About

The Canterbury House is located in the picturesque Village of Woodstock, Vermont. Inspired by the impressive concentration and continuity of late 18th an 19th century architecture, National Geographic Magazine called the village one of the most beautiful in America. The home we invite you into is an 1880 Victorian townhouse that has been completely restored to offer modern comfort combined with historic authenticity. Standards for historic preservation have been followed in renovating The Canterbury House for use as a tourist home. The house is furnished with Period antiques, but is not a museum set piece. It is our intention that it reflect fine craftsmanship and beautiful surroundings combined with the warmth and hospitality reminiscent of a family homecoming.

What The B&B experience is all about!

5 on July 23, 2013

You are immediately treated as close friends. The home and rooms are charming. The location is an easy walk to shops and restaurants in Woodstock. Wonderful!


A Most Enjoyable Stay

5 on February 03, 2013

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Canterbury house for 3 nights. It was our first visit to this delightful B&B but we are looking forward to a return visit. There is much to praise about Canterbury House. The building has a historic feel to it but is also very well maintained. Our room was spacious and comfortable and the food was delicious. One of the things that attracts us to B&B's is the opportunity to meet the hosts. Bob and Sue were not only gracious and attentive hosts but were a delight to talk with. They gave us some great tips on seeing some special sights in Woodstock including Billings Farm which provided us with a most enjoyable Saturday afternoon. Bob and Sue also recommended Malaza where we had a fabulous dinner. We would not have considered a Caribbean Restaurant as a likely choice in Frigid VT but we're so glad we did Bob and Gale O'Toole


Excellent stay at a beautiful B&B

We arrived after a long drive in horrible weather from Boston, following our flight from London, and Bob & Sue couldn't have been more accomodating. Our room was beautiful, lovely and cool and I couldn't wait to get in the beautiful bath tub! Breakfast's were delicious and they had great tips for places and restaurants to see. We just wish we could have stayed longer.

Two wonderful days and nights at Canterbury House and Woodstock. Sue and Bob warmly greeted us - the same genuine hospitality continued throughout our stay. The large living room provided a first-rate space in which to spend the latter part of the evenings with those we were travelling with and with new-found friends. Great breakfast and help in seeing Woodstock and its surroundings. We'll be back to Woodstock and will stay at Canterbury House.


A wonderful B&B in picturesque Woodstock, Vermont

4.0 on August 22, 2011

We have stayed in Woodstock, Vermont for years but had never stayed at the Canterbury House. It is just what you would hope a B&B would be. Period decorated, quaint and immaculate with friendly but not intrusive hosts and a breakfast that can take you all the way to dinner! We met some wonderful people at breakfast, which just adds to the B&B experience. We will definitely stay here again when we visit Woodstock.

What a wonderful experience in lovely Woodstock, VT. Bob and Sue were extremely friendly folks with some great stories to share. They made us feel right at home. I would recommend their inn to any B&B loving people!!


Love It!

This was the 7th year my mom and I came for a weekend visit and we plan to keep the tradition going as long as possible. We enjoy our hosts as well as their beautiful home and the town of Woodstock. We're already looking forward to our visit next year!


A Stay To Remember

4.6 on August 02, 2011

My wife and I spent a weekend at the Canterbury House Bed and Breakfast in July. We couldn’t have been happier with our accommodations. We stayed in the Chaucers Garrett. It is on the third floor and is their largest room. It is tastefully decorated and provides the spaciousness that my wife and I desire when spending time in a B&B. Bob and Sue went out of their way to make sure when we reserved the room that we knew that the second set of stairs was steep, neither my wife or I found the jaunt up to be any problem, and was more than offset by the size, comfort, and privacy the room provided. The room had a sitting area at one end and a king sized bed at the other. The sitting area has a comfortable love seat, chair, small coffee table, and a TV. The bath, as does the room itself, has a mansard ceiling and a full tub and shower. It had Air Conditioning which we found kept the room comfortable on the 90 degree days we had while we were there. Bob and Sue are delightful, knowledgeable hosts they were always friendly and helpful and never far out of reach when we had a question or a need. Breakfasts, cooked by Sue, were delicious. They varied day to day, and provided far more than many of the other inns we have stayed at. Each breakfast entre was accompanied by fruit and a breakfast meat. Conversation at the table was spirited and fun. With both Bob and Sue joining in as they made sure that our cups were full to brim at all times. After breakfast Sue made sure that any guest that had any questions regarding directions or suggestions knew where they going and what they were going to do. As you would expect from innkeepers with 14 years of experience they really know the area. Many of those we met at breakfast had stayed at the Canterbury House before. Many of the guests we met around the table were returning for their 2nd and 3rd times. Having now experienced the Frosts and their B&B we will certainly be returning soon to add yet another family to their ranks.


Another great visit

We had another great visit with Bob and Sue, they are just wonderful people. Sue's breakfast is always delicious and big. We love the Monk's Tale room, plenty of space and always clean thanks to Roberta. I would highly recommend a stay at the Canterbury House if your heading to Vermont.
