A Restful Country Inn in a Perfect Location

4.4 on October 24, 2016

Hosts Don and Jill Rose took over this established B&B only a few months before our visit, but we found them to be professionals in all aspects of hospitality, cordiality, housekeeping, food preparation, and service. Jill welcomed us and took us on a tour of the house so we would know our way around. From that time until farewell hugs four days later, we enjoyed our stay and could depend on our hosts to make great sight-seeing recommendations and give us directions. Breakfast was delicious, with a different menu each morning. A wide variety of options made it possible to eat lightly or enjoy a multi-course spread. Homemade snacks and beverages were on the buffet each afternoon. Yummy! Our room was spacious and comfy, and we slept peacefully, in part because there was no TV in our bedroom. (Some reviewers found this a minus, but to us it was a huge plus.) We especially appreciated the restful music we heard in the public areas of the house throughout the day. That's the kind of detail that makes a difference to us. The inn is just a short drive to the heart of Woodstock and other nearby villages and townships – and to some wonderful restaurants. Don and Jill alerted us weeks prior to our trip that making restaurant reservations would be a smart move. We made them in August and are glad we did. Vermont is crowded with tourists in October. We recommend restaurant reservations to anyone planning to go there during leaf-peeping season. We also recommend Applebutter Inn.

Perfect place to stay!

This is my second visit to this charming place. Its unbelievable, but they have made it even better! This is a green hotel and is cleaned with non-toxic cleaning products, something that is important to me too! The linens are plush cotton, and the food was phenomenal! I now have dietary issues which were accommodated with ease and delicious alternatives. Barb and Michael are so welcoming you feel like part of their family! You even get discounts at the local country store! Incredible place to stay!

A comfortable and delightful stay - Barbara and Michael were gracious hosts (and excellent cooks). Very accommodating to dietary needs (kindly offered vegetarian options), and were an absolute pleasure to talk with. Beautiful home and decorated nicely for the holidays! Would highly recommend this inn and will stay there again.

Rented entire inn!

5 on June 12, 2013

Our group of 11 had the most fantastic time during our 2 night stay. We went up to run the covered bridges 1/2 marathon. Barbara & Michael could not have been nicer with our crazy bunch. They went out of their way to serve us breakfast rather late (after the race) which was amazing! Barabra is an amazing baker. Ginger cookies, beautiful muffins & scones kept us all wanting more! The entire home is so warm & wlcoming. A must place to visit! Thanks again from the Miami clan.

great b & b

Everything was perfect: cozy bed with feather-soft comforter, reading before the fire in a common room, a breakfast that was beyond gourmet, and our helpful and welcoming hosts!

The Applebutter Inn was recommended to us by a few people in the wedding party who stayed before and we could not have had a better experience. It was just wonderful and we will be back.

Well worth a visit!

Comfortable bed, clean & great breakfast & good conversation over breakfast.

Wonderful Experience

5 on August 23, 2009

This was my first B & B experience and it couldn't have been better. My brother just got married this weekend and he and my sister inlaw recommended The Applebutter Inn and it was perfect. We stayed in the Cameo Room on the first floor and it was so pleasant and comfy and had our own entrance to the parking lot. One of the best perks you get in staying here is the amazing breakfast! Fresh picked blueberries and strawberries, fresh orange juice and the best muffins ever! I'm definately coming back.

Traditional New England Style

Fantastic, welcoming and cozy. This inn is everything we could wish for when we came to New England. Lovely breakfast, relaxing atmosphere and friendly hosts!

Fabulous Experience

We had a truly memorable experience at this charming bed and breakfast. Run by a kind & intelligent couple, they quietly cook unbelievable breakfasts (creme brulee French toast) and extend warm friendship. Loved it!

Peace, Love, Tranquility

My friends and I (The Boston Ladies) can't say enough about the Inn and most especially Barbara and Michael. They have become very special to us. Good friends, almost relatives. We have to see them at least once a year. Their hospitality, friendliness, and caring nature make you want to keep coming back and we do. We are addicted. The Inn is perfect in every way. We look forward to seeing them again in September. Breakfast is delicious, cozy, and oh so satisfying. Michael, with his dish towel draped across his shoulder making sure everyone has a fresh cup of coffee and Barbara placing each delicious course in front of us is something I look forward to every year. We love you guys. Signed CC

Applebutter Inn

5 on August 15, 2009

My Mom and I were on our way from Warren, Vermont to western Massachusetts when we stopped in Woodstock and found the Applebutter Inn. What a gem! Michael and Barb were fantastic! We received a such a warm welcome and immediately felt right at home. This gorgeous place was like paradise...the rooms were charming and the breakfast was unbelievable-homemade blueberry pancakes, fresh fruit and great company. Honestly, when we had to leave the next day, we were sorry that we could not just spend the remainder of our trip in Woodstock. We will definitely be back-look forward to it!

Perfect Base for Vermont Visit

5 on August 11, 2009

Barbara and Michael are great hosts. They clearly love what they do, and they pass on their enthusiasm. Everything was superb--food, decor, comfort, assistance in local area activities and restaurants. Their attention to the little things is what sets them apart.

This B&B was wonderful (as many are)- but there is a difference with this one- the atmosphere was one that made you feel as though you were in your own home- Breakfast?...Delicious!

Memorable Delight

Warm and welcoming Vermont hospitality at this utterly charming inn. We were pampered during our delightful 2 night stay and treated to exceptionally delicious breakfasts.

Great B&B

New England Charm

Woodstock and its surrounding area, full of quaint shops and lush green areas is home to the Applebutter Inn. The B&B is on the National Registry of Historic Places, and innkeepers Michael & barbara have made it a wonderful, inviting, charming place to stay while visiting this area. The rooms are well-appointed and the food delicious. We loved our stay!

A renaissance weekend getaway

What a wonderful stay we had at the Applebutter Inn! There was something for everyone! beautiful gardens and a charming home for me and a baby grand piano and french speaking guests for my husband! Far exceeded our expectations!

Better than a five star hotel

4.4 on July 29, 2009

Not crazy for bed & breakfasts. Barbra & Michael changed my mind. This was better than a five star hotel.


5 on July 21, 2009

One of the most outstanding B&B's I've ever stayed at! Barbara and Michael were so welcoming and the breakfast was absolutely amazing! I highly recommend this inn!

It was fantastic

Covered Bridges Half Marathon

5 on July 16, 2009

we stayed there with our family and friends, we were there for the Covered Bridges Half Marathon, and had a wonderful time. The hosts were so nice! And the breakfasts were out of this world! Hope to come back again.

Felt like home!

5 on July 06, 2009

A beautiful historic B&B with the aroma of Rhubard cake in the oven greeted us upon our arrival and we knew we had made the right choice! Our room was adorable and sweet with lush linens on a comfortable queen sized bed. Room and bathroom were impeccably clean and updated. Our candle light breakfasts were the highlight of our stay - the lemon souffle pancakes were to die for! Barbara and Michael were wonderful innkeepers and gave us many suggestions for exploring the local attractions and restaurants. And after having a long day in the Vermont sun it was divine to come back to the inn and have a plate of warm molasses cookies waiting for us. Definitely recommend both the area and this particular inn. We will definitely be back...soon I hope!

Beds were heavenly, soft pillows and comforters. Towels were thick and organic cotton. Clean. Best breakfast we ever had! Great location. Warm and comfortable. Delicious cookies and muffins!

A quiet and elegant place to stay.

5 on June 25, 2009

This is our 4th visit to this inn and we were delighted to learn it's now a green hotel. Barbara and Michael are excellent hosts who provide lots of information about surrounding attractions. There are many historical sites to visit including the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller home in Woodstock and Hilldene in Manchester. This inn is quiet and secluded but has access to many other places including Dartmouth. The food is superior and the hosts accommodate individual requests. This is a wonderful place to get away and relax in a very comfortable atmosphere.

Awesome B&B

5 on June 12, 2009

The B&B was lovely and the in keepers wer a charm. The breakfasts were out of this world delicious and served with warmth and delight. Really enjoyed our stay and would stay there again if in the area.

Staying at the Applebutter Inn is like coming home- but with better pancakes than my mom used to make.

warm, welcoming, and wonderful

5 on May 06, 2009

We have now enjoyed multiple stays here and were once again treated to excellent breakfasts--even while accommodating my desire for vegetarian (having noted it from a previous visit!) --and wonderful cookies at night. Lovely accomodations, of course. Michael and Barbara are warm hosts who offer hospitality that welcomes. Many thanks, and certainly looking forward to future visits.

Breath of Fresh Air!

4.0 on December 04, 2008

After months of buziness at work and before the family gathering of Thanksigiving, we took a night to stay at this lovely inn in VT. Michael and Barbara made us feel comfortable from the beginning, upgrading our room because of availability. Both the room and inn were warm and cozy as a fire was kept going in the living room. They pointed us in the right direction for meals and activities in the Woodstock, VT area. The food was amazing! They provided freshly baked cookies with tea in the afternoon. The breakfast was three courses, all homemade including a blueberry muffin, granola/maple yogurt and pancakes. Great stay. I recommend to couples that need a quiet, romantic night away.

Anniversary Delight

5 on November 22, 2008

Machael and Barbara are outstanding hosts. The Inn was delightful and the service impeccable. We truly enjoyed our visit and were treated like old friends. They set the bar for other B&Bs. Barb & Mike went beyond their roles to make our stay truly enjoyable. We will definitely stay again. R & L

Wonderful Stay

5 on October 18, 2008

Our two night stay at this lovely bed and breakfast in the charming hamlet of Taftsville, was wonderful. Barbara and Michael are excellent innkeepers, welcoming people into their home. We loved our room, Baldwin. It was comfortable and cozy. Breakfast was outstanding and the opportunity to visit with fellow travelers at the communal tables while enjoying it was a pleasure. The interior, exterior and gardens of this B&B are warm and welcoming. We look forward to returning.
