! Our room (the "Mary Azarian" room) was very clean and nicely decorated, had gorgeous windows (easily covered by light-blocking curtains so sleeping was easy) and the bed was SO comfortable. Charlotte, the innkeeper, was wonderful! Every morning she made delicious breakfasts and always had great suggestions for places to visit, things to do, and restaurants to check out for lunch and dinner. Every idea she had was excellent - the spots to visit were interesting and worth the trip, and the restaurants were great - wonderful food and definitely worth returning to! We will definitely recommend the Ardmore Inn to friends and family!

Innkeeper Response

Wonderful experience

We love the village of Woodstock, VT but hadn't stayed there before. We choose the Ardmore Inn from the B&B.com website and we're so glad we did. The host was charming and the breakfast was fabulous! We highly recommend it!


Great Place to Stay in Woodstock

4.6 on June 24, 2012

I recently stayed at the Ardmore for three nights with my daughter while attending the Dartmouth reunion in Hanover, NH. It was worth the drive between Woodstock and Hanover. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and hope to return. Woodstock is a great place to visit but the Ardmore made it even more worth visting. It is very clean, the rooms are fresh with great beds and bedding. Charlotte makes extraordinary breakfasts and there is always a treat like cookies and lemonade to greet you upon your return in the afternoon and evening. Charlotte and Cary are great innkeepers and make you feel so welcome with their generosity and hospitality.


Exceptional experience

5 on October 18, 2011

We have stayed at many B&B's, but the Ardmore Inn is the best we have ever experienced. The hosts, Charlotte and Cary, were so friendly and warm that we felt immediately at home. The rooms are all beautifully furnished, the linens wonderful, and the breakfasts are just delicious and inventive from fresh ingredients, and are beautifully presented. Even the table linens were different each morning! The books and prints in the library and and in each room were extraordinary, pointing out the owners' love of literature, art, and Vermont! And the fact that there are no tv's or phones made the experience even better. Freshly made cookies each afternoon accompanied by cider, coffee, or tea, was just wonderful. They even provided cookies on the morning that we reluctantly left them. We would return in a heartbeat!!

Gail and I have been visiting the Ardmore for several years now. We go twice a year, during the autumn colors and the December holidays...... I can not say enough good things about the warmth and pleasantries we receive. We feel like we are not just going to a B&B, but rather visiting family!!! The Hollingsworths are truly special people!!

Lovely surprise

Charlotte was just the right mix of friendly and helpful and unobtrusive. The room was large but cozy and had a great vibe. And the food was delicious and fresh (fresh from the oven homemade scones anyone?). A+.

Our first stay at a B & B was fantastic. Beautiful rooms, gourmet breakfasts and a innkeeper that was informative about the quaint village of Woodstock, Vt. The inn location was easily walkable to all village stores and attractions. The local restaurants were exceptional. I would not hesitate to stay at the Ardmore Inn on our next visit to Vermont.

Ardmore Inn Stay During Emily's Dartmouth Medical School Graduation

5 on July 03, 2011

We enjoyed every moment at the Ardmore Inn. Charlotte, the Ardmore Innkeeper, treated us like special guests, and guided us through the rites of passages for Dartmouth graduation ceremonies. My graduate was actually soo busy with revelry. We appreciated Charlotte's guidance. The best part of graduation events, other than the joy of watching my only child take the Hippocratic Oath, was staying at the Ardmore Inn, Woodstock, Vermont. My concern about distance to Hanover was unfounded. The Ardmore Inn and Woodstock were the perfect respite during graduation because of congestion, unavailability of dining and space to move in Hanover. Charlotte prepared the best synchronized to order breakfast for all guests. I watched her prepare her recipe from scratch for scones that were the best, flaky delicious ever. The Raspberry Jam served was perfect! Her frittata recipe, garden fresh vegetables, baked not fried, superb. All-in-all meals were the best ever and the stay was perfect. The beds were exquisite and linens, the finest. The Ardmore Library reflected Charlotte’s eclectic taste in literature with local history and Nature books. Her prior experience in publishing and books was evident by the relevant selected books both in the Library Room and disbursed throughout the Inn at strategic locations. The daily papers were always available on the period early American library desk. The Ardmore furnishings are perfect New England Americana. By the way, Charlotte accommodated my 96 y old Mom and me and made this visit a great event and memory for us. What more could I ask for in life than to have my mother be at her granddaughters’ graduation from Dartmouth Medical School and have every part of the event go perfectly. Maybe Emily will return to Dartmouth for a graduate program or specialty training and we can stay at the ARDMORE. Charlotte went well above and beyond providing excellent accommodations. I want to return, soon!


A wonderful B&B for a wedding weekend

4.8 on June 03, 2011

My husband and I just stayed at the Ardmore Inn over Memorial Day weekend while attending a wedding in Woodstock, Vermont. As innkeepers Charlotte and Cary Hollingsworth were terrific. We arrived a little early after a very long drive from Virginia but our room was ready. Charlotte had lemonade and homemade cookies awaiting us in the dining room. We stayed in Tully on the second floor facing the street but noise was not a problem with the air conditioner running. I loved the sound of the church bells from across the street. The room was clean and attractive in decor. (There was a portable hanging rack for our clothes rather than a closet or wardrobe but that didn't matter to us.) The breakfast that Charlotte fixes is outstanding. Other wedding guests stayed at the Ardmore Inn and they agreed that the food was delicious! Woodstock is a charming New England town. I hope to get back someday and if I do I will definitely stay at the Ardmore.


Every detail taken care of
